★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Base Game only
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try going in game, placing just a box and putting windows
What happens when the bug occurs? I have a lot of cc in game I thought that could’ve been the reason the window lighting is showing up outside of the room I took all my cc out and repaired the game went back in with no cc and still the lighting showed up outside of the room. I don’t know what to do
What do you expect to see? I expect for the lighting that comes through the window to show up in the room instead of outside of the room
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I’ve took my mods out , deleted cache files, and repaired the game and still the lighting is showing up outside of the room. Help me please

Re: Lighting in game broken?

@liltofuu I was able to duplicate what you're seeing in my game.  Note that the lighting does not behave this way when you have it set to Very High instead of the lower settings.  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.
