[NEEDS INPUT] [S] Lighting strikes objects in unreachable areas
[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All, except Tiny Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the apartment lots within Medina Studios during heavy thunderstorms and see if the decorative planters outside get hit by lightning.
What happens when the bug occurs? The planters are destroyed and turn into ash piles after being randomly struck by lightning.
What do you expect to see? I don't expect lightning to hit objects that are not part of the buildable area the player can access. There is no way to replace these decorative planters, leaving empty spaces behind and spoiling the aesthetics. Or there should be a way to manually replace them or the game should auto-replace them.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

Not sure if this is only a recently possible thing, or if I only just noticed it because there were a lot of thunderstorms in my game this week. I thought it was unusual my sims were finding ash piles to play in and looked and saw that they were the remnants of the once decorative planters outside the apartment.
