Welcome To Los Santos!

He has had some previous law enforcement experience but not with a police service and dispatch experience with 2 different government organisations.

 

How Does GTA V Transform Into Los Santos For Good People?

Grand Theft Auto V is set in fictional Los Santos which is set in an unlawful environment. Thanks to various modifications and programs, GTA’s version of Los Santos can be heavily modified into LSPDFR (Los Santos Police Department First Response) or LSRD (Los Santos Rescue Division) so you can roleplay as members of various emergency services. There are two main sources that I use for modifications. There is a lot of information available at the main LSPDFR website including tutorials, forums and of course the various modifications to vehicles, scripts, plugins & environments. Another good source of game mods is GTA V Mods. This page will feature an extensive list of modifications and their sources. I did not build or create any of these mods – I merely installed them into GTA/LSPDFR. These mods are only available for the PC version of GTA V and not the console versions. There is an older version of LSPDFR for GTA IV – LCPDFR – based on Liberty City. Most mods are not interchangeable between LSPDFR & LSRD and Simulated Erk has different installations for each particular universe/environment.

 

There are now 5 different series of Simulated Erk videos using LSPDFR as well as an LSRD series.

 

  • Series 1 – Simulated Erk: LSPDFR – Original series
  • Series 2 – Simulated Erk: Los Santos Emergency
  • Series 3 – Simulated Erk: Los Santos Emergency (UK)
  • Series 4 – Simulated Erk: Los Santos Emergency Down Under
  • Series 5 – Simulated Erk: Los Santos NYC

 

 

 

Specifically, Erk’s version of Los Santos aimed to have an Australian feel in the first 2 series based his LSPDFR world on  his home state of New South Wales. In the third series, the focus moves and Los Santos becomes a version of London, England. There are various UK based mods that have been used to convert Los Santos into London & various US based mods to convert Los Santos into NYC. Series 4 aims to feature various Australian emergency services.

Erk’s Master Los Santos Emergency Mods List

This is a master list of featured mods that Erk uses during most LSPDFR videos. Links are subject to change due to updates therefore links will be to the relevant site and/or the creator’s website if known. This list is being updated regularly here. Other mods may appear on videos and will be referenced if possible on this main mod and/or episode mod list. Some vehicles may also appear in the background in episodes that are not listed here. There is a much longer list that features many more background vehicles and items. Note that any vehicles reskinned by Simulated Erk are for training & personal use only and not available for download elsewhere.

What Other LSPD Officers Should I Be Watching?

 

In one word – SQUIRREL! Actually, no. Although there are animals in LSPDFR, LSPDFR probably isn’t simulationery (is that even a word?) for Squirrel.

 

After watching Squirrel videos about other simulation games, I found Officer First Thirty Minutes. His videos was Erk’s introduction to LSPDFR/LCPDFR and the whole GTA universe as Erk had no interest in it before. The video below is First Thirty Minutes’ 400th Patrol! [First Thirty Minutes You Tube Channel]

 

From there, I found Jeff Favignano. His videos are highly recommended, especially the tutorial videos if you are going to install LSPDFR yourself (you can thank me later!). Jeff’s videos are that good that you can find a video of his on the front page of the official LSPDFR website. Cool, eh? [Jeff Favignano’s YouTube Channel]

 

After these videos, I found an Australian in the LSPDFR universe! This prompted Erk to decide to record Australian LSPDFR videos as well. Darkmyre has pre-recorded episodes however also tries to stream LSPDFR videos live on Friday afternoons (4pm-ish, Sydney time). He also creates plugins and scripts, especially those tailored for Australians. The video below is a recent Highway Patrol livestream – it is amazing how many people expect a shoutout or interaction during a pursuit! [Darkmyre’s YouTube Channel]

 

 

 

Albo1125 does a fantastic job with LSPDFR mods and the LSPDFR people should hire him at once! If you have one of his many plugins (see list above), be sure to check out the demonstrations of the mod on his channel. In addition, he does his own style of British patrols amongst others as well as live streams. Sierra 1, are you available to deal? The video below showcases Traffic Policer.

Los Santos Rescue Division

Los Santos Fire is a Simulated Erk series based on using Los Santos Rescue Division (LSRD). Apart from reskinning various vehicles and modifying some calls, Simulated Erk has not modified Los Santos Rescue Division. LSRD is not intended to be used with LSPDFR and there are not many modifications at present. LSRD is in early access and is currently not available as a free service unlike LSPDFR.
