Hi GreatAthbi, welcome to the forums,
Thank you for your questions and feedback. I’ve responded to each of your points below. I have also moved your post to the Console Bug Reports section as I have some questions about the second issue you mentioned. I also removed your full name from the post above as we ask players to avoid sharing any personally identifiable information on the forums.
1. Gotta Craft Them All
The team are aware of an issue with the Gotta Craft Them All trophy unlocking and they are investigating both this and other potentially related issues. In the past this issue was worked around by some players when they crafted one of everything on their home island. But it is possible that the current issue with the tool belt and story items in the crafting menu remaining locked as if they were never crafted may be affecting this, even if the items are crafted.
In your crafting menu, for any items you have crafted but appear locked, has the color behind the item changed? This usually denotes whether it was crafted or not. I am not a dev so I am not sure which way the system counts the item as crafted, but if the color has not changed, then there is a chance it is not being counted.
Unfortunately we do not have a known workaround for this issue.
2. Disconnecting When Facing An Island
I am sorry to hear your friend is facing a glitch when attempting to return to their island. From your descriptions it sounds like you are playing a multiplayer save in version 2083 (this number is at the bottom left of the main menu) on PlayStation with your friend as the host? If this is not the case. Please let me know.
In the past players have had issues in returning to their island when they reach the loading point between two islands. This was more commonly reported in an earlier single player version of the game. When this occurred, players would be returning to their island which would be well established with lots of buildings or a lot of loose items on the island. Is this the case for your friend’s island also?
When experiencing this in the past, players found that looking away from the island as they approached (facing forward with their raft but pointing the camera elsewhere so the island loaded off screen) helped them to get to the island. Please try this and let me know if you have any success. Also, if your friend is traveling by raft and your character is also on the raft. Try traveling separately or with your character only joining and traveling after they reach their island.
If your friend’s situation does not match some of my descriptions above, please provide more information about the steps taken when this issue occurs, the island they are heading to and the gameplay setup in general.
With regards to future updates, the team are working on the next update for the console version of the game. However, they have not yet released a timeline for this update or what it will contain. Any new information on this will be posted in the News and Announcements section as soon as it is available.

3. Magnets, How Do They Work? Achievement.
The Magnets, How Do They Work? Achievement requires a player not to use a compass during their entire playthrough. Players can move compasses from one container to another or have it in their inventory and drop it, but opening in their hand at any stage will count as using the compass.
The Gyrocopter compass will also not have an impact on this achievement, it is only related to the hand held compass.
Please also note, if you are playing as player2 on your friends game, “Magnets, How Do They Work?” and “Out of the Frying Pan” will only unlock for the host at the end of the game. This is to prevent anyone who joined the game as player2 at the very end of the host’s playthrough getting the achievements after avoiding the work to do so.
I hope the information above helps, if I missed anything, please let me know. I understand the issues with trophies in particular can be very frustrating for players and I am sorry I do not have any further information on workarounds or timelines for fixes at this time.
Any extra details you can provide about your experienced of the issues you mentioned would be greatly appreciated as I can pass these details onto the team members working on them.
