I've found a bug in game which affects sims that are sitting down at tables. They become all dark like this:
I've done some testing and it appears to happen only inside with a fully covering roof and only when there's a table attached to the chair. I've filed a bug report at the official bug reporting site about this.
Is this something you know is happening in your game too?
If it is, please go to the bug report and press the "me too" button to let the developers know how widely spread this bug is.
Again, Thank you allisas for mentioning this! Like I said, I was wondering what was going on with my family. The lighting in-game has been enhanced to a great level in the last patch. I'm finally satisfied. But by dinner we all were changing the light bulbs. I've re-blogged this message at simblr and clicked the "me-too" at the official forum. Thanks again for sending them detailed images of the issues. They can't miss this one.
