  1. Good evening,
    After reading this post I am confused. Does this patch mean all of the following characters, buildings, and decorations are currently available for purchase, or does it mean those contents are getting ready to be released soon? I only ask this because I have yet to see any of these items come into my game. Is anyone having this trouble as well? Please let me know, thank you.
