Dining Group Mod

In an unmodded game, when a sim autonomously initiates the Be Seated interaction on a dining podium, the game checks to see if the sim is unselectable, if so the game then looks for other sims who are also waiting in queue to be seated, then the game puts up to three sims into the same dining group and makes them dine together. A sim will only group up with another sim if both sims have 5 and higher STR and 0 and higher LTR towards each other.

There are a few problems related to this feature. When the game checks all the other sims to see if they are waiting in queue, the game only checks for regular townies and downtownies. The other townie groups added by later expansion packs are excluded. In addition, the game does not allow sims to group up with currently unselectable, playable sims. This is why you will never see two currently-unplayed, but playable sims dine together in this game.

This mod makes it so that when the game checks for other sims, the game checks all townies (social group, vacation tourist/local, garden club etc.). In addition, the game also checks for currently-unselectable, playable sims. This means anybody who has 5 and higher STR and 0 and higher LTR towards each other may group up together, making restaurants much more lively places.

You need the latest version of 7zip or WinRAR to get this mod.

Tuning: The game only puts sims into groups of 2 or 3. If you want to increase this number, then open the mod in SimPE, select the resource called NPC - Form Group, left-click on the line that says "Local 0x0000 == Literal 0x0003", and change the bottom number from 3 to any number up to 8.

Requirements: Apartment Life.

Resources: NPC - Form Group/0x7FDFFE55/0x0000205D
