Simulated Erk (Gaming Videos)

Welcome

Welcome to Simulated Erk! After an extensive audio podcasting career, Erk has moved into gaming and creating gaming video. By day job, Erk is a train driver based in Sydney, Australia.

What Games Will You Find Here?

As the name may suggest, you will find a range of simulated games. All of these games are PC based using the Steam system. All games are not modified except for GTA V which is modified into LSPDFR. A full list of games can be found in the sidebar with links to recent episodes below. There is a range of simulation games based on Erk’s interest including train and bus driving, among others. 

 

How Do You Get The Games?

Most games are purchased and downloaded via the Steam game distribution system – only exception is Forza Horizon 3. Some games have additional downloadable content (DLC) that is either from the game company (for example Train Simulator 2017 – additional cost) or by the game community. Some games have morphed into another game entirely due to modifications – Grand Theft Auto V has become LSPDFR for people who want to play GTA as the good guys (police, emergency services). 

 

How Does GTA V Become LSPDFR?

Grand Theft Auto V is set in fictional Los Santos. Thanks to various modifications and programs, GTA’s version of Los Santos can be heavily modified into LSPDFR (Los Santos Police Department First Response). 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. Specifically, Erk’s version of Los Santos aims to have an Australian feel. More specifically, Erk bases his LSPDFR world on  his home state of New South Wales.
