[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Sim gets additional quirks past the 4 limit

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Expansion Packs All Game Packs Movie Hangout Stuff, My First Pet Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play a celebrity with 5 stars, and 4 quirks, and trigger the conditions for a new quirk
What happens when the bug occurs? It will add an ADDITIONAL quirk, even though there should be 4 max.
What do you expect to see? Once the sim has 4 quirks, they shouldn't get more.
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? No

So basically my 5 star sims keep getting additional celebrity quirks, even though the max should be 4.

Since this isn't easily reproducible I will tag this as Needs Input to see if anyone else has this issue.


So far there are no me toos.

Happy Gaming

I clicked "Me Too" even though I'm not sure I'm seeing the same thing.


My Celebrities with 4 quirks enact behaviors that are associated with quirks they don't have. For example constantly playing with their phones, checking themselves in the mirror or getting the close to a celebrity buff. I don't know if this is a bug or just part of the fame/quirk system. Maybe Celebrity Sims are pushed preform these actions because that's how they get quirks. 


Bit annoying, though.

If it helps, I encountered this issue after using "Quirk B Gone" to get rid of the Stan quirk. I now have a 5th quirk slot that glows red when I open the fame info tab.
