[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? 中文(繁體)
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Without Spooky Stuff , Kids Room Stuff , Backyard Stuff , Laundry Day Stuff , My First Pet Stuff. I have all expansions , game packs and stuff packs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I guess the starting point of this problem comes from Get To Work. Because this problem happened when I chose to play Doctor career after. Before I did it. My sims correctly wear on their work outfit. The first time I encountered this problem was I found my sim wear her previous work outfit. (After I set one of them in my sim family join to doctor career. I let one of them(doing chef career) in my sim family go to painter career.) After that I try to use cheat code in game to reset my sim ,but it's not work. Then I try to find all files about the game and reinstalled it. I use the old character to start new world ,but the problem still exists. This time it having an awful, random work outfit.
What happens when the bug occurs? First time I found character will wear her previous work outfit. Then character work off they wear an awful, random work outfit.
What do you expect to see? They should put on the work outfit they should wear.
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 

It happen two of them in my sim family.

After reply, I checked all my old save files.

That's all. Thank you for reading this.

I don't know whether the problem can be solved in the end, but I really appreciate your reply.

It's really very difficult for me to find the relevant questions in all English-Language websites.

I really love this game ,but glitch/bug ruining my feeling.

Just to be sure, you tried this on a fresh save with no added mods/cc and it happened on that new Sims as well or only on saves that had mods/cc in at one point ?

For now, you can edit the career outfit with the is cheat:

1. testingcheats on
2. sims.modify_career_outfit_in_cas

I have deleted the file I first encountered this problem. Sorry about it.

 

I start a new save ,but I used the sim I had created before.

(the sim with no skill and no reward talent.)

It still exists. I will try to start new save with new sims.

I will keep this one save file. If you need it.

 

Thank you for your help.

Sadly, this way can only cover up the problem.

 

I thinking about completely delete the sims 4 and Origin and reinstall them.

Then I'll start a new game again with new sims.

If it doesn't work. I might have given up playing the sims 4.

There's no need for reinstall. There might be a bug here. I'm just trying to make sure it's not mod related.

Haven't encountered it myself yet.

You are right. I think the mod I installed earlier broke my old sims.

(I already delete the mod. For now my game doesn't have any mod.)

I've tried two new save today.(with new sim , one male and one female.)

I guess this time the bug did not appear again.

But I'm not sure if they're really wearing the correct outfit.

Because I haven't played tech guru career before.

But their work outfit very similar.

I might try to spend more time verifying that the results are correct.

 

I met 2 bugs when I playing.

I will open a new discussion in the next two or three days.

Unless there is a discussion string here.

 

For your help and patience.

Thank you very much, Crin.

@Alwaysgoodmood Moved your post to the general/tech issues section. Can always move it back, should you find out it's not a mod issue after all.

I think I met a new change in the problem.

Do I need to edit my initial article later?(If I need to.)

Anyway, this is my present result. I hope to help clarify the point a bit.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I start other new start.(third time)(with new sim and new pet.)

This time I still playing tech guru career.

Then the bug happens again.

It's similar to the bug I met before in my old save.(with old sim and new pet.)

I would say very similar. Because their work outfit are just as weird and random.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All three of my tests were in the same place , same building.(new sim, world)

Only third time I create a pet with sim.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After it happen again. I go back to play my first test save (new male sim , tech guru career.)

I think bug still exist.

He didn't change his work outfit when he was going to work.(only change when he work off.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now I have some questions want to ask you.

Do all career have work outfit in any tier?

I knew the chef has a black chef's suit. And my sim will wear it when she going to work. When she work off also.

If yes , does code monkey(tech guru , 3 tier) have work outfit?

I want to know because this is now I testing in all three test's save

If yes , can you please show me its picture?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I feel very confused now ,but still thank you very much.

There's careers that don't have a dedicated work outfit.

I'll do some testing.

(I assume your new tests are without mods/cc) ?
