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!

Thank you so much for the crab legs. I just wanted to mention that this works GREAT in my game. I do not have OFB. This shows on every grill (even downloaded) except the cheap grillinator.

before installing the pets expansion, the crab legs worked.. but now it isn't available as an option (either when I click on the fridge or on the grill). I have checked to make sure it didn't disapear in my extensive downloads section but both it and the plate are there. Is there a compatability issue? I really loved it when I could use it

btw, I love all of your custom foods.. they are amazing.

Crab legs, awesome. I don't know why, but I find this amusing. When I first saw this, I got a mental image of crab legs attacking Sims. Don't ask me why. Heehee. Thanks, I think my Sims will enjoy this food.

Crabs are the best... especially when they're a bit... on the fried side. Well, maybe that wasn't a good description of it but.. the ones I've tried before, tasted oh so delicious. I love seafood, and I'm definitely going to make my sims eat it too. Thanks so much, the legs looks so tempting enough to eat (what can be better than to have this sprayed with some lemon too? AHH. YUM).

Thank you.
