In laptop mode, my paint isn't showing up at all. Paint that i put there like 3 years ago and never had any problem with just disappeared without a trace. I checked and it all works fine when  I turn off laptop mode.
Please fix it so I can turn on laptop mode again...

Terrain Paints & Laptops:
While in laptop mode the terrain paints will now display. They were just being a little shy and hiding from sight. We’ve worked with them on their confidence and offered them a cookie. It was enough to get them out from under the table and back into your game. Finicky little things. But they’re good paints.

Fixed in Patch 1.47.51

 

I know some people had slightly different issues and I don't know if this fix applies to them (including sound).

 

If you still have issues, please create a new thread (if the sound bug isn't fix, make a new thread for that too)

 

It seems it's still not working for integrated chips. Use this thread to post if you have a integrated graphics chip: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-Terrain-Paint-not-working-integrated-graphics-chips/m-p...

Turning off laptop Mode fixes the issue!

 

Although beware spamming the paint tool while you can't see it! When I relaunched my game after turning off Laptop Mode my lawn was a giant mess!
