Re: Basement bug on Chateau peak

I was able to duplicate this issue (to an extent) in my game.  Specifically, when trying to build a basement on the right side of the home, the game elevated terrain around the basement area.  However, in my game, this was a slight elevation.  Subsequently building an additional basement under the home elevated terrain around the home a bit.  The "Flatten Lot" button in terrain tools would not reduce the terrain height; nor could I reduce it manually.  Only deleting the basement allowed me to flatten the terrain.  Will add to our list.

I love to troubleshoot and help resolve issues, but I do not work for EA and am doing this on a volunteer basis. Please be patient, as sometimes life happens, and it may take me a bit to get back to you.
