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

This group account is currently maintained by plasticbox, icemunmun, graycurse, necrodog and ohmysims.

Please check only with this mod before reporting script errors

Remove the Jambalaya Custom Recipe Files as that is broken



Compatible with Update PC: 1.77.146.1030 / Mac: 1.77.131.1230

Please always make sure to keep the interaction script and package files up to date

Release Notes:

Update 22nd September, 2021 : Version 6-3

Update 6-3


1. New Resources by icemunmun
2. Removed some autonomous behaviours

Note - For some recipes you have to hover over the menu to find out the required ingredients. For recipes which have large, family and single serving - the ingredient list appear after you exapnd the recipe




Quote:
Please note that the recipe lists by members are only the announcement of upcoming recipes. We will update this post to link to the actual recipes each time new one is released. You can also use #Custom Food tag for searching completed recipes.



Installation:

  • If you update from a pbox version, make sure you remove the old files! 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_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script, or
    \Sims 4\Mods\Subfolder\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script
    

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Halfway through cooking the interaction will be canceled and the sims will wave their arms around complaining there isn't enough space.
A: Is your game version up to date?
A: Is your food recipes version up to date?

Q2: My game version is up to date, but the [Cook Custom Meal] interaction still won't show up from stoves/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.

Q3: All interactions show up in game, but when I click the interactions there is no food or only certain food in the selection menu.
A: This post only provides the scripts that enable custom food to show up in game. You need to get the actual food meshes and their cooking recipes from other posts. Browse the #Custom Food tag to get custom recipes.
A: Each recipe requires certain cooking level. If your sim doesn't have enough skill, some recipes won't appear!
A: Some recipes only show up at certain times of the day. Please read the Contents of the Package section for detailed information.

Q4: 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.

Q5: My sims are obsessed to custom food.
A: It is a known issue. Please read the Known Issue section below for more information.

Q6: 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.

Q7: Some foods are stuck in inventory and I can't get rid of them.
A: This is a known EA issue, not something caused by custom foods. To fix this glitch, you can simply reset your sim or have the sim travel to another lot.


Localisation: Chinese (wuccwzt), Dutch (ElenaInTheSims), French (PharaohHound, cinthila), German (plasticbox), Korean (ohmysims), Spanish (gato_24), Portugese (simshout), Italian

Known Issue:
  • One user reported that it didn't work for them when they extracted with WinRAR, but with 7zip it did. So if you can't seem to get any interactions to show up in your game, try using 7zip.
  • As explained here and here, it is known that sims are obsessed to custom food. Unfortunately there isn't a clear solution for this issue for now.

it doesn't work in my game either but only when I tried using the new cottage living fridges and stove, it works fine with older appliances

With this last update, nannies are now only making single serving batches of the custom foods. Previously they would make 4, or more likely, 8 serving batches.

Hi all,

I'm not quite sure where to post this problem, but as I suspect that it's related to having too much custom food in my game, I would like to ask if there is anyone else experiencing this:

When I click on the fridge there's quite a long delay until the menu pops up and I can't click on anything else in the meantime.
Then, when I select a meal for my sim to cook, there's some more delay and when the sim reaches the fridge the sim freezes for considerable time in which the other sims continue to move but I can't click on anything else.
This freezing happens several times during the cooking, usually every time a new cooking stage begins (for instance when the sim puts the food from the bowl into a pan).

In truth, this really spoils the whole cooking experience for me, which is a pity considering all those amazing custom dishes out there

Has anyone else experienced this and maybe even found out what it is about? As I said, I think it might simply be that I have too many custom dishes in my game, although I have 32 GB of RAM and my game runs on an SSD, etc.

Best regards,

reikacitro

Same here. And, the new fridges won't show the "custom food" option... Another thing, the coffee makers, they don't show all the opition as well. I don't know if it's this mod or the custom drinks...

Hi everyone,

I kept having a big issue with the interactions too, could open all option but the normal cooking one, seems it was a conflict with Rex_DeepFryer by konansock. I removed them and the menu pops up. Still i have the lag issue for the menu to pop up, and does like a double move, opens and then opens whole, though the rest of interactions work well.

If you have the same issue as me, remove the fryer. Though it'd be nice to have this mod checked in case something in the new ep has given it lag issues.

Is the fridge one that came with Cottage Living? The mod hasn't been updated for the new build items yet.

Update still doesn't play nice with nannies. They go on a cooking frenzy. My sim's kitchen was littered with half-finished custom food cutting boards and bowls. For every dish they completed, there would be two or three abandoned ones.

Same save, pulled only Custom Food Interactions and the associated recipes. Nanny made ONE 4-seving batch of garlic noodles, went to chat (and flirt) with my sim, then sat down to watch TV. I let that run for a couple of sim hours before I stopped the test.

for some reason, custom food and drink interactions won't show up on my sims fridge, they are both updated. I don't understand what is the issue. I have all packs and my game is up to date.
