I don't think there's any taboo there. They're probably doing it either as a tradition now, or because they want some sort of mini realism where a mechanic would be scared to tamper with government cars.

I don't see what's the big deal with people wanting that anyway. Police cars are always available as a civilian model too and there's not much point in ''modding'' an ambulance.

Because you wouldn't be able to take a clearly stolen police/government car to a mechanic in real life. If they replaced Los Santos Customs with chop shops in the next game, then maybe this would work, but I like that I can't modify them. How are we going to modify a police riot, anyways?

Tradition? Tradition was 6 stars, tradition was round hud, but no. There are no any traditions. I don't know what they thought while making GTA V, but it seriously doesn't feel like GTA game. It even doesn't feel like open world game, because they blocked almost every cool feature, and made it online/mission exclusive.

On one hand, I suppose it might make sense thinking that no mechanic would touch these types of vehicles, but on the other hand, these vehicles ARE serviced (probably on-site), so why not implement something like a special garage that will only accept law enforcement/emergency vehicles, or maybe even throw commercial vehicles into the mix. You could upgrade/modify these toys at one place, and take all of your other vehicles to a normal garage.

I agree. It's amazing how LINEAR (yes, look up the definition) this "open world" game is. R* dictates what we are allowed to do. I wish we could mod air vehicles as well. And I wish we were able to put decals/stickers on our cars. Like when we can put our crew emblem on the car.... why not allow us to put more than one and allow us to put it where ever we want on the car??

couldn't agree more. Really wish they would implement this into the game. I was kinda surprised the first time I pulled into Los Santos Customs with a semi and I couldn't customize it. Oh well, one can only hope.

I'm also annoyed by this. I just want to slap a turbo on a cop car so it stops being dog piss slow unless the AI is driving.

It's likely because the company wants its franchise to evolve into something more than a game that kids' parents are trying to remove from shelves.

 

This isn't Saints Row. You can't bring a police car to an auto body shop and say "Paint it pink." They'd call the cops on you. There's supposed to be a framework of realism to pair with the satirical nature of the GTA franchise. It's not unfair for a company to evolve its direction on games, and I'm sure they don't expect everyone to be onboard with it. It would be somewhat silly to just rehash the same game over and over with better graphics.

Realism in a game that includes a spaceship when completing the 100% of it. Where a psychopath can eat/kill anybody and still be walking free on the streets, realism in a game where you have a minigun as a 2 handed weapon... wtf

They should be customizeable since the ford cruiser has two sets for bumpers, skirts, spoilers and hoods.

Dayum. I forgot I already posted in this thread and clicked this to post the exact same thing I posted almost a month ago.
