    Izick reacted to Sam in LSPDFR 0.4 - Coming February, 2019   
    So, it's been a while since we've provided an update on LSPDFR 0.4.  As you might've guessed from the title, though, there's a good reason for this...  It has taken us a lot of work to get to this point, and in the last couple of months alone we've made hundreds and hundreds of changes.  Anyway, here we are - who knows how many months late - but we're here.  No riddles, no treasure hunts, no @MSA (at least I'm pretty sure they're not here), but straight to the point!  We can now confirm that we'll be releasing LSPDFR 0.4 in February, 2019.  
     
    Anyway... with the scary part out of the way, I wanted to take the opportunity to explain ourselves a little.  No, @LMS wasn't renditioned to an IAA black site, no I didn't fall victim to the Orbital Cannon, and no...  the ghost of @ineseri didn't drive a train into us.  Perfectly plausible scenarios given our silence about 0.4 as of late, but we're actually still alive.  Instead, we've been pretty busy rushing to the finish line as far as 0.4 is concerned, and to complement the big news above, we thought we'd throw in a couple of sweeteners below to show just how much 0.4 is going to change things. 
     
    We've talked a lot about our Character system in LSPDFR 0.4.  It's one of the biggest changes to the mod, but we also think it represents an entirely new direction in general.  I say this because, not only does it allow us to have a bunch of really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod, like customizing a character, but it also lets us have a bunch of other really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod!  Having your own character dials up the immersion quite substantially, but we wanted to take things to another level.  We thought, for example, wouldn't it be cool if instead of spawning as Franklin in Franklin's house, you could instead, say, I don't know?  Actually spawn as your own character, in their house.  Or maybe, instead of switching to Trevor and your camera panning down to him being pursued by the LSPD, you could switch to one of your other characters, and "Google Earth" down to them being the LSPD. 
     
    LSPDFR 0.4 introduces a fully functional GTA Online Apartment to single-player, complete with transition sequences, working interactions and more Steve Haines than you can handle.
     
    It's not just that, though, we really wanted to dial it up.  Having your own character, them having an apartment, switching, customizing, it's all cool, right?  But you might be thinking, what's the point?  These are "multiplayer features".  And sure, LSPDFR is and most likely always will be a single-player mod, but that doesn't mean we can't think outside of the box every once in a while. 
     
    Recently, @Cyan, in addition to all of her work on the website, has also been developing an all new framework called LSPDFR Sync.  LSPDFR Sync lets you connect up to your LSPDFR.com account in-game, and you can then synchronize your LSPDFR characters with your LSPDFR.com profile.  To top it off, we've brought back statistics too.  Ever wanted to know how many shots your character has fired?  It's as simple as taking a look at your character's profile on the site - which, we should add, you can actually edit.
     

     

     
    LSPDFR Sync provides all-new, seamless connectivity with your LSPDFR.com profile.
     
    And frankly, it doesn't even end there.  When I said before that we wanted to dial the immersion up to the max, I guess I lied.  What I actually meant to say was that we'd just ripped the dial clean off the controls, strapped it to a rocket, and sent the damn thing up to the moon.  Not only can you now create a character, customize them, share them, spawn as them...  You can actually do things as them too!  Like, actual game things.  Ever wanted to run the triathalon as your LSPDFR Character?  Now you can.  Or, how about practicing with your sidearm down at the range?  Yep, got that too.  Simply want a can of sprunk from a vending machine?  No problem.
     

     
    With the introduction of a new innovative system by @LMS, it's now possible to do many of the single-player minigames while playing as your LSPDFR Character.
     
    Of course, with the Character system, and all of the features that come with it, being such a huge part of LSPDFR 0.4 it'd be easy to forget that this is a police mod.  Indeed, I think we almost did given the grotesquely gargantuan amount of work that has gone into it.  Fear not, though, as we have also been working on some incredible new gameplay features too, including massive improvements to interaction with suspects and people that you arrest.
     
