6/19/2018 UPDATED for the Seasons patch!
- Updated to work with latest patch! Please re-download
Since there were several reports of missing ingredients, please be sure to check your mods folder for old versions and delete them. You should only have two files (plus however many pack recipes): graycurse_cooking_ingredients_overhaul.package and graycurse_cooking_ingredients_overhaul.ts4script. If you have something like graycurse_buy_ingredients, that file needs to be deleted.
Have you ever found cooking in TS4 to be too easy? Do you yearn for more realistic cooking? Do you enjoy playing a history challenge, or just want more of a challenge in general? Then this is the mod for you!
Experience cooking in an all new way with brand new ingredients: eggs, milk, flour, cheese, bread, sugar, chicken, beef, pasta, and more! These new ingredients, as well as old ones, can be purchased through a new "Buy Ingredients" option on the fridge. You'll need to go shopping now that recipes require all ingredients! Each and every recipe was tweaked to have a more realistic set of ingredients.
The new ingredients add a more realistic element to the cooking experience. They may be purchased through the menu on the fridge, or by enabling buydebug mode and search for "Cooking ...". The ingredient meshes are all from the base game, but were extracted and repackaged by me. I am hoping to refine their appearances in the near future!
If we need more things to cook, we need to buy them from somewhere, right? The all new purchase dialog contains filters for food group types, including one for the new cooking ingredients. Please note that some debug items appear in the list - I am looking into how to remove them, but in the mean time, please don't purchase them. I will be enhancing this list with more food groups as necessary!
Increased Recipe Difficulty
All recipes now require the necessary ingredients. Every recipe has been overhauled to include a more realistic ingredients set, although some further change is possible/likely. Grills and campfires were also updated to require ingredients as well! Snack and vending machine recipe updates will be included shortly.
After downloading and extracting the attached file, the following 3 files must be copied to somewhere in your mods directory:
The recipes files, found in the recipes folder in the download archive, are all optional, and must be copied to somewhere in your mods directory. Each file is titled with the expansion/game/stuff pack number (i.e., Get To Work is EP01 and Dine Out is GP03). Please ONLY copy the files that match the games you own!
If you previously installed my test/beta version, please delete and/or replace all old files.
This will not conflict with the Custom Food Interactions mod, or with any other new recipes/ingredients! This WILL conflict with mods that alter the existing recipes, since all of them are altered here.
I am always open to feedback! Please let me know what you think, or of any improvements that I can make. If you have any suggestions about new ingredients or recipe changes, please let me know!
