Why do police know where you are?

Because game logic, that's why.

The police fix mod for PC removes their "magical supernatural powers" to know where you are EXACTLY and removes their ability to "see" through walls, which is what the cause of your complaint. The code/program that handle this in the existing script is flawed and needs changes.

How To Get Away with M

 

Because it's a game and if you could just hide it wouldn't be a game.

 

There's a difference between hiding in a spot where a cop could accidentally find you due to your hiding spot and having a cop run down a very specific pathway way across town that in reality they'd never think to look in and "conveniently" find you hiding in a corner that's behind bushes that's behind a dumpster that's behind a wall of debris.

 

Oh and they don't search, they stop as close to you as possible, get out of their car, and run directly to you. That's not real searching.

Not, true at all, they only have a rather wide search radius.

They also do not run directly towards you, they search each block around you.

The system is just designed in a way that you have police around you seatching your area instead of searching a completely different part of the city, in order to keep the player engaged at all times.

Oh and the fact that random police cruisers spawn out of nowhere is just incredibly stupid. Really hope the wanted system gets fixed in the next gta.

It is what it is. The only comment I can express. I will say this- The tunnel from the jewelry job is an option in which cops will never find you, ever as long as you stay underneath. At least from my times I tend to go ummm..crazy. :)

when you cant stand next to one for more than 10 seconds without getting shot at, it's a bit ridiculous. Also, anyone can shoot at you but the second you fist fight someone you get a wanted star? come on... I have even had someone call the cops for just running and stopping too close to them.

And don't forget the instant 2 stars for bumping into them. In gta 4 you could bump into the cops a few times before you got a wanted level. I dont know why R* made them seem like they are so high on amphetamines they shoot anything that moves in 5. Still love the game though.

I like how when you kill one npc in the grand senora desert with silencer on and no witness you still get wanted level

The police AI and their level of response is one of the WORST things about this game. Surely if youve managed to hide in a tunnel or some other secret spot they could have programmed the cop AI to search blindly all over the place in a very area circle around your location instead of homing in on you like a missile. It would have been great to see/hear the cops run into an alley near where youre hiding and then not find anything and say so on the radio.

 

Another huge fun-killing aspect about the crap cop AI is that it doesnt let you have a fun shoot out with gangs. 5 shots later and you get a star and the cops show up to ruin the fun.

 

This is one reason I play on PC and PS4. Ps4 for Online and PC for SP with blessed mods to fix all the broken nonsense!

very 2d based also. you can run up a hill as long as you don't have a chopper following you. what bugs me is how they have better vision inside a vehicle... wouldn't that hinder your vision a little? they can magically see farther since there are two of them in one car they morph like power rangers.

idk if i want the police to be more like real life.

black characters would get killed even at zero stars and then they would just sprinkle some crack lol

That is just racist.
