[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? not sure since I don't know what is causing it and it is random.
What happens when the bug occurs? When Patchy the Scarecrow comes to life he is human and wearing clothes that my male sim wears.
What do you expect to see? A scarecrow
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

When the scarecrow comes to life it often takes on a human form and is dressed in the same clothes I have selected for my male sim.  His human appearance is always the same, a bald male.

Hi @Jan_831 

 

have you chosen the lifestyle brand where you set a trend as what Sims wear ? Don't remember what it's called but that might be the cause.

Hi Crin,
No, I have never chosen the lifestyle brand perk so that would not be the reason for the problem.

That is the cause in my own save, and I thought it was by design. My original played sim is a style influencer and created a masculine trend. Didn't realize they'd always be bald--that's an interesting tidbit, though I shouldn't be surprised as I found out a bit ago that all colors of Patchy are still the same guy (he gets lots of loving in my saves--not always prompted). hehe (no hate on appearance, either. Bald can be very sexy.)

Hi @ SimGurulcarus,
I messaged you with links to my latest saved game where this problem and the problem with the maid I mentioned in a separate post both occur.

@Jan_831 Did you use that style influencer career as @bookmaster325 described ?

No, I have never used the style influencer at all, so I am pretty sure that is not the reason.

Random sims are changing into my famous sims clothes

I don't know why but randomly, other sims change their clothes to match my famous sim's clothing and I don't know if its supposed to happen or if its a result of some issue with my mods. Mods include: book of chaos, MCCC, extreme violence, vampire bug fix, eternal youth and immortality, swipe without kleptomaniac trait, deadly hand buzzer, sim torments mod, sorcery mod and i think that was all of them when the weird thing occurred.

Hi @RandomGameNerd 

 

There's a lifestyle brand that does this. Bit unsure of the name right now. Also if you use the Style Influencer Career there's something similar that makes other Sims wear what your Sims wear.

 

It's a feature :D
