Currently working with Patch 1.63

I simply got tired of sims making bowl after bowl of baby food and then simply putting them on the counter, table, or floor because they weren't even the one feeding the toddler. In fact, I don't know that I ever saw the sim with the toddler make food from the food processor.

It finally made me do something when I noticed one of my larger households had 17 bowls scattered about the kitchen and no one did anything about them. When I directed a sim to do something with them, the only option was "Clean Up". So you can't even put this in the fridge. Since it never seems to spoil, you could leave them there and direct a sim to use it when the toddler gets hungry again. So now I knew they would not auto clean them up, they can't be put in the fridge, and I had no intention of directing a sim to look for and use a bowl left around from the last time.

At first, I would either sell or hide the food processor in the family inventory until the toddler aged up. Finally, I looked for a section of code pertaining to this action and simply disabled the autonomous availability.

Sims can still pull a bowl of food out of their butt or where ever it comes from as well as a bottle, so don't worry the toddler won't starve. You can still direct your sim to make food using the processor as well.

OMG, I had the same problem! 10 bowls on every available surface taking up space and getting the "wasted food" moodlet if I could get one to clean some up. Thank so much, this is extremely useful.

I have upgraded to the 2.4/1.9 patch and even installed High End Lofts as of 2 Feb 10. I did some testing to determine if the patch or installation affected the mods I have listed on this site. It appears all are functioning properly and should not cause any issues.

If you happen to run into any problems with them concerning the new patch, please post under the appropriate mod and explain what anomalies you encountered.

Oh my god THANK YOU!!!
It got to a point last night where I had my triplets (completely natural by the way :P) all in their high chairs eating and had 3 family members all getting jammed in the kitchen trying to make baby food!! It was a bloody nightmare and I was actually YELLING at the game lol!
Thank you thank you thank you so much!!

Is this compatible with Ambitions?

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something....

Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.

As far as I can tell this hasn't changed, so it should still work. I've not seen any issues yet.

Yeah, on that note, I was just thinking about it, would it be possible to make a version of this mod that stops them from pulling it out of their butt? I've had my sim making food for my toddler sim and have a visiting sim in the house, not even a household member, go over, pull a bowl of food out of their you know where and feed my toddler, then the food my sim was making has to go to waste and my sim gets the negative moodlet! It is downright irritating.

I would even prefer a "no autonomous feed toddler/baby" mod, especially when it comes to visiting sims. I can have my sim babies on a great schedule of "change diaper, feed, snuggle, snuggle", when all those needs have dropped to ready to fill, and a visiting sim will go into my toddlers or babies and start filling their needs, then there goes the schedule! It's really important when a playing a household that has 3 or 4 toddlers/babies to have them on a set schedule so my sims have time to do everything else they need to do.

I'd appreciate it if you would think about it. Thanks!

By the way, your mods are awesome!

Hi, I wanted to let you know after trying this with patch 1.18 in my game with Ambitions installed, it did not work. I have just installed Late Night and have to try testing it in that to see if it works.

Thanks for the mod. On mine I remember being able to put them in the fridge though (and my adult sims ate them O_O).

I actually found that out later that the food could go in the fridge and then older sims could eat it after I took this mod out of the game. I think I figured it out by accident, but that stopped my sim from having to throw away the food, so it was better.

If you're still wondering how, or anyone else is for that matter, simply open an adult sim's inventory, then drag the unwanted baby food off the counter into the inventory. Do what you will with the food thereafter. Also, if you sell it from the sim inventory for zero simoleons, rather than have your sim throw the food in the bin, your sim will avoid getting the negative moodlet for wasting food.

So I'm just wondering if you're ever going to update your mods, Werismyki?

Is it not better to be counted among the strange rather than the incurably stupid? ♥ Receptacle Refugee ♥

Patch 1.63 was released 17 Oct 13, it updates nearly 1000 xml and itun resources from GamePlayData, Most if not all Tuning Mods WILL NOT work with patch 1.63 and will require updating.

Updated for 1.63

It's cool you made this, but I'm not sure I have ever had a Sim touch the processor before. XD
