Rockstar need a option to turn on the Emergency lights without the sirens and drive around


And that's why some of us are waiting for the PC version http://www.youtube.c...Dr0M7J9TLA#t=18 (Well, that, and then the infinitly better graphics).

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but R* could have utilized the radio station wheel for different sirens/light flashes/etc since we can't use the radio in emergency vehicles anyways ... :sarcasm:

 

Wow, I never thought about that. 

Could you imagine how awesome that would've been? That would've given us 17 different siren/flash pattern combinations for each vehicle. 

*creys*

Just discovered a glitch to keep the lights on without the siren

Do you mind sharing with us? It would be handy to know.

A way I think they could have achieved better Emergency Lights & Siren Control would be to get rid of one of the handbrakes, and use the now unoccupied X Button (PS3) to turn the Siren sound off but still have your Code 3 Lights running. Pressing X when none of your Code 3 Equipment is running could activate your Code 3 lights. You would need to press X when getting out of your cruiser if you don't want the siren to continue running after you exit the car.

Yeah, I'm not a video game dev, nor am I a coder. But, I just don't understand how hard it would be to have 2 different functions for the lights and siren.

 

I feel they could have done a better job with the cops & robbers game mode this go-around. Let alone not even have the mode in Online anymore. Hopefully they have a DLC down the road. It seems like the emergency/roleplay aspect of the game has a huge following, I don't know why they overlooked it.

Eeh, what? One of the handbrakes? X is THE handbrake. L2 is the regular brake. If this had to be implemented, removing the crappy special abilities would be a lot better.

X is a handbrake. X and R2 are both handbrakes so it wouldn't do harm to remove one. I prefer the R2 handbrake because I don't need to move my fingers as awkwardly.

Well it would be really hard to recreate, unfortunately. I had just spawned outside the sandy shores hospital. Right as I spawned, a random pursuit drove by me. Still standing out front of the hospital, I scoped in and sniped the 2 deputy's right as they passed in front of the gas station in front of Trevor's place. The car came to a rest and I could only see the lights in the distance. I ran from the hospital to the car and got in and poof, no siren. Got out and back in, still no siren. Like I said, this would be really hard to do again lol.

No, using X (the HANDBRAKE) makes you drift.  Using R2 is REVERSE.  So you're using the REVERSE as the "brake."  It's not the ACTUAL handbrake.  Handbrakes in real life and in the game make the car turn 90 degrees much easier, therefore allowing you to drift well.  X is the only handbrake in the game, R2 is reverse (and can be used to break as well)

Last time I used a save editor it froze my game and would not let me play the game until I cleared my system cache so i had to start the game over.

 

HAHA, well, that is why you make a backup.

 

I modded my Police Riot giving it BP tires.  100% armor upgrade, engine/brakes upgrades, and changed it's color to Matte Black.

 

I also modded my Lazer for ALL THREE characters giving them 100% armor, engine/brakes upgrades, and changed the colors to Chrome, Metallic Black, and left one Stock Colored (Stone Silver)

 

I also have the Titan sitting on Trevor's helipad, Stinger GT in Trevor's Sandy Shores garage, Skylift on Michael's helipad and a Dominator sitting on Franklin's helipad.  You can also get the sh*tty Annihilator helicopter in SP, as well, with the editor of course.

L2 is brake and reverse, R2 is actually accelerate. I meant R1 was the other hand brake. Are you using the default controls?

Buffalo police car for sure. Maybe a Mesa Grande version for the country side and off road? Just my thoughts :-)

I don't think they had the buffalo police cars in GTA V.

If GTA ever returned to a UK scenario, British police now have the cars to inspire!

Yeah, there is a Police Buffalo.  It spawns only in one location though.  Under the bridge at night in Strawberry near the Police Impound.  There is a little loop for the bus transit at night.  It spawns there, along with the Unmarked Cruiser, Police Bike, and Police Transporter.

It's a shame this thread isn't more active, it could serve as a hub for those whom love Police and EMS role-play in GTA. 

 

I'd like it to be more active too.  I don't really role play.  But I do love the police vehicles.

Just realized a good way to set up a DUI check point. First get 3 stars then get to a road block and use cheat to get rid of stars. This will leave you with cones and other road block material. That is if the ai police don't kill you or wreck everything.

Has anyone else noticed that the badge on the Female LSPD officers are more properly colored like the LAPD ones. They are gold with silver rays and have Blue writing. While the males officers have just plain silver.

Hello everyone !

 

Just a quick post to share with you something I don't understand at all. 2 things actually.

 

1 - Why is the radio available in emergency vehicles in Online, but not in Story mode ? (Was the same thing in GTA 4);

2 - In Online, why are the sirens staying on even if there is nobody in the vehicle (and again, why not in Story mode) ?

I really liked the police cars in V, but I think that the vapid ones should have had civilian versions. Anyone can see through the unmarked cruiser's disguise, as there is "police cruiser" written on the back, and also because only we are the only ones that have the 2nd and 3rd stanier generation vehicles.

 

This is why I use the unmarked buffalo or the granger instead of the unmarked vapid, as they are, shall I say, more incognito.
