Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Find a sim with a dark skin tone
What happens when the bug occurs? The dark skinned sims in the game look like they have houndstooth designs on their skin.
What do you expect to see? The normal grainy texture on their skin.

Some lighting makes it show up worse than others, but it is always there on these sims with dark skin tone.

Re: Houndstooth Pattern on Sims Skin


@crinrict  the second picture of the #3 poster looks the same. You can see the pattern on the female sims arms. The other pictures look the way the dark skin tones looked before, just mottled and not very nice. The pattern on them is new.
