What do you expect to see? Not this.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I updated to v188.8.131.520 on June 3.
I have not tried to remove my mods and observe the loading screen since it could take a while to see this new behavior, but I suspect that my mods aren't causing this. A minor issue, but I thought I should report it.

I thought Maxis was having a laugh when I first saw "I don't want free earbuds" on the loading screen, but seeing just the word "No" made me think it was a mistake. Maybe my sense of humor is lacking.
i was playing the sims last night. when i went to travel with my household, the tip on the loading screen just said "ok". is this new, or could my game be bugging out on me?
First things first: This has nothing to do with Strangerville. I am familiar with the creepy loading screen texts that came with it.
The "problem" I'm having is that the texts in loading screens are sometimes very weird and random. This started about a month ago. I have no mods or custom content. I own almost every pack and the game is up to date. Otherwise the game works as it should. But about half of the loading screen texts I get are not what I think they're supposed to be? I mean I'm used to the gameplay tips and quirky comments, but recently I've started getting very out of the ordinary texts. Just a few examples:
Yesterday as I loaded up the game it just said "Paikat hajalle" (my game is in finnish), which means like "Wreck everything up." A couple of days ago the screen said "I don't want to wear ear buds." ("En halua käyttää nappikuulokkeita" in finnish). And sometimes it just says "OK."
Sooo... Is this something that's supposed to happen? I got Strangerville when it released and like I said, I know with it came a lot of weird messages, but the ones I mentioned started appearing just a couple of weeks ago. This doesn't bother me per se, I just find it weird.
