Working with patch: 1.90.358.1030 (26/07/2022)

Hello, everybody! If you've ever played Off-The-Grid in The Sims 4, you must have noticed that most of the recipes we're used to seeing are not available with this lot challenge on. It was a big annoyance for me, and I couldn't find any fixes so I tried something myself, although I'm a complete beginner. This mod allows you to cook more Base Game recipes, including cakes! Now there is no need to travel to a lot with power when you want to bake your sim a simple birthday cake.

The recipes appear when you click on the stove and choose 'Cook Off-The-Grid'
  • It works with off-the-grid group cooking too, also by clicking on the stove.

So far I've only added base game homestyle cooking recipes, but I plan to update it with more foods in the future, including pack-specific ones.

How to Install
  • Place the package files in your mods folder
  • The main file is necessary for the mod to work
  • Download the other files too only if you own the packs they require

Recipes Currently Included:


Compatibility & Conflicts
This mod overrides the following and will conflict with any mods that override the same tuning:
  • stove_StartCrafting_OffTheGrid
  • startGroupCrafting_GroupCooking_Stove_OffTheGrid
  • stove_StartCrafting_OffTheGrid_RequiredIngredients
  • startGroupCrafting_GroupCooking_Stove_OffTheGrid_RequiredIngredients

This is the first mod I'm posting here and I'm very open to feedback! If you find any problems let me know!
There were also some recipes that didn't work so I couldn't add them. If anybody is willing to help me figure them out, I'll list them down below:



Thank you so much!

Did you check if those recipes tunings have the utility_info POWER added? If so, deleting that might help.

Hello, thank you! They all do, I changed it to disabled, but I'll test deleting it. Although the problem seems to be with the cooking process - the ones that don't work sims will start preparing and will stop when it's time to take it to stove, or they will put it on the stove and stop. The game's recipes mention a lot of off-the-grid specific tuning (I hope i'm using the right terms) and I tried doing the same thing for all of them but it works for some and for others it doesn't, even if they are prepared in very similar ways.

Wonderful idea. I always want more food for my medieval sims.
