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.

  • 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.

      First of all, thanks in advance, the thing is, I'm trying to build cities that look more realistic and in order to that I want to try the RHW, so far I've avoided for good reasons, I read a lot of people complaining about how difficult it is at first but now I feel it's time, where should I start? Are there good tutorials available? For example, I still cannot understand how you connect them to other cities, etc.

      @kschmidtLooking good!
      As for the textures, I'm fairly certain you don't need Maarten's texture mod, since all options should be contained in the NAM. When running the installer, the Euro Texture mod should be one of the options -  you may need to chose a 'Custom Install'. Try removing any external euro-texture mods, like Maarten's and then re-run the NAM installer.

      Hi, sorry, but i am an idiot, because when i install new NAM 35 that it cancel trees in basic park, is it possible?
    • By Moses Zal
      Hey guys,
      There is something about the NAM that I need to ask you about.
      There are 2 ways to construct turning lanes or tuleps. In case of roads, one is automatically done by plopping a 1- way road stub in the center of the intersection and 1 is manually done by plopping all the required puzzle pieces. Same goes for avenues, there are 2 ways.
      Does both ways yield the same results in organizing and making the traffic less congested or is one better than the other.
    • By olegario39
      ok so I reinstalled my NAM and chose custom installation to install features I might have missed. and...I got this...
      1) the rail textures remain unchanged despite having the SFBT texture installed. and therefore, that ugly dirt texture is still there even on adjacent high density commercial zones and i hate it.
      2) the RHW has completely overriden the Maxis highway and when I try to build a cloverleaf, the Maxis cloverleaf appears instead. and honestly I hate the override.
      Did I do something wrong? If so, how can I fix this, and what are the individual files, so I can delete them, instead of reinstalling the NAM all over again?

    • WAY too expensive.  Otherwise great.  
    • I'm finally getting back to this lot, and now starting to make at least 3 different variations taking from ideas presented here.  Not sure if the lot can be made 2x2 and still work as the same growable,  but if there's a tweak I need to make, please let me know as I would like to add some ground area to the lot. I don't have an SC4Desc file for it, but I'm now re-lotting this re-lot, so yes, some parking and a gas station added will go into 1 of a few new variations, Thanks for the input.   It will be a 2x2, if I can get 2x2 working the same as a growable.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to the more advanced content creators above for suggestions.   Whatever I come up with, as mentioned, I have to keep in mind how often this lot shows up and find a way to make that repetitiveness look good in-game --It does work as a blvd with the overdose of big trees, but that's all so far.
    • uggh, i'm confused. I installed this because I want a bus stop on road but I can't find the tile on the menu bar. Does it appear in form of ploppable "bus stop" (but can be done in top of road) or "road tiles with bus stop"?
    •       Looks very nice , but like said above "I don't rate content by pictures " and I too will get back after I get it in game . You have been giving us quality stuff and I thank you for your dedication to bring us new content . Keep up the good work .         I just noticed Trixie emoticons , it must be that time of year again .
