    I think it is because the food gives more toward filling hunger. You do not need as much to fill your sim up? Maybe we should all max our cooking and make burgers.

    Shhhh...I think the $12 group meal from the silver fridge is an "undocumented feature":

    All food items reduced in price!
    <blockquote><hr>

    Home Cooked &amp; Buffet Meals

    * Reduced snacks to $1, light meals to $2, regular meals to $3
    and group meals to $24.
    * BBQ Group Meal Price (6 burgers) reduced from §20 to §12
    * Buffet Meal Costs: reduced ‘wholesale’ price per plate from $100 to $10

    Ummmm....haven't used buffets in...years actually, but that is the price range I remember. [​IMG]

    @ 100§ a plate (1200§ per table) *someone* would have mentioned the big gap between HC and buffet over the years. [​IMG]

    Shortly after the discovery of the $12 group meals in silver fridges were discovered it was posted on the blog. Nothing was ever comfirmed if this was a feature by design or a bug.

    The Buffet Meal costs are still too high and were also reported.

    Only time will tell if this is the design or a bug. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys for bringing this to our attention! I just duplicated it in TC3. The low-end fridges &amp; moderate fridges charge 12 simoleans per group meal, but the high-end one costs 24.

    Again, thanks guys!

    why does it cost $6 more for a group meal then 6 individuals?

    [/ QUOTE ]

    When the subject of meal costs came up in the pub one day, the devs asked us what needed to be changed and asked for suggestions. I created "Cost of Hunger" on the wiki to simplify and reduce food costs.

    I never understood why it was cheaper to cook a group meal with the old costs because it takes less time. The time saved by cooking a group meal should be something we pay for. Our lives have always revolved around how much time it takes to accomplish things. We gravitate towards the fastest way to skill, the fastest way to make money. If you want to spend extra time cooking individual meals then you should save money. It seems reasonable to me that if you want to save time you pay more.
