Please describe the patch or change you made. Custom pronouns udpate

When moving from the Ultra Speed button to paused, sims keep moving slowly for 2-3 seconds after the game has paused. Doesn't appear to cause any other issues but looks creepy and spooked me a bit when I noticed it. I am playing in the newest update with the pronouns.

@Isladon Sounds like a bit of a lag issue.

What platform are you playing on ? Do you have other lag issues ?

@Trevor_Gasoline I merged your post with another thread on this. Do they stop moving if you keep the game paused longer like for OP ?

 

@Isladon 

 

 

Could you please edit your post and add the following info to your post.

 

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:
Which language are you playing the game in? 
How often does the bug occur? 
What is your current game version number? 
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? 
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 
What happens when the bug occurs? 
What do you expect to see? 
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods?
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? 

 

The bug template is currently broken but it helps if you answer the questions anyways.

I noticed this issue after the latest patch too. It looks incredibly creepy! I thought that they reminded me of those creepy ventriloquist puppets when they did it.

 

I'm on PC/English.

 

I noticed it when watching my sims having a conversation. I think it was initially ultra speed but when I slowed it down to take another look at it, it happened on normal speed too. I tried it several times at different speeds, it happened every time.

 

I have all packs except for Wedding Stories, no kits except for Country Kitchen.


Only noticed this happening after the patch and had my mods out.

 

I had actually captured video of it for bug reporting purposes, but noticed I had my mic on and my cat is meowing loudly in the background, so I'll have to capture it again when it happens and make sure the mic is off next time.
