Re: [TO TEST] [GT] Drink for 'To go...' is not working properly

EA Sims Team

Did they used to put the drink in their inventories? Our design just specifies that they're supposed to arrive on the lot, order the food/drink, then leave the lot after receiving the order. It doesn't say anything about putting the drink in their inventory.

If you've seen Sims put the drinks in their inventories in the past, and think the behavior changed recently with a patch, we can investigate that. But if what you're seeing is how it's always worked, then I'm nearly positive this is by design.

They used to do it *only* with 'To Go..' drinks and foods... But not even the put in inventory option appears anymore and the sims not leaves the lot after receiving the order.

@SimGuruNick @crinrict I think I understand what they meant. In the past (not sure how long ago), an active sim ordering a “to go” coffee would put the drink in their inventory just as they’d do with “to go” snacks. Somewhere along the way this has been changed, now active sims treat the to-go cups the same as the dine-in ones; they’ll drink it right away in the shop. I didn’t test if the same is happening to the take-out snacks, though.

Look this:

 

(view in My Videos)

 

When a Sim order a food to go, he pick it up and do an interaction like: **"Save food to go" (My game is in Portuguese, I don't know the name of this interaction in english) and the food appears in his inventory. This is what sould to happen with a drink to go too, like in the past. What is happening now is that the Sim drink it autonomously, and we can't put the drink in his inventory.

 

**The interaction name is: "Put away To Go Food".

@crinrict@SimGuruNick

Hello! I tested and the same issue happens here. When I go to get a Coffee To Go, the Sim instead of keeping it in the inventory he takes the drink and drink it autonomously. I remember that Get Together's cafe didn't do this before, the Sims should keep the drinks in their inventories, like To Go snacks.

Coffe To Go now looks like a Coffe For Here, and I have sure that is not should to happen.

Same issue here. Sims did not do this before, it's really a bug.

@SimGuruNick @crinrict I'm experiencing the same issue with my Sims 4 game and I'm sure that is not by design, I play Get Together since launch and To Go drinks worked exactly like @LeoZL15 says that should work:

 

The Sims order the To Go drink/food -> Bartender prepare it -> Sims pick it and Put away To Go drink/food (put in invetory to drink/eat later, like To Go drinks/foods in real life).

 

To Go foods is working perfectly, the problem is with the To Go drinks.
