I know we have several posts on the forums regarding this achievement but many are old and one in the bugs/issues section has been logged and I feel what I’m about to type deserves its own topic so here goes.
Has anyone here on PC or Xbox unlocked this achievement after SU5 got released?
I know many on other topics have given tips but they unlocked it before SU5 got released and the tips are how do I put it? Outdated!
This is because you can no longer use AI to park. If you turn on AI it turns on AI ATC which automatically turns the true to life settings to custom, which in turn voids the achievement.
Since August of this year 9 people have unlocked this achievement according to TrueAchievements.
I have wrote to all and only one person wrote back saying it popped mid air during a flight.
He gave details of the last three flights he took:
KLAX - MMXT ( which ended in a CTD on his way to the gate) UKBB- LZIB and KATL-KEYW.
The flight that the achievement popped was:
LOWW to LSZB.
He mentioned the achievement popped coming into approach.
I’ve carefully flown all the above routes IFR Low Airways/GPS Direct etc with/without using Autopilot. Have parking spots selected. Settings true to life.
Basically had everything setup to what they’re supposed to be. But no pop.
It feels like the achievement is not really bugged just since SU5 came out it changed a requirement for this and mostly all that are trying for this are not meeting it.
The guy mentioned above must’ve flown one of the routes and the achievement unlocked to 100% in the pilot profile achievements section, it was delayed popping on screen and when he flew the last route the xbox tracker finally caught on and it popped.
Those 9 people did something unknowingly right while flying/setup that we are all missing.
So if anyone here has unlocked this achievement after SU5 can you comment below the following in the hopes we can finally put this one to bed and move on.
Parking spots selected
If and what IFR plan you chose
What approach selected etc if you chose IFR plan
Autopilot used or not (Not AI one)
Basically as much details as possible that you can remember. Something as small as ATC did something different during the flight that could be the key.
I know this is a long read and I’m asking alot. But I’ve been trying daily since SU5 released to get this one and it’s driving me nuts
So hopefully we can get this figured out together and get this achievement popping for those that are trying.
