Re: [TO ADD] Hair and Eyebrow Swatches not reflecting actual colors on the Sim

I'm still having issues with my aliens. The hair swatches don't work still! If I try to change the color the swatch color doesn't match what I get. I can go to a different color and return to the first swatch and it will be yet a different random color!

I'm running the latest version of this game and this problem is still present. I've been having it for the past 4 or so updates now.

I'm having this issue as well. I haven't played an alien in a while, but I went to make one today and noticed that none of the colors I clicked on for hair were matching with the swatch I chose. I hope they can fix this soon.

I hadn't played aliens in awhile and when I made one yesterday had the same issue. The hair color was not the one I was choosing and the colors kept changing every time I rotated through trying to pick a color. I made a YA female and I haven't looked at the males to know if it affects them. However, it wasn't affecting my human sims the chosen hair color appeared as the color it was.

I'm not entirely sure if it's the same issue that I'm having, but I'm having issues with hair and eyebrow swatches as well - in my game, it's affected both males and females and all occult life states - vampires, too. I do have to add that the vampire in question had an alien father, so he does have alien genes (and an alien skin color).It affects all ages for me, even (especially actually) toddlers and kids. For me, what I notice most of all is my Sims' hair colors randomly have changed. Noticed this mostly on unplayed Sims. When I go into CAS to change their colors back to what they had, the swatches don't really work well but I do eventually manage to get it working and they'll go out of CAS with their normal hair colors... but it will at some point randomly switch up again. So I'm not sure if it's the same issue exactly, as mine is more about Sims with occult genes changing hair colors out of nowhere, but I do think this has to do with the swatches. Also seemed to affect hybrid Sims most of all, i.e. Sims who had at least one alien parent. The ones most affected for me have been two vampires with alien parents, who have an alien skintone (not alien/vamp hybrids as they were not born through abductions). Might also just look like it affects hybrid Sims more because they're undisguised, though. I don't check up on my alien's forms as much.

Feb 21 patch update has not fixed this issue for female aliens. (I'm not sure about vamps or vampliens as I don't currently have either in game.) No mods, created in a brand new game and it's still there... it's really rather disappointing that it's still not fixed.

Thanks. Just dropping the info on here for future reference.
