I used the strings of other custom food and google translator for the translation. So feel free to correct any mistake and add suggestions. You can simply translate the texts below and reply to me. And I'll take care of the rest.

English / Instant Ramen / Cook Ramen / Prepare Ramen

Note: [Cook xxx] is an interaction name for making a single meal, while [Serve xxx] is an interaction name for making a group meal. These are shown in the sim's queue while they are making the food. However, feel free to change the nouns (I know some countries call it Noodle, instead of Ramen.) and verbs, so they sound natural in your own language.


Known Issues:
  • Since the group meal mesh doesn't have proper geostates, the pot always look full even after sims eat up all the servings.
  • The animation when cooking on the stove doesn't look right. But we can live with that.
