Well, ladies and gentlemen, the poll said 80 (!) percent of you want another episode of Notruf 110! And nobody wanted to take over the hosting, understandably. Now I will even add BeamNG for the storytelling, since Automation photoscenes are limited and I dont want to show the same things over and over.
The private Hetvesian TV station FFF (Film, Funk und Fernsehen) created the show “NOTRUF 110 - EINSATZ FÜR DIE AUTOBAHNPOLIZEI” in 1993, portraying the dangerous duties of the young highway cop Frank Batimus and his team. After six seasons, the show is as popular as ever, with a market share of 38 percent at thursday´s prime time!
Please read the thread of the first CSCS to get an impression what this relatively new challenge is about. There is not only all season 3 episodes performed, but also an interlude showing you the last episode of season 6 to give you a better impression how this challenge works and how the characters are. Nevertheless I will provide you a description.
Kriminalhauptkommissar Frank Batimus
Frank, a 34 year old Berlau native, is the protagonist of the show, a still relatively young cop with a genius mind. While he looks very serious, never seen in duty without suit and tie, his guilty pleasure is hard techno music, dancing all night through Berlau. Of course with a suit, too. He is still mourning his first partner, Rainer Sordel, which he could not save, and escapes into parties when not on duty. He reluctantly accepted Harald Walkowski as his new partner, but Harry resigned. He prefers unsuspicious cars, but they need to have a certain sportiness and clean, sharp styling. He is a skilled driver, although he rarely uses brute force, instead, he prefers solving the case the smart way. Nevertheless, his crash statistic is as stunning as that of his successful arrests.
Kriminalkommissarin Sarah Batimus
Sarah, 26, just married her colleague Frank after a long time of on-off-relationships. Her BPD disease as well as PTSD don´t make her life easy. She is despite this a lively person always up to the task and never surrendering. Her dad was a well-decorated officer killed in action, and she would never want something else than being a cop just to make him look at her from above with pride. Left with an alcoholic and unemployed mother at age 13, her life was not always straight. She prefers cars with a certain personality, she would never use a vehicle that just blends in anywhere. By the way, she has the worst medical reports of all the officers, proving that she takes any risk to do the job and that she is way more courageous than most men in the job.
Kriminalkommissar Lars Krüger
Lars, a 28 year old from is a shy computer nerd, and was picked by Bernd Schneider as Frank´s new partner. He worked as forensic data scientist in Ungenstadt before hired by Schneider. After two hardboiled tough detectives, Rainer Sordel and Harald Walkowski, a more sensible and calmer partner should stop Batimus from causing mayhems, explosions and crashes. Krüger has no special preference on cars. It´s a mean of transport for him.
Kriminaloberrat Bernd Schneider
Bernd Schneider, aged 54, a former military officer, was promoted from the uniformed police force to this desk job, but refuses to take off his uniform he wears with pride - a habit from his military times. He stands behind his team and seems very competent at his job, but he does not step back from arguments and puts some pressure on the team when things get rough, however, he would never leave behind anybody, but his love for buerocracy and processes almost cost him the trust of his team in the last episode of season 6.
He is rule-obedient and does not let slide a lot, but will despite this always keep his hand over the department when they cause trouble, since he trusts them a 100 %.
He prefers a prestigious and fast car, but in police livery. He will use it in a pursuit when his team needs his help, and unlike his predecessor, he hates being stuck at the desk, so it will be used to pursuit baddies from time to time. Bernd Schneider is well known and feared by criminals, since if he enters a chase, his eyes are reported to glow red and having an evil grin on the face.
Polizeihauptmeister Uwe Holtmann and Polizeiobermeister Udo Kaportke
Uwe Holtmann and Udo Kaportke (Frank mixes up the names on purpose to annoy them) are the most prominent uniformed officers in the show. They are neither smart nor helpful, but try their best to ensure that Batimus and Krüger have a backup.
Look up CSCS1 - the preferences do not have changed that much. Since this is mainly about fitting the characters visually, the engineering is not unimportant but secondary.
This is a challenge with a strong focus on design. Your cars need to represent the characters!!!
Design and fitting the character
Value for money - the cars need to be credible as police cars. However, Kriminalrat Schneider can have something more expensive than a regular officer. Keep it sane.
Safety - After season 3 and some injured stunt people, they put that on the list. I wonder why.
Reliability - the cars are driven very hard in the show, and since they need to last a whole season, they should better be tough.
Performance figures and sportiness - For a chase, having a chain with pedals linked to the axle might be a disadvantage. Among the usual vehicles at the turn of the millenium, the cars should not be low-performers.
Comfort - The highway patrol spends a lot of time in the car - don´t make it a prison cell!
Drivability - Highway patrolmen and women are highly trained professionals - and so are the stunt drivers, but they don´t want something handling like a hot potato.
