Mod Description
No Required Ingredients is similar to No More Ingredients Needed Mod by cyberops (later updated by catalina_45). However, instead of completely removing the ingredients options for all recipes, I only set those that required them to be optional. Therefore, it didn't require so many resources. So, with my version you can optionally use ingredients if you have them:

Mod Versions
You can use them all, or choose which versions you want:
  • RequiredRecipeIngredients - Requires ingredients for all recipes, good if you want the game to be more realistic, can't cook a fish dinner IRL without the fish, right? Includes ALL recipes that has ingredients (including recipes from City Living, Jungle Adventure, Cats & Dogs, and Seasons).
  • NoRequiredIngredientsFOOD - Removes the ingredient requirement for Homestyle, Gourmet, Baking, Campfire, and Cupcake Machine recipes. Additionally, the Bee Tea recipe that came with Seasons.
  • NoRequiredIngredientsHERBALISM - Removes the ingredient requirement for Herbalism Potions.
  • NoRequiredIngredientsSERUMS - Removes the ingredient requirement for Serums.
  • NoRequiredIngredientsVAMPIRES - Removes the ingredient requirement for Plasma Fruit Salad, as well as the Vampire Drinks made at the bar (Draught of Reconfiguration, Plasma Jane, Shadow Realm, Sunlight Reversal Cocktail, The Ultimate Vampire Cure, and Vampire Resistance Cocktail).
  • NoRequiredItemsINVENTION - Removes the item requirement for the Invention Constructor recipes (Alien Portal, Cloning Machine, Satellite Dish, and SimRay).

  • RequiredRecipeIngredients - No pack requirements.*
  • NoRequiredIngredientsFOOD - No pack requirements.*
  • NoRequiredIngredientsHERBALISM - Outdoor Retreat GP Needed
  • NoRequiredIngredientsSERUMS - Get to Work EP Needed
  • NoRequiredIngredientsVAMPIRES - Vampires GP Needed
  • NoRequiredItemsINVENTION - Get to Work EP Needed

*Even though the version includes recipes from different packs, those packs are not required. Any recipe that came with a pack that you don't have, simply won't show up for you. Therefore, you can still use the mod for the recipes you do have.

Mod Conflicts
This mod will conflict with anything that edits these resources:






If in doubt, I suggest using TS4 Package Conflict Detector by scumbumbo.
