Had an issue with one house doing the red flash when switching floors. Attaching my deviceconfig.log for review.

Haven't experienced it until today, I was putting a lot into my world and then it started strobing red unless I was completely zoomed in.

@JustCallMeNerdy Tried the texture change, now it's narrowed down to happening on one floor of the building I'm working on, still haven't had it happen anywhere else

Have been playing in another house and that one is on level terrain and it doesn't flash when changing floors. I think the problem (at least for me) was when the house was on edited terrain with either a lower or higher terrain than "street level".

@JustCallMeNerdy Updating again because hadn't had the issue for a little bit with changed settings but changed them back and the red flash is back. Just keeping my setting lowered and crossing my fingers

I just wanted to add that the Stones Throw Greenhouse, a store item, is a great generator of the red screen effect.  I don't get troubled by the red screen on any of my houses or the rabbit hole lots but as soon as I scroll out from the Greenhouse, my screen gets buried in red.

Hi there! I have this on zooming out past a certain distance. It does not happen in the basement, and it gets worse the higher the level I am on. It is a constant red strobing until I zoom back in. Was not an issue when I first installed (recently) and it happened a few days after I installed it on my Mac.

Re: [CURRENT ISSUE 64-bit] red flashing game window

@landrayeblossum  Did you make any changes to the house that might have triggered this behavior?  Whether the changes are structural or decorative, it's possible there's some object or objects that cause this kind of problem when rendered.

The flashing red screen happens to me in build or buy mode when I zoom out. It only goes away when I zoom back in. It has also caused my game to crash a couple times after it happens.

Currently having this issue. I have attached the log.

Whether I am paused or playing, the screen will start strobing red if I zoom out a certain ways. The first floor allows the most zooming out, but as I go up a floor, the amount of zoom is limited.

I have to be almost completely zoomed in in order for the screen to not start strobing red on the third floor.

It has not crashed my game.

The lot is 64 x 64 and the family size is 4 adults and 2 children. 

This happens in both windowed and full screen modes. 

Have settings on all the way up to high.
