  1. Mod theft has been around for years and years and years. Awful of them to start selling the models though. Appreciate the update and it will surely still be interesting and fun to watch MT Mod be developed
  2. Agree, simple and free. Although after a while your station costs increase with each new station, so I've kind of stalled out on it since that happened. There's some sort of game on Steam called 911 Operator or something similar, and some people said they have enjoyed it while others have said it's nothing like being a real dispatcher. I would assume all of these kind of games would be hit or miss depending on what you are looking for in it.
  3. not sure if anything i have would be helpful to you or not so take a look: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYtAU9XWNA5c81deqbv-hTDGxbWApXqHB i also have a Code 3 X 2100, Ecco 5280A, Fed Sig single Vipers, a (Whelen) B-Link Patriot, and also the B-Link programming software should it benefit you. i just don't have a lot of free time right now :(
  4. Our sheriff's office is usually tripped out to it if it is in or near the roadway and dispatch tries to get a hold of the owner to come get it. If they can figure out that the cows escaped from a nearby pasture then sometimes its just faster for the deputies to guide them back into the pasture. Then again, we rarely have state resources in our county except for the state park ranger, and we don't have federal officers whatsoever. I think having the option for the deputies to hold/"corral" the cows would be nice too.
  5. It's Big Sky country:) For the sake of diversity I'd say to go ahead with the 2011-2014 state Charger, always appreciate a bit of variety myself
  6. Smaller counties in Iowa usually use the county number and badge number. County numbers are assigned alphabetically. The sheriff of the county is typically badge #1. Cities that are dispatched by the county may or may not use the county number, but usually still use their badge number unless it's a larger city (Polk County cities, Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Cedar Rapids, etc.) For example, one of the towns near me in Boone County has badge number 500-50x, so they would be sent as 8-500, 8-501, 8-502, etc. Des Moines, our largest agency, does it this way (courtesy of the Des Moines Scanner Squad Facebook): ***Watches and car/officer numbers-- First number is watch: 100 series = 1st watch (9 pm - 7 am) 200 series = 2nd watch (6 am - 4 pm) 300 series = 3rd watch (2 pm - 11 pm) 2nd number is assigned side of town: 0 & 1 = west side (ex.: 210, 106) 2 = east side (ex.: 321, 123) 3 = south side (ex.: 234, 331) 4 = downtown (ex.: 142, 246) The north side is covered by either west side or east side, depending on what side of the river it’s on. They don’t have their own middle number. 3rd number is beat. 123 is 1st watch, east side, beat 3, and so on. Wagon is 61, so 161, 261, and 361 depending on watch. CSI/Ident are 99 and 99 Adam. 500 = watch captain 510 = watch lieutenant 501 = west side sergeant 502 = east side sergeant 503 = south side sergeant 504 = downtown sergeant 400 series are traffic 600 series are neighborhood and school officers 700 series are the detective bureau Adam is used if there is more than one car on duty on the same beat at the same time. Baker, Charlie, and David are the supervisory (Sgt, Lt, or Capt) cars for each shift. Baker is first watch, Charlie, is second watch, and David is third watch. -- If you're talking specifically about unit numbers on their cars, I'm not sure how any of the cities do that. Some have numbers, some don't. The county sheriff's offices that have take-home cars (most if not all), the license plate is usually their badge number. State agencies also generally use badge numbers for their cars (I'm not sure what DNR does with their conservation officer's trucks).
  7. first one is a Dodge Intrepid, you're right on the others
  8. Best bet would be zmodeler, my guess is that whatever is the latest release of v2 would work best with importing/exporting. unfortunately as far as I'm aware there aren't any import/export scripts for 3ds max specific to em4
  9. You can sign up here to play. You don't have to be in an alliance if you don't want to be. I play solo mostly because I don't play very often, but it's pretty simple to play once you get the hang of it.
  10. Agreed, haha. I admittedly did not Google it but I wonder if it is supposed to have domes/lenses? Unique looking bar for sure and it looks like you kept it pretty low poly, so good job!
  11. It's definitely a Code 3 product, but the bad part is all their products look the same to me so I can't tell which one either:) I would lean towards an RX2700 and away from a x2100, but that's just a gut feeling.
  12. The Code 3 SlickStik might be fun to have but not sure how/if its possible for the sweeps would be implemented. Else if you want to stick with Whelen some combination of Dashmasters and Dashmisers I think might look good too. Advantedge model looks good! Nice work. You make great work out of EM4's low poly requirements.
  13. We have a municipal utilities company that handles electric and water, Northern Natural Gas does gas, and the telephone company handles TV, internet, and phones. Please for the love of God do not put a strobe Vista on the Intrepid. Lol. While I don't know this for certain, my assumption would be that a halogen/rotating version would be cheaper than a strobe version at the time.
  14. It's a pretty old game and people are slowly leaving like with all other games. Personally I don't make EM4 mods because I don't know zmodeler yet and it seems like a vastly different method of making vehicle mods (getting them to show up and work in game). Never really took the time to learn
