Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansion packs: All of them. Gameplay packs: Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure, StrangerVille. Stuff packs: Luxury Party, Perfect Patio, Cool Kitchen, Spooky, Vintage Glamour, Bowling Night, Fitness, Toddler, Laundry Day-Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Start a new game or load a savegame. Play the game until the game generate new NPCs on home or community lots. Go to Manage Worlds and then to Manage Households and check the recently new generated household/NPCs with CAS.
What happens when the bug occurs? Every new created Sims now wearing the same hats, socks or accesoires (jewely, necklaces, glasses and ear rings) on every clothes. Sims wearing hats and caps on sleepwear. They also wear socks on swimwears and sometimes they wearing also the same clothes e.g on party or cold weather clothes and wear the Eyeball rings quite often.
What do you expect to see? Newly generated sims no longer wearing inappropriate the same accessoires on every clothes, socks should not wear for swimwear, hats not for sleepwears etc. and no duplicated clothes for Party and cold weather.
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. Sep.3.2020 update

‌I'm not sure if anyone has the same issue but since the latest patch, every newly created sims wears the same accessories, hats and socks on every clothing, especially for sleep- and swimwears. Male sims sometimes wear also the same clothes for party and cold weather.


On the first screenshot, this Male sims wears the same glasses, necklace (hidden on sportwear), bracelet, rings especially the eye rings on every clothes (not all clothes included).




This male sim has the same hat, accesoires, glasses and socks for every clothes what he wearing and has the same outfit for party and same shoes for formal and party, wear socks for swimwear and he also wears the same eye ring but with different color.





Interestingly is that she wears a different glasses and no necklace for formalwear and no rings for sportwear but she wears the same necklaces, glasses,and bracelets on every clothes she is wearing. She also wears those eye rings again.





I've tried on CAS with the Dice/Randomize-Button or creating new sims and it works without issues so it seems, that only NPCs are affected.

To be frank, I wish autogenerated sims wouldn’t wear any accessories at all! Maybe glasses could be okay as long as the skiing glasses are off limits.


There are other things, for example the clown-tonsure, that are off limits for autogenerated sims, so I don’t see how they couldn’t make every accessory off limits for autogenerated sims. I mean, I understand that it would be a hassle, because there are a lot of accessories and I’m pretty sure they would have to add this off-limits-tag to every item separately (depending on how it’s implemented), but at least the function is already there, it could’ve been worse.

Even SimGuruGeorge (I think it was him, at least not someone on the development or bug-fixing teams) has written on Twitter how much he hates that almost every autogenerated sim wears the eyeball ring. Don’t the devs think of this as annoying too?

@Katrus91 Yeah this is why I simply can't play without mccc anymore since it has that feature to remove all accessories from any sim. Too bad that console players have no control on how ridiculous every townie looks like. :/

I have noticed this too, with the last save I've played. Randoms were already a pain with their ridiculous outfits, now that pain is bigger, because of all the accessories they are covered by in EVERY outfit category. I used to enjoy giving them makeovers, not so much anymore.

Can they please find a way to prevent NPC's from using accessories? And include makeup at the same time, because yikes....some are just horrendous, especially on sims with darker skin. I think they deserve to look beautiful too, not like its Amateur Clown Night at the nearest bar.
