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

Hey shimrod, glad you're back!

Can you make a mod with all the bar drinks available at the bar. I know your bartender revamp mod does that, but since EA fixed the bartender issues I guess that part is obsolete.

Thanks!

I just went to a couple of bars right now and my sim didn't order any drinks, but the other auto-sims got these drinks: Wrench, Salty Llama, Sweet & Spicy, Tang & Zing, Sea of Fire, Juice on the Rocks, Dim & Gusty, and Sea Splash.

I'm playing with patch 1.15. Might that have something to do with it?

There isn't any change to any of the files in this mod from the 1.15 to the 1.16 patch, so it should work fine with the 1.15 also. To me, it sounds as if the bartender hasn't learned any of the other drinks because they have way too low mixology skill, but this is unlikely unless you have in some magical fashion assigned specific sims to be bartenders all the time, and these sims haven't learned the other drinks because you haven't played them actively.
Otherwise, the standard cause is possible: conflict with some other mod.

After fixing my game, everything is working fine. Thanks again Shimrod!

Oh, is it possible to make a mod that would allow more autonomy for pub games and the card table?
The npcs only play the games when they are instructed to do so in clubs.
They only play the cards game when I direct them.

Thanks!

Uhm, man I dunno what the problem is. I have version 1.19.28.1010 and nada. The drinks in fact are all sweet and spicy now, and the bartenders only serve one at a time. Could you help me please? Man, it's so frustrating that after all this content bars in the game remain pathetic and antiquated in their base functioning. I was really hopeful for this mod.
