If you mean because my name here is nobody and the name in the readme files is dumbfool, then they are all created by me.  My name on this forum is just different than the name I use in the readme.  You can always compare the resources in SimPE to see that my hacks are all original creations.

I'll look into it.  If you see this before I reply again, please try running the game with testingCheatsEnabled on and upload a log file of the error as a file attachment please.  And I'll see what the problem is.

Nope, the code is all my own. In fact, it does not take off the Cool Shades (by default). The main twins hack I made was going to conflict with Squinge's take off accessories hack. So I decided to include a similar feature in mine (just so people don't have to choose between my hack and Squinge's). Actually, I think this addon removes the rewards for some activities that Squinge's does not (such as drinking an instant meal).  I used to have the Squinge hack in my game.

OMG  Better locations for food serving and dropping

* Requires     : The Sims 2 (base game)
* Compatibility: The Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open For Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Store Edition, FreeTime, Apartment Life, Mansion & Garden Stuff, all Stuff Packs

Have you noticed Sims walking far distances all over the lot to find places (counters/tables) to put serving platters on, especially on apartment lots?  How about the Sim who prepares a meal in their apartment and then serves it up on the rooftop tables instead of on the tables in their own apartment?

This hack will eliminate most bizarre and unrealistic behaviors such as that.

The place setting (serve) locations are altered as follows:

- For apartments, only sets places inside of the current apartment (can be disabled)

- For all lots, will only serve to tables 15 or less tiles away

The drop food (serving platter or single dish) locations are altered as follows:

- For apartments, only drops on counters/tables/floors within the current apartment (can be disabled)

- For all lots, will only drop on counters/tables 10 or less tiles away.  If no counters/tables are that close, then it will drop on the floor.  This is done instead of strolling up to the rooftop just to drop it on a rooftop table

- Allows many counter/table drops to be canceled, which results in the food being dropped on the floor (as opposed to the default game behavior which prevented most counter/tables drops from being ever being canceled)

Some types of food will not be affected by this hack, such as: individual Pizza Slices & Chinese Takeout Boxes.  The Pizza Box itself and the main Takeout Tray are affected, meaning it's only the individual servings that are ignored by the main hack.  You'll want to try the much more invasive ADDON hack to restrict drop locations on any food types that are not affected by the main hack.  But the ADDON will affect many other "droppable" objects in the game as well though.  So the drop locations for the OFB pet brick, possibly some custom content objects, mail from the mailbox, etc will all be affected.  That is not necessarily a bad thing.  In fact, it allows those objects be dropped in more realistic locations as well (instead of on far off end tables up on the roof).

  - This is only necessary if you have the Apartment Life expansion pack.  It allows the sleep-related fixes described below to work for neighbors on apartment lots.  But you do not need it if you already use apthack by MATY, which seems to have a similar effect as my fix.  The "Apartment Fixes" hack from Simlogical's Inge Jones stills needs my fix though.

Nightlife (or higher) is required to have the "Call To Meal" option available, since it was added by that expansion pack.  But the place setting fixes are applicable to (and compatible with) the Base Game and/or University.

This hack changes the behavior of the "Call To Meal" interaction and of the place setting logic.  When a Sim serves a meal, individual plates or bowls are set down at any available tables for all of the Sims (and greeted visitors) in the household.  I refer to that process as "place setting".  Be aware that most of the changes can be toggled off using the Customizing information, should you wish to selectively restore any of the default game behaviors.

These are the "Place Setting" fixes:

- No longer sets a place for toddlers, since they are too young to eat adult food anyways (and they can not sit at a table either - only a high-chair)

- No longer sets a place for plantSims or servos, since they don't need to eat human food (they lack a hunger motive)

- No longer sets a place for dead Sims (ghosts); take a guess why!

- No longer sets a place for sleeping Sims, since you don't know how long they will be asleep for (the food could be spoiled by the time they awaken)

- No longer sets a place for Sims that aren't hungry (60%+ hunger motive)

- Prevents serving "toddler mush" to plantSims toddlers

- While visiting a neighbor's apartment, allows places to be set for everyone inside of that neighbor's apartment (so you can share a meal more easily with the neighbors).  * I recommend using my "Better locations for eating" hack to help make that scenario possible.  The two hacks work very well hand-in-hand!

