Hi there, I've searched, it has come up with only 2 topics, both unrelated.

 

That being said, I have been wanting it for quite a while, and I've stated it in other topics as well.  I know that there are a few people who agree with me that the engine sounds for the Vegas needs a little work.  Sure, you may argue that the Vegas has a crap ton of kits already, or that it's sounds have already been changed once. I know there are cars more deserving of kits at this point.  

 

Anyway, my point is that the sound effects for this car right now are, well, not very good.  Some people like it and I understand that completely, though I'm not suggesting that they remove the current sounds entirely.  What I am suggesting however is that RP begins work (if they haven't already) on a Vegas audio kit.  It is one of the few top tier cars without one and I think it could benefit it greatly.  The main problem I have with the current set of sounds the Vegas has is that it sounds sick, like it isn't running properly.  I just want something that sounds more powerful.

 

Now, the kind of things that I would like for the kit to include would be:

 

-The ability to choose between a type of engine sound   (Current, Original, 440 Big Block, 350 Small Block)

-Turbo sounds   (You really could just recycle turbo sounds from other kits and I doubt anyone would care)

-Transmission sounds

-Exhaust sounds

-Dump Valves   (Could also be recycled from other kits)

-Amps, speakers, etc.

 

I know that you guys have more important things to worry about but with the Waragi kit coming out soon, I can see that you're still willing to make kits (and I'm not against that).  I just figured, if you go to the right place, one day of field recording could get you all the new engine sounds you need, possibly even for free as long as you already have the needed equipment.

 

Also would probably be a pretty good seller on Armas ;P

 

Here's some examples of what I'd like out of the engine sounds.

Could we also get this same treatment for the poor cisco too please ??

And what about the fresno ??? The fresno gets no love and would cool as hell it we could mod it like the others !!
Imagine the convertible fresno !! with side pipes, and wire wheels and a blower sticking out of the hood !!

Some of the coolest cars in APB are overlooked imho .

I love the idea you have with the vegas, don't get me wrong, but the other cars haven't even received half the love that the vegas has got .

Even the Flagship, the poor Jericho, has taken a backseat to the Vegas !!!
Wheres the 4x4 Jericho ??
Exactly ..

The Vegas has been shown too much love imho, its time for the other cars to get some attention .

I agree, the Fresno and Cisco both need love too. The Cisco needs a ton of work now that I think about it. Its way too light to justify how slow it is. Handling is just about perfect, but over all the Cisco is still kinda crappy for such a nice looking car.  The Fresno needs more kits too. Convertible Fresno would be nice but I don't think they can do that with how hit boxes are set up.  Side pipes absolutely, Big hood scoop for sure. The fastline kit is nice... but that is the ONLY extra kit for that car.  4x4 Jericho? Where the hell did that come from? Not being mean, just wondering.  I don't think the Jericho would work too well as a 4x4 since it flips easy enough already and it being 4x4 would require lifting it a bit.  Not sure what you meant by "Flagship".  Thanks for the feedback!

well, before the 4x4 vegas, and before the vehicles were "cross factioned" ( something I cant stand btw ) there were 2 cars .
The Jericho ( enforcer )
The Rapier ( Crims )
That was it !

The Vegas, the Cisco, were both available to both sides, but lacked any kits to speak of .

So back then, the "J" was the uber omfggottohaveititsofastdabestestever car out there and it stood alone, which is why I call it the flagship, because it used to be .
Now the 4x4 vegas is everywhere and the rapier and Jericho are both x factioned , so its a bit different then along time when I started playing this game .

But ... this whole time, the poor cisco and the frenso have received little to no love from RP , and imho, its time to give them some attention !!!

*lots of words*

Yeah I remember back before the best factioned cars were cross factioned, as a crim I always wanted a Jericho and I was really happy with the Nightrider kit that made it available to crims. Now I'm jealous of the pursuit special kit XD   Well, the hood anyway... Really want that hood... Anywhosel, I threw this idea out there because I've been saying it for a long time in other threads and stuff but I don't think it has ever gotten it's own suggestion topic.  And also it would not be much work, as I said in the op, if you go to the right place, and have the equipment already you could probably get all the field recording you need for free in one day.  I'd let them record my car's engine sounds for free (once it's put together anyway), Hell I'd record it for them if they gave me descriptions of each audio file that they need. I have a studio quality mic that I've used to record ATV engine sounds before.

