To the wonderful Jugginator (or alternatively anyone else reading this):
Dear, darling Jugginator, I once again have the sad duty to inform you of a new bug. All three food piles (small, med, large) can be looted for food magazines even if the player has maxed the skill already and has Master Chef at a level above zero.
Game Version: A21 b317
OS/Version: Windows 10
Game mode: SP
Did you wipe old saves? Yes
Did you start a new game? Yes
Did you validate your files? No
Are you using any mods? No
EAC on or off? On
When a player has completed the food magazine skill and has at least one skill point in Master Chef, they still get food magazines from the food pile containers. In a more technical level I believe this to be caused by the 'count="all" ' parameter that ignores the 'LootProb="0" ' value the player has for these magazines. The magazine interestingly does have a probability template but no forced probability in the loot groups, which means it's always picked. Perhaps a 'force_prob="true" ' was forgotten from that line? Other containers that don't have the 'count="all" ' parameter function correctly with maxed food skill (notably the Shamway crate).
Much love and adoration!
Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:
1) Get 100 food skill and at least one level in Master Chef.
2) Open a few food piles (small, medium or large).
Actual result: Get food skill magazines.
Expected result: Don't get any food skill magazines.
