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

Remove the Jambalaya Custom Recipe Files as that is broken



Compatible with Update PC: 1.77.146.1030 / Mac: 1.77.131.1230

Please always make sure to keep the interaction script and package files up to date

Release Notes:

Update 13th October, 2021 : Version 6-4

Update 6-4


New Resources by icemunmun

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.


Localisation: Chinese (wuccwzt), Dutch (ElenaInTheSims), French (PharaohHound, cinthila), German (plasticbox), Korean (ohmysims), Spanish (gato_24), Portugese (simshout), Italian

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.

After downloading the custom foods and reading through them I have a few questions since it seems this morning my brain is not working clearly ;p

does this work with these two mods or is it included in this one ? and they will they work with Scumbumbo Faster Gardening and or Evolve plants,

Greycurse's Ingredient overhaul
More Logical Cooking

I have missed custom foods and love the all the cooking overhauls since my sims are chefs more than anything else because I like to cook so much.

This may be a silly question but I don't need the script file from plasticbox's custom foods interactions anymore, right? Just checking.

Just the most recent one( with the last added food).Have only one version in game at a time.

The last file doesn't have a .ts4script file in it, just a .package file. Is it supposed to be like this? It's a .rar file that downloads.

The script remains unchanged and does not require an update.Only the interaction package is updated.But I can understand the confusion!I will update the .rar to include the script too.

With this mod, would it be possible to make an object like the TS3 chicken coop a harvestable object that gives up to 10 eggs (which could be required for recipes like... I don't know... omelets)? How does this work?

See the thread that's linked in the upload description. There is also a similar thread on custom harvestables in Create > Tutorials. For eggs see the custom ingredients mod in Create > Feedback.
