  1. Ben's Mods: New Dutch Mod, BetterEM5, American Mod

    Hey Hash, Again, I'm trying to get in touch with you through the forum, reminding you that you still didn't respond to my PM on October 6, nor on my reminder of the PM on October 13, after your offer to help us work on the further development on the modding of The Netherlands Mod (TNM). The "Message box", containing my PM's I sent you, to be activated at the top left corner, is telling me that you still didn't even read them, or weren't able to. I don't know the reason for this; but off course, you also don't need to tell anybody as your reasons can easily be most personal. Then again, referring to the tone of your enthusiastic response to my "cry for help" on September 30, it makes me a bit confused that I'm not hearing from you anymore. I do hope, you're still okay and in good health! Should you be able again to read this message and still be willing to join in - or not, please send me a reply. Hope to hear from you real soon. Cheers!! 🥂 Robert 😉
  2. I'm afraid you have to ask that to real modders. As you know, I'm not. Maybe get in touch with Ben12? Cheers!! Robert.
  3. Dutch Mod 3.0 Release and Future of American Mod

    Hey Chad, I just watched your footage and it looks great. There is only one thing I would like you to make aware of. Around the Ambulance you've made a "blue glance" turning around the ambulance. You should consider that to have that removed, since that glance in real life is only to be created with "real blue turning lights" - Our Dutch emergency vehicles used to have them but now they all have blue "flashing lights". So, the ambulance should only spread the same blue glance of the flashing lights just as you did with the police vehicles. BTW, I understand your reluctance for joining our group, but it's not that scary or pushing as you probably might think it is. If it's alright with you, I'd like to get back to you on that in a PM. The only problem now, is that the site is apparently under construction so PM is not working yet properly. Please give me some time. Cheers!! Robert.
  4. I think it's best to package it with "WinRar". As soon as you've downloaded and installed "WinRar" on your computer (a free version will do), right click on the map which contains the complete contents of the map (e.g. "Dutch Mod") you're willing to prepare for package and download. Then the mouse menu will offer you to let "WinRar" create a RAR file with the name of the map of your choice. Then, in this example, the file "Dutch Mod.rar" will be created and ready for you to be uploaded to the forum. There the players should be able to download your file and have it installed. Cheers!! Robert.
  5. Dutch Mod 3.0 Release and Future of American Mod

    Hey Chad, Without seeing your update yet, Ben12 thinks you're joining in is great! He tried to get in touch with you last night, but the site was down. The site is back on air again and received a facelift. Maybe you could reach out to him as well. As soon as I've seen your video I'll contact you through a PM. Afterwards I would like to receive your personal e-mail address so communicating would go much faster. But I'll tell you all about it. Cheers!! 🥂 Robert. 😉
  6. Dutch Mod 3.0 Release and Future of American Mod

    Hi, Reading your post makes me smile. I really am interested in your modding results to look at and to comment on. As you probably know, reading all my forum posts, I think it is fair to say that I consider myself being the stimulator on our forum to find and urge new moderators to keep on developing our Dutch mod; simply, because it's a great mod and the first and only active EM5 mod. For the third time now, I found new modders to continue with its development (2 times a Dutch modder and at the moment an American modder: "Ben12"). A few days ago a second American modder offered his services to help out with Ben12's further development on The Netherlands Mod (TNM), but sadly, until now he hadn't yet replied to the PM I sent him last Friday. As a matter of fact, Ben12 could use all the help he could get because his school studies also take a lot of his time. I'm not a modder myself as I explained several times on the forum earlier. In the Netherlands, I worked as an ambulance driver for some time. So, therefor, I became familiar with the work and procedures of the Dutch EMS, Police and Fire Department, as well as their appearance in the field. Meaning: the colors, striping, emergency lights, numbers and texting of our Dutch Emergency vehicles and "Life Liners" (= EMS Helicopters), the looks of the uniforms of the Dutch first responders, Fire Fighters, Policemen and "Life Liner" personnel, etc. etc. I offered myself as an advisor to the Dutch mod builders. We became a team and made the Dutch mod to what it is today! And, as I assume you are now also familiar with the looks and feel of TNM, you know where we stand and I am not ashamed to tell you that we could really use your help with the further development of TNM. So, whatever improvements you made on the models, you must understand it must be "in line" with our real-life Dutch Emergency vehicles. No offense, but using red and blue lights and American whaling sounds for sirens wouldn't be realistic for TNM. But maybe you already figured that out through YouTube footage. Should you still be able and willing to also work on TNM, I will send you a PM for further agreements to be made. I also would like to ask you now to post your further comments regarding TNM here: http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/21039-bens-mods-new-dutch-mod-betterem5-american-mod/?page=2#comment-320478 I will inform Ben12 about your post. I'm sure we'll all get along fine. Mind you: I'm only an advisor to you mod builders and certainly not in charge or "playing boss" for that matter. BTW: What is your first name? Hope to hear from you soon - and please upload us your work. Cheers!! 🥂 Robert. 😉
  7. Ben's Mods: New Dutch Mod, BetterEM5, American Mod

    Hi Hash, For the record: the day before yesterday I sent you a PM. I hope, as soon as you've read your PM, and you are (hopefully) still willing to join in, please get in touch with me ASAP, so we could get the wheels start rolling... 😉 Cheers!! 🥂 Robert.
  8. Ben's Mods: New Dutch Mod, BetterEM5, American Mod

    Hi Hash, I'm glad you responded to my call out. I love your enthusiasm. I will contact you in PM shortly. Welcome to the club! Cheers!! Robert.
  9. Ben's Mods: New Dutch Mod, BetterEM5, American Mod