- No longer sets an extra place just because a high-chair exists on the lot, which the default game had done even when you didn't have any kids!

- For meals prepared in communal areas of apartment lots, sets a place for all family members, guests, and apartment residents that are in communal areas

These are the "Call To Meal" fixes:

- No longer calls these Sims to the meal: plantSims, servos, toddlers, ghosts, sleeping Sims, non-hungry Sims

- No longer sends Sims to empty plates/bowls to eat, since that just causes the interaction to get canceled (obviously, you can not eat from an empty bowl)

- Calls multiple Sims to a serving platter, instead of just 1 Sim (very awesome)

- While visiting a neighbor's apartment, allows all Sims inside of that neighbor's apartment to be Called To The Meal (instead of no one at all being called, as the game did by default).  * For family members to stay in that apartment to eat (instead of taking the plate back home), try my other hack "Better locations for eating".

- Allows "Call To Meal" to function on custom content Serving Dishes/Platters (and thus, it probably conflicts with any hacks that do the same, so check for and remove any conflicting hacks!)

It also prevents grabbing plates/bowls from empty serving dishes, which was a glitch present in every EP/SP and the base game.  It had usually occurred when 2 Sims each tried to grab a plate when only 1 serving was left.  The game let each one grab a plate, with the last one coming from an empty platter.

One last feature allows Sims to make multiple attempts to grab the food dish, in case the first time failed.  Why would it fail?  Another Sim could have been blocking the path.  This feature is very important for Call To Meal interaction.  Since multiple Sims can now grab plates off of a serving platter, there is a high chance that the Sims will route to the platter at the same time and bump into each other each trying to grab a plate.  That frequently results in 1 or more Sims failing to grab the plate they wanted and their "Eat" interaction gets canceled.  But this "multiple attempts" feature allows them to try again a few more times if they failed their first attempt.  The feature does affect all attempts to "Grab A Plate" off of a platter, not just "Call To Meal" even though that is where its most useful.

For best results, I highly recommend pairing this with my other hack named, "Twins fixes and serve meal fix".

This hack is a replacement for "Eat at neighbor's apartment", which is now discontinued.  All of the features of that older hack are included in this one, along with many new features.  It no longer requires Apartment Life, now giving features even as far back as the base game.  But it now requires 2 of my addons.

The hack forces Sims to choose more realistic locations to eat their food.  It prevents them from wandering far distances just to sit at a specific table.  So now your Sims won't walk 10,000 feet up 4 floors to the far corner of the roof, if that is the only place where a table can be found that's not in-use.

By default, it does the following (most of which can be customized or disabled):

- For food located within an apartment, forces the food to be eaten inside of that apartment.  This means that Sims are not allowed to take the food out to communal areas.  They must find a place to eat within the current apartment, or else they will have to eat standing up within that apartment.  Food located in communal areas is not affected by this feature.

- The feature above does allow a Sim to eat in a neighbor's apartment, instead of taking the food all the way back to their own apartment to eat in solitude like a weirdo.  This lets your Sims enjoy a meal with a neighbor at that neighbor's apartment, instead of "stealing" a plate and running back home to eat it.

- For all lots, will only choose eat locations that are 15 or less tiles away.  If no chairs are available within that distance or if all of them are in-use, then the Sims will eat while standing up.

The hack will work for all eating interactions of Maxis objects such as Serve a Meal, Grab a Plate, Get Leftovers, Pizza & Chinese Takeout eating, Get Snacks from Fridge, etc.  It should work for most custom objects too, except for ones cloned from the Maxis Chinese Takeout boxes (single servings).

soo... if downloading the addon - will the sit option be available with AL, or is another mod needed for that?
(haven't tested yet...)
You need the main hack (to allow sitting after getting a bottle from the fridge. The addon hack allows sitting when picking up a bottle off the floor.  And you do need the 2 other required things (Game Edition Addon and Globals Pack).  Sits will sit in AL (and all older EPs/SPs too), but only when the comfort motive is 50% or less. You can change that in the Config file too.

Prevents Sims from magically getting a free bottle to feed babies or toddlers when the refrigerator lacks enough food points.  A fridge must now have 3 or more food points (default amount unless you've hacked it) in order to produce a baby bottle.  Also prevents Sims from getting "Toddler Mush" from fridges lacking 6 or more food points (by default unless amount is hacked).  All of this prevents free bottles/mush when the fridge does not have enough food points because that is just cheating through a loophole in the game code.

