Stardew Valley fixed those blue floors on Ginger Island

The Nintendo Switch version was updated today to fix the blue floor bug and a ‘zoom offset’ issue

After a few weeks of playing Stardew Valley 1.5 on Nintendo Switch, I’m at the point – 60-some hours into the game, and a bit into Year 3 – where I’m prioritizing Ginger Island now that I’m cool with most of the villagers and the Community Center and Movie Theater quests are wrapped up. Ginger Island is a huge time-sink with lots to do everywhere I look. There’s just one problem: the ground is blue!

One of the known issues with Stardew version 1.5 on Switch is that in certain areas – namely, the northern part of Ginger Island near the Volcano Dungeon – there’s a “blue floor bug.” It doesn’t affect the whole map, of course, but it’s pretty distracting. There’s also an issue with the zoom-out options, though I haven’t seen it yet as someone who now exclusively plays in split-screen co-op.

Both of these bugs were fixed today in an update, according to Stardew creator ConcernedApe. I booted up the game this morning to take a look and had to resist playing “just one more day.”

Here’s what the blue floor bug looked like before, near the Volcano Dungeon entrance:

The blue floor bug really stands out on Ginger Island.

And here’s what that it looks like after updating Stardew Valley to Ver. 1.5.4.1:

I'm glad the Volcano Dungeon is short and sweet compared to the Skull Cavern.

It’s a jarring comparison!

The only other gripe I’ve had with Stardew on Switch is that there’s stuttering in split-screen. The stutters are short – and only really cause problems if you’re fighting enemies or fishing, if at all – but they can be prevalent day-to-day. We’ve gotten used to them, but not everyone will be able to adjust.

Now, if I could just scrounge up more Golden Walnuts…
