[FIXED] Excessive and overlapping thought bubbles

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Play a household which have at least 1 cat. 2. Go to World menu. 3. Switch to other played household.
What happens when the bug occurs? 1. Play a household which have at least 1 cat. 2. Go to World menu. 3. Switch to other played household. What happens when the bug occurs? My played household's sims AND nearby nonplayed sims are wishing about a "white pillow". This popup happens often(80%+), and sometimes it duplicate with "talking". I switched to other played household, now have this effect. Of course, all sims wishing this don't need sleeping(energy level: green). (I'm not talking about wishicon(bottom-left).) Not talking: ( White Pillow Icon )Ooo [Sim] While Talking: ( Icon I can't see because it overlayed by Pillow)=>[Sim] + ( White Pillow Icon )Ooo [Sim]
What do you expect to see? What is causing this? I tried to fix these sims("resetsim First Last", "sims.remove_all_buffs", restart the game) but nothing changed. The cat's broadcast system might have a bug or something.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Last patch

  • We fixed an issue where thought bubbles would overlap and never go away. It should be fixed now, at least, that is our thought. Bubble. Get it.

Fixed in Patch 1.46.18

You get a moodlet for that (buff = moodlet) a whim or a speech bubble about it ?

Could you post a picture (you can attach that directly to your post) ?

I have been getting this too, except my excessive thought bubble is the red sports car and not a pillow. But my Sims will seriously think about this car constantly, it even overlaps other things like speech bubbles. There is a cat on the affected lot, but I don't know if the issue is related to cats or not.

I have this problem but it comes and goes - the thought bubble that gets excessive changes too - I have had the pillow, the red sports car, a money sign, etc. When it happens - it overlays on top of their real thought. Even townies will get the thought bubble. It seems one sim will have a thought and it gets stuck or something and overlays other sims thoughts. Like I think the pillow one started when one of my sims first started playing a violin and the sims around got the pillow thought because the sim was playing badly and they wanted to cover their ears with a pillow - that is normal, but then it starts popping up for all the sims on top of their other real thoughts for a long period after. I am playing a challenge so I do rotate to different households and all of them have at least one cat. It does not always happen - sometimes it goes away. I think when I play for a long period is when it happens the most. I tried to attach the save but it says unsupported extension type and I know nothing about Google drive or One drive - sorry.

I had this too, but the thought bubble was a chess piece, and I don't have any cats in my household

OK - I think I figured out how to do it using one drive and sent my saved game in a private message to SimQA_Icarus

Not sure I did it right though since never did this before.
