Closed Alpha disclaimer:
We have entered a development phase where significant changes are coming in every major patch. These may have a big impact on your gameplay and we are sorry about the inconvenience and possible frustration! Through these updates, the game is starting to come together and pieces are falling into place. We hope that this is also visible to all our players and everybody who follows the game. Regardless we will continue to try and notify our Closed Alpha players of the biggest incoming changes the best we can.

There's an issue that has come to our attention that we wanted to warn you about:
  • Creating cables and pipes within the Interior Designer and then building them with the Building Tool is causing some issues when going back to edit in the Lot Designer. This currently results in a large upload upon exiting the game and the removal of the whole lot.
We currently do not recommend building cables or pipes with the Building Tool on Lots! This issue is under investigation.
We are sorry for this inconvenience!
