[NEEDS INPUT] Invisible foundation with enclosed fence around

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living, Seasons, Laundry Day
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Build a house and add a fence around it. If the fence is completely closed, the foundation of the house inside the fence disappears. If you delete a tile of the fence, the foundation is back to normal.
What happens when the bug occurs? Fundation of the house inside the fence disappears.
What do you expect to see? Foundation should be normal even if there is a fence around the house.
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. Problem appeared after the new patch in november 2020.

You can see in one of the pictures attatched, the house appears to be floating, since the foundation is not visible. In the other picture, the foundation looks alright, because one tile of the fence was deleted.

I noticed that the problem happens when the fence is placed before the house is raised. Can you please also try the following steps?

- build a square (and leave it to the ground level)

- add a fence around it (like in the pictures attatched to the post)

- raise the house foundation

- delete the floor inside the fence area

Oh I see you made the entire house and yard have a foundation then created the yard by deleting the floor on the foundation?  In that case I would pretty much expect the behaviour in your screenshot!   Interesting effect but maybe you could see if you can use it for something?

I can repro this if the fence is touching the wall and is also on a foundation. The foundation disappears inside the enclosed area:

You need to build the fence first then the house. Doing it this way doesn't enclose the fence in a 'room' so a floor doesn't appear. You can then raise the house and the fence stays put so the foundation looks normal:

I've made a much more elaborate design for a Cathedral Basilica that has this same problem that occurred right after the Nov 2020 update (Well shortly after but no other changes until I noticed it). I'm guessing the platforms are what caused this since that deals with foundations and levels. I'm considering ways to fix this without having to completely redo the whole cathedral so if it could be fixed that'd be great.
