[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Quirk-B-Gone Removes Quirk Before Sim Drinks It

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Get to Work, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Dine Out, Vampires, Jungle Adventure, Spa Day, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Kids Room Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Celebrity Sim with a Quirk acquire the Quirk-B-Gone and place it somewhere the Sim can't immediately get to it, such as on a surface or in a fridge a distance away. Tell the Sim to use the Quirk-B-Gone to remove a quirk, and select the quirk you want to remove. Then before the Sim reaches and drinks the Quirk-B-Gone potion, cancel the action to drink it.
What happens when the bug occurs? The moment you choose the quirk to remove from the list, the quirk is removed, and the Sim queues the action to go drink the potion. By cancelling the action to drink it, after the quirk is removed, but before the Sim reaches and drinks the potion, a single Quirk-B-Gone can be used an infinite number of times.
What do you expect to see? The sims should drink the potion first, before the quirk is removed.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Get Famous, since it added Fame Quirks and the Quirk-B-Gone potion.

Unable to play video. Please try again later.
(view in My Videos)

So basically, using a Quirk-B-Gone removes the quirk instantly upon queuing up the action to drink the potion, instead of removing the quirk after the Sim actually drinks the potion.

It doesn't seem intended to be able to use this "quirk" of the mechanics to infinitely reuse the same potion for limitless quirk removal.

Does this only happen to the quirks drink or also with the draught drink on vampires ?

Do you mean the potions effect happening instantly upon choosing to drink the potion instead of happening after the Sim actually drinks the potion?

I'm not sure, as the Sim I'm playing as now hasn't been a Vampire before.

Yeah, basically asking if the vampire drink has the same effect.

Test both the drought of reconfiguration and the quirks begone and it seems only an issue on the quirks begone one.
