    There are ideas for it down the line, with support from someone with knowledge of the operations. No time line is set yet as obviously we've got lots of things we want beforehand that may be more relevant to the game.

    There is nothing we can do on the forums regarding this. You need to contact the developers using either Facebook or the in game help section and raise this and they will hopefully be able to get your alliance back. I can't however promise anything.

    I think enough is enough now with the bickering. To clarify, messaging people to join your alliance is not against the game's terms of service though it is frowned upon so if you are going to do it, do it at your own risk. You can continue this discussion between yourselves in PM.

    We will add units when deemed appropriate for an update, or if it fits in with something we or the devs are planning. There's no need to limit ourselves to one a year when we want to see a lot more than that.

    We have been considering different command levels where a job will require X number of level 2, 3 and 4 officers respectively. I doubt it'll be implemented for a long time yet though.

    This all depends on which services you intend to do. A lot of players build one county, then move onto the next. Most services supply fleet lists as requested on https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/ though some services offer more information than others. Wikipedia may offer some guidance on where stations are or what units are at cretain stations. Some more info for fire services can be found here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…ces_in_the_United_Kingdom and then select which of the counties you'd like to look into.

    The only thing I can think is having the car graphic for non emergency, then the CAD graphic for emergency with the APNG button ticked so it doesn't cycle through. The issue with that is any time they're just roaming around it'll show the car.

    Maybe the LRP would be a good idea. But the Water Ladders would be difficult as some services have different names for trucks. Like the 9m ladder one. Some have 10.5m etc.

    Some areas call trucks Pumps/Pump Ladders. WrL/WrT there are too many variants and would get confusing in game. And the water tank sizes would also vary depending on what the service have ordered.


    My area has LRPs for rural locations. We have I think 2 or 3 Mercedes Sprinters with rear body locker setup and a 4x4 Land Rover for forest fires. then the general Trucks vary in size depending on the location.

    In the main city/towns we have Large Scania Trucks then going into more rural locations we have slightly smaller MAN Trucks.

    Our water carrier is a bulk foam and water carrier so dual purpose.

    As I've said, for this game a pump is a pump so we don't have plans to add each individual type out there. LRPs aren't consistent across services much like all types so the argument of having them doesn't work. Likely an LRP won't be a Land Rover either - that would be an L4P so won't carry rescue equipment. As I've said, we're not interesting in micro-managing each individual unit that each service has.

    Would you be able to ask the devs?

    None of us are aware of who is on the team - we don't deal with that side of things. I, for example, am exclusively UK based and don't do anything with the Australian side beyond having an Australian account from 2018 on the US game. I'll be honest I don't know anything about the development, who's running it or if they even have an account on these forums as it was not them who requested this sub-forum to be created - thus there was no initial connection between players such as yourself and the AU content team through this forum.

    These were legacy from the US game that were carried over when the UK game was created. The UK game initially was effectively a copied version with the same missions but vehicles had different names. We've been slowly distancing the games since then but this is obviously something which was never removed.

    How far away is the base from the job? If you have a lot of units, the game will limit how many load to save on data so ARRs won't dispatch vehicles that aren't shown on the list at the time. There's no need to scroll to the bottom as there's a button at the top of the units to load all of them.
