[NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Pets not showing fatness + increased belly size (slider use)

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

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? 1.62.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a dog with the fatness slider turned all the way up and then view it in game.
What happens when the bug occurs? Dog does not appear as large as it does in CAS, appearing as if the slider was all the way down.
What do you expect to see? A fat-as-heck dog ingame.
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 

This has been going on for quite a while, but I'm just now getting to posting it.

I've noticed that despite maxing the fitness sliders to max for my dog here, as well as increasing the size of their tummy to the max in CAS, they don't appear so in game.
They've been played in game for a good while now, and have been aged down after aging up, though even since the beginning, they never appeared as fat as they have been made in CAS. There are no mods installed.

@batresko217 Can you clarify a few things please? I am wondering if, even though they may be registering as the same fitness and fat, if there may be any other differences? I am wondering about reasons for these differences I notice:

  • One (bottom) appears to have a higher graphics quality/resolution. You can try playing with your graphics resolution settings in-game to see if this increases the accuracy there. Can you share your graphics settings for the game?
  • Are they different ages? Has the in-game dog been played at all (no matter how minor) - or are these exactly the same time in-game and in-CAS?
  • If there is any difference in play-time with them, no matter how minor, is it possible that one is more close (in play) to moving up (or down) in 'fitness/fat'. If memory serves in regards to sims there can be subtle physical changes that can be noticed before the actual fitness level changes, etc. (This would only possibly come into play if the CAS screenshot was not at the exact time as the live-game one.)

Anyway... this may help if I could clarify these things or other differences that may come to mind. Also, do you have Mods/CC? I will check on if there are known bugs on this issue.

 

In my game I don't see a fitness difference, though the graphics are a bit better in CAS. I would see these two as the same fitness level, though the one in CAS shows more definition to muscle tone and features/fur/contour since the graphics are apparently better there. (Though in my game the graphics in-game are still quite decent.) The in-game shot was taken immediately upon loading the household to the lot, so they were only played a few seconds. I tested with two dogs in this household, but only am posting the one. Same results on both.

@batresko217 Can we try a few things then?

 

The large, recent patch/update brought in many changes. These types of changes effect many aspects of the game. Mods and CC involve code that can sometimes clash with the updated game code, and even cause damage, if not properly updated to match the new changes in the game's codes. Even after you remove the Mods/CC, sometimes damage can linger in the game code that can be addressed by removing cache and repairing. I would recommend that you do the following in this order:

  • Exit your game then exit Origin. Copy the Mods folder from your 'The Sims 4' folder onto your desktop (for future reference) then delete the mods folder and the localthumbnailcache.package file in your 'The Sims 4' folder and restart the game and so that the game will re-create the folder.
  • Then run a game repair [ Open Origin, click 'Game Library' then right-click Sims 4 > Repair Game ]. Make sure to let it run until it has completed all repairs (it will do the basegame first, then run through each of your expansions/packs). After that, please see if the issue has stopped.

If It fixes the situation I would recommend that you check with the Mod and CC creators to see if there are any known issues with their Mod/CC clashing with the update and if so do they have an updated Mod/CC that will address the changes in the game's code from the update. You can then re-add your updated Mods/CC one at a time to see if one was conflicting with the function/causing the glitch - but do not re-add the old config file from the old mods folder, as it is possible for it to have become corrupted also.

 

Also, would you be willing to upload your dog to the community gallery then provide me the exact name of the household plus your gallery username ID? This would allow me the opportunity to see if I can replicate this in my game.

@batresko217 I can confirm that it seems that I see the same differences in my game, so I guess this is how the dog will look in-game, regardless. It is normal to see differences (lower res, ets) in-game than in CAS, but I agree, it does end up in this case looking like the dog is less muscular. Following is what I see in CAS and in-game with your dog:

@batresko217 That is an excellent point... if the dog is pregnant, or was recently pregnant, that may explain the issue.
