Flights don't always get logged, and another question

Recommended Posts

It seems my flights don't always get logged.  I just did about an hour long flight from Cancun to Belize, and when I shutdown, a flight from yesterday showed up in my logbook, but not the current one.

Also, on a totally different topic, can anyone confirm the best setting for offscreen terrain precaching?  I've read ultra is good, and will help eliminate stutter when panning around.  Just want to make sure I'm not hurting performance.

Logging has not been working for me for several months now in fact total number has gone down substantially!  Ultra for me always and I have excellent panning performance.

It will not log the flight if you used developer mode.

Regarding the offscreen terrain precaching, I use Ultra too. Less stutters and didn't notice any performance problem even with my dated PC.

Yup, my log shows one flight since the beginning of August, even though I do a couple each day.  I never use Dev Mode.

You want all your flights logged in detail forever, for free. use this app.   https://www.lrmclient.org/   I have flights from almost a decade ago, logged with this app.

I am embarrassed. Been simming from MSFS98. I never use this utility. I think when I first heard of it, it was just a landing performance monitor. Wasn't interested then, and never realized how much it has evolved. Wish I had this some months back.....before one of the betas deleted my hundred plus hours in MSFS.

I am really surprised here reading this. My issue with the MSFS profile logbook is that it is logging too much.  Example engines off study time in new aircraft models. Battery on, but not flying.  Not even taxiing.  And no ability to edit out the zero hour entries.  I maintain my logbook in Microsoft Excel base on reported end of flight results.  Have done this back to even before Flight Assignment:ATP, which was released in the early 1990's.

For understanding of MSFS 2020, I do not spawn on a runway ready for takeoff.  Repeat, do not.  I do not use MSFS developer mode.  I start cold and dark, and also call for the MSFS fuel truck (Shift+F).  Sometimes it arrives, sometimes not.  Many of the airports I depart from are freeware addons.  Despite that, as a 100% of the time routine I load in MSFS the fuel I need for a flight, based on what I am given by an external flight planner (Fltplan.com in my case).  For some aircraft that is via the handlebar MSFS menu.  For others, like the Hjet, my fuel and payload is entered as designed through that model's G3000's GTC (Garmin Touch Control).

I get too many entries, not too few.  Below you can see my point to point circuit if you review from bottom to top.  Zero hour entries are time spend on the ground, often when working on and reviewing a personal livery or two I am attempting to create.  Perhaps in those cases I should be reviewing the work in Developer MOde.  Like this one in St Louis Blues NHL hockey team colors:

My biggest issue is that landing and takeoff count is not recorded correctly. Often only one or the other is recorded. I only ever fly from cold and dark start to cold and dark shutdown. I don’t use the defective ATC and I suspect that is part of the issue.
