Fixed an issue in which placing Mirrors directly opposite Doors would create a visual
glitch in which walls and borders would disappear around them and well it was quite
spooky to be honest, glad we solved that one!

Fixed in Patch 1.77.131/1.44

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

@brogle321 But, hey, the doors and windows are reflected. How much you wanna bet this is related to the "fix" to make the doors and windows reflect correctly in mirrors?

Thank you for posting this so promptly. Now I'm just keeping my fingers and toes crossed that my game doesn't unexpectedly quit before the next patch comes along which actually fixes the mirrors.

The same thing is happening in my game. It's a brand new save. I found it interesting that an interior door reflected in the mirror looked like it lead outside, with even  a roof section showing. But iwth  walls down, the  wall  around the door was visible

 

First screenshot: Reflected window, with walls up.

Second:  Door, walls up.

Third: same door,  walls down.  All are taken in the bathroom of the original  Carpophagus Corner huose.

Lovely!  Sounds like the conditional was the wrong way round.  Easy to do when you're fixing code quickly :D

 

Anyway, it's a Me Too from me!

I am also having this problem, now instead of not reflecting the opening in the arch, the reflections breaks all the walls all the way to the outside. I just want my mirrors to look good they are one of my fav decorating objects Disappointed

I had no problem with the mirrors before the patch. Nothing disappeared. But with the latest update parts of the walls disappear like, already, mentioned my several others. Some furniture disappear as well. The flowers are standing on a coffee table but you only see the flowers in the mirror.

Noticed this bug while recording some house tours for YT. I think I could have lived with the clipping walls before the patch... Disappointed

For what it's worth, I've noticed mirrors work as intended when you bring the walls down all the way (End key).
