[FIXED] [XB1/PS4] Shiny Pets when wearing a certain collar

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? GP04:1.assets.live-gp04.88
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? everything up to date (08.12.19)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? look at every sim and pet and see if it is shiny I guess? I started noticing this after installing IL btw.
What happens when the bug occurs? shiny textures on pets and sims. So far some of my dogs are shiny and I have encountered one shiny sim.
What do you expect to see? for sims and pets to not look shiny.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

this is how 2 of the dogs look

@ra7orrat The scout uniform is a known issue also for PC.

It's probably best if you post here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-S-Scout-Uniform-appears-has-random-texture/m-p/7989... and make this about the pets.

What kind of XB1 do you have ?

umm, what do you mean by what kind of xboxone?

I guess the standard kind...

 

the workaround in the other thread is not possible for me, I can't find an option to set any sim details.

@ra7orrat AFAIK there's different kinds depending on the age of it ?

XBox One S and XBox One X and some other ?

I know that workaround doesn't work on XBox but as it's the same bug, hopefully fixing the PC issue will also fix it for you guys.

oh okay, well it's neither S or X, so just a regular XB1.

I have posted in the thread as you said.

@ra7orrat OK. Thanks.

I'll keep this thread to pets for now.

Thanks for the info.

 

EDIT: There was an issue on Mac at one point where the collar made the pets appear similar to this. Does it happen on all pets for you ? What happens if you remove the collar ?

hey,

it seems to be only one collar (the very first one) they both were wearing that, now I gave them different collars and they still look normal.
