GTA V Police Cars & Emergency Vehicles

Put these in the game, in LAPD colours and I will be more than a happy chap.

 

 

Ford ST & Audi Q7 - Strathclyde Police, Scotland.

Yuck! You could play checkers on those cars! I would never want that in any GTA. And whats up with the yellow?

Its called Florescent Reflective Battenburg. Its applied to all Emergency Vehicles in the UK, it allows motorists and pedestrians to view the emergency vehicles more clear and visible.

 

Police are - Blue + Yellow

Ambulance are - Green + Yellow

Fire & Rescue are - Red + Yellow

 

 

 

I would disagree, I find the Layout attractive as most UK people would say, It's all a matter of choice rather...

EDIT - Yellow is there because its scientifically proven as the colour that attracts the eye the most... again making it more visible.

 

As the saying goes "You see / learn something new every day".

In my opinion the Met "Sandwich" layout is not as attractive as the Battenberg, especially on the Astras.

2 Things

 

 

- Its not a European Police car... Its a UK Police car... Get it right...

 

 

- If you actually read it you would see, I said "IN LAPD LIVERY"

 

 

Also

 

You say "EWW European Police cars".... Son, they might not be as "nice" as U.S Police cars, but they are a hell faster.

Do you speak English?

 

Back on-topic, if we're talking about making EM vehicles more interesting then how about updating the ambulances and fire engines/trucks.

 

All the GTAs in 3D seem to have almost exactly the same ambulance/fire models with different paint jobs and lighting layouts. They just don't feel individual.

Agreed, I want to see some sort of Rapid Response Ambulance and different shaped Ambulances / Fire Trucks... WITH GOOD light layouts!

Do you have the British police cars mod for GTA IV btw? Very good, especially with the ELS pack.

Hello there,

 

I have been a huge fan of the Grand Theft Auto series since GTA III, it has been the game franchise I have grew up playing simply because of the vast worlds you create to allow me to do whatever the hell I like, which is something I love to see in games. However, I am a sucker for emergency vehicles and I have always felt they have lacked in Grand Theft Auto, or any game for that matter. The only way people have been able to get the ideal outcome I would like is through modding on a PC, which sadly I don't have a PC Capable enough of running GTA IV.

 

Anyway, I just reach out and ask that you could make the lighting systems on your emergency vehicles a bit more in-depth, I mean, I would love to be able to put my lights on without sirens, and have the choice between different lighting settings. It would also be real cool if the Vigilante missions actually allowed us to persuit law-abiders without getting a wanted level for helping the law.

 

Anyway, I highly anticipate GTA V and I would like to congratulate you on taking over the Gaming World for the day, it truly was an amazing trailer to look forward to and I even made myself popcorn to eat whilst watching. You have truly done an amazing job(from what I can see) on the game I honestly can not wait to seem even a glimpse of what is to come.

 

Thank you,

 

Jake

 

 

That is my email to rockstar, I have emailed them before and received replies. They are a friendly bunch, and care about their fanbase even though sometimes it may seem otherwise.

 

Anyway, I am fine with the cars I just want to see the features for lighting from LCFR added and something more added with the vigilante missions, I would be a very happy bunny if that happened.

 

Anyway, fairwell work in the morning!

I hope their are multiple police car types, like the LCPD had. Sadly, the LAPD is a Crown Vic dominated force, though they have a few Chargers. If we are lucky, and their are state police or county sheriffs, we might see some variety in cars.

Lets keep it to realistic police cars, not ridiculous sport cars. I hope they never do that . . . like they did with the Stinger.

 

This link has thousands of police car pictures. Lots of great references. Even organized by car make. smile.gif Some of you might enjoy looking through it for ideas.

I sent them an email with the suggestion that they should borrow from NFS: Hot Pursuit:

 

 

 

If they are able to simulate the effects above I think that would be a huge step in terms of emergency vehicle lighting.

Great thread. I'm not so sure they will listen to a few moaning fans, but i sent the following email anyway ! biggrin.gif

Just so you don't all get your hopes up... i'm pretty rubbish at maths, but i think i've calculated here that us lot represent roughly 0.001% of the GTA community (based on roughly 20m sales of GTA4). I'm not sure they care about us 0.001% sad.gif

 

 

 

 

RockstarGames,

 

First off, i would like to congratulate you on GTA5. The first trailer was quite a spectacle, and it's clear you have gave us nearly everything we have been asking for in the form of jets, countryside etc - so thanks for that !

 

However, I and many others at the GTA fan community GTAForums.com would like to express our concern over the Police vehicles in GTA5. We do not feel they suit the era that GTA5 is set in, as the police car model and lightbar has not changed since GTA4 which itself was already using outdated looking Police vehicles. On GTAForums.com, there is already a thread with 100's of replies about the Police vehicles in GTA5, and we've only seen 1 minute of the game!. There is a huge community out there that loves the emergency vehicles, and the very first thing they do on the PC version of GTA is mod them to there likening, there are literally thousands of modded police cars - it would be fantastic if we didn't need to do this because they were at a great standard to start with.

