In Bon Voyage, Cup O’ Ramen from University has been taken over by the Ramen from the Far East food stand. The original Uni ramen texture is no longer used. Even though BV introduced a new eating animation for chopsticks, Sims still use a fork to eat Uni Cup O’ Ramen.

What this fix does:
  • Restores Uni Cup O’ Ramen texture which was overridden by BV Food Stand Ramen texture.
  • Fixes the missing shadow TXMT for the ramen bowl. No more broken thumbnail with an ugly blue shadow in action queues.
    (You have to delete Thumbnails\ObjectThumbnails.package to regenerate ramen thumbnail.)
  • Sims will eat Uni Cup O’ Ramen with chopsticks instead of a fork. (Fork version is available as well.)
Only works for newly cooked cups of ramen after you install this fix.

Choose only ONE version, depending on which EPs you have.
  • LdDarcy_RamenFix.package: Uni+BV, also FT (or later EP)
  • LdDarcy_RamenFix_BV.package: Uni+BV, but no FT (or later EP)
  • LdDarcy_RamenFix_Fork.package: Sims use a fork instead of chopsticks. Uni+BV, both for FT (or later EP) and pre-FT
  • LdDarcy_RamenFix_ShadowOnly.package: Shadow fix only for the ramen bowl. Use it ONLY if you don't have BV, or do not mind overridden ramen texture.
Compatible with AL.

Known issue:

Sims will use a spoon when they're not using the table to eat ramen, i.e. standing or sitting on the sofa. (Does not happen in Fork version.)
