[FIXED] Paint from reference sometimes turns black/blank

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Dansk
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.70.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Udforsk universitetet, Årstider, Hunde og Katte, Byliv, Nye Venner, Arbejdstid, Forældre, vampyrer, Ud at spise,
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I would assume, that you would have to paint a lot of "paint from reference". I, my self should have done about 60-70 paint from reference. They're all hanging on a wall.
What happens when the bug occurs? It randomly appears sometimes when I log in. No matter if everything is up to date or not. I have tried re-installing the sims 4, didn't work out. All the paint from reference-paintings goes black. sometimes other painting does too.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the reference that had been painted. In my case paintings of my simmers children.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

The problem started occurring about 1,5 years ago and keeps happening seemingly random. 

I have attached two screenshots that show the black paintings, and that only some turn black. For the first time ever, one of the paintings was black/white or multi coloured.

Re: gallery art, when I put in my game, nothing is on the canvas?

Hero

Photographs taken following today's patch will no longer turn black when stored in the Storage Box.

Fixed in Patch 1.101.290/1.81

 

 

Please be aware that existing black photos/paintings won't be fixed. If you had another cause and it's still happening, please create a new thread, outlining what you did for the photo/painting to turn black.

Good Luck

I have the exact same problem and it's soo irritating because you lose important memories of your sims.

 

It happens whether it's paintings, photos or if you get paintings off the gallery. Even some builds off the gallery with customized photos all go black and there's nothing you can do about it.

Could anyone encountering this issue possibly share a save file with me where it's occurring? Your Config.log (located in your TS4 folder) would also be helpful. You can DM me the link to your files, thanks so much!

I've seen this happen, too.  In my case I just rolled back a save and they were there.  (Whew!)  That may or may not be an option for you, though, depending on when it happened.

I have the same problem. I'm doing a legacy challenge, and I have a painting from reference for each generation and they've all gone black.

Re: [NEEDS SAVES] Paint from reference sometimes turns black

Also had this problem.  However I got my portraits back (at least for the moment) by removing my two mods from my game. 

 

Mod 1 - MCCC - I had actually only installed it a couple of weeks ago to fix the relationship stuck at acquaintance problem, and only because EA had removed the cheat code to do that within the game.

 

Mod 2 - the one to fix the can't build the rocket ship since the newest EP released issue.

 

Since both of the mods are installed to fix issues that shouldn't be happening, I have put them back in, and the paintings are there again for the moment, but I will be keeping a close eye on them each time I get an error from MCCC.

@SimGuruNickI could give a savefile with the current household where this is happening with the graduation picture. Also happens with taken pictures and paint from reference.
