After not one but two summer updates, along with a follow-up patch that removed hacked trees from the game, Nintendo has now rolled out Version 1.4.2 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Although it’s only just gone live, it doesn’t appear to be quite as exciting as the previous content updates.
Despite this, it still includes a lot of important fixes that address problems found in previous versions of the game – all the way back to Version 1.3.0. One of the highlights of this update is that shining soil will no longer appear behind buildings and “other” places. This should make life on your tropical island a little less stressful. Dreaming will no longer crash the game “under certain conditions”, either.
Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of the official Nintendo Support page:
The software has been updated if you see “Ver. 1.4.2” in the upper-right corner of the title screen.
The following issues have been addressed:
- From Ver. 1.4.1:
- Fixed issue where the “sumo ring” would not display properly.
- From Ver. 1.4.0:
- Fixed issue where the game would shut down under certain conditions when dreaming.
- Fixed issue where shining soil would improperly appear behind buildings and other places.
- Fixed issue where specific message cards sent from animal residents the player is close friends with would not arrive in the player’s mailbox as intended.
- From Ver. 1.3.0:
- Changed the MTU when playing with others from 1364 to 1240 in order to investigate an issue where players cannot play with others in certain network environments.
