S4Studio now has a batch fix for Custom Windows and Doors.

 

I cannot link the tool here as it's a third party tool and is not supported by EA. You'll be using at your own risk

 

Backup your saves and you custom content before attempting the fix

 

  1. Google S4Studio to find their website
  2. Go to the Forum: Download Sims 4 Studio - Open Beta Version and choose the thread for Windows or Mac depending on your OS
  3. To download, you need to create an account (for free)
  4. PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS given on the site before batch fixing your windows. 

This is for all CC. Some of the creators also have already updated them. EA is not going to revert any changes they made or fix any CC Windows.

 

There are also a few problems with EA Windows/Doors. Those ARE bugs and need to be fixed by EA.

 

See the following links and me too or post there

@RussianJunkie

Yep, today's patch broke them all. Hopefully S4S will come up with a batch fix.

@Cilfie Yes, CC windows are broken. Has to do with the changes they made to the window placement.

CC creators will need to fix this or maybe S4Studio will make a batch fix for this.

Currently you can just wait.

If you're seeing this on any game windows, please use this thread

I have the same problem. I didn’t even want to stack windows! I wanted my custom windows. For every “bug” the sims team fixes, they create two more.
