      Please update the FIRST post of your topic to include important information about your mods and their progress. Since you follow your topics and respond to them (hopefully anyway) you know what people most commonly want to/need to know about your mod and it's current state/progress. If your information will not fit within the first post of the topic, please contact a staff member and we will make it so that you own the second/third (as-needed) posts are yours as well. Having the most important information in the first posts of the topic will hopefully reduce the repetitive questions asked by having the most important information related to a mod within the first post.

      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

I just got done creating some concepts for roof venting the other week. Last Sunday, I started work on healing for walking but minor injured civilians. Video for that one coming soon.

I'd have gotten it done sooner but then I have real life responsibilities that take priority over modding. Progress would move a lot faster if more people tried learning how to script, model, texture or make lights for the playable vehicles. I'd really appreciate the help from people. In fact, you could be the person who helps get a difficult mod asset completed.

whats the best program to learn to mod with been a long time scene I have done editing off like chaging a vehcles colour from one to the other or from one department to another and that was for GTA San andreas the old GTA SA so I will be willing to try and learn some modding for Em4 and hopefully learn something new/a new skill

Best bet would be zmodeler, my guess is that whatever is the latest release of v2 would work best with importing/exporting. unfortunately as far as I'm aware there aren't any import/export scripts for 3ds max specific to em4

The best program to learn with is the one you are comfortable using.

Dont worry about import/export stuff. Just figure out how to model, and worry about the exporting process later on.

I need some guidance. What length of ladders do volunteer fire departments usually have? Up to what floor would it reach?

I would say somewhere from 100ft to 150ft. My local volunteer department has a 100ft 110ft and a 200ft.

Sorry, I wasnt being clear. I meant ground ladders. 

How long do these usually go, and how heavy are they? Do they need 2 people or more to carry them?

I would say they should reach up to second Floor and must be carried by to firefighters.

My department carries 16 foot straight ladders and 20 foot straight ladders for second floor access (or they can be used as roof ladders), 24 and 28 foot extension ladders for 2-3 floor access (These consist of one base section and one fly section), and we have one 35 foot extension ladder for 3-4 floor access (this also has one base and one fly). the 16 and 20 footers can be carried by one person, the 24 and 28 can be both carried and raised by one person if needed but preferably two people. and the 35 should be raised by 2, preferably 3 or 4 people. Also, we carry a 10 foot and 14 foot attic ladders for for use inside of structures but could be used outside to get to very low hanging roofs and such.

Your average fire department will carry a 12 foot roof ladder and a 24 foot extension ladder on an engine. Second floor access only. Trucks may carry 36 foot or longer ladders depending on the needs of the area. (3+ stories) 12 foot ladder is roof access for a single story building, one firefighter. 24 foot ladder can be raised by one firefighter. 36 foot requires 2 firefighters minimum. Largest ground ladder that I am aware of is a 50 foot ground ladder (4th or 5th floor), and the only place that I've ever heard of carrying them is Boston FD. It requires four firefighters.

The ground ladders that my Vol. department uses are 12ft and 24ft. The 12ft can easily be carried by one person. A 24ft ladder can be carried by a single person as well.

Thanks for the information everyone.

Will a 24 foot extension ladder work for roof operations, or should I create numerous ladders for various lengths?

I was previously informed about roof ladders. For now, I will not implement those until I get the normal ladders done.

This is what I have so far. Aerial ladder logic works just fine. It also works for residential buildings.

There's no way for me to fix that clipping issue. I cant seem to find a way to make the ladder tip move into a specific place.

Generally 20ft or 24 ft extension will get you up a 2 floor residential. Most companies will carry one of either length on an engine plus a roof ladder. However for the way the map you have is a rig with a 20' or 24' should work perfectly.

Progress on the ground ladder script. I have found a way to make 2 people carry the ladder.

What you have looks fine, you can also check the NFPA guidelines which will give you a good idea of what each type of truck is supposed to carry (in an ideal world)

https://www.cattco.org/files/nfpa_1901_2009_engine_equipment_list.pdf

I'll see which of these things I can implement in the mod. I'm currently looking at pike poles and halligan tool functionality, but I have no idea where to start on the process.
