Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**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**

Aloha!

**Updated June 26, 2007 - there was an error in the CheeseCake that I have fixed. Please delete the old versions & install the new ones. Sorry! I have also added an alternative version. You can only use one version of the same dessert - so, only one LayerCake, but you can decide if you want the desserts to always be available or available just at lunch & dinner"

Yes - it's finally true! No more making the full pie, clicking cancel so they don't serve it, no more telling them to get the 6 plates out of the pie then manually transferring it to their Inventory. Nope! Now you just do Make Many ... Berry Pie (or whatever) & your sims will procede to make single servings of Berry Pie until you tell them to stop & they all go into their inventory automatically.

You must have OFB installed to get the Make/Make Many options which is great for bakeries! Other configurations can use the "Have Dessert" option. Choose this option & your sim will make a single serving of the dessert you directed them to make. The food gets the fresh food sparkles & the option to put away leftovers, if there are any.

I have included Baked Alaska, Gelatin, Berry Pie, Layer Cake, Crepes, Cheesecake & the Santa Cookies. You need to have the appropriate EPs installed & the appropriate cooking skill level to get all of the options.

Baked Alaska - level 8 (Base game)
Cheesecake - level 7 (OfB)
Cake - level 6 (Base game)
Berry Pie - level 5 (OfB)
Crepes - level 4 (NL)
Santa Cookies - level 1 (Holiday pack)
Gelatin - no level required (Base game)

Please delete any previous versions of my single desserts, as well as the "Menu - Add Have Dessert" mod as it is no longer required.

Cool! This'll make the bakery business a lot easier.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html

Questions:

Does it require any specific object on the lot?

Are high cooking skills still needed to get the different types of desserts?

Thanks

Hello Motoko,

It doesn't require anything specific - just the normal stuff they'd need when making a group serving of the dessert (fridge, oven). They still need the same cooking skill level they need to make the group dessert - so they need:

Baked Alaska - level 8 (Base game)
Cheesecake - level 7 (OfB)
Cake - level 6 (Base game)
Berry Pie - level 5 (OfB)
Crepes - level 4 (NL)
Santa Cookies - level 1 (Holiday pack)
Gelatin - no level required (Base game)

Hello retrotrut,

Ok - I just tested every dessert - they are all working as they are supposed to.

If you want you sim to sevre desserts you still need to choose the Serve Dessert option, if you want them to Have Dessert then you choose the Have Dessert option. Serve Dessert makes the group dessert, Have Dessert makes one, single dessert.

Are you saying that you no longer get the option to Serve Dessert? Or were you choosing Have Dessert but thinking that they would be able to serve it? The game just doesn't work that way. It's like clicking on Have Meal .... Chili. You get one bowl of Chili. You can't serve that, it's just one bowl of chili. If you want the group meal you have to choose Serve Meal.... Chili, then you get the group meal & the sims serves out individual bowls of chili from that group meal. The desserts work exactly the same way. If you want them to serve the dessert, you have to choose the Serve option, otherwise you are only going to get one single plate.

no what i meant to say that when i dowloaded the single plates of foods at the start up of the sims 2 seasons it says that each one of the single deserts overrides the semiglobals and it makes my sims move slow ,really slow on the laptop and when i removed it my sims was working normally with all the other downloads (food, insimenator, etc)

Well, these are global mods because that's the only way to enable the Have a Dessert option. I can't explain why it's slowing down your computer - these are tiny mods - just a couple of code lines that really only affect the text that gets displayed. There isn't anything in them that would cause a slowdown, especially at start up - they don't even get called until you click on the fridge.

One thing to try would be to delete the groups.cache file from your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2 folder & let the game regenerate a new one. Perhaps there's something in there that is affecting this. I have had that happen with other mods - it's certainly worth a try & will not hurt anything. The game regenerates groups.cache when it starts up if it does not find a copy. Now - the first time it generates this file it will be slower than usual, but, after that things should speed up. In any event, please let me know what happens.

well if the global mods are only for the "have a desert option" then how come when i downloaded the icecream from simaddict99 (the sims resource) and i already have the have desert option and its not a global mod, God its so confusing :S

Ok - I'll try to explain this as best as I can. The ice cream is a custom food & has it's own GUID, so it's not global, there isn't any ice cream in the game. All of the single desserts above are just tiny mods - to enable the existing in-game desserts to be able to be served singly. Someone could, I suppose, if they wanted to, clone all of the desserts & make them into single servings, all with their own GUIDs & those would not be global. But...... what would be the point in 1) wasting all of that time & believe me, it's considerable & 2) wasting computer resources? These mods I did are about 1 or 2k - typical custom foods are 400 or 500k each or more. It just does not make any sense to me to clone the 6 or 7 desserts to make them single servings when it's much better for your game to just use the ones that are already available in the game. I'd much rather see 6 new, custom desserts.

I hope that clears it up

Hi Morague, I have problem here:
1. At breakfast time, Cheesecake doesn't show up in the Have & Serve Dessert menu. At lunch & dinner time, Cheesecake does show up in the "Have Dessert" menu, but not in the "Serve Dessert" menu. But when sim want to have cheesecake, he serve the cheesecake instead.
2. Can you modify this mod so that only Santa Cookies can be haved & served at all times, and the other 6 can only be haved & served at lunch and dinner time, (like the original time)?

Thank you.

Thanks for letting me know - there was an error in the cheesecake & I have fixed it. I can't believe I missed it. LOL - not wanting twins right now, I guess.

I've made an alternative set - that are not available at Breakfast. I included the Santa Cookies in that as well, because otherwise you still get the extra menus. You can mix & match these as you please - just download both but extract to different folders, then pick which ones you want available all the time & which ones only for lunch & dinner.

Personally I like the CheeseCake to be available all the time in case I decided to go for twins. Because that brings up the Have & Serve Dessert menus, I just include all the other desserts. I figure, might as well since the menus is there anyway Anyway, you should be able to customize these however you want between the 2 sets. Just remember, you can only have one copy of the mod installed at any time, so store the rest somewhere else or delete them.

OMG I can't thank you ENOUGH for this! It is exactly what I have been looking for! <3

Going to try right now and verify that this works with Freetime, though I suspect it does because someone above me posted after the date Freetime came out to thank you. I'll just double check and post. ;D
