[NEEDS INPUT] Handsome Knuckled Banister turns black in laptop mode

[ 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? 1.62.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Expansion Packs and All Game Packs. Majority Of Stuff Packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Stair railings goes black at random every time you move the camera and zoom out. This only happens when the laptop mode is switched on.
What happens when the bug occurs? Laptop Mode is switched on - stair railings go black when you move the camera.
What do you expect to see? Stair railings shouldn't go black and I always used laptop mode.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. After the recent update, I haven't seen this before until now. I prefer to use laptop mode for better gaming performance.

Screenshot as attached. I prefer having the laptop mode switched on even though this can be fixed with laptop mode switched on.

 

@FlyingPotato659 Correction: It can be fixed with laptop mode SWITCHED OFF.

Hi, that is one of the pre-made houses form the screenshot in Willow Creek, the railing should be the same color as the rails on the foundation.

@FlyingPotato659 and these are the only railings you're having issues with or does it happen to others ?

 

EDIT: I can duplicate it for that railing but others I've tried looked fine so I've edited the title to make it about these specific ones. Let me know if there's others.

@crinrict  Yeah,, I just tried to change it into a different design of railing - it doesn't cause any problems.

 

Just seems to be that particular design playing funny. I will just avoid using that railing for now! Standard smile 

 

Will let you know if any other railings do the same

 

Thanks!
