Hello everyone! After going back to play on The Sims 2 for a while I realised that I prefer the way that Sims eat in that game. Full meals wouldn’t completely satisfy hunger and it took a while for them to eat and they would chat. I missed this and decided to see if I could make this happen in The Sims 3. So, here we have my first two ever mods! The reason I wanted to make this mod was because I wanted Sims to be able to eat a main meal and have a dessert after it too.
There are two files contained within this mod and each one changes the way that Sims eat. It is perfectly fine to have one or both in your game at the same time. I’ll discuss what each file does below.
Meals will give 100 points (1/2 Hunger Bar)
Snacks will give 50 points (1/4 Hunger Bar)
Drinks will give 25 points (1/8 Hunger Bar)
10 dishes made per serving instead of the default 8.
Sims will take 30 bites of food before it has gone instead of the default 15.
Sims will sit and talk for up to 60 in-game minutes
Both of these files combined will hopefully allow your Sims to have a better dining experience. I enjoy having my Sims sit down as a family and eat, so when one Sim has already sat down to eat, they won’t be finished by the time everyone else comes along and joins him. These values also work with the food introduced to the game through The Sims 3 Store! So feel free to have your Sims bake a pie for after dinner with the Baking Station.
There shouldn’t be any issues with this mod, but I wouldn’t recommend you use it with another mod that alters the same things (although I’ve not seen this mod before which is why I made it).
This mod shouldn’t require any expansion packs or stuff packs and it was created with game version 1.63.
My really good friend Jae made a review of this mod if you are wanting to see it in action 😀
