[HSY] Kevin Puri's arm and leg hair cannot be removed

[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
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? 1.90.358.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Load up a save or start a new save with High School Years installed and then go into CAS from Manage Households for the premade Price family in Copperdale.
What happens when the bug occurs? Kevin Puri seems to be created with arm and leg hair applied, but in CAS there's a disconnect because the UI thinks he has no body hair at all by default. This results in a permanent layer of arm and leg hair on Kevin that you can't remove, and trying to apply other options just puts another new layer of hair on top of the permanent ones on his body.
What do you expect to see? The ability to remove or control Kevin's body hair in the UI.
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. Installed High School Years expansion pack.

Here's a pic from CAS, where you can see Kevin has a layer of permanent arm hair on his body, but in the UI it says he has none applied:

You can work around the issue and remove the permanent body hair from Kevin by:

  • Use the cas.fulleditmode cheat to temporarily revert Kevin into a child.
  • Then confirm that change and exit out of CAS to make it stick.
  • Re-enter CAS with the Price family and change Kevin back into a teenager, and he should now have no body hair.



There are a few other things you might need to fix to restore Kevin back to how he was:

  • All outfits will be randomised, because changing him into a child and then exiting CAS removed his teen outfits from memory. But it was necessary to also make the game forget the body hair too. You can recreate the outfits he had before if you wish.
  • He probably has randomised hairstyle and eyebrows too. You can change them back to what he had.
  • He probably has also lost all his fashion likes and dislikes, as children don't have those. He likes Hipster, Polished and Streetwear, and dislikes Rocker.
  • He probably has also lost all his hobby likes -  he likes handiness, guitar and cooking
  • You will need to set his sexual orientation - he wants to be romantic with women and woohoo with women and is not exploring.
  • You will need to restore his aspiration back to the teen aspiration "Goal Oriented", which will also give him the aspiration trait "relatable".
  • His other two traits are Socially Awkward and Romantic.
  • You can then restore his arm and leg hair or set his body hair to whatever you wish

I hope that helps!