    Hey Ben, I'm glad you ARE still working on the mod, being the only one as far as I know. I do think people will understand that you also have a personal life, which surely will be accompanied by personal problems, worries and setbacks - just as anyone else. So for that matter, I don't think people will blame you for your efforts, to further develop The Netherlands Mod (TNM), to go that slow as you are talking about. As long as we'll hear from you from time to time, even with as little news as possible, we can wait. But maybe it's time again if, in your name, I can try to call in the troops from our forum (if there are any), who are now familiar with modding in Emergency 5. Maybe they are experiencing very good results at home with their own private little projects, and are willing to give it go, to help you out with TNM. So, if any of you players think/know, you already have enough modding experience to help and build the development of TNM to a higher level, please respond here. I'll get back to you the moment I read your message. I do know, that Ben12 wouldn't mind if he'd receive some help. I have good contacts with Ben12 already, so I'm sure we can make some good appointments together. Please, let's all try to prevent letting this beautiful mod go to waste, due to a lack of time of the one modder we currently have working on TNM. If only more modders would jump into our aid, I'm convinced we can do the job. Of course you can get in touch with me through PM as well. For what it's worth, I'm Dutch. Cheers!! Robert.

  11. The Netherlands Mod [WIP]

    HEY BEN!! GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN!! At the time you told me that your lack of time was the cause of your leaving. I'm so glad you're able (even if only temporary), AND MOTIVATED, to pick up the further development of the Dutch mod again. I hope you still have my email address so maybe you are willing to get in touch with me again for answering your maybe questions. Surely I can fill you in on the information you need. Should you've lost my mail address, then please contact me through PM at first. I am really looking forward to our cooperation again. For the record, should you have become acquainted in the mean time with other EM5 modders who would like to assist you, please don't let them hesitate. Still, my call out also goes for other modders on our forum who would like to join in (maybe even again?). Cheers!! Robert.
  12. You're so right. The problem is, I don't know anything about modding as you probably know by now. All I did, with the moderators that worked on the Dutch mod, was giving them tips and advice about the looks and the works of the Dutch EMS, which they all appreciated very much. It's frustating to see, over and over again, that each time you think you're getting somewhere with the further development of the Dutch mod, people "abandon ship"... So again I'm trying to get moderators on board, but this time - for the last time. Believe me, on each time there is an enthusiastic moderator who is willing to pick up the Dutch Mod for a further development, there is a lot of work in it fo me too. Getting acquainted wit each other, if only by mail, getting our noses in the same direction, providing him with the material I have, making plans with each other, coming up with new ideas and, most importantly, keeping the ball rolling... But all of this, I always do with great pleasure; and fortunately I can say that each moderator and I worked in great and pleasant harmony. So I can say one thing for sure: I was never the cause for their loosing their interest in continuing working on the mod. On the contrary: my enthuiasm often made them keep on going... Just let's hope we can find someone again who is familiar with modding EM5 and interested in picking up the further development of the Dutch mod; hopefully in cooperation with me. Cheers!! Robert.
  13. Hi Guys, I'm sorry to tell you that the day before yesterday, I learned that ItsLeandro unfortunately decided to stop his cooperation on the further development of the Dutch Mod. He told me that he has lost his interest in continuing his modding activities in general, also due to other personal activities, and he found that playing the game has lost its attraction as well. Also, and I must admit that this is true, he noticed there were too little activities on the forum to show him that there is still an interest in either the Dutch mod or the EM5 game itself. Although I stated, that it is a vicious circle that we are in at the moment, unfortunately, ItsLeandro didn’t fell for my argument: “As long as EM5-players do not see any more updates to appear, there seems to be no reason for them to be active on our forum. And as long modders do not see any more activities on the forum, they see no reason to put any more time in the further development of the mod.” It is possible however that ItsLeandro will place a statement about the ending of his cooperation on the forum in due time, as I requested him to, but I have no certainty about his doing so. So that’s why I now chose to inform you players already. Naturally I was happy to work with him and I do think we really made some progress for which I truly thank him for. We even still had some great plans but, for me – out of the blue, ItsLeandro decided to stop. For me, it is now very frustrating to see, for the fourth time in a row, that modders who worked happily on the Dutch Mod, they all decided to stop in the middle of their progress – all of them did so for personal reasons I’m sure. Obviously, there was nothing I could do, other then to respect their reasons. Again, our Dutch mod has been left behind in the middle of its development and again, with this callout to you, I hope to find modders interested again in picking up the Dutch mod where it’s been left off and, with my help, they’re willing to bring the Dutch mod back to life. Naturally, again, I am offering my help to you guys as I was able to also work very pleasantly with all the modders working on our Dutch mod before you. If you are familiar with modding EM5 and you would like to pick up the Dutch mod for further development, please get in touch with me on the forum or through PM, and I’m sure we can work something out. Although I am Dutch myself, it is not necessary that you’re Dutch too if you're willing to give it a go. After all, at the time I worked with Ben12 as well while he was American. To read my complete story, I would like to refer you to my message (see link below) I posted earlier this year on our forum (Section: Emergency 5 / General talk) on January 4, 2017. I hope to hear from any of you soon to, again, try to finish the job. Cheers!! Robert.

    Considering it's all "for the greater good", I think there's nothing else we can do, then just trying to wait patiently for your release. Over the last few weeks, we've seen some print screens of your work and it all looks very promising. As I'm sure, people can still reach you with their ideas, comments and/or suggestions through the link you provided us earlier: https://goo.gl/forms/ybaWT3kAYYRYqETD3, I also hope you'll keep us updated with print screens and whatever other news you might have, to keep us eager for your next time release. Take your time. Cheers!! Robert.
