These are custom interactions + some extras that are used to make custom foods, plus a script that adds the interactions to various stoves and fridges in game. They were originally posted by plasticbox in this upload but we moved them over to a group account to be able to maintain them better.

This group account is currently maintained by plasticbox, icemunmun, graycurse, necrodog and ohmysims.

Please check only with this mod before reporting script errors


Compatible with PC 1.37.35.1010 / Mac 1.37.35.1210 (12th December, 2017.)

Quote:
Please note that the recipe lists by members are only the announcement of upcoming recipes. We will update this post to link to the actual recipes each time new one is released. You can also use #Custom Food tag for searching completed recipes.



Installation:

  • If you update from a pbox version, make sure you remove the old files! They are renamed now, so will not overwrite automatically.
  • Make sure script mods are allowed in the game setting.
  • Unzip the zip and put BOTH .package and .ts4script files in your /Mods folder.
  • The ts4script file can go only one layer deep with folders by default. In other words, it should be either,
    Code:
    \Sims 4\Mods\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script, or
    \Sims 4\Mods\Subfolder\mtsfoodgroup_foods-custom-interactions.ts4script
    

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Halfway through cooking the interaction will be canceled and the sims will wave their arms around complaining there isn't enough space.
A: Is your game version up to date?
A: Is your food recipes version up to date?

Q2: My game version is up to date, but the [Cook Custom Meal] interaction still won't show up from stoves/fridges.
A: Have you allowed script mods in the game setting?
A: Is your Custom Food Interaction also the latest version?
A: Are BOTH .package and .ts4script files installed?
A: Is your .ts4script in the right place? Please read the Installation section for detailed information.
A: Make sure you didn't accidentally install duplicated files in different folders.

Q3: All interactions show up in game, but when I click the interactions there is no food or only certain food in the selection menu.
A: This post only provides the scripts that enable custom food to show up in game. You need to get the actual food meshes and their cooking recipes from other posts. Browse the #Custom Food tag to get custom recipes.
A: Each recipe requires certain cooking level. If your sim doesn't have enough skill, some recipes won't appear!
A: Some recipes only show up at certain times of the day. Please read the Contents of the Package section for detailed information.

Q4: Mod Conflict Detector says this mod conflicts with something. Should I be worried?
A: The Conflict Detector is an useful tool, but it can't be always right. Due to the way it detects conflicts, there are chances the tool lists an okay mod as broken or conflicted or corrupted. We'd say you don't have to be much worried about the error especially when the "conflicts" are between the mods by Foodgroup or its members. Some "conflicts " are even intended and we are fully aware of them.

Q5: My sims are obsessed to custom food.
A: It is a known issue. Please read the Known Issue section below for more information.

Q6: The script isn't translated in my language. Can I still use the script?
A: Yes, you can. Localization doesn't have to do with how the script works. English menu will appear if the interaction menus haven't translated in your language yet.

Q7: Some foods are stuck in inventory and I can't get rid of them.
A: This is a known EA issue, not something caused by custom foods. To fix this glitch, you can simply reset your sim or have the sim travel to another lot.

  • A lot of new strings have been added, so all of the language need to be translated now.
  • See this thread on how to translate mods if you want to contribute another language.
  • Please DO NOT send us an STBL file extracted by s4pe any more. We have found a couple of issues with directly importing string files, so would rather manually do it. You can simply translate the texts below and leave a comment or attach a text file.



How to Use



As a downloader, if the creator of a custom food links you to this post, that means you need both these interactions and the actual food in your game. This upload by itself contains no edible parts!

As a creator, if you make a custom food there are a few different ways to make it available in game – some of which require this mod and some don't:

  • Using Maxis pie menu categories – Create a custom StartCraftingSuperInteraction that lists your recipe/s, and make it use one of the existing pie menu categories (Make Lunch, Serve Breakfast etc – there's always one per crafting object (stove, fridge ..) and number of servings). You can have as many such interactions as you want; as long as they are using the same category, they will all be available in the same pie menu in game. You do not need these interactions at all for that to work.
  • Using custom pie menu categories – To use a different pie menu ( + category), like "Serve Dessert", you can make your interaction use one of the custom categories listed below, put it in your own upload, and tell people to download this mod in addition to your food.
  • Using custom picker menus – Here's where it gets hairy: picker menus (the long lists like this one ) do not currently have categories, so while you can make your own picker menu interaction(s), they will all show up individually in the pie menu. People who like to download custom stuff often like to download a lot of it, and might end up with ten different "Make Custom Meal .. " picker lists on their fridges if everyone makes their own. That's why we moved these interactions to a group account, so we can all add our foods to the same list. If you want your food to be included please consider joining the group so that you can update yourself – since that can take a little while, you can also post in the comments with the IDs of your recipes and interactions and we can add them with the next update.

