Scenario Tips and Troubleshooting
Can’t find the recipe for BBQ Ribs Plate
The recipe for BBQ Ribs Plate appears on the Grill menu after you hit Cooking level 7. Unless you have the “Simple Living” lot challenge (see next).
Recipe for BBQ Ribs and Fried Fish Plates not showing up on the Grill menu
If you have the “Simple Living” lot trait enabled, these recipes will not be available. You will not be able to complete this Scenario unless you disable the “Simple Living” lot challenge.
I made an Excellent quality Fried Fish Plates, but it isn’t counting towards my Scenario
Only the “Party Size” fish plate (serves 8) counts towards the Scenario. The smaller servings don’t work.
I hosted a Cook Out but it didn’t count towards my Scenario
When setting up the Cook Out event, you have to specify this is a “goaled event.” You only need to complete the main goal (which is to host the Cook Out). Don’t worry about the other goals.
Don’t end the event early. Let the timer run out on its own. When the event ends, you get credit for the Scenario.
