    Without a semi you can not transport the "trailer" to the mission.

    Yes I am aware of that. That is not the issue here. If you refer to the original message of the post you can see I was referring to the fact that I was only intending to use the semi to move a water tanker trailer and that I didn't want to use it for the mass casualty trailer.

    The issue is simply related to an odd purchasing requirement for the Semi itself when using small stations.


    Listen I'm really not here to start an argument. I am simply here to report my findings.

    Unless someone can point me to an actual development statement showing that this was intentional, I'm going to continue describing it as a bug because it simply seems illogical.

    In my opinion, it seems logical that two different buildings that are capable of holding the same-exact type of vehicle should be able to move that vehicle between them.

    Hopefully someone responsible for reading and responding to bug threads will eventually respond and factually answer for the issue.

    Thank you.

    Um i might be completely mistaken here but i have a small station with a trailer and crew cab. all i did was use up to of my 5 parking spots.

    {(edit!!!!) I have the normal station lol sorry!!}

    No worries! My simplest workaround to this rather strange bug was to simply buy the equipment in a larger station and move them to the small station that I wanted it at in the first place.

    actually its not a bug - the building types are different - you can only transfer units between the same building type

    So it would seem by current design but one might argue that it seems illogical to prohibit transferring between two different types of buildings if those two buildings are intended to hold the same types of units. Hence from my perspective it clearly logically seems like a bug.

    Yes I'm aware as I mentioned, I am just reporting the clear bug. My intention was to use the water trailer only.

    Ummmmm... my recommendation is to buy the regular station. In the long run it is worth it and you can add whatever you want in terms of extensions and equipment. Solves all your problems mentioned above really. Also....remember.... better to buy the MCI Vehicle and not the trailer as the trailer does not transport.

    Why do you need an EMS Chief in a clinic? You do not need anyone to authorize transports to clinics. You send an ambulance and they transport. And you most certainly can move ems chiefs from EMS Station to EMS Station. I did it this morning. And if you want an EMS Chief in a Fire Station for fire based EMS, then just add one to the fleet there.

    I don't need it there, that's just where I decided to put it. I'm simply trying to reporting a bug about being unable to move the vehicle. I have checked time and time again and I am completely unable to move an EMS Chief from a CLINIC to a EMS Station. I am aware that they can be moved between EMS stations.

    Buying a Tanker Semi Truck Trailer in a Small Fire Station is impossible because you require a "Crew cab semi" which, for some reason, cannot be purchased in a small fire station unless you have a "Mass Casualty Trailer Extension." The Mass Casualty Trailer Extension cannot be built on a small fire station as that is a ambulance related extension.

    These issues do not occur in a "regular / non-small" fire station because the Mass Casualty Trailer Extension requirement to buy a Crew Cab semi does not exist in those stations.

    Seems like the developer tried to prevent people from using crew cabs in small stations but did it in a very odd and confusing way which makes it seem unintentional and like a bug.

    Don't think that is a bug.... In the US version it has always been that way. And no one has ever had a problem with it that I am aware.

    That definitely does not make any sense.

    If a player is able to purchase a specific given vehicle type in two different types of buildings, then they should be allowed to move that vehicle between those two buildings.

    If I can move an Ambulance from an Ambulance Station to a Fire Station with Ambulance Extension, I should be able to do the same to other EMS units.

    You can purchase and place a EMS Command vehicle into a Fire Station with EMS Extension, however you CANNOT send people from a Fire Station with EMS Extension to a EMS School Training course, meaning they cannot receive EMS Command Training.

    You also cannot transfer a EMS Command vehicle from a Fire Station with EMS Extension to a Medic Station or Clinic, it will only let you transfer it to other fire stations. The programming appears to treat the EMS Command Vehicle as a fire vehicle HOWEVER...

    You CAN purchase the EMS Command Vehicle within a EMS station or clinic...and then from there you can train those people with EMS Command Training.

    2 Separate Bugs:

    1) Employees within a Fire Station with EMS Extension CANNOT be sent to EMS Academy Courses

    2) The EMS Command Vehicle cannot be transferred between a Fire Station with EMS Extension and EMS Stations or Clinics.

    P.S. I lost 40K :( trying to figure out this issue so hopefully it can be fixed to prevent others from being confused?(
