In the config_wraithv2.luafile, set isPluginEnabled in the to true.

Use of this plugin requires the Sonoran version of Wraith ARS 2X radar and plate reader to function. This resource is bundled with the latest SonoranCAD release as wk_wars2x.

You also need pNotify, a third party plugin that is not bundled by default.

Config Option



use vehicle registration expirations, or not


use middle initials?


alert if no registration was found on scan?


Custom record field UID containing the status


Custom record field UID containing the expiration date


List of statuses to flag/alert on


List of Classes that will NOT get ran through CAD

5. Custom Record Handling

If you wish to have the plugin alert when the vehicle is not registered, is marked as stolen, etc. you will need to ensure you have set the custom record field's UID in your config.

Find your custom record field's UID

In the CAD navigate to Admin > Customization > Custom Records > select your custom Vehicle Registration record.

The very last column of the field containing your status and expiration dates will have the Field Mapping ID.

Set the UID in your Config

By default, the statusUid is status and expiresUid is expiration for the default record. If you have customized these, you will need to update the UID in your config.

Set Statuses to be Flagged

The flagOnStatuses array contains a list of values that will result in a flag being displayed on the radar popup if they're found in the corresponding statusUid field.

Ex: flagOnStatuses = {"STOLEN", "EXPIRED", "PENDING", "SUSPENDED"}

6. Set Your API ID

In order to have locked plate results sent back to your CAD, don't forget to set your account API ID.


For more information on using the in-game UI, please view the Sonoran version of the Wraith ARS 2X release information. Results are sent directly to your CAD when a license plate is locked.

Sonoran wk_wars2x

These features are not found in the original wk_wars2x resource, and only come packaged with our version found here.

Additional Features

  • Added the ability to blacklist certain vehicle classes via the config.lua, these blacklisted vehicles will show on the plate reader as the CONFIG.noPlateValue value (default: "NO PLATE").

  • Added the feature CONFIG.realisticPlateScanning. This feature is disabled by default due to certain vehicles having incorrect metadata causing this feature to display CONFIG.noPlateValue falsely. Behavior when enabled: when you are traveling toward/away from a vehicle that does not have a front/back plate the plate reader will not be able to scan it and will display the CONFIG.noPlateValue value.

Realistic Plate Scanning

Set CONFIG.realisticPlateScanning to true to enable only scanning vehicles with the ALPR when they have a plate.

Note: Some vehicles may show a plate due to missing vehicle metadata or being able to remove the plate with extras.


AI Cars are Spamming the Reader

The framework ships with the wk_wars2x plate reader included. This will have the config.use_sonorancad set to true. When enabled, the plate reader will not run a lookup on any AI vehicle.

Vehicles Aren't Being Flagged


Keep in mind that AI vehicles won't display or be ran unless there's a vehicle registration record added to the CAD with that plate.

Ensure that you've correctly followed step 5 and the statusUid and expirationUid fields have been set correctly, both in the CAD record template and the plugin config.

Ensure that the flagOnStatuses array has the exact string/text values that match the options in your custom record template.

BOLO and Warrant

Ensure that your custom BOLO and Warrant records have a field with the type set to status. Otherwise, there's no way to determine if the BOLO/Warrant is active, closed, etc. The plate reader will warn of any active BOLO or Warrant records with the vehicle plate attached and the status type field set to active/open.
