    You can change the spawn locations of the lifeboat station missions only on the UK server, not the coastguard station missions. And the mapping system shows an image (the map) with set routes overlayed onto it. That is why missions spawn on or next to shipping / ferry routes, farm tracks etc. Because it does not spawn missions on the map, it spawns them on top of the routes which are placed over the top of the map. Hence it cannot tell what is water or land.

    Fantastically detailed answer, really really helpful and informative information - thank you! :thumbup:

    Intensive Care sounds like a Hospital Department, but could also be in reference to the patient transport side of critical care - from one hospital to another, but with a specialist vehicle and team instead of generic non-emergency or standard ambulance transporting.

    As for the other suggestions - I'd like to see the Highways Agency implemented in the future, not before the current emergency services are polished up and finished. Anything else, including VOSA, traffic wardens, and recovery, would in my opinion not add any value to an emergency services game. Frankly, I would prefer not to see them at all. But I do see how they can appeal to others. It just doesn't float my boat in the slightest.

    I completely agree with this it seems the is a shift of interest to the American one than the uk one they have alot more assets ie federal agencies and like of marine patrols and the newest one is tow trucks

    Bear in mind that the US one was created years before the UK one, so UK will always be playing catch-up. That pre-dates the current developers.

    In-game, there was an option to subscribe to it under the edit account tab, however I've had a good look and I cannot seem to find it. Possibly been removed or it's a bug that it's no longer visible.

    Alongside this, incredibly frustrating that the 4x4 isn’t able to tow either the flood or support trailer - especially given that the RRV is capable of towing the support trailer. Really needs reviewing I think as it’s more than capable of towing both. And should be able to hold enough crew for the boat too.

    The huge update to the mission list is finally here! We've been working hard on additional sorting and filtering options, and with your feedback, we can present an improved gaming experience around the mission list. [Blocked Image:]

    A few highlights of the update:

    New Sorting Options

    Which mission should be at the top of the list? You can now sort by age, credit reward, name, number of patients or prisoners, or simply keep the existing classic sorting, whatever you like.

    New Filters

    Filter by specific missions, e.g., missions you have already started, missions that are currently running, or missions where you haven't done anything yet. It's also possible to use different filters in various tabs, windows, or browsers and continue to alert afterwards. [Blocked Image:]

    Collapse Filters

    If you don't need the filter buttons right now, you can simply collapse them to save space.

    Do not hesitate and take a closer look at the new mission list today! [Blocked Image:]

    And of course, that's not all. We've added a series of additional features over the last few weeks! [Blocked Image:]

    Additional Staging Areas

    We have increased the number of Staging Areas - both for you individually and for your alliance! You can now have an impressive 4 Staging Areas active at the same time, and as a premium account, even 8!

    Alliance Event "Winter Weather"

    The new alliance event "Winter Weather" allows you to start seasonal winter missions at any time! Still need a few missions to complete your award? No longer a problem! Log in NOW and start the next alliance event!

    To wrap up this newsletter, we would like to take a moment to look into the future with you and show you what we are currently cooking up: [Blocked Image:…0/1f9d1_200d_1f373/32.png]

    More planned missions:

    So far, you can receive a maximum of 4 planned missions, i.e. missions such as security guards that are announced in advance and have a fixed duration. In the future, depending on how many stations you have, you will be able to receive up to 20 such missions.

    New graphic pack features:

    Currently, you can assign graphic packs to all stations in the game or to individual stations, soon it will also be possible to assign graphic packs to all stations that belong to a specific dispatch center. For example, you will be able to use certain graphics for certain states. It will also be possible to use the same graphics for all vehicles of a certain type in a station or dispatch center with one click.

    Ambulance Update

    Look forward to the ambulance update on which we are currently working. This will contain intensive care units so that patients who need intensive care can be transported to specialised hospitals.

    ... AND MORE!

    Needless to say, we are already working on the next content update, new features, and much, much more. So stay tuned for more details in our upcoming developer blogs!

    Please continue to send us your feedback - what do you want to see next in the game? We continue to work tirelessly to make Mission Chief the best game experience for you in 2024 and beyond!

    I agree that SAR 4x4s should be able to crew at least 2, if not 4.

    I believe when using multi-trained crew, unless a vehicle requires more than one training such as Armed Traffic Car, the game will only register the staff member as having one of the training courses that the staff member has completed, and ignore the others.

    This is using the same template as the Kodiaq's I posted before for police & ambulance.

    Also had a go at the new TTLs (Turntable Ladders) for London Fire Brigade (LFB)



    Totally get where you’re coming from. I’d imagine there’s some complicated coding requirements to doing it, or maybe it’s just not been considered worthwhile as a business change - bear in mind they have to consider their profits above all else, otherwise it’s not worth their time to run the game at all. That all being said, I do think it’s worth pushing and would like it as a realism update.

    On a side note, the capitalisation of words comes across as shouting and makes your posts hard to read. Italics would look better and you wouldn’t come across as angry - which probably puts people off supporting you. Either way, good suggestion in essence :)

    So at the moment all prisoners are treated exactly the same. I’d like to propose a change to that.

    For medical patients in the US version, the patient codes allow either BLS or ALS ambulances to convey depending on the type of patient.

    I want to propose 2 types of prisoner:

    1. Compliant. These can be transported in IRVs or Cell Vans (New unit suggestion, not ARV Cell Van)

    2. Non-Compliant. These must be transported in a Cell Van due to their behaviour.

    I think the type of prisoner should be determined by a % chance of compliance. The lower-risk the call, the higher the chance of compliance. So something like a bar fight or domestic incident would generate a low % chance of compliance, whereas something like illegal internet activity would generate a higher chance of compliance.

    Finally for the Van, it could transport 2 compliant or 1 non-compliant prisoner.

    Or add the ability for any engine with the ALS staff to act as a paramedic engine where it treats but doesn't transport, whilst still leaving this unit unaltered for those players who want it for what it does? Seems like a simpler "fix"?
