New Mods!

I have a number of new mods out so I’ll just list them up.

Extra Credit Homework – If your sim’s kids are stuck bored at home all day due to snow days, sick days, or even holidays, give them something productive to do! With this mod, your sim kids can make up on missed school time by doing extra credit homework when they’re not in school. This mod adds a “Do Extra Credit Homework” interaction to all computers (including laptops) and MultiTabs in your game.

Store Dried Food – This mod adds a set of interactions to all treasure chests that will allow you to easily move custom edible food (dried food) to and from chests.

No Unfinished Room moodlet – This mod effectively removes the unfinished room moodlet. Under EA tuning, if a room has 0.2% missing wall or floor covering, the sim will have the unfinished room moodlet. With this mod, the room must have 99% missing wall or floor covering for the sim to receive the moodlet.

Custom Edible Food: Six Raw Meats

Are your Werewolves tired of hunting so much? Do your Vampires need a change from Plasma Juice, Plasma Juice, More Plasma Juice, and the occasional Plasma Fruit? Give your supernaturals (or even your particularly blood thirsty mortals) a change of pace with these nutritious raw meats.

Note: You must have my Custom Food Script Mod for these foods to function at all. You will not be able to use these foods without my mod.

A few Mod Updates and Summer Time

First, thank you to all of you who wished me well after I injured my back! I’m finally feeling 100% better, though I am still avoiding heavy lifting for now. I’m just glad to be back to my normal self 🙂

So, it’s summer time and, at least on my end, modding has been a bit slow. However, in the last week or so, I have pushed out 4 updates to my script mods. If you’re using any of the following mods, I recommend you get the new updates.

If you use any of these mods, check out the updates! Production on my end might remain slow for a little while, as I’m enjoying the summer a little bit and just looking forward to Supernaturals (and the next WoW Expansion!). Still, please don’t forget to report any problems you experience with one of my mods.

Already Edited OBJK Resources for Custom Food

Latest update:  7 October 2013 –  Fixed an issue with OBP’s Edible Cherry Dessert

Please update your Custom Food Script mod!

Update 17 May 2012 – I update these overrides whenever I find new Custom Food. If there is Custom Food you’d like to see edited, drop me a line.

What is this?

This is a merged package file of my personal edited OBJK resources for Custom Food from all known custom food creators.

If you would like to edit the OBJK resources yourself, you can do so easily: Edit Your Custom Foods Easily: s3sr OBJK Resource Scripts (Batch processing, NO s3pe needed).

:!!!: NOTE: This package contains ONLY the altered OBJK resources. They will NOT add the items to your game, if you have not already installed them. You must download the objects yourself from the creators (see below for links to various collections). Additionally, please note that no objects are altered with these overrides. These overrides merely force the objects to use my custom script, instead of EA’s coding for the WA dried food.

How Do I use these files?

1. You must have my Custom Food Script installed to use these overrides. These overrides require the most recent version of my script mod. You may need to re-download the script.

2. Put the package file in your Mods\Overrides folder and ensure that the Overrides folder has a higher priority than other folders.

If you do not have an Overrides folder and do not know how to set one up:

  1. Go here and download the
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Replace your Resource.cfg with the one in the you just downloaded.
  4. Create a folder a folder called Overrides in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\
  5. Put this mod in your newly-created Overrides folder.
Finally, go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and delete the scriptcache.package.

It’s that easy.

Overrides are included for the following objects

* Includes donator gift OBJK. Remember, this will not be added your game if you have not already installed it.


The following package file contains all OBJK overrides for all currently published ATS3, OBP and Parisian Sims Custom Food. Remember: This package will not add the objects to your game. You must download the objects directly from the creator.

These OBJKs are edited so that different objects use different quality-level script classes. The table below is a general explanation of how I have chosen an object’s script class. Some exceptions may apply.

You must have the most recent version of my mod in order to use these overrides. Download the latest version of the Custom Food Script.

ScriptClass Generally reserved for
NonaDriedFoodLow Sweets & Treats: Macarons, Cupcakes, Donuts etc.
NonaDriedFoodMid Bread-y Foods: Croissants, Pretzels, Muffins, etc.
NonaDriedFoodHigh Savory Foods: Burgers, Tacos, Sandwiches, Quiches, etc.
NonaDriedFoodDessert Fancier Desserts: Forêt-Noir, Religieuse, etc.
NonaDriedFoodPizza Pizza, currently only available from OBP.
NonaDriedFoodCookie All cookies.
NonaDriedFoodRawMeat All raw meats.
NonaDriedFoodSushi All sushi and sashimi related foods.
  • All overrides are merged into one package file.
  • If you do not have one of the custom foods installed, it will not harm your game and you will not see the object in the catalog.
    • If you wish, you may open the package in S3PE and delete the OBJK resources for objects you do not have.
    • You may also edit the OBJK resources in this package to use a different script class.
    • All OBJK resources are properly labelled, so you know what each OBJK is.
  • Put this package in the Mods\Overrides folder.
  • Delphy’s Dashboard may report a conflict with the edible foods. This is a non-issue and can be ignored. | MediaFire Mirror

Script mod: Script for Custom Foods (removes Foul Food, Tunable)

This mod is also available at MTS. This mod is compatible with patch 1.42.

