[ 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? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Placing Skill book from another DLC on a shelf/display will change its book cover.
What happens when the bug occurs? It changes the original book cover.
What do you expect to see? Book cover should be the same as the original book cover.
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 

When I put the Grade School Homework on the table it shows the correct cover but if i put it on display shelves it changes to another cover.

 

I have also read to other simmer that have these problems too:
-Baking Skill Book Cover turns to Charisma Skill Book Cover
-Logic Skill Book Cover Volume One turns to Mischief Skill Bool Cover
-Herbalism Skill Book Cover turns to Mixology Skill Book Cover
-Parenting Skill Book Cover turns to Mixology Skill Book Cover
-Wellness Skill Book Cover turns to Mixology Skill Book Cover
-The Night The Moon Forgot to Shine Book Cover (Mystery Genre) turns to a cover that looks like a dog that is chasing a ball
-The Mantis War Book Cover ( Science Fiction ) turns to a cover that is the same as the one stated above ( a dog that is chasing a ball.)
- Grade School Homework when displayed turns to a High school Homework. ( from orange to blue cover).

Seen this before somewhere. Might have been posted in the small bugs thread.

 

Is it just when you place them on that bookshelf or is it a matter of marking it as for sale that triggers the change ?

 

Also changed your title to reflect the issue you're having.

I am having this issue as well.

 


I'm making a book store in my game, and I've noticed that base game books such as "Fitness Vol 1: Put down the milkshake" retain their cover image when pulling them onto a shelf display, however books from paid packs such as Wellness Vol 1 & Herbalism Vol 1 do not. They simply take the form of a base game book such as the mixology book. not all base game books keep their covers either. I just saw Logic Vol 1 turn into the mischief cover when trying to display it.
