I'm just on a no huts play through and wondering how to rebuild traps? The builder is out of action ATM.

Once your builder is out of action you're near the end of the game. You won't get to build any more traps.

I've just made it near the end on my iPad without building any huts this time - and I've had a couple of unsuccessful attempts at flying the starship.

Now though as soon as I take off the game bombs out back to the springboard. I'm not sure if this is caused by the recent update.

Any ideas how to salvage this? I don't want to go back to the beginning again.

I just finished the game and I am speechless.. I'd like to congratulate the developer of this game for being a rebel in this full of IAP games and so graphical appealing focusing games lurking around in the AppStore.. This game was an emotional journey for me and I reccomend this game to anyone that can see through the visuals and keep the essential meaning which is the story.
