PALETO BAY POLICE DEPARTMENT PACK 1.0
Based on The Lenox Police Department in Berkshire County, Massachusetts
About a half-year ago, I began delving into the depths of GTA V vehicle development. While the process was difficult at first, the help of dozens of talented developers in the field allowed me to grow quickly. When I began this trek, my intent was to create a single, massive Massachusetts Megapack, featuring over 40 vehicles. While that pack is still in progress, I decided it would be wise for me to release a pack before going any further, introducing myself to the community and demonstrating my work.
My commitment remains simple: Provide the community with the highest quality vehicles I possibly can, rendered to near 100% accuracy to their real life counterparts. This pack's release has gone through months of laborious testing, and the construction would not have been possible without those listed in the credits of this release.
Please read the credits for a full outline of not only the parts I used, but the people that helped me get here.
Lenox is a town in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, United States. Set in Western Massachusetts, it is part of the Pittsfield Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 5,025 at the 2010 census. Lenox is the site of Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The Lenox Police Department is a relatively small Police Agency responsible for overall law enforcement duties in the township of Lenox. Since the Berkshire County Sheriff does not have a patrol division (no sheriff departments in Massachusetts have a patrol division), they interface directly with the Massachusetts State Police for all law enforcement matters in and around their jurisdiction.
ELS & Non-ELS Hybrid
It is true that this pack utilizes ELS and Non-ELS to create magnificent and beautiful lighting effects in the environment, as well as to enable more variety with the flash patterns. By default, the Non-ELS lights are set to activate on Light-Stage 2, but this can be modified in the VCFs if you wish. Modifying the metas or names of these vehicles can cause the non-ELS lights to malfunction, leaving most of the lights either dysfunctional or totally inoperable.
THIS PACK INCLUDES:
LPD1: 2014 FPIU with Whelen Liberty I "Opticom".
LPD2: 2016 FPIU with Whelen Liberty II.
LDP3: 2014 FPIS with Whelen Liberty I "Opticom".
LPD4: 2014 FPIU with Whelen Inner Edge XLP (Slicktop marked).
LPD5: 2014 Dodge Charger with Whelen Liberty I "Opticom".
LPD6: 2016 FPIU with Whelen Liberty II "Opticom".
- Tidying up the VCF files.
- Collision Optimization
- Small texture modifications.
- The 2014 Charger's Takedowns face the reverse direction. Still now, I am unaware of a fix for this issue, but will continue to look for one.
I am still learning, and I am by no means perfect. I welcome all feedback, bug reports, and issues with the files. Please understand that while I will attempt to help anyone that has difficulties installing these vehicles, I cannot control your PC, and I cannot always promise a fix. I offer no support to those who attempt to modify the files.
Q: How do I activate the takedowns and the spotlights?
A: Spotlights are tied to the highbeams, takedowns are tied to ELS.
Q: Can these be used as REPLACEMENTS instead of ADDONS?
A: Yes, but please read the readme carefully for instructions.
Q: Can you modify this pack to include red and blue lighting?
A: Under no circumstances will I be including a red/blue option for this pack.
Q: What permissions do I have for this pack?
A: You can use it for single-player until your heart is content, but under no circumstances can you use this pack for FiveM.
Q: May I have access to the templates to change the liveries?
A: No. I will not be providing templates with this download. I know this may be a controversial decision, but I believe strongly that these vehicles were made to represent the department they are build after. Modifying the textures would not only do away with the work of DJCave, but also take away from the accuracy of this pack. If you desperately need to change my vehicle's textures, most of the templates are available on this site elsewhere.

SoCalThero & Dewey for their patience with instructing me on my first steps in GTA V modeling so many months ago. Without them, I wouldn't have completed my first car.
GeorgieMoon, Carper, Kane104, EVI, Matt-I-P, OfficerFive0, and ISPfan12 for their advanced knowledge and teachings. They are a font of knowledge unlike anything the GTA V community has seen, and we're better for it.
OfficerFive0, again, for his immense generosity with the sheer amount of parts given to me to use.
Turtle, for constructing the community within which I learned so much, surrounded by so many talented developers.
'Commissioned' denotes that I asked a developer to make a part that previously didn't exist in exchange for real money. Some of these parts are publicly available and can be released if asked for.
'Purchased for use' denotes a real money exchange between myself and other developer for a preexisting part.
'used with permission' denotes a private part that was shared with me by the developer with permission to use on a locked model.
