Welcome to “Under Construction” - the review of what will be coming soon to LCPDFR.com.
For this month, I’ve decided to focus on four themes with a total of eight modifications!
Florida Highway Patrol Pack by @TaylorSwift
I don’t think we’ve ever seen a pack focused on FHP that’s been this realistic. TaylorSwift has spent his time focusing on making each detail of these models replicate the real FHP cruisers. Almost all of the equipment has been modeled accurately, including interior equipment, lightbars, and even the antennas! You probably noticed the textures are amazing, but did you know that the FHP makes various small changes each year to each car? Well you will be noticing that now since TaylorSwift even worked to make each texture match its real-life counterpart including reflective markers on the rambar that actually reflect in-game lights! What else could possibly top this? Well, how about the fact that the final pack should have anywhere between 8-10 vehicles in total- all of which will be amazing quality! Looks like you better set up that addon DLC; you’ll be needing the room!

Albuquerque Police Department Pack by @Him1250
While we’re discussing vehicle packs, we can’t ignore the fact that Him1250 has been hard at work making a comprehensive APD pack. Consistent with TaylorSwift, the interior equipment, lighting, and every minor detail is almost an exact replica of their real-life counterparts. Do you know how the APD mounts lighting? Well, download this pack and you’ll see how! Curious to know the interior consoles the APD use? Check the models! As you can tell, the theme here is realism and quality. If you’re aiming for realism, equipment is important. However, something that gets overlooked often are the light patterns. Not in Him1250’s pack! He’s focused on also ensuring the flash patterns are accurate to those used by the real APD. All we’ll be needing now is an APD uniform and you’ll be ready to patrol the streets of Los Santos Albuquerque!

Development Crown Victoria Police Interceptor by @Thehurk
Those two packs will be some of the first to contain a brand new development model: theHurk’s new CVPI. This model will bring vehicle modding into the HD Universe for real. Quality is the name of the game now. theHurk’s model will include an HQ engine to ensure your engine looks like the real thing. Each part of the CVPI was individually separated, mapped, and had textures made. This ensures that the parts not only have accurate materials but also accurate specmaps which make the part look absolutely realistic in game! With 48 hours plus working on this project, theHurk has ensured each detail meets his normal standard for quality. In case you have yet to notice, each model he has created has great attention to detail with a focus on quality. Don’t believe me? Check out these screenshots!
Oh, and did I mention this will be a public development model? Now that’s great for the community!
LSPD Texture Pack by @NeOnLaZeR
Not interested in real life departments? Prefer more lore-friendly textures? Well, NeOnLaZeR has returned from his hiatus and is hard at work making absolutely beautiful LSPD textures! These don’t fall far from his norm -- high quality skins for a ton of vehicles! You might be asking “Which vehicles will these fit on??”. Well, I can tell you that he’s covering most of the newly released ELS vehicles. So it looks like your new fleet of ELS cars will have beautiful matching textures to go with them! Oh, and did I mention these are 4K skins? (Note this has been released but I still wanted to feature it since I added this while it was being developed!)

Grand Theft Auto V introduced a large number of ped models, including the multiplayer model - something that is absolutely fantastic. What did they miss? Well, they missed the service sector! But don’t worry - Alex_Ashfold, PieRGud, and AlexBraun have got you covered! In Emergency Uniforms Pack you will have the opportunity to dress your character in a number of uniforms whose quality is second to none. The detail is phenomenal; each uniform is meticulously made and has numerous additional details! The newest version to be released “soon” (when it’s ready) will have numerous updates. Winter apparel, headgear, and body armor all were improved by adding little details (badges, keys, accessories) or by completely overhauling the outfit making them even better than before!
Do you like to shop for accessories? Well, EUP has you covered! Armor, badges, holsters, belts, and radios are just some of the accessories added to your arsenal. Wondering how you will be equipping this assortment of accessories? Well - you will be using their shiny new user-friendly menu! This will allow you to customize your uniform by selecting your department, rank, division, extras, and more! Plain clothes gear has also been added, so when you want to go undercover you are able to! Lore-friendly departments also are added, with RDE 3.1 department support included (e.g. FIB Police, Port Authority, etc). Finally, you won’t be limited to police any longer; now you’ll have access to EUP - Serve & Rescue! Included with EUP will be a host of non-law enforcement apparel including EMTs, firefighters, security, Coast Guard, public workers, etc. With all these choices you better be ready to try them all!

San Andreas Record Data Access System by @sloosecannon
Remember that old laptop you bought for college that has less processing power than your iPhone does now? Well, dust that puppy off and update those drivers, because now there’s a use for it besides being a reminder of how far technology has come! Introducing SARDAS by sloosecannon, an application/plugin that will bring your second computer to life! SARDAS brings the functionality of ped and vehicle searches to your other computer. “Why would I want this?” you might ask -- well, if you’re a person who enjoys being semi-realistic, then you might find it fun to use your second computer as your own personal “MDT”! Oh, and did I mention that it actually ties into your game?? That’s right- John Smith, the guy you just pulled over for slamming into your car while you were running radar will be the same John Smith you search on SARDAS. Also, expect to see some integration with other plugins you might be running!

Police Partner 2.0 by @Darkmyre
Sick and tired of waiting for backup to arrive at your shooting? I mean to be fair they were probably at Burger Shot enjoying their lunch, so how dare you interrupt them. Well, wait no longer! Coming soon to your patrol car will be your own best friend! Not only can you tell him what to do, but he actually listens! Police Partner 2.0 by Darkmyre will bring your patrol-buddy to a whole new level. The AI for your partner has been vastly improved, ensuring he won’t just stand off to the side daydreaming of watching fame or shame. You can even put him to work now, giving him orders during traffic stops so you can focus on daydreaming about watching fame or shame! Don’t want to deal with a person? Prefer those with 4 legs? Well, wait no longer! You’ll be able to ride along with your furry friend who can sniff out vehicles to detect drugs! Wait, you don’t want to share him? Too bad! You’ll have to share when you get the new K9 Unit Required callout, included with Police Partner 2.0. It’s about time we get to ride along with a friend!
Now that you have fancy detective clothing thanks to the hard work of the EUP developers, you might as well put it to good use! Introducing a modification that has been in development for over a year, L.S. Noir by Fiskey111 and LtFlash! This modification was built from the ground up, including a custom made scriptmanager created by LtFlash, allowing L.S. Noir to have some unique features. The first detective-style modification in LSPDFR history, L.S. Noir is designed for player immersion. Featuring gameplay that can last up to one hour, this modification is the opposite of “run and gun”. A unique feature is that of the cross-session cases, meaning your simple Murder case probably will not be completed in one sitting. Tired of simple dialog with peds? Well, L.S. Noir features a custom made dialog class that adds some facial and body animations to liven up conversations! Oh, and did I mention that it also has an all-new, custom interrogation mode?? Oops - must have slipped my mind! Now you won’t just be getting an answer from the suspect, you’ll need to work for it! Is he lying? Leaving information out? Telling the truth? That’s for you to decide! Better start practicing, because your interrogations could make or break a case! L.S. Noir will give you a reason to use the fancy new detective clothing and that new detective crown vic, and with a beta release imminent you can expect the dirty cases of Los Santos to be here soon!

I don’t know about you but to me these all look amazing!
It looks like the future of LSPDFR is bright, thanks to all these talented individuals!
