09/11/10 - Updated for latest patches and games

Ever wondered why you never have a need to buy eggs or lettuce? In vanilla game every time your sims moves in a new house he'll get three units of each ingredient needed to prepare level 0 food, like hot dogs or autumn salad, and it’s all for FREE. Now that would've been all nice and sweet, like a present from a realtor thing, BUT you also get free ingredients EVERY time you switch to another family. I wish in real life links and cheese would magically appear out of thin air in my fridge every time I look another way. Sadly it never happens.

Out of pure evilness I ban my sims from the pink magic world.
NO FREE FOOD FOR YOU!!!

This doesn't remove auto-stock function, just removes free food, that you get on move in and switching families.


Conflicts

- this mod will not conflict with awesome mod, however it will be useless as awesome mod already incorporates this functionality in another way.

Have fun!

Thank you...
It particularly irks me that you can stil make meals without having to go out and buy the ingredients too! Hell, i wish i could go to the fridge to make say, lobster and it just magically appears taking the money from my bank account. I'd never have to go shopping again!
Lame! I wish it had been made so that once the cupboard was bare, it's bare till you get off your big proverbial and get to the shops!
Rant over

Thanks, that was bugging me. I like a certain amount of things to be realistic and this was one of them.

This irks me too, but I couldn't find any way to change this. But since the food fridge costs more and is of lower quality you can treat it as a price for delivery

I'm a bit unsure as to which of the files I need to download. Is it the one called "NoFreeIngredientsOnSwitch&MoveIn.rar" or the one called "NoFreeIngredientsOnSwitchMoveIn.rar"?

I wasn't sure which file to download either.

There *IS* a mod to stop sims from automatically buying food from the fridge, just search for "no shopping from fridge". Is that mod compatible with this mod?

Use the file on the bottom, without the ampersand. It is the more recent version, as evidenced by having a higher download number. (1137255 on top versus 1151823 on the bottom.)

As this is a straight tuning mod of an uncommonly modified file (Household), it should be compatible with almost all versions of the game with no need to upgrade.

Does this work with patch 1.67-1.69?
