Re: Sim doesnt wear uniform

@o0Vanessa0 Don't think so. If you want them to use a vet uniform, you'll need to pick one that has top/button. Fullbody seems the issue.

Good Luck

Re: [CD] Full-Body uniform doesn't stick on owned Vet clinics

@Aether_President I'm having this same issue.

One thing I noticed is that the vet coat full-body uniform constantly has a yellow border on it in my game, as though it's a new item. The yellow border doesn't go away after clicking or exiting/re-entering CAS.

Not sure if anyone else has this part of the problem as well, but just thought it might be worth mentioning in case it's related.

My employees seemed to keep the shoes I set, but wore all sorts of random clothes instead of the vet coat.

For now I've just set the top and bottoms vet uniform but I do miss my vet coat lol

This became a problem after the Werewolves update.

Apparently there is an ongoing unresolved issue with Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack. - This issue been mentioned probably since 2018.

The issue is: After claiming a perk in the vet clinic, specifically the vet coat (full outfit vet coat). The sims are unable to wear the uniform during their shift.

After correctly setting the uniform as the work attire for the vet clinic (both employees and my personal sim) will change to random clothing to perform work actions.

I hope this issue is resolved as soon as possible. If you don’t mind, you can also research on google the same issue others been experiencing for years and still nothing to this date.

Vet Clinic Lab Coat Perk glitch

★★ Newbie

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? cats & dogs, university, seasons, city living, snowy escape, growing together, get together; several kits and stuff packs...
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? own a vet clinic, earn 5K perk points, redeem for special lab coat perk, change employees outfit to lab coat default and add gloves/shoes, start next shift. in my experience i was only working with female bodied sims; don't know if this bug occurs with male bodied sims.
What happens when the bug occurs? 5K perk points were used but instead of wearing the new lab coat outfit, female employees will have a different outfit on, but with the correct accessories and shoes that were put in the default outfit. the vet clinic owner is put in an outfit they don't have in their chosen outfits. vet employees are also in different outfits. one appears as separate top/bottoms and two of them are in full bodied outfits.
What do you expect to see? the correct lab coat from the redeemed perk on all (female bodied) employees.
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 

i did not take screenshots but when this error occurred, the vet owner (my sim) was put in a full bodied outfit from city living (tank top and high waisted pants that i think anaya jang is usually in). one of the employees (julia from university) was in a different discover university outfit (the short sleeved graphic tee with jumper dress) than she's usually in. other employee (not a default townie from one of the expansion packs) was in the lace-back tank top from backyard stuff pack plus the maxi skirt from city living. they all had on the gloves and shoes i'd chosen for the employee outfit but not the lab coat. all other employee outfits have worked 100% without issue. it just seems to be with this unlocked perk... thank you!
