I have not a lot to add but.
1. Don’t devalue forum posting players vs Facebook players. Some of us don’t want to be posting on Mark Zuckerberg censorhappy network or be members of it at all. A lot of us aren’t members at all.
2. SAR / MR etc. all call on hailing frequencies that police and fire dispatch hear here in Chicago. If you are on Lake Michigan and you call 911 from your cellular phone and say your yacht broke down and two people are having life threatening events? The dispatch center is going to be the one getting coast guard boats moving not you. You don’t directly call on the coast guard usually. If you’re lost hiking in the woods? Do you call 911 or do you call some search and rescue number? Here we call 911 and they dispatch or call out to forest services / SAR.
What you’re saying is tier two and isn’t an emergency IS AN EMERGENCY.
3. Tow trucks and vehicle breakdowns. We already deal with breakdowns of public buses. Throw the tow trucks in as a low priority update. The more you can add onto the simulation the better it is. You can’t make it worse by adding things. Just have ability for people that don’t want such missions to opt out of them in their settings. Put people in control of what they receive instead of deciding for them what they will receive. I frankly find it odd to be receiving calls about a public bus breakdown but never anything about a stalled private vehicle needing a tow, which is a commonality on our roads that the police tend to until the tow truck shows up. They have to sit there sometimes for an hour diverting traffic.
I really don’t see what the gigantic fuss is about. And in my opinion I find a lot of this thread offensive.
