Do you have lot name/creator handy that has a house with terrain paint so I can test this ?

Seems to work fine for me. Looks the same.

I assume you don't have any issues with terrain paint ?

What kind of graphics card/chip do you have ? Do you have laptop mode on ?

I've got a Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M on Win 10 Home 64 bit, i7, 16 gig ram.
Not using laptop mode. This issue developed somewhere in the last month (not sure exactly, didn't use the gallery for a bit) but wasn't there before.

Does it matter which lot you load it to ?

Is it only this lot you're having issues with or all randomly downloaded from the gallery ? I assume from your description it's all but wanting to make sure.

Also, as asked above, if you don't involve the gallery, do you have issues with terrain paint not staying ?

I haven't tried with your pack combination yet but will do so after lunch.

 

EDIT: Still have no issues

Ok, what I found is that it seems to have to do with lotsize:

- if the placed lot is bigger then the used lot, terrain paints disappear

- if the placed lot is same or smaller, terrain paints are placed

 

Tried this now with a few different world lots and a few different gallery lots on them.

 

In the past, Sims 4 didn't have this behavior. I often build on a larger lot and then move to a smaller one. (having some extra space makes it easier to build)

OK. Let me test that really quickly.

 

EDIT: Yup, that I can duplicate
