View Full Version : Australian Holden Monaro
Aug 30 2009, 12:24
Hi, today i would like to release the Beta version of my Holden Monaro Civilian and Police version.
This is not the finished version as i still have many more texture varients for the civilian car to apply. I also have a Better Highway patrol texture coming and a working lightbar.
Air One Racing
Special thanks goes to:
Gnat (thanks for your help m8)

Very nice Monaro :) but is lacking super shader (car body,glass):mad: I know it's beta ,but guys why using old A1 effects instead of new A2 alot nicer effects in Arma 2 :confused:
Is there any chance you would be able to send the RVMAT used on the windows? I need it for the scope of a gun I'm working on.
BTW the cars look fantastico!

I decided to compare the monaro cop with long-time standing king of arma 2 cop cars: the Skyline.
Top speed: 109
Handling ability: 8/10
Off road ability: untested
Acceleration ability (w&q): 7/10
Speed: 118 highest recorded
off road: poor
Profile appeal: 9/10
1/4 view: 10/10
front: ~8/10 (w/ guards)
Driver side: right
feel: kind of luxurious, but definitely makes feel fast
driver side: right
feel: a little boring, but it is made up by it's tough appearance
the steering wheel turns the wrong ways, needs to be fixed, but that's pretty much the only bug i've found. Plus the 3 paint jobs including white, plain black, and maroon blows away the skyline cop
you all have driven it, so you should be able to make your own comments
There's a new sheriff in town, and he's got a V8 muscle to back him up!
The Monaro is the best cop car addon for arma 2 as of right now! The only chance that another will take it's crown is when delta hawk finishes his port of the Crown Vics to arma 2. Currently there is a one critical bug with it when you use the CV in arma 2: YOU CAN'T GET IN THE DAM THING! So for now, the monaro is king, but gradual improvments may even blow away Hawk's CVs, these may include UK Paint skins, seperate lightbar and siren functions (basic wail should NOT be integrated into the horn!) and a higher top speed than the civvy version, and it should near 120, and then it will be the true king of cop cars, being far more useful than the skyline and definately the VAZ, hell, the vaz should now just be used as a taxi! One very good thing i like about the monaro is that when you enter from the right side, it's the front seats, and when you enter from the left, it's the back seats, making it easier to take a criminal to the slammer.
If you disagree with my review or want to add Off road ability, please don't hesitate to tell me.
Looks awesome - can you please consider a port to A1?
Looking really good, nice to have some Australian content in Arma2 well done
Any chance of a flannel shirt and thongs addon and Mount Panarama island?
thongs = flip flops, for the rest of the world

Hmm i might just decide to do a reskin of some civilians :)
tried it last night very good like it a lot.
I'll PM over some details to make the car more, well 'fun' :)
much higher top speed 180 ish
much better off road ability (dirt tracks like a rally car)

:LOL: in the 3rd screenie there is a cop present :LOL:
Well i'm psyched about the nxt release, now there's cop lights, sirens (separate, thx now ppl i ticket won't go deaf every time i pull 'em over :soldier::yay:), and 2 new skins, one being Generic New Zeland (sorry if i spelled incorrectly, mozilla wouldn't stop bugging because it isn't in dictionary :() paint scheme, or, if you look at it a bit, UK, the other a CORRECT Australian Highway patrol, and it looks AWESOME!
Man if bluevein gets this into CL2...
Awesome job, especially on the lights and sirens!
PS, you don't HAVE to answer this, but will you be doing any more paints for the cop cars? maybe some tricked out versions of the civvy cars? (the skyline in yellow (has Carbon Fiber hood) is too plain and the Skoda Felicia in red & green is getting old)
I cannot wait to :jail: all those street racers out there!
Sep 4 2009, 22:12
Dammit, someone figured out the carbon fibre hood, hint hint. Maybe once armatech has finished.
Sep 4 2009, 23:14
Got it, man, there's gonna be a cop storm when nxt version is available, as now there's (what everybody had been waiting for) lights and sirens DA DA DAAAAAAA
Sep 5 2009, 23:08
Looks like the cars will soon have a proper habitat, HECK YEAH!
As an Aussie this is awesome to see, keep it up guys.:D

JUst a question, there has been no update in forever, are you guys still working on this or what?
Jan 16 2010, 23:27

Mar 5 2010, 12:13
I can't seem to get the lights and sirens to work.
Mar 5 2010, 12:22
Tip: check out A1 release of the police Peugeot, it had a working siren & lights:
