Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well I'm so thrilled that I learned how to make non-default food! I'm a whiz at making drinks, still need to get the hang of actual food though.

Well today I have for you some really nice looking (I think so) Simlish Drinks. When your sim serves them, they will have caps on them. When your sim is drinking them, there is no cap. I've fixed the self referencing in the BHAVs and given them new GUIDs so these will not overwrite any custom or Maxis foods. These are available to you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and you don't need any cooking skill to make them. I've also added a brand new pie menu choice for serve drinks.. or have a drink...

Oh, and the egg nog is great for those New Year's parties that come with Happy Holiday Stuff (I really miss having that SP).

Also, if you are wondering why my sim is all wrinkly, it's because I personally have the most fun playing wrinkly elder sims for some reason, don't know why

Here's what's included:

Milk
Chocolate Milk
Egg Nog
Cola
Diet Cola
Root Beer
Lemon Lime Soda
Strawberry Soda
Cream Soda
Grape Soda
Fruit Punch
Orange Soda

Fway has released A Fix for the food judging table in Freetime, I suggest you check it out! It will make custom drinks fully-functional with Freetime EP!

Great idea, great execution, great job! I especially like the cap/no cap thing, that's a very nice touch. And Simlish! Yay Simlish! .

The bottles look great, they're functional, and they're labelled in Simlish! Whee!

I love this! I pay huge attention to detail and it drives me nuts when people screw with the pie menu and don't make it match the other writing. (E.G., "have drinks" instead of what you did, "Have a Drink" kinda deal. I'm a grammar nut. lol) I love the fact they're labeled in Simlish, too!! All around awesome work. :D

I love these...just as much as I love the Crystal Ball and recolours! Thanks for sharing these jon! My Sims (at least those who live in Simtopia) will absolutely adore having a choice of drinks.

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Thank you so much! I love Sim food, and these woderful drinks (milk) and all the others make their life so complete. In our world people are always having a drink of some kind. This really makes my day.

Ah sorry, brain fart. The food judging table. I remember when I downloaded Fansee's non-default sodas and things the judge would reset (or an object error would appear with testing cheats) which kept the judge from judging the food even after pressing "reset" or "delete" from the prompt.

Default What can I say that hasn't been said?
Just looking at these screenshots makes me feel like it is summer, somewhere. Cold and rainy here, but I can imagine one of those delicious, cold drinks held in my hot, sweaty hand while I lift the top and bring the bottle to my lips. Aaaaaah! Yummy!

I tested them on the Judging Table and they do cause an error.
Also, in the "Make..." menu, they all show up as "Food-Drink-Pepsil-Menu" or something like that. Just thought I'd let you know. But I love these drinks, especially since they're in Simlish! :D

you can still use it with Freetime, just don't enter it into a cooking contest.

What about the menu error?

Edit: WE can avoid entering them, but if an NPC tries, we'll just have to leave the log.

I loved these drinks, but when I went to "put away leftovers" they caused a problem and would delete my current leftovers and wouldn't allow my sims to use that fridge anymore. They couldn't get leftovers, serve meal, nothing. The action would just cancel itself out. I never had this issue before ever so I'm guessing it was this particular download because everything worked just fine before I used the "put away leftovers" of the drinks. I appreciate the opportunity, but I'm having to delete them from my downloads folder. Was a great idea though. Nice Job.
