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.

New features in Version 34--December 25, 2015
 

  • The Tram-in-Avenue (TiA), Tram-in-Road (TiR), Tram-on-Road (ToR), and Tram-on-Street (ToS) dual networks are now partially draggable. To activate the dual networks, click the Elevated Rail tool over Avenue for TiA, the Elevated Rail tool over Road for TiR, the Rail tool for ToR, and the Elevated Rail tool on Street for ToS.
  • Elevated RealHighway (RHW) networks and draggable Elevated Road, One-Way Road, and Avenue Viaducts can now form overpasses over Tram-in-Avenue, Tram-in-Road, Tram-on-Road, and Tram-on-Street dual networks. Simply drag the crossing network up to the edge of the Tram Dual-Network to form a stub, and begin dragging from stub on the other side of the Tram Dual-Network to continue the network. Some support for networks besides RHWs and the Road Viaducts has also been added, using similar means.
  • RealHighway crossings over Network Widening Mod networks are now vastly more stable.
  • Multi-Radius Curves (MRCs) for the Road network have been added in draggable form, in four different radii (R1-R4).
  • Signalized intersections for One-Way Roads are now possible in the initial phase of the OWR Signalization and Turn Arrow Project (SITAP), complete with turn arrows before the intersection . These signals cannot automatically appear, due to the game's handling of One-Way Road mechanics, but can be activated by transitioning from One-Way Road to Road just before the intersection. For intersections between two One-Way Roads, it is necessary to click over the resultant 90-degree Road bend with the One-Way Road tool. +-intersections and T-intersections between One-Way Roads and Roads, One-Way Roads, Avenues, and +-intersections (no T-intersections) with single-tile Road-based NWM networks (TLA-3, AVE-2, ARD-3, NRD-4) are available.
  • 7 new bridges by eggman121 have been added, including the first-ever NWM bridges for the RD-4 and RD-6 networks, plus a new RHW-4 bridge, and four RealRailway (RRW) bridges.
  • FLEX On-Slope Transitions for the Elevated Road, One-Way Road, and Avenue Viaducts have been improved to support tighter situations, where a network is directly below the elevated end of the transition.
  • Many Elevated RHW base network features now show preview textures.
  • An issue with High Speed Rail crossings over wider ground-level RHW networks has been addressed.
  • An issue preventing the proper override of the ramp interfaces on L1 RHW QuickChanges has been fixed. Some clickaround may still be necessary to force the overrides to continue.

 

  • Mac users: Support for Mac OS X is presently on hiatus, in part due to changes Apple made to the latest version of OS X, El Capitan (10.11), and other issues reported by OS X users.  We are waiting to find a suitable solution before a Mac package is again made available.  NAM 32.1 will remain available for Mac users in the interim, but with NAM 32's Windows release no longer being supported, support for NAM 32.1 will be extremely limited.
  • Installing over previous versions: NAM 34 may be installed directly over top of any previous NAM releases. It is a full release, not a patch or a hotfix. All future updates are planned to be in full package form, and there are no plans to issue patches or hotfixes in the future. Please also note that the NAM Team only provides technical support for the most recent version, which, as of this document, is NAM 34. We cannot assist users of the NAM 33 or earlier.
  • 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 11 years the mod has existed.

 

  • This is the Windows version of the Network Addon Mod, featuring an installer.

    • Cori's First FLUP - With Pics
      By CorinaMarie
      So, those FLUPs in NAM really had me confuzzled for a while.
      I'm going to attempt a tutorial which I wish I could've found whilst I was having difficulties in learning this concept. I simply don't do well with videos as instructions and all the nicely written tutorials I found have long since lost their pictures. For all the peeps who already know these basic steps I'll ask if I'm over thinking this and how could this be improved. For peeps using NAM for the first time I hope this proves helpful. (I'm using way more pics than is prolly necessary cause I like seeing each actual step and the change which occurs.)
      Let's start with the thriving metropolis of First FLUP (Population: 5). It's simply a Road running East/West with a house on the west portion. A Street runs North/South intersecting the Road to the east of the house. At the north end of the Street is a farm.

       
      Using the Route Query tool we see that 2 pedestrians walk to the farm and one freight truck goes south from the farm, turns west, and drives off the map at the Road's neighborhood connection.

       
      What I'm going to do is for a proof of concept rather than a suggestion on city layout. First I bulldozed the Street connections both north and south of the East/West Road. (Bulldoze one tile on either side and leave the Road still fully intact.)

