One other important fix coming: Columns were being forced to be medium wall height; no matter the actual wall height. Kind of lame, huh? Well, *wand waggle* *spellcast* *poof* FIXED! Columns now watch your wall height. Ahhhh - that’s better.

Fixed in Patch 1.55.108

Happy Gaming

If you change the size of a room, the columns change to the right height as well (as a simple workaround for now) Standard smile

I drew a fence through the columns and it shortened the columns back to regular heights!

The columns seem to automatically set to middle wall height; i.e. if you have shortest wall height they will appear too tall, and on the tallest height, they will be too short. A work around for it seems to be doing things like placing/removing walls/fences, or adding/removing/raising/lowering foundations; however, this only works for columns that have already been placed.

This worked for me as well- fixed the columns right up.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Column's Showing Through Roof

It seems like the workarounds work on each floor not the lot as a whole. So if you have columns on multiple levels you must apply the workaround to each level.

You also need to apply the workaround each time you re-load the same lot, it doesn't stick.
