Re: [NEEDS INPUT/A] New foundation disappears

[ Edited ]

@emevens Sorry for your frustration, as I am seeing this also in my game. I have been having issues as well with flooring disappearing/deleting, and sometimes it leaves an odd gaping hole. Sometimes this is like a strange greenscreen effect only at certain angles (as in pic #1), and sometimes it's at all angles and just a strange hole with no flooring (as in pic #2) I do have both on video, if that becomes helpful at some point. Just let me know if you want the link.


When it is only at certain angles (#1) it was when I had built a porch/landing and removed the walls/ceiling from it afterward (and that is only over land). It looks like it has the default cement floor at most angles, and at certain angles it is a strange gaping hole.If I add tile floor or re-add those deleted walls the hole goes away, but it returns if I delete the porch 's outside wall. This is all definitely not normal. I use this technique a lot for certain porches/decks. Also if I add the default cement to that 'porch' it doesn't fill the hole. It needs to be a different flooring. And it apparently involves combining with 'Construction-Quality Concrete' flooring... but not with all of the walls. I did not try re-adding the cement myself, though.

This occurred while I was doing foundation experiments. This 'hole' appeared when I made a room over flooring with a glass tile so I could see the foundation below. It showed at all angles.

It spread as I added a room on the first floor - after it removed the stilt foundation and I had to replace. missing-floor-5-WEB.jpg

Same problem, graphics are all on the highest settings. It seems to be especially bad with decks.

Disappearing Floor Glitch

★ Novice

Yesterday I downloaded Island Living and everything was fine. But now I’m midway building a house on one of the lots in Sulani and my floor disappears! As of now it’s only the floors that are in the water.. When the floor is gone in one of the effected rooms, I can’t place anything there. I’ve tried updating and repair and have taken out broken cc/mods, but no luck. Is it a glitch, does more people have the same problem or am I just crazy?

I'm also having this problem. The stilt foundation disappears if I'm too close or if I hover above the furniture.

I am also having this problem. Decks over water will appear or disappear when the camera is rotated.

It's related to the new glass floor tiles.  When I remove the glass floors, the problem goes away.
