Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 22.214.171.1240
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions, several game and stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? raise all walls and zoom close to the floor so you can see the ceilings in your structure. You will see the ceilings are very dark, and they do not reflect the light correctly
What happens when the bug occurs? ceilings are very dark
What do you expect to see? ceilings that look more white and reflect light
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The 11-13-18 update was installed
After the update on 11-13-18, all the ceilings are darkened and light is not reflecting off of the ceilings correctly. This undesirable change makes the rooms look smaller and most dreary. Before the 11-13-18 update, the ceilings were more white in color and appeared to have reflected room lights. I loaded the game with no mods and all settings at their defaults, the problem was still present. The screenshots speak a thousand words.
