Priority II lightbar.
|Availability||NTBI vehicles released in Q3/Q4 2011|
NTBI and Gentek have released a variety of NTBI-Gentek Lightbars exclusively for use on NTBI vehicles.
The Priority is a full-size LED lightbar.
The Priority I was created by ac14 Hutson. It featured 2 cycled patterns and extensive color options. However, it was not very visible from a distance. It was designed to replace the original lightbar created by Will Szymborska. The Priority I was not an NTBI-Gentek lightbar, but is included here for continuity purposes.
The Priority II was created by Nelson Jenkins and was first released on the 2012 Intruder and Imperial Version 5. It features 20+ patterns, scene lights, a dual-color arrow stick, and extensive color options. It supported custom-ordered colors. It, too, suffered from a poor light output from a distance, although was considerably brighter than the Priority I.
The Priority TPF was a prototype design for the new TPF Fire System engines. It was a simple build created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. It featured very good light output, 16+ patterns, and 2 color options. However, it was abandoned and replaced by the Priority III. It was similar to the Priority III, but did not have a dome, and had many more LED units.
The Priority III was created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins, and was only released on the TPF trucks. It differs from the Priority II in that it is based off of the old Ultra Freedom design, somewhat similar to the original lightbar by Will Szymborska. It features 20+ patterns, takedown lights, an LED text/arrow animated display, and user-customizable colors. The LED display is pre-programmed with 20+ messages and arrow patterns. It can be toggled off to display LED flash units instead. The display was not included with the release on the TPF trucks, and therefore was never publicly released.
The Legacy is a strobe lightbar.
Also known as the Priority Legacy. It was created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. It was first released along with the Priority II. It features 3 patterns, takedowns, rear halogen flashers, and 4 color options. It supported custom-ordered colors and was by far the most popular lightbar on NTBI non-mesh vehicles due to its high light output and very good visibility.
The Legacy II was created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. It was first released on the Renegade in January 2012. It features 8 patterns, takedowns, and user-customizable colors. It uses the same mesh as the Priority III.
The Agent is an undercover LED lightbar kit mounted on the windshield and rear window.
The Agent I was created by ac14 Hutson. It featured 2 patterns and 4 color options. The Agent I was not an NTBI-Gentek lightbar.
The Agent II was created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. It was first released along with the Priority II. It featured the same patterns and color options as the Priority II, along with custom-order colors. It was not very popular but served its purpose as an undercover lightbar.
NTBI-Gentek has created strobe kits for new vehicles.
The LR2 Strobes were a scripting/texturing upgrade from the original strobe kit created by ac14 Hutson. It used the same sculpt, but was scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. It was first released along with the Priority II. It featured 5 patterns and 4 color options. It technically supported custom-order colors but they were not made available. It was very popular as no other manufacturer had used multiple strobe patterns. The name was an in-joke derived from the MR2 in the Midship Express commercial and Lyte Rae's initials.
The LR3 Strobes modified the LR2 strobes by adding extra LED units in the rear, and 2 new units on each side of the vehicle in the rear passenger windows. Functionality was left mostly unchanged.
The LR4 Strobes were a significant change in that they employed mesh. Created by ac14 Hutson and scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins, they featured 12+ patterns + 2 CA-compliant steady-burn patterns and user-customizable colors. A halogen version was also made for the Renegade with 4 patterns.
NTBI typically collaborates with Gentek to produce wig-wag animations. Most recently, the 2012 Entourage wig-wags were scripted/textured by Nelson Jenkins. Various versions were made with colored hide-a-way strobes, but ultimately only the white strobe version made it into the vehicle.
