[NEEDS INPUT] Platforms/Floors Disappear

[ 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? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything excluding snowy escape, nifty knitting, fitness, luxury party, my first pet, spooky stuff, and romantic garden..
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Two adjoining platforms one level apart, but in different rooms can cause the floor to become transparent. There is a hacienda uploaded in my library that experiences the bug.
What happens when the bug occurs? The floors become transparent, and when the mouse moves over each section of platform the other sections will become visible again, but the selected one stays transparent. It depends on the angle/distance of the camera in game as well.
What do you expect to see? I'm in the middle of decorating a room already platformed in build mode, then the floor starts flickering and becoming transparent based off of where the camera is and where my cursor is.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. November 2020 patch

I'm having this problem too, except I've found that the floors only disappear when I add windows. I took out all of the windows and it's fine now but like, I want the windows? Lol it's also only effecting this one building, out of 3 on this lot.

My issue eventually went away, I think it has something to do with item placement or windows? I just kept decorating and it eventually went back to normal without any reloading. I can force the issue with some success by moving the camera with just split platforms with walls and windows around it though.

Same here. The floor at level 2 are built, the ceiling of level 1 are built. From certain angle, the floor will just disappear exposing level 1 and I totally cant place/move any item at all, it will just snap down to level 1. Have a look at the screenshot, photo1 shows the sauna using the flooring tile (Now and Zen). at certain angle it just disappeared and exposed the flooring from level 1 (stone) and the fence.

@RyanFooHsieh Talking of floors disappearing, today a roof disappeared. I mean it was still there cos I could see the roof trim and the attic walls. but the whole texture had vanished (it wasn't glass either). I actually had to use the texture tool to click on it and reapply a surface

@IngeJones I managed to find a temporary solution to my problem. Remove level 2 floor and re-built the floor. I just cannot put any type flooring until I've done furnishing the room. Once any type of flooring been put, the bug came back.
