Hi everyone!
This is my first upload onto modthesims, and I am pleased to share this mod with you here.

This is a simple mod that makes the food prices at restaurants higher.
Whereas before, the price markup ran from only 100% to 300%, I increased that margin to 150% to 2000%.
Read more below:

EA DEFAULT MARK UP PRICES
100%
125%
150%
175%
200%
250%
300%


MY MOD'S NEW MARK UP PRICES

150%
200%
250%
400%
800%
1000%
2000%



This will make eating out more realistic in the game, as well as enable you to serve very pricey food at the fancy restaurants in your game. As it should be.

This mod also works with any custom food that is Dine Out compatible!

UPDATE
This mod now increases the price of food at any unowned restaurants you may have in your game. Now the price of food at any NPC restaurants in your game is more realistic as well.
Also, this mod is now available in ALL languages supported by the SIMS 4.


Conflicts
This is a resource override mod, and it will conflict with any files that modify the restaurant.restaurant_tuning xml files. Other than that, it has been working well for me.

The resources I used:
Sims 4 Studio
S4_XML files: restaurants.restaurant_tuning

This mod is compatible with the latest patch of the Sims 4; PC Version 1.31.37.1020



Additional Credits:
Credits to @brittpinkiesims over on Tumblr for helping me out with this one.
Thanks to Krizz.88 whose "realistic restaurants " mod helped me with the update.

"Now the price of food at any NPC restaurants in your game is more realistic as well." he said as the price of a slice of fish pie is $325

But thank you for this, restaurants weren't very profitable. The mechanic doesn't work the way it is without the unrealistic prices because restaurants work by volume. A real restaurant serves more than 10 customers a day, but that would be hellish to make realistic in the sims.

Plus real restaurants get their ingredients at wholesale while we pay jacked up prices, like $13 for an apple :\

Lol, hahaha, when you put it like that (fish pie reference) it does make the mark up seem a bit excessive, but it is way too easy to make money in the Sims 4 so 325 simoleons really isn't that much in the grand scheme. A lap around the community gardens in Willow Creek to harvest produce would be enough to pay for that fish pie.
PS, I'm a girl. :P

Hi there. I tried the mod. It worked very well. So there most be some conflicts with other mods you use. Try to remove all restaurant based mods and see if that helps

Hi.
I think that my mod may be conflicting with another mod that changes the way restaurants work in-game. If there are any other mods in your mods folder that edit restaurant settings, you may want to remove them, and try again.

Hi, Ricardo. I had completely neglected having strings for this mod in other languages. I apologise. I shall work on an update for that very soon. What language do you play the Sims 4 in?
