Logbook/flight summary stopped recording landings after SU6

Recommended Posts

When I finish a flight, the landing field is blank in flight summary/logbook. Also, the arrival always says "in the vicinity of." Is anyone else having this problem?

The last 7 flights I have taken, Zero landings. It's definetly a bug.

My four landings since SU6 have all logged correctly.

Are you starting on the runway running?  Or starting cold and dark.  And when you arrive and park, how are you shutting down the systems and the aircraft?  When I start in a running condition on the runway, and when I properly shut down after parking, my logbook entries are complete.  Note also you should turn off lights and then shut off the avionics master before shutting down generators and batteries.  My logbook pops up as soon as I turn the avionics master off.  Departure and destination are both logged for me when I do it that way.

An issue here is the lack of documentation for MSFS advising of characteristics like this.

Exactly my experience also @fppilot. 👍


No. No, Mav, this is not a good idea.

When the annoying logbook pops up after the flight, I get the takeoff, but no landing indicated.  Look at the logbook in my profile and both are actually logged.

True, documentation may help but there is no question that the logbook feature of MSFS is pure rubbish and has been so since launch. Why Asobo can’t (or won’t) fix this is one of life’s great mysteries. Starting cold and dark on the ramp is almost guaranteed to mean your departure (take off) won’t be recorded. Multi sector flights are not recorded either. Opting not to be thrown out the cockpit on shutdown causes an extra garbage entry in the logbook. Columns don’t even line up properly. It’s a very neglected part of the sim.
 

Not a deal breaker (for me) but it would be nice if this was all fixed by now.

It is obviously not a serious issue to them for a game.  For all of my recent flights, I shut down all systems according to checklists.  When I review my logbook I find my flight was recorded, but I also find an additional logbook entry that logged the time after shutdown but before return to Main Menu.

In the hours I logged when still active I could have significantly boosted my hours by logging time debriefing after time with instructors and check rides.

Come on man, Asobo!  The logbook needs immediate attention.  I would appreciate the opportunity to clean my logbook up from non-flying hours, and to edit other extraneous entries, such as successful flights with successful hours and flights ending at "in proximity of" airports.

Let's get real here!

The logbook window does not always pop up but when ever I look for the previous flight in the book is logged in correctly.

I stopped looking at the logbook last November... totally useless.

Logbook, achievements, bush trips, save/autosave feature, autopilot advanced features, all of this must be taken care of by people who are actually capable of fixing them.

There are many (apparently) trivial issues that are unsolved since release: either Asobo do not care, or they are incapable to fix them.

I've only done one flight since SU6, and it recorded the landing properly.

My one flight since SU6 was properly recorded. As I use LNM, I rely on the logbook in that with, as far as I can see, does not distinguish between day and night.

I mostly havent any takeoffs despite having shutting down ATC .Maybe it still is active in the background? Sometimes i notice my com 1 has changed.

Not good on vatsim i guess.
