Hi @DopeySims

 

this is not a bug.


They changed this so you can now turn them on and off in your options.

 

They are off by default

Thoughts bubbles are disappeared

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.49.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just playing
What happens when the bug occurs? The thoughts/goals bubbles don't appear anymore and the shadows don't work properly either. I'm not sure if it's related but the issue started to happen after the last update. I tried to uninstall/reinstall the game but it didn't work, the thoughts bubbles still not appear. Same for the shadows that still appear strange.
What do you expect to see? The thoughts/goals bubbles that give me a reward when doing the right action suggested by them. The shadows that have a proper shape.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

After the last update, the thoughts bubbles are completely gone. Also the shadows have not the proper shape and act oddly. I uninstall/reinstall the game, I tried to backup my savings and restart the game with no other previously game files, but these bugs still occur Frown

Hi @Irielyssa

 

merged your post with existing thread.

 

This is by design. You can now turn them on and off in your options.

 

As for shadows, check this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/READ-FIRST-Compiled-List-of-Build-Buy-Issues/td-p/6448814/jump... and if you don't find your issue, create a new thread.

 

Thanks

Thank you for your answer. I didn't know that the "thoughts bubbles" were called whims, so I hadn't found similar threads. Sorry sorry
