Currently Working with patch 1.63

Easy Ambrosia
  • Make Ambrosia as level 1 cook
  • serve Ambrosia
  • Buy all fruit/fish from store
  • Serve Any Meal anytime
  • More meals when you Serve Meals.

This mod consists of 5 XML (tuning) mods: Recipe, Fishing, Ingredients, Food, RecipeMasterList. Each of them plays an integral part in making Ambrosia easier to make and more effective in keeping your Favorite Sim(s) alive.

================================

Recipe: deals with the effects ambrosia has on your sim after eating it. For the default lifespan, 90 days, a young adult spends 21 days in that life stage. When you eat ambrosia you not only gain back the original 21 days but 20% as well, which amounts to your sim having 26 days to aging up instead of 21.

Changes made to this section:
  • reduced the skill needed in gardening and fishing to 0, cooking to 1
  • increased extra percentage to 200%, 300%, 400%, & 500%
  • reduced fridge restocking markup percentage from 50 to 0
  • increased fridge quality ingredients from Neutral to Perfect

NOTE: when you use this mod and include the buy all fish and buy all fruits from the store, you don't have to go to the store to make ambrosia. You can click on the fridge or stove and make ambrosia whether you have lifefruit and/or deathfish in the fridge or not.

Yes, it works with other age groups and lifespans as well, young adult and default lifespan were just used as an example.

the files in this section are:
AmbrosiaDefault.rar
AmbrosiaPlus5x.rar

================================

Fishing: This section contains all the fish in the game and the only change I made here was to enable ALL fish (including WA fish) to be purchased from the local grocery store. It was included because it makes it easier to make ambrosia when you can buy deathfish from the store. If you already have a "Buy All Fish" mod you wont need this one. NOTE: the prices are default from EA.

================================

Ingredients: This section deals with the fruits and vegetables in the game, like Fishing, the only change made here was to allow all items (including WA items) to be purchased from the local grocery store. Also like Fishing, being able to buy lifefruit from the store makes it easier to make ambrosia. If you already have a "Buy All Fruit" mod, you wont need this one. NOTE: the prices are default from EA.

================================

Food: this section deals with how many servings in a group meal, how many bites it takes a sim to eat a meal, what time breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner start, chance of cleaning up after eating, choosing favorite food, etc.

Changes made in this section:
  • increased number of servings to 24
  • increased quality multiplier for served food from .75 to 1.0

The files from this section are:
FoodServingsDefault.rar (8)
FoodServings24.rar

Note: increasing the number of servings will increase for All group meals made, not just ambrosia. Really useful for those who are running overstuffed households.

================================

RecipeMasterList as the name suggests, this is the master list of all recipes in the game. By making a few changes, from those available, sims can not only make a single serving of ambrosia, but a group serving as well, plus enabled sims the ability to learn the recipe when they increase their skill from 0 to 1. As an added bonus, if you wish to use it, I made all meals available any time.

The files in this section are:

ServeAmbrosiaPlusAnyMealAnyTime

================================

You have the option to download which section(s) you want/need, but you can only have 1 file from each section at a time.

For those that would like to download a complete package, I have put together 2 versions:
  • EasyAmbrosiaDefault.rar - includes: AmbrosiaDefault, Fishing, Ingredients, FoodServingsDefault, & ServeAmbrosia
  • EasyAmbrosiaWithWorks - Includes: AmbrosiaPlus5x, Fishing, Ingredients, FoodServings24, ServeAmbrosiaPlusAnyMealAnyTime
================================

NOTE: WHEN APPLYING TO A PREVIOUSLY SAVED GAME
As mentioned, if you use one of the ServeAmbrosia files your sims will be able to serve Ambrosia as a group meal and can learn the ambrosia recipe by simply increasing their skill level from 0 to 1. Any sim with a skill level of 1 or higher will need to find an alternative means to learn the recipe. One of the easiest, quickest would be to use Twallan's SuperComputer to give the sim the recipe.

Eating a second or more plate(s) of ambrosia will not add together, rather it will just reset your sim back to day 0 for whatever strength you use.

Please make sure you You understand how to install custom content properly, which can be found in the HELP section.
