      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.

This is a fictional town, I plan to make some very cool stuff, but not everything is started or finished. I will give updates to it on a weekly basis, if not every couple of days.

You might want to decide what stations (if any) will be on map. 11 FF/EMS stations is a lot. 

On the PD side of things you could go 2 routes. 

1. Just have a handful of base cars (think LA mod) with no unique numbering etc. 

2. Have unique numbering on cars. Then you'd have to decide how many cars on map. Usually it's 4 (patrol cars) but if you wanted to make it more realistic add 6-10 depending on the map size.

 

Good luck I look forward to the updates.

Some advice regarding multiple unit numbers. Most people tend to just slap a different number and call it a day. Having 5 identical Taurus cruisers with the same exact equipment gets really boring and makes each unit feel like a clone of the other. Sometimes though, vehicles in a fleet have mild differences between them despite being 'identical'. Example here:

This one has two bumper mounted speakers.

On the opposite end, this one has speakers inside the bumper. It also has an unkown object on the left grill. The airhorn is also positioned more to the right.

For the purposes of Em4, try making one instance of each vehicle. On a police side, a decent sampling could be like this:

  • Taurus cruiser
  • Taurus cruiser w rambar
  • Taurus cruiser supervisor
  • 11 CVPI with LED bar
  • 06 CVPI with older lightbar

Adding tiny differences with each vehicle adds a nice touch that gives each vehicle its own unique 'identity'. It also helps with realism.

Thanks for the Advice, This is a base on Boston, so the police has a very wide range of units, for police. I will look into what I can do, Maybe not have 2 of the same thing?

You can try doing subtle things. Not just with the model but even with textures, lights, sirens, vehicle speeds.

Lets start with an example of 2 identical CVPI's. You can give one of them has bars over the rear window, while the other one does not.

You can also do some interesting things like giving one unit a rambar, but with no ELS on it. The other one will have ELS on it. You can also give one mirror ELS, the other none. Another aspect is antennas, giving one an older type for example. One has the long antenna, another has the 'round' embedded one. Spotlights as well can be changed up. Some units have two, some have one, some have none. Keep it within reason though. 4 of them have spotlights, one does not.

If you cant edit/modify models, you can resort to using editor work. One CVPI for example has a certain light pattern, the second one has another. Note that it wont be feasable making 5 different light patterns for each vehicle. Instead, try to divide it. 3 have this pattern, 2 have another.

On the siren aspect, you can mix it up. Give those 3 cruisers a FS SmartSiren for ex, the others get an older FS siren.
