Another custom food: home-made chocolate pudding!


2016-03-05: Updated with Polish translation.







You need to download foods-custom-interactions from this thread (if you don't already have a pudding-enabled version from the Two Soups thread) in order for it to be available in your game -- otherwise your sims will have pudding but no way to actually prepare it, which would be kind of cruel. The interactions also include the “Make/Serve Dessert” options on the screenshots.

The pudding does not require any cooking skill or ingredients, it’s really simple. Tagged as Dessert so it should fulfill the “Prepare a Dessert” whim that sims can apparently have (I’ve never seen it in my own game though, I only saw in the XML that it exists at all). Available anytime in the “Cook Custom Meal” menu, and between 11AM and 2AM in the “Make/Serve Dessert” menus; 6§ per serving.

For technical questions on custom foods see this thread in Create.

What did you put in the chocolate pudding?! My sims are obsessed with it! Autonomously they won't make ANYTHING else anymore...anyone know the number for chocoholics anonymous? LOL!

I checked and it has the same autonomy weight as any other random food. Maybe what you are seeing is the consequence of it being a dessert, i.e. they can make it most of the day? (as opposed to lunch which is only available for a few hours)

There's also not a lot of foods that count as dessert by default, and many of them require relatively high cooking skill. I haven't looked into when/how exactly sims get that "Make Dessert" goal, but when they have that, and don't see much else to choose from, they have little other choice than to make pudding.

@Wee Albet I found another thing that might have caused too many puddings: the pudding (and the cupcakes as well) were also in the autonomuous meals, not only in Desserts. I removed those now from the meal interaction in the last Interactions update.

Thanks for the French! =)

@Wee Albet again -- I have the pudding phenomenon now too >.< Weird, and I agree it's a bit annoying.

It only seems to be a phenomenon in the one household I played yesterday (so far); most of the sims in that household have acquired their cooking skill via setskill and whenever they cook autonomuously, it's one of three meals: Mac and Cheese, Garlic Noodles, and Chocolate Pudding. Those all require level 1 cooking skill .. I suspect that that's got something to do with it; I think I have seen that the game keeps track somewhere of what exact foods sims are cooking, and it would actually be smart of them to stick to the simpler things where they won't burn down the house.

I'll set the required skill to 2 and see what happens! =)


E: actually, you can test as well -- package below!

@plasticbox Tried (the previous version) with high skill level households as well, still got chocolate pudding obsession. Will test with this package in a sec, will let you know...

...Thanks for fixing this! Ok, this one works better for me, they still seem to prefer your pudding but at least they're making other things too now. My sims are level 6 and above in cooking skill.

Thanks for the translation!

More news regarding the pudding obsession issue: In that one household where I've observed it, I noticed at some point that apparently the fridge inventory was messed up -- those sims have spinach plants that they harvest, but when I directed them to make spinach soup they dropped the interaction; same with other foods that require vegetables (they showed up in the menus but sims couldn't actually make them). So I looked in the fridge, I don't remember whether I could initially see any spinach at all, but when I started to move stuff out of the fridge into a sim inventory, they suddenly had like 76 spinachs. So I emptied it all, put some stuff back, and voilá .. they were able to make all sorts of foods again.

Long story short: Overuse of pudding and other no-ingredient foods may be a sign that the fridge has forgotten that it has ingredients inside. When you use a mod (like I do) that makes recipes require ingredients, having no ingredients means they cannot make anything else.
