2nd Aug 2015 : Fixed a wrong occlusion shadow

Mod Info
Developed and tested with game version 1.67
This mod was realized in collaboration with pjgo.

Mod Description
This is an ice cream stand to, guess what, buy ice creams. There are also interactions to
configure the stand opening and closing hours and if the clerk has to wear the career outfit
(if the clerk doesn't already have one, the everyday outfit will be cloned, you can then change it).
It's a role giving object, compatible with NRaas Register (not required, but recommended).

Objects Info
The cones are recolored clones of the default basegame ice cream cone.
Stand: HighDef: 1298 vertices, 963 polygons. LowDef: 465 vertices, 386 polygons.
You'll find it in the Build Catalog under Community/Misc. It's only available on community lots.
Price 0. It has 4 CASTable channels, because 3 wasn't cool enough.

Policy
If you re-use/edit the meshes/textures give credit to my modding partner
and don't re-upload them on pay-sites.

Tip of the day
I like to place the ice cream stand in the graveyard, but you weirdos feel
free to put it on a beach or wherever you want.
I'm available for giving screenshotting lessons by the way
(if it wasn't clear, that was ironic, I know I suck)

Issues and technical info
The sign/logo looks a bit blurry from afar and from certain angles. Oh boy, we tried
to make it better, we sure did, eventually we even used a dds without mipMaps.
For some reason the stand is placeable on a counter. I think it's because the
class derives from ShoppingRegister, which implements the interface
ICounterSurfaceAppliance, but even overriding some HandTool* methods
it's still placeable on counters. Go figure!

Just saw Sandy's new ice cream items over on ATS3. And followed her link to your Mod here. Thank you so much for doing what EA should have done in the first place. Finally my sims will have to pay for their ice cream, without me having to track the little pixelated thieves down and deleting the funds from them. Again, thank you!!!

Is your game patched as recommend in the Mod Info section of the mod's description?
Are you using NRaas Register or another mod that stops townies' immigration?

Can you describe exactly what happens? Are the ice creams at least displayed in the shopping window?

My sim goes to the stand, I'm using sandy's object at the moment, I click on it buy food and in the window that opens just juice shows, I have run delphy's dashboard no conflicts, in the show settings I can see all the ice creams and juice in the list, i'm at a loss.

It's a bit hard to guess.
- try to redownload the mod (don't ask me why this should make sense and fix the problem)
- use the super-patch to make sure your game is really patched to 1.67

If you want to make a further test, try placing a WA food cash register (if you don't have WA,
try with my custom cash registers) and see if you can buy an ice cream with that, keeping
in mind that Sims will get it on a plate and will eat it with a spoon (because the animation
to eat ice-cream is not the standard animation to eat regular foods and that's the one
the registers use).

EDIT: even if you are using Sandy's stand, you still have all 3 .packages of the mod in your
Mods/Packages, right? (well, the stand itself is not needed, since you are using a "custom" stand).

I checked my game and it is patched to TS3 1.67.2.0240, I did however re-downloaded the super patcher and installed (I removed all my mods), I re-downloaded your mod and installed, same thing, I also tried the WA food register and there not showing in their either, I'm definitely dumb founded lol. I cannot think what could be wrong.

This mod doesn't use a custom role, but technically it might still be possible to do that
(or I could rewrite it to use a custom role). I'm actually at the moment busy with something else but, even
if I wasn't, I hope you understand that I can't keep supporting and updating my mods forever.

After going through all my mods thinking it was the problem, I switched households and it works, then I changed back to my original sim and it stopped working, found the issue, if you sims trait is vegetarian it wont work lol, so I changed his trait and it works fine, weird or what lol

That sounds odd. The "love the heat" trait is related to the temperature motive, wasn't that freezed?
Are you using a selectable Sim to handle the stand?

EDIT : Ehm... see, now I'm mixing my mods, this one doesn't allow to select the motives to freeze :D

Let me get this straight: are you saying that Sims with the vegetarian trait can't buy ice creams? Can you confirm this please?
Lab Assistant

#67 Old 19th Jul 2015 at 11:43 AM
That is what im saying, my sim would only buy juice, the minute I changed his trait from vegetarian it worked, so im guessing that's what the problem is, I ruled out CC after going through it and spent hours on, I also ruled it out as it worked on another sim, I even reset the sim in question and still nope it would not work until I did what I did and changed his trait. I even tried putting the trait back to vegetarian and it still wouldnt work, the minute I switched it again it works, so yep I would say the vegetarian trait is the issue.

To answer my own question for the benefit of others: I know they can buy juice and NO your active family doesn't get the money and NEITHER does the vendor.

I was just coming here to report that the NPCs only buy the juice. I have no idea why they can't buy the ice cream.
