There have been reports of a freeze or stutter between islands, primarily when leaving or returning to the players base island. This issue appears to be separate to the lag experienced between islands as when the freezing stops the players raft or gyro may have advanced without them.
The “looking away” from an island workaround that works for the lag does not appear to work in this case. There are currently no known workarounds for this issue.
If you have experienced this issue, we would greatly appreciate details of your experience including descriptions of you island, whats on it, and any buildings changes made. Please also include what in game day you are on and if this is occurring in a save made before the 1820 (PS4) / 2820 (XB1) update.
