Hello simmers! I recently updated my pc sims 4 game with the latest patch from may 27, 2021. This patch said it would fix the issue if babies were a different skintone in the gallery. I installed the patch but I am still experiencing this issue, does anyone else still have this glitch in their game?

@simply1sonya Is this an existing baby (pre-patch) ? You might need to delete your localthumbcache file. It's also possible that they are not fixed for already existing babies

Thank you! Yes the babies are pre existing, maybe that is the reason.I already deleted my localthumbcache  but I will try that again.

@simply1sonya Can you try a 'fresh' baby to see if it has the same issue still ?

 

 

EDIT: Doing some testing in my game it seems to me it's certain skin tones that are still borked.

@simply1sonya After some more testing I think it's still an issue for some skin tones.

Could you post a picture of yours ?

I'm having the same issue. I updated my game yesterday and my sim had a baby today. I actually used MCCC to make my sim pregnant and give birth immediately. The baby has a light skin tone in-game, but has dark skin in Manage Households. I always delete my localthumbcache file every time I close out the game.

 

But from the way the patch notes were written, I wondered if this specific bug was actually the one addressed. The patch note said, "We have fixed an issue that made Babies’ Skin Tones not match in different parts of Gameplay, like Interaction queues." It doesn't mention household management, so I'm not so sure this particular bug has been fixed yet.

After patch 1.75 my lighter skinned babies still appear black in the menu and manage worlds screenshots, but not in actual gameplay. I am very confused because the patch said that this was fixed. Everything else in the patch works well for me except for this. I have removed my mods to see if there was a problem but the same thing was happening. I have been trying to find a solution for this for months and now that there actually is one it doesn't even work for me. Everyone else seems to have had their problem fixed but I am still getting issues.

@joyofliving37 It was this issue but it looks like that they didn't' fix all the skin tones. In my game, some are fine now, others aren't.

that goes for both the household manager picture as well as the ingame icon.
