Two Soups

These are two custom foods, tomato soup and spinach cream soup.


Update 2016-02-10: Updated with Czech translations.

Update 2016-01-20: The interactions and script to make custom foods available have been moved to --> this post (same thing, different account). No need to redownload right away but please check there for updates in the future.







They are available on the base game and Cool Kitchen fridges and stoves, either in the Have/Serve Lunch and Have/Serve Dinner menus, or in a “Custom Foods” picker.

Both soups require ingredients: 2 × tomato for the tomato soup, 2 × spinach for the spinach cream soup. This is per serving ‒ for a party-size group meal, you will need 16 tomatos / spinach (the existing picker menu only lists the ingredients for one serving, but the recipes actually use the correct amount). A mod that instills the same kind of logic into the Maxian base game recipes is available here (“More Logical Cooking”; this also overrides the “Ingredients” string with “Ingredients per Serving” to make this less confusing).

Required cooking skill: 2 (Homestyle Cooking)
Flat fee: 2§ per serving

When sims dump the finished soup into the serving bowl, the animation is using a light brown effect (see the spinach cream soup “prepare-4” screenshot) -- this is part of the actual animation though, so I cannot easily change it. Is the same thing for a lot of the Maxis recipes as well (there are only four effects available, and lobster/pasta/shrimp would look even weirder for this).


Compatibility:

This does not override anything so shouldn’t be very conflict-prone.

I started a thread on custom foods here.

Yes! I got it to work in my game. I was extracting with the Winrar. I had a problem before opening a zip with a WinRAR and it not working, showing up in my mod folder and game but not working. I extracted with 7z and it works.

Oh, thanks for that tip! Maybe @Martine and @Captain THPS4 want to try that as well; I'll put a note in the first post.

Another idea: if they stop preparing the food after they are done with all the cutting, but before they start using the stove, check that the stove you have actually has the interactions. If it's a custom stove with custom tuning, or a stove from an EP/SP, the soups will not be available on it until someone gives me its ID.



thanks for answering. my sims only stop right before using the stove when they make spinach soup. when they make tomato soup, they will stop when they were boiling the soup. i try your new custom foods and download the latest custom interactions, and the same thing happen. my sims stopped before they use the stove. oh,and i use the base game stove.

That really sounds like a general issue. The two soups are nearly identical; there's no difference in the stove part that I think could break in one but not the other when there's no general problem with the game. Please look in the Game Help forum in Discussion.

Thanks!

Regarding the fridges, see the OP (and the posts further upthreads) -- I can only add objects when someone tells me their ID.
