Notifications Disappearing too Fast

★★★★ Novice

I just started playing Sims 4 today after installing the new update, and I've noticed that my notifications are disappearing way too fast. I don't even get time to read them before they're gone. I have to open up the notification panel to read them, and it's really disrupting my game. Any ideas as to a solution?

 

Thanks!

Re: Notifications Disappearing too Fast

I don't seem to have this issue, do you have any mods or CC that might be causing this issue? Could you test and see how the game works without them?

Re: Notifications Disappearing too Fast

Could it be your wall is full with notifications? Have you tried clearing it? 
If that doesn't help, could you test and see if a new game also has that issue?

I cleared all of my notifications, but still had the problem. I also started a new game, and it didn't help.

Re: Notifications Disappearing too Fast

Do you think you can take a short video of the issue? You should be able to with the in game video options. 

If you could make a new bug report in the bug forum and attach that video (you might need to upload it to YouTube).

I don't think a video would help because the notifications have stopped popping up. I have to go to the panel to view them. But I can create a new thread about the issue.
