Food Delivery Fix

Allows the Zoomers Food Delivery service to complete a delivery, and also fixes an issue that prevents interacting with Pizza Deliverers after a pizza delivery.


After ordering a Zoomers Food Delivery, the delivery person will arrive and ring the doorbell, but they won’t be holding a bag of food and after choosing to accept the delivery, they get stuck in a state where they have no interactions. A similar thing happens to a pizza delivery person after taking the ordered pizza.

There seems to be an issue with the animation for holding the Zoomers Food Bag. It could possibly be using an animation that only exists if you have Cottage Living expansion pack installed. You can read more about this bug on EA Answers HQ: No food is being delivered.

For the pizza deliverer, an incorrect buff is being applied that suppresses interactions while they are meant to be waiting for a tip. You can read more about this bug on EA Answers HQ: Pizza delivery person becomes unclickable after delivery.

This mod switches out the animation for a Zoomers Food Delivery to something that exists in the base game. It looks a little weird, but at least it makes the delivery work. It also removes the interaction suppression buff from the pizza deliverer, so that you can give them a tip or greet them as normal.


  • This mod is for people who own the base game on PC/Mac with update (July 2021) or later installed.
  • The mod rewrites the tuning files for the Zoomers Delivery Bag object and the pizza deliverer’s “waiting for a tip” role state. If you have any other mods that affect the same tuning files, they may clash with this mod.

    1. You don’t need it for Zoomers to work if you have Cottage Living. If you want the pizza deliverer to be tippable though, you can use the mod, or choose not to use the mod and the pizza deliverer will leave eventually on their own.

  1. I would like to say thanks but as I have been seeing from multiple players, they have the pack and Zoomers Delivery is still not working. So it doesn’t matter if you have the pack or not, it needs to be fixed! This new service should be available whether you have the pack or not which the sims team did not say in their live stream, nor did I hear from Youtubers who report sims news say that you need the pack.

    1. Of course it needs to be fixed. The patch notes for the July patch clearly show that Zoomers food delivery service is a new base game feature that shouldn’t need any other packs installed to work. They just seem to have made a mistake by making it rely on a component from Cottage Living and didn’t test it with just base game only.

  2. In the sims live stream they did not say that you needed the pack, nor did any Youtubers who reports sims news say that. Plus, I have seen multiple simmers complain that they have the pack and its still not working. So whether you have the pack or not, its a glitch that needs to fixed.
