Toggles the plugin on/off



If using our nearest-postal script, specify the name of its folder here



Specify what "mode" this plugin should use to determine postals. If using nearest-postal, set this to resource. If using an event fired by another resource, set this to event. If using a custom postals file, set this to file.



If you've set mode to event, specify the name of the event fired by your postals resource here


If you've set mode to file, copy your custom postal codes file to the postals plugin folder, and add the name of that file here.


The plugin only supports 1.5.0 or higher of the nearest-postal plugin. Be sure to download the latest version before using.

If you're using the publicly available nearest-postal script, some minor configuration is required.

1. Set the Resource Name

In the Sonoran CAD postals plugin config, change the nearestPostalsResourceName value to the exact name of your nearest postals resource. Ex: nearest-postals-1.5

2. Ensure Proper Startup Order

Be sure that you are starting the nearest-postals addon/resource before/above where you ensure sonorancad in your server.cfg.

Be sure to restart both the Sonoran CAD resource and the nearest-postal script, or restart your server entirely to apply the changes made.

Custom Postal Codes File

If you want to use your own custom postal codes file with this plugin, open the config and change mode to file. Next, copy your custom postal codes file to the postals plugin folder, and set the value of customPostalCodesFile to the name of this file.

Finally, open the fxmanifest.lua file for Sonoran CAD, and change the files { } section at the bottom to look like this, replacing postals_file.json with the name of your postal file:

files {

Do not simply replace the files { } section with that and be done. It is crucial that you change postals_file.json to match the name of your custom postals file!

Custom Postal Events

If you're not using the nearest-postal script or a custom postal codes file, you will need to create a export in your postals script, and have it return the player's current postal as a string.

Additionally, you will need to edit the config to set mode to event, then specify the name of this event in nearestPostalEvent.
