Did the 'get leftovers' option disappear or something?

«1
I've repaired my game twice and it just doesn't show up anymore. No mods, no CC. I think it happened after the last patch.

Any idea what the problem can be?

    Do you have leftovers in the fridge for your sims to get? If not, the option won't appear.

    Have you tried selling your old fridge and getting a new one? Maybe the old fridge is glitched for some reason.

    Yes... still not showing. It's frustrating!

    I have food in my Sims' fridge and no 'Get Leftovers' option either.

    This has been happening to me too lately, but only a few times. When it happened and I opened the fridge and hovered over the meals nothing showed up. So I couldn't see what it was/how much was left/the state of it. But I could still direct my sims to eat it from there.

    I am in game now and by checking I see that the fridge in household has the 'get leftover' option. I haven't noticed it missing but then I don't really like to use it, prefering more to just open the fridge and have the Sims choose from there. I don't like it when 'get leftover' makes my Sims get a breakfast plate for dinner and vise versa.

    Doesn't happen all of the time, but it has happened once or twice.

    Mine is fine but I've had this before. Normally seems to resolve once I close the game though.

    When there's a whole bunch of menu options for the fridge, there'll be a second menu button ("More choices" or something). Sometimes, my "Get Leftovers" command is in the second menu view. Is it possible that it went in there instead?

    Not in my case.

    Are you sure the food isn't spoiled? The leftovers option goes away when the food is spoiled. If not you could try dragging the food from the fridge to teh counter.

    Yeah - I have my ancient great-grandmother chef Sim cook all the time to fill up the fridge with meals that don't spoil. There are dozens in there.

    Amusingly, the option came back the next time I turned the game on. Really odd.

    I don't think I've seen the "get leftovers" option either....I'll pay more attention tonight when I log on.

    The phrase "Put Away" is what shows up on my menu. Click on the leftovers and it should show up. It makes the Sim put it in the fridge. I'm not sure when or why the wording changed.

    Doesn't happen all of the time, but it has happened once or twice.

    Were the leftover still good to eat or had any of them spoiled? Check to see if "Clean Out Spoled Food" is available as an option -- maybe if any of the food is spoiled it blocks the Grab Leftovers till the fridge is cleared out. Also if you have custom food mods that could be interfering (just tossing that out there).

    I don't think they have a "leftovers" option in this version. If you click the fridge, then OPEN, a pop-up will show you what's in your fridge and you can "grab a serving".

    The OP is talking about the Get Leftovers interaction on the fridge. It's for getting random food out of the fridge.

    'Get Leftovers' was added in the Cats & Dogs patch.

    Get leftovers need the cats and dogs patch (see above).
    BUT:
    You should still be able to get food without it, right? Just pick "OpeN" then "grab a plate". Just like before C&D!

    Right, you can still get food without it, but it's tedious and inefficient. That's why we now have 'get leftovers' which requires less effort.

    Anyway, the issue is that the option was missing for the OP. Even if there are workarounds, it's good to find out why a certain feature is broken or not working as intended.

    9 times out of 10 it also works to just click the "food" icon in the needs panel and the sim will just go to the fridge and get leftover. Keep an eye on it; about 1 time in ten the sim will choose to cook a meal instead.

    I still have it but I prefer to open the fridge and just pick something though I do sometimes just hit the little icon by the hunger bar to let them get whatever.

    I like the "get leftovers" because it's quicker and more random -- I'll sometimes use the open and pick a specific item if I have a lot of leftovers and want my Sims to take the oldest item that's not spoiled.
