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

  • 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 mean what BEL option do you have? Red/blue small, all red large, etc.

In you carvariations police4's sirensetting has to be 1.

With Bxbugs' CVPI, change your sirensettings in your carvariations to 1. With the charger, it depends which one of his you are using. To my knowledge, his 1.7RX charger is the only one that is incompatible with this mod, so just change your charger's sirensettings in your carvariations file to 1. I don't think Captain14's pack would work with this, so don't worry about those vehicles.

Awesome. All the CVPIs now have your pattern....thank you kind sir!

Nope, just change the textures of the lights on his CVPI and use the all red coronas option with B.E.L.

Can you PM me the edited textures for the lights please?

If the rotating halogens are super fast it isn't per say a issue. The mx7000 light bars if you ever seen one had versions where it was the rotator shield had 3 sides either strobe, led, multi led, halogen in center and the outer mirror would rotate really fast. One example would be el paso texas sheriff/pd, or Miami Dade in past. Trust me if you seen it you'd say it is exactly that. Here is a older version with the single mirror lense rotating but the tri mirror lense ones appear even faster if you ever see it.

@straitdill

It's pretty good. It's basically slower sequences and a bpm on cocaine. With this, taillight wig-wags no longer work.

This is definitely a step in the right direction! If this is your first time delving into carcols, you've made a great start.

PM me if you ever wish to collaborate our work.

Does this have a effect on performance??

I haven't noticed a significant performance drop.

How do you use this with BxBug's vehicles? They have their own custom carcol, and they are .meta not .ymt.

In the carvariations.meta, change the sirensettings to 1.

Probably just a couple FPS.

I'll have to try it out when I get home. I'm running on a really low end PC and pushing my system to the Max LoL. Running at highest 30 min 23.

Well, why does the ambulance has no reflections anymore?

I was in such a rush to get BEL out I forgot to add it.

There's just one working light... I'll take a video

Yeah, and if you can link me the car, so I can investigate the problem, that'd be great.
