Yes, the more community buildings you have the higher the cost for the next one. The houses work the same way but they are independent from each other. The highest cost for a community building used to be §1,000,000 but now it is §2,000,000 (what it costs for me to build the train station).

Hmm, I'm pretty sure I didn't have that part of the quest. :? I'm already on the "practice holding on" task but have no memory of doing that one. I think I'd remember because I remember starting the apologize part yesterday evening. Weird!

Evening more weird, I had search for key but did not have practice holding on. I was watching the timer to be sure I got everything done, and was expecting the 1 day task, but then suddenly I got the message that I had completed the quest. Not sure about the order of all the other tasks as I wasn't paying attention but positive I skipped the long one.

:? Things like this have happened on the past. The main thing to worry about is if the quest just ends early and you don't get the limited time reward. As long as you get to the end of the quest, get the congratulations, and the prize I'd say just roll with it!

Very grateful to skip the 1 day task, just shocked! What was worrying was that after I started building the hospital, my game crashed and I was unable to get back in. I repeatedly force stopped the game and restarted my device but it wouldn't load. I was reluctant to uninstall and reinstall because I wasn't sure when I had last saved to the cloud, since I was out and about while I was playing. Finally decided to leave it for a while and just keep trying.

After about 12 hours of trying, it finally loaded. But just like after the update, all of my sims who had been doing hobbies were now idle. The babies were no longer playing xylophone, but they had been moved to the 1st floor again, along with the pee cleaner. All of the sims who had been diving were still wearing their swimsuits but were standing around at the front of the lot. :shock:

My game has been crashing today also ... Really, it's crashing when trying to load. Force stop and repeated tries finally loaded for me also. This is on a device which has never given me problems with anything, including SFP. Save. Save. Save.
