Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have Island Living, make a small swimming pool, and choose" Swim Laps" as the sim.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim will use the slow swimming mermaid animation with crooked feet and joined legs

I tried to have my sim do "Swim Laps" on a small swimming pool, but they use the mermaid small swimming animation instead of the ones normal sim usually do. It can be seen by the crooked feet movement and joined legs. I've recorded a video for it. Already took out all mods and ccs and the bug still persists.

@onlyabidoang Tested this in my game. How small was the pool ? My mermaids switched fine.

Could you test this in a fresh save with a fresh mermaid that never saw any mods ?

@crinrictit will occur if you're doing it with a regular sim, not mermaids. They used the small mermaid swim animation as a human sim instead of the regular human swimming animation, hence the crooked feet and joined legs. For the pool size, there's a video I provided in the main post as a reference. Yes, I tried it on a fresh new save. Sorry if it's not clear enough.

Not sure if this happens if you don't have the pack but added as IL issue

What is your current game version number? Updated August 18th
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs EXCEPT: Moschino Stuff, My First Pet Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Put an active sim in a 2x8 pool of water to swim laps
What happens when the bug occurs? Human sim uses mermaid animation, broken feet ensue
What do you expect to see? Human sims should not swim like they have tails, and feet should not act like they are fins.
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 

I had a human sim begin to swim in a small pool and noticed that her animation seemed to be the mermaid one, but my save has never had mermaids played, nor am I using CC at this time. Look at the feet, something is very very wrong with that, and I can't seem to make her stop swimming like that, even resetting the sim. I am pretty sure that is a glitch and not sure how to make her stop, as the feet part are really creeping me out.
