  1. I've got something tonight I'm very excited and proud to show you all. My very own whelen FastTrax rear module for Itchboy's CVPI. One of the fugliest lightbars of the late 90s is perfect for this project. Lighting demo to come at a later date- I'm still playing with the timing and patterns.
  2. I look forward to your return. You successfully made me watch Batman again and for that I appreciate you and this project
  3. At the risk of getting too off topic - I'm so happy someone else remembers Emergency on the DS. Everyone I speak to swears it doesn't exist, even though I know I'm not crazy cuz I still got the cartridge! Honestly it was a super good game - original missions in it's own right and not really a full port.
  4. I still remember the Emergency 2 port they put on phones way back in the day. Now THAT was an emergency game worth playing on the road.
  5. I didn't play any EMHQ because it well...it was boring. I've heard tho that the screenshots are blatantly reusing EMHQ assets. All I can say is ":(" I seriously wanted EM6 to be better.
  6. Have you updated your mod recently? I haven't had this crash since after the old LAFD Patrol was added.
  7. This error comes from the LA mod. I do not know how to fix it, nor is it a priority of mine to fix it. I personally have never used the feature, so it is not on my radar. I woke up this morning and suddenly remembered I forgot to share anything I've done. oops. I'll start posting the backlog. Stating with these edits of Itchboy's Ecto-One from a few years ago. Itchboy is to be credited here for everything except the skin and the small edits. In the future, I hope to show off more content made specifically for this mod
  8. Well I'll be goddamned someone's gone and actually done it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3sIbSV7H5M I wanted this mod to be my little "intro to modeling". It turned out to be way more complex and take me another two years to learn. Yikes. Truth be told I also wanted this to be a little bit of a "middle finger" to the Weldforshire guy after he got rude in the thread I linked back in the main post. Oh well. I'm glad I grew out of that pettiness. Sorry for bumping the old thread but...it's mine so
  9. As a certifiable Sutphen lover, I like what I see
  10. Over the last year, I've seen a phrase pop up constantly in discords, comment sections, and forums all over the community. The exact wording changes but the common theme is always the same. "Private mods killed this community." I'm sure everyone is guilty of daydreaming over City of Angels or River Falls at least once, it's only natural. But those mods aren't private because of some ill will of the creators, nor are they harming this community. No, dear friends, the fault is ours. I am a relative newcomer to Emergency 4's community. While I have been playing the game in one form or another since 2011, I only took an active role in the community late in 2017. Even so, over the last five years, and after reading several old threads and speaking with some real "OGs" of the community, it's pretty obvious that we only have ourselves to blame for the current state of things. MikeyPI made a pretty well structured post in 2015 about why he and Hoppah were deciding to hold development of the NYC mod for the time being. I'll post it below, as it's worth reading. I'll also post a link to the thread if anyone else in interested in scrolling through a seven year old locked thread. MikeyPI's post from 16 June 2015 (spoiler tagged for the sake of formatting) and here is the thread if you want to read further (highly recommended) By my own interpretation, Mikey wanted to wait until the state of the community improved to release his work into our lives. The state of the community never did improve, sadly, so NYC V2 stays forgotten on a hard drive somewhere, probably forever. Nowadays, all I see is people complaining about this decision. Hardly a new thing, even in the original thread some people whined and moaned over the dev's rightful decision, but what was once balanced with some messages of sympathy is now just the voices of the masses crying because they couldn't play with a new toy. Thats the root of it, in my opinion. We've become so obsessed with something new. Everyone wants a new mod so they can play something just a little different, but that desire for more has given way to a monster - theft. Now is this the "legal definition" of theft? No, probably not. I've had it argued to me that no civil or legal action can be taken for anything in this game because of all sorts of varying reasons. But my rant here has nothing to do with legality, but about respect. Itchboy is the principal victim of this nowadays - look no further than his parking script to see what I mean. All he can do is ask politely for us to refrain from using an asset he placed his effort and time into creating, and a portion of the community has walked all over that. All his scripts, models, etc. Same goes for EmC_Unit. You need not look too far to see an edit of the Miami mod out there, even though it is forbidden in the terms of service. I'll take a moment now to acknowledge that not everyone is guilty of being a vulture for other's content, this site in particular seems to have no issue for it whatsoever, and for that I am thankful. I'm sure that what I've been referring to this whole time is simply a vocal minority, their actions speaking loud thanks to their discords and other websites that function as an echo chamber. But the problem is certainly widespread enough to be of concern to all of us. Why should Itchboy, EmC_Unit, THVFD, or anyone else for that matter release anything anymore? None of us want that, but it's near impossible to blame these long time developers from wanting to withhold some of their work from us. It's not about greed on the dev's part. Itchboy alone publishes dozens upon dozens of free to use models for us if we really aspire to create our own mods. He's also present on the forums to answer questions, even the most ammeter ones. (He helped me greatly in my early days of modding.) The problem is greed for us. We become so blinded by seeing things that are "new" and we forget that these developers are owed respect of their boundaries. Their time and effort has gone into creating a product for the community, it is the absolute least we can do to be able to recognize that we shouldn't view all these projects as a depot for spare parts. But we have been treating these projects as depots for spare parts. That is what is killing this community. Not private mods, but our own greed. TL;DR - If we weren't so greedy about assets, we would have no need for private mods.
  11. I realize, two months after the fact, that I have made a terrible typo that may have confused some people. Edgewater is in Michigan - just in case anybody was confused. Updates to come this weekend, stay tuned
  12. The tiller has been disabled in the mod as I was unhappy with the model I had used in the beta.
  13. 99% of "hazmat call not clearing" cases are from people who are forgetting to remove the forklift! For future reference, everybody, the forklift goes too!
  14. I'm away for the moment, but I've got some screenshots I'd like to share. Some of you with a keen eye may have already noticed, but if not, these screenshots will make it obvious. Edgewater is not officially in Michigan! Wanting to keep Edgewater's small, seaside city vibe, while also wanting to bring the community something new, and also my unbridled love for the mitten state, influenced this decision. Anyway, heres a Michigan staple, the somewhat standardized design of a Michigan Sheriff Cruiser. Itchboy's 2003 CVPI with ThinBlueLineKY's Whelen Centurion
  15. Tonight, dear friends, I share with you my updates to the Edgewater Police Department! For fans of the old "Colgate toothpaste" design, I have some bad news. I scrapped it! I decided I really wanted to embrace the police car styles of the early 2000s. I present to you two variations of Itchboy's Crown Victoria model, one with a 2003 styled grille and one with a 1998 styled grille. Both also have Cops' Whelen Edge 9000 strobe lightbar.
