I've had the same problem with both my toddler and children sims. I've found that if I apply the details while they're in the "everyday" outfit category, the details stick throughout all the other outfit categories. This includes exiting and re-entering CAS.

We've had trouble reproducing this, could you possibly share a save file to help us better investigate this? Thanks for the help!

Hi, just a note that I'm having this issue now. All up to date, both with and without mods/cc. Other toddler Sims in the same household have had skin details without problem, but this one (toddler A) just won't.

 

I made another toddler (toddler B) in the household and that toddler ( B ) could use skin details properly. I deleted the bugged toddler ( A ), at which point the new toddler ( B ) also became bugged and could not use the skin details properly.

 

If I again make a third toddler ( C ),they work fine but the second toddler ( B ) remains bugged.

 

I removed toddler B and made a fourth toddler (toddler D). Now, both toddlers C and D can use skin details properly.

 

They're all (half) mermaids, but I don't think that's the issue here given the people with the same problem had it prior to that.

 

Note: I kept playing with it from there and it seemed to be pretty random. Sometimes the randomised twin worked with skin details, sometimes not. Sometimes a differently generated toddler worked with skin details, sometimes not. There didn't seem to be any logic to it.

 

My save is here, they'll look a bit wacky without the CC but the same is happening with the EA skin details (and without my mods folder in and caches cleared etc) https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjmIPAGbIe7QhE6CcQRflcYmZemX?e=BUiNAV @SimGuruNick
