My man had sculpted a gnome and I put him downstairs. He was not happy I guess cause as soon as he finished a table, the gnome was sitting on it. It was quite funny!

My little sim has been sculpting his heart out, but this time, no gnomes.  I really miss having them around.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

I just had a thought! What if a Gnome was on a Sculpted table and you then sold the table?  :-X

It'd probably sell the gnome too. I had a phone on a table, sold the table and the phone went too.

For some reason I'm not getting any normal gnomes in my games anymore, unless I use the XL display, which doesn't count. Before I had WA or Ambitions my garden was full of them. Now I can't remember how I got them. Sending in gems and metals? I'm still doing plenty of that. What have I forgotten?

I never was able to receive a 'normal' gnome by mailing off gems or metals.  My simmies usually 'reeled' them in.  Maybe you should try 'fishing'?  ;)

In one game, my sim got two wooden ones and two metal ones and about every other time they mailed gems or metals off, they would get a gnome, so come to think about it, I have not gotten one in a long time either, wonder what is up with that.  I know it is all random, but if just like, quit.  You made me think about that one. :)

I must really have problems with my game then as I have never been able to receive them in the mail. 
But come to think of it, the family I play with all the time has not had a new gnome added since the patch and installation of Fast Lanes.   ???  And not to change the subject, but I have noticed that I am not getting multiple (additional) gems or metal back in the mail like I used to either.

It's true, I haven't been fishing as much as I used to, but I did recently have a sim who earned Perfect Aquarium, so you'd think he'd have gotten at least one gnome.

I've only recently learned that gems can decrease in value upon returning from a vacation, so I've been mailing in and cashing in my metals and gems while still in China. I have gotten several Chinese gnomes. But no normal gnomes when I send off gems from home. :(

Soon after my last post I received 2 normal gnomes in the mail with cut gems. I put them outside and haven't seen them since. It's strange that the Chinese, Egyptian, and Trog gnomes are all over the place but a search of the entire lot turns up no normal gnomes.

Remember my sculpted gnome? Well I just went to harvest my garden, and he was standing there holding a plumbbob!  ;D I started laughing, and it was too funny not to share!

My sculpting gnome has done that too! Now my inventing gnome, he's the creepy one. He ended up in the garden (where else?) in this pose like he was about to pounce on someone. I moved him back to the bench, and he's still in that pose. Makes it look like he thinks the inventing bench has mice and he's waiting to grab one.  ;D

Lol, I think some of what they do are hilarious then on the other hand sometimes they are downright annoying! Like the ones that turn my TV or radio on. First time it freaked me out! Now I either keep the TV's and radios in the family inventory or just keep the gnomes in a chest  ;D.

According to Sims wiki, there's at least two new gnomes that will appear in Late Night.


Some kind of Hip=Hop gnome,
And a vampire gnome, that's supposedly a female

Sorry the pictures are so terrible, it's the best I could find.

Thanks for the pictures, Simstar.  I wonder if the new gnomes will start turning up at the Consignment Store or if there will be some other way we'll get them.

Ha, ha! They look wonderful! ;D
Somehow I always had figured they would make a Hip-Hop gnome.

Hey I'm new to the forums, but I just wanted to add that I've gotten a vampire gnome. It's definantly female. She's got short black hair, a black top, white gloves, red skirt, purple wings, black fishnets and high heels, a little necklace, and pink/grey eyes.

Sorry I can't post a picture the computer my sims are on isn't hooked up to the Internet, and it's too late and I'm too tired to do anyhting about that right now.

Anyway, my sims weren't doing anything special to get her (the male sim in the household is aquainted with two vampires but I've never had them interact while I have had control of him) she just popped up in the kitchen. She's really cute, right now she's in a flying pose and kind of floating in mid air.

Happy Simming!

Edit: This may be a coincidence, but she moved outside at night the back inside when the sun came up.

I have just been playing my Immortal Dynasty and a Vampire Gnome turned up on my lot near my plants. Just appeared out of nowhere.

What towns are your vampire gnomes turning up in? Just Bridgeport?

My 2-star celebrity sim just got the hip-hop gnome sent to her as a present, the same way celebrities get given furniture occasionally.
