  1. Airport Baggage Cart Override

    FANTA1990 Presents:

    Ever wonder who's driving that little green go-cart wandering around the tarmac at your airport? Among all the figures available in the game, a policeman looked best and was chosen to sit behind the wheel. Next, the absence of any baggage behind the baggage cart had to be addressed. So, three simple, yet realistic curtained cars were attached to the rear. The resulting combination fit the bill nicely, so that particular mod was deemed complete.
     
    To boost realism even further, another more elaborate option was created from a series of aircraft ground support vehicles extracted from "Emergency 4" (aka "911"). A modern fuel truck ranked most essential and was first to be included. The generic trolley was then replaced with a five car assembly, each having a unique function and appearance complete with intricate detailing. Finally, self-propelled boarding stairs were positioned amongst the other two vehicles completing the trio. Any additional equipment only detracted from the simulated independence of the others. The result is a mobile group of easily recognizable airplane support apparatus.
     
    Both options work equally well and are available to suit a variety of individual tastes. Neither require dependencies. Even the most impressive and realistic airports will be incomplete without this one inconspicuous, yet crucial mod.
     
    Required:
    Luggage_AIRx3-Police.dat - Replaces the default luggage cart with a 4-car trolley manned by a policeman.
    -OR-
    Emergency4 Airport Vehicles.dat - Replaces the default luggage cart with a mobile group of ground support equipment
     
    Optional:
    Emergency4 Airport Vehicles_7f1038a5.sc4lot - Optionally installs a demonstration lot with props for use in the Lot Editor

  2. Cruise Ship Expansion Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A few more extravagant options for your ocean going holiday travelers. 
     
    Engineered for tropical regions, a colonial style boat from Cities XL showcases an expansive wooden deck embedded with an Olympic size swimming pool. Raised lifeboats accommodate an extended promenade ideal for observing ocean flora or a leisurely twilight stroll. The distinctive helipad on its bow provides exclusive VIP tours when not responding to an emergency medical evacuation.
     
    Adapted for cooler regions, the other ship from Tropico 4 specializes in climate controlled luxury beneath a spacious 20 acre atrium. Vented skylights, living trees, and grandiose fountains play host to an ever present flock of stowaway birds. This lavish floating palace combines the furnishings of a modern shopping mall, the glamour of a casino, and the service of a five-star hotel.
     
    As mayor, you reserve the right to commandeer the helm on any of the vessels without notice (UDI). Fortunately, advanced autopilot technology eliminates the need for extensive nautical training (No Dependencies). To make up for the lack of night lighting, passengers are treated to an increased occurrence of Beluga Whale sightings off the ships hull. This dynamic duo of lush luxury liners integrates so naturally with the game it seems as if they're unlocked rather than add-ons.
     
    Choose one of the following two files inside the download:
     
    New Cruise and UDI MOD.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    New Cruise and UDI MOD-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
     
    Ship Generators.dat - (Optional) Cruise Ship Generating lot also found in Fanta's Automata Generators Vol1.

  3. Automata Fix Pack Vol1

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    There are many reasons a gamer may choose to forego automata replacement mods, preferring instead the default vehicles shipped with SC4. In so doing, certain cosmetic anomalies that were present from the beginning have to be overlooked, at least until now. The files contained herein do nothing more than re-render standard objects the way they were originally intended to appear. Hence they are very small, have no effect on performance, and will function under any platform and configuration supported by the game. Naturally, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. This package is intended to pick up where Maxis left off, preserving the integrity of the game in a small, but still relevant way.
     
    Maxis FreightEngine Fix.dat - Restores the forward facing panels and far side framework of the Freight Train Engine when viewed from the right-front.
    MidJetPlane FIX.dat - Restores the rudder and fin assembly directly beneath the horizontal stabilizer on the Mid-Size Jet when viewed from the left-front.
    SkyDiver Skin Fix.dat - Eliminates a section of the fuselage protruding through the wing above the cabin on the Skydiver Plane when viewed from the left-rear.
    armybase_jumpjacksX3.dat - Reconfigures the formation of troops gathered at military installations to eliminate overlap and realign 3 distinct groups of soldiers performing calisthenics (Additional arrangements are available on Fanta's website).

  5. Commuter Bus Expansion Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    When it comes to replacing that default blurry blue bus, the sheer number of choices can potentially trigger a migraine. Continue reading to avoid that headache altogether using another one of Fanta's signature mods. He began by dividing available funds among three different size buses, imported from Cities XL, making the entire network more efficient. A half-length community bus serves special needs passengers and offers door-to-door service. A double-decker unit provides the best profit margins for high volume routes. Finally, the conventional single-decker is most versatile and can fill in for the other two if necessary. Fanta then settled on a generic, yet streamlined blue and white texture with heavily tinted windows to achieve an ultra-polished look and overall cooler cab. Classic front and rear marquee signs advertise the destination to waiting patrons while dual access doors assure a smooth entry and exit, minimizing stops which hypothetically reduces traffic congestion and commute times. Subtle details like side view mirrors and ventilation ducts nail down the overall realism. Finally, you can expect well tuned night lighting, multiple selection UDI, comprehensive props, available HD textures, and not a single dependency.
     
    Choose one of the following two files inside the download:
     
    CXL BUS.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    CXL BUS-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.

