Re: Terrain Paint Problem

@marjia Is this how it's supposed to look or how it looks on the lot in willow creek ? Could you post a before and after ?

Does it also happen when you leave the lot ? There's a thread for that here: but not sure if it's the same.

Happy Gaming

@crinrict you can see from the attatched photo that the terrain paint has slipped from where it was intended. It's really obvious.

What is happening to me on and off is that I finish a build. Save it. Exit the game. I open up the game, go straight to the build and the terrain paint has disappeared completely. 


It will save if I save the build to my library, but otherwise, it's anyone's guess. 


I wouldn't mind so much if I hadn't spent so much time on this, plus once everything is already placed, trying to add terrain paint back makes the camera jump around like crazy.
