Prefer to eat at tables

My sims regularly walked across the house to get to a bed, passing by several perfectly good tables and chairs! I aimed to fix that. Sims will now preferentially sit in a dining chair to eat. If that's not available, they'll choose to sit in a barstool, then in living room seating, and finally in beds and at desks.

This is just a simple tuning mod, so it should be compatible with everything. It does not interfere with multitasking, and sims will still sit on couches to watch TV if you tell them to while eating. I doubt that this will need updating for future game versions.

Built with game version 1.50.67.1020 (Strangerville), but should be compatible with any version.

This mod makes changes to the following interaction tuning files:

Thanks to solve this annoying "BUG." There're still couple of annoying interferences from pets and other NPCs. Hope they could be tuned, too.

Gawd, it's so pathetic that we need a mod like this! Thank you, this is so much needed. No more sims avoiding the dining table like plague and bee lining to eat on the upper beds of the bunk beds!

Thank. God.
I was losing my mind from sims walking from one end of the house to the other just to sit on a bed, then walk all the way back to put the plate in the dishwasher. Sims already take ages to eat. It took them 2 hours every morning to finish their breakfasts. And then they were usually late from work and school... I was seriously going crazy from it.

Thank you. This mod literally saves lives. My sims would cook a meal, then everyone will grab a serving, walk past the counter & stools, past the kitchen table, into the hall, pass by the dining room, all the way across the house, out the back door, off the patio, around the pool and sit at the bar. The problem is (aside from that being stupid), it's the middle of winter, and they wouldn't change into outdoor clothing (I guess because they were focused on eating). They would eat they're meal, nice and slow as always, and every meal a family member would freeze to death.

Is it possible to make sims sit down when watching TV so my sims at the bar aren't all standing around?

I was hoping that this would keep my Sims from eating in front of the fridge, blocking it. Sadly, it did not. Oh well. Nice mod.
