There are 10 Nostromo Logs in Alien Isolation. Finding all of these Collectibles will earn you the Archivist trophy or achievement.
You can see which ones you have found by opening the map menu. Each Nostromo Log has its own name, so you can easily keep track of what’s missing.
The logs are saved automatically when you pick them up. There is no need to get them again if you die.
Missing collectibles can be picked up via mission select at any time.
You should get the first 8 Nostromo Logs in Free Roam during Mission 16. Just load up this mission and ignore the main objective. The reason for this is that you need all of the tools that are unlocked later in the game. You get the level 3 access tuner in mission 15. Only after this point you can get all Nostromo Logs. Certain tools are required to open doors.
The way free roam works is that there are 4 Transit Stations: Lorenz Systech Spire, Sevastopol Scimed Tower, Solomon’s Habitation Tower and Engineering. You can travel between these areas via the train station (there is a red sign above each station that says where the train is going). Each of these areas has elevators that bring you to the other side areas, such as Seegson Synthetics. When you scroll over an elevator on your map and zoom in, you can see where it will bring you.
