Muffin for Breakfast (Microwaveable Series)

**Updated** June 17, 2007 to fix the non-US English language ooptions. You only need to redownload if you are using a non-US game.

Here is a nutritious muffin (normal sized!) for your sim's breakfast. This is part of my Microwaveable Series foods. My goal is to make the microwave a useful kitchen appliance in the sim's kitchen. It just always bothered me that they could only make TV dinners & Ramen in it! Speaking of ramen - you need University in order to get this to work because it was cloned from the ramen.

The sim gets the muffin from the fridge, warms it up in the microwave & then eats it. It is all properly animated, the food disappears when they are finished.

Making the microwave useful is such a good idea! Thanks.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

I understand you also made a pizza mod. Can these two mods work together?

Yes - they have separate GUIDs so there wouldn't be any conflicts

Sheepy-Pie - Unfortunately there aren't any proper animations to get the sims to eat something like a muffin with their hands. I tried it & it just looks awful. The pizza works because it is fairly flat, but the muffin is not.

Can you fix the pie menus for English UK? It says Cup O'Ramen in the pie menu.

Oddly, I can't seem to make this work in my game. I tried clicking on the microwave during the morning hours, and nothing. Does a Sim need a certain cooking skill to make this? I'm not sure why I can't get this to show up.

Giggles - they need cooking level 1.

I probably should have just made it no cooking skill :/

If that is not the problem, let me know & I'll see what else it might be.

I tried it with two different Sims, both with very high cooking skills, but still haven't been able to make this work. Has anyone else with Seasons tried this and had it work? I've been able to get the pizza and the hot dog to work in my game so far.

This is very strange. Did you download the newest version? I updated it to include non-US English. That's the only think I can think of that would be different, although it's still working fine for me. I'll take another look at it later today - I'd really like to get this working for you.

Try deleteing groups.cache from your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2 folder - it's possible there something in there that is interfering with this. Groups.cache gets regenerated by the game at start-up if it does not exist. The first time you start after you delete it will be a little slower than normal because it has to regenerate it, but after that the game runs as normal.


Ok - I've tested this again & it's working fine for me. Let me know if deleteing groups.cache does not work.

I've tried redownloading, deleting the groups.cache, and removing all my other hacks, foods, and even objects in case there was something conflicting, but still am not getting any kind of an option when I click on the microwave. It's definitely normal breakfast hours (I clicked the fridge) and the Sims I've tried all have pretty high cooking skills.

I'm sorry to inconvenience you like this. I guess if no one else is getting this it must be something on my end, but I don't have any other problems... I'm only running the base game, with NL and Seasons, and one stuff pack (FFS) if that matters at all.

Ok - I think I have figured it out. This need University because i cloned it from the ramen :/ I am so sorry - I had done several versions of this thing - trying to get it to work & I honestly forgot that in the end I used the ramen.

I hope you will fogive me for making you do all that stuff! I really am sorry.

Don't worry about it! Thank you for clarifying it for me-- I'm glad to know there wasn't something wrong with my game. Thanks for going to all the trouble to help.
