Put Away Leftovers > Get Leftovers > ...Nothing there. FIXED
« on: 2007 December 30, 21:59:21 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I have all the exp up to BV and am using a Maxis fridge. Sim puts away leftovers, go to get them out again... and there's nothing there. The "Get Leftovers" dialog comes up, and, but the box is empty and all I can do in cancel out.
Using Director's Cut... any suggestions?


FIXED:

It was the custom food. I had a sim Serve > the custom food, and then store the leftovers, and it borked that household's fridge. Yay! I broke it!

Between the time you had the sim put the leftover away and try to retrieve it, did you happen to use the design tool to change the color of the fridge? I believe doing so will cause the fridge to lose some or all of it's contents. Or, it did cause this to happen at some point. Otherwise, could this be related to custom foods you've added to your downloads folder?

I didn't think of custom foods. Lemme check those.
I haven't changed the color of the fridge, or repurchased it.

This brings up a question I've had for a while.

Let's say you stuffed a fridge full of fresh produce. Then you buy another fridge and delete the old one. Is the fresh food gone, or did it get transferred to the new fridge?

I keep meaning to try it and find out, but then forget to do it once I'm actually in the game.

I'm not certain about produce, but I do know that leftovers are not connected to an individual fridge.  (I learned this in my apocalypse nhood.)  I think I remember that fresh food points go away.  I will double check next time I play.

The Fresh Food point is stored per fridge base. You cannot use point from another fridge in the house. If you buy a new fridge and sell the old one, you'll lose all points.

Leftovers are, however, stored in the lot itself. You can take out leftovers from another fridge in the house. You can even save leftovers in the community lot that isn't owned by anyone. I built a "second-home" type community lot with beds and a kitchen. I sent a sim, have her cook a meal and put leftovers in the fridge, and sent her home. When I sent another sim to the same comm lot, he could take out the leftover.

Alright, I removed the one food I had (Tomato soup by HP) and still, no leftovers. >_>

I have Individual Aging by Monique, Stay Things Shrub by Inge, and a vampire skintone hack, along with the standard BV Director's Cut. Oh! And I have KittenKiller and Insim.. and a few of the Director's Cut remodels by Jase for Inteen compat.

Was the food in bowls? I've had problems with cereals and with mac'n cheese so far - I was able to get the food (i.e. it did show up in the dialog), but as soon as the fridge was closed again, it vanished.

I had some hamburgers... and, uh... Salad? Oh! And cereal.
They're going to move out, so I'll see how that works. Maybe with a new home it'll reset my leftovers.

I've had that problem before--usually right after installing an EP or a Stuff pack.   I can usually fix it by using the "force error" command with boolprop.

Are you using custom fridges that are not Seasons ready? Fridges without the Seasons codes can take left overs, but you cannot get them out.

This is all with maxis fridges.
Also, with the non-seasons fridges, I've noticed that the option "Get Leftovers" does not exist, IIRC. But the option exists for me, there's just nothing there.

I'll try to force an error and see what happens.
