I'm a coffee person and in TS2 it always bugged me how you couldn't sit and have a nice cup of coffee with your guests because there was no way to tell them to have a cup. Not until we got the tea set from BV that we were able to drink and socialize outside of the bar, and so the tea set quickly became my favourite object in the whole game.

This picture pretty much sold TS3 for me, because I thought that finally, we can sit and have coffee and socialize, unfortunately that was not the case at all as we now know.

What this mod does
- It will replace the "Serve Hot Beverages" interaction in the coffee machine with "Serve Coffee" (if you are a party animal/evil/good the name is the original name, the reason I changed the default name was because I wanted to see the word coffee somewhere).

- A new interaction will appear to all served trays of coffee called "Call For Coffee". This will open a Pie menu picker with all the sims on the lot, from which you can select up to four people to come and take a cup.

- A cup of coffee costs 10§ if you drink it on a community lot (through the new interaction or the normal ones). If the lot is owned by a Sim, the lot owner gets the money. Every Sim who drinks, pays. But you will see the money animations only for the active household. There is no pop-up telling that the owner earned money from the coffee, because in this case it's kind of trivial info, so I left it out.
- I implemented the rabbit hole lot owning rule, you can read about it in here.
- A Sim will no longer automatically take a cup of coffee after serving a tray.
- The default time for drinking coffee is 15 minutes, I changed it to 30.

Changing the drinking time
- Open the mod in S3PE.
- Select the xml named HotBevarageMachine.... and press the notepad button
- Modify the following value
 <kHotBeverageFoodUnits value="30">

Translations: I don't translate my mods any more. But I will always add the STBL files if you want to translate/change the texts for your own game.

Compatibility: This will clash with mods if they have done changes in the coffee machine/eating codes. But so far I have not seen any conflicts.

None to my knowledge, but if you find anything, please tell.

Have fun

Thank you SO much for this mod! It has bugged me that the sims in TS3 aren't able to just sit together and chat the way they did in TS2 - they blow through dinner, and will only sit on the sofa to watch TV or read. I'm looking forward to inviting friends for a civilized kaffee klatsch

this is great! i was wondering why i could make the coffee, but it would just be 4 cups for my sim because nobody else would drink it.

This looks cool. I love how you can pick which sims to call for the coffee instead of calling everyone. Thanks

This is fantastic! I don't generally use the coffee machine, but maybe I'll start to now!

Do you really need World Adventures to make this nice mod work? Because that is an expansion I will never buy. It adds nothing to the neighborhood and should have been a stand alone game like Sims stories.

Really nice way of doing it. I really hope you can do this to other things, such as watch movies together (at the cinema/theater), go to skill classes together and many more.

Most likely you don't need WA, but I added it because I do have it. If you have ambition and are patched to the max you should be fine.

emino: I have had the same ideas you have, but I'll rather wait and see what LN brings with it because they have group outing possibilities, maybe then you can do more things togeather.

I think this is such a good idea but i don't have HELS. I have WA and ambitions though. Do you need HELS for it to work ?

1. Check your frame-work
2. Try out another mod to see if mods work in general
3. If you have other mods try this one only to see if you have a conflict

The reason you don't see anything is because I override the original ITUN files that handle the interactions, and in there I have "removed" them from the object, while adding the overrided interactions to the object happens in code. So now the ITUN files are activated, but not the code part, which makes me guess you problem is point 1.

im having some problems with this interaction. when my sims make the coffee and i click on the 'serve coffee' icon and choose the person my sim would like to have coffee, both of my sims will get stuck. its like they won't move at all i can't cancel the drinking coffee actions. did i do something wrong? i am playing the WA version no patches.
thanks in advance!
