Okay, that’s fine. I thought you were saying that terrain paint wouldn’t be available with laptop mode on, like ever

Sound

★★★★ Novice

So far my game is running very well, even after the patch and Get Famous! The ONLY thing is I don't seem to have the sound when using terrain paint. No whooshing sound that I've come to love. Now I know plenty of folks don't have terrain paint at all so I'm lucky, just wondering if anyone else is having this issue?

I'm actually doing a clean re-install now, I do one periodically to clean out my CC and reset game files properly and since my sim, Jacob Broke, met his maker due to repeated lightning strikes, I figured now was as good a time as any. High five

Well it brought back my terrain painting/manipulation guides. Let's see if any cc/mods break it!

 

Edit- nope have mcc and ui cheat installed and it's still there. No idea what the issue is/was unfortunately, a repair and new game didn't fix it, but a re-install (removing previous sims 4 folder and renaming it before reinstalling) did the trick. Hopefully they figure out what's doing it soon.

Re: Terrain Paint Disappearing

★★★★ Novice

My terrain has disappeared off all of my lots, and I can't repaint it at all. When I use the painting tool, nothing happens. This is after I updated the game following the Get Famous patch.

Hello,

this is a known bug that it caused by playing with laptop mode on. Turn it off in the game options and see if it works.
