LSPDFR 0.3 - Backup Customization


Sam

This is the second part of our LSPDFR 0.3 preview series.  For more information about the background behind 0.3, check out the first installment in this series here: http://www.lcpdfr.com/forums/topic/55130-lspdfr-03-announcement-first-preview/

In spirit of keeping up to date with the most hotly requested features for future versions of LSPDFR, customization of responding police units simply had to be near the top of our list.

LSPDFR 0.3 introduces an all-new Backup XML file which lets you customize, in great detail, just what kind of cops and vehicles LSPDFR should dispatch for each of the seven in-built backup types. 

Be sure to read on for more information about this feature, and more, coming soon with LSPDFR 0.3.

Just one more thing...  As if completely configurable backup units and the new medics weren't enough, we also managed to make a few improvements to the way in which units arrive at backup requests.  This means you can have scenes that look almost like they're straight out of a cop movie, without the trainer.

Can you elaborate more on this, Sam ? Do you mean that they will be more tactical at their responses to your callouts ?

I'll be happy if they simply slow down around me. I've been run over numerous times while arresting a suspect by some backup unit that was late to the party,

Everything sounds super awesome! Are we going to see the new features in action (in videos) before the release or that's not something you do? It's the first time I'm following active development of one of your mods, missed the boat with LCPDFR.

I assume he means that either 

A) the units arrive in pairs or groups from the same directions, as to simulate responses together and not as lone dogs

and/or

B) units don't pull right up to the scene and run everything over, but stop a bit further back and walk up to the scene, without crashing into each other

(at least I hope that's what he means...)

Question regarding ped customisation:

  • The peds that respond for each type (again, as many as you please).
    • + Ped component models (for each ped)

 Does that mean we'll be able to customise which clothes the backup units will wear?

BTW..

We don't have counties in Canada, what is the distinction between Los Santos County and Los Santos?

Los Santos is the city, Los Santos County is a bigger area which includes the city of Los Santos. It basically goes city -> county -> state

They take into account other units already on scene better and don't smash into them as much.  Note the relatively neatly arranged NOOSE insurgents.

Yes, you will be able to specify a ped model to use a specific component model (drawable) variation.

Do the AI actually know your there now? It was quite annoying having them rear end me into a tree a bunch of times.

Holy cow, this looks like a huge advancement considering the development time. If I recall correctly, the default game's police response cars park up neatly when they see the player; does this use that system here?

This is really stretching it, and I don't expect this, but would it be possible to pick which vehicles are at each police station? I know you said its possible to pick vehicles for the different jurisdictions.
