[ARCHIVED] Shadow Movement Bug

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Since the last update (1.13) the shadows in my game are really bugged. They "teleport" every minute, instead of making a soft movement, as you can see in this video: https://youtu.be/OLBWqvaXpas

I have no mods affecting time, shadows or whatever, and my graphics specs are on ultra. Tried repairing and disabling the mods too and it stays the same. Tried changing the game to 32 bit too!

Are there other people having this issue? And how can i fix it?

 

UPDATE: still seeing it even with the 12/17 update.

UPDATE 2: I changed my graphic card to AMD R7 370 2gb and I'm still having this issue.

 

My PC:

i5 2310 2,9GHz

8GB DDR3 1333MHz

GTX 550 Ti 1GB 192bit

AMD R7 370 2GB 256bit

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Also, The Sims 4 and the OS are in a SSD

 

UPDATE 3:

New specs:

AMD Ryzen 5 1600

8GB DDR4 2666MHz

GTX 1070

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

 

And still having the issue... Teeth bared

Could you try changing back to 32 bit to see if you have the same issue ?

 

Could be connected to the flickering issue many are seeing.

I can verify that I am seeing the same shadow jumping in my game also.  I never paid enough attention to the shadows pre-patch to know if it was going on then though.

I've noticed the "mechanical" shadow movements too after the first December patch, it's still the same after the latest patch.

I don't see this now in my game or else I'm not looking close enough. And I did have it with the 12/4 patch.

Still seeing it.  Think the delay between jumps might be a bit longer than it was before, but it's definitely still happening.
