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? 1.58.69.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make Servo graduate from university
What happens when the bug occurs? The graduation portrait shows random sim instead of Servo
What do you expect to see? The portraits should show Servos

DU is of course full of bugs and some are serious ones, but I just hope somebody will create a thread for each of them. this bug is quite small and simple, the best way to describe it is to just show. Here is my Servo and its portrait:

It is pretty hilarious. I just hope this is a glitch and not developers being lazy and making a servo-lifestate just a permanent costume over an ordinary sim (which is somehow ignored by the portrait).

Why "Need input" is on this thread? What other input is needed? I think my screenshot says it all as clear as possible.

Does anyone know if this is still a problem? I mean, I guess it is, because I haven't seen anything about it in any patch notes, but just asking to make sure. I want to have a servo going to university, but I don't want him to bug out or to not have a proper graduation photo, so I'm hesitating on sending him to uni.

Yes, it is a problem. As I have mentioned earlier in other thread, servos are just robotic skin over a regular sim (similarly like skeletons). There are several means to get rid of it and see what they look like without said skin. Somehow graduation photo does the same and shows a "real" face of a sim behind the robot-skin.

I am guessing the Sim in the picture is the original Sim under the Servo "skin", and when the picture generates it is supposed to remove clothing so it also removes the skin. This has been happening since Discover University came out and it is kind of weird it has not been fixed yet.

@vilik3stuf858It works slightly differently than you've described. What happens is that all clothes of a sim are replaced with this Academic dress. Dressing Servo always results in servo-skin being removed.

The reason for this was described in my original post - though back then I wasn't sure. But after some more testing it is clear now that the developers WERE lazy and chose the easiest way to add servos into the game - i.e. created them as ordinary sims with (not-so-permanent) robotic skins.
