Sim Clothing Glitch

★★★ Newbie

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? Cats & Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, Toddler Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack, Grim's Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure, it just happens to random npcs or created sims when they spawn.
What happens when the bug occurs? All of the sim's outfits are glitched so that their body seemingly comes through or is implemented into the clothes (as if it's a pattern or colour.)
What do you expect to see? The clothes glitched and the skin either showing through or being part of the clothing/
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

The files provided is one of my created sims, not an npc sim. Her entire outfit is CC but when changed onto one of her outfits that isn't CC the problem still persists. I've removed all mods that may cause the natural sim censorship to not be available.

Hi @HoloItsMeStur 


moving this to tech for troubleshooting


This is usually caused by a custom content skin or faulty clothing which can affect you even if you're not using them.



Custom content can get outdated with patches. If it works when you remove your mods folder, then one or more mods/cc is no longer compatible with the game and you have to find those. Use the 50/50 method:

Good Luck

@HoloItsMeStur I had this problem for a while, but after deleting conflicting files, it didn’t go away. The file that caused the glitch happened to be a default eye recolor from Kijiko cat food. I hope this helps some!

It's not a bug in the game. It's bad CC. Remove ALL CC from the sim and the problem will stop. This includes skins, eyes, everything.

You'll need to find out what's causing the glitch.
