Bartending & Bars Revamp (1.19)

This mod is updated to V4 for the 1.19 patch.

Updated to V3 for the 1.16.61 patch. The mod now uses 10 XML files listed below; the other files are unnecessary for achieving the same effect since the S4 Team altered some things on the bartenders.

This mod is updated to V2 for the February 3rd patch. Remove the first mod file from the Mods folder when using the new one.

This mod fixes the issue with bartenders not serving drinks; drinks will be served normally most of the time. It may still occur on occasion that a bartender will crap out and not serve the drinks from the shaker and walk away; I've seen this when the bartender has ended their shift and is being swapped with the new bartender.

Ability of the bartender to Practice Making Drinks and Practice Bar Tricks is turned off. These were interfering with the making of real drinks and serving the customers. Your active sim tending bar can still do these from the pie menu.

The bartender sometimes does socializing routines called One Liner and Tell Story. These are given a much longer 'lock-out time' of approximately one hour, so the bartender will need to wait before doing them; they were also interfering with the making of actual drinks for the customers.

More drinks are added into the list of drinks which can be served. Instead of the one small yellow drink, 18 different drinks can be served. One issue with this change is that the bartender can serve 2 or more drinks from the shaker, so different drinks will be poured from the same shaker mix, which is strange, yes; I simply want to see different drinks and I don't see a way to force the mixing of one drink at a time.

Unzip the file and place the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.

This mod uses these XML files:
bar_PracticeDrinkMaking_E882D22F_00000000_000000000001A99C.xml
bar_PracticeTricks_E882D22F_00000000_0000000000006784.xml

As EA 'fixed' this bug themselves in today's patch, are you going to update this to work with it? It's better seeing more than one type of drink for Sims rather than everyone getting the exact same drink except for my playable sim and other sims that my sim may order for.
