This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated 12 Jul 2007. I have corrected the language strings for the non-US users - there was some issue with them not saving in SimPe, but it's sorted out now. If your menus do not display correctly, then please download again. If you are not having issues there's no need to redownload**


Presented here, for your sims dining pleasure, old fashioned Fried Chicken.

There was a lot of work put into these but I don't begrudge the time it took. I had to insert the whole preparation stage, which was quite challenging. Through doing the 4 restaraunt meals I have learned exactly how foods work & because of that I am able to make other, new foods YAY!!

As you can see, 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 3 & because these new foods came out with NightLife you'll need to have it installed.


A bit of history on this: Squinge originally extracted all of the restaraunt meals & I had updated them for him last year. The problem was that those meals never had any preparation animations. Squinge has given me a lot of encouragement plus I am just plain determined. Finally I have finished making the new meshes & figuring out how to properly animate these. So, please, if you have the old versions, delete them because (with Squinge's agreement) I have used his original GUIDs - we are trying to be a bit economical with the GUIDs. If you look inside the file you will see Squinge's name in there - it is my way of ackowledging him even though I started these new foods completely new.

Other meals in this series:

Lime Seared Prawns
Nectarine Tartlette
Filet Mignon

I just recently re-installed TS2, because my poor crappy laptop can never handle TS3. Anyway, I downloaded this today along with a few other custom foods, and I have to say it's working awesome for the most part! All FT enthusiasm wants seem to be triggered and fulfilled without issue.

My one minor annoyance is that on the Cuisine hobby lot, Sue's (Secret) Kitchen, the menu options get a little wonky. This seems to be an issue with ALL custom meals that can be grilled, as it's affecting the Filet Mignon and Tropical Ribs as well: in the "Make Food for Contest" menu on the fridge, the name shows up twice (apparently once for using the grill and once for the stove, but there is no way in the menu to tell which is which). Also, specific to this one, it's showing up as just "Chicken" in the "Grill..." menu but as "Fried Chicken" in the "Serve..." and "Have..." menus. (Under "Make Food for Contest" it shows up as "Fried Chicken," but it shows up twice.) Not sure if the variation in the name is intended, but it was a bit confusing when I was looking through the menus (I tend to look mostly at the first letter when there's a lot of options and I'm looking for one specific one).

Re: TS2 Double Deluxe: That's what I have (with all other EPs except OFB), and all the meals in this series (including this one) are showing up just fine for me.
