This is an override for the Oolong tea that replaces it with simple, no-buffs, no-special effects, plain old tea. This is also a little cheaper than the buff-ridden blends.


Update 2016-02-22: Dutch translation added.
Update 2015-11-26: French and German translation added.





I never use the Oolong anyway (because Energised sims are getting on my nerves), so I just replaced that instead of making a new craftable which would have involved overriding a bit more stuff.



Localised for US English, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch and German (thanks to pinketamine and VikingStormtrooper for making the Spanish / Italian strings available, Enki for the German strings, MiniMimi for French and ElenaInTheSims for Dutch).

Partly German, wonder what this means... Did you add "Ostfriesentee" without Cream?

Though you do a great job trying to improve the game it remains TS4... *sigh* Anyway, I like to take a look at the pics of your creations

"Partly German" means that I didn't know how "Pot of Tea" was translated for the other kinds of tea ("Kanne Ostfriesentee"? "Eine Kanne Ostfriesentee"? "Ostfriesentee in Kanne"? Just "Ostfriesentee" without mentioning the Kanne?), so I left that one in English.

Okay, so "Brew Pot of..." (a cup of...) already explains that you prepare a pot (just checking your ingame screenshots for the translation but I suppose you can prepare a cup, too). It should say something like: "Eine Kanne (cup = Tasse) aufbrühen mit..." so "Ostfriesentee" is just fine.
(Eine) Kanne Ostfriesentee (in English (a) pot of East Frisia Tea, I guess) is correct German but we don't mention "Ostfriesentee in der Kanne", because in this case you focus on the pot: it was just cleaned, you got it from Granny or someone was searching for it and now, there is tea inside, you know.
Ostfriesentee isn't just tea btw, it's a type like Earl Grey but it's a German type Fine with cream, rock sugar, a chat with friends and such. So you can call it like that in German, a very German German translation

Hope I could help

I know =) -- German is my first language, but I have the game in English. So what I don't know is what the existing other stuff is called in game -- I need the "Maxis German" so to speak, because I don't want my wording to be different from that for the other teas (it would be weird if it'd say "Kanne Kamillentee" when you click on one pot but "Eine Kanne Tee" for the next pot).

Do you have the game installed in German? Then it would be very helpful if you could zip up the file

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Data\Client\Strings_GER_DE.package (or DE_DE or whatever it is called -- that's the file that contains all the localised strings)

and upload the zip to this thread: http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=539386 ("Language Resources" in Create)

Then I can look that up (and others too when they're in need of a localised reference). Thanks!

I thought you're a native AE speaker *doh!

And I wish, I could help but as I said, I only take a look at the ingame-pictures of downloads or offer help with a translation...
I do not own the game and it seems like this won't change soon, or ever. Instead I re-installed my old TS2 stuff anf that's fun to play

So hopefully someone else will help you.

Or if you've got enough space on your HDD, try and install a German version (can't take ages already, can it?) with a custom path (like C:\Program Files (x86)\Sprachauszug\Die Sims 4\Data\Client\Strings_GER_DE.package), so you can copy&paste the missing package to a save location and get rid of the German game again. Complicated but if nobody uploads the package this could solve the problem, couldn't it? As I said, I would upload, if I could, sorry.

And no, this does not mean, that it's not required to help modders with uploading text-strings

Edit:
Wow, that was fast so thank you, Enki

My update above is still compatible with the April 16th and 19th patch.

I'll be moving this mod to my tumblr soon so I can keep better track of it and it can be easier to find. If plasticbox ever returns and wants to take it back over again, I'll gladly hand it back to him.

I’ve remade this mod. It no longer overrides the Oolong tea and uses its own resources. Therefore, it shouldn’t conflict with other mods.

Download my version here.
