@Skullah11 Could you post a picture of this ?

Did you delete your localthumbcache file after removing your mods ? Did you remove all mods/cc as in your mods folder is empty except resoruce.cfg ?

They don't appear when I take a screenshot. I have completely uninstalled all games and deleted all mods and CC from my Mac as I don't really use them anyway and its still happening. 

 

You can see them moving in the animation that a Sim walks. It's very frustrating to have random floating thought bubbles going across my lot.

That’s the best I could manage to capture. They stay in for a few seconds then another one pops up somewhere else.

Tiny Thought Bubbles

While playing one of my saves I could see a bunch of tiny thought bubbles on the floors and walls. I looked and they were from all the sims walking around outside the apartment but I've never seen them before. I apologize if someone has already asked about this problem but I couldn't find anything, if anyone could help out I would be very grateful.

Thanks Standard smile
