OMG, YES...this has happened to me too. Everything was perfectly fine yesterday but after the update my sims Alien form has completely overwritten her disguise. She has 2 alien forms and now I don't even remember what my Sims disguise even looked like. Hopefully they'll have this fixed soon. :/

@Pegasyms From the worldmap/manage households or from a mirror

 

If the alien don't wear the disguise, CAS will keep it.

 

If the alien is wearing the disguise, CAS will replace it.

She kept her disguise and he lost his disguise.

No it doesn't, it simply replaces the alien disguise. What's the point in having a disguise if the alien just "layers over it" anyway? It really doesn't matter how or where I change it, it simply won't stick once out of CAS

The alien must remove the disguise before to go in CAS.


@NoahLGP
i did that and the disguise gets alien eyes glitched on instead

So sorry to hear that everyone else is indeed having this problem. I really hope we won't have to wait months for a fix. For most people this is pretty major and a huge waste of time as they will lose hours of time customizing disguises only to have them overwritten, well...before they realize it's broken anyways. I wonder what the patch changed that caused this error?

@Populuxe What I know, before this patch this issue occurred only with the Alien-Vampire (vampire born from an alien abduction).

@NoahLGP  Oh does it??? The vampire pack is the only one I don't have, so I haven't experienced this myself. An alien vampire, now that is an interesting combo...

 

It's helpful to know this issue actually existed beforehand, maybe both occurrences can be addressed at the same time. Wondering

If I'm not mistaken, didn't they actually tweak something about vampire "disguises" or dark form (whatever, it's the same thing anyway)? Perhaps that's what caused this bug in our games too? Anyway yes, hope this gets fixed very soon 

 

From the patch:

  • Vampire ears on the base form of a Sim will no longer disappear when the Sim enters live mode.
  • Toddlers born with vampire parents, will now maintain the eye color they were born with (or that the player had modified them to be) even after loading them into Create a Sim

Idk, I just got a feeling that it's somehow related to the vampire fixes in some mysterious way  - especially cause I saw on the forums that some people got random non-vampires walking around town with pointy ears since the patch ^^

The patch notes on Vampires:

 

       Vampires

 

  • Vampire ears on the base form of a Sim will no longer disappear when the Sim enters live mode.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent a Sim from gaining access to others' homes when they have the Eternally Welcome vampire power.
  • Eternally Welcome, except this time. And… that other time. Oh, and remember after the house warming party? Yea… definitely not eternally welcome.
  • Sims that have been turned into Vampires should no longer have a non-functional age bar.
  • Toddlers born with vampire parents, will now maintain the eye color they were born with (or that the player had modified them to be) even after loading them into Create a Sim.

Well look at that! You're right, they did change some things about vampire forms, especially when going into live mode.
