Suggestion explained in one paragraph: Police Officers who are Level 40 and above will receive access to a new panel called /elights (emergency lights for short). This fun and exciting feature will allow you to turn any of your personal vehicles into an undercover police vehicle. How is this achievable, you may ask? Let me tell you. MTA has an internal resource called Siren Editor, that when added to your server you are able to access it through a certain key. From there you can choose a number of lights, color, pattern and even to enable or disable siren sounds.


Additional details that are necessary for the suggestion:
Since this is in MTA internally, I don't think a download link is required. You can try it yourself.

- However, this script would need adjustments from a skilled developer, since the color picker is not functional and any emergency light edits you have made to your specific personal car should save even after despawn. Preferably, an RGB color picker would be perfect.

 - Preview of the many, many possibilities with this amazing script:

So now you may ask, why only level 40 and above? Because I want this to be a symbol of skill and dedication towards the law side. It means that when a criminal spots a custom emergency lighted car, they should be prepared to face skilled law enforcers.

This suggestion is worth the time developing because: I want the law side to have something to look for when leveling as a police officer. Currently the level system brings nothing fun or exciting and only gives a small payment boost to your arrests.

I actually like it. It's very unique for cops that reached level 40 as a cop. Other players like able to know if the cop who's coming is high level / skilled or not. Also Level 40+ cops do their best to reach that level so this is like the Achievement when they reach the level.

Wish we could turn back time to the gold DOPE days

This would be cool to have in CIT. I especially liked the idea of only +L40 police officers being able to use this, so levelling would bring something more and that only police officers who are "loyal" to law side could use this feature.

I'm voting Positive on this. It's always good to see new things that doesn't affect in a huge way the gameplay, specially because it could motivate law units to work hard and with dedication towards the law side in order to achieve this.

I agree with this. When you level up in Cop job you don't get a promotion reward like civilians. This would be a great addition to L40 cops.
And I also like the idea because it would be so RPish. It would help cops be undercover and I guess we could use it for RP/Spying (when there is a riot etc..)
Upvoted.

Why not make it for level 50 as it is the highest level?

I think redfire is right , L50 the highest level and cops will work hard to get L50 to get this feature and they will patrol a lot to get L50 , I am with Redfire.

I am voting Positive, that will help law side to show more realistic part. I think this ability should be given to officers with level 40 and above since these officers literally proofed themselves contributing to the law side and this is a feature they deserve.

I agree on this idea "Positive vote", but should be for level 45+ and would be awesome to be given this cool feature after such hard work.
This idea can even be used it Trainings, etc gives a bit more RP feeling as well. Other police officers or criminals can see if they're a skilled cop coming by the lights.

Also, should have a save function, so when I respawn my car they siren, color etc will be saved.

If you're L40-50 I take it as that person is a skilled cop.

It should be for everyone, no limits. Negative!
Otherwise if it's for every officer then I will be positive.

As stated previously, moderators are to mention everyone who replied to the accepted suggestion along with the names in the mention list, whether they support the idea or not so suggestions will receive more attention once they're on the development board rather than letting them drift off and not get the attention they once had.
