An replace this week for The Sims 4, bringing the sport to model 1.97.42, was presupposed to make just a few fixes and tweaks beneath the hood. It has, as a substitute, fucked up a number of faces.

In a thread on EA’s help boards, different customers are posting examples of their very own affected Sims. Some have gotten thinner necks and crossed eyes. Others say their mouths at the moment are clear, or that their eyeballs have sunk again into their skulls, or that their eyelids are tousled whereas blinking. After which there’s ol’ shark tooth right here:
These bothered say it doesn’t matter in the event that they’re utilizing mods or not, or whether or not they can begin new ones or edit their present characters or not, the bugs are persisting. In response, EA say “The group is conscious of & investigating a bug in yesterday’s replace leading to modifications to the face & physique of present Sims”, and that “We’re on it & will maintain you knowledgeable as we work in the direction of a decision.”
