Crime and Police Rebalance & Enhancement v1.402


The original police fix mod!

This mod is no longer maintained and I will no longer add new features. I will try to keep it updated if needed for Rockstar patches when I find the time.

I have now released an update purely for compatibility with the latest version of GTA V for those who prefer this over RDE / GTA Realism.

Checkout Realism Dispatch Enhanced for something even better! Most of CPRE has been merged in and improved in this mod.

I'm sure everyone who has played GTA V has realized how broken and anti-fun the police can be. This is a mod that attempts to solve all the problems with them while going a little further and enhancing their spawns, the crime and witness system and lots more.

-Most crimes (or all of them if you're using the optional file) will now require people to have to call the police on you. This means stealth is now possible, stop them dialing 9-11 and you can kill without worry.
-Stealth in general has been improved. Silencers will reduce the chance of people hearing your gunshots, people won't have super human hearing and sight and stealth melee kills are very under the radar.
-Overhauled all enemy AI to be less accurate and skillful. Gunfights will be a lot more enjoyable without being too easy, enemy accuracy scales with the type of NPC. GANG/POLICE/SWAT/ARMY and whether they are in a helicopter, rolling, running or if their target is driving at high speed.
-One star means one police patrol. It works that way in real life, they don't go all in at the drop of a phone call.
-Female police, lots of new enforcement spawns including the police bike, buffalo, intruder, stanier, army mesas, barracks and crusaders, cargobob, savage and many many more.
-Realistic and enhanced cop responses at each level with the progression [POLICE - POLICE - SWAT - FIB - ARMY]
-No Army version with FIB at 5 stars [POLICE - POLICE - POLICE - SWAT - FIB]
-Increases time at wanted levels. Takes more cop killings to go up a star. (Vanilla threshold version also available)
-Reduces the time it takes to lose cops when hiding (Vanilla time version also available)
-Stops animals reporting crime (Serious)
-Better police weapon loadouts thanks to Yard1
-Police helicopters will now take two minutes (at least) to respawn after being destroyed
-Police will no longer know where you are automatically and will only move towards your last seen position. All helicopters and the army will move towards where you are still but are not magicians, you can still hide.
-NPCs will take longer to dial 9-11
-Police will prefer to take cover and flank rather than rush at you. SWAT, Army and Gang members will still rush your position.
-Hidden evasion timers will now kick in even if the players vehicle is not moving.
-Lots of optional files and options including: Police on street, less aggressive npcs, vanilla thresholds and evasion timers and more.
-Police now require direct line of sight and will prefer to spawn near your last known position
-Tweaks to vehicle speeds of enforcement to balance the above changes

1. Navigate to "Grand Theft Auto V\update\update.rpf" Make a backup of this whole file somewhere safe.
2. Using OpenIV, enable Edit Mode navigate to "update.rpf\common\data\ai" and drag and drop combatbehaviour.meta, pedaccuracy.meta, witnessinformation.meta, loadouts.meta, crimes.meta and crimeinformation.meta
3. Using OpenIV, navigate to "update.rpf\common\data\" Drag and drop dispatch.meta, navcapabilities.meta & pedperception.meta
4. Using OpenIV, navigate to "update.rpf\common\data\levels\gta5\". Drag and drop vehicles.meta
5. Using OpenIV, naviagate to "update.rpf\x64\data\tune" Drag and drop dispatchtuning.ymt, wantedtuning.ymt and generaltasks.ymt
6. See the readmes in some of the optional file folders for information on installing those.

If you get "Corrupt Game Data" error on startup. Ensure you have OpenIV.asi installed, it will prompt you to install it when you enable edit mode. If you have it and still have the error, restore your backup of update.rpf and try again.

If the mod isn't working. Check that everything is installed properly. Modified files will be shown as just "Compressed;" while untouched vanilla files are shown as "Compressed;Encrypted". Vanilla files that are restored from backups will be shown as just "Compressed;" however.

If you're crashing, you have done something wrong. Restore your backup of update.rpf and try again.

