Bartending & Bars Revamp (1.19)

by Shimrod101 Posted 3rd Feb 2015 at 1:10 AM - Updated 4th Jun 2016 at 10:15 PM by Shimrod101 : Update for 1.19 patch
112 Comments / replies (Who?) - 10 Feedback Posts, 14 Thanks Posts
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

I've actually looked at that once and I couldn't figure out how to do it. I don't know how to separate my active sim bartender from all the Townie bartenders such that my active sim can receive tips and those other bartenders are ignored.

As amusing as it was to have Sims go to the bar, pay for 10 drinks in a row and not get anything, I am very glad to have this. Thank you.

I'd like to play Sims 4 again eventually - but most of my mods still haven't been updated and we've had yet another patch. Sigh.

Oh my god, I think even Shimrod101 stopped playing TS4. I mean, It's been more than a month! I stopped playing because of the bugs introduced on the GTW patch, and the mods that the patch broke, like this one.

Tested this mod in 1.10.57.1020 game version, and bartenders didn't serve any drinks. Once I removed it they started serving again just fine.
The mod needs updating.
