Different liveries to the current civilian ground units..


Recommended Posts

Rather than ask for new civilian ground assets, could we have different colours/liveries added to the current ones ie the big red truck, the silver car and perhaps add an ambulance/police livery to the land rover?

 

Just by changing the colour on the truck or giving us different colours for the silver car adds a huge amount of civilian depth to helicopter missions.

 

Adding an ambulance/police (or even an all black -swat/special forces etc) livery to the land rover opens up a world of alternative possibilities when approaching helicopter missions.

 

Ie 'heist/swat/police/news/air ambulance' missions could be created with these few small changes to liveries on current assets.

 

I've created these scenarios using the fire engine and the current land rover as an ambulance but without a police car they aren't that believable.

 

Thanks

Joe Rowe’s Civil Mod includes a police car I believe .. tomorrow I will take a look and confirm.

Big +1 to the OP's wish

 

This is low hanging fruit

 

 

Thanks for sharing @Rudel_chw, but even though mods often look/are great, they require manual actions, can cause issues in DCS (I know liveries usually don't) and if you create a mission using mods, anyone downloading it will also have to go through the "trouble" of finding and installing those mods.

(Personally, I've had too many annoying issues with mods, so I stopped using them all together)

Yeah it does- Its got pretty good looking ambulances too.
But personal experience tells me if a new update comes out which affects the mod- people will come to me to fix it and i dont want the maintainance, its the reason i stay clear of scripts too.

@sirrah point is spot on.

I know the guys are busy, and expecting new assets is a bit unachievable, but even just a couple new police/ambulance liveries would dynamically change the scenarios to new missions, and finally allow me to upload a decent 'Las Vegas Heist' mission ive been working on, that just doesnt work without a police car.

Easiest solution is to add the liveries to the land rover.

This is all the civilian assets we have (some military too mixed in)

Rather than ask for more, cant we just have more colours/liveries added to these? If we could get multiple colours for that silver car, it would mean i can add much more depth to helicopter missions that revolve around the civilian side.
At the moment ive a half made 'news crew' mission, and theres only so many times, you can 'film a silver car chase', then 'film a silver car crash', followed by 4 more missions revolving around a silver car etc.
Im not complaining with what we have, i just think that these changes would require the least amount of effort, and get the most out the game.

The red truck too.

Even if all we get is a black livery for the Land Rover, adds a huge dynamic to helicopter missions.

Who wouldnt want a special forces missions?

That would be a great addition.

And if it should be military, then just a red cross or a red crescent moon on a white background.

 

Transporting the injured and there is an ambulance at arrival, that would be great. Or attack a convoy, but in no case hit the ambulance ... that would also be a scenario.

If the existing tent is then provided with the cross and / or crescent, then we already have a complete set.

 

I'm not a programmer, but it should be easy to do. Copy Land Rover / red cross on it / rename = done.

Mods are great, but if one doesn't join in, the whole group can't play.
