Get this, after the recent update I noticed that households with five sims or more in my inventory are smaller than households with four sims or less. I wish I could show what I'm talking about but no matter what I do I can't get the file of this image in here, so anyone who sees this just has to believe me.

@RaniaKpop That's normal cause of the space available. Depending on your resolutions the portraits get smaller if you have more Sims to fit them properly on the screen.

Your screenshot is probably too big and you just need to make it smaller to upload.

 

NVM, thought you were talking about the portraits.

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs. Kits: Carnaval Streetwear, Moonlight Chic, Desert Luxe.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Move sims between households, make sure to at least make one household with 5 or more sims.
What happens when the bug occurs? The household thumbnail turns tiny.
What do you expect to see? The household thumbnail being the size as before the patch.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Patch 1.99.264.1030 (18th of July 2023 patch)

This only happens when moving sims between households. Untouched households keep their correctly sized thumbnail.

 

What it looks like after moving sims between households to create a household that is 5+ sims:

That's not exactly what I'm getting at, what's happening with me is that whenever I edit the household (say change an outfit or the appearance of one or all the sims) not adding more to the household, the images gets smaller. Again I wish I could put an image in this reply but I'm being told that the file is too big to be put in despite my efforts to make the file small enough to fit.

This might actually be by design cause once horses are added to the household, there might be an issue with larger families.

Is this pre-patch game or did you start a new one ?

@RaniaKpop OK. just asking cause mine are smaller without editing anything but I started a new save. So maybe yours only starts reverting to the new look once you edit them.

That's doesn't exactly account for the households with four sims or less, they seem fine.

@RaniaKpop Yes, I'm just theorizing here but the more Sims and horses and whatever you have the more crowded it gets so maybe they just generally made the household picture smaller for larger households so horses can fit in.
