[NEEDS SAVES] Stuff deleted when painting walls/ half walls

[ 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? 1.60.54.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? As far as I know, make a functional micro home thats fully furnished. Live in it for a little and then try and paint the walls
What happens when the bug occurs? Some of the stuff in the main part of the home is deleted.
What do you expect to see? My house hold Items not to be deleted
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. The january 2020 update and installed Tiny Living

To be clear, I have had my cc and mods uninstalled for a while and have it so its not allowed in my game. I am also not sure how to record while in build/buy so the screenshot attached is me trying to paint the half wall in my micro home that i missed and some of the items showing up as if i had the hammer activated.

Windows disappearing

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.70.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats & Dogs, City Living, University, Get Famous, Get to Work, Get Together, Island Living, Seasons, Dine Out, Outdoor Retreat, Parenthood, Realm of Magic, Spa Day, Laundry Stuff, Movie Hangout, My First Pet, Nifty Knitting, Tiny Living, Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Build/Edit Lot in Sulani, move or edit/delete a wall with windows placed on surrounding walls.
What happens when the bug occurs? When trying to move, edit or delete a wall, random windows will delete. This occurs to windows on a completely different wall to the one being edited as well as windows on the wall being edited.
What do you expect to see? Windows should stay where they are or move when a wall is being pushed in/out. They shouldn't disappear, especially on walls that haven't been edited.
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 

I've only noticed this happening when building on a raised lot in Sulani. In the photos, you can see I've pulled the wall out, and the windows to the right have disappeared, and a window further right on a completely separate wall has also disappeared.

@crinrict I wasn't when doing this. I have just tested it using moveobjects and didn't have any problems.

@niamhrj 

 

I took a look at this in a test build as close as I could make it to what you show in your pictures.  My windows stayed put and didn't disappear.  But I have had it happen on some of my builds before so I know it does happen.  I've found that a lot of things in build happen depending on the order in which you do things like your disappearing windows.  Placing an object like a stair will wipe out windows and other wall hanging things even though one would think that it shouldn't.  So the best advice I can offer is to find what works for you when you build so you don't have to keep redoing things. 

 

Hope this helps.
