@Arkainmon  I saw this for the first time in my game today so it is probably due to a recent change (12/12/19 patch maybe?) but I can't be sure as I can't remember when I last sent a sim there. It may be related to the changes that were made about sims showing up in the Realm in really outrageous outfits.   It only seems to affect NPCs though because my playable aliens that were there were in the cc "alien" clothes that I have them wear.  I do keep all my aliens in alien form in my game and I have quite a few so I don't see many NPCs there very often.  I only saw one NPC there and the rest were playables today.   I haven't seen any NPC aliens in any of the other worlds though so I don't know if it is happening there or not.  BTW, I play on a PC if that has any bearing on the issue.

No I know this bug has been around since at least June of last year, I just didn’t a) realize it was a bug until a few months ago , and b) was quite surprised no one else had caught said bug before now.

I've had this problem recently, originally i thought it was due to cc clothing but having removed them and all mods it still happens.

Adding another bug under here as noticed it’s related to this one.


As a result of this bug, one of the households from Maxis’ online gallery is also bugged. More specifically the “Sul Sul” household.More specifically the Sim called Aileen Rauvu. You not only in CAS loose her default alien form every time you download this household as townies from the gallery for the first time, but you also lose her featured “disguise” which is from the get to work trailers, as it then is replaced with a random generated human disguise instead of the purple alien disguise.


The current work around for this bug is you have to down load this house hold twice into you world from the CAS mode and delete the initial first copy.
