@petalhands Did you test without  cc/mods?

 

On th video the randomizing traits seems to be the culprit but it's clear she uses CC as well.

I tried to duplicate this yesterday from what I thought you said but couldn't

@Sar-bear1304 DId you test this without mods installed ? There have been similar reports but thos ehav ebeen mod/cc related.

Make sure to only use updated mods/cc and always test all your issues on an unmodded game.

Mermaid Form being dropped after randomizing features then traits

★★★★★ Apprentice

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? ALL
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into CAS, create a mermaid, go into human form, unlink forms (where the human form won't change the mermaid form), randomize eyes or other feature, then use the random traits button. The mermaid form will disappear. And I tried the mermaid kelp in live mode with the sim and they still can't be a mermaid. It completely glitches them out from mermaid occult.
What happens when the bug occurs? Mermaid form disappears.
What do you expect to see? Mermaid form to stay.
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 

See attached video:

You can see me unlink the forms, randomize the eyes, and as soon as I hit the random trait button, the mermaid form disappears. This is completely vanilla folder. Mods have never even touched this folder.

ETA: You dont' even need to unlink the forms. It still drops the mermaid occult with forms linked or unlinked. Vampires and Aliens don't drop their occult, like mermaids do.
