January Mayor Update - January 31 2017 Edit

Builder Buddies Version 1.1.2. Due to complaints to the developer, a change was made so that mayors could no longer change blocks on resident plots. This was mainly due to complaints of bad mayors stealing wool from players. While this change was great for players, it made it harder for mayors because it removed the ability to "keep the town clean" and to work on collaborative building projects.

FiveWideRoadSharedWithPlot

5WideRoadSharedWithPlot.jpg

Hardest hit was the mayor of Diamond Falls who had a unique, space-saving town design in which 5-wide roads and resident houses shared the same plots. Without the mayor's ability to fix roads, residents quickly abused roads and blocked them. The mayor then had to spend several months re-designing the town so that roads and residents were on separate plots. This design is much more expensive as almost half the town plots end up being roads, with a lot of extra space around the roads, but this would remain the new norm for large towns. (Mayors did not get a break until the 2018 March Town Search update which made it a lot easier to have small towns, and small towns either don't need the roads OR have just a few players who cooperate very well.)

Character Dress Update - March 28 2017 Edit

Builder Buddies Version 1.2.0. Players can now customizes their skin color, eye color, hair color, hairstyles, shirts, pants, shoes. This is very useful to people because they no longer needed to delete their character to changes their skins. This also made role-playing much more fun.

Top 20 to Top 40 Change - June 22 2017 Edit

Approximately June 22, 2017, a change was made at the server so that "Top Towns" showed the top 40 towns instead of top 20. This change made it substantially easier for new, small towns to survive. Instead of needing 4-5 people in the town to make it to the Top Towns list, now often only 1-2 people were needed. And once a town appeared in Top Towns, players would visit there to investigate. Some larger towns lost some residents as more people decided to try being a mayor.

This update is a minor update, No updates in App Store.

Hacker Crisis Bug Fix Update - December 9 2017 Edit

Builder Buddies Version 1.3.3 //this paragraph unfinished yet: waiting for term

January Mega Update - January 8 2018 Edit

NewBlocks

Builder Buddies Version 1.3.4 This update was made on January 8 2018. It moved players from the old server to a new server. Players with the updated app go to the new server. Unfortunately, those who haven't updated yet are still stuck in the old server. The new server gives the developers ability to add new blocks into the game without server updates again or game updates! On that day purple wool, orange wool, and doors were added to the game. Following those bricks, brown wool, and gray wool were added.

The update was also called "The day that never happened" because if you made changes to old server, then updated your app, you were in the new server and works in old server were lost. See this video where Torrapicus Termite (Kevin North) Logged in to the new server with his iPad and old server in his iPhone here.

"EMERGENCY UPDATE 1/9/2018: "January 8, 2018 - The Day That Never Happened" - The new Builder Buddies 1 update has been accomplished by making a new server that supports the new block types. The developer copied the BB1 world over to the new server early on 1/8. However he didn't disable the old server, so a ton of people played on 1/8 with the OLD app and server, not knowing that all changes would get LOST! Please UPDATE YOUR APP NOW to the latest version to start using the NEW server. You will get everything back that you had early on 1/8." ― Torrapicus Termite, Mayor of Diamond Falls

March Town Search Update - March 5 2018 Edit

Builder Buddies Version 1.4.0 This update brings new feature in the game. Town Search feature. This make a player can goes to every town in the server, Just type in word fragment and teleport to the town. even the town is not in Top Town List. This Update made a huge change in the game, people are no longer wanted to live in a big town, but they can lives in small town and even create a town because they can go back at the town any time. This update also makes us know how to loot a deleted town.

June Wool Update - June 6 2018 Edit

RedOld
RedNew
Builder Buddies Version 1.4.2.

This update is made because the developers are caring about wools, the highest price block in the game again! At the June Wool Update day, there were 4 wools added into the server. And the old wools color all tweaked up! These pictures are the old/new wools comparation. The new wools are clearly much better! Wool color tweaked up! Also new wools!
