[OPEN] Off Grid Living: Some quick meals like drinks can't be used

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020 (64 Bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Add "Off-the-Grid" lot trait to a lot and open the "Have a Quick Meal" menu in any refrigerator.
What happens when the bug occurs? Options for making cereal, milk, orange juice, yogurt, and water are grayed out with the tooltip "There is no available microwave."
What do you expect to see? The option to prepare the above quick meals without a microwave.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Occuring upon patching my game to 1.52.100.1020, testing the new "Off-the-Grid" lot trait.

I apologize if this has already been reported or mentioned, I took some time to search this issue before posting and couldn't find anything. I know new features like this come with some kinks to sort out, so I figured I would report this issue. Since my Sim is able to prepare other perishable food without power (eggs and toast, ham and cheese, etc.) I am not sure if this is an issue with the new lot trait or just a "quirky" feature.

 

Thank you for looking into this!

I noticed this as well but if you have a cooler, you can get a drink from that.

Fixed an issue in which some quick meals were requiring a Microwave while being Off-The-Grid when it is not needed. Yogurt needing a microwave? I think not!

 


Fixed in Patch 1.63.133/ Console 1.25

 

This is not fixes

Here is my sim, who is now rather unhappy that she can't even get a yummy glass of milk (after foraging so hard for the money to buy one)... And not appreciating the new (bad) buff she got from eating mother nature's gift of harvested wild fruit!

 

She gathered water (for ice, and other water stuffs), bought the appropriate fridge, and (as shown in pics) had the ice levels topped up.

@crinrict you moved my post (which was posted first) to a later post - and pushed it into comments? Why is that?

@InfiniteVerve I'm not sure what you mean. This issue was supposed to be fixed but it's not so I re-opened the fixed thread.

This is about the quick meals off-grid not working?

(this thread is from 2019)
