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.
