(22nd November 2021) No changes needed. Compatible with patch and below (If I missed any please let me know)

This mod removes the floating Icons that appear above sims heads in game.
I decided to make this because I don't like all the clutter that we have on screen when trying to play.

This does not alter the plumbob or thought/speech bubbles.
Made with game version, Compatible with game version
