News
(Shortened from the article.)
In Build Mode, you can now place trees, plants, double-height pillars and even a basketball court inside, in mezzanines and on balconies.

New players can now view some more later game categories in the Home Store: ‘Patios’, ‘Toddlers’ and ‘Infants’ If you haven’t unlocked them, they’ll be locked/greyed out, but with clear instructions on the requirements and path you’ll need to take to access them.

Wall lamps can now be placed on walls that regular ground objects already inhabit, regardless of overlap.

Changes

New option at TVs „Watch Reality TV“
Kiddie Pool at Swimming Center has been fixed.
The buggy doors have been fixed, except the colors (See pictures on page 2)

In the past the updates were released on Monday evening or at night from Monday to Tuesday. I don‘t expect this one before 9pm UTC.

I just updated and now my game keeps crashing. I've restarted my devices a couple of times but I haven't gone through the troubleshooting steps that they list on their website. Luckily this is my secondary game so I'm not too upset, except I've spent the last few months earning life orbs and I was nearly done building everything on the other island. :(

You're speaking of new Influence and simchase 8 rerun? I only got new Influence Island as I have already completed Simchase. I would be livid about both. We need breathing room!

No, both events are new. Industrial stuff in II, brunch cafe stuff in SC.

Upon further review, I stand corrected. It is the chase S8 rerun. I thought I’d played all chases, but apparently I missed this one. Or maybe didn’t finish, since I have the park benches, but not the rest of the stuff.

They said on Twitter that you should deactivate the Android Webview app, cause the latest update for that causes various apps to crash, including TSFP. Doing that should stop the crashes.
