Why do I have so many different sims making so much different food at the same time? Is there a mod to stop multiple autonomous cooking?
Are you talking about NPCs grilling out in the open areas around lots? There was a mod to stop them from grilling so often, but it doesn't work any more. I tried fiddling around with it myself to get it working again, but I didn't have any success.
I have this too. I have 4 single Sims living together. One of them is in the culinary job. However, when she’s cooking a meal there’s one outside grilling hot dogs and another inside making apple salad. I like to have autonomy on, so I guess the only way of stopping this is to turn it off as, if I interrupt their cooking they simply dump the food on the floor.
