    Yes, the architecture is similar, but very much not the same. 
     
    Regarding your issue with the steady burns, Im fairly certain thats a problem on your end. perhaps you edited the xml? No-one else seems to be having this problem and i tested it and never encountered this issue.

    So you dont have any experience modding in V, you dont know anything about setting up models in V, yet you call someone with experience and knowledge negative because he said something impossible cant be done.

    Yes, 5 minutes to switch names and add extras to create another incorrect pattern.  Like I said before, an accurate light pattern for the utility at this time is not possible with els or default lighting.

    Dude like chill out.  Some people can't be working on mods at all times during the year, and to be completely honest with you, there is no way to technically "fix" the lights as ELS is far too restrictive and there is currently no script that allows switching carcols on the fly to create light stages.  
    Attaching the spotlights to takedowns would make no sense, since you would lose the corona for the spotlights and they are also controlled independent of the takedowns in the real world.

    What a load of horseshit. Democrats never supporting law enforcement. What fucking world do you live on? Do you know how expensive it is to outfit every unit with M4's? Shotguns will do just fine in urban areas. There's a hell of a lot of cops in LA. Cali is already in a lot of debt, it kinda makes it hard when communities have a bad outlook on cops, it makes it hard to raise taxes to help the officers.
     
    Anyway, OriginalLight is correct. LAPD holds on to cars until they cannot physically run. They destroy cars with how hard they run them. As far as I'm aware, there's still some late '90s and early 2000s vehicles still in their fleet. They'll probably be one of the last departments to hold onto their Vics. They really dug the Vic platform, it makes it harder to get rid of them. From the LAPD standpoint, they still use the cars until they can't anymore, so they still had LTDs and boxy Caprice's when the North Hollywood shootout happened, and that was in '98 if I remember correctly. I've seen a few recent pics of early 2000s vics still being used by the LAPD. So they're definitely out there.

    Mikofiticus reacted to OfficerFive0 in [TUTORIAL] How to create reflective liveries for your models   
    This is a two part tutorial, one part is the text, the other is the video. Make sure to watch and read both!
     
     
    Create a new material Set the material the "vehicle_decal" Copy the body Delete everything that's not part of the livery Delete any parts of the livery that wont be seen, stuff like interior trim. Assign the reflective livery material to the body Move the reflective body slightly outward in its respective direction, that way its in front of the normal livery. Attach the reflective body to their respective counterparts
    The way it works is you have a copy of the body,(or just the parts you want to reflect, but for compatibility with other skins I suggest doing the main body) overlaying the model. It is set to the "vehicle_decal" material, with a special reflective livery texture.
     
    The reflective texture is the same as the normal,except it only has what you want to reflect. You want to delete everything except for the reflective bits. You also don't want any unique or identifying features on it, examples would be unit numbers,  license plates, "supervisor" or "traffic unit" text. Since you can only have one reflective texture unlike the livery, it needs to match up with every one of your normal livery textures.
     
    Example of the normal livery texture and reflective livery texture
     
     
     
    Notes
    It is very important that you select "vehicle_decal" and not "vehicle_decal2", if you select the latter, the reflections wont work nearly as well. We only want to do the reflective parts on L0 and L1, since anything beyond that is unnecessary and will waste polys. It is very important when changing the material from the livery to reflective livery to edit the UV mapping and have "copy from channel 2" and "generate new mapping" selected. Otherwise some sections of the body may have bugged mapping. Make sure to replace the mask texture in the reflective material with the vehicles dirt texture. Otherwise, when the car gets dirty, its going to look weird. If you are making a specialized and unique model, (like Michigan State Police for example) you may just want to select only the portions of the body where the livery would reflect, saving many polys.  In the video, I rename the parts to either L0 or L1. That is just to keep things organized. It wont have any effect on the model itself. In this video, I only kept sections of the body that would have the reflective parts. For greater compatibility, you may want to include more, including the door trim and roof. Results may vary, some colors just seem to reflect better.  
     
     
     
     
    Some misc pictures and videos showing the effects.
