    LSPDFR 0.4 - Ambience

    After a long break away from LSPDFR and modding, I'm looking forward to get back into it again once 0.4 is released. I can't wait to setup my own law enforcement agencies and their jurisdictions, it seems a lot of the things that I wasn't happy about with 0.3 appear to be addressed with this version. It would also be interesting to see how the add-ons and plugins are updated to run with 0.4.

    LSPDFR 0.4 - Pursuits & Intervention

    Hopefully with 0.4 we won't have to use as many add-ons and callouts as the new features and changes will more than make up for it.

    LSPDFR 0.4 - Pursuits & Intervention

    I'll admit, recently I've lost interest in LSPDFR due to frustrating things like incompetent AI and lack of variation in pursuits. However, this does look like a promising update and it makes me want to play it again. I also hope you've addressed the annoying issues in 0.3 like the AI doing u turns on highways and accidentally triggering a pursuit with a random civilian while there is one already active.

    How Americas Police Cars Have Changed

    Same can be said for the UK, a lot of forces are replacing their traffic vehicles with 330d and 530d Estates and the new X5 just to name a few which I would assume are for space and storage reasons. The traditional force livery is being replaced with the battenberg which has now become the standard nation wide livery for economical and safety reasons.

    The Times Article

    Certainly makes a nice change from all of the negative articles we've heard about LSPDFR in the past. Congratulations on being featured, a really good story to read.

    LSPDFR 0.4 - The Technology

    Will we be able to see a video preview of the new pursuit AI in action or will it just be screenshots? Looking forward to see how much the AI has changed in this version, a competent AI will be a game changer for sure.

    [Req] Remove auto melee when AI is close to you

    There's nothing more annoying as well when dealing with a suspect and you press B on the controller to leave the menu but your character knocks them out in the process.

    Rage Plugin Hook constant error.

    So I've done a bit of more research and suppose you could try these: 1: Remove ScriptHook completely, will Rage Hook work without it? Ensure your game only loads the LSPDFR plugin on startup by updating the Rage Hook "startup.rphs" file and disabling other plugins on startup. 2: If #1 does solve the issue, re-install scripthook using the latest version. If you haven't already, I also recommend installing Albo's common dll which can be found in the misc section under downloads if you set filter to 'most popular downloads'. 3: Have you added Rage Hook and GTA 5 to the exceptions in your firewall? Will it work if you disable your antivirus? 4: Just to clarify, have you set admin permissions for both Rage Hook and GTA 5? Good luck.

    Texas school shooting

    Couldn't help but bring this video up after reading through this thread, perhaps people could gain another perspective from it. Unfortunately this is a cycle of violence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3VQULyT390 Isn't this the US equivalent of terrorist attacks that are ochestrated throughout Europe every once in a while? Maybe, or maybe not.

    Rage Plugin Hook constant error.

    You could try this. Under advanced settings, untick "Enable custom backgrounds for loading screen" and "Disable DirectX Hook". This will match the settings I use for my Rage Hook and you can report back and see whether or not this solves the issue. If by chance it does, you may enable custom backgrounds if you want them or not. Could you also list what command line switches you have enabled under "game settings"? Are you running Rage Hook through windowed mode?

    Rage Plugin Hook constant error.

    I'm not sure this is the best place to post support for Rage Hook as there is a separate forum for it on the author's website. You could have a look on there and see if somebody has already posted a solution for it. I have not seen this error before however I will do my best to help. If possible, could you post a screenshot of your GTA V directory showing where you have installed Rage Hook? Could you also list what your advanced settings are and what your game settings are under 'command line switches' as that could help us identify what is causing the error. Just in-case you don't know how to access this, launch GTA V with Rage Hook as normal and there should be a grey options icon next to the red x icon which will open the settings window. Here are a few things you could try: Does this error occur with previous versions of Rage Hook? Have you made sure your GTA V folder has full admin permissions? Even if Rage Hook does, it might be an idea to check. Locate where you have installed GTA V and right click on the 'Grand Theft Auto V' folder -> Properties -> Security. Ensure your user account has full control.

    LSPDFR 0.4 - The Technology

    I second this, I also wonder if it's possible to improve how they negotiate pedestrians so they avoid hitting them the best they can. I've always thought the backup AI was more reckless than the suspect AI.

    LSPDFR 0.4 - The Technology

    Nice to see that a lot of work is being done to the AI for both cops and criminals, hopefully that means there's more variation in pursuits in terms of paths the suspect takes and that they can present a challenge to the player. In 0.3 one of the problems I noticed is the suspect doesn't try any maneuvres and they would always carry on in a straight line using the same road over and over. I have a few questions though, are there any improvements to the AI that you would have liked to implement but are unable to due to game limitations? Does the engine still offer you many ways to improve the AI despite this obstacle? I hope that makes sense. My final question is, have you fixed the AI making U turns on major roads and highways? Looking forward to future updates, keep up the excellent work.
  14. Looking for help on this one. Does anyone know what font is used for 'POLICE'? I have used a number of font identifying websites and haven't been able to find the one I'm searching for. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you. It looks like a stencil/sci fi font type but I'm not entirely sure. I hope the image is good enough.
