Bug is seemingly random. My wife connects to me, we play fine. She has to reload the game due to visual bug, all the sudden its an invalid host and we both get booted out. Then its a guessing game to see who it thinks is the current host...

This happened while playing with 2 friends as a group of 4 and it deleted our house entirely. It reset the prospect back to a "like new" state.

This happens when two people are being given the instruction by the central server to “host” at the same time. The hotfix we have just applied will help, as the issue was getting worse due to heavy server load. What can help is the host waiting till they are playing in game until getting their friends to join. Working on improving this greatly in future updates
