Teeth Outside of Mouth on Female Sims
Problem: Basically what the topic says. On every female Sim I have personally created in either BodyShop or CAS, their TEETH are OUTSIDE of their mouths. Odd, huh?
When I Noticed This: I had just gotten a new computer last week, and I installed Sims 2 EPs/SPs I own on a fresh computer, as well as needed patches. I made a female Sim in BodyShop to my liking, and she looked 100% normal. It was only when I moved her into a lot that her teeth jumped outside of her mouth.
Are all of these sims with this problem created from the same "starter" sim? I've had this problem crop up on some of my females and more rarely on males. It is a sculpting error--meaning by reshaping the mouth and lower jaw, I was able to correct it. However, in all cases, my teeth protrusion problem came up only when the Sim would make certain faces---like smiling or when performing one of the standard conversational facial expressions.
I could correct either by moving all facial features up on the face, then bring down the forehead, and pull up the chin to restore proportion. Or in most cases, I would have to thicken the upper and lower lips separately, and then use the slider to thin out the smile to restore the previous thinner lipped appearance.
I honestly can't tell if you're experiencing some sort of glitch, or if it is a problem with the facial sculpt. From the picture, it looks like the face wasn't sculpted broadly enough to accomodate the teeth. This likely wouldn't show up in Bodyshop, but I have seen it in CAS.
Do the teeth STAY out of the mouth or is this an intermittent problem?
What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.
Usually, in the vast majority of cases, actually going through and doing the steps (doing, not just reading) fixes issues - sometimes you may be asked to remove custom content, or to patch - please rest assured that all of our FAQs have been tested by our staff and volunteers and we wouldn't suggest you do something unless it's been known to fix particular issues.
Please read through all of the FAQs above! Doing only one or two of them (when more exist) will usually result in delays not fixing your particular problem.
On occasion you might be asked to do a long FAQ - please make sure you do all the steps and don't just skip over them. You'll often find that these long FAQs have all the details you need. If nothing in the above FAQs fixes your problem you may post again detail exactly which you have done and which steps failed.
