About This File

It's Los Santos... people get shot, people get run over, things catch fire... and it's usually all your fault. Eventually, you need to do something to keep nosy bystanders out of your business. Ever wished you could quickly close off a freeway so no cars can get by? Ever wanted to block off the scene of a dead body so that curious pedestrians couldn't tell who exactly shot them? Perhaps you just want to peacefully do some construction work, but oblivious drivers keep driving into your work zone. Or maybe you're fighting a fire, and need to stop rubberneckers from wandering into harm's way. 


No matter what you do in Los Santos, Police Tape is here to keep everyone else out of your way.

And a huge shoutout to the Old Faithful level donors who have gone above and beyond to support my modding: Kilyin, Sergeant Anderson, Magiobiwan, bobmat4, Flynn40, FairCop. 



KNOWN ISSUE: The tape sometimes droops through the ground, especially when there is not much wind or with longer pieces of tape. User more barriers and shorter pieces of tape to help reduce this effect. This is due to the limitations of what cloth physics can do in zmodeler/GTA V. I am looking for a way to make the tape more taught, but so far it does not appear to be possible. If you want to try to improve the model files to reduce this issue, by all means feel free to give it a try and let me know if you find anything else. Please do not complain about drooping tape in reviews, this is a KNOWN ISSUE that I CAN NOT FIX because of limitations of the game engine that are outside of my control. 


KNOWN ISSUE: You may need to install a modified gameconfig.xml, depending on your version of GTA V. If you already have a modified gameconfig.xml to support add-on vehicles, you should be OK. If you haven't before and your game crashes on startup after installing Police Tape, you need to install a custom gameconfig. Below are links to gameconfig.xml versions that are known to be compatible with Police Tape for several recent game versions. 



If you don't see one for your game version, try searching on gta-5mods.com. Install gameconfig.xml to (mods)\update\update.rpf\common\data\gameconfig.xml

Manual uninstallation instructions:


To uninstall:

  • Remove PoliceTape.dll and PoliceTape.pdb from your GTA V\Plugins folder
  • Go to (mods)\update\update.rpf\common\data\dlclist.xml, and remove the line with "<Item>dlcpacks:\policetape\</Item>"
  • Go to (mods)\update\x64\dlcpacks\ and delete the policetape folder

I will make an OIV uninstaller later, but there's the manual uninstall instructions for now.

      Very interesting to see a old VL in Gta V. Great job with this model

      A great start, especially since you've done more than just a pursuit call. Unfortunately, the current 1.5.1 version most of the calls have either bugs (often plugin-crashing) or immersion issues (eg Stolen Emergency Vehicle always being driven by a cop/paramedic, not a random Ped).   Still, overall a solid start to a callout back and I look forward to seeing the current issues fixed up and seeing how amazing this pack can become!

      ParksFan has a good bit of content created for GTA V, from plugins to scripts and various other projects. However Police Tape is in my opinion his best plugin for LSPDFR. If you play LSPDFR this plugin is a MUST HAVE. It allows you to easily deploy tape and barriers to attach the tape to, wherever you want and or need it. Perfect for when you have those large post shooting scenes with a lot of victims/suspects. You can tape off the area while you call EMS/Coroner and they render aid. Peds will stay out of the taped off area and look and gaze at the scene within. You can also attach the tape to any surface so it's very convenient even if you don't deploy any barriers. For example you can easily cordon off a street by taping off the intersections at the traffic lights, etc. Be sure to use one of the alternative textures for the tape as well!. The default is just a striped design. You  get " Crime Scene do not cross " and " Police Line do not cross " textures in the download as well. Use them!.
