Before a Sim decides to cook or take a snack autonomously, the game checks if there's food already available on the lot. If so, it prevents them from doing it. Unfortunately, some types of food are ignored.
This mod makes following foods included in the test, as long as they aren't spoiled:
  • group meals (originally included),
  • single meals that no one has eaten (originally ignored),
  • unprepared food (originally included),
  • pizza slices in a box (originally included),
  • Chinese food on a tray (originally ignored),
  • food on buffet tables (originally ignored) – only maxis ones,
  • birthday and wedding cakes that have been served (originally ignored).
Update (12 Mar 2022): Platters (introduced in FreeTime) are now correctly recognized as food.
The ordinary version of noFaceStuffingIfFoodAvailable no longer requires Seasons, any newer expansion pack, or Mansion and Garden Stuff to work. Both versions now check food availability only in case the interaction is autonomous. Added unhidden versions.
Food availability check for other interactions
In addition to the main mod, this pack also includes two stand-alone mods. They prevent Sims from autonomously performing certain other interactions on fridges when there's food already available:
  • No face stuffing if food available: affects the hidden Stuff Face interaction. The alsoLeftovers versions additionally prevent Sims from performing that interaction when there are leftovers in the fridge, and requires Seasons. The unhidden versions make the interaction visible for players. Use only one version at a time.
  • No party snacks if food available: affects the special Have a Snack interaction for party guests. Requires at least one expansion or stuff pack.

Do not use the food already available fix mod with:Do not use the no face stuffing if food available mod with:
  • No "Stuff Face" by dizzy2 or any other mods that change autonomy of the Stuff Face interaction,
  • Stuff Face Enabled by gummilutt or any other mods that make the Stuff Face interaction visible – use one of unhidden versions of my mod instead.
