'Realistic NYPD Mod' aims to bring more realism by providing a set of authentic assets for the police department, supporting elements, in both 1978 and 2006 eras. Artistic liberties have been taken to overcome some issues but the principle is to stay as true to the real thing as possible.

List of features that are in the current build:
  • completely revamped textures for all 1978 patrolmen
  • adjusted tone of powder blue for uniforms, should be more accurate
  • added and tweaked details such as more accurate placement of pockets, citation bars, correct citations, color of nametag, leather holsters for some peds, buttons
  • new more accurate hat, also helmets where applicable (motorcycle cop)
  • new ESU (Emergency Service Unit) texture for the '78 SWAT ped
  • re-textured all used Security peds to look like cops; used an unused higher resolution version of the jacketed guard (was 256x256 previously, is now 512x512 like most peds)
  • re-textured both Prison Bus and Van to be more period accurate to known references
  • re-textured the SWAT van to be just NYPD due to its multi-purpose use (also used in 2006
  • slight improvements to the previously used texture for Zartex
  • Included my old re-textures for all '06 cops, as well as SWAT (re-textured to ESU), for the first time in official capacity as part of the mod.
  • Revamped my old M700 (default cop car) texture to be more accurate.

Many thanks! (Y)

Good news! The mod was approved and can now be found in the downloads section or alternatively below here.
(Nevermind using the downloads section. The download for my mod is broken as of now. Use the Dropbox link provided instead.)

As for future plans, right now I'm working on correctional officers & transit police to replace the security guards.

I'm not sure if you came to notice, but it's for Driver Parallel Lines, not Driver 1. Sorry!

Doesnt work for me. Police cars are displayed with the original textures. I choose the game's exe and then the .tpf file, so I'm not pretty sure what I'm missing..

While there's no tutorial (I don't think?), it's done simply with Antilli, tool by Fireboyd78/Mark Anthony. You open a file such as the ones containing peds, or vehicles, and find the assets of which textures you want to edit, or anything else you'd want to do. Once done, save the package as is or save it as a new one.

Some of the latest versions of Antilli have been uploaded into the DriverMadness Discord, for they've been purged on Appveyor. You'll have to contact him about that or just fetch it from the Discord.

I've thrown around the idea of updating other emergency vehicles as well, like the ones you mentioned, maybe even others. I have not settled on doing so yet. A resounding maybe depending on how creative energy goes.

No problem. Personally I'd recommend the Discord as even some dev versions were uploaded, and so far they've worked flawelessly + you get a pretty good way to seek out support too. Whatever you'll choose to do, good luck!