Also has many cool features which are enabled by default.  They allow the following behaviors.  A Sim can *gasp* sit while feeding a bottle to a baby.  Sims only do it if their comfort motive is at or below 50%.  At above 50% comfort, they will instead feed the baby while standing, but first move away from the fridge after getting the bottle so that they don't block other Sims from using the fridge.  Smart milk will now work for a toddler that drank it while sitting in a high-chair, which was broken by default in the base game of 2004 and in every EP/SP.  Bad (red) smart milk will also give its penalties.

The sit to feed baby feature only works for bottles taken directly from a fridge.  For bottles picked up off the floor, you will need to use the ADDON hack.  The ADDON contain its own Customization file, whose settings actually override many of the main hack's settings.  So if you force plantSims to stand in the main hack and force them to sit in the addon, the ADDON option will takeover and force them to always sit in all situations.  So I suggest mirroring the settings in both files (make them the same).  The ADDON will only work for the default Maxis baby bottle.  No custom bottles will be affected.  So ask the custom bottle author to add a similar feature if you want.  Tell them that they have my permission to copy the code from my hack if they wish; but it will require my "Globals Pack" to work!

Fixes
~~~~~
There are 2 fixes available as well:

- FIX_BASE.rar

Only use it in the base game alone (meaning no EPs/SPs are installed).  It simply fixes glitches related to Smart Milk that were addressed by EPs/SPs newer than the base game, which Maxis failed to ever fix in a base game patch.

Without this fix, Sims can not clean up dirty Smart Milk bottles from a high-chair tray, nor can toddlers drink Smart Milk while in a high-chair.

- FIX_SNS_BV_FT.rar

Only use this fix if your latest EP is Seasons, Bon Voyage, Store Edition, or FreeTime.  Do not use it if your latest EP is Pets or earlier.

It simply fix a glitch that prevents plantSim toddlers from being able to drink Smart Milk while sitting in a high-chair.  The glitch was addressed by EPs/SPs newer than FreeTime (meaning AL/M&G), which Maxis failed to ever fix in any SNS/BV/FT patches.

This is an addon meant to be used with the "Twins fixes and serve meal fix" hack.  But this "addon" is actually standalone too, meaning it doesn't really need "Twins fixes and serve meal fix" to be installed.

The addon supplements the "take off aspiration rewards before eating" feature of the main hack.  It allows the rewards to be removed in even more situations than the main hack does.  Those extra situations are defined below:

- getting snacks and cans from a fridge

- buying snacks and cans from a vending machine

- eating snacks already on the lot

- drinking from cans already on the lot

- eating pizza

- eating Chinese takeout food

Effects
~~~~~~~
If this addon is used "stand-alone", then rewards won't be removed for all other types of eating (such as grabbing a dish from a serving platter/bowl and eating from bowls/plates already on the lot).  The main hack itself is required for those other types.

The config file of the main hack is not used by this addon.  So even if you disable option 0x4 "Toggle: take off Aspiration Rewards before eating?" of the main hack, the addon will still remove reward objects before eating.  You must delete the addon to stop it from taking off rewards before eating.

Neither the main hack nor this addon will take off rewards for:

- drinking coffee or espresso or hot chocolate

- drinking lemonade from a lemonade stand

- drinking juice from a juice stand

- drinking liquor or juice from a bar

- drinking a glass of water

- drinking from a toasting set

Fixes issues related to twins being born, especially when you have other hacks that increase the maximum number of family members allowed per household.  There is even an option to customize the chance that eating cheesecake will result in twins, instead of using the game's default "chance" of 100%.  The hack comes pre-configured with that chance set to 20%.

By default, it also enables a few features as follows.  It prevents servo robots and plantSims from grabbing a plate after serving a meal, because both of those types of Sims lack a hunger motive.  It forces Sims to take off Aspiration Rewards before eating, since leaving them on just wastes the rewards' abilities (meaning the amount of charge remaining).

The main reason for this hack is that the other 3 listed at the top of the Known Conflicts section all conflict with one another, meaning you can only use one of them at a time.  My own hack incorporates features from all 3 of them and even takes things much further by adding more features and fixes.
