Roof glitch after the November update

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Seasons , Cats and Dogs , City Living , Discover University , Snowy Escape , Parenthood , Spooky Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When placing the roof on a house, the roof goes though the walls on the first/seconf storie of the house.
What happens when the bug occurs? The roof goes though the walls on the first/second storie, making the floor complety unuseable.
What do you expect to see? A roof that doesn't make the floor unuseable.( like the first screenshot )
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The patch of 10 november

For example , I build a house before the update of 11/10 , where the roofs wasn't clipping though the walls. ( see  screenhot 1) . After the update , I was messing around with the new platform tool ( which removes the walls around the platform ), which lead to the roof clipping though the entire floor( see screenshot 2 )  , but normally when you put the wall back , The roof doesn't clip anymore , now it did , it goes though the walls ( see screenshot 3 )  . This also happens with new house I build.And happens in every world ( i tested ) 


Roofing is  already hard  ( to make it look good ) , but now it is impossible to make a good roof and a usable first/second storie.

Hi all, not sure if this is the same issue as OP, but it seems a few other threads with roof clipping issues similar to mine have been merged with this one. I'm specifically having issues with the round/penta/hexa/octagonal roofs used with foundations. Without a foundation, all roofs act as expected and don't clip into the adjacent room (see "No Foundation" image). Once you add a foundation, these rounder roofs clip into the room (see "Max Foundation" image). Even raising the foundation a small amount causes issues. For example, the problem becomes visible for medium height walls after raising the foundation only two levels (see "Foundation Level 2" image). You can raise the foundation a bit higher with tall walls without issue, but ultimately, all wall heights are affected. Makes it pretty difficult to build a castle with octagonal spires on a cliff aha


The same issue is happening for my sister. We're both on Mac, running version, no mods or cc. I noticed this issue yesterday, she noticed it two months ago, but it seems someone else had this issue back in December 2019 (bug report on 8 point roof clipping), so not sure if I can tie it back to any packs or patches. I've tried repairing my game, but it didn't fix the issue.
