[FIXED] Stereo animation doesn't stop

[ Edited ]
★★ Pro

When you turn off the stereo, the visual music animation will continue. The circles around the loudspeakers have a new yellow color.

 

In my game (German edition, no mods/CC), I found a workaround: Turn the stereo off, go to build mode, delete the stereo and press the undo arrow. This will stop the animation.

 

However, other Simmers on the forum could not reproduce my workaround.

 

PS: One day later, my own workaround isn't working for me either.

  • Despite not having the new pack, your stereo will no longer look like it’s playing loud music – even when it’s off.


This has been fixed for everyone in Patch 1.130.105

new update new bug (stereo/radio visual bug)

★★★★★ Apprentice

So with the today update I found an annoying visual bug that even if my stereo/radio is turned off the visual still appear.

 

well not exactlythe same visual because if the radio is on the music notes are blue but right now when it's turned off the music notes are orange but still annoying

 

I don't use any mods/cc and even after buying another stereo still the same visual bug.

 

happened with all radio/stereo I just bought all to make sure

Same here. I'm using the English Edition with mods and other CC but it also happens without that. Except, as the person above stated, the workaround doesn't work in my game, it still happens after I either sell the stereo or select a different stereo (from wall stereo to floor stereo and vice-versa). Will test if the community lots do the same thing when I have minute or two.

 

It must be related to the May 25th 2017 patch because it never did it before then.

Re: [TO TEST] Stereo animation doesn't stop

Hello darkness my old friend.
It's weird how this is a new animation, not just the normal radio effects. I wonder if there's going to be some kind of "blast stereo" interaction for teen in the new GP or something.

Same Problem. The Workaround via Build Mode does not help.

 

Made a temporary Fix for that. Uploaded it on Mod the Sims. Same Username like here.
