[NEEDS INPUT] [S] Can't Change Clement Frost Beard

[ Edited ]
★★★ Guide

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? 1.45.62.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? CAS modify clement frost, change his entire face, hair and beard included, exit CAS and play game, Clement's huge grey beard remains.
What happens when the bug occurs? Clement holds onto his big grey beard regardless of CAS modification.
What do you expect to see? The new beard I gave him in CAS
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Don't judge, I wanted a more hipster santa clement and found a great outfit for him but when I tried to give him a more groomed beard the old one always remains in play mode. 

 

I do have mods but every removing them it happens as does starting a new cc free game... he just holds onto that sucker for dear life. 

 

It's not a game breaker but it is a non important aesthetic bug.

Might be on purpose though ? It's his signature ? Or is he not Father Winter anymore in your game ?

I'll test.

He still is Clement Frost, still father winter, all I did was trim him up and change his clothing for entertainments sake... and I like to give him the traditional santa hat option in hats section.

 

A new update, I try this daily lol, when I go into CAS it shows the beard I choose for him so it's only out of CAS that it reverts back, CAS remembers the change. All other features I'm able to mess with and they remain outside of CAS, it's just that beard.

 

When I exit it changes back to his beard but this time his beard is no longer grey, it's the new colour but it definitely will not display any other beard option.

Maybe the beard is part of the uniform?

People might not realise this, but his outfits in CAS (everyday, athletic, etc) are separate from the career outfit for Father Winter (which is a special NPC job role).

So when he's not working he should be in whatever you put him wearing in CAS, and on Wintersday when he appears out of a chimney he'll be in the default Father Winter outfit.

 

EDIT: I found that the Father Winter trait which he has for being Father Winter also includes some kind of forced appearance override for some specific CAS part (probably the beard but can't tell for sure).
