  • We have bought this up with them 3 or 4 times for the AU version

  • It's very difficult to play this game using realistic vehicle placement because the call generation is not realistic - there aren't many cities that have a hospital fire, bridge collapse, major building collapse, tanker spill all in the space of a few minutes! Many players start off with the intention of sticking to realistic vehicle placement but unless you're in a particularly dense city or you have a busy alliance backing to assist you or you turn the call rate right down in the settings it d…

  • You have to have achieved the 3rd rank to be able to create a new graphics pack. On English versions this is Senior Firefighter.

    Yeah it's common. I've had it a lot too. We have a heap of beginners guides and content within the forum area of our alliance and people just create temporary accounts to get into the alliance and copy it all word for word to put in their own forums. Some of it took many hours to put together. Frustrating but not much you can do. Just take it as a compliment, they wouldn't copy it if it was no good.

  • Quote from ChrisB: “I underatand what you mean by being avaible but maybe only avaible units are displayed. ” No I mean how do you know the owner of those vehicles is actually going to be playing the game at the time and dispatching the units? For example, say you have an area where there are 4 hazmat trucks but they are all owned by 1 member who isn't online when the alliance mission with hazmat trucks is created? Or they are having a week off the game? - or a bigger example, say there are ~30 …

  • Not a bad idea but the problem is that even if the members have x number of each unit that doesn't mean they will be available for or be dispatched to alliance missions and events. Better than no clue at all I guess but I question how helpful it will be in practice.

  • Quote from wings203: “I've reported several bugs/errors in the game (some over 6 months ago), yet still none of them have been corrected. A bit disappointing... I get they like to add new content, but you need to fix other things before moving on. I feel as if someone on the team could simply spend ONE day going through the list, they could fix most of the errors... Just a few code edits here and there, and the end result would please us all. ” Completely agree. You really don't have to look far…

  • I agree with @SemperDeadly it shouldn't be added. The confusion comes from the naming "Small" and "Large". If you think of a station that has the wildland abilities as having to be large then yes it makes sense that it should be added to small stations because a lot (even most?) of them would only be small. However all expansions are, and I think should remain, a higher adaptation of the game. Something that comes later and should cost more via the purchase of a "large" fire station. To fix up t…

    It is ridiculous to think that you should get a transfer or reimbursement for coins or credits that you have spent in a different version of the game. You have already spent it - it buys you entertainment and you have already collected, you don't get to spend it twice. If you have been paying to go to a gym on the other side of your town/city and the same company opens a gym near your house you don't say well how about a $500 credit for the $500 that I have spent at your other gym do you? At bes…

  • I agree, the game is far too easy with combo units. In Australia in real life we have Hazmat Pumpers (fire truck + Hazmat) but we have decided not to add it to the AU game as it would make it even easier than it already is. There needs to be at least a small challenge.

    Just use the mobile browser on your phone. I gave up on the app a long time ago. The browser is quicker and you get the benefit of all of the animated graphics working properly too.

    It's a very short term problem. We went through the exact same thing when the Police content pack dropped on the AU server. Without warning players everywhere were getting K9 and SWAT calls that they needed training to complete so everything was at a standstill until staff could be trained. It was a pain for about 5-7 days but honestly after that it was smooth sailing again, especially if you are in a big alliance with a lot of help around. It's different if you are a solo player or in a small a…

  • Quote from wings203: “There has been a fair bit of discussion lately about how the forest/wildfire missions are very rare to generate. That to me sounds as if they control the percentage chance of a mission appearing, therefore the frequency of earthquake missions need to be reduced dramatically. ” There is no such thing as a setting for the percentage chance of a mission appearing. I know people have been saying there is, they can wish for it all they want but it doesn't exist, at least when Se…

    Yep exactly, or even a "problem member" just creating another game account - you would add them back into your alliance or another admin would add them into their alliance without even realising. That's why there is no point managing the individuals, just focus on managing the behaviour.

  • I have all quints and rescue engines so to get around this I just take a fire truck off the ARR for each ladder/rescue for that call. For example, if a call needs 2 ladders and 5 fire trucks then I just set the ARR to be 2 ladders and 3 fire trucks. Or if a call needs 1 ladder, 2 rescues and 6 fire trucks then I set the ARR to 1 ladder, 2 rescues and 3 fire trucks.

    Quote from andy73: “browser isn’t possible during the day whilst at work or out and about ” Gorilla means use the mobile browser on your phone instead of the app. It's much better.

    I have seen this suggested before but I agree, great idea.

  • That call is spawned at a POI: Tram stop, Train station & Hospital so I would check that the underlying POI hasn't been deleted, either your own or an alliance member's. You can always place additional POIs to see if it will regenerate.

    It seems that the issue is that you are based in the UK but playing the US version of the game. The requirements are likely fine from a US point of view (8 water tankers is not unrealistic for a very large Australian bush fire either). Instead of trying to change the whole US version to fit the requirements of what you're trying to achieve (i.e. UK methodology) it might be a good time to consider switching to the UK version? Painful to start again, definitely (I did it from US to AU) but at leas…

    Yes I know what you're saying and I agree with you there should be a way to upgrade from a small station to a large station with coins. I just don't agree with allowing any extensions on small stations.
