Game mode: Singleplayer (likely Online as well)
When a tiger pet is damaged, the “blood” effect never goes away even once the tiger has returned to full health and is out of combat for an extended period of time. It doesn’t appear to be a simple rendering issue either. You can place the tiger on guard, move well outside of the rendering distance and return and it remains bloodied.
A second more cosmetic issue is that, on the tiger at least, the blood looks more like someone spilled a can of bright red paint on it.
I’m not sure if this is exclusively an issue with tigers, or affects other types of pets as well. The hyena pets I have don’t seem to have this problem, and I don’t recall the wolves I’ve had having this problem either.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Tame a tiger
- Have the tiger fight something, and be injured
- Wait for the tiger to completely heal
- The “blood” effect never goes away
