Took some time to test the content of NEWPOL.RAR (the one you uploaded on 21 jan at 4:15PM).

First some basic things: if you want people to test your stuff, post pictures, detail what is inside the archive and release individual archives (as in: one zip per car).
Additionally, mods that replace existing files should be released with enough warning about the files that get overwritten. In this case your APC+BIGAPC mod could be its own archive with overwritten files detailed in the Readme and suggestion to backup the original files.

- As the opponent code chunks are the same, there's no need to include the APC and BIGAPC ones in the Readme.
- For some reason, IVAN.TXT and SCREWIE.TXT are also included. I didn't pay attention and thus these overwrote my files.
- EASTWOOD is also included? Minus the opponent code chunk.
- We're not too sure about this but we think it might be counterproductive to set all car numbers to 00. Best set them to different numbers until we completely figure out how they're used by the game.
- The archive is missing TKMUG.FLI and HBTANK.TXT (couldn't test this one at all).
- With Carma95, BIGAPC makes the game crash, groovyfunkrefs 11 and 12 must be set to -1. And some lines before, 13 and 14 must be removed and the number of steerable wheels set to 2 instead of 4.
- I noticed TAXI has no turning front wheels, if you did that on purpose to avoid the wheels going through the fenders, then it's nice :)

I knew i should have done that, though i'm not very good at it. Thats why i usually leave it out.
When making the archive i thought putting all of these in one was a safe idea (like the 7 Broom! vehicles)

-That has gone unnoticed, changed that now.
-Ivan and Screwie.txt have been included because of a sound effect change, nothing special
-The eastwood is included because all vehicles (except the APC's) are based on Hard boiled vehicles.
-I never encounterd a problem with that, always put it on 00 by default
-TNK files have been added now.
-Guess the DOS version works a bit different. I've changed it now though the groovyfunkrefs still confuse me
-That is on purpose.
