Hello Mobile Terrarians!

Great news for iOS and Android (Google Play) users! We have good amount of fixes (below) going live today - these should make their way to your devices over the next 24h-48h! Thanks so much for your patience and help with identifying many of these bugs/issues!

Amazon users: We've been working with Amazon to fix a Heap memory issue that was in the game and causing it to crash frequently. Progress has been made here...and we are sending our latest ideas up to them for their reaction. Hang in there - we know it is frustrating, but we are going to get this fixed up...steady progress is happening, though we know you obviously cannot see that.

Windows Phone users: We have identified the reason for the crashes - or at least the general area. The game is being flagged with STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION because the RtlFreeHeap function has detected a problem. The bad news is that - in general - heap corruptions are not easy to debug because the actual cause of the corruption may be long gone by the time that the corruption is detected. We have been and are working directly with engineers at Microsoft to debug the heap corruption - but it is a difficult process.

This is compounded by some of the changes that take place between the version that goes into certification and the final Retail Release - which is likely why this occurs to you guys and not for anyone in QA or Certification.
All that said, the good news is that we have our latest attempt to sort these issues ready for Microsoft to check over again. No promises it will work, of course - this has been a really tricky one to solve - but here's hoping this one works!

Thanks again for your patience and support!

Beetle armor still isn't giving me a set bonus, am I doing anything wrong. I wasted a lot of time just then getting the whole set
While cross-plata forming I can't see any of the Stylist exclusive hair styles on a friend. It just shows me one of the normal ones. If he chooses the first of the exclusive ones, For me it shows up as the first of the normal ones and so on.
And spear trap

From what I see, it doesn't *list* a set bonus, but the set bonus does work when you get into combat (the beetle will fly around you).

The original bug was that it listed the wrong set bonus entirely, so at least that is fixed.
Also add the ability to cast a fishing rod by tapping anywhere, you can only cast a fishing rod when you tap on the water..
Also if that's not added, there is a bug where fishing rods were able to cast through blocks. That happens when a player casts a fishing rod by tapping on the water and the player is behind a wall. Example:
space, space, space, block, player head, player head
space, space, space, block, player body, player body
space, space, space, block, player leg, player leg
space, space, space, block, block,block
space, space, space, space, space, space