This is an object script mod for Custom Edible Objects such as: Edible Pastries from Around The Sims 3 (see also: Part 2), Easter Chocolates from Around The Sims 3Edible Cupcakes from One Billion Pixels, and Edible Sushi from One Billion PixelsParisian Sims also has some edible custom food.

For a full directory of custom edible food see: Custom Edible Food Directory

If you have ever used those objects (and I do recommend them, they are really fun), you may have noticed that snob sims do not enjoy them as much, because they are using the script class of the WA Dried Food. Additionally, when sims eat those foods, their Tomb Stats counter for Dried Food Eaten increases, and moodlet origin is listed as “From Eating Dried Food.” This script is an altered version of EA’s DriedFood script, which removes those side effects (and more!).

This mod is compatible with patch 1.42.


17 November 2012 – NEW CLASS: NonaDriedFoodRawMeat – This class is used for all raw meats. Raw meats are intended for consumption by Werewolves and Vampires. If you want non-Werewoleves and non-Vampires to be able to eat Custom Raw Meat, download the optional tuning: NonaEdibleFood_RawMeatForAll_Tuning

Custom Raw Meats – You can get Custom Raw Meats made by me and Cmo at Simlogical. These do not require OBJK override, but they do require this mod.

For full change log, visit the MTS post.

Note: This mod contains ONLY the script and the tuning. If you wish for your objects to use this mod, you must enable it by changing the script class in the OBJK resource of your objects. See below for more information.


  • Built with patch 1.33. Should work for 1.31 and 1.32 as well. May work for earlier patches, but I am unable to test this.
  • Does not require any expansion packs.

Conflicts: This mod has no known conflicts.

What is this mod?
This is a wholly new script class based on EA’s DriedFood from World Adventures.

  • Snob sims will not receive the Foul Food moodlet when they eat custom food which uses this script.
  • Custom Food will not contribute towards the dried food eaten statistic in the WA Adventure Journal, when using this script.
  • Moodlet origin will be “From Eating Yummy Meal” instead of “From Eating Dried Food,” when using this script
  • This script has six tunable food quality types (Low, Mid, High, Dessert, Pizza, Cookie). Much better than the EA Original!
  • This script does not replace or otherwise override WA Dried Food. Your WA Dried Food will not be affected by this mod.
  • This script contains custom moodlets! Your sims can eat their custom food on top of their normal meal and get an extra buff for it, if they so choose.

Script Class
The following script classes are available with this mod.

  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodLow
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodMid
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodHigh
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodDessert
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodPizza
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodCookie
  • Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodRawMeat

All food types are tunable.

Why  so many types?
With several different quality types, creators have more options. They can create, for example, candy bars that aren’t very filling, but also a delicious sandwich that can serve as a great meal. Since the different quality types are tunable, users are able to choose how they want the items to function in their own games. Perhaps some people want custom edible foods to only serve as a snack, while others would like them to replace meals entirely. The possibilities may not be endless, but there is a great opportunity for various levels of customization with this mod.

Special Information Custom Pizza Food (such as OBP’s Edible Pizza).

  • All sims receive a custom moodlet (Pizza!) when eating Custom Edible Pizza.
  • Sims with the Pizza Appreciator trait will also receive an “Amazing Meal” moodlet, which grants +40 mood and lasts 8 hours.
    • Fully Tunable. See Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.FoodObjects.NonaDriedFoodPizza XML for tuning.
    • You can disable the Amazing Meal moodlet by setting PizzaAppreciatorMealBuffStrength to 0.

    • You can disable the Great Meal moodlet by setting PizzaAppreciatorMealBuffStrength to 0.

Special Information about Custom Cookies

  • Childish and Excitable sims have a chance to play an excited reaction after eating a cookie. If a sim eats two or more cookies in a row, the reaction will only (possibly) play after the first cookie. Reactions will not play again until the cookie moodlet times out or is removed.
  • This chance is tunable. You can tune it by opening the mod package and altering the _XML called NonaDriedFood.Buffs.BuffCookie.
  • Default chance for excited reaction from Childish and Excitable sims is 50%.

Special Information about Custom Raw Meat

  • By default, non-Vampires and non-Werewolves cannot eat Raw Meats. You can alter this by using the Optional tuning file attached in the downloads section.
  • All vegetarians get sick from eating raw meat.
  • Daredevil non-Vampire/non-Werewolves will get a special moodlet when eating Raw Meats. Requires the Optional tuning file to be placed in your Mods\Packages folder.

Who should use this mod?

  • Creators making custom food might be interested in this mod, as the custom food will function a bit better and will have more options.
  • Users who download custom food which uses this script, will need to download this script (unless otherwise specified by the creator).
  • Users who have downloaded custom food which does not use this script, can use my OBJK overrides so that their custom food uses this script.

How to Install:
1. Place the NonaEdibleFood_WITHCustomBuffs.package in your Mods\Packages folder, or wherever you keep your mods.
2. Make sure you have installed some custom food from ATS3, OBP or Parisian Sims! (see: Custom Edible Food Directory)

Note: This mod does work with ani’s Sell from Inventory mod. Food that uses this script will current only show up in “Food” registers when using ani’s Sell from Inventory mod.

Distribution policy: You may distribute this script with your objects, claim it as your own, upload it elsewhere, whatever you want. Howeverin order to avoid possible conflicts due to duplicate XMLs, I do recommend that you link here and ask people to download the mod separately.
