Product: The Sims 4
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? Issue since Outdoor Retreat
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Current
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In the game's XML files.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims do not get calories from high-calorie foods. The foods also restore hunger to a large amount.
What do you expect to see? Sims should gain weight from eating food
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? No
This is hardly a big bug, and sorry if it's already posted here in some form or another (Crin I did attempt to peruse your bug list before posting). It relates to the game's calories system. I was investigating these for a video I did on the fit/fatness system on my Carl's Sims Guides channel. It appears these were forgotten and set to 0 by default with hunger regeneration of 175 which is very high and usually only given to the most filling foods, yet do not contribute to Sim weight gain. The following are missing calorie values and need their hunger regen looked at:
Pan De Muerto
Ceviche and Chips
Butternut Squash Soup
Pan Fried Tilapia
Fish and Chips
You'll note a lot of these are Outdoor Retreat. So for that reason they should be easy to look up and fix. Some players do watch their Sim's weight or want to gain/lose it so it'd make sense for foods to provide consistent calories. it feels like this is a bug by accidental omission.
Italian meatballs, camper's stew, should probably be 600. Desserts from 400-500, Roast chicken 400, The fish ones 350ish and egg-based dishes 200 and soups/salads sub-200 (as garden salad is 50 and another salad is 75). This would be in line with what others provide with similar components.
