I'm new here on the forums but I've been playing for a while. One think I've always found frustrating is the lack of compatibility that exists sometimes between real departments and mission chief requirements. For Example: the cruise ship sinking. It requires 15 Rescue stations, which makes some sense because the game would assume that at that point one would have enough ambo's to handle the call. However, in my alliance I'm San Francisco Fire Department. They run all 16 of their ALS Ambulances through one ambulance station, which causes me to have a dilemma. I want to be realistic, but I also want to get more calls. I would easily have the possibility to clear the call with that one ambulance station, but in the games eyes, by just having one rescue station I'm unable to clear the call.
The same problem exists with regular fire calls. The game assumes I only have 1 Engine per station, when In reality I might have 3 or 4 in one. If the requirements were changed from station numbers to unit numbers then it would allow for much more realistic play.
Does anyone else think the same? Any revisions you would make to my idea?
