EA PLEASE contact AMD and tell them about this serious graphic issue, the community has widely reported now and AMD is not listening.  We need you to reach out and flex some muscle to get their attention please.

 

As for us the community, please keep sending AMD bug reports about this via your AMD software (it a little bug icon on the right top).  We need to get AMD attention.

 

For a game as big as the Sims 4 and for such a serious graphical bug, I can't believe its not being addressed after nearly 2 y ears.

ALSO this bug effects PREVIOUS Sims titles as well, whatever the graphical issue is - its present in Sims 3 too which is built on completely different code than Sims 4.  Once again showing it has something to do on a driver level with reflecting surfaces in general.

Mirror reflects outside of the building

★★★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Polski
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.82.99.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats & Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Island Living, Discover University, Eco Lifestyle, Snowy Escape, Cottage Living, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure, StrangerVille, Realm of Magic, Perfect Patio Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff, Fitness Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff, My First Pet Stuff, Tiny Living Stuff, Nifty Knitting Stuff, Paranormal Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place mirror anywhere inside the house and look at the reflection.
What happens when the bug occurs? Instead of reflecting the inside of the room, the reflection in the mirror shows outside wall/roof and anything on it.
What do you expect to see? Reflection of the room where mirror is placed.
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? No

As you can see on screenshots, there's nothing inside the room, but mirror reflects the corner and outside view of the window of the other room (as shown in the next screenshot). On the other angle, mirror reflects edge of the building and the roof.

Other examples - mirror reflects wreath and the yellow wall, that are outside, exactly behind the mirror, but it's not reflecting the toilet in front of it. See attachments.
