One of the most extensive total conversion mods for GTA IV, LCPDFR – Liberty City Police Department First Response – is making its way to GTA V. LCPDFR (quite a mouthful) takes the basic concept of the GTA series and turns it upside down. Instead of playing as criminals, breaking the law at every turn, in LCPDFR, we seek to uphold the law.
Turning the player into a policeman, and giving them missions such as arresting criminals or chasing down escapees, LCPDFR put an absolutely new spin on GTA. It added features such as the ability to detain, arrest and search any other character in-game, as well as pulling over any vehicle and responding to 911 calls. Now, players can enjoy these new features in GTA V as well!
We’re delighted to announce the first public release of the LSPD First Response modification for Grand Theft Auto V on PC.
Implementing a basic framework for enforcing the law in San Andreas, LSPDFR includes a number of features such as arresting suspects, pulling over vehicles, full character and vehicle selection, basic callouts and hot pursuits. Also included in LSPDFR are a variety of police backup options, an interaction menu and various other features. Be sure to study carefully the User Documentation provided with the modification, which explains the features LSPDFR offers.
LSPDFR (that one letter makes all the difference) takes the police action to Los Santos. The 0.1 version is the first public release of the mod, and this does show. While many fans of the GTA IV mod are praising LSPDFR for its unique range of features and the way it freshens up the game, but the mod is unfortunately plagued by bugs and crashes. Worry not however, as the team is hard at work to stabilize the mod, so you can all enjoy the fulfillment of your CSI: Los Santos fantasies without interruption!
