This is a tuning mod that disables the cooking option / the autonomous cooking in both of the cauldrons that come with Realm of Magic.

It comes in two versions. You can only have one in your game.

If you want to see your sims using the nice kitchen you thoughtfully provided instead of cooking 600 liters of maccaroni and cheese, and don't want sims to dump out a potion so they can use the cauldron for mac and cheese: download the no autonomous cooking version.

If you don't even want to see the option to cook when clicking on a cauldron, absolutely no cooking allowed: download the no cooking version.

Updated for game version 1.77 - Please redownload

This changes:
tuning ID 213440 "object_Cauldron"
tuning ID 218784 "object_Cauldron_High"

This mod is not compatible with any mod that changes those tuning IDs.
It will also work for any CC cauldrons that don't include a new tuning ID.

I really do like the concept of this mod. The only issue is, while I was using it, it disabled ALL interactions with the cauldron. Not certain if a patch caused issues or what. I just want them to stop making Mac and Cheese in it! Not stop using it entirely. Are there any known issues I should keep an eye out for? this is the only cauldron related mod I have.

Hello, sorry for replying late. I've updated the files, please redownload.
Unfortunately I can't guarantee that the new version is working for everybody, because for me, the old version was still working after the latest patch, and so I couldn't identify the cause of the issue. Hopefully with adapting the files to the most recent game data, it will work again for everyone. Please let me know if there are still problems

English is my second language. Please don't be mean about my mistakes :)

Thank you! I have been creating a special room just for the cauldron and using door locking to only allow people in who have to use it at the time.
This will make life so much easier.
