Custom Backup 3.3

   (23 reviews)

9 Screenshots

After a month of development, Custom Backup is finally here!

Custom backup gives you a new level of control in LSPDFR. The key feature of this mod is regionally customized backup, allowing you to set a different response for any area on the map. For any named area of the game (like "Rockford Hills", "Los Santos International Airport", "Sandy Shores", etc.) you can completely customize every level of response just like the built-in backup.xml. The syntax of the CustomBackup.xml file is very similar to the built-in backup.xml, but has numerous additions to increase your control over the game: 

  • Set a chance for anything! Peds, vehicles, and vehiclesets now all take a chance attribute which controls how likely they are to be chosen. (The built-in backup.xml only lets you set a chance on peds.)
  • Configure vehicle extras, liveries, and colors! You can now set any color you want for any response vehicle, opening up a whole new level of customization for unmarked units. Vehicle extra configuration also works reliably, whereas it seems to have some issues in the built-in backup.xml. 
  • Cop weapon selection! Set a list of weapons to give your backup units, set the probability for each weapon, and decide whether you want them to pick one at random or always get the most powerful one. 
  • Set spawn distance range for each vehicle entry! Every vehicle entry can have a minimum and maximum spawn distance set. This allows for additional realism by making certain units spawn closer or further away. NOOSE SWAT probably isn't just hanging out around the corner, so make them drive in from a mile away. On top of Mt. Chiliad your backup will probably be coming from a long distance, but in Downtown there's probably local patrol units very near by. Your imagination is the limit for leveraging these settings. 
  • Code 2 response with lights! Let's be honest, how often do cops really respond "code 2" with no lights? You can now configure your Code 2 units to respond with lights (but no siren), or to respond with their lights off but turn them on once they arrive and park on scene. YouTube video demo.
  • Integration with Better EMS: Download and install Better EMS, and you can call for an advanced EMS response through the Custom Backup menu. 
  • Integration with Police Smart Radio: Call for backup from your radio! Call Code 2 or Code 3 local backup, or Pursuit and Air Support units.

 

Installation instructions are included in the download. Basic installation is pretty easy; just make sure to choose a CustomBackup.xml file to use and put it in place. Advanced usage of the CustomBackup.xml file is explained in great detail in the documentation PDF. 

INSTRUCTIONS TO OVERRIDE DEFAULT LSPDFR BACKUP MENU:

To completely disable the built-in LSPDFR backup menu and use the custom menu instead, follow these instructions.

  • Edit CustomBackupLocations.ini. Set these settings:
    • CustomBackupMenuKey=B
    • CustomBackupModifier=None
    • OverrideLSPDFRBackup=false
  • Go to the GTA V settings menu 
  • Under Keybindings, go to GTA Online section
  • Change "Look At" from B to something you don't use, like the numpad period

Thank you to @vladimir850 for figuring this out!

i'm getting lower fps with the newer version. the previous version made the game run smooth. Idk why, rage log doesn't show much

 

Could it be that a certain type of combination of plugins is causing this? I'm using some older ones like law callouts

I haven't experienced any reduction FPS while using Custom Backup.

Changing the date on your PC fixes it, but seriously.  Why would you ruin our games like this.

If anybody truly finds the new date-related features intolerable, changing your date temporarily will fix the issue. You can also try temporarily not using the mod for a day, or can try downloading and installing a sense of humor to your system. Rest assured that all date-related features are automatically deactivated at the appropriate time.

I wouldnt mind it if the woman actual helped out.  When I call for backup, they spawn in, and just sit there

They do exactly what the police normally do. If you get in a shootout, they'll shoot the suspect. If you get in a pursuit, they'll join the chase (unless you have automatic pursuit joining disabled). I haven't changed their behavior at all.

Ok ... after requesting backup last night and having a naked woman show up on a go-cart, I figured something was tragically wrong or it was an April Fools joke. Seriously - who's going to complain about that?

 

The zombies pretending to be medics was a bit outside the scope, however.

@PNWParksFan

I want to thank you for your work and tell you that I really like it.

The following happens to me:
- When requesting at a traffic stop, backup code 3 if it is in town there is no problem, they approach and point their weapons at the suspect who is inside the vehicle. But outside the city come the sheriff's offices, they do nothing, they just stand and sometimes move a little, but nothing else. Obviously it's a bug. Does it happen to anyone else?

Thank you and greetings.

Hi guys, what areas should I use for setting highway patrol addon cars for just highways

That would need support to get road names for player or suspects, which is not currently supported. Just use the StatePatrol backup choice for now.

Ya know, I don't think I've ever seen them do anything but stand around until I do a gunpoint arrest no matter where I am.
