Introduction. In Dine Out it’s unfortunately not possible to hire your own Sims as employees but mcrudd at the official Sims forum has found a way to at least create your own and use those. Be aware that any Sims you play will immediately loose their job and you need to rehire them.
So you can technically go with foods for the menu that are skill level 2- 4 and put the chef on quickly, and most of their food will turn out acceptably. This can help you to turn a profit and simultaneously run a busier restaurant so long as you have a good layout.
First of all, it is possible for your Sim to live at a store or restaurant . You can place a bed, shower, and source of food on the same lot as the store. I usually have my Sims live upstairs, but you can put their living quarters anywhere on the lot.
You can own more than one restaurant , so you could start with a small diner and later sell it, only to build a bigger restaurant .
You can ‘t own / run a bar in The Sims 4 . You can get behind a bar and mix drinks, but you won’t make any money from it.
Re: the sims 4 dine out – buy restaurant option not available. @ervetia Please power down your console completely, unplug it, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in and power it on. Your pack should register correctly on your system after a restart.
Players can own restaurants !
For a Game Pack, The Sims 4 Dine Out has a quality to it that could easily be mistook for an Expansion Pack. The wait for Dine Out has certainly been worth it ! I love the way that taking my Sims out for meals works and I love the challenge presented by running a restaurant.
You can elect to take over one of the three pre-built lots for sale there, which are expensive but established businesses that you can manage. Most players will prefer to make their own from scratch on an empty lot. To do this, use your Sim’s phone and go to the Career/Household tab, then select Buy a Retail Store.
While you cannot generally establish a residence there, you can apply for permission for Above Non-Residential Ground Floor or Live -Work residence. There are a few Industrial zones where a restaurant might be allowed and such a residence might be allowed (“bio-science campus”).
TG’s right, you can ‘t force Sims to live on a community lot . They’ll generally stay as long as they can fulfill their needs and they don’t have a priority script pop up (work, giving birth, etc.).
You need to do it in buy mode. Click on the bar in the middle on the i. There you can change it.
