Product: The Sims 4
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? 126.96.36.1990
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Outdoor Retreat and Spooky Day Stuff (or Island Living since it's not released yet)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into the Goth Household. Alexander will have black eyebrows. Edit him or any other household member through a mirror, dresser, or shift-click>modify sim. Alexander's eyebrows will turn brown and he will only have three color options for them. Note that this does NOT effect new child sims created in Create A Sim, or all established children (for instance, Olivia Kim-Lewis and the Munch kid got to keep their eyebrow colors and full range of color swatches). I did not check every household.
What happens when the bug occurs? Alexander loses his black eyebrows and cannot get them back. Only has 3 options to choose from
What do you expect to see? Alexander should get to prove that he's a natural born goth, no artificial dyes or preservatives needed. But he should also get the full range of eyebrow color options to broodily deny.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It had to be after the June or April 2019 patches. I edited the Goth household in another save just before that patch and that Alexander still has black eyebrows but will lose them if I try to edit them again.
Alexander with his definitely black eyebrows: x
Alexander in CAS with brown eyebrows and 3 swatches: x
Mods have been off since the April patch.
Same here! I can't change his eyebrow color away from three. Using the "Match Hair" function, doesn't fix it either, since there are only 3 color options (It only works if the hair is one of those three colors)
Free the eyebrow!
I think Alexander might have been created using an asset that wasn’t finished or something, if you change his eyebrows to any of the presets you can make them black.
Ooh, I see what you mean, @ValiantRedKnight. If you look at my original image of him in CAS, you can also see that none of the eyebrows are highlighted, showing he's not using any of the presets (and his eyebrows don't really look like any of those images). If you click on one of the others, you can then switch to black. However, I do have a save file with Alexander with his original eyebrows still in black, so it must be a hidden/partiallydeleted asset? Regardless, thanks for the workaround. I didn't try clicking on the other eyebrows, and I'm glad I can finally change their outfits, even if I prefer his old eyebrows.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
