    it was more or less a joke on how alot of people asking for a modern supercar finally got their way after being repeatedly told it wasnt going to happen due to limitations
    anything is possible, i doubt it would be this update but i could see it coming in later updates, its just they cant find much crash test footage of them
    --- Post updated ---
    can i clarify i dont need a teaser to live, however, others might not fell the same...

    That argument still frustrates me because it's literally just the slippery slope fallacy.

    We have a cement mixer that doesn't pour cement and a fuel tanker that doesn't spill liquid or explode or anything and people don't seem to be up in arms about it, why should a fire truck be any different?

    We also have the opposite example applied: the vehicles squirt fuel out of the fuel tanks once the latter get ruptured!

    A modern supercar to be more precise, since we already have the classic supercar niche filled with the Bolide!
    --- Post updated ---
    All the ingredients are there: liquid sloshing, liquid spilling, so they remain to be seen in firetrucks too!

    Although, now that I think of it, the T-Series can only be the basis for the conversion-type firetruck. The other type is the one that's a thoroughbred firetruck, the cab-over one. I feel that Wentward is a better choice for making the thoroughbred cab-over type because the existing bus model, the DT40-L, shows that Wentward's expertise is in public utility vehicles.
    Plus, Wentward uses Gavril engines (the 8.9 TCM Inline-6 Diesel in the DT40-L) so it gets somewhat easier.

    I'm just the messenger. It's a official response from a og dev in regards to a fire truck (or any variation of what most people would call "fire truck"). Do I like that response and do I think it's a good reason. No. But it's the answer we have.

    I was referring to the argument the devs provided, not to you, sorry if you took it that way.

    One area I think fire trucks would be most possible in the game would be Light Rescue Fire Trucks.

    1995-Chevy-3500-Light-Rescue-1.jpg 1995-Chevy-3500-Light-Rescue-2.jpg

    They're a much simpler affair - mostly just a tool carrier equipped with a few onboard extinguishers and a small pump there in the back. There is no water tank onboard, and there are no deluge guns - only a short handheld firehose that must be hooked to a hydrant, which we wouldn't have the capacity to pick up and use anyway with the current walking system.

    Really, I think community members are more interested in having something to drive as fast as possible to their inevitable accident scenes then they are in actually putting out fires. This would scratch that itch nicely.

    In any case, I'm surprised that there hasn't been some sort of service body/utility bed added to the D-series. It'd be a handy thing to have, even outside of the fire truck. Those are used by electrical, phone, and other public utilities, the construction industry, park rangers, traffic control, and many other services. It's something that we know is possible from seeing the ambulances, and I was very surprised when it didn't make it into the D-series remaster.

    A minipumper could also work, it's very similar, albeit with a small water tank, pump, and hose.

    it doesn't mean anything for certain, but it is like the final stage of testing. usually when it gets updated, the new release is near. however, i find it kind of odd that the creator_program branch has not been updated in the last three months. i think this build is probably going to be released in the creator program branch.

    It itsn't ? It only means they developed a stable version, it could either be very close or they could add new features on top of that stable version and it would be pretty far away.

    wouldn't they have meetings before development stating x is going to be in this update, be prepared to work on y, as it is in the next update? qa_stable would probably mean that the new items are stable, and it needs some polishing for the release. based on how particular the company is with their standards and their update schedule, it wouldn't make sense to make a new feature that could potentially break the game/new features just before release. as a side note, congrats on your new computer!

    Thanks ! You're probably right, but i don't want to be too excited about something we don't know for sure.

    makes sense. i just thought that the update of a branch that doesn't get much attention and nobody noticing for a few days was a bit odd. :D
