What do you expect to see? No houndstooth pattern on darker skin tones.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

@SociallySoephie I checked one of my Sims with your setting and it's looking fine.

What graphics card do you have ?

Do you see it in all dark skin tones or only certain ones ? If it's only certain ones, which one do you have it with ?

I haven't checked all dark skin tones but here is my graphics card information attached. I can check the range of skintones this evening when I get home from work.

@SociallySoephie OK. That's a rather low level chip. It's possible that it's still happening on those.

 

Could you maybe try a Sim called Kensh Lamir from my gallery. That's the Sim I tried.

Okay so I checked out Lamir and the pattern is visible on him once I load him up in a fresh game (Though that skin tone was one of the less severely affected ones).

After testing every skin tone in my game I've also attached a picture with the ones that are affected to varying degrees.

 

It was just weird because I didn't have this issue previously when using the uncompressed sim textures. The pattern only appeared between the last time I played in late September and when I loaded up my game again yesterday.

@SociallySoephie I'll do some further testing once things calm down a bit.

I'm also seeing this still on PS4, It's very obvious. I don't know what gets corrected in the screenshots but it doesn't show very well in them. The pattern is very visible on the sim sitting at the table.
