So I don't know about you but firefighters in my game are just not doing their job smoothly 5 out 6 times I call them.
First issue is the fire itself which is always a small fire that gets automatically
put out by one of the sims before I get the chance to call the fire department but if I manage to call it then:
1. the firefighters will attempt to put out the fire but they won't be able to because of routing issues if it is in a small space.
2. the firefighters will arrive but will just stand in front of the house and do nothing for about an hour
3. or they just won't show up after calling them, which happened to me once so far. The sim called the fire department but had to go to work immidiately after that. So she left the lot, the firefighters never came and her garden burned down.
I don't have a picture from this one.
Are those bugs, is it a problem with the engine (the infamous simulation lag where sims stand there for hours and do nothing), or is this just how firefighters are designed?
