Unlock the amazing treehouse in the Inner Child’s Play Quest (no longer available) returning on the 6th January for 7 days

What else?

  • There is a new tab in the home store- Chimneys and Fireplaces:

  • You will also see the bay windows tab if you complete the Christmas Quest in the time limit to unlock them:

  • There are new time limited prizes when you complete the 9 day pregnancy event in the time limit and earn the baby bonus between the 25th December- 5th January

If you start the 9 day pregnancy event anytime during the time frame you have the chance of earning the maternity items in that pack if you complete the event in the time limit, for example if you start a pregnancy event on the 4th January and complete in the time limit you will earn the items above

You need to have completed the first pregnancy event in the A Bump-y Ride Quest before you can earn the maternity prizes

  • You will also be able to get double rewards from the paperboy between the 12th December- 6th January

GLITCHES:

  • Coffee machines/ kettles now refill the hunger need rather than energy- this is a glitch and should be fixed in the next update at the latest

If you are trying to complete a weekly task that requires the coffee machine you may find it doesn’t complete, you can either skip the task with 10LP or personally I would wait until they have fixed the coffee machine issue above as it should fix this too

  • The event button in the corner of the screen won’t expand- the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix. If you cannot access the workplaces tab at a profession workplace due to this but have workstations you can upgrade you can click on these arrows to get to the workplaces tab, if not you might just need to wait until the Christmas quest is over before you can access the workplace tab:

  1. Happy Holidays! And Thanks for another great update summary! Feels like more rerun events than the last holiday update but I’m happy for chimneys and bay windows.

    Am I supposed to be able to access the birthday gift on my lawn yet? It has not appeared and I remember some people had problems last year. And there was a typo on the official site that referred to the bday gift starting on “Friday 3rd December”, so it is confusing.

    • You’re welcome! I was told that it can be claimed from the release of the update but as their birthday isn’t until the 15th it might be that it will only be available to actually claim a few days before so maybe it should have said Friday 13th December, not the 3rd!

  2. There’s a gift box at the entrance of my lot, but it won’t open. Any idea why or how to resolve it?

    • Can you find the gift box at a different house? You may want to try and open it there, also it might help to have a sim standing right next to the box before you click on it to open it.

  3. Strange, but since this update, using a coffee machine, not only has a different animation sequence, where they sit down to drink it (which is fine), but it counts toward hunger, Instead of sleep!

  4. Since my update my sims can’t use their coffee makers for sleep! They are now for food instead. Why?! 😬

  5. Anyone else got issues with the coffee machines since this update came? All the options take same amount of time and don’t actually restore the sims energy. Also the character now takes the coffee and sits down to drink it so time taken is usually now a lot longer than it should be…I’ve also been having trouble with the showers, time taken this longer than it should be and it is showing Sim has finished the action but they have not. Didn’t get fixed in update as I had hoped…

    • The coffee machines/kettles are restoring the hunger need rather than the energy need, this is a known glitch which should be fixed by the next update. I haven’t heard of the shower one though but I will pass it on.

  6. This isn’t really related to the Christmas event itself, but for some reason my coffee makers and teapots no long give my sims energy, they satisfy their hunger needs. Does anyone else have this problem?

  7. Coffee machine – also, there’s a weekly task for a fancy coffee but it’s not registering. (and I don’t want to skip task for 10 LPs)
    Love this site, thanks for your hard work.

  8. I love your website! Thank you. I am having a problem with the button on the three professional work places. On Friday December 13 it stopped working. I can not spin for resources or see any of the three screens. I contacted firemonkeys, but have not heard back. I am using android. I want to see if anyone else is having this problem. Keep up the good work.

    • You’re welcome! It seems there is a glitch where some players can’t expand the button, the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix but until then if you still have workstations to upgrade you should be able to click on the upgrade arrows to access the workplaces tab that usually appears in the corner, if not you might just need to wait until the Christmas quest is over before you can access the workplace tab.

  9. Thanks for your work and your patience for the people who complaining for the same things. I have a bug in my professional workplaces. I can’t open the storage, so I can’t buy or change my resources to win the baby reindeer at the current marketplace event. I tried to contact the Firemonkeys, but they submit page doesn’t change, and there isn’t any message that they received the message, so I tought to write this posta, maybe others are in the same shoes than me. Happy Holidays!

    • The makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix but until then if you still have workstations to upgrade you should be able to click on the upgrade arrows to access the workplaces tab that usually appears in the corner, if not you might just need to wait until the Christmas quest is over before you can access the workplace tab unfortunately, sorry I couldn’t be more help.

  10. Happy new year! I was wondering if anyone is having problems with the lake house? As of January 2 when I go to the lake house, it freezes and I have to reboot my tablet. I will contact firemonkeys, however I would like to know if this is another glitch happening to anyone else. Thank You

    • Happy New Year! It might be that the house is using up too much memory so your device cannot cope and so it freezes or crashes, try clearing all background apps and restart your device, this might help a bit.
