Prefer to get food from the dining room.

"A dining room" is defined as "room with a table".

Colonists will get food from the nearest room with a table, before checking elsewhere.
This includes lower quality food and nutrient paste dispensers even if there is better elsewhere. The assumption is that you chose to put the food in that room to be eaten. So colonists will do that.

Food in hospital rooms will also be used for patients in that hospital, and the same for food in prisons for prisoners.

You'll probably want RimFridge for this to make sense.


Smarter Food Selection supported ; which is to say, it uses Room Food first if possible.

not 100% sure but I think if you use Pawn Rules and load Pawn Rules after this you will get the intended effect and it won't bypass the restrictions system which Pawn Rules takes over.

I've been using it them both for awhile and things have been fine.

This mod was around before food restrictions /shrug.

That'll go on the big list of things to do.

You probably know this already, but it seems the mod overrides food restrictions.
If you have a paste dispenser in a room with a table, colonists will eat paste even when paste is prohibited

Can you make this but for medicine please? I hate when my colonists decide it's better to travel 20 hours across the map to pick up some slightly better medicine instead of using the bandages that are right next to the patient !

Like sure if the patient is set to normal medicine and the only thing in the room is lower than herbal or the worse wounds call for better medicine (with Pharmacy) then go get some better meds, but if they've just got a ton of bleeding wounds and you have a pile of bandages next to you, use them!

it would be better if they check for a dining room instead of a table if thats an easy fix
