About This File

The Network Addon Mod (NAM) combines all transportation network-related fixes, additions and new creations that have been released so far. It will add countless new features to the existing network tools, such as new overpasses, highway onramps, intersections, ped-malls, a ground light rail network, roundabouts and turning lanes.

This is the Windows version of the Network Addon Mod, featuring an installer.  A Mac version is available here.

NOTE: Due to some technical issues, the file is not directly hosted on the Simtropolis server.  The download button presently will take you to an off-site, registration-free mirror at ModDB, which can also be accessed here.  We hope to have the file available directly through the STEX again shortly, and apologize for any temporary inconvenience.

Installing over previous versions: NAM 35 should be installed directly over top of any previous NAM releases, to ensure that your previous installation options are retained.  A clean install is not recommended.  For more information, see here.

Tech Support: Since NAM 35 is now the most recent release, technical support for NAM 34 and earlier is no longer available.

Special Thanks: The NAM Team would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the members of the community for their continued support over the past 12 1/2 years the mod has existed.

Released

New features in Version 35--November 5, 2016
 
  • New RealRailway (RRW) FlexTrack functionality, including draggable Fractional Angle Railroads (FARR) at three angles (FA-2, FA-3, and FA-1.33/1.5) and improved Single-Track Rail (STR) support.
  • Vastly improved adjacency stability for ramp-style RealHighway (RHW) FLEX Height Transitions, including many adjacencies with FLEXRamps and Draggable Ramp Interfaces (DRIs).
  • Several new draggable NWM transitions: NRD-4-to-ARD-3, NRD-4-to-Avenue, NRD-4-to-TLA-5, NRD-4-to-RD-4, Road-to-RD-4, TLA-3-to-Avenue, TLA-3-to-TLA-5, AVE-2-to-TLA-5, AVE-2-to-Avenue, TLA-7/AVE-6-to-Dual-OWR-3, OWR-4-to-RHW-8S, OWR-5-to-RHW-10S, and OWR-1-to-MIS.

  • At-grade intersection support for the Road, OWR, and Avenue Viaducts, plus other stability and cosmetic improvements.
  • Multi-Radius Curve (MRC) functionality added to the L1 and L2 RHW-2.
  • A number of path fixes involving elevated RHW networks.
  • Support for at-grade RHW-4 x Avenue, RHW-3 x Avenue and MIS x Street intersections (OxO only), as well as improvements and additions to RHW-2 and MIS diagonal intersections with Maxis surface networks.
  • Proper P57-era RHW support for Moonlinght's Alternate El-Rail and Bullet Train (Shinkansen) mods.
  • Various fixes to the Maxis Highway Override (MHO), including improved RealRailway (RRW) support, support for moonlinght's Alternate El-Rail and Bullet Train, and Level Bridges for both L0 and L2 MHO networks.
  • Re-implementation of some multi-tile RHW and NWM starter pieces, to improve stability in preparation for future additions. Legacy code has been added to provide stability to older, unconverted starters.

Very nice update. The only thing i wish is that you hadn't gotten rid of the RHW height transitions, but other than that. nice update. :)

      Hi everyone, 
      Long time player of SC4 (since launch!) and Simtropolis member. I've never had much trouble with installing custom content before, until recently I realized that Catalysts T21 Guardrails for NAM are unzipped and in my plugins folder but don't show up in any menus (or in the plop cheat dropdown menu) while I'm playing. I had the files in their own folder and then tried them in folders such as the ZZ NAM folder but no luck. No idea where to put it or what the files are doing when I boot Sim City. I'm running the most recent NAM and Windows 10.
      This problem is also happening with the NY Teams AABT Hells Kitchen Packs 1 & 2. The third pack works fine but the other two don't which I don't understand. Tried putting the files all together in the same folder but still the buildings in packs 1 & 2 won't show up in any menus, including the cheat menu.
        
      ALSO! Does anyone know of a mod to make NAM highway pieces have grass/texture below them on sweeping curves and highway entrances and exits? I've seen it around in some CJ pictures throughout the years but I don't know where to look. I can find some pics if this write up was a little too confusing. 
      Thanks!

      Given purely residential tile population; so all jobs will be non-local to the tile.
      How does one estimate what transit infrastructure is needed to provide commuting off the tile?
      For example I have one medium tile with a population of 500,000 serviced by 3 HSR links off the tile.  Still the HSR links show that they are hitting 300% capacity or greater on the commute.
      So:
      (1)  How does one estimate ultimate residential population?  (based on wealth, zoning, and coverage)
      (2)  How does one pre-build off tile transit infrastructure which is right sized based on the given population?
      Thanks.
      BTW, NAM 35

      Is there anyway to cross monorail over these double networks? I was hoping high monorail could do it but can't find the puzzle piece for it. Would the only way to cross them be to split the EL rail from the road then transition it to subway or GLR? Thanks for any suggestions.

      I depend a lot on the shortcuts (hotkeys) of the game. I have learned a lot of them from the vanilla SC4D, but I can't find the ones for NAM, SAM, CAM and other ones. Do they exist?
    • By MarkShot
      I know the fastest route is always chosen.
      Is that the fastest route absent of congestion considerations?
      Or is that the fastest route given current traffic conditions?
      I ask, because
      * I am doing a region.
      * I have followed this approach:
      ** HSR for inter-tile transport.
      ** Ground rail for inter-tile freight.
      ** Roads for intra-tile freight and transport. (no roads cross tiles)
      ** Workers move by bus (and in high density tiles) by subway too.
      ---
      So, I am thinking of putting in some cool NAM highways like a 10S or 8C.  But I am thinking unless the highway connects someplace theoretical faster or I exclude some HSR connections; if it is the fastest route without congestion consider, then either my HSR or highway will sit unused.
      So, can I get traffic balanced across major arteries or should I be very careful not to make them parallel?  Or will I get traffic because $$$ workers will prefer to drive?
      Sorry, I know I sound very confused.  I just want some tips before I start laying asphalt.
      Thanks!
      (see below for what I am talking about)
