I need to reconnect to the gallery each time when I visit. This happens when I start the game as well as when I go back to the gallery after playing or building.
The gallery no longer connects automatically to the gallery since Patch 1.92.145 but only on demand. This is to make sure everyone can access the gallery even when there’s a lot of traffic. The gallery will get disconnected again if you don’t use it for a while.
This change was made on purpose.
