So excited! Do we have a release date yet?
Trip is right.  They've usually are released the first Thursday/Friday.  I will be keeping an eye out for it, though someone may beat me to the punch :)

Anyways, SimGuruCopeland said these items will be sold as a set, not a venue.  However, SimGuruCopeland did tweet the lot would be available if one wishes it (though they would still have to buy the items in the set):

Who wants this gorgeous lot (by the crazy talented SimGuruKitty) uploaded to the exchange on Old Mill released day?

Yes! I won't have to wait until I can buy Prism Art Studio to get L-shaped stairs! So we might get this as soon as tomorrow? Oh wow, I am going to have a hard time being patient! This combined with Bohemian Garden and Deliciously Indulgent Bakery are making my Simming experience.

*grins*  In the waning days of Sims 3, most of the new sets have been released during the first week of the new month.  Still, don't count on it until it is out.

Thanks again Bri for keeping us in the loop ;D
You're welcome.

And yet another new picture:

Cornstalks as outdoor décor (forum request) along with 2 other new items from the Old Mill set!


Oh, and in case someone is curious, Corn will be a new harvestable available in this set, as will Cucumbers (SimGuruCopeland confirmed this...though there won't be other harvestables).

It's Thursday in Oz and it's not available so far at 10:30 AM.  Usually it's in the store by 10:00 AM so not today folks.  :(

Well, SimGuruTaterTot had this to say on the thread on the official forums:

Quote
Check back tomorrow to get the set! We'll also be throwing the Lot up on the Exchange, so you can download that tomorrow as well!

They seem to have every intention of releasing the set this Thursday (tomorrow for me).

They're probably releasing it all at the same time. So tomorrow for everyone, but only Thursday here.

Brunch at the Old Mill Release
« Reply #32 on: July 03, 2014, 01:20:54 PM »
The moment many of you have been waiting for, the July set is now released:

Normally 1700 SimPoints, it is currently on sale for 1450 SimPoints until July 7, 2014.



Quote
Harken back to a rustic era of cozy charm with the Brunch at the Old Mill set. Finish working the fields by your mill house just in time for a second breakfast of tea and scones.

It can be found here:
Brunch at the Old Mill

It comes with 3 pieces of Premium content detailed below.  Note the content isn't available for individual sale yet:

Quote
Well look what time it is. Time to break out the doily and pour a spot of tea! How delightful that you’re here to join us. We should sit and chat for a spell.
Old Miller Tea Time Set
Gameplay:
• Socialize with friends and family over a cup of tea!


Quote
Do you have more harvestables than you know what to do with? Want to squirrel away some for those long winter months? Then Grandma’s Canning Station is just the thing for you! Turn your favorite harvestables into a variety of Jams or just can them for later use! Let’s jam!
Grandma's Canning Station
Gameplay:
• Save your best harvestables so that they will never spoil!
• Opening the harvestable puts the harvestable back in your inventory at the same quality level
• Make a myriad of jams and secret recipes like ketchup!
• Use your jam on scones or toast!
• Comes with new harvestables, Cucumber and Corn!


Quote
The Wheel on the Mill Goes Round and Round...
Old Mill Water Wheel
Gameplay:
• Catch fish in this unique location.


As the above is a set, there is no Venue for them, although SimGuruKitty did make two lots to take advantage of them, and uploaded them to the exchange:
The first is the Old Mill lot itself:
The Old Mill

The second is what appears to be a remake of another lot in Sunset Valley (The above lot mentions Stoney Falls):
Stoney Falls Near the Old Mill

Considering that harvestables don't spoil anyways, that aspect of the canning station is redunant, but still, scones and jam. :D

Just bought the set and I hope to play with it soon!

Sorry it took so long, Teacup Chihuahua.  A bit rushed for a writing assignment.  However, here are the links for the lots.  Both are made by SimGuruKitty, so this is about as official as it will get.

Thank you so much Br. You really are awesome at finding and sharing all things Sims with us.

I wonder if the jam/preserves can be sold in the consignment store?  I asked over on the official forum.  If I don't get an answer over there, I guess I'll have to try it out myself tomorrow.

I just tried selling jams and preserves through consignment and it doesn't work. It's too bad.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed that the tea set comes complete with table.  You can't put the tea set on your Sims regular dining table. 

Also has anyone figured out where to put the jams, preserves and ketchup because they won't go in the fridge?

I suspected as much when I saw the new table in the picture but not listed as an item. Ah well.

They could be like milk from the cow set. It just stays in your inventory until you drink it or turn it into cheese. It can't be removed.

If you have the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery, you can put them on the bakery shelves.

You can put them in chests and on the floor, that's all I've found so far.

On the official EA store forums, there's a thread for pictures of the Brunch at the Old Mill set, and a few people have found that some Custom Content shelving works fine for storing jams and preserves.

Here's a link to the official forum, there's links to the shelves that hold the jam there if you want to go the CC route.

Thanks MissTrips.  I got my Sim to have some jam on scones and the in-game scone look like pizza!  The option to have ketchup on scones sounds gross!  :o

For people who may have bought this Set, there was a bug in the Cucumbers in the Non-English version.  Maxis has it fixed, and it should be able to run properly if you download/install the set again.  It may be wise to uninstall it first, though.

So, there is no Old Mill building without it being on one of the lots the gurus created?  Too bad they made the one lot a weird size.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

It's because they made it for that lot by the waterfall on top of the mountain in SV.  It goes perfectly there.
