[OPEN] Certain columns do not fade in Live mode

[ Edited ]

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? 1.45.62.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In build/buy mode, Place the Stand Tall Column and the Stable as a Brick Column and then switch to live mode. Move the camera close to the columns.
What happens when the bug occurs? The columns don't fade from view, even when the camera is right on top of them. This is similar to a bug that we had with multiple columns that got fixed (see here https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Columns-don-t-fade/m-p/6959372#M70046).
What do you expect to see? The columns should use the same fade behavior as all other columns.
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. New in Seasons.

No images necessary for this one.

Stable as a brick column doesn't fade

★★★★ 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? 1.50.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1: Load a lot. 2: Place the "stable as a brick column" anywhere. 3: go into live move, and move camera near, or over the column.
What happens when the bug occurs? The column doesn't fade with the camera movement.
What do you expect to see? For the column to fade out of view, when the camera moves close, or over it.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I had never used the "stable as a brick" column, before, but after using it, I noticed that it doesn't fade as the camera moves close to it. At the time, I was using mods, but after removing my mods folder, the bug still persisted.

 

 

I did see one other known bug report, here but that report is for another column, so I thought maybe I should mention the one that I was using, also.

Re: Stable as a brick column doesn't fade

@BlueRafael merged and updated original post to include both columns.
