Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I'm back with another food stand, this one is more based on any Latin American food I could find and would be the first one in which I attempt to add temperature changes to food. If there is a better way to go about uploading cc food where the only thing I did was add a modification as opposed to doing any design, let me know and I'll correct it (or take it down from the menu if needed). Utimate Collection is required

Read all instructions toward the bottom or you will get jump bugs!

The food stand and the foods (all of which must be downloaded - their serving platters as well) must be in the same directory (e.g. if you have a separate folder of AriesFlare's food and have the food stand at a different folder, the food (that is not in the folder of the food stand) will not work - the chef will try to cook it 2-3 times before an error occurs).

Be sure you want to use the food stand and its food beforehand as I have heard that you should not delete food after it has been used and eaten in your game.

First to show, is the menu:

Only two meals here affect sim temperature:
  • Spicy Stuffed Bellpeppers
  • Chocolate Ice Cream

In case it comes up, the blue checkered plate is not required. It is just a default plate that I have downloaded (probably from this site).

It uses food from the following:
*Found towards the bottom
  • Beef Filets with Potatoes and Rice => xnmfood-filetx001.rar
  • Fried Fish => xnmfood-fishx001.rar
  • Shrimp and Chips => xnmfood-shrimp.rar
  • T-Bone Steak => xnmfood-steakx001.rar
  • Vanilla and Chocolate Marbled Cheesecake

To make the above easier to find, I suggest highlighting the .rar file name, copy it (Ctrl + C), going to the site, enter Ctrl + F, paste the name in the box (Ctrl + V), and it will find and highlight the file for you.

The food stand can be found in "Appliance" => "Stove" => end of category for around $4500.
The polygon count for this is: 2920.

It follows the same setup as bienchen83's community lot revolution in which you:
  • Activate moveobjects on cheat
  • Place food stand
  • Replace chairs
  • After that, use any island counter you want

Make sure to put the food stand and the related food in the same folder, in the same directory or it will not work and cause jump bugs
You folder should look like this when done:

Sims start to freeze by 3 servings of ice cream since in order to chill them it decreases their temperature by ~ 5 degrees with each bite.

Eating spicy food once gets them a bit hot, twice fills up the temperature meter to the top. However, if you order the chocolate ice cream immediately after noticing, not much seems to happen other than skintone change (which will cause some lag in the game [should be the same amount of lag as a sun-burnt sim]). They'll cool down in a few bites. I had my sim try again without cooling down with ice cream and he eventually started to gradually cool down. No spontaneous combustion to report.

Be sure to not have them order ice cream 3 different times, or they'll freeze. Ordering once should cool them down enough.

Yes, I didn't create the CC food but just linked them so that the food stand serve them (I got permission, don't worry). There are instructions on how to find the food in the post, make sure to give a Thanks to the creators of the foods!