    LSPDFR 0.4 introduces, in a game-changing way, the ability to take hold of and drag arrested suspects.  Yes, we know that there's some great API mods which have held the fort, and we're grateful for that, but this is something we wanted to get absolutely right, and indeed, we think the result is simply stunning.  The possibilities are pretty far-reaching too and encompass just about everything from shoving suspects up against cruisers, to personally escorting them into their cells.  
     

     

     
    No, these aren't cutscenes.  No, they're not edited screenshots.  With 0.4, this is real.

    Izick reacted to Black Jesus in California Deadly Force Bill   
    This is going to change nothing. They know legislation that specifically tells cops when they can use deadly force, won't get passed, so they did this instead. Which makes the politicians involved look good, and makes it seem like there's change going on. But this bill has no meat to it.
     
    The legislation would change the standard from using “reasonable force” to “necessary force.”
    That means officers would be allowed to shoot only if “there were no other reasonable alternatives to the use of deadly force” to prevent imminent serious injury or death.
     
    It's just semantics. If an officer feels it was reasonable to use deadly force, then they'll already feel it was impractical to use other methods first, hence them using deadly force.  It's the same use of force law, with an extra step in their reports. They'll just have to add an extra detail about why other tools where impractical to use in that situation. It won't encourage the use of less lethal weapons anymore than actually telling them to use those tools when it's practical to do so.
     
    Necessary forces leaves the same amount to interpretation. An officer just has to interpret why they felt it was necessary, as opposed to reasonable. This bill changes nothing, but its real goal is working lol

    Izick reacted to Sentinel55 in Sentinel's Showroom   
    Hey there! I'm late to the party so I guess I don't have to explain what this here is.
    I have a ton of projects to show. And I finally have enough time to actually release stuff for Gta 5.
     
    Current projects: 
    - CHP CVPI Pack
    - Coon Rapids Traffic Enforcment Crown Vic
    - 2005/2006 Detective/unmarked Crown Vic 
    - Hawthorne Police CVPI
    - Something like EUP for Michael 
    - LASD CVPI
    And an uncountable amount of things not related to Law Enforcement
     
     
    The first one I want to show you is the CHP Crown Vic. 
     
    Features:
    - Forza Vic
    - Accurate lighting
    - The front and rear of the lightbar can be controlled independently, resulting in 9 different modes.
    - Accurate Equipment
    - Animated parts (antenna, keys, exhaust)
    - Working wipers
    - Reflective decals
    - And a lot of useless little details no one will ever notice (blinking dashcam lights for example)
     
     
    That should be enough for now. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I don't bite.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you there buddy, I didn't get to use TwistedScopes LAPD pack but I certainly don't think it was an extremely high quality version. I think it was a decent stop-gap until Scudo released his pack, but Scudo and Desmond are on another level of quality. What's more, in terms of starting date, that's not all that relevant. Desmonds Utility has taken 2 years, and so far no one has managed to hold  a candle to it. It's simply the best vehicle on this site, no questions asked. It's taken Des two years (admittedly he's been working on various other projects) but I certainly simpathise with the fact it takes a while to create various vehicles to the same level of quality. 
    Yes it's true Scudo you don't have to release anything, but at the same time a lot of people have been following this and looking forward to their release. And the quality is sublime, I've had a look through your Cali images again, Jesus Christ your cars look amazing. I'm not sure what to  say about motivation, other than the fact that at least if you finish it you'll have the sense of accomplishment of having completed the best vehicle pack on the site. What'd be a real shame would be for you to have put in all this time and effort so far, to produce no result whatsoever, because that would have been a waste of your own time and skill. You can always palm it off to someone you feel can finish it as well, that you trust and that has the level of ability that you've so clearly demonstrated. 
    You're human, and motivation comes and goes, we all understand that. It's difficult to have the same level of continuity and motivation over the period of a year, especially considering the difficulties that you've faced Scudo with the death of a family member.
