ELS V - Why I Won't Use It For A Couple Weeks

Recommended Posts

As of ELS V releasing, there is only 1 car out that works with it. It is very boring to use the same car so this is why I will not be using ELS for a couple weeks. My plan is to wait until more cars for ELS V are released and more skins. Personally I need to have different cars with the same department skins or It just feels off.

Yeah I know i could do that for the whole 8 slots, but personally it still comes down the same car in every slot.

Wait? You want the same car in every slot?

well if i have 1 ELS car, it would only make sense to have it in the other car slots. Also, do you know if the AI police are still able to turn on their lights and if so does ELS work on them? Just a random thought i came up with when i was replying :)

Yes. I have BxBugs's ELS CVPI in the ''police'' slot, and AI activates ELS. And i have non-els cars in the other slots and the lights works as normal.

Lol, I didn't even think that i could use it in only 1 slot. I'm stupid :tongue: Thanks for the answer!

I'll personally not use it because 1/ I've a bad memory of ELS crashing my game every fifteen minutes on GTA IV, and 2/ because vanilla lights are just as good without all the trouble of having to have ELS-enabled cars with the configs coming with them.

The biggest reason why I want ELS is because of the steady glow option available for the corners of the lightbar (for cruising around with lights not activated).  The rest is cool and an added bonus.

You know there is an option in the config to have a hybrid vehicle? For instance, a directional bar, and the rest of the car using carcols? Hoping someone does something like this!

ELS V is by far superior to ELS IV. It has been worked on for over a year. The system has been worked on and tested thoroughly. It is very stable, and while you may see some performance decrease I can bet it will never be as bad as IV.

On the contrary, I believe ELS V cars will be flooding the LCPDFR site in the next few days and weeks, and even months. I know DEV's such as my self have been just dying to get their paws on ELS V. The functionality and just overall awesomeness will spark the creativity of many DEVS out there. Especially because most of the newer DEVs that have come from V modding have never been able to mod for ELS they will be surprised at how much they can do. I'd say get ready for some really awesome stuff!

I agree and I might add Buggs has the same old recycled  2011 FCV,It is almost 2017.Maybe he could do something from say 2016.ya think.

yea, I hope. In my local department they got rid of all their crown vics so I only see FPIS, FPIU, and Tahoe PPV's. I hope he does something such as a FPIU, Tahoe, or FPIS.

I never see the OLD FCV's  in service anywhere. I live in a major metropolitan area. Don't see any when I travel.

It is ideal to me to have the same vehicles in multiple spots, I am a fan of uniformity. If I put a different vehicle it will likely be a couple of unmarked units with variations of black or gray color. Typically I tend to stay with one manufacturer as well. So for ford i would have a mixture of ford unmarked cvpi, or unmarked fipu's with the marked cvpis. To each their own though. :)

To me I think there is enough visual enhancement mods (carcol edits for light patterns and visual data edits for brightness etc). to make a good fleet go along with the one ELS car no problem.

The only thing I am waiting on now is albo to update his plugins, vanilla lspdfr is hard to play now after being spoiled by those sweet enhancements.

You're not the only one who won't use it - for a while.  My plan is to just use what I have until I see more vehicle modelers update their current vehicles (if possible) to be compatible with ELS V.

I stopped playing GTA IV because of this, but it's pretty much FUD when it comes to GTA V.

 

GTA V ELS (and GTA V + Scripthook/ragehook mods in general) are extremely stable and are more likely to crash themselves and stop working than to crash the engine.

 

That's not to say there aren't a few bad apples out there or that ELS will never segfault your game but I would at least suggest to not promote the idea that ELS in GTA V is or might be unstable just because of anecdotes from a completely different game.

 

For what it's worth, I've probably played longer with ELS on GTA V already than my longest run in months of GTA IV.

I didn't say ELS V was unstable, nor am I promoting this idea, I'm just saying that I've had my share of annoyance with ELS IV so I won't bother much about it, especially since vanilla lighting customization has become incredibly good. And that is without counting the fact that there are too few ELS enabled vehicles for me to enjoy playing with this mod, I like my fleets to be homogenous (same lightbars, same patterns, same liveries), right now I can't do that so I'll stick to vanilla :)

The fact that you won't try ELS V partly because ELS IV was unstable is exactly what I'm replying to. I wouldn't want others to read your post and be scared away from trying ELS because of inaccurate bias that stems from the older mod. The rest of your reasons are fine even though in a few days it will be irrelevant due to how many vehicles will come out.

You're making me say what I didn't say, but hey, whatever floats your boat, people are free to have their opinions about things ;)

You literally wrote that part of the reason you won't try ELS V is because ELS IV was crashy, I didn't invent anything. Sorry if you got flustered by my response somehow or if there's a language barrier I'm not aware of.

I said that I won't use ELS V as of now because I had trouble with ELS IV (amongst other reasons I explained before). I didn't say ELS V was unstable, I didn't say ELS V was making people's games crash, I didn't say ELS V was crap, anywhere. I'm just doing that based on my personal opinion. As far as I know, this topic is "Why I won't use ELS for a couple of weeks", not "Why ELS V is good and anyone saying the contrary is wrong". I replied to the thread with my personal experience and opinion from previous iterations of ELS, that's all. So don't claim that I could make people wary of ELS V or anything, because it isn't true. You like ELS V and use it and advice people to do the same, good for you, I personally don't use it, but I don't tell people to do the same. ;)
