Ok so far when ever I start a killing spree or a huge fire ambulances never spawn neither do firetruck. Do I have to do a mission or something for them to spawn?

Ambulances, firetrucks won't spawn in the rural areas and desert. They should, however, spawn in the other areas normally.

I know I'm not in the desert, it doesn't spawn anywhere and I'm in los santos

Do you mean spawn as in randomly at locations or when you kill a pedestrian? (I think they'll only spawn when you kill a ped)

I meant spawn when I kill pedestrians and the ambulances don't come.

They spawn at fire stations and hospitals, but I've never seen one anywhere else

I think that when they squeezed the game down to Mobile size some things had to go. Free spawning of emergency vehicles, like the Firefighters/ambulance, was one of them.

This topic is about ios not pc version. Everyone who has played gta SA on pc or ps2 knows that firetrucks and ambulances spawn in cities not in deserts and small towns. I haven't heard about any vehicle except tractor and harvestor to spawn in farms. First read the topic title carefully then answer.

In gta III they always spawn because gta 3 only consumes 480 mb of your mobile device
So rockstar had a chance to save emergency vehicles in III

I have had rare emergency responses from the fire department and local hospital is LS. These images mostly capture the fire truck, but this is proof that it does happen on iOS (iPad).

I always load the game every time I got wasted or busted because I like good stats but for some reason when I died and just kept playing the fire truck and ambulance started working, that's when I took the screenshots above... so I loaded up again and of course it doesn't work! :(

One time an ambulance appeared in the distance but it disappeared after half a second. I've seen a fire truck spawn just once, in the Embarcadero when I was shooting grenades from the ferry building roof. So apparently they do have code to spawn on mobile but a glitch makes them despawn.

Yeah, I was trying to get it to work by starting a fire in Grove St and the fire truck would always spawn down the road and then disappear...

EDIT << Merged same topic >>


Hey guys, I've been playing GTA San Andreas on android and I noticed that emergency vehicles like ambulance and firetrucks do not spawn like in pc. Is there any way to fix this problem?

just the way rockstar designed it, lack of performance on mobile devices most likely, get over it or carry windows laptop with you.

I can't afford a laptop. Anyway I found a video about high draw distance mod. Will this help? I'm desperate.

If you still did not understand: firetruck and ambulance DO NOT spawn in traffic for android and ios version of gta san andreas, it's unclear as of why its like that.

modding afaik wont fix that.

Ambulances and Firetrucks do spawn on Android. I suspect it's the same for iOS but I can't confirm it, or try the cleo script I wrote to force them to spawn. I used this script in the dessert where I could see far ahead without obstructions. The emergency response vehicles spawn reliably far ahead of CJ when the script was executed, and then they disappeared in about 1 second. Nothing I tried in-game would allow me to keep them on screen longer, but I'm more likely to believe the occasional report from players that have seen them.

Where's the script?

This is very old news. Yes, your correct. On few occasions while playing SA on my SG6 and my SG8 the paramedics and Firefighers do spawn it's just that rarely they have the limits to spawn due to game limitations for SA to run at least mid-performance on mobile devices.

-The same thing happened with the VC mobile port. R* had to scrap out the pararmedic and Firefighters due to limitations on mobile.

What @ACM-Jan said in a similar way, R* and Wardrum studios had to go under some changes to get SA to run on at least mid-performance as i mentioned. It seems like cutting out a few small details would make the game run at least on low-to medium settings.

-This issue is also the reason why aircraft in the sky don't spawn as well. If you played SA for years on consoles or PC you'd noticed every few times you would hear and witness a plane flying in the sky. That isn't the case with mobile ports of SA. They almost never spawn at all. On a few times you look up the sky, you can see a plane getting close to CJ. But as soon it comes close, it disappears in a second. So it's like planes weren't meant to spawn in the sky on the mobile ports.


So far the only gta's on mobile that feature Abulance and Firefighters spawning every single time are GTAIII and GTALCS. Those mobile gta's have every detail due the the fact that the map was way smaller and there wasn't any problem adding in extra detail regarding Abulances and Fire trucks spawning.

It sucks till this day because everytime you kill peds or start fires there isn't any emergency vehicles spawning besides police cars with officers inside them. It's a loss of small details but i didn't really care at first. Didn't really ruin gameplay that much.

I tried the mod I just showed you and it works. The only problem is the author of the mod have put a lot of bloat features on it and cranked the draw distance too high. Is it possible to remake this mod with some little adjustments? Here's my short gameplay:

This has always bothered me tbh. I had so much fun shooting down airplanes each time they randomly passed. It was so fun :p I'm mentioning it because i also knew that the Abulance and Fire Fighters never spawned on the mobile port of SA. I'm not sure what the f*ck wardrum did to f*ck this up. Because if i'm correct they also worked on VC's mobile port to and they disabled the emergency vehicles besides the police one. I agree with you on the part that i'm 100% sure R* and Wardrum struggled to actually port and get SA working due to the massive size of the map. But i never understood what the hell was the deal with VC's mobile port?? VC's map is freaking small as f*ck compared to SA.

Not only that but again correct me if i'm wrong but wasn't III's map bigger than VC's? I never understood these cuts other than SA's possible excuses. Lucid got everything right in thier port on LCS. And tbh that mod above few post looks really bland. Wouldn't really stand SA looking like that.

I mean don't mean to be arguing with R* or wardrum or anything, but if i could take my Xbox original everywhere i wouldn't really be complaining :p

 R* had to scrap out the pararmedic and Firefighters due to limitations on mobile.

 

This sounds like speculation to me. Someone posted somewhere what they thought was a logical answer and everyone keeps repeating it. Can you point to an official R*/Wardrum report with a similar statement?

 

Observations suggest the feature was not cut. It's just broken. Lot's of things are broken in the mobile version. Wardrum didn't put much thought into this port and didn't bother to fix any issues. I doubt anyone made any decision regarding the emergency response vehicles beyond refusing to fix the issue when it was reported. 

 

EMT Spawn Scripts for CleoA are included in the spoiler.
