When I made a pet for the first time in a while, I noticed that it had no beard. Even if you select from the beard list, it will not be reflected. When I checked the existing pet, it had no beard. Maybe from a recent patch?

Cats don't seem to have visible whiskers anymore - not in CAS, haven't checked live mode yet. The whiskers edit does nothing, and they just do not appear. I don't know exactly when it happened, but I am fully updated, pulled all my mods, and still no whiskers.

At first I thought it was just that all my cats have gotten old, but then I noticed that no cats have whiskers. Not in CAP or in game.

I am bringing this to the forum as it seems to be one of many bugs ignored/unnoticed.
Both on XBox One and on PC, Cat Sims lack whiskers. This can be seen both inside and outside of CAS, however it is most glaringly obvious in CAS.

There has been a bug-fix patch since the Likes/Dislikes update, which I had hoped would have fixed it.
However, since before Likes/Dislikes Cat Sims have lacked whiskers.
I do not know when exactly this first occurred.
My XBox One version has only Cats & Dogs, My First Pet, and Island Living on it. Cats & Dogs being the FIRST thing purchased.
And I actually LOVE the whisker options, so I was very upset to see NO whiskers appearing on any kitties.
My PC version has all but a handful of DLC.
I shouldn't be noticing such an obvious bug on BOTH versions, yet here we are.

Really, I've noticed both PC and Xbox One share a lot of bugs, actually I've just logged 90 of them currently, but that's for another post.
Right now, my cats need whiskers. All cats need whiskers.

A quick note: I do plan on having CC & Mods on the PC version, however I wanted to do a quick vanilla test-run to see how broken the game is right off the bat.
I tend to brush off glitches and bugs when CC/Mods are active, unless it crashes the game.
I also am running TS4 on a brand new, high quality, and very expensive laptop- just in case anyone might wonder if an older computer could be the issue.

I've run into this too. I don't do a lot of pets, but know the whiskers definitely worked last I made a cat.

 

And for the sake of things: this is with graphics on max.

@EmoKawaiiChibiIt happens on Mac as well. Pretty sure it dates to the March hair update.

Since nothing seems to be happening on EAs side I took a look at the (functioning!) default replacements by pickypikachu to figure out what might be wrong.

 

Turns out, the “Geometry” files for whiskers for some reason weren’t referenced (anymore?) in the game files (”Region Map” files).

 

I fixed the issue for adult cats as well as for kittens. You can download my mod on my tumblr:

@crinrict Sorry for tagging you, but do you think you can mark my mod posted above somehow for visibility so that people can find it easily and maybe someone on EAs side can use the info as well. I still hope that the issue can be officiallly fixed, since I don't think everybody can or wants to use mods.

 

Btw thank you so much for all the work you do here to keep the chaos organized for so many years now! :-)

@SimplyAnjuta I'm sorry, but mod links aren't allowed on AHQ.

I also usually don't accept mod workarounds as solution as they don't work for console.

I'll happily add it to the mod fix list though: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/INFORMATION-Common-Game-Fixing-Mods-Hero-Approved/m-p/10111432...
