Testers Wanted - Food - Hamburger Helper Three Cheese *Updated 5/11/05*

Edit - *Update*


Ok I have fixed the problem with the food not showing up (flashing blue) in the pot while being cooked. The new file should be working great. Although if you do happen to find something wrong please let me know so I can get it fixed. Be sure to download the new attached rar. file that I have included.

Also, I have updated the old Hamburger Helper box to a newer, better looking box and fixed the problem with the front wrapping around on the sides. The box is now more physically correct. I added Nutrition Fact diagrams on the sides so that the box would look more realistic and also updated the old milkjug to something of my own creation. This package is alot better than the original package that I made. Let me know what you think of them. If you would rather have the old box I still have it but the newer one is much better.

I am working on a Tuna Helper and Chicken Helper right now. If you all like these please let me know and I will make more. If you all are like me you may have about 4-5 layers on your food pie menu in the game or maybe even more (lol). Hope you enjoy and I will have the others up as soon as possible. Thanks to all of you that have been patient, I really had a time learning how to hack this food item. :banghead:

Thank you fireflies for all of your help on this food option...it never would have been possible without your guidance. :thumb:

Lastly but certainly not least here is a link for all of those out there that don't have rar. installed visit this link to help you understand what you need to do to get it: http://forums.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=61942




--------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my first creation after learning how to create cereal with some help from fireflies...THANK YOU FIREFLIES!!! I know there is a problem with cooking state on this food; it occurs going from the stove to the plate. I have done my research on other food items and everything i have done was correct but i am missing a file in my "textured images" dunno how that happened. I have only 8 files in my "Text Images" and the others that i checked had 9 files. I may need to update SimPE or maybe reinstall my sims games. I am currently using SimPE .33 and I know there is a .35 out now but everytime I download it, it doesn't install correctly (it may be me ~lol~). If someone could please help me out with this i would be so greatful. I will post the update as soon as i figure out what has happeneds and expect more food of this type :thumb: . Hope everyone enjoys this addition to your game and I will get this problem fixed ASAP. :howdy:


This food item was modeled using the original "Mac and Cheese" and does not replace it, instead it gives you a new food item option. You do not need any skill levels to start cooking this food; the cooking level for this food is 0.

I have included links to my other Helper creations just below. I hope you all enjoy them.

It's a fairly popular product here in the US. It's a packaged dinner you buy in a box that contains pasta noodles (usually though there's a couple have potatoes instead) and a packet of some flavor of seasoning/sauce mix. You just have to add some browned hamburger, milk, water, and boil it all together. They also make tuna versions.

:argh: WHAT?!? Hamburger Helper isn't "REAL" food?!? :argh: LOL...I love Hamburger Helper even the Chicken Helper and my Wife loves the Tuna Helper (which I'm not too crazy about). I am currently working on both of them so yes you can expect more witchboy but I have to fix some of the problems first then I will post 'em right up. Glad you enjoyed it and check back soon for the newest update for the 3 chez. :bump:

jcfranklin27292 -

The extra file you are refering to is one i had to pull from the objects file
in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Sims3D\objects
you will find the references in either objects02, 06, 07 or 08 to finalize your package
this may be a little difficult to understand till i share another tutorial that concerns this procedure.

i will be writing more tutorials but right now i am working on
trying to model/mesh new items and make them work in the game

example - trying to model the toaster pastries i created rice krispy bars
but instead of disapearing when eaten or just sitting on the plate
they were floating about eye level after eaten..
nothing i do seems to change this? well overall at least i am learning.

-------------------------------------------------------

BABYLOVE -see the words Testers Wanted? this means it is a test file.

Gilbert - dont demand' you are lucky this person has attempted this or is even had the guts to share it took me a while knowing the foods were gonna have problems.

Thank you for making something for lunch/dinnertime!
