These are custom interactions + some extras that are used to make custom Drinks, plus a script that adds the interactions to various bars in game. They were originally posted by icemunmun in this upload but we moved them over to the group account to be able to maintain them better.

The List of Updated drinks


Custom Bar Drinks by icemunmun

(Using this mod without the Custom Bar drinks may lead to Last exception errors in some cases)


Compatible with Compatible with PC: 1.77.146.1030 / Mac: 1.77.131.1230


Release Notes:

26th August 2021 - HotFix

Restored the missing Custom Cocktail menu on Pro Bars for lots without simple living challenge

Update 19th August : Version 4-4

4-5
1.Updated For Cottage Living
- picnic Basket compatible
- Group Cooking Compatible
- Simple Living Challenge Comaptible
- Added New Cottage living fridges
2. New Resources by icemunmun




Installation:

  • If you update from a icemunmun version, make sure you remove the old files( icemunmun_CustomDrinkScript.ts4script and Bar_CustomDrinks_Interaction.package )! They are renamed now, so will not overwrite automatically.
  • Make sure script mods are allowed in the game setting.
  • Unzip the zip and put BOTH .package and .ts4script files in your /Mods folder.
  • The ts4script file can go only one layer deep with folders by default. In other words, it should be either,
    Code:
    \Sims 4\Mods\mtsfoodgroup_drinks-custom-interactions.ts4script, or
    \Sims 4\Mods\Subfolder\mtsfoodgroup_drinks-custom-interactions.ts4script
    



Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: My game version is up to date, but the [xxx Custom Drinks] interaction still won't show up from bars/fridges.
A: Have you allowed script mods in the game setting?
A: Is your Custom Food Interaction also the latest version?
A: Are BOTH .package and .ts4script files installed?
A: Is your .ts4script in the right place? Please read the Installation section for detailed information.
A: Make sure you didn't accidentally install duplicated files in different folders.

Q2: All interactions show up in game, but when I click the interactions there is no drink or only certain drinks in the selection menu.
A: This post only provides the scripts that enable custom drinks to show up in game. You need to get the actual drinks meshes and their crafting recipes from other posts. Browse the #Custom Drink tag to get custom recipes.
A: Each recipe requires certain mixology level. If your sim doesn't have enough skill, some recipes won't appear!

Q3: Mod Conflict Detector says this mod conflicts with something. Should I be worried?
A: The Conflict Detector is an useful tool, but it can't be always right. Due to the way it detects conflicts, there are chances the tool lists an okay mod as broken or conflicted or corrupted. We'd say you don't have to be much worried about the error especially when the "conflicts" are between the mods by Foodgroup or its members. Some "conflicts " are even intended and we are fully aware of them.

Q4: Some drinks are stuck in inventory and I can't get rid of them.
A: This is a known EA issue, not something caused by custom drinks. To fix this glitch, you can simply reset your sim or have the sim travel to another lot.

Q5: The script isn't translated in my language. Can I still use the script?
A: Yes, you can. Localization doesn't have to do with how the script works. English menu will appear if the interaction menus haven't translated in your language yet.



Localisation: Chinese (wuccwzt), Dutch (ElenaInTheSims), Korean (ohmysims), Italian (InfinitiveSky), Portuguese (Akin_), French (WaShay)

  • If you want to contribute to another language, you can simply translate the texts above and leave a comment or attach a text file. Please DO NOT send us an STBL file extracted by s4pe any more. We have a couple of issues with directly importing string files, so would rather manually type them. Thank you!



How to Use:

This mod adds the following two interaction to the professional bars in game :

1. Make Custom Drinks



2. Buy Custom Drinks (The drink will be found in your inventory after buying.)




Miscellaneous

Compatibility:
  • Base Game Compatible, although certain EP/GP/SP/CC are required for the certain interactions to work.
  • Whether or not the recipes are available on custom stoves/fridges depends on what object tuning those are using ‒ if you find one where it doesn’t work, post a link and we can add its ID to the script.
  • Should not conflict with any other mods as a script has been used. However the autonomous drink making function may not work properly with autonomy suppressing mods.

When I scan with mod conflict detector it says this newest version is broken. Similarly when I scanned your first fix a couple of days ago it said it was the wrong content type/needs unpacking. I'd love to know what to do about this. Thanks so much!

The first files had got corrupted during compiling, compressing or uploading , so as a results the interactions were not appearing ( we apologise for that). The newest version should work as it is supposed to. Does the interactions appear on the professional bar ? Mod conflict detector sometimes gives false results when similar resources are included in more than one mod.From the reports i have gotten this version works correctly.

Thanks for the speedy response. I'm having trouble getting my game to work at all right now, so haven't had a chance to test it yet. I'll let you know if I have any problems. Thanks for all your hard work!

I think this mod or some other food mod could be causing some CAS traits selector UI to get glitched or hidden. Whenever I put back, it causes some glitch with that. Is specifically with the Food/Custom Drinks mods.

I tried taking other mods and script ones too, but this keeps coming back if I let custom drinks mod or necrodog minipizzas.
Maybe is a conflict with some other mod? Or with trait mods? Or why would even be connected. Modding is such a hard thing! Thanks for the work guys.

@ElenaInTheSims, @InfinitiveSky: Thank you so much for the translation! We'll post an updated version as soon as possible

Code:
Make Custom Drinks / Buy Custom Drinks / Grab Custom Drinks
Thanks for ordering! The Drink {0.SimFirstName} purchased can be found in {M0.his}{F0.her} inventory.
*do not translate the texts inside {}.

And here is a little announcement for anyone who is interested in localization: Please DO NOT send us an STBL file extracted by s4pe any more. We have a couple of issues with directly importing string files, so would rather manually do it. You can simply translate the texts above and leave a comment or attach a text file. Thank you!

Nevermind, just realized that this is custom drinks mod, I need to ask about my issue at the custom foods mod. Sorry if there was any confusion.

Yes, the custom drink interaction mod itself works fine since the patch. All the drink recipes, however, have been broken. So basically there's nothing we can do with this mod. We are working on fixes. But please be patient this will take awhile.

Thank you for the updated information! I had spent the last day trying to figure out what was wrong with the drinks. It is good to have the answer. I appreciate all the hard work and I am more than willing to wait.

Hi. Just a question to verify if I can use this set of mods along with coolspear's Storage Mod and Food and Drink Mod ?

I don't think the mods conflict because the storage mod is an object tuning mod and ours are script mods. And none of the mod contains overlapping interaction, anyway.

If and when the food/drink mod itself is broken, it is probably due to EA patches. (I'm not talking about the individual food recipes - recipe is a different story)
If our mods conflict with others, it is probably due to (1) override mods that suppresses eating/drinking autonomy, or (2) some old food-related mods that aren't compatible with the latest patch (and the food/drink mods).
