Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? Norsk
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In San Myshuno, delete one of the top apartments. After that, try to place a staircase.
What happens when the bug occurs? I cannot place staircases in any top apartment in San Mysuno.
What do you expect to see? Being able to place stairs again.
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. After I installed Get Famous, I deleted one of the top apartments to start from scratch, but then I couldn't place any staircases.

I've tried to delete the Origin cache (after contacting support), restarting the game, started a new save etc. Nothing works.

Re: Stairs bugging in San Myshuno.

@SivILCC I was able to duplicate this issue in my game.  This problem applies not only to penthouse apartments but to any multi-story apartment.  If you bulldoze the apartment, you will be unable to place stairs unless you first redraw room(s) in which to place them or place them against the edge of the apartment.  The error message that appears is "Bottom of stairs are off lot" and the visual shows a red triangle far overhead.  Will add to our list.

I love to troubleshoot and help resolve issues, but I do not work for EA and am doing this on a volunteer basis. Please be patient, as sometimes life happens, and it may take me a bit to get back to you.

Were you able to place them after you built the rooms again? I don't think I could do it, but I will check again tomorrow and see.
