[NEEDS INPUT] Lights don't come on in rooms that have stairs

[ 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? Island living. Realm of magic. Get famous. Seasons. Get To Work. Cats and Dogs. Outdoor retreat. Dine Out. Parenthood. Spa Day. Laundry Stuff pack. Kids room stuff pack. Bowling stuff pack. Discover University. Perfect Patio. Cool Kitchen. Get Together. Holiday celebration pack. City Living.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? By going into build mode and adding stairs to a room with lights.
What happens when the bug occurs? Am having a glitch in the sims 4. Whenever I add stairs to a room the lights go off. I tried to put the lights back on by clicking on them and pressing turn all lights on. But this did not work. I tried adding different stairs but it still did not work. I also fixed my game in origin and that also unfortunately did not fix the issue. This happens anytime I add stairs to a room. The lights suddenly go off and the room goes dark and the lights wont come back on unless I remove the stairs. Not sure if this might be a bug. Please help. Thank you :-)
What do you expect to see? For me to add stairs to any room in my sims house and the lights stay on.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Please help. Thank you :-)

I've seen this too. At a guess I would say stairs count as their own sort-of-room, as i had Sims standing on the top of the stairs, lights didn't go on, the stepped forward, lights did come on.

@MeltingPenguins Any lot ?

This has been an issue on the honeydew fields lot. Not sure if it's fixed with the other fix they made so I'm curious if it's related

@staceysimsgirl Could you make a list ? Maybe it has to do with the ones that have uneven territory
