Default University Espresso bar in owned lots
After stumbling across this old thread http://modthesims.info/t/332087 I found out that the only way the espresso bar works in an owned lot is making an employee use it; I've searched but didn't found anything else about it, is there a way to fix this problem to make it work with the sims in the household?

either a mod or a new version of the object might fix it.
not sure if either exist or not.

Espresso bar spawns a npc when it's in unowned community lot. Also, fun fact: the object exists within just AL as well.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever successfully fixed that. I think you may even have to hire a townie to man it? Never tried, not sure. If you want a coffee shop, you either have to hire an employee, or install a bandatron and a regular espresso-machine, enabled for community lots.

It's been a problem for a long time, but somebody fixed the OFB uniform glitch recently, so there's hope. Perhaps you'll be the one!

I don't think guests, customers and employees can use espresso machines i tried it a few times and it's just unavaliable for them even the small coffee pots i tried and nothing... so they don't use them. There is this Retro Coffee Machine http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=292985 but the only issue with it is your sims constantly keep going to drink from it when their energy levels drop even slightly so you have to turn Free Will off but again not sure if guests, employees or even customers could use it. Only way they can use the games espresso machine if you serve espresso so they can take one but then your sims end up taking one too.

Use hire family mod, then once hired they can man the expresso. To stop them going to work while playing the home lot use the Simlogical Institution sign. (fools the game into thinking they are at work)

http://www.simlogical.com/sl/Sims2P...itutionSign.htm needs a patch applied. Read it over.

There are now 2 fixes for the OFB face glitch, one uploaded here and the other by Chris Hatch-I am using CH's. Both work slightly differently.

Squinge made a mod to let visitors use the espresso machine. That's the base game espresso machine that costs §450, not the University espresso bar. Unfortunately, when I tried it myself a few years back it just made my Sims make espresso obsessively all the time, so there were empty espresso cups all over their houses, and I had to remove the mod. But that might have been because of a clash with another mod, or because of the unusual combination of EPs that I had at the time.

It would be worth trying it though.

Thank you all for your replies; so it seems like there's no real solution to the problem, just workarounds. I'll try a few of these, or I'll stick with the employee serving the espresso.

I'd really love to be able to fix this, but unfortunately I'm no modder; I will still try to find a way to do it, though.

Nobody's a modder when they start.
