Mimic me Traffic Stops


SCPD

Recommended Posts


Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website): MTA


Suggestion: If possible, add a "mimic me" function to get vehicles to pull over to the side of the road during a traffic stop. Like in LSPDFR.


Why should this be added?: So I don't have to write paperwork on a 20 car pileup when I pull someone over for speeding. Again if its possible.


Anything else you'd like to add?: Paperwork sucks.

I'm not exactly sure I understand your suggestion, but having the suspect pull to the right until off the road maybe? Although possible, would be a very complex and difficult script to come up with. Peds, trees, poles and such obstacles would also need to be considered. If you're on the freeway (Elevated) then it's not even possible to get off the road, would just have to pull as far right as possible I suppose. IRL, cops would likely have to instruct drivers to keep going until they were able to exit the freeway. Like I said though, complex, but not impossible


I think the best way to handle this problem is for the officer to use road blocks, simple cones. I've seen an officer doing just this once or twice and was "neatly" done. On the other hand, I also seen many more officers get struck by passing traffic and directed their anger by returning fire for example. Even if the vehicles were to pull to the side, the passing traffic would still act crazy because let's just face facts here, the AI is fairly stupid

Technically how it works in LSPDFR is if you drive to the left, the guy you pulled over will also drive to the left. If ya drive right, the guy drives right, etc. Hence the name "mimic me" mod. It is a feature that was introduced as a LSPDFR plugin in Albo's traffic policer for the exact same reason.


This video at 0:41 explains how. It might be easier to script than just having the actual AI to drive to the right when you initiate a traffic stop as you can control the guy you pulled over. But then again MTA has limitations so I don't know how easily or possible this will be scripted.




EDIT: Hmm it might actually be possible controlling NPC in vehicles  ???

It's possible and not even that hard to do, only issue would be that it'll be hard to avoid trolls that drive someone all the way over the game. With that being said, a mimic function is not going to be added. Pulling over to the sideline might be an option but that requires a lot of rewriting of the AI.
