Barista Beverages on the Coffee Machine

Post by littlelambsy » February 15th, 2019, 1:54 pm

I have icarus's mod for making Barista beverages on the coffee machine, and in the description of the mod it shows a variety of cups, including the regular cup. Does anyone know how to change the cup style when making herb teas, hot chocolate etc? I don't like the cardboard, tall coffee cup style and would rather keep the regular cup for at home use.

I wonder if it might involve more than a simple tuning tweak. The same modder introduced a custom designed glass to the nectar drinking animation, after attempting originally to simply override the nectar glass s.he didn't like with another pre-existing WA glass and it didn't work:

Maybe repeat the steps involved in completing the mod above for the barista bar beverages and/or reach out to the aforementioned modder see if they'd be interested in your modding request?

You may have some trouble reaching him. Icarus used to be a part time NRaas developer and regular contributor here as well as the producer of his own mods on MTS. I'm afraid he's been hibernating on us for a few years now. :(

What a pity! I have many of his mods in my game, he's such a talented individual. Hopefully he returns some day...

@littlelambsy: I'll try to look at the barista bar's code this week-end. It won't hurt to follow my own advice above and try to dig up something from the code following icarus's method for developing the nectar glasses replacement mod.

Will def' keep you posted.

Here's the update @littlelambsy:

I looked up the coffee machine code with DebugEnabler and I was able to identify the specific names and IDs of the unwanted cardboard cups. Unfortunately, as I anticipated, replacing them with the regular cups cannot be achieved easily. It would involve the creation of a custom script mod, much like the aforementioned nectar glass replacement mod of icarus.

It's beyond my modding knowledge as of today but I suggest you submit this custom mod request to Chain (maybe rename this thread and add "[custom mod request]" in the title?) as I understand Chain might look into mod requests in the future, as his time permits.

Fingers crossed the mod will be live some day :) I agree with you that regular cups for energy drinks and especially for tea-based beverages would add more realism when sims drink indoors.

Thanks MissPat, I appreciate you taking the time to look at this. I will just live with the cardboard cups for now. I thought it would be more hassle than it's worth. :)
