Some Mounted Fish look robotic and flicke

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous; Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure; Cool Kitchen Stuff & Movie Hangout Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Mount Pufferfish, Tuna, Cichlid, Angelfish, and Discus and pull out of inventory and onto a wall.
What happens when the bug occurs? Completely a visual bug. After pulling the mounted fish out of my Sim's inventory, I noticed some problems with the looks of these fish. The plaques on mounted Pufferfish and Tuna flicker when moving the camera. The Cichlid, Angelfish, and Discus look entirely robotic.
What do you expect to see? The plaques on mounted Pufferfish and Tuna flicker when moving the camera. The Cichlid, Angelfish, and Discus look entirely robotic.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

I've taken a screenshot of my game, and highlighted the problem fish. It's not a big deal; something I noticed on my recent playthrough!

Re: [TO TEST] Some Mounted Fish look robotic and flicker

@TheBrendgame I tried to reproduce this in my game and couldn't.  From your screen shot, it looks like some corruption to me.  If you haven't already, please try the following steps: 1) remove all mods/CC, 2) clear your cache, 3) repair the game via Origin, 4) start a new save, and 5) test the issue in the new save.

I did all the steps and tested the issue in a new save once but had the same issue reappearing. I tried again, making sure that I had done everything correctly and they came out just fine when I made another new save. Seems like everything is resolved; thanks for your help!

Sorry for the inconvenience.
