This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


Here are some default replacement recolors of 8 game meals in an effort to make them look more 'period' without going to the trouble of re-meshing. They aren't perfect because the game uses horrible mapping on some of the ingredients. Normally I use custom foods, but I don't control all my Sims every minute and they always go strait for the mac & cheese or tv dinner when I'm not looking. So, my goal was to get rid of all modern colors. Milk cartons, jars and cans were made to look ceramic or terracotta, while boxes got a woven rafia texture and bags became jute or burlap sackcloth. All meals have a new, wooden cutting board. Several meals received new names and some had their raw and cooked appearance changed.

Meals include:
  • Cereal (Now called 'Puffed Rice' with blackberries)
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Mac & Cheese (Now called 'Kasha' [specifically buckwheat])
  • Omelette
  • Pancakes
  • Lunch Meat Sandwich (Now called 'Salami Sandwich' on whole grain bread)
  • Spaghetti
  • TV Dinner (Now called 'Roasted Fowl', Comes with broccoli pilaf and carrots in a <disposable?!> terracotta tray)

Remember these are default replacements which means putting them in your Sims2->Downloads folder will automatically change your foods. To use the original foods, remove/delete these files.

I'm a huge fan of the old Brother Cadfael series of mystery novels and these were just what I needed for my sim monastary! The monks of Saints Peter & Paul are most grateful.

I don't have any medieval sims or neighborhoods, but this is WAY more attractive than the default food from the game. You should work for EA games because you make way better looking food than they do.

Wow this is awesome
Even though i think i will use it, i'm not a huge fan of medieval, i, like, prefer the normal, "modern" stuff.
But it's so well done that i can't resist downloading it
I won't use it for movies cause if i'll make movies they wont be for medieval, but i can use this stuff just for fun game, which includes all the stuff for mod the Sims
I ALWAYS thought it's proper if i use CC only for movies, i mean i think i can use them just for a fun game, but it's like more proper for movies. But now i can enjoy that stuff in a just for fun game. Oh well i really writed some stuff that you don't care about, i just had to :P
