Under Construction: Coastal Callouts, Police Radio and more!


Fiskey111

Welcome to the first edition of our new series, "Under Construction"!  Here, we will focus on highlighting new modifications that are in the works, giving you a first look at all the latest development including any features, pictures or other cool information!

 

To start with, I've focused on four amazing modifications that are under development as we speak:

  1. 2015 GMC Savana Coroner Van by Desmond98
  2. Ontario Provincial Police Pack by Thehurk
  3. Police SmartRadio by Albo1125
  4. Coastal Callouts by PNWParksFan

 

Read on to find out all the sweet details regarding these works of art!


 

Welcome to “Under Construction” - the (hopefully) quarterly review of what will be coming soon to LCPDFR.com.

 

This article will showcase anything new being created by our wonderful community!  This may include scripts, vehicles, textures, game modifications, and anything else we might consider awesome!

 

For this month, I’ve decided to focus on two themes with a total of four modifications!

 

Vehicle Modifications

2015 GMC Savana Coroner by @Desmond98

 

An important part of an officer’s toolkit is his radio.  The popular modification Police Radio has a coroner feature that helps clean up those bodies after you accidentally ended that armed pursuit on Grove Street.  Why have your coroners roll up in an old-fashioned van when you could have a new 2015 GMC Savana van!  This van will soon be equipped with lights to keep those wonderful AI drivers from hitting it.  It’s going to be based heavily on the Los Angeles County Coroner’s vehicles, helping you make an accurate fleet if that’s what you like!  I bet your coroners can’t wait to upgrade to this beauty!

OPP Policing Pack by @Thehurk

 

Thehurk has certainly been busy working to bring us some amazing car models!  Lately, he’s been working on converting a fully detailed interior for his ever-loved 2016 FPIU to GTAV, completing his 2015 Tahoe and Charger, and creating an accurate Ontario Provincial Police pack!  Whew, that’s a lot!  An officer is only as good as his vehicle, especially in the remote wilderness of Chilliad or the dangerous streets of Los Santos.  What better car to drive in than a new 2015 Chevy Tahoe, a 2015 Dodge Charger, or a Crown Victoria?  These cars are beautiful and are equipped with an accurate setup following the OPP!  Oh, and did I mention a stunning interior? Oh, and did I also mention that they look gorgeous?

Script Modifications

Police SmartRadio by @Albo1125

 

Now that your coroners have a top-of-the-line vehicle it’s about time you modernize your radio.  Say goodbye to the bulky radio handset and say hello to this sleek piece of modern equipment.  Well, it’s still a radio.  But - it’s much better!  Police SmartRadio will build off of the main features of the ever-loved Police Radio modification.  The radio is designed with customization as a priority -- now you, the player, can customize your radio with different UIs, button locations, and even the new ability to add buttons to the radio!  This will allow other plugin developers to create custom buttons for callouts/plugins -- goodbye keybinds!  Created from scratch, this modification will certainly, once again, change the way we play LSPDFR!

Coastal Callouts by @PNWParksFan

 

Sick and tired of boring old land-based callouts?  Ever wanted to dive out of a coast guard helicopter, save that drowning person who forgot they couldn’t swim, then be hoisted back up on a winch while your copilot flies?  Soon you’ll be able to do all of that and more with Coastal Callouts!  PNWParksFan has been hard at work ensuring that he will provide a top quality modification that includes a bunch of new, high quality features.  Included with the modification will be a custom dlc with a host of coastal themed custom vehicles including helicopters and boats that can carry ten people, a custom boat pursuit AI and backup system, new peds (e.g. a coast guard pilot, swimmer with fins and snorkel, etc.), helicopter copilot AI that is able to fly the helicopter for you, and some appropriately themed callouts.  That’s a lot in one modification!  This will help fill those voids for those port or beach patrols, while also adding so much more to the game!

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!

 

Thank you for checking out the first installment in this new series.

Looks promising!

 

I do think that call-outs should take more of a realistic turn, less of the 'arcade' feel. Police work is full of boring, repetitive calls. 

 

911 Hang Up... Suspicious Person/ Vehicle... etc

Go for it!  :thumbsup:

 

Great job on the article @Fiskey111, look forward to more of these.

Coastal Callouts is probably the most anticipated callout i've ever seen or heard of.  Parks has been working for months on this and i can't wait..it's almost torture at this point :pirate:

Any chance police radio could add a feature to where you can call for EMS and Fire Services? That is a dire need in LSPDFR since the update.

Police SmarterRadio will have an API that us developers can use to create custom buttons for our plugins.

I know PNWParksFan is working on including a button for BetterEMS, so EMS will have a button!

There's no set way - it's basically a token of appreciation given by management for doing something spectacular that deserves recognition.

You could always do something spectacular! Maybe commission a statue of Sam and LMS be erected in the main square of your home town?

Better EMS is officially the first plugin to be integrated directly into Smart Radio! There is currently no firefighting plugin for LSPDFR, but my understanding is there is a project going on to create one eventually.

While I found the water-based activities of the vanilla game tedious at best, I'm definitely looking forward to Coastal Callouts - PNWParksFan is working on something really spectacular in this field. Police SmartRadio also seems to be a worthy successor of the original PoliceRadio, but I expected nothing less of Albo when it comes to quality. :)

 

The vehicle mods also look really neat, though I'll definitely stick to RDE in this area.
