Guys, this is something completely random but kinda awesome and something that NEEDS to happen really badly; is it possible to add police cars in Need for Speed Underground 2 other than simply making a traffic car look like a cop car?
I don't really mean proper heat levels and hot pursuit chases like in Most Wanted, Carbon and Undercover, just some cop cars in the game that you can see cruising around Bayview and as they see you fly by them in your Civic or Corolla, while challenging another racer to an outrun, or trying to beat the clock while attempting to score a magazine cover, they engage a chase upon you, with something like this;
"I've got a speeder here, yeah code-3 chase he's not stopping. Speed's way over the posted limit and increasing. Suspect vehicle's a black/blue/red/silver/white/green/yellow/purple - Nissan/Honda/Acura/Toyota/Mitsubishi/Subaru etc…"
Or something like…
"I've got a hit and run suspect here dispatch. The driver spotted me, yeah code-3 chase he's not stopping. Suspect's in a black/blue/red/silver/white/green/yellow/purple - Nissan/Honda/Acura/Toyota/Mitsubishi/Subaru etc…"
We could make 'em appear to be upgraded and with newer more better cars as we unlock and upgrade our own cars with the career's progression, just to make 'em harder. Here's what I was going for;
**STAGE 1:- _City Center;_**
Pursuit Civic Cruiser (stock performance). About 1-5 in number
**STAGE 2:- _Beacon Hill;_**
Pursuit Volkswagen Golf GTI (level 'Street' Engine, Transmission, ECU, Nitrous Oxide). About 5-10 in number
**STAGE 3:- _Jackson Heights;_**
Pursuit Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V (level 'Street' complete performance). About 5-10 in number
**STAGE 4:- _Coal Harbor East;_**
Pursuit Subaru WRX STI (level 'Pro' complete performance). About 10-15 in number
**STAGE 5:- _Coal Harbor West;_**
Pursuit Nissan 350Z (level 'Extreme' complete performance). Maximum of about 20+
In regard of damage as everyone knows how in UG2, a minor collision with a traffic car takes you down as well, we can keep the damage more stable by giving the cop cars similar physics like street racer; your car would not be taken down as well while hitting them unless you crash with full speed.
Now, what the cops can do, is that they can chase us while we're ripping the streets of Bayview in Explore Mode or during a race like Sprints or Circuits. What their objective would be to ram and attempt to throw our car off the road by taking us down and box us in a corner as more cops start to appear. A chase bar similar to our outrun bar can pop up on the right side of the screen contrary to the outrun bar with a cop car insignia on it. If too many cops corner us and the bar fills up red, reading the words in bold as "BUSTED!". A specific amount of our bank could be taken away depending on what stage you're on;
**STAGE 1/2:-** _-100 Bank_
**STAGE 3/4:-** _-250 Bank_
**STAGE 5:-** _-400 Bank_
Now I've given you an idea how the cops will work, here's what we can do to counter the 5-0. Shake the cops off of your six like you do to any other outrun racer you challenge on the streets, only this time you've got more than one. Unlike outrun racers, you can easily kill them once by ramming them at full speed, forcing them to a wall, or a traffic car, or by stunning them by simply flipping their car around and over. Once you've cleared off a bit of the heat, hit the gas and try to get as far away as possible. The chase bar would likely be filled up blue depending on how far away we are from them and a message can pop up saying "You lost the Cops!" No bank would be rewarded once we succeed, just like any other Need for Speed.
We could also add cop-speech from an old BETA version of Need for Speed Most Wanted that was, according to Speedyheart; supposed to be released after Need for Speed Underground in 2004.
Here's a link to the video she discovered, if anyone's interested. We could insert the cop-speech from here if it is possible. The reason I chose this game was because many of the car companies the cops mention are actually in Need for Speed Underground 2; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Kr0fbOn3Zg
Check out more of her videos. She's doing an awesome job :)
Well guys, that's just about all I would like to say. Please go through this and please comment if the possibility of bringing cops to Need for Speed Underground 2 can be made into a reality. The game would be even more better and worthwhile in this way.
Peace and Love y'all..
