[FIXED] [IL] Sim-Portrait are different with tan

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have the sim tan, then compare portraits. The bug only happens in everyday-wear.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim in the portrait has a much thinner nose and bigger eyes after getting a tan. It almost resembles an alien. The portrait changes from outfit to outfit and looks normal for formal wear, but weird for everyday.
What do you expect to see? The portrait should always resemble my sim.
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. Island Living expansion - or, June 18 patch (don't know which because couldn't tan before Island Living was installed)

Attached is a photo of my sim and a photo of her portrait.

This seems to be fixed for me with the latest patch (although it wasn't in the notes). Maybe someone else can test/confirm it?

I noticed something similar, if my sim is tanned and in a happy mood, the face is much rounder than usual. Only happens when tanned and specificly very happy. For other emotions the picture seems fine.

@crinrict  @coriiiiiiiii me too, but her face sort of enlongates in the middle of the face on mine, "snaps back" after a while to a proper portrait. ill try to screenshot it next time it happens

for me its not tied to getting a tan though i dont think.

The issue seems to be a general distortion of the face, not only the nose. It happens with specific moods (for example "happy", "confident"; other moods like "uncomfortable" and "tense" are not affected) and seems only to occur when the sim wears the everyday outfit.

 

See examples below (the pictures where my sim is tanned and wearing the everyday outfit with the moods happy and confident, are distorted; other pictures are fine):

@bremar13 Going to merge this with the thinner nose one. Seems there's different symptoms to this.

@crinrict Seems like the same distortion issue to me. I guess the symptoms vary depending on which facial features you manipulated most on your sim to make it look unique/different from the average townie. The facial features in the portrait picture seem to revert to some norm.
Maybe most players don't manipulate the facial features much and therefore wouldn't see/notice the difference in the pictures.

@bremar13 Also noted bigger eyes on one of my sims pictures. And in your picture the sim has also a thinner nose like discussed in this thread.
