Removed Fitness Stuff earbuds dialog options now appear as loading screen tips

★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living, Holiday Celebration Pack, Dine Out, Laundry Day, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Get Together, Movie Hangout Stuff, Parenthood, Cats & Dogs, Fitness Stuff, Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Observe the loading screen tips closely.
What happens when the bug occurs? The old Fitness Stuff earbuds dialog options now appear as game tips on loading screens. So far I have seen tips of "OK" and "I don't want free earbuds" below the spinning plumbob.
What do you expect to see? Not this. Wink
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 v1.63.133.1020 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.

@ProfessorTripp1 I feel this might be more of a cheeky side of the devs, some of that maxis Sims humor then a bug lol 😋

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. Thinking

On twitter sim guru nick said it was added by sim guru ruskki so it's not a bug.

I’ve seen these tips as well, but I don’t own the Fitness Stuff Pack

Weird text on loading screens

★ Novice

Hi!

 

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.
