Hello fans of EM4 and 80s television! For the past few months I had been working on a private 80s modification based on the TV show Hill Street Blues. Originally intended to be private, I decided to rework it and get all I need to make it a public mod. Stick around, updates coming soon.

Since the city in Hill Street Blues is never named, I took matters into my own hands. After consulting a few random name generators I came to the conclusion that this mod will take place in the fictional city of Malburn. Heres our rescue. Cab by  RD_Saarland & Rachammer. Rear by the Edgewater mod team. 20210313155133_1.thumb.jpg.ddf033b1b9363aee013775aee59edef7.jpg

I've been working on getting everything ported over right but theres still some work to do. 

I've been working on a HAZMAT truck replacement. I plan to recreate something like this It will probably use the same rear as the rescue because I'm lazy. image.jpeg.92327804b984daba1f76f025f289a22f.jpeg

 

Alternatively I might try for something like this http://www.firenews.org/mass/b/boston/rescues/BostonHazMat79.jpg

 

 

I'm going to upload a first version when I get all these units set up and ready. Afterwards I'll start working on a version with some better lighting and some station switches. Here are a few screenshots from the private version. Not everything pictured will make it into Version 1!

Heres an Update for everyone showcasing the ambulances that will be featured in the mod.

Lights will get a rework for v2, these are temporary. I did these lights a while back so don't expect to be "wow'd" by their quality.

Second update of the day! I've been working hard on the 3 remaining units of the Fire Department, 

First of all heres the Hazmat squad. I'll have to find some lights I like but after that we should be ready to roll.

And heres all the other fire units. Two engines and the rescue. When I finish up with the HAZMAT, All I have to do is put the ladder truck and battalion cars ingame, and V1 should be set for release

We're almost at the end folks, Battalion chief vehicle is almost finished. Just needs some lights done. I had seen nobody use the S&W lightbar so far so I decided to plop it on on. I wasn't sure how it was going to come out but I'm happy with it.

One down, only two more units before I can let you all get your hands on this.

If you're wondering why my game looks a bit more colorful, I've been playing around with reshader recently

Heres a quick update. 

Firstly, I redid the colors on the county ambulances. They'll now be orange instead of of red so you can tell them better from the fire department.

Why orange? well image.jpeg.ef3712cb176ae86b1c90bb8dc047fb23.jpeg

 

anyway here they are, let me know what you think

I've got some very good news for you all. Pending a few permissions and releases, and the two units that need lights, the mod is pretty much ready to go! I'll probably be putting out a 5-10 minute gameplay video later on this week to showcase everything when it's in a state I'm happy with. For now, heres a preview of the Ladder. Same basic concept as the ladder from Edgewater, just without that full light bar and instead two separate ones. When it comes to attaching the front to the rear, it's far from perfect, but it'll do for now.

This is amazing. It feels like you did a % speedrun of a mod. (I know you did work before you posted, but still impressive)  It looks really good! You bet that I'll be sitting on this forum refreshing until it releases. Seriously, Nice work! (Also that ladder truck looks really good. I would 100% put that on my top 5 ladder trucks for em4 list)

i told myself I wouldn't edit the people....

I told myself that and I lied. 

Out of pure boredom I took some cops from the Miami Mod and slapped a skin on. According to the Miami Mod readme i should be allowed to use them in my mod. If not, I look forward to the whole community correcting me as we tend to do.

Credits: EmC_Unit for the model and the hard parts of the skin.

I may end up messing around a bit more and getting some nicer looking SWAT peds to match the show, but we'll see how much effort I care to put in.

will have the mod parking script?

 

No, that's Itchboy's script and I doubt he'd let me use it for a LA submod like this

Is that a Dodge Monaco or a Plymouth Fury I spot in the 3rd photo or do my eyes deceive me? Also really great progress on the mod really fast, I applaud your speed and quality.

Rhis's plymouth fury, and to answer everyones comments about speed, I actually started this as a private project months ago, most of my time since posting has been porting things over and some light housekeeping and cleaning up some skins and lights.

something new for y'all tonight.

Decided we needed a bomb squad, and since I didn't have a base, I decided to reuse Firequi's chevy ambulance and slapped on Itch's Code3 lightbar. 

 

let me know what y'all think, I might end up reusing it for a SWAT van in the future. Big update coming soon, stay posted.
