HD Fire Hydrant Chiefs Edition

A new advanced fire hydrant version is currently in development: the HD Fire Hydrant Chiefs Edition.
The Chiefs Edition (CE) is a standalone version that will be sold separately. No price tag has been set yet.
It contains many new features based on submitted suggestions and will offer a greater level of detail.
The standard HD Hydrant that is part of the HD Fire System Box will remain unchanged and free.

It will be compatible with a Hydrant Tools Bag.
The bag will contain the Hydrant Tool, two Gate Valves, the Out-Of-Service Marker and the Sprinkler Cap.
On the Legacy Pumper the bag will replace the cribbing blocks in the Driver side front compartment.
The bag can be carried, placed next to the Hydrant and then opened to select the tools you need.
For the other HD Vehicles it is not clear yet on how the bag will be made available.

Features:
- all new Mesh construction
- high level of detail
- 2 Land Impact
- removable caps

Marine 1 Update

An update is in development for the HD Marine 1 Fire Boat. It is currently undergoing internal testing.
If you own the current version of Marine 1 and would like to help testing please contact Lares Carter.
The update will make the Supply Line connections on Marine 1 compatible with HDFS2.
As a bonus it will also include a couple of improvements from the Marine 2 Project.

Overview of changes:
- HDFS2 compatible supply connections with fixed flow rate of 1000 GPM
- adjusted surface normals for smooth transitions between the individual Mesh pieces of the hull and deck structures
- additional textures with more details for some parts that previously only had a single color
- updated spotlight model with more detail
- added Box Lightbar on top of bridge, similar to Titanium model
- working switches on the control panel for the captain
- added door and small cabin to the front of the bridge
- extinguishing fires with new optional raycast feature
- increased deckgun and aerial boom master stream ratings
- longer lasting foam injection
- docking improvements
- online manual

If you know about any issues with the current version of Marine 1 please report them here.
I will not be able to accept any new feature suggestions for this update as the priority is to add the HDFS2 compatibility.
The additional changes are a bonus as they were already developed and available.

The Marine 2 Project itself is still on hold to give priority to the Legacy Series Fire Trucks.
