Follow the big red "mult part download" info in files on how to extract!
If you need help, make sure to give details, like the error name. You can also follow the "Frequent Questions" below for common errors.

Updates:
Note: This mod will always be compatible with all game versions.
unless that for some reason they change all foods ID
(which probably will never happen)



Description:
This mod override all food textures with one 4 times bigger (upscaled), keeping the original maxis match look, so you can get closer without it looking like an absolute mess. (mostly, some are so messed that it's hard to make it good)

It's a Work in Progress! It will take a long time to finish since to do base game + 4 dlcs took over 3 months. Feel free to warn me about bugs and issues, like foods using wrong textures and pixelated shines.

Separated version note: I'm aware of the colossal amount of files that it have and it can cause more lag issues than bigger mods, so I ask you, after deleting what you aren't going to use, you SHOULD merge all files with Sims 4 Studio, otherwise it can cause very slow loading and even fps drops. (Note that file amount can be a lot 'laggier' than file heaviness)
You don't need the separated version if you don't have all dlcs, it's just ignored by the game and don't make any difference!


Progress:
Base game: Done. (Probably)
Journey to Batuu: Done.
Get Together: Done.
Get to Work: Done.
Cats and Dogs: Done.
Get Famous: Done.
Spa Day: Done.
Seasons: Done.
Snowy Escapade: Done.
Fitness: Done.
My First Pet: Done.
Vintage: Done.
Paranormal: Done.

City Living: 2% Done.
Outdoor Retreat: 1% Done.
Other DLCS: Not Started.

Notes: Base game have content from other DLCs (for some reason) that make the actual DLCs progress unknown.
Some models, like the Ambrosia, has been changed to fix some issues, so it don't only change textures.
Some images was made on Sims4Studio preview just for textures comparison (because in game screenshots are really difficult to do), so ignore glitches like buggy transparency, lack of depth and shine effects for this ones.


Performance:
If you have a weak PC, this probably isn't a mod for you.
The game isn't going to have more than 20 foods in the lot since it's the size limit for sims (considering that they are all eating) but 4x textures still make it 16 times heavier.
Some things like onions that your sim cut in the table reflect in the gardening plants which can make the garden more heavier too.


Compatibility:
-The merged version can't be used with anything that change the food texture or model.
-The separated version just need that specific food files to be deleted.

- Both versions are fully compatible with any price changes and small details mod (If they don't touch the model or texture)

Frequent Questions:
I'll put some stuff I hear frequently here.

Oh, thanks! It looks odd, the shine is also pixealed for some reason and yet, took 30 minutes each to clean... but looks kinda fine when distant (they are far in the print because of this)
Hope to not find other of those so soon

I download merged 2 and extracted then get the error so I download separated 3, then I noticed 2 packages get errors names Drink 24 & Ikayaki. Report this and wonder if they are related.

I always test redownloading and testing after posting but tried again, it's all working as it should, extracted both fine and seems to be 100% working in the game too

Quick note, now technically I can upload big files and don't rely in a multi-part .rar, but it still call it too large and isn't allowing me to update. The updated version still can be found in other place though.

this mod is really amazing, I was worried that it might conflict with 2 mods I have that override the cutting board and the bread plates but it didn't. I also wanted to ask if you converted the off the grid food and other secret recipes in the game ?

The version on this site is kinda old (search on google for the most recent version) but yes, I remember upscaling a frog soup and stuff like this.
If it's on base game, it's upscalled. If it's in a pack saying "done" in progress, it's all upscaled.

Anyway, a simple way to make compatibility is putting this mod in the mods folder and putting the mod you want to override this one inside any folder inside the mods folder. (Mods inside folders have "priority" over mods outside folders)