 

I hope you understand our concerns over the police cars and there lightbars, and we would appreciate it very much if you took this into consideration.

 

Thanks

I'm hoping they have some sort of filter in place that automatically junks emails that include words like "Carl" "CJ" "Tommy" "Vice City"

 

Would make feedback more appealing once you get rid of all the trash requests that get sent in.

 

edit: It took about 5 days for them to "reply" to the email i sent in.

Depends how you look at it, really.

 

 

While we may be 0.1%, if we're the loudest and first to get in touch about the game, then we could be the most valuable people to Rockstar.

 

 

Fact is, if we're sending emails, all personalised and asking for a similar thing, they should take notice. Fair enough, if we all copy/pasted the same email it'd look lazy and it could just be the one person doing it over and over, but because we're all writing our own unique ones, and all asking for something that's not too irrational (lightbar effects shouldn't be a huge deal, though I do think it's a bit late in the day to be asking them to change the body style of any cars in the game) I think Rockstar may very well take a bit of notice.

 

 

I used to work in a very large company that sold products to millions of people across the world. Their motto was "one email is one million people's opinion". They thought like this because not everyone complains. A lot of people just stop buying a product and never let the manufacturer know why.

 

The fact that we're providing good, constructive feedback to a specific area within their game, in a level-headed and respectful manner should really stand to us here.

 

If I were the guy cycling through the hundreds upon hundreds of emails that come pouring in every day, I think I'd rather read a sincere email about an aspect of the game that is important to someone, rather than a hundred "y u no cj!?" type emails.

 

 

All we can do is hope, and continually contact them asking for them to take us into consideration.

 

PC Modders change lightbars straight away, and there are thousands of videos online just displaying this type of thing, so our argument has a good backdrop and will carry a bit of weight if we can be polite and sincere, in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

I could be completely wrong, of course, but that'd be my opinion and take on it. I'd love to see it implemented, but at the end of the day, Rockstar are giving us a game that will provide us with countless hours of entertainment. If it doesn't have new lightbars, or if it doesn't have San Fierro, or if it doesn't have multiple playable characters, or if it doesn't have interiors, etc. it's still a truly amazing technological feat, and something that a group of people have worked very strenuously on to ensure that people around the world will have something to enjoy and to occupy their time with.

 

When you actually stop and think about it; it's a gigantic challenge and a huge project to be able to pull off. Rockstar create a diverse and realistic sandbox simulator for us. If they can change a few things for us, to add a new layer of enjoyment and a new depth of reality to the game, then that would be absolutely amazing. If they can't or don't, at least we tried asking them, and I'm sure the game will still be great fun to play.

 

The fact that there's a human sitting looking at our emails tells me that Rockstar cares, at least somewhat, about our opinions.

I think you are probably correct there, actually. Though i don't think it's to late in the game to change car models. They are a good 6months away, plenty of time to put in new car models if they saw fit. And lets not beat around the bush, car models in GTA are hardly approaching the ones you see in half decent racers like Need For Speed, let alone the top ones such as Forza 4 and Gran Turismo 5. They are just not comparable, and they won't take 1/5th of the time to do. They are of a decent standard perfectly adequate for a game like GTA.

 

I suspect they are very, very busy however. I'd think altering police car models is somewhere right at the bottom of the list of things to do (Not that it's even on the list). I'm the first to admit there are a lot more important things for them to do in the game.

 

We can all hope though. I'd be super happy if i launched GTA5 to be greated by some high quality modern police car models, and a better lightbar / lighting effect.

 

Has anyone done some testing on how adding some complicated lighting to cars affects framerates ? If you have 10 police cars on screen all with fancy lighting, well.. i don't think these old consoles will be too happy about that turn.gif That in itself is a very likely reason for the effects being so basic.

I too sent them an email (kinda late isn't it). They sent me a personalized response.

 

 

 

Subject: Police

 

 

 

Hi,

 

 

 

I was reading a topic on the very unofficial gtaforums.com, and I got to the conclusion I should send you an email too.

 

 

 

It’s about the police cars in GTA V. Many people have sent you emails on this topic. This is because we believe you could improve your lighting and maybe even change the Police Cruisers in the game completely.

 

 

 

I sincerely hope this will be taken into consideration for the game.

 

 

 

Best wishes, and I hope you’ll make many more awesome games,

 

 

 

Horia

 

 

 

Hey Horia,

 

 

Thanks for the email and for passing along your thoughts on the vehicles. We hope you’re looking forward to the game, and suggest you follow all future news on Grand Theft Auto V at the Rockstar Newswire:

I would love to see some undercover cars that you could only notice with the trained eye... for example the only differences from civilian cars would be things like govt number plates, siren behind the grill and also the LED's on windows and grills

Surely you'd agree that the light bar effects are sub-par? We're talking Grand Theft Auto here, it's not like they can't do any better.

Far from an over reaction, the emergency vehicles in all other games made today are far more detailed and modern than in the GTA games.
