Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This mod has not been updated for 1.67/1.69. You can find an updated version here: http://modthesims.info/d/599349/qui...g-override.html

Update:
This mod is fine with the latest patches (1.31-1.34).
26.05.12: As of some requests I added a file that just slows down the eating process and leaves the cooking speed untouched.
25.01.12: Because of a request I additionally uploaded a file that only increases the cooking speed but leaves the eating process untouched.

---
Since the game is out I don't like how long it takes Sims to cook and how fast they are when they eat. Eating is a social process so they should take more time to eat.

There is one mod from userunknown (http://www.modthesims.info/d/349675) which alters this but it hasn't been updated since World Adventures.

So I made my own mod and since I think some more people could be interested I provide it here.

Faster cooking:
To make faster cooking work I modified all in the game available meals, the stir and chop process and all stoves and the microwave.



Note:
I haven't modified the grills since sims endlessly prepare food at community lots where it piles up fast. (I haven't found a solution to stop this, so I excluded the grills)

Eating tweaks:
Eating is twice as low as before. The chance of choosing the favourite food is 60% instead of 33% and the chance of cleanup after eating is 70% instead of 50%.
Sims will sit 40 minutes after eating when someone is around instead of 20 minutes.




Technical stuff:
Conflicts:
The mod will conflict with any other faster/slower cooking mod.
Specifically with mods that alter these files and the meals:

StoveModern_0x44df9291bb077c32

BowlLarge_0x54b12379c89e1a01
EatHeldFood_0x12a11069b3da4c03

Game version:
My patch level is 1.29.55.014002 - so I guess you have to update to the latest patch level to use the mod. I have no expansion packs installed so you don't need any. It works with some, all or with just the base game.

You can check with Delphys Dashboard if it conflicts with other mods you installed: http://www.modthesims.info/d/387006
