No, the circle or square that shows the brush size on the ground so you know where it’s going to paint/manipulate.

As of this morning 11/14 Just started up my game, terrain paint applies, but there is no sound.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Just wanted to jump back on, since I noticed more people were having some issues.  I reset my game and I individually checked each save file.  I also deleted all previous backup versions of each save file and pretty much had to start with a clean save.  So far everything is working fine.  I have used it with laptop mode on and off and also went through to make sure my settings were aligned to the system I'm using. 

 

I don't know if that's the way to fix it, but I think old CC and Script mods that I uninstalled were still attached to the backup save files.  Just to be safe I wouldn't jump to this step right away.  And if you haven't had any CC or script mods I would suggest just going through one by one with various settings to make sure that it's not the whole game, but maybe a specific save file you might be using.

 

My sound was working along with the terrain paint, but I will update if anything changes.  Hopefully, this helps.

My build save is a fresh game and there were no cc or mods installed when it was created. I'm not averse to starting again absolutely fresh though, I'm only on generation 2 of my current game. I'm not going to totally reset the game just yet, but if it's the only way to fix it then that's fine, at least I'm not playing my last but one game, I was up to 14 generations before I quit!

I don't think you have to quit your game.

 

I test this morning. Turn my game to laptop mode, had no terrain paint show up. With laptop mode it was fine.

 

There have been other reports of the whole thing being wonky.

Thankyou for letting me know but as i don't have a pc i'm stuck not being able to create anything and its frustrating.I think my only option is to backup my files and reinstall without the latest update.Such a shame because i have really missed the terrain tools and couldn't wait to play with them.They work perfectly on my laptop in sims3.Itried laptop mode on and off but no luck.
