      ATTN: Mod Creators:   01/23/2016

      Please update the FIRST post of your topic to include important information about your mods and their progress. Since you follow your topics and respond to them (hopefully anyway) you know what people most commonly want to/need to know about your mod and it's current state/progress. If your information will not fit within the first post of the topic, please contact a staff member and we will make it so that you own the second/third (as-needed) posts are yours as well. Having the most important information in the first posts of the topic will hopefully reduce the repetitive questions asked by having the most important information related to a mod within the first post.

      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

Nice, though I expected you to go for the LA mod Hazmat truck that some USAR squads are.

Wanted to go for some variety between the Hazmat and USAR trucks.

Both trucks still WIP. Animations for the floodlight are planned.

Looks great cant wait to roll em into the paint shop, for the Hazmat please consider adding animation to the retractable awing as it would really add to its realism.

HAZMAT truck looks good. But it should have a ladder on the back.

The model used by LA mod is quite different than that. I'll still add the ladder anyway.

Retractable awing? Whats this?

 

Itchboy said a while back I believe he's borrowed the NYC Mixed Car Script from the New York Mod by MikeyPI.

Yes but that is off limits to the public. MikeyPI does not allow usage in other mods.

Itchboy,

 

A retractable awing, is a motorized shade mounted on the side on both USAR & Hazmat Rigs that Firefighters use for shade on long incidents. Sorry but I can't post any links or pictures.

Good point.

Here's an Air Tender with one extended, cover from weather. The protrusion on the side of the Hazmat truck is where it's supposed to be, though I don't think the USAR model has anything like it. The ATF Command Post has the animation for it's Deploy command as an example.

Looks cool but serves no purpose to the game unfortunately. The HAZMAT also already has floodlight animations and it is a complete pain in the ass having 4 different animations for the flooodlight and the awning.


I've reworked the model because of the part thats cutout from the rear of the HAZMAT.

Anyone have top view pics of the HAZMAT? I need info on whats in the roof part of the rear portion.

Where do the aircon and vents go?

Looks like one unit up behind the cab as seen here. Mike has some photos here, but there's no real good angle on the top

Thanks for the pics. I've seen both already and they only give marginal info on what's up there. How did Hoppah even make the original models anyway with such little info?

Welcome to the world of authentic replication.  No matter how hard you try you'll always come up short on the whole picture, Mikesphotos helped him improve many of the models in the LA Mod, prior to that they had to be largely guesswork.  Especially on the roofs of the larger vehicles, kind of hard to find pics of the tops of vehicles that are over 8 feet tall.  Such is why "fictional" is easier, nobody can say it aint accurate if it doesnt really exist in the first place.

Would it be rude to try to contact Mike and ask for help? I'd do fictional but it would be a pain in the ass having to re animate the model once I finish it. And it would bug me every time I see it that "this has been faked".
