Have you tried drawing a wall to the outside of the stair?

I can repro this, the landing in the L disappears at certain camera angles in open staircases.

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.

The stairs you used to demonstrate this are stairs that intentionally don't have a back/cover. They weren't created to have one. Have you tried one of the stone stairs? Some of the stairs are meant to be open, and some come with a cover around it. Also know that if you place stairs that don't have a back on it, and then place other stairs on top of it, there won't be that cover. You would have to delete the ones you have and place new ones. Bottom line: The stairs you used don't have a back/cover, and the shape of it doesn't change that.

To dispel doubts, in the screenshot I marked what I mean. I know that not all stairs have walls under them and this is good. I meant the exposed interior of the platform, which is glitch.
