Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Switch the graphic option for shadows to Very High setting, place the affected windows and doors.
What happens when the bug occurs? Casting the wrong and inappropriate shadows for the affected doors and windows.
What do you expect to see? putting the affected doors and windows in very high shadows setting causes the affected doors and windows to cast the wrong shadow.

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Hello, this is a comprehensive list of affected doors and windows that are casting wrong shadows or not at all. I took the time to check each and every individual window and door that are affected. If there's any that I missed I will quickly add it to the respective category. I am writing this report to compel the developers to fix the issue. It's actually quite aggravating to see such incompetence coming from the developers who apparently overlook these eye-catching issues.
