This hack will replace your "Check Food Supplies" menu from fridge's pie menus with "Food Supplies: Current ??? - Capacity ???". It's auto viewing of food supplies from pie menus. Pls see screenshot.

This hack is compatible with Inge's Permafridge.

- OFB Compatible

Uploaded v2.0:
- Changed Pie Menus to "Groceries: Current - Maximum" (Groceries: 20 - 80, for example...) requested by dadditude. Dadditude there is a problem with "/" so I used "-" instead.

UPLOADED: 03/02/2007
- Seasons version

Permafridge (Always stocked fridge patch) is a hack that refills your fridge at midnight, you can get it from her site But it's not logical to use my hack if you're using permafridge cuz I make this hack for me to monitor the food inventory instantly by clicking on fridge then I could order groceries. But you can use both with no problems, you should see after midnight that current level of food is equal to capacity.

Monique, since your replacing the globals I guess this will possibly conflict with the 'breakfast at midnight' menu hack?

Well, one way to find out

Poor Monique! She posted a download and half the people in the thread are asking where they can get other people's downloads!

Thank you so much!
I have been hoping for ages for something like this so a BIG thank you!

I know there are mods out there to auto-order etc, but I prefer this method as I like to play as "realistically" as possible. The great thing is your mod saves my sims (and ME) a lot of hassle and useless animation. I'm so glad you decided to make this :nod:

Thanks :^) As said before, I love this idea. They still have to order (which is more realistic) and I don't have to have them do two things just to order food.

I have a quick question. Do I install this in my downloads folder?

So I got Bon Voyage and had to do a lot of testing in order to get a couple of things to work (several seasons things like fishing, catching fireflies, building snowmen, etc and some of the newer stuff like digging for treasure and building a sand castle) and in the process I removed everything and put it pack in sections. Somehow in that your hack seems to have disappeared. My sims ran out of food! I never check, which is why this is so great. I just checked (now that I figured out who the awesome hack was made buy, I'm very organized I just can't remember some stuff) and it's still there, it just doesn't work. I hope that you update this for Bon Voyage, because that seems to be the only way I am getting this hack back to use. Thank you much for making it.
