Mist is showing on the floor of the room above a Swimming Pool if the Vents have been placed in the pool. Removing the Vents stops problem. This is a problem if the Pool is indoors or is under the floor of the Lot. Part of the Lot is over the Pool by design. This has only happened after the latest Update.

Kind regards James.

I can confirm that I see this in my game as well.  Will add to our list.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Appeared with version 1.47.49.1020. Mods do not affect the bug.

Hello,

 

With the new patch, pool steam seems to float upwards instead of staying with the pool.

It happens on start up, and periodically throughout the game. The bug is not limited to one save and occurs on all pools with steam.

I tried disabling mods and it made no difference whether or not they were active.

Thank you,

Joss.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the speedy reply, it does seem to be the same issue as the steam stays on the upper floor.

 

Thank you again,

Joss.
