I created Srsly's Complete Cooking Overhaul to make all of the cooking in the game to be more immersive and realistic.
To me, cooking was very boring. I missed having to actually shop for my groceries and needing to think about what my Sim could afford.
That is exactly what this mod does.
Current Version of SCCO: 1.3.7
With this mod, you are able to shop for groceries in The Sims 4.
You can purchase everything you would ever need for cooking with ease.
New "Shop for Groceries" Interaction found on:
- Mobile Phone (Child-Elder)
- All Computers
- The "Slablet" Tablet
- All Cash Registers (Get to Work*)
Buying Cooking Ingredients
Not only do you have to cook with many different EA ingredients, but you also have 18 new maxis match ingredients that are required for most dishes.
When you are shopping you can decide what you want quickly by picking directly from an easy sort menu.
NOTE: If you use Custom Harvestables by IceMunMun, Lenaid, KingZace, or BrazenLotus they will show up under their specific sort tag while shopping for groceries.
New Custom Ingredients
All of the new ingredients can be bought by clicking on the "Purchase Cooking Ingredients" bubble when shopping for groceries.
Most of the new ingredients when bought are in a package form. Just like you would buy from a real grocery store.
I decided to package everything to bring more immersion into the actual grocery aspect of the mod. Since you would not go to the store and just buy one egg.
Not only are the packages more aesthetically pleasing when decorating your own grocery stores, but your Sims will actually save some Simoleons by buying packaged ingredients over single ingredients.
You will need to open the packaged ingredients before cooking.
Each packaged items will give you 3-8 of the single ingredient once opened.
You can open packaged ingredients by clicking on them in the world or in your Sims Inventory.
New Ingredients List:
- Red Meat
- Flavor Extract
- Popcorn Kernels
All new ingredients are Base Game Compatible.
Most of the packaged ingredients also have a single small slot on top so they can be stacked.
(Example: Meat Packages in the photo above).
Some single ingredients can be eaten by Sims raw.
But be careful, some things are not meant to be eaten uncooked. You might just get sick.
EA Recipes Overhauls and Changes
I have changed all EA recipes to make them more realistic.
So now you will need to use more of the EA harvestables as well as my new ingredients to cook all dishes.
All packs that have added new recipes have been altered. I will continue to add new recipes upgrades as new packs are released.
NOTE: At this time I will not be making a "Ingredients 100% required verison" as this breaks EA Butlers, Catering, Baristas, Bartenders.
I have made recipe changes to all:
- Gourmet Cooking
- Grilled Food
- Campfire (Outdoor Retreat)
- Grand Meals (Seasons)
- Ice Cream Machine (Cool Kitchen Stuff)
- Popcorn Machine (Movie Hangout Stuff)
- More to Come!
Desserts as Baking
All desserts that were once found under cooking are now in the baking menu like they should be.
Any items that were not desserts that were in baking found a new home in the cook menu.
All of the items that had a category change also now give skill gain for their new category.
(ie. Cakes that are in baking now give baking skill exp.)
NOTE: All cakes/pies/cookies (desserts) require the Baking Skill, not Cooking Skill
Additional Serving Sizes
All EA recipes now have a Small (1), Medium (4), and Large (8) serving size.
Including Desserts, Experimental Food, Market Stall Taste First Foods and more.
Ice cream now also has the default Large (8) carton size, and now a Medium (4) pint size!
Recipe Crafting Cost and Ingredient Costs
What is a crafting cost? Crafting cost is the price you pay to create the dish.
Think of this as misc. ingredients your Sim might use to cook with that aren't required.
All serving sizes now have a set crafting cost:
- Small (1) = §5
- Medium (4) = §10
- Large (8) = §15
This means if you have all of the "Required Ingredients" for a dish.
It will only cost you §5-§15 depending on the serving size you create.
You can craft most foods without the required ingredients, but this will cost you more.
You are charged an extra §3 if you do not have the "Required Ingredients"
So in total, you will end up paying the Crafting Cost + Ingredient Cost + §3
