I'm not sure when it happens, if it's random or related to sims, npc's or household members, travelling back and forth from the apartment, to a career or somewhere else. This is in the Spice Market, in the red building. The shadow keeps appearing in front of the elevator.

I have this pack for almost 2 months now and I thought it was an issue with the CC i used to have but it clearly isn't.

Re: [TO TEST] [CL] Weird shadow appears on the front of the elevator

I was able to duplicate this in my game.  It happens when a resident sim heads off to work.  I also noticed that there is a black shadow that is briefly placed on the floor as well when a sim uses the elevator to go downstairs.  It appears to be a graphical glitch during the transition that gets cleaned up by the end of the transition.  I think what happens when the sim goes to work is a failure to clean up the glitch.  I think it is supposed to be the shadow cast by the sim's feet.  When the sim returns home from work, the shadow is finally cleaned up.  Will add to the list.

I noticed this when my Sims moved to 1 Torendi Tower Penthouse. I have not yet checked to see if it happens anywhere else. It does happen to both my Sims. One is the Chief of Police and the other is an Internet Superstar. It doesn't seem to affect gameplay at all. It's just weird.
 
I do have some CC in the game - all clothing. I removed them and this is still happening.
 
 
Anyone else?

This is a known and very old apartment bug.
