Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I love this food! And it looks so great in-game. It even comes with a custom plate!

Note: The Crab Legs WILL NOT work if you do not download the custom plate included!!

The reason your Crab Legs will not work if you do not download the custom plate is because I linked the GUID of the plate to the Crab Legs. So the Crab legs uses the GUID of the custom plate. If you do not have the Custom Plate, then the Crab Legs wont be able to find the GUID of the plate and bad things will happen....not sure what, but I know it won't work.

Yes, the custom plate has its own GUID

This meal is fully animated and is a new meal FOR THE GRILL!!! This only appears under Make...Group Meal or Single Plate when you click on the grill.

I hope you read the info above and enjoy this delicous new food! With a beautiful custom plate.

NOTE: The Plate and Food are in the same file. MAKE SURE you exctract both into your downloads folder!

Make...Group Meal or Single Plate when you click on the grill

Does this require Open for business, then? I've never seen that when clicking on the grill.

Your creations are fantastic! Crab legs are my favourite meal and so I had to download it. But unfortunately only this of all your foods doesn't work im my game (with OFB). I followed your instructions and put the plate together with the food in the download folder. I noticed that now I have a new grill option that is only called "Hotdogs" and produces only those. I have the german game version, could this be the reason? I wanted the crab legs so desperately (:-) !!! All your other creations work fine for me. Thanks again for doing a "delicious work" and for sharing it with us.I'm looking forward to your next food option.
