I need people to test this and be kind because i spent 7hrs flat on it. Basically, this hack removes the custom food from the plate when eaten - it is only a band-aid to the problem not a fix. So far it seems to be working for me... what it does is removes the object instance. There are two objects to a meal - the meal and the plate. It removes the meal if there is nothing left because normally the meal remains but is an invisible object with no value.

It does not remove the ability to lick the plate like I thought it would; this is on both pie menus and the plate pie menu has everything the meal piemenu has. Well, try it out guys and let me know. It was an agonising project. No pics cause all I could show are other people's foods and empty plates.

Thank you.

PS. I'm not sure if you need any expansions but I have them.

IMPORTANT: Thanks to user feedback, I've found that this only works with expansions up to NL. That means the those who have OFB will find this hack useless. I don't know when I'll be updating.

EDIT: Version 3 is now up and available. It removes the problem of "double dipping" which was the case - long story. In short the script was making the game try and remove the object twice! It should be complete now. So feedback is really appreciated because I need to find the rest of the possible bugs.
