[BY DESIGN] Graphics Glitch - Several Fountains Clip Through Floor

[ Edited ]
Hero (Retired)

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place one of the fountains listed below on a level above ground level with flooring that is open to the area below (such as on a balcony).
What happens when the bug occurs? The bottom of the fountain pokes through the floor below it.
What do you expect to see? The bottom of the fountain should not be visible below the floor.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

The following fountains clip through the floor (observed if you place them on a deck above ground level):

  • Falling Water Modern Fountain
  • Triple Tiered Fountain
  • Spitting Fish Fountain
  • Vibe Gate Fountain (Perfect Patio pack)
  • Spherical Emitter (Spa pack)
  • All three waterfalls from the spa pack

See image demonstrating the issue here.

I've been told that this issue is by design.

Still clips as of the 9/24/15 patch.  Adjusted title and post to include all of the fountains that have this glitch.
