Hello all,

The public version of the Build Anywhere Update is now live! Thank you again to everyone who played early versions of this massive update and helped us to test and tweak the new features.

The main feature of this update is a brand new building system. Instead of pre-determined spots for building facilities, you can now build everything wherever you like on your ranch. This includes foundations, floor, walls, doors, stairs, roofs, coops, barn, fences, feeders and preserving bins for meat and cheese products. Oh, and you can now paint freebuild objects, coops and fences in whatever colors you choose! Head to the new hardware store to find a color machine.

We've also introduced a more optimised map, pig breeding, a hardware store and more! Read on for the full patch notes.

IMPORTANT: This update resets your progress!

As previously mentioned, this update wipes your saves. The major changes to the building system sadly means that old saves will no longer be compatible.

For those of you who HAVE NOT played the unstable early version(s) of this update: Your progress will reset when you install and play this update.

For those of you who HAVE played the unstable early version(s) of this update: As long as you have stayed on the unstable branch since switching over to it, you are now safe to switch back over to the public branch. You will not lose your progress again.

More information can be found here.