       
      Next I select FLUP from the Transportation Tools / Build Roads menu and hover it over the Road where the intersection used to be. By default it is the Ramp for underground Road.

       
      Now I tap the Tab key until it changes to Diagonal underground route under straight Road. This is a preliminary step to get to what I really want. (This part was not at all intuitive to me.)

       
      Then use the End key until it changes to Straight underground route under straight Road. (It looks like a narrow dirt path running perpendicular to the Road.)

       
      And here it is after plopping. (It now looks like a normal road with the same kind of sidewalks you get next to commercial zoning.)

       
      Going back to the Transportation Tools I select FLUP again. (It's back to the Ramp for underground Road.) I position it one square north of the Road at the south end of the Street in the empty space.

       
      Press Tab key until it changes to Street ramp connecting to underground road.

       
      Press Home key once and it rotates to the proper orientation:

       
      Now click to plop it and we see the Street going down a ramp which looks like it's going under the road.

       
      With this particular FLUP still on the cursor I moved directly south of the Road in the space between the rest of the Street.

       
      At this point I thought I could just use Home or End keys to rotate it into position, but NO, that didn't work. So, I moved south one more tile so it was on top of the Street and then it auto rotated.

       
      Next I moved it back one tile north next to the Road.

       
      And here it is after plopping:

       
      To test that it would actually allow traffic thru, I then connected the east end of the Road with the south end of the Street forming a small square with them:

       
      And using the Route Query tool we see 2 cars and 1 freight truck are now using the FLexible UnderPass.

       

       
      Edit: Useful tip suggested by @Mandarin(a): Use Shift-Tab to cycle thru the items in reverse order. This is especially useful if you hit Tab too many times and want to go back to a previous option.
      Note: This is the ideal part of a community helping each other. I was aware of this, but it did not occur to me to include it when I was writing this guide.
      Edit 2: FLUPs can be use as underwater tunnel too. See Ro-Bo's: How to Build Underwater Tunnel Using Flexible Underpasses (FLUPs).

    • NAM confusion: curved roads and roundabouts
      By SimplyJenny
      I started playing SimCity when it first came out in... 1989/90? I think the last version I played was 3k. A couple of weeks ago I got Simcity 4. Woot! I'm loving it! I'm generally happy with vanilla but installed NAM for the improved traffic flow and better road layout options. 
      Someday I'll figure out how to make a  no-car mass-transit city, but right now I just want to figure out how to make roundabouts and cul de sacs!! I've been playing around with the kajillion road options NAM has provided but I'm stumped.
      Question, in precis: How do I make roundabouts and cul de sacs with NAM 34?
      TIA

    • Where can I find update 1.1.638.0 other than sc4devotion?
      By lildee321
      I am a longtime fan of SC4, however due to college I haven't been able to play in past year. I am so excited that I have time to pick up and rebuild old cities using the new feature of NAM 34 (I have 32 pre).
      In the process of me installing the new NAM, I a required to update my version of SC4 to 1.1.638.0 . Unfortunately, the link sends me to sc4devotion.com, which has been under construction for the past week. Is there any other place I can find the update so I can get back to enjoying SC4???
      I am dying to use the new RHW 4s Flex fly !!!!!
    • Newly Converted NAM-ite Here :)
      By CorinaMarie
      So, I've just installed NAM and I love it!
      This isn't how I'll actually lay out my town, but it shows what NAM can do:

      The most frustrating part was figuring out how to get my dirt roads to extend and connect and such. This quote answered that for me:
      Now, iirc, this part no longer applies:
      Cause I think I read somewhere (prolly in an @rsc204 reply to someone) that the stopper has been integrated into the current NAM. Right?
       
      Also, I had to un-check the New Zones View so the trees would disappear:

      Is there any way I can have all the cool features of the new view, but without the trees showing up? I use my zone view when I'm laying out my roads. Otherwise I'd like to use this option. I am now just a tiny bit familiar with iLive Reader and if I can make one simple change there, please guide me to what I'd be looking for.
      And then one more question. When doing the NAM install it said something about checking for any other mod that would bork things. I don't have any others installed atm. I will, however, be installing bunches of the MTP and SPAM stuff @A Nonny Moose told me about my first or second day here. What I'd like to know is if I install stuff, can I then re-run the NAM installer and have it re-check that nothing will conflict?
      So, to recap, my questions are:
      Do I need SAM Stopper? (I'm pretty sure it's: No.) Can I make trees disappear while using the new Zones View? If so, how? Does re-running NAM installer check newly added mods for conflicts? Thanks!
