*** Read the enclosed how-to-change to change the odds ***

This mod adds the random possibility (50%) for a sim returning home from work of attempting to purchase groceries (enough to restock your fridge). If they do, they will bring it in, just as if they had already purchased it at the store on their way home.

Note that any familial greeting should occur first, then the delivery of groceries or pizza.

NEW: Now delivers groceries or pizza from either carpool or ownable cars.

As an added bonus, this mod removes the "I'm home" animation that Family sims sometimes perform.

This hack now includes improvements from monique's version (which checks for a basket or pizza before delivering), at:

So far, I haven't noticed any problems, but please let me know if you see any.

Yes. It costs just as much as if they had gone to the store (i.e. just like delivery only you don't have to add $50 and you don't have to take the market basket from the delivery sim).

I haven't tested it with the old game, actually. It doesn't do anything remotely Uni-related, though, so it *should* work with both.

This is great for added realism! I might have to try this out (but first, I have to remove Inge's auto-refill fridge hack).

Edit:
You might not have to take it out since the fridge auto-refills at midnight and technically you come home during the day. Anyway, it's a global hack it overrides all fridges) so you might just want to test it anyway.

I've been waiting for something like this! I used to go shopping right after classes or work (before classes went out for summer holidays and i started working nights O.o) and it always bugged me that sims had to take three hours of their day just to buy stinkin' groceries (and then return at the same time they left, but tired, hungry, and in need of a shower thus throwing off their whole routine for the day!), rather than skip off to the grocer right after work, or on lunch breaks!

Hey this is great I was wondering would it do it and make it broke. Like you only have 80 dollars and you have to pay the maid 70. Or which one would take precident. It works so I guess should figure it out this was a great ideal

Vyksin80, I was thinking about it but it will require more coding (and more testing), so maybe in a future version.

sasha7617, this tries to budget the action the moment your working sim reaches the mailbox. If it cannot budget it (for lack of funds), it will just quietly fail (and play like normal).

I've had this in my game for a while now and it works great so far. No problems at all and very cool when they restock the fridge so I don't have to pay attention to it. Thanks much for this one.

Hi!
I really like this hack! I've been using it for a while with no problems at all..
The only thing is that it happens too many times IMO.. Is there a way to reduce the possibilities with SimPE ?
Thanks
