The update to version 2116 should now unlock the achievement for most players that were still experiencing issues. However, after investigating a player save following the update and the reports that some players were still having issues, the team found that if a trophy was created on a custom island in an earlier version, there is a chance this is still blocking this achievement. The team are now looking to rectify this in the next update.
Followup to Update 06/23: At some point the boss islands were counted in the same way as custom islands. If you crafted a trophy on a boss island, or custom island, the fix the team are currently working on should unblock the trophy for you when released.
If you are certain none of your trophies were crafted on a custom island or boss island, and you are still unable to unlock the achievement, please let me know below so we can investigate any other potential blockers asap.
In going through the different reports surrounding achievements, the team believe they may have found a cause behind the issue with Call Me Ahab not unlocking. While the issues with the crafting menu is also being investigated, players may have success unlocking this achievement if the trophies are crafted on game-generated islands. If you try this please let me know if it was successful for you.
When a player defeats all 3 bosses and crafts the trophies for those bosses, if all 3 trophies are in the player’s backpack at any stage, “Call Me Ahab” will be unlocked.
For this issue, “Call Me Ahab” fails to unlock when these conditions are met.
Crafting each of the 3 trophies on the starting island has worked as a workaround for some players.
Unfortunately for players who have already crafted the trophies, there is currently no known workaround for prompting the trophy to unlock.
ArmchairTuna66 noted that they crafted their trophies through the quick craft menu and were able to unlock the trophy without being on the starting island.
It may be worth trying:
- Clearing the cache of your console*, reloading the save and placing the trophies in your backpack
- Travelling to your starting island, saving and repeating the steps above
- Saving and keeping a backup save before traveling to the plane carrier and completing the endgame scenario to see if it unlocks at this point.
- Crafting via the regular crafting menu instead of the quick crafting menu, and doing it one at a time (opening and closing the menu) rather than one after another.
*To clear the the cache of your console, shut down and unplug the console for 2-5 minutes. Then plug back in and reboot.
Please let me know what crafting methods you have tried and also if the colour splash behind the items in the crafting menu changes colour / registers that the trophies have been crafted.
