New Patch Compatibility
Patch status for this and all of my mods can be found on my Mod Status page. It receives live updates as I'm checking and it's always complete within a couple of hours of patch releases.

Patch Compatibility
For patch compatibility, please check my Mod Status page.

RequiredIngredients version is broken and will no longer be receiving updates. It's way too many resources for me to keep updating when I don't even use this version.

Mod Description
No Required Ingredients is similar to No More Ingredients Needed Mod by cyberops (later updated by catalina_45). However, instead of completely removing the ingredients options for all recipes, I only set those that required them to be optional. So, with my version you can optionally use ingredients if you have them:

Mod Versions
Choose which versions you want:

NoRequiredIngredients - Any recipes that have required ingredients are now optional. However, you can still use them if you have them.

This includes (but not limited to):
  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Herbalism Potions (Outdoor Retreat)
  • Serums (Get To Work)
  • Inventions (Get To Work)
  • Potions (Realm of Magic)

Note – Since this is now a Script mod, it should not need updated for patches. It will always include new recipes. Additionally, it should be compatible with all other mods, including SCCO!

Working on an update to include no bits and pieces for recipes. So, please be patient.

NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN - Hides recipes that doesn't have ingredients. Sims will still be able to autonomously cook them, you just can't see them when you instruct your Sim to cook. This includes Baking, Homestyle, Gourmet, Grill, and Campfire recipes. Does NOT include Experiemental and Cultural recipes. Best used with RequiredIngredients version. Do NOT install with NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN_PLUS!

NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN_PLUS - Same as NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN plus Marshmallows from the Campfire and Quick Meals from the Cooler also hidden. Do NOT install with NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN!

  • NoRequiredIngredients - No pack requirements.
  • NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN - No pack requirements.
  • NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN_PLUS - No pack requirements.

Known Issues
  • NoRequiredIngredients - Ingredients not being used for potions if you have them (this is an EA feature and working as intended).

Mod Conflicts
Not compatible with any other mod that alters recipes. If you're having issues with this mod, please confirm that this mod isn't conflicting with another mod in your Mods folder before reporting it. You can do this by testing this mod ALONE in the mods folder.

This mod will conflict with anything that edits these resources:

  • 09/09/20 - Updated NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN/PLUS to hide Batuu recipes since they don't have ingredients.
  • 09/03/20 - Updated NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN version for the 1.66 patch.
  • 07/23/20 - Updated NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN_PLUS version for the patch.
  • 06/04/20 - Updated NoIngredientRecipesHIDDEN versions for the patch. Removed Required Ingredients version.
  • 11/05/19 - Updated RequiredIngredients to allow Butlers (and other NPCs) to cook (special thanks to LittleMsSam for helping me fix this).
  • 9/13/19 - Converted NoRequiredIngredients versions to a script mod. Now includes Potions from Realm of Magic.

Additional Credits
  • LittleMsSam for helping me fix the RequiredIngredients version to no longer prevent NPCs from cooking.
  • cyberops for the original idea
  • Sims 4 Studio
