Super buggy it hurts

There is a bug where you somehow have enough resource to build but then you can't because it won't pop up when you tap it.However you can still build roads and after you done that and used your resources now you can tap to build the settlement.

Developer Response ,

Hi Zzeertbhf, please note that there are certain limits in different scenarios on how may settlements you can build. You can check the board pieces on the bottom of the screen to see how many of them are left. You may have to build a city first to be able to build another settlement. If you are not sure if you should be able to build another settlement or not, please send us a screenshot of the situation via and we will take a look at the situation.
