Toddlers all look the same

★★ Apprentice

since updating today (6-14), when babies age up to toddlers they all have the exact same facial features. eye color and hair color change, but shape of eyes, nose, mouth, etc doesn’t change. even when playing with genetics in CAS, the toddlers look nothing like their parents and all look the same despite being from different families. 

 

weirdly, when aged up to child and teen, the sim suddenly looks like they should. anyone else having this toddler glitch?

@corinnadiana Are you using mods/cc in your game ? If so, have you tested without them ?

@crinrict attached a few to this post. all toddler facial features remain the same even when playing different families. probably doesn’t look TOO weird to someone who’s not familiar with the families, but it seems like toddler genetics are essentially not working or changing — even when randomizing in CAS. they appear to be “stuck” on the same presets for every toddler.

Hey sorry I am completely new to forums but I am having the exact same issue right now! It started since the patch.

 

Some things I noticed:

 

- It doesnt affect toddlers who I had already aged up in previous saves.

- but it DOES affect babies from my pre-exisiting saves that I hadn't aged up yet.

- Any toddlers created in CAS have the exact same face as what the OG poster posted as well.

I have this issue too. 

After the latest update a toddler was born to my legacy family, when they aged up to Toddler their skin tone and eye colour was wildly different to their parents and they resembled the example pics above.  I don't have any saves/tray files etc to share as I rolled back the save because of this issue
