@ DiepekeelGTA GTA IV had that same lighting effect which is far inferior to the LED reflection effects created by PC modders.

This is something I just noticed, if you take a good look at this little gif here, you can clearly see the reflection of the red/blue flashing lights on the road, and even in the license plate of the red sports car. In the next scene of the three cops chasing a suspect in a foot chase, you can clearly see those red/blue flashing lights flaring up the environment. That's a really nice effect which I can assume will only look awesome at night-time.

That is pretty cool, actually.

 

The lightbar lights did hit off the surroundings in GTA IV, but they seem to have expanded their radius and made the colours (especially the red?) a lot stronger?

 

Judging by the way the colours hit the walls in the back alley, it seems to be a red, then blue, flicker. Extremely fast and much more fitting to that of LED lightbars than the old revolving bulb ones (which is what Rockstar seem to loosely base their own lightbars on?).

 

Judging by the way the lightbar is animated in the V trailer (a hazy red/blue fuzz of colour hanging over it), it would indicate that rockstar actually sat down and changed the way the light bounces off the environment, but never bothered to actually change the light effect itself (so essentiall it's the same as IV's, but instead of red/white, it's red/blue).

 

 

They have a very strange mentality over there. Their list of priorities seems a little backward.

 

 

 

Still very impressed with a human responding to emails, though.

I guess I've never noticed GTA IV had those same effects, however you might have a point that it might has something to do with the speed of it. It definitely stands out more in the environment. This is strange because this is one of those examples of Rockstar putting a great deal of attention to detail, but forgetting about the 'source', namely the lightbars.

Just flicking through youtube and see this; that the Need For Speed Police cars have a fairly good lightbar animation/effect;

Sorry to burst your bubble, but those lighting effects you see in GTA IV were created by R*, modders simply exploited that tidbit with the engine by changing the files to max them out

 

now with that aside, I see no reason why R* is still using these same sprites they used in GTA IV

Yes, that game certainly does have a good lighting system and if I'm not mistaken it is the only game ever made with fully licensed Crown Vics in it. They did quite well with the details as well except that they got the wheels and the headlights wrong. As for the lights and the environment reflections they also did well as well as the siren tones which are very realistic and almost identical sounding to the most widely used siren in America which is made by Whelen.

I am pretty sure Driver San Francisco has a fully licensed Crown Vic in there. Another thing they have in common with NFS aside from the nice flashing lights. wink.gif

That's pretty sweet. I noticed those headlights are slightly different, with a shade added to them. As for the rims, those are different also, as you said.

 

The lighting system is so good -- I was on the bus recently with my laptop and I was bored, so I started to play NFSHP. It was nighttime in the game and in real life, and when i had my lights and sirens, I noticed the illumination flashing all over the walls and ceilling of the bus tounge.gif

The one thing i loved about red dead redemption was the animals espically the cougars my god! I have never legit jumped while playing a game in fear that i can remember but they scared the f*ck out of me. What made i worse was when they came out of nowhere you could literally hear them just before they strike it was crazy how well they made that game now i think about it. Sorry for going of topic but my point is shooting animals CAN be acceptable in games imo as long as they come at you first and you have no choice. I mean in hitman you kill a German shepard and their my favorite dog ! But i didn't feel bad because he was going to kill me ! I know its just a game but people bitch about gta enough with animal cruelty coming into it imagine the haters and the heat they bring. Personally im on the fence in red dead i had no problem with it i had to do it to survive but cute friendly animals would be harder for me its f*cking wierd man because i have no problem with killing miothrerf*ckers but im not to keen on killing puppies you know what i mean ?

No, ELS was created by PC modders and what it does is "create" textures over the light bar to give them a strobe looking effect. This is why alot of the ELS enabled cars constantly repair themselves while in use.

 

 

 

 

I think you have it mixed it with this

I'm sure along with the Crown Vics they may use the buffalos... Something I'd like to see is with the idea of having police dogs in the game they should have K9 unit suvs... colgate.gif

Sent an email about improving the light bar effects, we'll see what happens! Good to see a lot of people emailing about this - great idea! The lighting effects has been something I've always wanted improved even as far back as GTA3 or VC... but every new release I was a little disappointed to see how sub-par the light effects were despite everything else looking pretty great.

 

The effects in NFS:HP look awesome, as well as those ELS mods for GTAIV... if they manage to implement that style of lighting GTAV will be even more incredible than it's already gonna be! biggrin.gif

 

Keep emailing people!

The first thing the PC community do is change the police cars and fix the light bars, so it's not like Rockstar could've somehow missed that. There are thousands of youtube videos of people just showing off their Police cars or ambulances in action, all with proper lightbars that don't just have a graphically poor red/blue haze on top of the car that's supposed to be the lighting.

 

 

This guy has the right idea:
