warning geek post

The ambulance used in this video is CUB376Y, a Persevered 1981 Ford Transit/Hanlon ambulance. This is logged on a Persevered emergency vehicles website as being a Privately owned ex West Yorkshire vehicle. that is available for TV work. 

I hope this extra Information is of interest to you.

Maybe there's a hitch in the system that will link that mist system to the ones used o. The smiler

Don't want to sound harsh but what else is a ridiculous amount of mist meant to mean?

Wasn't it turned off due to the weather? The pipes were frozen in a similar way to a windscreen washer pipe freezing in cold weather

The mist pipes have always needed a lot of maintenance themselves - due to limescale buildup etc.

Can't help but think that a really misty oblivion doesn't half sound cool. I've only ever rode her with a slight cloud of mist. I bet looking down at the hole your about to plummet through and not seeing anything but a cloud of vapoured water. Well it's got to be cool. Even if I will admit that Oblivion makes me cake my underwear! Lmao

Glad to hear the mist is working. It's working fine on Nemesis Inferno at the moment too (so much so it's almost impossible to breathe for about 5 seconds). I'd imagine its like that, which is great!

Just a thought I had while playing The Smiler earlier.

In the game, the X-Cite, X-Sell shop signs were in yellow (don't know whether this is the case or not, was sure they were either silver or orange) and Fried Chicken Co. looked similar to the station building, with piping and the Smiler logos on the roof. I know it's probably too late for this to happen this season, but do you think these changes could come into play over the next few years as The Smiler really claims X-Sector?

Personally, I think Fried Chicken Co. looks great all Marmalised (will try to find a screenshot when I can)

No I don't I like the way the smiler is taking over but they do not want to over do it, tbh they are lucky it doesn't already look a bit...tacky around X-Sector as it could of gone two ways 1-being tacky or 2-how it comes across now

YES! same with blivvy! I've never actually seen oblivion with so much mist! Couldn't see down into the tunnel at all and I couldnt breath the whole way though lol. The mist went down all through the tunnel and out the other end and then the whoosh of the car brought more out lol...had to re ride just for that!

So if we are saying that it was off for the giggled to potentially be put in then that means that is wired up? Inside station and other places!!

IF it had been turned off purposely to re route it for the giggler or innoculator (may spray water) then yes, possibly. It would make sense and would also be an a good sign that things are moving behind the scenes on the site in regards to wiring things.

Just remember that there are other reasons as to why the mist could have been switched off which have been stated above :)
