    I have it. Just a couple of seconds but definitely noticeable. Gonna check on AHQ to see if anyone reported it.

    Yep! Not a major issue but it’s a bit jarring.

    I couldn't find anything on AHQ. Just a couple of menu delay issues from November of last year. Do either of you have mods or cc? I have one mod, UI Cheats, and a few pieces of cc.

    Some minor adjustment mods but nothing big right now. Had MCCC but haven’t put it back yet after it was updated.

    I have one mod for my Sim's face, a skin and I made sure it was updated after the patch. . But the delay is not present OUTSIDE of the new Cottage Living world. The menu comes up automatically in Oasis Springs where my Sim used to live. As my sims is cooking alot this delay is really getting fustrating.

    Huh…my sims live in windenburg. Is it the entire menu? I may have misread if so. Mine only delays when I click cook a meal and all the options pop up.

    The initial menu that pops on the fridge and the stove for me. Thats where the delay is.

    It's the initial stove and fridge menu for me also. And I'm playing in Windenberg.

    Same. Glad I'm not the only one.

    Same issue here, a few seconds waiting for the menu to pop up. Yesterday in my vanilla test save it even caused a game crash when I wanted to look at a few recipes. :( let's hope that crash was just a one time thing.

    Could yours have to do with the food challenge?

    That's not good. It might be a good idea to report this one to Answer HQ.

    That's odd, I also have the slight menu delay thing happening but only for the canning menu specifically... I can open up the stove and fridge menus no problem, but then when I click on 'canning' that's when I get that weird delay.

    I have no mods or cc installed right now and am playing in a brand new save game.

    I also have had the delay, but I've noticed something.

    For me, it has also happened in Windenburg. Thus I suspect that the delay may be caused by Simple Living lot challenge as the game counts up the ingredients your sim and the fridge has and disables foods your sims don't have ingredients for.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    @EgonVM hmmm, that's a possibility. I have the same delay and am doing the Simple Living challenge. If anyone tests this theory please let us know whether or not it still happens.

    I noticed this delay prior to installing Col, after the patch was installed.

    Yeah, I'm having an issue as well. While not game-breaking it is a little annoying. Off-topic, but is anyone having trouble getting foxes to leave their lots? Like I don't have the option to shoo them away, they just hang around the lot and pester my chickens, even when putting my coops and chickens in the household inventory they still stick around. :-/

    I dont find them very helpful. I rather have people test things out here. Im going to turn off the Simple Living challenge and see if that helps.

    The lag is a bit annoying but that's about it. My game didn't crash any more when selecting a food to cook. There have been more annoying bugs than this one.

    I turned the Simple Living challenge off and reloaded and still had the issue.

    I'm having this problem as well. Cooking in general for me is just not working. The delay when using a refrigerator or stove literally gives me the spinning wheel of death before opening the UI for recipe selections. Every time. I've also been having major delay issues group cooking with two available sims. Cooking skill is building up EXTREMELY slow (or not at all) as well. I'm trying to play a decades challenge and cooking lag makes the save unplayable for me.
