Hi Guys,

This is an update of my patch for NL which makes custom food disappear. There are two files and you only need one. They are:

foodgonepets_wo_options.zip: This file simply makes custom food disappear when eaten

and;

foodgonepets.zip: This hack not only makes custom food disappear when eaten but also makes an extra option on the pie menu called "set state". This is especially useful with OFB.

This will do one of two things. If the food is ready to be served, it will flag it so that you can simply grab a plate. Why would you want to do this? Because serving will take time and mess up tables. Sometimes - but not always - it is better to let sims grab their own meal.

The second thing it will do is the opposite. If you already have the option "grab a plate" it will change it back to serve. That way you can dish up again if you so wish or maybe you're just selfish enough not to let the sims have seconds.

Because food automatically gets served, you'll have to use the OFB's "Make" interaction. That way the sim will place the food down unserved.

Please note that the menu always says "set state". If you want to know whether the food is served or not, just click on the meal and look for the "grab a plate" (meaning it can be unreadied) or the "serve" (meaning it can be readied).

EDIT: And now it's back...V2 of the "set state" hack. I made an embarrassing mistake and it is now fixed. Feel free to download it or continue using the version without the extra options.

20062311: I am replacing the second hack with v3. v3 no longer has the problems but I still need to get people to test it for me. For those of you who would like to help me test it out, please download foodgonepetsV3.zip and report any errors.

If you don't feel like testing, that's fine. foodgonepets_wo_options.zip has no bugs so far so it's a safe bet if you don't mind on missing out on the extra menu. As an added bonus, V3 "should" no longer display the state menu when unprepared.

Compatibility: I'm going to say this one requires all expansions because I have them all though I think it is fairly safe to use the foodgonepets_wo_options.zip version without all the necessary packs.
