The new Crown Vic is looking nice. Add more flashing lights, white alternating white lights on either side of rear license plate, red tail light alternating flashing, amber directional lightbar upper rear window if possible. Be careful to not show trademarked names like Ford etc. Change the logos and or blur/blank out. It's not easy. Keep up the great work!

Hopefully you can get the colored lighting to emit light in the night time settings. Having the lightbar flash is only part of it. Looking great so far. Might be the same process as having light emit from headlamps. just time the lighting flash and color number. Also, when lightbar is active, have the parking or headlamps alternate flash if possible
Whelen Liberty Light Bar

More Whelen sample video

Flash pattern for federal cars not pd but good example showing how much light emits from lightbar projecting outward. Having lightbar go on and off shows the colored light is turning on and off and not emitting light along with it.
Flash patterns
Solex Lightbar from code 3 more for european standards.
another example

These lights look great but should have that lens flare, high intensity lighting effects.
Is there a way for you to turn up the brightness or glow of the lamp when it is in the on position flashing? So when every time it flashes on, (the light will emit so bright or using glow effects) it will almost blur itself with a blinding light as seen in sample videos above. Hope these suggestions help. I've done some work in other mesh projects on other build games, but the coding can be different and harder for Arma. Wish you best of luck. Keep going! WE all want to see more.

Well, I'm liking the project, and will give you some pointers. First the good things.

It's nice that you take the time and effort into making this mod. I've been waiting for one :)
I'll be playing it a lot when it's released.
The basic shape of the crown vic is also nice.


# Crazydudeg47 : Hey max how about this vest for LAPD SWAT, it's their vest
http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=26617

No. It's not any more. That is the LAPD's old vest. To be precise it's the Tactical Solutions International Law Enforcement Officer vest with M.O.D. system (buttons and velcro). In short: TSI LEO MOD vest. It has been discontinued and phased out. TSI was acquired by a south-african company named Saunderson Security, and they still produce a version of the vest found here. However, the LAPD no longer uses it.
Currently the LAPD use the ProTech FAV Mk II vest in tactical black.

Here's a few pictures of mine:








In action:













# Breech99 : And if you do a new model of pd vehicle, don't forget the push bumpers!
Westin Push Bumpers

The LAPD rarely use push bumpers on their cars. And if they do, they use the GoRhino! push bar:
[img]http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/818152/fullsize/[/img]

A few pointers regarding the uniform. The LAPD does not have a patch on their arms. They only use rank insignia on their upper arms, and higher ranks have insignia on their forearms aswell:







Only traffic officers have a Traffic officer patch on their shoulders, like this (LAPD Captain, Traffic Officer):


Furthermore, officers rarely have their covers (hats) on when paroling.

Otherwise, this is the look:


I like the Beretta 92-ish gun. Too bad it's chrome in color, but I guess it's a work in progress?

Regarding the Crown Vic, like I said above, it's basically OK, but some details aren't. The lightbar to start with, looks like a Whelen Edge 9000 / Whelen Legacy mix. The LAPD's main supplyer is Federal Signal. Primarily they use the Federal Signal Arjent lightbar.

You've also written "Safety and Service" on the back of the vic. The back of an LAPD squad car does not have that motto there, especially since the LAPD's motto is "to protect and serve". The back of a real LAPD vic looks like this:



Front:


Also note the lack of those rear flashing lights you've added for some reason... there's no need for rear flashers on a police cruiser, especially a city cruiser, because the obstacles you're trying to pass are already behind you :)

So you've got a bit to go, but so far you're doing great. Let me know if I can help, even though it's been a long time since I last did a mod. I can always dig up info on the LAPD, which I have a lot of.

Aaaaah... memories...
