I have an ipad air 2 and i'm also experiencing the build mode problems. I hadn't notice until today as I haven't been building much lately. It's generally very laggy in build mode but it works. Trying do add, delete or re-size a basement room however completely freezes the game and I have to force close the game and restart. I do hope that will be solved in the next update.

There is a solution to avoid the freezing. Don't use the arrows to change the floor, but first tap the build mode and then the basement tab. I forgot where I read this tip :oops:

I think this hasn't been mentioned, there's a new scare option.

I also noticed when you tap somewhere to move a Sim and then after that you send him to do a task, the Sim goes to the arrow and then he starts the task. I remember before the Sim would forget to go to the arrow and go directly to the task.

That's been there for ages. Perhaps since last Halloween, not sure now.

I think it has been introduced with the candy monster event and it remained since then in my main town. I haven't updated my new town, yet, and the option is not there.
