Autonomous Put Away Leftovers

Fixed broken menus - see section below
This mod makes the Put Away Leftovers interaction on plates and bowls autonomous.

Expansion Pack Requirements
Leftovers were introduced in Seasons EP. This is why this mod is marked as requiring Seasons. However, the leftovers function was rolled into later EPs after Seasons, so the real EP requirement is Seasons or later. You will know yourself whether you have leftovers capabilities. If you do, you can use this mod, if you don't, you can't.

Doesn't this mod already exist?
AncientHighway has a version of this mod here. This was reported to clash with my Simply Leftovers mod so after checking with AncientHighway, who says (s)he is not actively modding anymore and so couldn't make any change to it anyway, I am providing this alternative version which is much smaller, a global change instead of a default replacement and thus will be less likely to clash with other mods, and is much smaller in your downloads folder too!

Another alternate version of this mod by BoilingOil can be found here. It also does not clash with my Simply Leftovers mod.

The idea of separating them into separate packages comes from AncientHighway who said that with big households you may prefer to only have the serving versions as autonomous or the children put away the bowls before you can get them all served.

Will this affect what maids do with unfinished food? If so, will they put it away, or simply ignore it?

Thank you for sharing this. I have another version but I want to use your simply leftovers. I'm wondering though if this one will have my uni-students constantly trying to put away the food the cafeteria worker made? I had one that did. It was funny the first couple of times, then not so much. :p

Currently this does not affect what maids do. They will ignore uneaten food and clear up partially eaten food. What is the general consensus on what maids should do? I could look into changing this if people want the maids to do something different.

I am afraid my mod currently behaves the same way. The uni-students do indeed constantly put away the food made by the cafeteria worker, and yes, it is annoying isn't it? I will definitely look into fixing this.

Mostly I fix Gameplay annoyances. I take requests and have made a few Requested mods already. Visit me on MTS Yearbook

Dizzy's leftover hack and auto store food hack also work perfectly with simply leftovers, if anyone was wondering.

Is it solved yet?

BTW: If I only use the:
servingbowl-autonomous-put-away-leftovers-Mog-20100829.package
and
servingplatter-autonomous-put-away-leftovers-Mog-20100829.package
Will it work correctly with the universities? I mean, will this be enugh for the sims to save the leftovers from serving plates automously and not save the single portion plates as leftovers? (prevent the problem discussed here about leftovers)

Yeah, I also think you should make eating leftovers autonomous. I just realized that it wasn't when I was playing an asylum game and I ran out of food supplies, but still had like 15 plates of leftovers in the fridge and everyone was screaming about how hungry they were instead of just eating the leftovers lol. I had to take all the plates out for them and put them on the counter.

I might have done something wrong somewhere in the process, but the leftovers disappear when my Sims go to retrieve them.
