Has this happened to you? You're sitting there enjoying your meal, and suddenly you start choking on it for no apparent reason? There is an epidemic sweeping across Sim cities everywhere, Sims eating too fast and almost choking on their food. While there have not been any reported casualties, authorities are concerned for the general well being of Sims everywhere so have started a massive public service campaign to get Sims to slow down and chew their food better. The efforts seem to be paying off with the incidents of Sims nearly choking reportedly down by 10% or more in some locations.


The truth is, sims will look like they are choking about 1 in every 10-15 bites. It varies a little by where and how they are eating, if the food is spoiled, and some of their traits. However it is often enough the chance of seeing it in any one sitting is between 25 and 50% for one sim, and goes up the more sims eating together.

This mod remedies the situation by reducing the chance of choking/coughing by about 10% in normal situations. Sims that are normally sloppy eaters, or sims eating spoiled food will still run a high risk, but sims eating unspoiled food
should have issues a lot less often. For people who just don't want their otherwise neat sims choking, there is an alternative that removes the action completely from situations that do not involve sloppy sims or spoiled food. There is also a fix contained where sims who were eating their favorite food out of their hand (such as a burger) were not properly enjoying it.

Choose ONE of the contained packages depending on your preference and put it in your mods directory. This package is compatible with ALL mods current and future, except those which specifically modify the animation script for eating. Currently, there are no other mods which modify this script.

rarelycough.package
Reduce chance of choking/coughing while eating to 1% or less for non-sloppy sims eating unspoiled food
Let sims eating their favorite hand-held food enjoy it properly

nevercough.package
Eliminate any choking/coughing for non-sloppy sims eating unspoiled food.
Let sims eating their favorite hand-held food enjoy it properly

Attention, Please Log In, TigerM!
I was just going to complain about the mod not working with WA's nectar-drinking and I see Enigma86 beat me to it. xP But yeah, the next time you come on, TigerM, you should really update this mod to work with WA (and with Ambitions, when that comes out). I want my sims to be able to drink as much nectar as their little hearts desire, but I also want my sims to stop choking on every single meal like they're still learning how to eat! :[ Please help us out soon.

Oh how depressing this doesn't still work. I can't tell you how tired I am of my sims choking constantly! Someone somewhere must have made another ......


And I found one, right here on MTS. I haven't tried it yet, but at least we are heading in the right direction! lol

Thanks so much for this mos. Gosh, I hate having my Sims stop and begin choaking on their food every few minutes during a meal. If the entire family is at the table, they will ALL do it! It makes dinner time look like a comedy act! And, it's annoying. Your Mod id going to make meal time pleasant again!

I would like to download this (because that whole choking thing is just silly at best), but are there any other issues with it at this point of time? (I have 1.67 on Steam.)
