Just seen something kinda funny, the new bike responders have the exact same speed as any other units. just watched one follow and keep up with another ambulance on a motorway. I now have a mental image of a cycle responder holding onto the back of a blue lighting ambulance. Looks like those are going to need custom vehicle tags as they are just considered ambulances,

Interesting, good to know. I had a look for AO style setting for inspectors but being a personel, and not a unit, there wasnt any. But might explain why some missions "Auto clear" and others don't
Inspectors auto transport prisoners?
I take it this is all via POI system.
If so I take it for the likes of Glasgow and Edinburgh I'm going to need to place all 3 levels of POI as they do cover stuff from small single props right up to the A380 at Glasgow and sure Edinburgh can handle up to the 747s although rarely does these days if at all.
I was wondering about this. Does placing a large POI allow for the spawning of small and medium stuff as well, or do you need be placing all 3?
Google "Aerodrome Manual" for whichever airport - I've found Bristol and Bournemouth airport manuals both list the appliances.
Im looking through the bournemouth one, and I cant find any kind of list for appliances
ah i see, will maybe help anyone based up North reading then haha
Definetly, and will be helpful when I eventually get up there
Wrong end of the country for me unfortunately, Starting in Dorset but I basically cover most of the South West at the moment. But thank you
Anybody found a good source for vehicle lists, etc yet?
Yeah, when is the patch that adds EF Typhoons for QRA?
was just thinking I'm going to need to ask for some explanation about what's what. Thank you for the detailed write up
Also got these bits of info if you are interested, not necessarily to do CRT locations specifically, but good for quick reference/realistic setup
These are the sources I've used so far
CRT Fleet list:
As it currently stands, Home Response Locations can be used for all 3 primary discliplines, but no matter what vehicle is located in the HRL, it appears in the rescue tab. It would be great to either be able to manually assign a "role" for the building or it to auto assign based upon the vehicle assigned to the HRL. So Ambulance officers would apppear under rescue and Fire officers under firehouse, etc
I have one for each service, but in all honesty I would love more options such as turning off stations as a station setting, and the ability to assign a station to more than one dispatch centre etc... messy doesn't even begin to cover it...
Yeah, exactly what im finding and why I asked. Glad im not the only one.
I have six regional dispatch centres (South east, south west, Wales, etc.). I don't honestly know whether it makes any difference, one national one would do the same job I think.
I also have a dispatch centre for not ready or remote stations which is turned off so limits call spawning in odd places.
Yeah, that was kinda my approach, except there is the "Coverage area" option that might be ideal in avoiding having large scale missions spawn miles away from where the assets are located. But yeah, leaving SAR stuff in its own dispatch centre because sometimes i can get overwhelmed with certain mission types
I currently have dispatch centres deployed for each organisation, i.e Dorset & Wiltshire F&RS has a dispatch centre, Dorset police has one and the entirity of SWASTF has one, but Im starting to hit the limitations of this and wondering how others deploy dispatch centres? Is it better to have one per county, for all disciplines or seperated like i've started with? Currently finding it getting more and more messy as I expand into neighbouring counties
I currently have 3x Lifeboat operators and 1x Crit Care personel assigned to an ILB. Does the crit care personel need to be Lifeboat operator too?
Currently the "Rescue boat assist coastguard, persons cut off by tide" Requires an ILB trailer and you can't just use an ILB. Is this just limitations of SAR Part 1 and so is a bodge solution for now, or is it possible we could get this mission changed to allow for ILBs to be deployed instead of the trailer version?
I found this to be the case originally but when i turned on my whole area after playing with the SAR part it calmed down.
I would get what you described however I now get 1-2 per 280+ missions.
I personally get more Hotel Fire MAJOR than cruise liner missions.
It can be looked into though, I'll add it to my list 👍
I've been tweaking my setup and expanding coastguard stations but just got 3 Major evacs in 10 mission spawns, 2 almost back to back. So I definetly think something isnt quite right.
HEMS needs overhauled majorly.
It needs reintroduced to calls but make it so that it is a % chance on calls that's needed and then calls that have loads of patients make it so that only a % of patients need it.
They also need to be able to act as a full ambulance too so they can be sent to do patient transfer calls this would be really good for folk playing remote areas where transfers to specialist hospitals is needed.
Total overhaul of ambulances, with the addition of advanced paramedics and doctors, then yeah, HEMS requirement would be cool (though i'd have HEMS requirement be completeable by both HEMS and HEMS Cars) but just adding HEMS requirements to current missions without any other chnages would suck. Though yeah, I do agree in removing ambulance requirements or change it so that RRV was sufficient would be a nice QoL change, though I dont know how realistic that would be
