Image is a room with a rounded, lower platform. The leveled ground is wood, and around the curve of the platform is the graphical glitch that shows grass instead of wood.

How often does the bug occur? Constant.

What is your current game version number? 1.33

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves?
Place rounded platform on floor tiles.

What happens when the bug occurs?
Graphic glitch, acts like the platform is made of a diagonal/triangle corner.

What do you expect to see?
Round flooring under the platform... but I guess this occurs because we don't have rounded walls in game. Which means rounded platforms aren't usable in rooms, which makes them usable only on terrain. Is that intentional?

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods?
No, PlayStation doesn't have CC and Mods.

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 newest patch 1.33 added platforms.

I'm on PS4 and also have this issue.

 

When you add rounded platforms in a room which has already been lowered it creates angular borders the height of the surrounding foundation.

 

This error also affects placing flooring which may also not fill in leaving an angular pattern of bare ground. In the below pictures I'd expect to see everything rounded. And the flooring filling in the gaps instead of seeing green grass or empty space.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Graphic Glitch with Curved Platforms

Does anyone think this is different to how the foundation tool works with curved sections? It's always been glitchy like this I think. I'm not saying it's right, just that it's not really anything new.

FYI... the input form is severely bugged also. Can't remove the duplicate form without duplicating it again.

@Psychotps I merged your post with existing thread

As for the template: Yes, it's currently a pain unfortunately but I fixed it.

You need to delete all templates from the comment form to remove the duplicates. Basically just leave the actual form.

Happy Gaming

Id suggest you just change the color of the foundation below the platform to mach, for me it worked just enough to be unnoticeable
