Odd gnome behavior
« on: June 01, 2011, 04:23:20 PM »
Has anyone else noticed odd Gnome behavior of their household gnomes?  My Sultan Sam has completely disappeared since install.  He's no longer a member of my household.  All of the others randomly move around but every night they gather in a circle randomly in the yard.

I guess gnomes just want to have fun too, lol.  Sorry, couldn't resist.  I haven't played a game yet with my gnomes, but it is cute though.  Maybe they are having a meeting to see what mischief they can get into next. :)

Yeah I think they sort of interact with each other now....

SPOILER WARNING

I read that if you put 2 gnomes together at a wedding they have a baby

I thought that I read somewhere that you can have gnome families so maybe that is what is happening?? I haven't gotten to play yet so I don't know beside I don't do much with gnomes!

I usually sell mine anyways, so I don't know what they do! That is very weird I had no idea that they could move around!

I normally either sell them or keep them in a treasure chest. Time for them to move out and explore the world after installing Generations. I wonder what they will do in my game.

I got a pic of my gnome doing doing the 'oh what a feeling' (Toyota) jump. I don't normally place them either, but I figured I'd start a gnome collection this time around.

I've noticed that they gather together a lot more now. I even caught them gathered together, looking attentively, when one of my Sims gave a spontaneous "tell ghost story" performance.

I also have four little gnome headstones in the yard now.

Lol I thought it looked like they were having a dance competition for some reason.  :D It's funny my gnomes seem to spawn away from each other most of the time.

I didn'r know they interacted together. I got annoyed with them turning on the stereo or TV when my sim was trying to sleep. Maybe I'll keep the next few and see.

I like the teenage goth gnomes, black fingernails, pouty look and always in trouble.  I also have four gnome headstones.  They also move altogether now, but every once in a while, a lone gnome will poof like usual to another location.  You can find them everywhere and actually I find it quite amusing, sort of like playing hide and seek, lol.

I never had any gnomes in my house until lately, so I didn't know this habit to gather was new...
Now I only keep two laundry gnomes, as I find those large group formations a bit annoying, and I noticed they stay alone if there's only a couple of them...  :D

Anyone else noticed a change in the selling price of the basic magic gnome? Can't remember the name, but I mean the one you get from fishing.
I'm sure it was about 100 simoleons or less before Generations, but now it's 1000 or more. This is why I always just sold them right away when my sim fished them, I thought they were the same gnome than the one you get from Buy Mode.

The gnomes in my game have always been $1000.00, whether it was from fishing or gem collecting.  Now, I have gotten a couple of the gnome statues and they are not that expensive and they don't do anything. :)

The fishing gnome? That's odd, because I've had two angler sims who both fished all their life. First was before the patch and he always got cheap gnomes, and not too often. My current sim had about 5-10 gnomes in her invertory (still a YA) and not a single cheap one. I think the item image was the same because it was only the price that caught my attention. So I guess the first fisher got only statues and now I only get magical ones for some reason... I wonder if it's just chance.
Well, one more new thing for me! I love this game, there's so much detail in it. ;)

It is not too often I got gnomes while fishing, but I have gotten a few.  I have gotten more gnomes in the mail instead of my gems than while fishing.  I really think the new behavior of the gnomes now is really cute and find myself trying to find them when they vanish, lol.  They have a few more positions too, which I think are cute. :)

Gnomes apparently grow old now.  I know that they die because I have had a few markers on my sim's land even though my sim family didn't own any.   I also believe the vampire gnome will turn the teddy bear to another vampire gnome though I haven't tested that myself.  I don't have any gnomes this game but I have had a lot in the past.

Yes, the cheap gnomes are just statues.  They don't do anything.

I never knew the gnomes could move until I was reading about how they could marry with Generations. I used buydebug just to get a bunch of them and watch them move around my yard ^_^ I haven't gotten any babies yet, but I'm going to try next time I play.

I have a few questions: Do the new gnomes interaction apply to new gnomes caught/acquired in Generations? Or do the interactions apply to our old gnomes (pre-generations) game?  Next, how do you marry gnomes? How does one know if a gnome is male or female (in order to marry them off) all I have are male gnomes. I got most of my gnomes by fishing, and one by doing the laundry, I also picked one up in France near the museum, I haven't gotten one by mail. Thanks! :)

I don't know how they marry but maybe they arrange it themselves.  :D I haven't bothered about them much for a while.  I would guess the new interactions came with the patch rather than Generations but if you are asking about them moving about, they have done that since the base game.  You used to have to give them a bit of a kick back then to stir them into life. ;D

MoMoll, I have found them to be a nuisance for sure.  They turn on the TV and usually break it.  I haven't noticed them blocking the fridge but I guess they could do that.  You can move them though.

Having gnomes break the tv could be  a good thing if you are trying to super-max the handiness skill :)
