These are custom interactions + some extras that are used to make custom foods, plus a script that adds the interactions to various stoves and fridges in game. They were originally posted by plasticbox in this upload but we moved them over to a group account to be able to maintain them better.

This group account is currently maintained by icemunmun[/URL], plasticbox, ,[URL=http://www.modthesims.info/member.php?u=231701]graycurse, necrodog and ohmysims.

Please check only with this mod before reporting script errors

Remove the Jambalaya Custom Recipe Files as that is broken



Compatible with PC: 1.90.375.1020 / Mac: 1.90.375.1220

Please always make sure to keep the interaction script and package files up to date

Release Notes:

Update 16th August, 2022 : Version 7-4

Update 7-4 HotFix -

The toddler food ( especially custom food) via high chair is really troublesome. I managed to fix it a bit for custom foods.

Click on Fridge --> Custom food Interactions --> grab Food for 'Toddler name'

The sim will take the food out and place them on the high chair and then go get the toddler to place in the high chair.

Make sure the high chair is empty and there are no empty dishes on it. Also make sure that the toddler is not sleeping and are in an accesible position.

Please note that the recipe lists by members are only the announcement of upcoming recipes. We will update this post to link to the actual recipes each time new one is released. You can also use #Custom Food tag for searching completed recipes.



Installation:

  • If you update from a pbox version, make sure you remove the old files! They are renamed now, so will not overwrite automatically.
  • Make sure script mods are allowed in the game setting.
  • Unzip the zip and put BOTH .package and .ts4script files in your /Mods folder.
  • The ts4script file can go only one layer deep with folders by default. In other words, it should be either,
    Code:
    \Sims 4\Mods\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script, or
    \Sims 4\Mods\Subfolder\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script
    

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Halfway through cooking the interaction will be canceled and the sims will wave their arms around complaining there isn't enough space.
A: Is your game version up to date?
A: Is your food recipes version up to date?

Q2: My game version is up to date, but the [Cook Custom Meal] interaction still won't show up from stoves/fridges.
A: Have you allowed script mods in the game setting?
A: Is your Custom Food Interaction also the latest version?
A: Are BOTH .package and .ts4script files installed?
A: Is your .ts4script in the right place? Please read the Installation section for detailed information.
A: Make sure you didn't accidentally install duplicated files in different folders.

Q3: All interactions show up in game, but when I click the interactions there is no food or only certain food in the selection menu.
A: This post only provides the scripts that enable custom food to show up in game. You need to get the actual food meshes and their cooking recipes from other posts. Browse the #Custom Food tag to get custom recipes.
A: Each recipe requires certain cooking level. If your sim doesn't have enough skill, some recipes won't appear!
A: Some recipes only show up at certain times of the day. Please read the Contents of the Package section for detailed information.

Q4: Mod Conflict Detector says this mod conflicts with something. Should I be worried?
A: The Conflict Detector is an useful tool, but it can't be always right. Due to the way it detects conflicts, there are chances the tool lists an okay mod as broken or conflicted or corrupted. We'd say you don't have to be much worried about the error especially when the "conflicts" are between the mods by Foodgroup or its members. Some "conflicts " are even intended and we are fully aware of them.

Q5: My sims are obsessed to custom food.
A: It is a known issue. Please read the Known Issue section below for more information.

Q6: The script isn't translated in my language. Can I still use the script?
A: Yes, you can. Localization doesn't have to do with how the script works. English menu will appear if the interaction menus haven't translated in your language yet.

Q7: Some foods are stuck in inventory and I can't get rid of them.
A: This is a known EA issue, not something caused by custom foods. To fix this glitch, you can simply reset your sim or have the sim travel to another lot.


Localisation: Chinese (wuccwzt), Dutch (ElenaInTheSims), French (PharaohHound, cinthila), German (plasticbox), Korean (ohmysims), Spanish (gato_24), Portugese (simshout), Italian

Known Issue:
  • One user reported that it didn't work for them when they extracted with WinRAR, but with 7zip it did. So if you can't seem to get any interactions to show up in your game, try using 7zip.
  • As explained here and here, it is known that sims are obsessed to custom food. Unfortunately there isn't a clear solution for this issue for now.

I don't know why, but all I'm getting is the dessert option.

Glitch with version 6-7: nannies and butlers would only make single serving custom food when in a household of 6-7 family members. They would make family or party size servings when I was running the game with previous versions. I thought I needed update because "tomato soup" under off the grid cooking would not give the option of making party size serving but I guess it's a basegame issue. Even with the newer custom food interaction it would remain the same.

When I click on the fridge there's quite a long delay until the menu pops up and I can't click on anything else in the meantime.
Then, when I select a meal for my sim to cook, there's some more delay and when the sim reaches the fridge the sim freezes for considerable time in which the other sims continue to move but I can't click on anything else.
This freezing happens several times during the cooking, usually every time a new cooking stage begins (for instance when the sim puts the food from the bowl into a pan).

In truth, this really spoils the whole cooking experience for me, which is a pity considering all those amazing custom dishes out there

Has anyone else experienced this and maybe even found out what it is about? As I said, I think it might simply be that I have too many custom dishes in my game, although I have 32 GB of RAM and my game runs on an SSD, etc.

Best regards,

reikacitro


I have this same problem. I have over 200 custom recipes in my game so I have to wait between 3 and 8 minutes after clicking on the fridge for the pie menu to open and then another for whatever food menu I want to pop up. And once I have picked my recipe to make I need to wait. On one save I need to unpause the game, leave it for about 30 seconds, then pause again for up to 10, and then the chef hat icon will show and my sim will do the action. On all my other saves I just need to wait 1-5 minutes for it to pop up without any of the pausing and unpausing. The times drastically decreased when I merged my package files. I went from about 300 files just for my food stuff to only about 15. But then the Wedding Pack free update broke my game so I can't cook anyway (all recipes are listed as prosciutto).
I know this is a late response but I hope it helped to know you are not the only one!

Hi!
So I have the last update, and the mod is working, but not exactly the right way, because when I click on custom food only these options show up: make custom grand meal, make custom gourmet food and cook together with..., and I can't cook by myself

Is anyone else having a problem downloading ANYTHING from Mod the Sims? I'm trying to update all my mods to the new patch and every time I try to download this mod or anything from this site I get a '500 Internal Server Error' message. It's very annoying because now I'm not going to be able to update all my mods and this one and the Custom Drinks one are needs to make my custom meals and harvestables work properly. I've never had this problem before and I don't know how to fix it can anyone tell me what to do?

Yes, having the exact same problem - and, obviously it must come from having too many package food files together. Even when I merge them, it doesn’t help the lag time. Not sure if there is anything that can be done about it barring reducing the custom food packages.

Unfortunately with so many packages lag is inevitable. But it can be reduced if you guys use the custom food objects to access the menus instead of the fridge. Here is the custom food objects - https://www.patreon.com/posts/custom-food-53555435

Redownload. I tried to update the file yesterday within a few minutes but due to storms by internet dipped out and there was some incomplete upload. It should work okay now. Also alternate link -

Make sure the script and package are not more than one folder deep. Also make sure that you dont have any older versions in your folders

Hi! just wanted to report that even after installing the June update there is a glitch happening with high chairs and CFI. the food menu is not popping up when you click in the high chair menu, and when a sim tries to bring custom food from the fridge or one of the CC items, a LE is caused. toddlers are still able to eat the cc food if the food is manually placed on the high chair.

I, too, am curious.

EDIT: Per Icemunmun on her Patreon page, this and Custom Drink Interactions do NOT need an update to work with the High School Years patch.