The files are not already present in update.rpf??!!!! Yes this is true, they are in other rpf archives. But guess what, update.rpf overwrites them and having them in this file is needed. Just add the new files.

There's no tune folder!!??! You're in the wrong spot. It's a different data folder. Update.rpf\x64\data\tune. Its' there.

Will it ruin my saves? Nope

Why am I getting a wanted level in some missions for just shooting a weapon? A: I have no fucking idea, ask Rockstar. For some reason enabling phone calls for crimes does this, so I can't fix it... Have a trainer installed and turn on never wanted temporarily to get around this.

Can I go online without being banned? Nope.jpg

Overwrite the original files with your choice if it's a replacement/alternative version. See the readme.txt in the folders of files that need explanation

Default version, found when you first open the file. It has Army, tweaked times at wanted levels, tweaked evasion times, proper stealth, crime and witness systems etc.

No Army Version: Same as standard version but replaces Army with the FIB at 5 stars, Swat is moved to 4 star. Overwrite the main files with this.

Vanilla Evasion Times: Same as standard version but with the vanilla hidden evasion times.

Vanilla Wanted Thresholds: Same as standard version but wit the vanilla wanted thresholds (times per wanted level by chaos/cop killing etc).

Less Aggressive People & Police: This file will allow you to stand near people for 20-35 seconds depending if you're in front of them or behind
Police will also have a 25% chance of not being bothered by you and you stand a tiny bit closer to them. Loitering in vehicle will now take 30-35 seconds to get a reaction from police.

Police on the streets: Adds police driving around an on foot. You have a higher chance of seeing them in poor and gang occupied neighborhoods. Make sure you increase the vehicle variety beyond max in your INI file.

Homeless and Tramps won't have phones: This file should remove phones from homeless people and tramps, preventing them from dialing the police on you. It needs testing because I had to do some guessing with this one.

Some users have reported issues with police being alerted when you fire in the Civil Border Patrol S&F Mission. I'm not Rockstar, so I can't fix it sadly.

You can still complete the mission by chasing them, but you won't be able to get gold. If you use a trainer, you can disable wanted levels temporarily to get around this.

-Conflicts with Refined Weapons and Gunplay's AI Changes "combatbehaviour.meta". Otherwise works fine, I recommend using mine over his with this mod due to it being balanced around my changes.
-Works with PlasticTangerines Tank and Lazer spawning ASIs. If you his dispatch file you will just have regular police spawning up until 5 stars and not have the evasion timer tweaks etc.
-Better Police Spawning, Army at 5 stars dispatch file.
-Anything that edits the AI skills, loadouts, crime and witness information.
-Cops on the beat mod. I have my own popcycle.dat included. Mine has less police. Use his if you want more police on the street and patrols in the country.
-Better Gang Loadouts. Use the compatible version, located with the download.
-Conflicts with GTA Realism/RDE police changes. If you prefer CPRE over the police changes in RDE/Realism I recommend using the popcycle from Realism and all other files except the conflicting files for a nice blend between the two.

    Works fine here. Sounds like conflicting files in your installation.
    Too bad support stopped in favor of RDE (majority of players prefer this mod).

    @Jabel I don't understand either why the author ceased development of this mod 'cause most of the players prefer this mod, not RDE. 1258 likes against 828. Huge advantage.

    Allright, I've been using this mod for quite a long time, but now i wanted to uninstall it. I just removed my update.rpf and replaced it by the backup, "modless" version. But then, army still spawns everywhere at 5 stars, while using the original update.rpf. Did i screw anything up ? Can anybody help me pls ?

    September 22, 2016
  • Bb932d gta

    @TheSigui It's pretty strange but there is a 'Backups' folder in the archive with original files. Just copy the 'dispatch.meta' file to 'update.rpf\common\data'. It should fix the problem.

    I really want to get this working but so far, after following the instructions exactly, I can't seem to get it to work. I've got scripthook in, openIV asi installed like it said. I put everything in the correct location. I'm not sure what is wrong. I'm on the new update for Biker DLC and I'm feeling like that has something to do with it but I'm new to modding and would like some advice, please. Thanks.
