Hey,

I hate this full fridge menu (in german games) because of wrong categories.
So, i fixed the following things:


Crêpes Susette is found in "Nachtisch" not as single entry in "Dessert"


"Plätzchen" and "chips" stick together in "Snack" not in single ones
(This is not a wrong thing... but i like it more)


"Omas Super Suppe" appears now correctly in the menus


Okay, thats it.
Hehe, maybe some of the german player can use it have fun

at last, my menu looks like this:




It is compatible with all EPs (as far as i know)

Yay, thank you! This misplaced 'Omas Super-Suppe' annoyed me to no end.

i tried out your fixes yesterday and they work fine.
but i just noticed another bug. i don't know whether you have 'happy holiday stuff' SP, but the 'weihnachtsplaetzchen' (christmas cookies) also have a single entry under 'nachtisch' and don't show up with the other deserts...if you have the SP could you maybe make a fix for that too?

Woher hast Du denn die ganzen leckeren Kuchen ( Zitronenkuchen, Butterkuchen, Karameltorte, Kürbiskuchen u.s.w. ) und den Meeresfrüchtesalat? Ich suche "deutsches" Essen, das meiste hier ist leider nur auf Englisch und grade die Kuchen klingen toll.

K-C, this is a good work!

But, i have a queston.

Can you write a german tutorial for "dummies", how i can change the english menu food into german's? I have many food with english names.

Can you make that for me and others and post the tutorial in the blue or yellow german forum?

Or is there perhaps already that?

Thanx alot. This annoyed my always very much.
I would also be interested in a comprehensive tutorial how to change the menu categories (I also have the Christmas mini addon and the "Weihnachtsplätzchen" are still annoying me ).

EDIT:
Is there anything similar for the dressers in a German game? The "Outdoorkleidung" and the "Alltagskleidung" are seperate from the rest of the outfit-categories (Abendkleidung, Unterwäsche etc.).

@ all:
thaks for all feedback.
im going to write a german tutorial to explain how to change menu entries.


German Tutorials are published:

Tutorial: Wie man einen Menüeintrag aus dem Spiel korrigiert (Fix)

Tutorial: Wie man ein deutsches Menü hinzufügt oder korrigiert

Ich bin bereit, meinem Schöpfer gegenüberzutreten.

Awesome, Spitze, thank you for the tutorials!
I just moved my only canapee to "belegte Brote" and now that I know I understand the process, the whole custom foods mess will get a little more organized Also some Scherzkeks at EA translated the "Weihnachtsplätchen" as "Scherzkekse" in the UC - this really drove me up the wall, but now I can fix it.