 

 I think the development of this game needs more community involvement, RP just seems to be afraid to get us involved (understandably), like they may be overwhelmed in content to sift through or they may think that some legal problem may arise. Who knows, it may be G1 keeping them from letting us help.  THQ did that to Volition with the Saints Row series, No modding allowed, no community involvement other than support whatsoever. I'm not here to bash G1, just saying they may have something to do with RP not letting the community aid development.  Sorry for the wall of text :D

I'm gonna necro this now that G1 seems to be working more with car stuffs.  The Growl has shown that they can change the engine sound completely with the exhaust audio parts and it doesn't just modify the base sound.  Vegas still sounds like poo :(

 

Also adding videos to op.

Said this before a year or two ago.

 

Universal kits that can be applied to every car. Simple and subtle but noticeable.

A universal set of turbos, dumps and other audio changing things. Maybe exhaust sounds as well. (some EQ tweaks could accomplish this with little work)

Soft top versions of some cars. (some lore as to why you can't shoot people riding in the car. maybe a "pope bubble")

sepereate everything. Spoilers AND boots. Hoods AND intakes. Roof's AND Scoops. Bumpers AND Exhausts.

 

More advanced stuff I'd pay for:

suspension mods - lowering/raising. (I want a proper jacked up T25) Camber settings

Different styles of tires. Some fat chunky off road tires on a Vegas would look ballin.

Window tints.

Underglows/coloured headlights (need that dynamic lighting with the mythical engine upgrade)

"Advanced" paints - matt, chrome(proper chrome), rust overlay. Able to use different paints on different parts of cars (metallic hood, gloss everywhere else)

also higher resolutions for decals and symbols >.<

 

Other stuff:

selections of exhaust tips - chrome, titanium, big bore, shotgun...

Those little flashy LED's the Japanese seem to love and stick in ever vent, hole and flat surface.

Winches? because effing lol!

hydrolic systems. Because... ERK SPISHHHHHH.

replace individual windows with blank panels that house huge speakers

Remove certain body parts for those "rat" looks

"dyeable" tire smoke. Saw some back in 2005 I think where they put bits of metal and coloured which craft in the tire so they'd spark and make orange smoke.

I'd pay for that. I love that car.

Thats your opinion. You sounds like an idiot, who knows only shotgun. Coward, nothing else.

+1 for you.  There's a lot of great ideas in there.  I especially like the body kits that fit every car, soft tops and rust overlays.  The suspension tweaking would be great too.  I'd love to take the hood of my Vegas too :3    The removable body parts seems like the easiest suggestion to make happen in there.

Yeah but removeable parts means you gotta texture the insides. I'm sure most people would be happy with a simple flat texture with a bit of chassis weld lines and what not, but yeah. I'd also point towards Matt paint being the easiest as the a few cars already have matt lightmaps(one of the maps, I'm not a designer and know gosh darn all about modelling programs) and what have you.

 

I've seen a screen shot of the code/UI for changing the suspension settings. It's massively detailed, like Grand Turismo level of tweakability, or it was back in t' day. I doubt it'll ever be as realistic as the racing sims but for a 'simple' tpsmmo, its overkill. It's very possible to do a raiser kit and make the cars stance similar to that of the cars from Mad Max, but then again, only the wheels are programmed to move, all the drivetrain and suspension parts are just fixed blocks :( so that's another few days/weeks work to build, animate and texture the spings, shocks, driveshafts, diffs and all that.

 

One can dream. =)

 

-EDIT TO THE MAX-

Just had a thought as I was editing my IO GROWL, Why can't we get a proper 360 degrees orbital camera and the ability to use the "wrap" function for decals that we get with tattoo's and clothing?

I like the idea, but muscle cars should have supercharger whine and not turbo sound.

Idk if it still is like this but for some reason Vegas used to have two different sounds. When you drive your own car you hear the normal sound but when you listen to someone else drive from outside or passenger seat, it was different sound with supercharger whine.

Yeah I know what you mean,  I'm assuming that was a bug since it doesn't seem to happen anymore.  It was cool though.  Having the supercharger whine would be nice, I was just going for what was easiest to possibly increase our chances of getting it :P

No, please no, don't touch the Cisco, it's an amazing car already, I don't want it to be the next ISSR-B.

This is one of the things which are REALLY missing out in APB. Audio kits for the Vegas. Like for an exhaust, just a deeper, more bass-full sound, higher rev or smth like that. That would be so sweet *-*

also, moirai,

 

but seriously, the vegas as the one most sued car still not having one is seriously strange.

some cars are so OP they don't get 4 slots ever.
