Kelp Recipes for Mermaids and those who love them (Updated Jun-3-2021)

Italian Translation

Updated Nov-19-2020:
Translations for French, Dutch, and Japanese, and a default English for all other languages so that you shouldn't see a blank name. Sorry about that -- I didn't appreciate how translations worked.

One of the annoying details of Island Paradise is that Mermaids have a "Discuss Kelp Recipes" interaction, but there ARE no kelp recipes in the game. So I made some.

Here are four recipes:


Seaweed Salad: Cooking level 1, requires kelp


Miso Soup: Cooking 4, requires kelp and tofu


Grilled Fish Sandwich: Grillable, requires kelp and fish


Spicy Tuna Roll: Cooking level 7, requires kelp, tuna, and ghost chili

Sims learn these recipes as usual by purchasing recipe books from the bookstore.

You MUST have CCLoader (here ) installed in order to run.

Spicy Tuna Roll also requires Supernatural, since that is the expansion containing the ghost chili.

If you have icarus_allsorts's Ingredient Moodlets From Meals (here ), then Mermaids should get full hunger bars from eating these. I will note, however, that I have reports that if you purchase the recipes without fish in them from a vendor, Mermaids will get the regular 1/4 hunger reward.

Now, when your sims talk recipes with a Mermaid, they have something to talk about.

Ha, as a matter-of-fact, I made a tutorial. I think it's in decent shape after I received some feedback on the forums: https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=648014

Thanks for this mod! I love adding new recipes to my game for more variety. However, when I buy the recipe books there's no recipe name, it's just a blank space. Also in the grocery store catalogue, it's a blank space. I don't know if it's just in my game but I thought I'd let you know

Are you playing in a language other than English? The names are only translated in English, though I'd be thrilled to have help translating into other languages.

My game language is in Dutch. I would love to help, but I have no idea how to edit the names to Dutch. Hopefully someone else can help you soon and translates it do Dutch and other languages!

I just need translations for the four names of the foods. I'm perfectly happy to add them into the package if you can send them to me.

Thank you for these recipes! I sort of hoped you could use kelp as a food before.

Well in that case, the Dutch translations are: Zeewier Salade, Miso Soep, Gegrilde Vis Sandwich, Pittige Tonijn Rol.
Thankyou very much for adding them in!

Thanks everyone! I just uploaded an update that contains the French, Dutch, and Japanese translations, plus default English for all the others so the names should no longer be blank.

I learned a valuable lesson on how translations work.

Let me know if anything is weird in other languages, since I sadly can't test them.

First, thanks so much for adding more recipes to the game, especially using the kelp. I have a question though. Can regular sims eat and make the recipes or only mermaid sims?

They're for all sims. They cook and eat like any other meal. If you have the Ingredient Moodlets From Meals mod installed, these will completely fill Mermaid hunger bars. Otherwise, they only get 1/4 satisfaction from any prepared meal.

Be sure you have CCLoader as mentioned in the description. (Not assuming you missed it, but I'm concerned that I might not be making that clear enough ).
