Hello, I was wondering what is the mechanism behind the tags of forum members?
Right now it says I'm a "beginner", at what point does this change to the next level up?
Is it related to the length of time on the forum or the number of posts or something like that? or is there a way to relate I to the length of time playing the game?
I ask because I've been playing MC for more than a year now and would consider myself a little more than a "beginner" at this point?
I know it doesn't really matter, but to some people in the forum, they may not take on the input of someone labelled as "Beginner" as much as say an "Intermediate" or "experienced", even though they may have been playing the game a long time and just not joined this forum until recently.
The idea of being able to upgrade individual units is an intriguing one. This would also bring an extra bit of strategy into the game, of deciding whether or not to send units with the upgrades or a regular base unit will suffice.
Or for adding foam to water carriers, or a welfare augment to a BASU unit?
I like these ideas also - they'd probably need to introduce a Foam tender before a foam upgrade could be added to WrCs and a dedicated welfare unit before a welfare upgrade for both BASU and ICCU (possibly Crew Carrier as well) would be needed a bit all great ideas!.
I think the ability to upgrade units, in general, would be a great addition, like adding extra capabilities to ambulances to carry more advance equipment or traffic cars to have a TPAC addon (although a TPAC may be more suited as a staff training course)
Firstly, I personally don't get what it is for???
Is it for a situation where say I have 5 ambulance stations in one place (to accommodate a large number of ambulances In that single IRL station), I use this "complex" to combine them into 1 building which will show a list of all the vehicles in those 5 stations at once?? (EDIT: having read what I put below, it cant' be used to combine 5 ambulance stations, but maybe that should be the use for it)
I have asked members of my alliance for feedback to pass onto you and will post with an update during the weekend but here are some initial comments so far:
- (as others have said above) the cost is too much, especially if it is 1.5mil to add each building.
- The requirement for each building to be fully expanded is ridiculous, as not a single fire station in the world would have 24 appliances attached to it. Since this addition is in part claimed to aid realism, what part of 24veh / station is realistic (yes ik many don't play that realistic but some people do)
- the limit of only 2 of each type of station per complex (see attached image from FAQ section) doesn't make sense, if it's intended to combine into these "superhubs"
- (question) What is the 10km radius for? why would stations 10km away want to be combined?
- (question) once created, do all the vehicles "come out of" the single building complex icon, or where the original station was.
(Edit: I forgot to attach the image I mentioned!)
Complete novice, looking to learn. I'm from the South West.
How do I join your alliance
Hi Thats_Spicey apologies for the late reply.
You can join our Alliance by follwing this link: https://www.missionchief.co.uk/alliances/284
We look forward to hearing from you!
We continue our active nationwide recruitment campaign.
with special interest of players covering the following regions:
► South East England (excl. London)
► South West England
► East Midlands/Eastern England
► Northern England/Scottish boarders
► Northern Scotland (Highlands & Islands)
► Mid & West Wales
Although we will consider recruits from all other areas as well.
We are also proud to announce the launch of our Buddy Scheme - an initiative to help new, inexperienced players earn more, and therefore level up and expand quicker. The scheme involves experienced players sharing high-value missions for new players to send a single unit to, thus the new player receiving the full payout of the mission as well!
Do you guys have plans for an fire update
I Believe there are plans for another fire update in the future, but it will come after the big Police Update; which will come after the next EMS update. - none of which have any kind of timeframe set as far as I can make out from other posts.
Speaking of whilst it's not technically not a police vehicle will we see bobbies on the beat added eventually?
I personally don't see a need for this, since any incidents they would deal with would require a vehicle to attend anyway to take prisoners away.
So basically like how you have select X ammount of RRV's for the ARR, it will dispatch X ammount of trained personnel?
Although I would guess if it was a double crewed ambulance it wald have to send/be counted as 2.
You can do this with the current AARR set up.
Just as CC as a custom category to units that have Critical Care staff assigned.
Do not tick the dispatch just as custom class box.
This way it will dispatch is either it's normal class or can dispatch as CC
I did use this extensively as I worked to add CC staff to all ambulances.
I know this, however as I said in my original post, I don't like having them all in the same custom category - since that is the category which is shown dispatch centre/alarm window - plus i also use custom categories do define different types of types of each vehicle (HEMS RRV vs Ambulance service Trust RRV etc.)
It would probably be better for us to make the mission require a certain number of police officers rather than vehicles
That sounds like a better implementation, providing they introduce a crew carrier style unit for police
Leading on from this, could it be possible to make say an event police van/operational support unit, that counts as like 2 (or more) police cars for use at planned events such as concerts? since right now having to use up 7 police units at a single concert (for an hour) feels excessive when IRL (from what I've experienced) it's usually just teams officers on foot operating from a van or two, with possibly a car for wider patrols.
IK it'll have to wait until they start thinking about police updates, but it'd be something nice to have on the ideas list .
I'd like to suggest adding a filter for a crew's (or assigned crew's) specific training. the main use of this would be for critical care staff, where you can just have a critical care ARR button and it sends the nearest unit with a CC trained crew member onboard/assigned to it.
I know you can assign your own custom vehicle categories for a similar effect but I'd prefer an ambulance, RRV, GP etc. to not all be grouped into the one catogory.
This could come in useful in the future as well if more types of training are added - since not all CC staff may be trained with all other types of training (if you get what I mean).
I'd be interested to see your opinions in this idea,
Ahh, Great Thank You! I Like the time-critical call idea look forward to it coming out in the next year or 2 then
I'm not sure if they act as Critical Care, I just thought if a Critical Care trained staff member were in it surely, they'd be able to use their skills?
I just wondered whether there is a difference between using a Rapid Response Vehicle or using a Community First Responder from a home response location, considering an RRV is 4,000 (/20 coins) while a CFR is 2,500 (/12 coins)??? Especially since a CFR can be crewed with critical care staff
IK this is an old post, however, as I'm sure some of you are aware, this bug still exists. not sure if it happens all the time bui i definatly noticed it today.
I wrote this post in a bit of a daze this morning in response to a chat myself and some people in my alliance talking about small stations being >300,000 credits for some people, I completely forgot that the station only has one slot to start with (thinking is automatically came with 6) thus the wording of my original post.😑
I'd like to suggest the introduction of extra-small fire stations. These would be ably to hold 1-2 fire appliances.
I suggest this because accross the UK the majority of on-call fire stations only have 1 maybe 2 appliances and it seems a waste of space - for those players playing hyper-realistic (like myself) who only use the IRL units per station - To use a current small fire station for these stations since there's always 4-5 bays left going to waste per station.
A member of our alliance suggested the idea of Trio-stations (a station where all 3 services can be based/dispatched from). I know it is rather niche however there's already the ambulance expansion to fire stations, and a number of local authorities have begun moving towards these hubs for all 3- (or in some cases 4-) services being based out of a unified station.
The inclusion of this in came would help increase the realism and reduce the need for placing the 3 separate stations in the same place.
hi, I've had a number of new players complain of missions that require units that they do not have (and dont have enough stations to require) are spawning.
For example, one of our members has 3 police stations but is getting missions requiring dog units - even though you are not required to buy a dog unit until after 6 police stations.
As long as your dispatch centers don't have the coverage area ticked in the edit settings on any of the dispatch centers, you'll generate calls just fine
Ahh! Thanks, that explains why i've stopped getting certain missions!
