Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When playing a vampire, one who can transport in a mist or as a bat, they "mist" all over the place, often landing backwards. They will turn into a mist while talking, only to return again. The Sim they were talking to just stands and stares at the air until they return. They will turn into a mist while cooking only to turn back and finish what they were doing. Before it is an acceptable amount, now it is just very hard to finish any task as they spend all of the time disappearing and reappearing over and over.
What happens when the bug occurs? While playing as a vampire, I will have them cook something. Sometimes they will put the dish down and stand there. Other times while cooking they will mist a dozen times, land backwards and walk back to where they were. While doing anything they will constantly disappear and reappear, often backwards. Just talking to a vampire is incredibly difficult as they keep disappearing. I looked through the bug reports about vampires but there are just too many bug reports since November 2020 update. I wasn't sure how to phrase the issue.
What do you expect to see? I expect the vampire to mist or turn into a bat only when going somewhere.
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. Definitely after the first November 2020 patch, but possibly as early as the October 2020 Patch

Vampires are constantly Disappearing and Reappearing in a mist or flying as a bat.
