Meaning you are on a mac ? This is currently being investigated.

You can't really reinstall without the latest patch. Origin automatically installs the latest one.

Right guys i have finally got the terrain paint to work after about the 20th attempt at restarting it with laptop mode off but this bug needs fixing it's a pain to have to keep re-starting when all you want to do is play the game

I run my game on a Mac as well. My terrain paint isn't working. I can see the brush outline where it would go but nothing happens.

How do you turn laptop mode off? Will that mess my game up if I am playing from a laptop?

It's in your game options under graphics.

You might have performance issues.

I run a Macbook pro and I am also having the issue of the terrain paint not working at all since the patch yesterday.

Re: [TO ADD] Terrain Paint Not Working After latest Game Patch

★★★★ Novice

I spent all day after the patch came out yesterday trying to figure out what could possibly be the issue. I thought that it was for sure one of my mods making terrain paint not come up. I followed what the guy posted and suddenly the terrain paint was working again. I fixed my settings because they were all reset obviously. That includes turning off laptop mode. I turned laptop mode back on because it helps my LAPTOP! run the game a smoother. Again I went back in and Oh! Look whats NOT WORK AGAIN! terrain paint. I'm only annoyed because I had to spend half of my day trying to figure what I was doing wrong and what mod was messing with the game, only to find out its the game itself. Wouldn't be so pissed if something so simple hadnt turned into such a hassel. Now why exactly do I need to turn off laptop mode to see something as simple as terrain paint? Is this actually a bug or is someone just an idiot?

It is not a Button but a Checkbox at the very bottom of the graphics settings.
