Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of 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, Filet Mignon.

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 5 & 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.

These foods (I just started using them two days ago) are fantastic, but I have one question. At a restaurant my Sim ordered the Filet mignon, but the waiter just stood there until I had the Sim also order a regular item (tartlettes). All that the waiter brought were the tartlettes. I'm thinking since the Sims can only access the food at home through the "make" menu not serve that maybe they can't be served at a restaurant? The filet mignon and fried chicken showed up all right on the menu....

I hope I'm not spamming you here; I wasn't sure if it would be better to leave multiple similar feedback comments in the different specific threads or leave a comment about the different foods all in one thread. Anyway, as I mentioned over in the Fried Chicken thread, this one is also showing up twice in the "Make Food for Contest" menu. It was the first one I noticed, and it kind of freaked me out for a bit - I wondered how I'd broken it! But then I figured out it was affecting all three grill-able custom foods, so I'm guessing that's what's going on: the menu is attempting to give me the option of using the grill vs using the stove, but it's not really being helpful, as I have no idea which is which!

Everything's showing up as expected for me in all other menus, though.
