👽 "My Face is Melting," a thread on the Alien face bug no one's fixing

    Wow. -_- For a second, I almost thought they’d fix it.

    @SimGuruNick Please take a look at this if you haven’t already. This is a gamebreaker for occult players.

    I’ve asked him about it on Twitter again. Hopefully, I’ll get an answer.

    Meebling microwaves. :o

    I just created an alien. Guess what happened to his face when I aged him up?

    Nothing. Just the usual changes that happen to non-alien Sims when they age up. I tried it multiple times, at every life stage, and he kept the same face every time. I wish I could post a screenshot right now.

    Has anyone else tested their aliens since the hotfix?

    hi @AyKooChao
    aliens in CAS still distort for me without mods :(
    I went into game to test an alien to see if aging up is fixed, so i baked a cake and had him blow out the candles...

    ...But there was still distortion in his eyes, nose, and chin.

    Do you have any particular mods that might be inadvertently fixing this issue? :(

    @Cement I’m not sure. Nothing I didn’t have before the patch, as far as I know, except for a few that have nothing to do with aliens.

    Now that I think of it, the aliens I tested were randomised from CAS, so they were probably pretty close to the templates anyway. I’ll try aging up a copy of my other Sim’s daughter from pollination and see if she glitches- she looks a lot like him, so I’ll be able to tell if anything goes wrong.

    Do you know if any game changers play with aliens, or at least care about them? If I could get their attention on Twitter, they could let EA know about it. (I’ve tried asking SimGuruNick three or four times, and he’s never answered, and I don’t know who else to ask.)
