Better Chases+ 1.0.7

Better Chases+ is a continuation of Eddlm’s & Guadmaz’s famous Better Chases and Arrest Warrants mods, with permission. Completely rewritten with maximum performance in mind and new features added.

Changes from the original mod

Each character can have an arrest warrant now
Each vehicle can also have an arrest warrant
New chases do not resume a warrant chase until you are identified
Many more options to control the mod how you like
Distance, relative speed, and size now dictate police line of sight
Police line of sight is now requried in some level for almost everything
Stolen vehicle identification added (Requires my Stolen script mod – link below)
The in-game menu is now accessed via F8 and can be changed in the config xml file
You can be identified while wearing a mask now – but take that mask off and you are then ~40% less recognizable to police who are looking for a masked suspect. The remaining % is mostly your shirt and pants.

Better Chases Features

Police require PIT authorization before ramming you.
Police require Lethal Force authorization before killing you.
You can surrender above 1 star and below 5 stars by hold E or Cover near police
You can disable police commandeering civilian vehicles
Badly damaged police vehicles will abandon the chase
Driving on sidewalks or the wrong way will increase the wanted level
Crashing into multiple vehicles will increase the wanted level
Speeding excessively (90mph+) will increase the wanted level
Carrying a weapon during a chase will increase the wanted level to 2 stars
Grand Theft Auto will increase the wanted level to 2 stars
Aiming a weapon will increase the wanted level to 3 stars
Hitting a pedestrian during a chase will increase the wanted level to 3 stars and enable PIT

Killing a pedestrian or police will get you 4 stars and enable Lethal Force
Killing multiple pedestrians or police will get you 5 stars
The wanted level raises over time upto 3 stars and enable PIT
Full, partial, and no control over the wanted level is now an option

Arrest Warrants Features

Police can identify your character and vehicle and issue a warrant when you escape
Police will recognize you based on how closesly you match your warrant description
Stolen vehicles can be recognized and initiate a chase (requires Stolen mod – link below)
Once identified, any previously identified chases will resume

Requirements

ScriptHookV
ScriptHookVDotNet
NativeUI

Installation

“Better Chases+.dll” & “BetterChasesConfig.xml” go in your GTAV scripts folder. If you don’t have one, create it.
“NativeUI.dll” goes into your GTAV scripts folder as well. This MUST be version 1.9.x or newer!
Install Stolen (optional)

Known Issues

Police will shoot you with stun guns and not arrest you – you must use the surrender feature
The UI offset options do not load their settings from previously into the NativeUI menu – this is a NativeUI issue

Other Modders
You can issue a warrant with newly public methods, example:
BetterChasesPlus.ArrestWarrants.ActiveWarrant.WantedLevel = 1;
BetterChasesPlus.ArrestWarrants.IdentifyPlayer();
BetterChasesPlus.ArrestWarrants.IssueWarrant(BetterChasesPlus.ArrestWarrants.ActiveWarrant);


1.1.2

Cops should no longer shoot you with the stun gun when you are on the ground, already being stunned, or sitting in a vehicle
Changed surrender animation to one that looks more natural
Rewrote extra bust opportunity (surrendering) so you can initiate it while on the ground or being stunned so you can get up and get busted
Fixed a bug that would sometimes not allow you to surrender (Rockstar code says IsStunned == IsRunning for some reason so now based on player speed)
Changed cop PED detection to type based to support addon cop peds
