* Multilanguage (german / english)
You can download the mod here
Okay, let's go through this step by step:
1. Download the setup.
2. Run the setup, you do NOT need to install this in your Emergency / 911 game folder, just let it install where it wants to.
3. Once that's done, run the "ERS starten" program. You find this either on your desktop, start menu or under C:/program files/ERS Berlin. A prompt will open, where you can select either ERS Berlin, or regular Emergency 4. It will tell you that the mod hasn't been downloaded yet, and ask you if you want to download it.
4. Wait for the download to finish.
5a. If you're running EM4, you can now click "Start Game" in the same prompt used to download it.
5b: If you're using 911: FR, it seems that this won't work. Start the game the normal way, then go to "Mods" and activate it like any other mod.
2D & Map:
General tips and tricks:
- Vehicles can be towed by the police. Just select a police officer and click on the vehicle.
- You can dispatch units either with the button or by clicking on a free area anywhere on the map with the left mouse button.
- The "shift" key changes the priority of some commands. For example it helps you picking up the valve and entering the DLK.
- You can also transport uninjured people in the RTW.
- If you don`t manage it to finish an event look for objects or persons on the map that have to be transported.
- Rediricting the traffic works best on streets with multiple lanes in each direction. The end of the redirection should be near the orignal path of the cars redirected. Othewise they will delete themselves.
- The stations Tiergarten and Mitte (BF, FF) arrive at first on the scene in most areas of the map.
- In ERS Berlin you have only a limited amount of water and air. Keep that in mind!
- When a homicide occurs it is really important to secure evidence. Especially weapons!
- When confronted with a hazmat situation try first to find the source of contamination and seal it.
- The doctors car automatically escorts the ambulance to the nearest hospital. Just enter the RTW with the doctor and then send both units home with the "Back to Base" button.
- Animals can be transported in the KLEF. Firemen can pick up dead animals.
- In the mod directory XML/bfreeplay.xml you can find a file where you can change the frequency of events, the ingame time and the weather.
