This mod will allow you to access shops as long as the owner is in the area. All you have to do is go to the counter where the the shop owner normally stands, and press the action button (the same one you normally use!) to open the shop. With the power of a little file editing, you can even use the shops no matter where the owner is!
The creator also provides a config file that you can edit that will let you choose which shops you want this feature to work for. You can also choose to allow access to shops when the owner isn’t even in the shop area.
– Pierre: Lets you buy from Pierre’s shop when he is in the shop (even if he is arranging the shelves)
– Ranch: Lets you buy from the Ranch when Marnie is on the ranch (including the kitchen (because takes hours to prepare a good meal))
– Carpenter: Lets you buy from Robin when she is the house
– FishShop: Lets you buy from Willy when he is at the beach
– IceCreamStand: Lets you buy ice cream from the stand even if there is no one there
– IceCreamInAllSeasons: Enables you to buy ice cream in all seasons
– ShopsAlwaysOpen: Ignore the owner location (or season for the ice cream stand), so if you can reach the counter, you can buy from the shop.
