Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated 12 Jul 2007. I have corrected the language strings for the non-US users - there was some issue with them not saving in SimPe, but it's sorted out now. If your menus do not display correctly, then please download again. If you are not having issues there's no need to redownload**


Presented here, for your sims dining pleasure, Lime Seared Prawns. One of the local restaraunts shared the secret recipie with me so I could pass it along to you

There was a lot of work put into these but I don't begrudge the time it took. I had to make new meshes for the prep stage as well as add in the actual steps. Through doing the 4 restaraunt meals I have learned exactly how foods work & because of that I am able to make other, new foods YAY!!

As you can see, all of the animations are available. The sim properly prepares the food, cooks it & the food disappears from the plate as it should. Everything works - burned food, fresh food, Make/Make Many & Put Away Leftovers. The sim requires cooking skill level 5 & because these new foods came out with NightLife you'll need to have it installed.


A bit of history on this: Squinge originally extracted all of the restaraunt meals & I had updated them for him last year. The problem was that those meals never had any preparation animations. Squinge has given me a lot of encouragement plus I am just plain determined. Finally I have finished making the new meshes & figuring out how to properly animate these. So, please, if you have the old versions, delete them because (with Squinge's agreement) I have used his original GUIDs - we are trying to be a bit economical with the GUIDs. If you look inside the file you will see Squinge's name in there - it is my way of ackowledging him even though I started these new foods completely new. You can find Squine at InSiminator

Other Restaraunt Meals at Home foods:

Nectarine Tartlette
Fried Chicken
Filet Mignon

I hate to sound like an idiot, but where do foods go? Downloads folder?

Ooh Morague, this series makes me giddy! I've been wanting it since Nightlife first came out. Thank you!! :D

Little_Sven: Yes, foods go in the downloads folder. I suggest you create a special "hacks" or "foods" subfolder for them so you can easily find and remove hacks & foods if they conflict with a new EP.

Yay! You don't understand how much I love having new food in the game. Eating is the one thing sims do the most and having a nice variety is essential. Keep up the great work.

The fact that you took your time and properly made/extracted/animated this food for our simmies, makes me want to hug you!
Determination is a wonderful thing

I love the food and quite like the dress your model is wearing. Could you tell where I would find it or which EP/SP it is from. Thanks.

I found the recolors at Mellisenda's Sims 2 You need the FFS bonus dress mesh from Target, though.

I'm not sure what you mean, but the file downloads fine for me. Sometimes, you might have to try a few times, if it doesn't work the first time or two. I know I sometimes get error messages when downloading files, and in at least 95% of the cases, it's just a temporary snag.

I wish I HAD some of those prawns for dinnner tonight. They look delicious, and with just a bit of help from a certain mod, I can call my Sims to dinner to enjoy it as well. Thanks for this inventive download and all the other ones you've done.

Thanks for this! I order this everytime my Sims eat out (which isn't often..)

Do I need the custom plate for this food to work?
