about:

This is custom food that sims can prepare on the stove.
  • YOU NEED CUSTOM FOOD INTERACTION v1.9.1 or higher for the recipe to be available in game.
  • No cooking skill is required (Lv1)
  • Any mushroom can be used as ingredient but not required.
  • Tagged as Seafood.
  • Cooking steps and props (chopsticks and bowl) are customized.
  • Available for all age groups.


Compatibility:
  • Your game version must be at least 1.26.96 (aka Toddler Patch) for this recipe to work!
  • Made with PC Version 1.20.60.1020
  • Basegame Compatible, but the dish will also show up in the restaurant menu if you have Dine Out installed.
  • Should not conflict with any other mod.
  • Safe to merge with other files.


How to use this recipe:
  1. Make sure your game version is up-to-date.
  2. Make sure you installed all the required files (both recipe and custom interaction script)
  3. Click either refrigerators or stoves in game and choose [Cook Custom Meal] pie menu.
  4. Choose the recipe you'd like to cook from the list. Please note that recipes won't appear If your sim doesn't have the required skill.




Localisation:
  • English, Czech, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian (all translated by myself using the strings of other custom food and google translator.); Chinese (parkjoonho), Dutch (ElenaInTheSims), Polish (simmingstuff), Spanish (alexpilgrim), Swedish (heihu).

Now this recipe is translated by all the language supported. But still, feel free to correct any mistake and add suggestions!

Code:
English / Octopus Udon / Prepare Octopus Udon / Serve Octopus Udon


Note: [Prepare xxx] is an interaction name for making a single meal, while [Serve xxx] is an interaction name for making a group meal. These are shown in the sim's queue while they are making the food.

Miscellaneous:

Known Issues:
  • Since the group meal mesh doesn't have proper geostates, the pot always look full even after sims eat up all the servings.

Polygon Counts:
  • Single meal: 998 vertices / 1344 polygons
  • Group meal: 1578 vertices / 2057 polygons
  • Custom chopsticks: 64 vertices / 40 polygons
  • Custom empty bowl: Same as EA bowl

Credit:
  • Plasticbox for the custom interaction script and tutorial.
  • Graycurse for helping the FoodGroup improve the script.
  • Noir and Dark Sims for the food mesh. Bowl and pot are EA meshes edited by me.
  • Made with Sims4Studio, Blender, and Photoshop

This is ... much too cute to eat. But in the case of this dish, I can absolutely understand why my sim would want to make endless photos of their food before starting to eat. =)
Thank you very much!

That's extremely cute!!!
Oh, forget to tell that my sim cooked a Tempura Shrimp Udon autonomously last night without my orders....

BTW Octopus Udon right form in Traditional Chinese is 章魚烏冬面 not 章鱼乌龙面
&the last one Tempura Shrimp Udon must be 天婦羅烏冬面 not 炸虾乌龙面, ←this is sth simplified and incorrect.

It doesn't show up in my game. I added the custom foods package to the Mods folder. Do you have to have something other than the basic game? Maybe it doesn't work on a Mac?

No, I've seen all my custom food works both on PC and Mac. The troubleshooting below may help.

1. Halfway through cooking the interaction will be canceled and the sims will wave their arms around complaining there isn't enough space.
>>>> Make sure your game version is up to date. It should be at least PC Version 1.20.60.1020 / Mac Version 1.20.60.1220 (the Dine Out patch.)

2. I updated my game, but [Cook Custom Meal] interaction still won't show up from stoves/fridges.
>>>> Make sure your custom interaction script is also the latest version.
>>>> The ts4script file can go only one layer deep with folders by default. In other words, it should be either,

\Sims 4\Mods\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script, or
\Sims 4\Mods\Subfolder\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script

As I already stated the package is already in the Mods folder and with the latest version to go with the updated game. The only difference I can see is that the package doesn't have the '.ts4script' on the download package. Would that keep it from showing up in the game?

Have you downloaded the Custom Food Interaction mod? Both (mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script) AND (mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.package) files should be installed as well as this Udon recipe.

You were correct, it was missing the script. Works fine now. Thanks for helping .
