Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Let's see... Maximum number of Sims per household: 8
Number of seats at the largest dining tables: 8
Number of servings per meal: 6

It's the Hot Dog/Bun conundrum.

Now all meals can come with 8 servings instead of the default 6. Full houses, small dinner parties, even dorms can now be fed by a single cooked meal (you know, as long as there are only 8 Sims).

I'm almost certain that someone, somewhere has done this already, but I'll be darned if I can find it. So I made this one.

I believe I included all Sim-cookable foods from the base game and all expansions.
Expansion Foods:
Crepes Suzette
Berry Pie
Golden Trout
Appetizer Plates
Comfort Soup

If you have no expansions, fear not, the game will ignore the unrecognized files (and they're tiny).

This will not work with custom food objects. Each food had to be modified individually.
If you have a custom food that replaces a Maxis food, then this mod should affect it.

Update 07/29/2011
You may want to check out Variable Meal Servings. It is compatible with this mod, though it renders it semi-obsolete.

Anyway, Bon Appetit!
