Attempt 1: Asobo 787. Crazy low frames near airport. Did change sim rate to make it a little faster, but hours later, no achievement.
Attempt 2: Salty 747. Crazy low frames near airport again. Did not change sim rate, so flew the entire 10 hours. Landed successfully, but still no achievement. Noticed in the logbook that the flight was logged, but it didn’t count a takeoff. How the **** do you fly anywhere without taking off??
Attempt 3: Salty 747 again. Tried to fly it overnight. Woke up the next morning only to find that the sim had CTD, about 8 hours into the flight.
Attempt 4: Daher TBM 930 to get both this and the Saddle Sore achievement. I read that you had to use the in-game ATC for it to count the takeoff, so I did exactly that. After flying the whole route, with only a bit of sim rate adjusting, I taxied to the gate and shut off. A loading circle appeared in the bottom right, which I took to mean that the flight had been logged and saved. Still no achievement. Much to my dismay, the logbook doesn’t even have a record of the flight at all, it just disappeared. Not even a bugged logbook entry to show for the time I had spent all day.
I’m at my wit’s end. I have wasted nearly 40 hours trying to chase after these bugged af achievements. Is there any way at all of forcing these achievements or should I just give up on achievements forevermore? It looks like Asobo is not going to fix this any time soon.
