[NEEDS SAVES] Message for investing money for a Sim not in household

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? [1]. Create many sim with a "Shrewd" trait. Create a household, play it, get a trait. Repeat. [2]. Mark all of them "unplayed", except your played household. [3]. Play with your played household for a week or long.
What happens when the bug occurs? After week passed, if there are unplayed household sim loaded in your lot(community,house,etc), you got this notification: "INTEREST EARNED (unplayed household sim name) earned $XYZ from investing this week". And my played household didn't get this notification(no investment money).
What do you expect to see? Don't show UNPLAYED household (I mean, other than current household I'm controlling)'s interest notification because I don't care. Unplayed sim = I don't play = don't care. Instead, this "shrewd" system should ONLY think about "current playing household", and give us appropriate money.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Filled in form properly

Hello, I think I have a similar experience. In my case, the sim who earned the interest was a grandmother of my sim. She’s already left my household, living with another family, but she came to my sim’s house for her grandchild’s birthday party. While her temporary stay, I got this notification. Since she used to be one of my actively playing sims, I knew her aspiration was Fabulously Wealthy and she got Shrewd trait as its reward when she completed it. I felt strange because she was no longer a member of my household but just a guest of party.

 

So, I thought Gordon and Lindsey could be NPC like party guest, maid, butler, mailman and so on. I just guess. I’m not sure anybody else on the streets near your lot could be included but if your house is big enough, somebody could have been there while the notification. I mean, somebody you were not aware.

 

FYI, I’ve never installed any unofficial contents like MOD or CC.
