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

Here are the Tropical or Luau Ribs from Bon Voyage converted so you can make them at home. The sims can prepare them in the oven or on the grill.

All of the animations are available. The sim properly prepares the food, cooks it & the food disappears from the plate as it should. Everything works - burned food, fresh food, Make/Make Many & Put Away Leftovers. The sim requires cooking skill level 7 & because this new food came out with Bon Voyage you'll need to have it installed.


Other meals in this series:

Pineapple Surprise
Fried Chicken
Lime Seared Prawns
Nectarine Tartlette
Filet Mignon

Hi (again!). Loving this whole series, btw; I've had it in my game before, but just put them all in again today in my new install. As I mentioned in other threads, this one also is having the minor issue of showing up twice in the "Make Food for Contest" menu at the Cuisine hobby lot (I assume, because one is for using the grill and the other for using the stove). This one also has a bit of an additional issue (if it even counts as an issue?), which is that it's showing up as "Tropical Ribs" in every menu except "Make Food for Contest" where it shows up as "Morague's Tropical Ribs" (and shows up twice). I'm guessing that's actually the same issue as with the "Chicken"/"Fried Chicken," but this one doesn't really confuse me at all, so it's no big deal.

And honestly, the showing up twice isn't really an issue either, as I can just click directly on the stove or grill to choose the pre-sorted "Make Food for Contest" option there if I care at all how my sim cooks it. Anyway, thanks so much for all the work you put into these lovely mods! My testing sim, Testy, is pretty excited with all the options and wants to try them all!
