[NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Seams on pets when using paint mode

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

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? 1.45.62.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? in CAS create a cat or dog and use paint mode to paint the ears entirely a different color than its base color. It's easier to see when the has only one color for its base coat (i.e a fully black or white cat). In game the seam is more noticeable if you paint a white cats' ears black.
What happens when the bug occurs? seams show around ears and on neck
What do you expect to see? no seams
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

This is my actual first time using the paint option when creating a pet so i'm not sure how long this was an issue. There are no seams anywhere if i use a preset breed or avoid using the paint tool around the ears or neck. They do show in game, especially noticeable when the cat's base color is white and you paint the ears a darker color. Not sure if it's related to my computer because i do have seam issues with some cc, that others have no issue with. Again, this is only in paint mode. When i use a preset breed with black ears the seam is not there.This also happens with dogs.

Hi @jessiechaput44

 

do you have a Nvidia or AMD card  ? This looks similar to this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Weird-Facial-Lines/m-p/4976595#M17333

 

If you have a Nvidia card, could you test if it goes away if you try the fix posted ?

Yes i have a Nvidia and I've had that issue with facial lines as well and followed that thread awhile ago. I double checked to make sure the antialiasing fix was still set to on and it was.

@Phantomlover1717 tested it for me and she also has some lines but for her it looked more like the line issue.

I'm very bad with this stuff so I delegated.

Maybe others are seeing this too ?

Never noticed this problem till i saw your thread and now i can see them on my cat, too. Especially around the ears are the lines really notable.

 

I'm also a Nvidia user. Maybe this will help 🤔

I have the same issues since the last update.

 

Its also show up in the paint mode after its save the colors Automatically. They also show up at the belly, at all edges of the uvw map.

 

I also have a nvidia geforce and never had a problem before. 

 

They are also show up without cc so it don’t cause the blur edges.

I'm also having this problem and I have an AMD card, so not sure if there's a workaround for this type of card or not.  Though I also notice that the seams on the stomach at least are really apparent even during game play, I haven't really noticed the ones near the ears while playing.
