This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated 12 Jul 2007. I have corrected the language strings for the non-US users - there was some issue with them not saving in SimPe, but it's sorted out now. If your menus do not display correctly, then please download again. If you are not having issues there's no need to redownload**

Aloha!

Presented here, for your sims dining pleasure, old fashioned Fried Chicken.

There was a lot of work put into these but I don't begrudge the time it took. I had to insert the whole preparation stage, which was quite challenging. Through doing the 4 restaraunt meals I have learned exactly how foods work & because of that I am able to make other, new foods YAY!!

As you can see, all of the animations are available. The sim properly prepares the food, cooks it & the food disappears from the plate as it should. Everything works - burned food, fresh food, Make/Make Many & Put Away Leftovers. The sim requires cooking skill level 3 & because these new foods came out with NightLife you'll need to have it installed.

A bit of history on this: Squinge originally extracted all of the restaraunt meals & I had updated them for him last year. The problem was that those meals never had any preparation animations. Squinge has given me a lot of encouragement plus I am just plain determined. Finally I have finished making the new meshes & figuring out how to properly animate these. So, please, if you have the old versions, delete them because (with Squinge's agreement) I have used his original GUIDs - we are trying to be a bit economical with the GUIDs. If you look inside the file you will see Squinge's name in there - it is my way of ackowledging him even though I started these new foods completely new.

Other meals in this series:

Lime Seared Prawns
Nectarine Tartlette
Filet Mignon
