In an attempt to make it so that sims wouldn't autonomously have a single-serving meal from their apartment neighbors' refrigerators, EA accidentally made it so that sims wouldn't autonomously have a single-serving meal from any refrigerator that wasn't in an apartment. This hack fixes it so that sims can once again autonomously make single-serving meals from non-apartment refrigerators.

Game Compatibility

Only needed if you have Apartment Life or M and G.

Hack Compatibility

Probably won't conflict with any hack doesn't doesn't fix this exact issue. Only modifies BHAV 0x2093 in group 0x7F9A5330. Should work with custom refrigerators that use the shared semiglobals.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I have had several boarding houses where sims do't actually have a refrigerator or stove and this should help with the problem of not being able to use the shared one in the communal kitchen.
