Hello Wardens,

We’re back with another update this week with more investigation into reported issues, fixes and improvements. They’ll be more next week too but we wanted to get the latest out to you. In addition to fixes, last week we rolled out a new Island Expansion feature, which has been improved further. When playing with an island and expanding the land, the islands generated in the water are more varied, and players now have the option to generate these islands, or just water, if they wish.

We’re also working on a tool for you to quickly generate random islands in the location of your choice.

Thank you for all your feedback.

I haven't tested this patch yet but from what other people reported - food ingredients not being delivered is an serious issue that should be fixed asap.
Some people said that the fix for it is to enable cheats, spawn in some boxes with food and disable the cheats. Deliveries should start working normally after that.

Anyways, keep up the good work!

Thanks for the fixes.
Could you please investigate the cloning issue next?
When I clone buildings i seem to pay twice for furniture, and playing without cloning is really exhausting.
