Sul Sul, @KiAunaT_24!!!

First of all, thanks so much for taking the time to report this issue to us!


We already started investigating, but we ran into some obstacles when trying to reproduce. If you could help us answering a couple of questions that came up during the investigation, we would be very grateful:


  • Does this only happen when using the camera that is in your Sim's inventory as seen on the screenshot or does this happen using other cameras as well?
  • What is the exact location of the lot that you took those screenshots in? Which world can we find that lot in?
  • Also, did you observe this on a specific lot or in a specific world only or did you also see this happening in other lots or worlds?

Thanks so much and Happy Simming! Party hat

I had the same bug still don't know what caused it, also pets turned completly black and saves just dissapeared....I tryed everything except reinstalling (so maybe that might work for you?).

Had to start a new game (saved every lot and family first and then moved everything into the new game, but you got to remove all the black photographs from the lots first or else there'll be an error when trying to place them).
