Somehow this evaded my marking as fixed

 


Sims were just a little over-excited by the prepped ingredients, eating them straight out of the fridge. A lot! Sims will no longer autonomously eat prepped ingredients when eating leftovers.

Fixed in Patch 1.105.297/1.87

Please create a new thread if you're still experiencing this issue,

@kittyspacegirl yeah, I'm not sure this is a bug as it might be intended that way or at least for certain things that I am experiencing, but it is annoying. Like, this happened last night when my sims had purchased cheese from a stall in order to make a planned meal for an event I was going to have them have the next sim day. When they got home and shortly after I put the cheese in the fridge, despite there being three meals in the fridge, they all autonomously grabbed the cheese and were eating it, I managed to cancel some of them and put the slices back in the fridge, but others had eaten it 'cause I was focusing on something else in the game and forgot that I needed to be careful they didn't eat the cheese. But yeah, when it happens I then have to have them make or buy more. I don't know for sure if this is intentional programming or not, I do think it's cool they can eat the prepped ingredients, but wish they wouldn't do so autonomously or when grabbing "leftovers"
What prepped ingredients specifically are your sims eating?

I think this is part of a larger problem with the “get leftovers” command - I haven’t tried it yet with prepped ingredients, but my Sims’ preferences are generally:

 

1. a piece of cheese

2. a slice of bread if cheese is not available 

3. a piece of cake if neither bread nor cheese is available

4. actual meals if and only if there’s no bread, cheese, or desserts in the fridge.

I've got this too. I've started taking the leftovers out of the fridge so they can grab some from a plate instead.

I use "leftovers" mostly for breakfast as my Sims batch cook breakfast foods for a few days at a time to save hassle in the morning. So now I line up a few plates on the counter top for them to get something more appropriate than a block of cheese before school/work/etc... because it's just odd.

I noticed this the other night. My Sims were eating the batter, dough, and prepped veggies, which was super annoying as I was planning on using these things to make some meals.

Yeah. You have, in the fridge:

 

1. Island Vegetables Feast

2. Waffles 

3. waffle batter 

 

I have to all but reset object to get them to eat anything BUT batter!

They also seem to prioritize eating prepped ingredients? I usually have at least 1-2 different dishes stored in the fridge but they run straight for the raw pancake batter. I can see sims eating cookie dough, but uncooked prepped meat? Ew.

I've also had issues with this, My vegetarian sim also seems to go straight for the prepped meat over everything else and getting sick.

@kittyspacegirlI think it may be designed that they will eat the food that will expire the quickest, but that is only from my own experience, not from any knowledge of the coding...but of course it doesn't make it any weirder to eat batter over finished products lol.

 

*EDIT: I meant spoil/expire soonest, as in 1 day versus 3 days out, etc.
