[FIXED] [IL] Mermaid genetics dont work
[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make a mermaid have a baby either with another mermaid or a human sim.
What happens when the bug occurs? The child gets a townie face, the game seems to pull from the same pool of faces as it seems to be the same ones that come up again and again.
What do you expect to see? That my mermaids are able to pass on their genetics correctly and that their children look like them.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed Island Living

My sim had triplets with her merman husband in my save, I was excited to see the babies but when they were born I immediately noticed something was wrong. I then continued to test it several times, with and without my mods installed and it Always occured unless I turned the father human. This is very upsetting as it basically makes mermaids completely unplayable as anything but single households or in games where you don't want family gameplay. I've attached some pictures below to show what I mean. (Parents + their children. Keep in mind some of these pics were taken before I removed mods but one is after as well)
