Montana Mod v2.1 (In Development) Download link removed by Authors

Recommended Posts

I am replying to the older thread of the 2020 parade in Dillion as I've been inactive on this forum for a while. So forgive me for it being an old reply.
Most people have a misrepresented idea of rural small towns in the plains and mountainous regions of America. A lot of people are deeply religious and lean to the right, especially with modern political movements of supporting Law Enforcement supported by numerous right leaning politicians. 
Although most rural and underpopulated departments have older gear compared to bigger populations and agencies with more funding, departments normally get new cars once every 7-10 years, even in extremely underfunded and underpopulated towns. Fire Departments can typically last for longer as they are used a lot less. I remember I stopped and visited a few departments in a lot rural and somewhat populated ruralish area in my state and most of the 10-15+ year old trucks had less than 15-20k miles on them.
You also to imagine that Montana has "frontier" counties, which are counties that are so rural with so much land and sparse population that a lot of people use firearms as means of a way of life. Think of it this way, if you don't live in the largest town in the area, you're probably far away from town/living on a ranch. Jobs aren't that easy to come by in underpopulated areas. Therefore in order to survive the wild, which includes evading bears and other dangerous wildlife, you must have a firearm to live.
You also have to understand that severely rural areas have history of Deputizing people en masse to catch wanted criminals, or allowing citizens to join apprehension task forces.  The most extreme recent example was in Hinsdale County, Colorado where THE Sheriff was killed while chasing a bank robber, leaving his Undersheriff gravely injured. This lead to the Undersheriff to Deputize all citizens in the County and call them up for service in a Sheriff's Posse to begin the search for the bank robbers.

Hello, how can we install the Montana Mod v2.1 please?

whoa, whoa! You can't just go off installing any mod you want! First, you need to give me the big number on the front of your mom's credit card, along with the 3 small numbers on the back, and dont forget the expiration date. /s

^^^For legal reasons, that was a joke. This mod isn't released.

Okay thank you very much! Not cool the joke 🙃

Now that Project Nostalgia is somewhat stable, I can walk away from it and focus on Montana. Here are 2 callouts I've improved and sorted out a bit.

For my long term goals, there are a lot of expansions I want to add to the mod, like over a dozen new vehicles and tons more scripts, functions and callouts.

All these expansions cannot be worked on now and I hope all of you can settle for the bare minimum. I really don't have much else to show for besides these incremental changes.

I am hoping to get the mod released this year, barring any major life incidents. Who knows what the future holds.

The mod is still alive, I would prefer people didn't ask so often because if anything came up, I'd tell you guys.

Functioning ladders is a pretty dam good accomplishment. Great job Itch. Looking forward to seeing what else you have in store for us.

This is not an announcement or any plan, or update for the mod. I am posting these here for archival purposes only.

If anyone does feel interested in including these vehicles in the mod, please let me know if any department would have a 1962 rig in 2014-today.

I have a cousin who is a volunteer firefighter in Ravalli County, MT. He told me that their oldest truck is a 1974 Ford brush truck on a pickup chassis similar to this one. http://media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/7443/9197799_1.jpg?v=8CC87BD44FFA290

It's certainly possible that smaller areas would have trucks a decade older. I live in Los Angeles, our neighboring county agency, Orange County Fire Authority, has a 1970 Crown foam tender that they keep in active service.

I thought OCFA retired that lately?

Killarney manitoba has a 1967 truck still in service as a first due tanker, albeit it was retrofitted from a pumper into a tanker a few years back but its still used so it think that counts. https://www.brandonsun.com/local/2022/04/07/fire-truck-leaving-impressive-legacy

The Why VFD in Pima County AZ isn't much of a fire department but they had in 2020 and likely still have in reserve a 1960s pumper pretty similar to the one pictured. The Baker NV VFD also has some pretty darn ancient trucks that work well for the less than one call a year they get. (Baker VFD pictured) I think for mod purposes it would make sense to have that be a mutual aid unit. Both the Why VFD and another department I knew in rural MO were departments in name only and most of the serious stuff in their districts was dealt with by a "mutual aid" department that was essentially the primary department in the closest real town. They'd likely send that ancient pumper out on an "all hands" kind of call. In a lot of rural areas the next mutual aid department could be an hour away (plus spin up time) so an old truck kept around back could still see service once in a blue moon.

The oldest thing my local volunteer department had in service up until a few years ago was a 1950 military surplus dodge brush truck, it was in service with the department up until 2020. I could see alot of volunteer companies keeping trucks that old and small around for brush fires.

Awesome development progress, excited to see the future of this mod.

Is interior firefighting of non-openhouses still planned?

Are we allowed to ask how progress is going?

No, you get downvoted into oblivion if you do anything other than look at the occasional screenshot. I have been following this thread on and off for years. Don't hold your breath.
