Police Chase Overhaul





My take on the pursuit system in NFS Heat.

IMPORTANT FOR INSTALLATION
NOTE: In order to play this mod, you require the latest version of Frosty Editor. You can download it from this link:

After you finished downloading, simply open up the editor, select your needforspeedheat.exe file, then open up my fbproject file and last but not least, press launch to play the game with my mod activated.

FEATURES:
THE CARS
- The Ford Police Interceptor Utiilty and the Chevrolet Camaro have now been added to the car roster used by the cops during pursuits.
- All police cars have received new or edited skins. Regular cops are green and white while HSTF units are black and gray. HSTF Crown Vics & Dodge Chargers are faster compared to their PCPD counterparts.
- Killswitches are now equiped in Corvette Interceptor units as well instead of only Chargers, plus they lock onto you faster so watch yourself! Maybe that Killswitch Jammer will prove usefull for once.
- All police cars have been improved in performance, meaning they will keep up with you better, with Interceptors being designed to keep up with 400+ cars and are only limited by their own driving ability.

HEAT LEVELS
- Lower heat levels are easier then before while higher heat levels are harder. Each heat level gradually increases in difficulty as to prevent any unwanted difficulty spikes and take longer to increase.
- There now is a total of 6 levels of police heat and each of the five original heat levels is made up out of two stages, with the second stage being activated once the heat bar is halfway full.
- Patrolling cops have been removed since their driving AI sucks, as they crashed into everything and sometimes even into the player triggering a chase. Instead, once you have heat level 1 or higher PCPD Dode Chargers
& HSTF Ford Crown Victorias will start to appear on the streets looking for you. Regular PCPD Crown Vics can still be found parked at various spots during both day/nighttime at heat 0 so you can always trigger a chase.

OTHER CHANGES
- Hiding on top of certain spots such as the abandoned shopping mall or the containers on Port Murphy no longer works to lose the cops, you have to outrun them. Jumps are still your best friend, although at higher heat levels their usefullness is decreased.
- Rhinos have their 'rhino incoming' message and map blip removed, so keep your eyes and ears open.
- Instead of day/nighttime cops, both times feature regular police on patrol and low heat levels while the High-Speed Task Force is summoned at higher heat levels to take over the pursuit from the patrol units.
- Cops are on the same level of difficulty during both day and nighttime, only difference being the fact that heat resets during daytime and the different police chatter depending on the time of day.
- Cops have their vision cones increased in size, fines are now twice as expensive, cops take longer before they lose sight of you & police searches now take twice as long.
- Health bars are no longer visible above police cars, pure cosmetic change.
- Police barriers & spike strips no longer show on the radar.

BONUS: There are two versions of the mod which are practically the same. The version for people below REP 50 has only one difference and that is that heat level 6 is still displayed as 5, for the simple reason that it breaks the REP multiplier otherwise making it hard to level up. This change is purely cosmetic, the actual cop difficulty remains the same.

That's about all I can think of right now, any feedback or suggestions are always welcome.But above all, have fun with the mod!

A RUN DOWN OF THE HEAT LEVELS:
Also note that the .5 after some heats indicates that this heat level is made up out of 2 stages, with a starter stage and once your heat gets to the halfway point, a harder version of that heat level takes its place.In total, internsally, there are 12 heat levels, which includes heat 0, five heat levels with two stages each and heat level 6.

I wish the frostyeditor to be supported on any versions of the game like nfs payback which it work for crack(Update 3) and original versions(at the time, update 5).

Sounds like a good mod, only if that program has full support that doesn't need to enter encryption key anymore(something like that) and works on any versions(like equivalent with VltED or BINARY)
