[DU] Scared Servos don't have appropriate facial expressions

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? eco lifestyle, discover university, get famous, seasons, cats and dogs, city living, get together, get to work; realm of magic, strangerville, jungle adventure, vampires, dine out; nifty knitting, tiny living; moschino, laundry day, toddler, vintage glamour, romantic garden, movie hangout, spooky, perfect patio
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? play with a servo as your active sim and wait for an occasion in which they experience the new scared emotion - during a thunderstorm, or with the paranoid trait are good options.
What happens when the bug occurs? the servo plays the animations for being scared etc. but has no facial expression (like when they 'recharge').
What do you expect to see? I expect the servo to have a facial expression for the scared emotion like it has for all other emotions, like the expression it is given in its portrait.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. scared emotion patch

Relatedly, while a servo normally has all 'sleep' interactions on beds renamed to 'recharge', when in the scared emotion the interactions change back to 'sleep'.

I've also noticed this. First I just thought it was the bug of that the servo's facial expression disappears just randomly, which sometimes happens with just any emotion, but having a paranoid servo I've now noticed that it NEVER has a facial expression when scared.

Yeah, this is an issue I've noticed recently myself.

In the meantime until when & if they fix the issue, I figured out how to make a fix myself and just shared it over on MTS:

I can confirm that scared Servos don't have proper facial expressions - their faces are simply blank when scared. I believe The Sims Team forgot to design the appropriate facial expression for Servos while working on the scared emotion update.
