Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Enter the game, select a masculine frame sims, slim them down [muscle and fat sliders] and observe they have a bulging neck.

What do you expect to see? When I make a masculine frame sims, I expect them to have normal necks not something I can't look at.

Hi @MrInnce

 

I had tried this on my game and wasn't able to duplicate

 

  • What graphics card do you have ?
  • What settings are you playing on ?

Unfortunately  there's no real info in that thread.

 

Have you tried playing around with your settings ?

I noticed that the issue is persistent with sims that were made before the patch for cats and dogs [including the sims from picture provided]. Thr glitch is not noticeable with the newly made sims. Playing with settings does nothing.

Does it only happen when you slim them down ? I do think I see what you mean but I'm a bit unsure

 

Guess I'm going to add this for now.

Yes only happens with really skinny sims, with both sliders down to 0. Thank you for quick replies.

For the bug to be obvious, the neck needs to be thinned as to suit the frame of the skinny sims. And, of course, the sliders both al the way down. I personally can see it on sims I download off the gallery too, nor only my own, if I skin them down.
