AI Calls

Receive AI calls to fix/tow broken down vehicles:
  • Go to the Mechanic Office Mechanic office.png , enter the blue circle, follow the instructions and go on duty.
  • Get in your vehicle.
  • Wait for an automatic callout to occur, you must remain in your vehicle to be able to receive callouts.
  • Follow the GPS to the location marked on your map.
  • Approach the vehicle on foot, press E to inspect the vehicle.
  • What you need depends on the issue, see the table below.

  • The 'Jobs this session' counter only goes up for towed vehicles, this is fixed in a future update.
  • The callouts are clientside, only you will see your own callouts.
