Please describe the patch or change you made. Since the last update this has been occuring. My game updated on July 28th and this has been occurring since.

I select any pair of eyeglasses for my Sim to wear in CAS (accessed through Create A Household or Plan Outfit, Change Sim, Edit Household, I tried them all just to be sure), and when I enter Live Mode, the lenses are blacked out and they look like sunglasses. They have the same frame style as the eyeglasses I choose, but the lenses are black. This happens with every frame style and has been carrying over across seasons, weather (it's not some cool update to have transition lenses), and outfits/outfit categories.

@juspyke Are you using laptop mode ?

Have you tried repairing your game through Origin yet ?

This comes up every now and then.

@crinrict I repaired my game and turned off laptop mode. My Sim no longer has blacked-out lenses in actual gameplay during Live mode, but her portrait/avatar in the bottom left still displays the dark lenses.

@juspyke Try trashing the localthumbcache file.

Does come back if you turn on laptop mode again ?

@celfenton That's interesting that it's just children for you.

Do you have laptop mode on ?

I merged this with the existing thread on black glasses

Glasses aren't see through bug

★★★ Newbie

I have attached an image as a file to help explain this issue. Basically, when my active household are wearing glasses the see-through texture turns black so they kinda look like sunnies, yet, when other sims wear them they appear normal. This bug comes up with all glasses from cas. 

 

(I have zero mods installed, and currently have no cc in-game)

Glasses turned to sunglasses

★★ Novice

Idk how this happened but almost of the glasses that I put on my sims become sunglasses or blacked out in live mode. Everything is fine in cas but sometimes they black out in live mode. I keep looking for ways to fix it and the most I saw was a patch in 2015 but apparently it’s broken again. Maybe it’s only me but I’m still confused.

I am having the same issue with children only. I turned off laptop mode and now the actual child sim has regular glasses but her icon at the bottom shows dark glasses still.

My sims glasses have turned to sunglasses when in-game. Everything is fine in CAS but the minute I go into live mode they blackout on the screen and in the UI. It's weird but this only happens a couple of times and I don't know how to fix it. sometimes they're fine but other times they blackout. This also happens with my CC eyelashes, they clump up in some games but are fine in the next save. I've tried preparing the game and uninstalling it all together but nothing seems to work. I do know about laptop mode but it slows down my game and the blacked-out glasses still show up in the UI. I hope this gets fixed in a new patch but I've tried asking for help on Twitter but no one's gotten back to me.
