Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update 1.4.1 Patch Notes – Resolves Some Tree, Soil And Shovel Issues – Nintendo Life

A week after Nintendo released wave two of the summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s now rolled out version 1.4.1. It contains a bunch of fixes – most notably, resolving an issue where trees could mature and contain things other than normal fruit.

Players who have updated to the latest version of New Horizons are now noticing how their hacked trees containing Star Fragments and various other items have been transformed into money trees with bags of bells hanging from them.

This makes a lot of sense considering the origin of these types of trees, as noted by the fan site Animal Crossing World:

Given that the Star Fragment trees were technically just money trees to begin with modified inside of an external save editor through hacking, it makes sense that they will now return to their original form now.

The latest fix follows on from a story last weekend about Nintendo deleting hacked dream island uploads that contained Star Fragment trees and sending the same players messages about violating the game’s user agreement.

Below are the full patch notes for Version 1.4.1 courtesy of Nintendo’s official support page:

General updates
The following issues that occurred in Ver. 1.4.0 have been fixed:

  • Fixed an issue where trees could mature and contain things other than the normal fruit, etc.
  • Fixed an issue where shining soil disappears after returning to your own island after a dream and buried Bells appear in that location instead.
  • Fixed an issue where the player swings their shovel through the air when attempting to hit a rock placed at a certain location.
