Whenever I start the game I create a game, but when it asks me to place residential it never works. I mark the residential area, but it keeps telling me that I need to place it down even though it shows that I have placed it down on the screen. It is impossible to play as no one can move in and i have no idea how to fix it. Any suggestions would be great.

I have tried reinstalling, but when I do it always freezes when updating so i quit and try again and then it completes the update. Not sure if this is the problem.