See also this thread on custom foods.



Contents of the package





Miscellaneous

Compatibility:
  • This does not override anything so shouldn’t be very conflict-prone. Whether or not the recipes are available on custom stoves/fridges depends on what object tuning those are using ‒ if you find one where it doesn’t work, post a link and we can add its ID to the script.

Known Issue:
  • One user reported that it didn't work for them when they extracted with WinRAR, but with 7zip it did. So if you can't seem to get any interactions to show up in your game, try using 7zip.
  • As explained here and here, it is known that sims are obsessed to custom food. Unfortunately there isn't a clear solution for this issue for now.

Did you test that without other CC? (Rhetorical question.)

Once you know which mod seems to be causing your issue, please go post in *that thread*. This thread is not a help forum for possible issues with everything on the site.

What is the "etc" that you downloaded? Please see the Help forum in Discussion for how to figure out *which* mod is causing an issue. Once you know that, please post in the download comments of *that* mod.

Please only use this thread for feedback/issues with this particular mod (Custom Food Interactions), not for issues with random other stuff.

I downloaded this, and it's in my file and I put it in my game, but when I go to the fridge the "Cook custom meal" interaction doesn't appear. I don't know if I'm supposed to do something else, but I'm not sure what's wrong (maybe my game's messed up?)

Did you download some actual foods as well? If you don't there will be nothing to show. Also, did you unzip it?

How exactly did you unzip? See upload description, "Known Issue" -- might be that you are having the same issue.

@icemunmun if you add your food uploads to the "Related Posts" list as you update, people will be able to use that list for "everything that is being made available by this mod" =). I added the fruit salad a while ago but not the newer ones since I haven't updated since then. That list is in Edit > Download Summary and Options.

Hi there!

I had some spare time and decided to update some of my Dutch translations of some food mods to fix some minor mistakes etc. For example, I realized it's better to use "bereiden" instead of "klaarmaken" cause it fits a lot better with the game's original phrasing.

So, @plasticbox and @icemunmun I've updated several of my Dutch translations of your custom food mods! I've also changed the strings of this custom interactions mod cause it had the same problem I've just mentioned.
I didn't want to leave a comment to every single one of your mods cause that would unnecessarily clutter up your comments section, so I've decided to just compile all my updated files in one zip cause I hope it's easier for you guys this way. Seriously, I love all these custom foods so much!

Well, here you go! Please let me know if something seems off!
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

Hi there! I am also encountering issues with this mod. At start-up, the script mod is failing to appear in the Mods pop up box. However, your package files are displaying. To be sure, I removed ALL of my custom content, unzipped the file with 7zip to my Mods folder with your custom food options, and ensured script mods were enabled. I've used a ton of your mods in game without any issue (they're awesome, btw), but I have yet to get this one to work for me.

UPDATE: I got it to work in game!!

The issue appears to be with my subfolders. My resource config file is setup for over 8 subfolders, but for some reason your mod is only recognized in my game when it's in the first subfolder. I tested it in the main Mods folder and got it to show up. I thought this might work since it's the way I got the MC Command Center script mod to work in game at first. These have been the only script mods that have needed this, as all others have worked in my subfolders initially.

So to clarify, it worked in Mods, then Mods\*, but did not show up in game at the Mods\*\* level.

Thanks so much for the mod! So happy to have it in game now!

SOLVED. I feel like such an idiot, maybe you should leave this on for other idiots to see as well. It turns out you have to activate the scrips too, not only the mods. Sorry for wasting your time.

Hi!
could you please help me? The custom interactions are not showing up in my menu.
The first time I downloaded the mod, i unzipped it with WinRar, put it in a subfolder in the Mods folder and added some foods. The second time, I removed all of my CC except for this mod and two food mods, and again, nothing. The third time, I tried using 7-zip. Still nothing. The fourth time I tried downloading the previous version of the mod and still nothing. So it's not conflicting with my other CC or mods, there is no problem with the subfolders and I am using 7-zip...
Please help, I really want to use this mod.
