Enabling and Using Legacy Randomization in Stardew Valley

If you're a seasoned player of Stardew Valley, you may have noticed a shift in the RNG system with the 1.6 update.p This update brought changes that disrupted familiar gameplay patterns, like the clay farming exploit. However, there's a way to bring back the old RNG system with Legacy Randomization.

Before diving into the details, it's essential to note that Legacy Randomization is only available for new game starts. That means if you're deep into a save file, you won't be able to switch back to the previous RNG style.

To enable Legacy Randomization, start a new game from the main menu, and navigate to the options menu at the bottom left corner of the main box. Here, you can toggle various features, such as nighttime monster spawns and faster bundle completion. The crucial setting we're interested in is 'use legacy randomization'.

When you hover over this option, a warning popup will appear, cautioning that most players should keep this feature disabled. Despite the warning, the choice ultimately lies with you. If you prefer the old RNG system and want to relive the days of grinding out hundreds of Clay, Legacy Randomization is the way to go.
