The Vapid Stanier, the "Crown Victoria" police cruiser from GTA IV, makes its return as a civilian model in GTA V.

However, there is one little thing that R* missed, and proof that the car didn't receive a makeover like some other IV era cars.

The LCPD laptop screen image remains, floating in mid air above the cars center console. At first, I thought it was left over from the LSPD, because in the first trailer this car was seen as an LSPD cruiser. But if you zoom in on the image with a sniper scope, it clearly says "Liberty City Police Department".

It would be impossible if they made every interior of each car considering they amount of different vehicles that are in the game. Not most people would notice that when driving anyway.

We can fix those fault models in PC version. No more laptop floating in cars and no more Fire Departement logo's on trucks.

The Laptop is a simple texture that was a left-over that somehow managed to be overlooked by R*, it could be a glitch aswell considering the fact that its only a screen and not the full laptop we're talking about, anyways it can be fixed in the PC version or in an update.

 

@PhillBellic

 

I think those Logos serve as a small tribute to the FDLC as a remininsce to the events of 9/11 , the ribbons around suggest that aswell as the other badges that say ''In memory to our fallen brothers''

Yep. Stuff like this is common in AAA games when they reuse assets, because recreating everything is a pain in the ass and a waste of time and money.

 

Anyway, no harm, no foul.

Crowns vics are outdated. I, for one, like the Taurus, but yeah, it would be nice if the other LSPD cars were used for variation.

I'd like the marked Buffalo to be used.

Good find OP, more proof of the copy paste effort Rockstar made in a lot of this game. Yet they couldn't copy paste the GOOD things:

 

- Press Y/Tri to leave engine running, hold to turn it off

- Burger shot and Clucking bell interiors

- Food vendors on the street functioning. They copy pasted the f*cking models and NPCs but NOT the ability to buy from them, so f*cking retarded

- Missing Bowling, Pool, and several other minigames

- Probably even more that I can't think of at this moment

 

It's like really Rockstar, what are you doing. Just, what the f*ck are you doing.

Good find OP, more proof of the copy paste effort Rockstar made in a lot of this game. Yet they couldn't copy paste the GOOD things: Copy/pasting things that are exactly the same are common in games.

 

- Press Y/Tri to leave engine running, hold to turn it off This is weird that they left it out.

- Burger shot and Clucking bell interiors Interiors of buildings are a lot different than one texture of a car that accidentally left in. Besides, they wouldn't copy and paste that. It's LS, not Liberty City. Cars won't look different, because they're cars. Buildings will though. Tell me, is every McDonalds the same looking inside? Is every BK?

- Food vendors on the street functioning. They copy pasted the f*cking models and NPCs but NOT the ability to buy from them, so f*cking retarded They made the vendors, but didn't let you buy food from them? I'm seriously curious, because I don't remember ever encountering a street vendor.

- Missing Bowling, Pool, and several other minigames This is just self-explanatory. They're not gonna bring back every single minigame from the game before it. I mean Jesus, you act like they left those minigames out without adding any new ones. The jump from IV to V is a lot better than the jump from SA to IV, don't ya think?

- Probably even more that I can't think of at this moment

 

It's like really Rockstar, what are you doing. Just, what the f*ck are you doing. They're reusing assets to save time and money. Every AAA company does it. The same truck has been in a CoD game like 3 games in a row. 

And you gotta remember guys, limitations have a lot to do with everything. I mean, just look in the distance. Jaggies, jaggies everywhere!

 

Plus, the framerate drops quite a lot. If there is a next-gen version, it should be a lot better. Emphasis on should.

Actually, there are some Street food vendors in Vespucci Beach & Del Perro Pier selling to pedestrians and break down into two different variations which are Hotdog Vendors and Burger Vendors. I think the reason why they left this out is because of this Little feature not being that really important and because the vendors only happen to be in one location.

Could it be intentional? It's clear that the police force is done using these cars, and I remember reading that what they actually do in real life when this happens is they redo them and sell them off as civilian cars to recoup some of the loss of replacing an entire fleet of vehicles. Could this be a subtle nod to that? Probably not, because you'd have thought that they'd remove the laptop from a civilian sell off car, but you never know.

Even so. It's honestly not a lot of work to have it in. It's like not being able to have the car running. That does not take a lot of effort/work to do, but I could be mistaken, because I don't know everything that has to do with everything in game development. Only the important/basic parts.

You don't know anything about design.. ALL developers re-use models and textures from old games, and R* forgot to remove one thing so they're lazy? You should seriously be banned from the forums for all the sh*t you talk.

It's not a big deal to me. Just pretend these vehicles were sold to Los Santos directly from Liberty City and left unchanged. Typical government oversight.

Well the food vendors could have been useful to regenerate health. Especially since you lose health easier in V. I know there are some soda vending machines but I can only find some in 24/7.

And I doubt they would bring back these features as DLCs. In a patch, maybe, but not a DLC.
