[BY DESIGN] Relationship Panel Not Showing Family Relationships

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

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? 1.68.154.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs except Get to Work and Eco Lifestyle. Game packs owned: Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Vampires, Parenthood, Realm of Magic. Stuff packs owned: Perfect Patio Romantic Garden, Kids Room, Laundry Day
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In the relationship panels of all of my Sims, it doesn't show that they're related to each other. When playing as a Sim, hovering over their siblings and parents doesn't show their relationship. Married Sims do not appear married on the relationship panel. In the family tree and CAS, it does mark their relationships, however.
What happens when the bug occurs? Family relationships are not seen.
What do you expect to see? There should be a wedding ring icon for married Sims, which is not there. I have the Parenthood pack, and my Sim won't show the Parenthood specific relationships with their parent like when they used to.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I put it in a screenshot of my Sim's husband's relationship panel. It doesn't show that they're married. I did try to repair the game files and disabling mods, but it didn't work.

Hello.

I heard this was by design.  Relationship info is now intended to appear in the Sim Profile UI.

@crinrict Same thing with fresh saves, relationships now only appear in new Sim Profile.

Same problem.

I'm starting to wonder if its a change EA added. Really annoying if it is.

 

Being able to hover over a sim and see if they are related is useful, shouldn't have to click the new profile button.

@crinrict I thought the relationship panel was broken too, but, it it's not. You click on the sim in your sims' relationship panel & click on Open Sim Profile.

@Jaldeer yes but it's still unclear if the relationships were removed from the hover over on purpose or not.

I see what you mean.  Yes, when hovering over the sim in your sims' relationship it doesn't say.  Just their name, their age, if they are employed or not, & traits & when I was on my sim, I opened up her relationship panel, selected her brother, clicked on Open Sim Profile & it said he was her brother.  Relationship isn't removed.

@Jaldeer Yeah, it's not an issue of the relationships being removed. Just of them no longer showing in the hover menu.

Right...I think it's supposed to be that way, although I liked it when you hovered over it & you could see the relationship that way.  At least the relationships aren't removed.  That would be a pain.
