      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

Issue with patch for NAM 35 installation

9 posts in this topic

I am attempting to install the 1.1.638.0 patch that I need to update to NAM 35. I downloaded, but upon installation am being told it cannot find the "old file". Can someone suggest a next step? Thanks

The first thing we need to know it which version of SC4 are you running. Did it come from some install disks or a digital vendor? If it was digital, did you buy it from Origin?

If you have a digital version it should come pre-patched, the patches will fail because they simply aren't required. The exception being the Origin version, but the unpatched version they are selling is sadly unpatchable too.

However if the error occurs updating the disk version, that could be for a number of reasons. If any files related to the patch have been modified from the originals (for example adding the I-HT fix), that will cause the update to fail. You should use the offical patches right away after installing SC4. Once that's out of the way, you are then safe to further modify them if need be. If this doesn't help you, find the file Patchlog.txt that is created in the folder you ran the patch from, paste a copy of it's contents here and we can see exactly what is going wrong.

I have 1.1.613.0 installed on 4-4-17, but I still have no NAM 35 installation. I purchased the disks at Amazon, and installed them. My computer had crashed and I updated everything on it. I lost the SC4 disks I had, so I had to purchase the new ones. I did no other modifications prior to attempting the patch install.

In which case if you paste the contents of the Patchlog.txt file, we'll be able to see what is happening.

If you're on 1.1.613, that's the European unpatched version.  You'll want to install the SKU2 version of the update.

If you bought the game from Origin, unfortunately, you're out of luck.  Origin is selling an unpatched and unpatchable version, which is missing a number of stability fixes, and can't run the NAM.  See this thread.  There's several other threads around as well.  Apparently, Origin even issued an "update" at one point, that actually downgraded people's copies to the nerfed 1.1.610.

If you're going to buy another copy of SC4, I'd recommend GOG.com (Good Old Games) instead of Steam.  It's the same price as Steam's version, but there's no DRM associated with it. 

If you're willing to push Origin customer service enough, you can probably get a refund from them, as the user in the thread I linked did.

      I use NAM 34 ; the roundabouts don't look like the  pictures in the folder  (and no trees grow there) Does this mod (dating 2014) still works with the more recent NAMs ?
    • By Joe_Winko_From_YouTube
      So, i just installed NAM for SimCity 4 because i saw pictures of the highways and thought they were really cool. Now, i just learned that NAM is MUCH more complicated that i thought. but i guess i could catch onto it eventually.
      Here's my questions for now.
       
      1.) is there a way to connect a NAM-road to a normal SimCity in-game road? and if so how?
      2.) is there a way to connect a NAM-highway to a road? and if so how?
      3.) for the NAM highways and neighbor-cities-connection, is there a certain thing i have to do to make the NAM roads or highways go out of the cities and connect to the other boarding cities? 
       
      Also, are there any tutorials i can follow? most of the ones i found online are outdated.

      SimCity 4 is a spreadsheet that will never be balanced, but that’s what makes it so fun, even 14 years after release.
      Yesterday, an article about SimCity 4's Network Addon Mod, a comprehensive mod for roads and traffic in SimCity 4, reached the front page of r/Games.”Not only has SimCity 4 survived, it has thrived with new creations offered daily by content-makers, and has even evolved with substantial player-developed modifications like the Network Addon Mod,” author Dirktator wrote. While that’s definitely true, and the thriving mod community for SimCity 4 is a joy to browse through, after playing until two in the morning I can safely say that SimCity 4 also holds up on its own.

      I believe  TSCT.jar could be run from anywhere. Could someone confirm this for me?
      If so, what files will it need to find and where are they supposed to be?
      Any help appreciated.

      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).
      Edit 3: I've added a Tutorial for Road under Rail to this thread.   Edit 4: Added Tutorial for Avenue under Rail.
