About This File

Just in time for Halloween


Newest version with Rotating Lightbar and LED Board added Ecto 1A: Ghostbuesters 2, check it out video in update section!!! ADD ON OPTION



Who you gonna call!!!



added Ghostbuster Textures for s_m_m_pilot_02 in download section <below<



This Vehicle is by Madgaz ecto-1 mod for GTAV and is still in beta i am working on the new Ecto1 from 2016 movie but decided to throw light on this one for Halloween enjoy. 





Some Easy Fixes::

if you dont like sideruners, turn off warning lights in ELS settings or use ELS UI menu. EXTRA 5 AND 6.


Light color change the texture for soundoff intersector to all whit. Will upload new light textures when i can been busy with work and school.(grill lights)


For LED Board change secondary pattern in ELS UI menu to suite your needs. LED is tied to extra 9 and 7. Maybe I'll add Extra 8 Slot one day. 


Light Patterns: not realistic, so change the pattern in ELS UI menu. CTRL + P to open me u. Wake up ppl thats the purpose of ELS.



i just did the lights dont kill the messenger any other bugs i cant fix.

Download new Version Major FIxes on Textures !!!

Major Updates and LED Board, Ghostbusters Were Back!!!


Ghostbuster Textures for s_m_m_pilot_02

using open iv navigate to location for your s_m_m_pilot_02.ytd in edit add or replace the textures and click save, you can view if it took by opening s_m_m_pilot_02.ydd

and selection check all to see all options for this character. no gun or badge works best since your not a cop as a ghost-buster. Re-texture by Major Payne. you can use the other name textures in Photoshop or paint to change or add different names you can pull them from the gb names.




common path Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64e.rpf\models\cdimages\componentpeds_s_m_m.rpf\s_m_m_pilot_02.ytd, id recommend install to your mod folder


Version 2.2 with  MSP Gumball LED beacon Attempts to fix alot of the texture issues from the original creator, alot of things are connected and should not be. keep an lookout for updates, materials are set wrong. im surprised this car worked. 


Ecto 1A: Ghostbuesters 2 with toronto roatating LED Lightbar

Uploaded Ecto 1A this is a version with two blue rotating light-bars, and LED board with more movie like pattern, however u can still change the pattern in ELS Menu, please use included VCF, for LED Board this is till stied to TA so adjust your pattern as you see fit i have not programmed a default pattern it will scan for you or you can change it. 

side runners are still in 5 and 6 so you can turn off your warning lights if you dont like side runners 


herea a video of new Ecto 1A. Just two light bars. no i have not yet figured out how to get the red beacon to rotate. instead of rotating halogens we have rotating LED lightbar

I really hope you plan on updating this, as the light setup is horribly inaccurate to the movie. The LED gumball light and the side runners do not fit the car at all, the grille strobes are supposed to be white, and only the Ecto-1A from Ghostbusters 2 has a traffic advisor. I get that you wanted to make something fun for Halloween, but as a huge ghostbusters fan, I'd love an Ecto-1 mod that had accurate working lights. Like you said, you didn't make the car and only added the lights, but I doubt the original author is ever going to do it. 

Response from the author:

In the new update it will look like the ecto-1 from the second movie i maybe found a lightbar that will work. I also added the LED message board ghostbusters were back!!


Light setup is my fault i know on they original car blue spotlights light up at the same time. But i dislime els pattern only in one slot. You can change the pattern so it lights up just like the movie using ELS Menu.

i like what you have done so far the only thing i would change is on the big blue beacon turn from a led to a rotator if you can and the strobes in the grill make them white instead of red

here are some reference photos for you but other than that it looks  awesome



Response from the author:

I Don't know how to setup roatating lights, or else i would have kept the lightbar on it and mad it rotate. Hopefully in the future i can learn more and make those changes

1. material/uv map issues with missing/unapplied textures can be seen around 0:36 in the video you put on the page

2. no credit except for madgaz for original model, who originally modelled it for what game or from which 3d website, etc

3. no credit to evi for siderunners

4. lots of imperfections


final verdict:

good try and nice idea but it needs much more work

Response from the author:

please read all i did was the lights i didn't make the car author is credited
