B.E.L. -  Better Emergency Lighting

 

B.E.L. is a mod that aims to do away with that boring, dull vanilla police flash pattern. B.E.L. (Better Emergency Lighting) includes, a new realistic flash pattern, increased light reflection distance, and options for all red, and all blue lighting with coronas.

After a month or 2 of work, B.E.L. is finally ready for an initial release. It feels really good to finally release it, though, I haven't actually played LSPDFR in days, because I have just been non stop working on B.E.L, a maximum of 3-4 hours a day on weekdays (I didn't work on it on the weekends), but anyways, I'm gonna go through the whole shebang that I usually go through every time I release a new mod. When I thought to make this mod I was thinking, why don't I just make something like my other mods, except it's non vehicle specific. So I did. It started out with a simple 2 flashes on 1 set of lights, then another 2 flashes on another set of lights. Now, thanks to @GravelRoadCop and @POLICESCO, I used some of their sequencer values and it makes the lights look much better, and realistic. Also I'd like to thank @Captain14 for creating a carcols research thread, without that, this mod wouldn't be possible.

Features of this mod include

  • Better light patterns for police vehicles
  • Extended light reflection distances
  • Options for all red, all blue, or just simple red and blue lights w/ coronas

 

This mod comes with 4 coronas sizes, large, normal, small, and no coronas. Please view the demos for each siren below.

DO NOT APPLY THIS MOD TO VEHICLES WITH ROTARY LIGHTS! THE LIGHTS WILL GO SUPER FAST AND BE UGLY!

 

THANKS TO

@GravelRoadCop @flwpheonix @POLICESCO for letting me use their sequencer values!

I meant to make my last comment a review, sorry!

Anyway; the sequences look great. With the cracked out BPM, it's like a well choreographed ballet.

But that's where the issue is. This can't be used with taillight wig-wags, or rotary lights.

I don't believe I've seen any graphics mods released by you, straitdill. Therefore keep up the great work, because this is a very decent first!

It works on every vehicle and looks fantastic. It would be even better to have the 3 options as well as wig wags in one file, otherwise this is definitely the best visual mod by far. Will be using this on all my vehicles.

Just fucking download it....

On a more serious note: Finally a modification that works across almost every damn vehicle mod out there, and gives them more realistic lights! Perfect!

Spent like 10 minutes staring at the lights mindlessly driving code 3. If you haven't downloaded this already, hooooly shit you're missing out.

 

p.s. if you can create a carcols where specific siren settings use red and blues, while others use all-blues (i.e. "sirensettings 1" uses red-blues while "sirensettings 14" uses all-blues), that would be great <3

You are doing yourself a disservice if you don't download this. Highly recommended.

This carcols mod is very nice and detailed. Patterns are cool and fast. It is excellent for us users that don't have access to custom carcols or have the knowledge to customize it. This is definitely great for people to use until ELS V is released. I've tried out all of the custom coronas and enjoy them pretty much. Though with some users vehicles you might experience some dim lighting for the vehicles with lower coronas. I have personally had to put the coronas to the highest version to meet my custom visualsettings.dat file. Overall though, this is a very cool mod. Nice work! :)

WELL DONE! I used your <id value="1"> for Captain14's Marked/Unmarked 2015 Tahoes and the Hurk's 2016 FPIU, and worked fine. Didn't expect one universal siren to be possible. Saves me a lot of time.

You should get another star for making easy to copy&paste your siren into a custom carols.ymt.

Nice pattern, nice setup. The only thing that turns me off is that the tailights and headlights are not wig-wagging anymore.

Apart from that, A1 mod.

Such an amazing modification to add in your game! I was focusing way more on the lights than focusing on the suspect during a pursuit. 

Even though some sirensettings aren't compatible with this mod yet, its still deserves 5 stars! :thumbsup:

Why wait for ELS, when we have this?! :biggrin:

Best lighting mod ever. I love playing LSPDFR now! When I release my first episode for LSPDFR I will make sure to promote this mod. IT'S AMAZING I don't know how else to describe it.
