Thanks. Your reply gave me the impetus to go thru my livingroom inventory tab again (4th time) and I found my piano there.

The older coffeemachines and tea-sets got their different actions back and using them will fill the energy need again \o/

The animations are the same as for the new machines.
If there are no seats the sims will stand next to the machines like before.
If there are seats, they will prepare coffee/tea and then sit down for drinking.
If there are blocked seats, they will prepare coffe/tea but then they may refuse to go on.

I'm able to pick up items that are placed one square outside the grid. But the ones that sit two or more sqares away still sit there as if they were glued.
Windows and paintings hanging outside the house can be moved again.

It looks like those sweet pop-out bay windows on the preview of the lake house aren’t listed as an unlockable prize. I take it they’ll be a fixed feature, something we can’t move or purchase?

I had a look at Joy's early access video of the quest and took a screenshot :)

Oh, I hope so... just didn’t see it listed as one of the daily event prizes. I never like it when houses have immovable, unstorable unique features, and these bay windows are too cool to only ever see the light of day on one property. They’ll probably be super expensive though.

OMG. Up late for New Year's Eve and went into game to update pregnancy tasks before bed. Horrified to see the Arts & Crafts event started days before expected!

Thought I'd finish pregnancy and have a few days off before it started.

What were you thinking Fire Monkeys?

I'm still visiting family - we leave to go home later today. I went in my game yesterday to start the pregnancy event so I didn't have to deal with it while with family. I figured there might be a little overlap with when the Glam Mansion event started on the 8th. Then I saw your post and was like "what!?!? No!!!!!!!". I really don't see how I'll be able to do both. :cry:

So very horrified indeed! I'm literally gonna drop the Pregnancy event as soon as I run out of Sims!

And I happen to have many work days during this live event period too! Firemonkeys!

There's an update 5.50.1 in the App Store and a new article at ea.com: gLAm Mansion Blog The events I was missing in the first update article show up there.
  • NEW Glam Mansion Event: 9-day event starting Wednesday 1st January 2020
  • Player Favorite ‘Inner Childs Play’ Re-run: 7-day event that can be started at any time between Monday 9th January – Sunday 19th January
  • NEW SimChase Season 9 – Mansion Mania!: 7-day event starting Wednesday 15th January
I wonder if they have changed the lenght for SimChase Season 9 after they had released the early access versions.
