The coat racks are functional now! You can use them the same as a dresser or wardrobe.

Good find!

After reading your post I also tried the wall hanging coat racks. They‘ve got the same options.

A little while ago I read on FB about new interactions of our sims when they’re not busy with tasks. So far I didn’t see those in my own town but in another town where the sims weren’t inspired.
They talked to other sims and to my visiting sim (the relationship bar moved up a bit).
They went to wall decorations to admire them.
So far it was nice.

Then I sent a sim to Another Simtown because those sims aren’t inspired and was pretty surprised.
The needs seem to drain much faster than before. The sims are crying, arguing, are rude and hit each other with a foot, they go to the fridge and hit it with a foot. :cry:
I wanted more interactions when sims aren’t occupied with tasks. But for sure not in this way.
