I agree great fun version! but having the same issue with items disappearing.
During hay fever season (somewhat annoying season it is, with the sneezing your stuff away and the blacking out houses)
Now we started losing items as that season started.
Anything that hit the floor without being properly placed..so drops really. Went poof in a cloud of swirls like shown above.
Outside isn't an issue - just in building and in caves.
We were so close to finding our way to the second land but died from hay fever LOL
Thanks - still loving the game, bugs and sneezes and all!
