hi, have a problem with Gift Giving party, the game tells me that I do not have enough space for the accumulation of gifts ... the problem is that I do not know how to fix it I have to put some object in particular to ensure that the gifts come in the house?
answer me please = (

You need a big open space to have a gift giving party with seating for everyone who is invited. Then the game will give you a pile of presents that you can place in the middle of your seating area. Then you call everyone over to open presents and they all sit down in the chairs and go up one by one and open a gift.

Do the gifts just appear or do they go in your inventory for you to place them? Because I threw a gift-giving party but didn't see any gifts, and then the party was a flop. Must be like birthday parties where if no one ages up the party will be a bust and everyone gets a negative moodlet. No? Anyway, I'll try it again, my Winter is, like, set to forever anyways lol

you have to open the presents within two hours or it's not working. You do need open space for the presents.

The game should pop up and say that they are going to start you off with a pile of presents or something along those lines. Then a round circle rug with abunch of presents on it will appear somewhere in your house where there is enough space. From there you can move it to whereever you like in your house. But it just appears by itself.

Can anyone tell how big this space has to be ?..like..how many squares by how many squares ?
I got the same message that my house was not big enough..but now, this means, if i want my sims to enjoy giftgiving, i must rebuilt all my sim's houses ?..oh boy.
And chairs..? like, once the pile of gift shows up..you must buy and place chairs around it..what? :blink:

The gift pile is 2x2, off the top of my head. And if there are no chairs, Sims will sit on the floor :)

My sims don't sit on the floor to open gifts, the teenage daughter of the first family I threw the party with stomped around a bit complained of no seating then just walked away & went to do whatever. Do you have adequate seating in the livingroom for people? The party option takes that into account as well if I'm not mistaken, also while you may have room for the 2x2 present pile, the sims have to have room all around the pile to walk up grab a gift open it and walk away, as well as when they first get there they walk up to the pile and add more gifts to it. So there does need to be plenty of space for the presents as well as walking.

The sims don't need to have any seating at all. I had a sim give her first gift giving party tonight and she had no furniture in her house. The pile of presents appeared near the door and the sims sat or stood around it.

I had my sim throw this party just as a test to see how much room they really need but I overdid it and made her house one gigantic room with nothing else in it. :D

Do they actually get a gift in their inventory or is it just for show? Also do the sims coming give something from their inventory? For example if I know a sim has something in their inventory can I invite them to the party in hopes that they will give that item to my sim?

The gifts are random, I have found that they are somewhat based off of traits. I had a virtuoso sim who got like 2 guitars (she went up to open gifts 2x), and then her husband was a sim who had high logic skills, and he got 2 chess tables.

Rose-maman I would say that isn't really big enough.. Even though it's only 4 sims invited, add your 2 sims and thats 6 people who have to be able to gather around the pile of presents whether it is on the floor or in a chair. With all the other things in that room, I can see why the game won't allow it.
