[OPEN] Random generated sims not using skin detail category items

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.58.63
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to CAS and press the randomize button at the bottom of the screen or play the game until it generates new random townie sims.
What happens when the bug occurs? The game never uses anything from "Skin Details" category (both Live mode and in CAS) I had custom skins/eyelashes and some nails in this category before (in version 1.54.120) and it worked fine. Tried this with and without mods with same results.
What do you expect to see? Skin Detail category items to be applied to sims like they used to.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed the 1.58.63 patch.

Tried to reinstall and repair the game too but this issue persists. The game seems to simply ignore the Skin Detail category completely when creating new random sims.

@JKK_Xtreme Tried this, got several sims with moles and freckles as well as other skin details.

You said it's the custom ones that you don't get but since you said you tested without mods, you are also not getting any game ones ?

Yeah, they are never applied to any of the newly generated sims not even the games own ones. I will try another game repair and start a new game to see if it resolves it.

Repairing the game had no effect, the issue remains and Skin Details aren't being applied to newly generated sims. Checked 16 generated families and none of them had skin details applied.

@JKK_Xtreme what if you only randomize face ?

 

EDIT: Never mind, I screwed up.

 

Seems I pressed the randomize from gallery button.

 

 

I'll handle this one tomorrow. Need to call it a night

@demon25970 I don't have information on what gets fixed when.

It's not a very popular issue.

@crinrict Thank you for the quick response. Believe me, for some users this issue is very critical. I hope EA can fix in the nearest future.
