This is an old print, but, i have the exact problem, which i am trying to resolve.
As far as I know Simplify3D doesn't keep the amount of material the same when reducing 1st layer height since v4.1:

So many of the assumptions in this old thread aren't valid any longer.

Thanks for pointing this out, parallyze. You're correct. If you wish to squish the filament like in prior versions you can use the Global G-Code offsets in the G-Code tab. (Decrease on Z to squish more, increase on Z to squish less)
