[NEEDS INPUT] Entry frames appear to amplify light from wall fixtures

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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 is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get famous, Get together, City Living, Seasons, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat, Laundry Day, Patio Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place an entry frame in a small space or near a perpendicular wall, and place a wall light near it.
What happens when the bug occurs? The light from the wall light that passes through the entry frame is much brighter than it should be.
What do you expect to see? Light from fixtures should be the same intensity on both sides of the entry.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Entry frames placed near wall lights appear to amplify the light that passes through them, creating bright spots on walls on the other side.

 

a) Sample affected hallway with no wall lights:

b) Wall light placed inside the hallway, works as expected:

c) Wall light placed outside the hallway. Notice the intense light on the other side of the door frame, much brighter than when the light was placed directly on that wall.
