I have made this restaurant mod due to the frustrations of the Sims 4 Restaurants behaviours, this will improve staff and customers .

Patch 1.93

06.08.22 Code updated.
10/04/22 Small code change.
23/03/22Code improvement and additions. Updated Version 10 out Now.
04/03/22 I had forgotten to add the string files to show up to 1000% mark up & 50_Sims_Cap.package, sorry Thanks to Yoru143 for noticing
26/02/22 New overhaul update Updated Version 9 out Now
Added a sim count package (if you used another sim count package that’s higher than the 50 you will get a flood of customers coming to your restaurant. if you don't use one diners will check in then leave!)
An overhaul of timings in the restaurant, role restrictions, making sure the customers and staff spawn. Changed diner’s settings so when they have table they go and sit and eat food at the table and not wonder around. Improved eating, cleaning, food ordering and delivery settings. Waiters dumping dishes on tables reduce, washing plates up by hand reduced and much much more.
22/10/21 Code clean up and small improvement

Great addition to this mod: Restaurant Group Diners of 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8

What does this mod do?
0, 3, 5-star restaurant at the start (and 5 stars with no changes to the settings)
Up to 1000% mark up
Staff work longer hours
Waitstaff table count increased
Reduced customer waiting time in the restaurant
50% extra customers seating in the restaurant, default was 20 now it’s 40
Double off the lot earnings (you can still lose money if you open off the lots in a quiet time)
Faster levelling up the stars, if needed
Waiters needing toilet less and peeing themselves
Host spawn fix, fixed an issue where the host would not show up
Waiter spawn fix, fixed an issue where not all the waiters showed up
Waiters cleaning increased. I have read and see this issue where waiters just stand and don't clean
Customers leaving quicker after their meal
Customers sitting at the dining table

MaxedRestaurantv10 (Required)
50_Sims_Cap (Required) Needed to increase customer count.

Thank you for this mod. I've been using the five stars only pack for a while. I understand the main mod makes the hosts and waiters show up. I'm using another mod to make sure chefs show up but I wanted to know if this mod does that too. It's not listed so I wanted to make sure that way I either keep the other mod too or remove it.

Hi, sorry I don't think I was clear in my comment. I wanted to start using the full version of this mod. But I wanted to know if this mod (with al the modifications including the changes to the staff) would conflict with another mod that fixed the bug about chefs not showing up and does it lower the idling time for chefs cooking. I don't know if it was added long ago in a previous changelog.

What other mod are you wanting to use? The full version of my mod has the chef settings which will possibly conflict with the mod you want to use.

Ok good to know. As for the mod I was using: bienchen's restaurantcheffix "Fixes the bug where the chef will not enter the restaurant and actually start cooking.". So I'll use the full version of this mod. Thank you.
