    You get a green holiday gift ticket if you log in to TC1.

    The list of items to choose from includes a snow statue, nutcracker, icicles, a pot of eggnog, and a deed for a holiday tree. Don't have time to claim anything. Was just popping on to test something and saw the message about having a ticket.

    Me too. There are two sizes that's the smaller one. When you lock it down you can double click on it and it will move. I was hoping nuts would pop up in my backpack but they didn't lol.

    Very nice container, I chose a pegasus and only got half of it. Little creepy...
    :(

    The part I got, {front}, was very pretty.

    No just locked it down and double clicked it. I don't have a big one to test out. I would think if the little ones move the big ones should too.:confused:
     
  8. The one char I have on TC got the ticket but when I click on it to select an item a message appear that I had been given it but there was nothing in my bag. It had vanished, moving everything in my pack and logging out did not fix it, what ever was given to me vanished.

    I only have 3 characters on TC1 that existed before the patch, so I couldn't try out everything. I threw together a few screen shots though. Wish I could try out the statue that looks like just the top of a pegasus. The boxes are pretty nifty too...new shapes and colors and the lining inside is also hued.

    The nutcracker is the large size. I thought maybe you could redeed it and switch sizes, but it seems to stay in that form once you click on the deed, unless I just didn't try the right thing to put it back in deed form. In the large version, it moves its jaw up and down when you click on it.

    Did you check in your bankbox? Perhaps your pack was too full.
     
  11. I did that to, was standing at the New Haven bank, off on the south side rear corner, when I opened my ticket

    My gift package was a small darker colored one. Check your pack carefully. similar to the valentine's basket.
     
  13. So far those are pretty sweet looking :)

    I wonder if you can use the statuette dye tub on the statues to change their color for other decor possibilities.
     
  15. I have, moved everything.

    What client are you guys using and have you tried logging out/in?

    It seems that you have to be 30 days old I think. Made a new char and got the message" She was to young to receive a gift" Maybe that has
    something to do with it.

    LOL. Glad to see I wasn't the only one more excited about the boxes. :D

    I love the gifts too but I was so happy to see new gift boxes.

    I've been getting "you are too young to receive a ticket" for about 2 weeks now on characters older than 30 days on Origin and Chessy. Go figure.

    I, too, only have one character on Test... and yeppers... when I made my pick, nothing appeared. No nifty box, no gift (I chose the eggnog to see if is different from the existing one), nada. I logged, relogged, nada. Checked bank, nada. Checked my house, nada.

    oh well.. is only test...

    Did you close your client and patch? I know that during a previous event, I couldn't see the turkeys on test because I wasn't fully patched. I hope that does the trick for you.

    I like them. Heck I feel like a kid, I like the boxes as much as the gifts inside them.
     
  33. I had not patch, and this morning after patching I found a box in the pack. Now I wonder if the gift tickets are going to be like the 12th anniv ones where anyone can use them to pick a gift or are they owner only.

    With all due respect and unending gratitude for gifts and awesome new containers...

    Why is there only half of the Pegasus? It is so pretty! How can I have a stable with half of it? I just want to know why this was done is all. It is like that dog food commercial...:(

    Please may we have the other half?

    Most pegasus ice/snow sculptures I've seen don't do the lower half, because with it rearing like that, the material doesn't have the strength for the large sculptures - it would snap off at the rear ankles from the unbalanced weight.

    Usually, the sculpture is surrounded by pure white snow, puffy cloth or cotton batting, ot look as you're seeing the top half rising through a cloud layer...

    Can anyone post pics of the different holiday boxes available this year? I've only been able to claim the exact same box each time (much love from the RNG). Thanks in advance.
