Enjoy this lovely snapshot of my Sim enjoying some type of beverage in the hot tub. This also recently happened in the bathtub, but I didn't get a screenshot - and the hygiene wasn't even low so I don't know why that happened at all.

@itsmeemmap The new thread for excessive drinking can be found here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Excessive-Water-Juice-Drinking-Patch-1-58-63-Edition/m-p/84523...

Haven't personally see what you're describing. Is this their swim outfit at least or did they go in the tub in everyday wear ?

Happy Gaming

They will change clothes. And I forgot to note, they still still do the water animations! This is what made me aware of this whole thing because it can make it look like my Sim is drinking the water they are swimming/bathing in.

I mean, you can make your Sims do this on purpose because who wouldn't want to drink in the bath... but it's a bit weird that this happens a solid 85-90% of the time my Sims autonomously grab water😅

@itsmeemmap I've seen it as well, but not near as often. (just happened to my university student when I made him take a sleep replacement potion -- he took it up to the bathtub, undressed and got into the tub, drank and got out. Silly sim. XD

I've seen this a lot in my game and it's been going on for a long time.  Well before the last patch and DU and before the thirst thing.  I see it most happening with bathtubs though but have seen it happen with the hot tub.   Also with pools, but in that case they don't get in, just sit on the edge and dip their feet in.  It drives me nuts at times because on one lot, the sim will go up two floors to a bathtub after getting a drink off the bar on the basement rec room bypassing the 1st floor bathroom with a tub and numerous places to sit.
