Default Modding the pizza interaction
I'm currently defaulting the pizza delivery NPC (clothes, car, pizza box + pizza) and when I extracted the pizza texture, I came across another pizza texture named "foodpizzaslice-combo" which I've never seen before:


the texture "foodpizzaslice-pepperoni" (seen below) is the texture used by the game's pizza.


I made a post in the stupid/random questions thread asking if anyone knew when the combo texture is used, and trambling101 said this:

Which I think is what EA actually intended to do. I opened up the pizza slice object (guid: 0xAD57FB7B) in object workshop and in there, I saw this BHAV:


I would love to re-create/enable this option to choose between the two kinds of pizzas (if it would be possible to make more pizza toppings options, that would be even more amazing!). I imagine something like this:

After clicking yes to "Would you like to order a pizza? It will cost you 40 $.", another window pops up asking something like "Do you want to order pepperoni or combo?" and instead of "yes/no", you now have the option to click "pepperoni" or "combo". Or if it's possible, to get a bigger dialogue/window (like the one when you call "services" perhaps?) where you can choose between many different toppings!

I'm in no way a modder (I have poked at some BHAVs here and there), but would this be possible? I feel like most of the resources are there, they just need to be enabled or edited a bit (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Many thanks in advance for any tips/help!

My new Pizza Random Topping Mod fixes this Maxis mistake. However, it simply randomizes the pizza topping which is what Maxis attempted to do. It doesn't add any new gameplay.
