@dulamass Yes I can confirm this. But the workaround is to stop using cutaway foundations in this way and instead sink a platform. Just as good really.

Do you think it is the same as this issue? https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Multiple-Platform-Glitches-on-Underground-Levels/m-p/9738370

@BluebellfloraOn face value not similar enough imho to merge the threads, imho, at least not without more evidence. In my test this was specific to using a foundation, while the one you link to doesn't mention foundations at all. I've had the scenario in the link working ok in my game, actually, with traversable stairs connecting the levels. I'll see if I can offer anything in that thread

@Bluebellflora Yeah I am pretty sure now it's not the same problem.

I built the Beaker house some time ago in Sims 4. The foundation surrounding Nervous's room is now invisible, and I didn't even use the invisible foundation swatch. I decided to replace it with platforms, thinking it'll work. Wrong. It threw off my entire design as placing the stairs removes the fence, and putting the fence back deletes the stairs. Disappointed as I worked hard on this house, hope it gets fixed soon Frown

I've just noticed this in my game. The lot I'm visiting is in Willow Creek. The sunken living room created by lowering the floor down, has invisible platform walls and I can see into the basement.

*Edit* So, I took one of the Sims that was visiting to a different lot and back, and it went back to normal (the half wall trim, that's been doing the same thing forever, isn't invisible anymore either after leaving and coming back)..

I have this problem in the karaoke bar in San Myshuno and the new haunted house that came with Paranormal Stuff.
