Game Version : 1.33 up to 1.67

It may work on previous patch Levels too, but it's only been tested and proved working on 1.33 up to 1.67, so use it at your own risk.

Conflicts

It will only conflict with a mod that uses a script to replace the feed interaction for FishBowls and FishTanks.

Description

I was so shocked when I found out that my maids and butlers will not feed the fish in my beautiful aquarium, didn't they use to do that in TS2 after all?
I couldn't stand it, I had to do something about it !

Well, I did !

Unfortunately, there was no check for hungry fish, and pushing maids and butlers to feed them would create unnecessary multiple feedings, because the 'Feed' interaction would never disappear once fish were fed.

With this mod, the 'Feed' interaction will not be available if fish aren't hungry. Also, depending on the version you download, hired maids and butlers will check if fish are hungry and feed them if necessary.



Download Info

This mod has 2 downloadable versions

*** USE ONLY ONE ***
Package NameDescription
FeedFishFixer_Standalone'Feed' interaction for aquariums and bowls will be available only if fish are hungry
FeedFishFixer+MaidButlerFeedFishThis one also includes the tuning to make Maids and Butlers feed hungry fish in aquariums and bowls

Notes

If you also want Maids and Butlers to clean and feed Minor pets, then get this mod from CyberBob78

Butler & Maid will Feed Minor Pets & Clean both Minor Pets and Fish

You can use both mine and his mod together with no problem

- It goes without saying that the butler is a 'Late Night' feature, but if you don't have it installed it's not a problem. It will probably make you cry but the game and your pc will be safe.
- The FishTank (Aquarium) comes with 'SP1 - High End Loft Stuff'.
- It works with any SP or EP, as long as your Game Version is the one suggested above.

Enjoy!

Yay! I get to be the 1st comment!

I love how you never gave up and actually got to the point where you fixed the problem rather then just work around it like we usually end up doing. You are a true creator and I stand in awe of your new skills I'm still tweaking my maid and butler tuning mod. But, you can expect to see it within the next week or so.

That one stands as a tuning alternative for people who don't want to use script mods. I encourage using this one, that is why I marked the other one as obsolete and wanred in the header about a better one available, as well as offer people a choice, then it's up to them.
Besides, they're technically 2 different mods. This one is a replacement for the 'Feed Fish' interactions and while I was at it, I included a tuning to include Maid and Butler. The other one is just a tuning and leaves the original interactions alone.

If the staff will ever decide to delete it due to the site policy, then I'll be ok with it, but until then, I prefer keeping it alive

Thanks. With all the pets available, I've been going insane trying to figure out how my sims can live their lives and take care of their animals if I were to allow my animal loving side free reign. It disturbed me that the maid would no longer help with this simple function..., I mean, how hard is it to tap a food canister over a tank? Thanks for taking some of the load off of my sims' shoulders!

Does this work with the other tank animals, such as turtle? If not, could you make it so? Love your mod, btw, great job on fixing this!

Thanks so much!
Could you also maybe make a mod where Butlers/Maids can prepare drinks at the bar, please? :D

that would require assigning the maid\butler to have the role of bartender.
although I'm sure it's possible to have them do both ... it would most likely cause a lot of issues. Just hire a bartender if you really need someone to tend bar. that's my 2 bits.

It wouldn't be hard to make I guess, but it would be more appropriate and cause less troubles (like Bob pointed out) if such functionality was added to a new NPC service. I think I read about someone making a new Butler somewhere but I'm not quite sure

The Aquarium (or Fish Tank) comes with High End Loft Stuff (SP1).

If you have that stuff pack installed then you may find it under the Hobbies tab

Excellent idea! The Maids DID clean the aquarium in Sims 2, so did the Nannies - thouh sometimes they did it to excess, spalshing water all over the floor as theycleaned, recleaned, cleaned, and cleaned, yet again the aquariums, and that "Squeak, Squeak, Squeak" sound would go on and on, until, I'd get tired of it and delete the aquariums! But, I still like to see a clean aquarium so I can watch my pretty fishes with an unobstructed view (Without actually having to do the work myself, hehehe!) Thanks for making this Mod, and sharing it with us.

Looks like a great Mod. Thanks.

If someone has Supernatural, will this have Bonehilda start feeding the fish and cleaning the tank?

Thanks again.

This mod just fixes the availability of the "Feed" interaction, checking if fish are hungry, the rest is pure EA behavior. I don't know if it happens ingame cos I'm not playing it much lately but the interaction tuning suggests all occults can do it

This is a great and very useful mod. Would you be able to make another mod like this one for the beekeeping box that came with Supernatural? I can't have a butler and a beekeeping box on the same lot or the butler will continuously clean the box and not do anything else. I'd love to have my butler clean, feed and smoke my bees but not have that the only thing he/she does. If you could make a mod to fix that glitch it would be much appreciated.
