Faster Eating & Cooking
« on: 2009 June 24, 02:46:21 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

This mod speeds up the eating & cooking process.Also eating out will be a little faster.

Other tweaks added are:
Sims will not get annoyed when a guest makes the bed.
Faster movement around town.
Takes less time to bathe when using Bath & bubble bath on the Shower of Power.
Sims won't endlessly walk around when talking on the phone.
Added Grill & Barbecue items for faster cook outs
Any interaction to do with mirrors has been lowered!
Brushing teeth no longer takes 20 minutes to complete!
Microwave added,cook twice as fast.
Spend less time in jail! Default is 6 hours,changed to 3.
Added Toy Oven & some tweaks.
Cheaper Maid Cost:80 default 120
Tweaked the rate you can "Call Over" sims.
*Makeout time on beds & sofas has been cut to 1/3.
*Sped up stirring process on mixing bow


Notes:The Excessinator stove hasn't been tweaked as I couldn't find the file to do so as it's content from the Sims 3 store.Any item bought from The Sims 3 store will not be affected.
The faster movement speed may conflict with Awesomemod,will change upon request,all needed to do is remove 1 file.

Added as separate package the ability to bathe at anyone's home.In other words 10 people won't be standing at the bathroom door wanting to kick your as*,because it's "Appropriate,not Inappropriate"! Item is finished & complete.

Faster Cooking Only Mod has been uploaded.Do not combine with the Changes file.Slightly enhanced cooking speed on stoves a bit more.**Sped up stirring process on mixing bowl.

Uploaded an XML file that you can adjust the bills for those who know how.Those that don't get this to make the package file: http://www.simlogical.com/Sims3ToolsForum/index.php?topic=171.0

This mod is awesome, the faster cooking is what I waiting for. I'm downloading it now.

Can you make faster cooking only on stove? I found that preparing food is not that long, but cook on stove is like forever.

And also longer eating? So there's a change to make a whole household members have dinner together. No eating alone.

Can you make it separated package file?

Yes,I can make a separate file.Not sure about the longer eating part,the default is 15 bites per meal & I changed it to 8 & adjusted the hunger per bite at 20.

Update: Makeout for sims on sofas & beds has been set to 15 min.,the default was 30.Updated the file in 1st post.

I too await the separated parts of this mod.  I will be using everything you've included, except the 'faster eating' part.  The 'make out in bed' that just seemed to drag on and on, drove me up a wall.  --Presses thanks button--

Would you be willing and able to extend that to repairs? It annoys me that my skilled tinkerers get told off for lending a helping hand by fixing stuff at other Sims' homes.

I think that this is a two way street. Meaning that visiting sims won't hesitate to use your shower either. I didn't test this though.

Fell free to test it.I only tested the shower at an acquaintance home during the day & it worked without interference.

None of my three stinking guests used my showers, seems to work fine. Now we need fridges and we can pAAArty. Also, I understand correctly that none of these modifications can include store items, as they are buried somewhere?

On a side note, try not to double post. You can get sporked for this by allmaties pretty bad.

I'll also toss in a request for longer, not shorter, eating. I find it exceedingly difficult to have my sims engage in any communal and get the social benefits from it because they eat so fast. I basically have to micromanage a bunch of them to do nothing around the kitchen area for a while, wait for the cook to finish, they have them all grab the food at the same time and hope to god there isn't a bottleneck where they're all tripping all over each other.

I do also miss the serve interaction from TS2 but I imagine that hardcoded and not in this game.

Has anyone noticed if the Changes mod conflicts with AwesomeMod? I'd like to use both, but if I have to choose one over the other, my loyalty lies with AweseomeMod.

I'm looking into the former right now and am having a bit of trouble figuring out where the hell the values for foods are kept.  Food names in the gameplaydata just seem to include cooking animation specifics, and all I've found thus far is eating from your hand and eating from a can.  There doesn't seem to be anything for plate/tray/surface that I've found yet.

As for the latter, seconded.

Addendum: eureka!  How long are we hoping for?  Twice as long?  Three times as long?

Three times as long would be good for me. I like my households to have a meal together once a day to keep their relationships with each other up. At the moment I'm using the telly, but I don't always want them all learning the same skill.

I just found that thread, thanks. I see you added one too, to make the food bowl mixer not take an ice-age.
