[OPEN] Half wall toppers out of place

[ Edited ]
Game Changer

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? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs installed and patches are current to date.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Draw a half wall and place a topper - the one from Dine Out. (and Get Famous)
What happens when the bug occurs? The topper will either float above the wall or sink down into the half wall. This happens when a half wall is either drawn inside a room or is copied and placed inside a room. Included in this post is a picture showing a half wall with topper drawn outside the build. It also shows what happens when drawn inside a room. I moved the same wall to another spot and the topper stayed put. It cannot be deleted or moved.
What do you expect to see? The wall topper (Dine Out) to place properly.
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. Installed 1.58.63.1010 Patch 12Nov2019. In addition to the patch I started with a clean never played vanilla folder and repaired the game.

@EuphorialQueen I  could reproduce... with the following stipulations:

  • I could delete the trim and the half wall, so that was not an issue for me.
  • After a bunch of testing and found in the end that in my game the foundation seems to be the deciding factor for me:
  1. If I have no foundation the entire trim can be seen:
    1.jpg
  2. If I move up the foundation one click the bottom of the trim cannot be seen:
    2.jpg
  3. If I move up the foundation two clicks the most of the trim cannot be seen:

@SheriGR Exactly the same happens in my game. Affected are the toppers from Dine Out and Get Famous. The small base game toppers cause no problems.

Thanks for the reminder. I added the Get Famous toppers to my report.
@SheriGR  Thank you for testing. I too noticed that foundations or placing half walls below ground level (in basement) made a difference in the topper placement. I did not manipulate the terrain. But I can imagine if a foundation contributes to the issue then terrain manipulation would certainly duplicate the results above.

@EuphorialQueen I tried in my game and terrain height did not effect it, as far as I can tell. You are very welcome - any time!  Coffee cup

Glass pane wall trim bug

★★★ Newbie

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? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? get famous, city living, 4 seasons, jungle adventure, parenthood, outdoor retreat, fitness stuff, vintage glamour stuff, luxury party stuff, and holiday celebration pack.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? create a balcony on a floor above the first, and put the "glass pane wall trim" from the "get famous" pack on it.
What happens when the bug occurs? the trim appears normally, however, the glass paneling appears down on the first floor.
What do you expect to see? the glass paneling on the trim.
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? No

the "glass pane wall trim" had been working normally yesterday (11/12/19) before my game updated, so I presume the issue has something to do with the update.

I wanted to add that I am experiencing this problem as well. I noticed that any foundation above ground level causes any half wall trim to bug out. I have all packs installed and disabled mods. You can recreate the problem easily by putting down a half wall on ground level and apply a half wall trim. When you adjust the foundation to any height, it will cause the trim to anchor down, seemingly.

this is also happening with the Dine Out trim as well. Any trim with an extra part on top seems to be affected

I am seeing the half wall trims in places where there is no (and never was a) half wall. It shows up when I toggle between stories.
