I think this bug is also removing terrain paint from previously painted lots. I started a new game and built a new lot the day before the patch and I'm pretty sure I painted and now the paint is gone.

I'm going to search through my other saves and lots and see if there is issues there.

It should be still there. You just can't see it when in laptop mode.

Do you have laptop mode on ?

Okay that makes since. I do have laptop mode on, however, I run the game on an aging laptop so I don't feel comfortable with running with out it so i'll have to deal with it for now until the issue is either fixed or I can afford to retire my laptop. Thanks for the help.

There are no problems with sound, brush or paint for me in desktop mode.

If the hill on your lot is so high that the stone texture becomes visible on the sides, you cannot paint the sides. The gurus explained this in a livestream. They created however a different texture for each world.

I wanted to add my experience.

 

I knew this was going to be a pretty big patch, so I decided to make a backup of some of the folders before patching, and reset my Sims 4 folder. I think because of that I didn't get hit with the terrain paint not working bug, as by default Laptop mode is turned off.

 

I made sure everything was working okay, and then copied back the Saves and Tray folder along with the Option.ini file. It's still working fine.

Thanks for explaining that Alan.Im not impressed though i prefer how it worked in sims3 where we could paint all of it exactly how we wanted to.It worked fine and there was no need for them to change it for sims4.I don't understand this need that game developers have to change things that don't need to be touched.
