GLITCH: 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

  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. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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?
