good idea to making an extra thread i think. Some interesting ideas there too.
Some requests you made are very specific and very special, though. On the other hand i assume they need pretty deep investigation.
Maybe think of something more general. Think of something that will improve the unmodded default game.
Anyways, here is my "wish list":
- more traffic on the road
-> with the ghost files we can already have 16 cars and its great; why dont make it like that by default?
- remove AI restrictions
-> enable U-turns for AI cops in tunnels, remove the (very) slow driving routine of opponents at night...
- Improve physics; i know i know right, it wont be like on the PSX but...
-> at least make e.g. the handbrake behave... well ... like a handbrake
-> also, with weather turned on cars behave much better and slide in corners ...
maybe its possible to work something out from there for "sunny day" races
- removal of the red "pursuit recticle", that shows onto locked suspects (at least optionally)
-> for screenshots etc.
- New Netcode for Internet/LAN
-> Sync Traffic/Police, increase tick-rate for better collision detection (huge task for sure)
Well, these are my "dreams" and Santa is coming soon... so who knows
PS: Using different police liveries on the same track slot can also be realised using the NFS Mixer. Create two seperate folders of the same car and use different TGA's. Then you could simply load a Car/Carlist with Norwegian police for example, when the respective track is installed.
