My family of mermaids have no tails in mermaid form. Additionally, the one mermaid who does have a tail, hers changes every time she shifts to mermaid form (it's been black, blue and green, and now red). No option to change a tail shows up in CAS via boolprop or in the Change Sim option for a mirror.

@concertviolin Did you try clicking on the torso so you get the menu ? There should then be tails you can add.

Good morning! 

 

Yes, I did. I'm some pictures here. The tail option shows up on the dad, but not the three offspring. I click on swim trunks and sandles and the legs will populate and they wave around like the tail would, the feet distorting.

 

Thanks so much for reaching out. I hope you can help!

@concertviolin Might be a different issue than the one I merged your post in then.

Could you upload the family to the gallery ?

Same Frown 

i just got this yesterday and this is the first time I’ve tried to make a mermaid.  I waited for the sim to be halfway through a lot of skills etc. Before changing to the next part of my story line.  It’s just half a sim. In CAS, in game.  So bummed.  She swims like a mermaid but she’s half a sim.  Nothing from the waist down when in water or when looking in CAS

I don't know since what time this problem startet. It was not a problem at the beginning of Isle Living. In the beginning I noticed first after Magic Realms, I think. I could solve the missing Tail in Cas now. In the beginning of Isle Living it was no problem eating kelp, running into water and getting the tail. Ist doe not work any longer now.

Fixed an issue that made aged up Mermaid Teen Sims have their Mermaid Tails disappear in Create a Sim and while Swimming.

Fixed in Patch 1.58.63

I updated to version 1.58.69.1010 today and aged up a mermaid for the first time from YA to Adult - Her tail is now invisible during game-play when swimming in the ocean, but is still visible in CAS and when bathing in the tub. I have Discover University, Island Living, Seasons, StrangerVille, Laundry Day Stuff, Holiday Celebration Stuff, and Grim's Ghoulish Guitar.

@Axs2640Sxa1119 If it's visible in CAS but not in the game, then it sounds like a different issue than this one.

What happens if you change the tail in CAS, does it become visible ?
