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? 1.72.28.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place a frog down in the world
What happens when the bug occurs? Everything but the glass of the tank as well as the shadow and eyes of the frog are invisible,
What do you expect to see? The normal full tank and the frog inside it.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The bunk bed patch.

I didn't see anyone else report this so I figured I better. I was playing my game for the first time since the bunk bed patch and I noticed something odd about the frogs I had placed down as decorations in my sims house. They were invisible except for their eyes and their shadows as well as every part of the tank except for the glass. When I tried to place other kinds of frogs down from my inventory it was effecting them to. I have no idea what would effect this, I have mods but have not added any to my game since the last time I played. I will remove what I have and see if it makes a difference.

Invisible Fish and Frogs

★★★ Newbie

I noticed yesterday that my sim's frogs' tank was completely gone and all you could see was the eyes of the frog, I was trying to build an aquarium wall today and the fish were also invisible, they were in the fish tank's inventory but they weren't visible, I tried turning the light on and off, taking the fish out and buying new ones, buying a new fish tank but nothing worked. I do play with mods so it is a possibility it could be an issue with them but I don't know what could be interfering with them, the only thing I haven't tried is repairing the game which I'm doing now and will update if that fixes it otherwise I am completely stumped.

@crinrict Yes I do since I am on a laptop, but as I said before the patch they looked fine. I will turn off laptop mode and check. I will also look at the fish in my tanks too and see if I also have that problem.

@Bloodluvingirl Just curious if it's a laptop mode issue. Would def count that as a bug if it is.

@crinrictYeah they show up when you are not in laptop mode but they are invisible in laptop mode. I checked the fish too, and they to are invisible in the tank in laptop mode now. I have no idea why they are like this now, as I said
before they were both fine before the patch.

@DrDeadworth It's a laptop mode issue. If your machine can handle it, turn laptop mode of, otherwise you need to wait until EA fixes this.
