Hot Dogs (Microwaveable Series)

**Updated 12 Jul 2007. I have corrected the language strings for the non-US users - there was some issue with them not saving in SimPe, but it's sorted out now. If your menus do not display correctly, then please download again. If you are not having issues there's no need to redownload**

**Major Update June 13, 2007** - smaller file size, works better.


Please delete previous versions of my Microwaveable Hot Dogs. I am doing a major overhaul of all of my food mods to make them faster & better!

This food mod allows your sims to prepare either a single hot dog or a group meal of hot dogs in the microwave. All animations are present - the food disappears correctly.

If you have my "Menu - Add Have Grill" you can safely delete that as it is no longer needed. The sims will still be able to grill a single hot dog if you want them to (you need to download my hot dogs, though )

Finally my sim can eat something beside Ramen and TV dinners. He was starting to get burned out by only those choices!

Living in an apartment with no BBQ, I always make my hot dogs in the microwave (can't stand them boiled). Thanx for making my game a little more realistic! :D

Eep! My sim made a serving platter of these hotdogs and the microwave caught on fire. He extinguished it himself then took the hotdogs out of the microwave, but now the platter is unselectable. Nobody can serve or eat them, and it can't even be deleted with "moveobjects on". So now the stinking platter is sitting out by the trash and I fear flies will eventually kill my poor sim when he gets the mail! Any chance this a fixable bug? *crosses fingers*

ETA: Duh! I figured out how to delete them. Buy new surface, place the platter on it with moveobjects on, delete the surface. *poof* No more stinky hotdogs. Yay!

Other than that odd little bug, this is a great hack!! Thank you!

Hello everyone,

I've done a major update - please delete previous versions of my Microwaveable Hot Dogs & download the new version. Delete the "Menu - Add Have grill" package - it is no longer needed.
