Custom Emergency Lights for Lv. 40+ Police Officers
« on: 07 11, 2017, 11:28:03 pm »
As previously discussed at the law features board: here

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 sirenEdit, that when added to your server you are able to access it through a certain key (In my case it's 0). From there you can choose a number of lights, color, pattern and even to enable or disable siren sounds. Panel preview: here

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. Default lights script activation key is H.
However, if one is needed there is an alternative siren editor that I found: here

- However, this script (MTA's) 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 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 forward to when leveling as a police officer. Currently the level system brings nothing fun or exciting.

+89 votes. Added for level 20+ because it took so much time to make that it shouldn't be limited to such a small portion of players.
