We saw your feedback about the October skin tones update and, to improve clarity and transparency, we shared a first look on Twitter of the fix in progress.

With this patch, the Console game gets the October fixes for texture compression, resolving the banding on the cheeks and foreheads as well as discoloration on the tip of the nose.

In addition, this patch addresses the two community-identified issues of red dots around the lips and a dark blotch between the eyes. The red dots around the lips should be completely resolved at this time. The dark blotch between the eyes was softened to remove the hard edge, but the darkening is expected as part of the shadowing around the nose.

Fixed in Patch 1.68.154/ 1.33

I have the issue too, the new skin makes them look sick... (My computer settings are set at ultra, it's not the graphic card)

Weird Orange Texture on Darker Skin Tones

What is your current game version number? 1.54.120.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In CAS
What happens when the bug occurs? It's always a weird orange spot on the darker skin tones that came with a free update
What do you expect to see? I create a sim and give them one of the newer dark skin tones, but there's an orange spot in the middle of their face
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? No

So there was a free update that came out with new dark skin tones, and ever since there's still been a weird spot in the middle of the faces of the sims with these skin tones, is EA/Maxis going to fix this?

I have this problem too, but even worse (imo), and it's all over the face, not just certain areas. My graphic settings are set to the highest.

This is still an issue over 2 years after the skin update! All added darker skins in my game still have this discoloration.

I still have this issue. It sucks because most of the darker skins look strange with the glitch and I can't use most of these skin tones now. They really need to fix this.