  6. Live News Correspondence Vans

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    If you can't beat the paparazzi, make them think you're on their side. Fill the TV station's parking lot with these shiny new minivans outfitted with the very latest in sophisticated comm equipment courtesy of Emergency 4. They'll spend more time turning dials and pressing buttons, and less time peeping through your keyhole. A direct link to Fanta's News Chopper ensures they'll never lose a story in traffic. Of course, most commuters will make way when they notice the swiveling satellite dish, two-tone paint job, and flashy decals pasted to every surface. An overhead wind deflector reduces noise, and tinted windows conceal exactly where the camera is pointed to keep things real. This is essentially an automata reskin, so there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. Since the action never stops, all models come with Nightvision technology (Nightlighting), GPS (UDI), and spare parts (props). Help your sims stay informed through good and bad with these state-of-the-art correspondence vehicles.

  7. Fully Loaded Recycling Trucks

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    With so many sims becoming earth conscious, the need to transport recyclable material has skyrocketed. Whether destined as next week's newspaper or a sugary soda can, it first must find its way to a specialized sanitation facility. The obvious route from curbside to sorting shed is by road on trucks purpose built to haul the ugly, smelly cargo. Two heavy duty rigs, one for presorted debris and another for bulk refuse have been submitted to Waste Management for approval. Both are manufactured by GTA IV Motors and come standard with UDI, Night lighting, and props. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. These work horses fit right in with any custom recycling center and will literally take a load off your overworked Garbage trucks, including Fanta's own Authentic Garbage Truck.
     
    To sweeten the deal, a bonus Toxic Waste Truck is included, tax and title free!

  8. UDI Unlock Kit

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    One of his first and probably most useful mods. The concept is simple. Combine several specialized buildings in a single lot to enable each one's respective vehicle in the UDI menu. Vehicles unlocked include, but aren't necessarily limited to the following: All three civilian helicopters, the Military chopper, Fighter Jet, Firefighting Jet, UFO, Landing Strip Aircraft, and many others. Some conditions may be unavoidable such as positioning the lot adjacent to a mass transit track to test drive a train. This mod is very rudimentary, so it might not work in every situation. Try to keep feedback constructive and requests may be implemented in a future release. It's intended only as a convenient way to sample and test Fanta's growing collection of automata.

  9. Automata Generators Vol1: Sea & Sky

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    Breath life into your skies and water ways with a series of lots built specifically to spawn a variety of marine vessels and one to give your resident dare devils an outlet for their dangerous appetites.
     
    1x1_AirShowParkV2.dat - The crown gem of this package will thrill your sims with regular and sometimes disastrous air shows.
    Recreational Boat Gen.dat - Plop directly on water to swiftly generate wake with yachts and speed boats to stir up your seas.
    Cruise & Cargo Ship Gen.dat - Creates two menu icons, one for thumping cargo ships and another that will cause cruise ships to materialize.
    Fishing Boat Gen + Cargo.dat - Cleverly spawns commercial fishing vessels complete with smoke and seagulls using inconspicuous bouys to prevent surface distortions. The technique is tied to cargo ships, so they too will occasionally crop up amongst the others.
    Steam Boat Gen.dat - Will add a classical feel to your marine setting with the appearance of steam ships trailed by dirty plumes of smoke and steam.
     
    All of the above generators appear in the parks menu. The Maxis Air Force Base must exist in the plugins folder for proper operation of the Air Show Park and Steam Ship Generator. You can download it from the Dutch site below if necessary. SimCityKurier does not require registration and is a well established resource for SimCity 4 content.

  10. Ambulance Expansion Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A formidable family of cutting edge emergency ambulances imported from Emergency 4 (aka 911). Four specialized units outfitted with the latest life saving technology, cast a reassuring presence while racing through red lights to the scene of an accident. This breakneck caravan replaces the game's default Granny Getter with the following randomly generated models:
     
    1.) The "Emergency" ambulance is most common and functions as a portable Emergency Room.
    2.) The "Patient Transport" wagon allows EMT staff to provide continuous treatment while enroute to a permanent facility.
    3.) The "Response" unit is smaller and less equipped enabling it to arrive on scene first and provide immediate care for acutely ill patients.
    4.) The "Charity" bus provides basic healthcare services to less fortunate communities from a specially equipped van.
     
    Each striking vehicle comes with UDI, Night lighting, Props, and a color scheme shared with the Medical Chopper from Fanta's Civilian Helicopter Facelift as highlighted by the included demonstration lot. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's a lightweight mod meant to compliment the assortment of ultramodern hospitals available on the STEX and elsewhere.

  12. Aerial Billboards Collection

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    Eight flavors of Blimps to draw more Sims and Funding to your city's Major League Stadium. These helium filled billboards are a highly effective form of marketing due to their low cost, lingering speed, and freedom to fly in restricted airspace. Originating in Great Britain during WWI, these airships were chartered from Tropico 4 and employ the same format used by Goodyear since 1925. This is essentially an automata reskin, so there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. However, before dispatching to your skies, you must select only one of the following default replacements pictured from left to right:
     
    _Blimp
    _Blimp-SimCity
    _Blimp-SimCity-Deluxe
    _Blimp-SimCity-Old
    _Blimp-POLICE
    _Blimp-MAXIS
    _Blimp-SC
    _Blimp-SC4
    _Blimp-Goodyear
    _Blimp-SCCN
    _Blimp-SCME
     
    I've assembled each design along with a bonus generator lot into the following two downloads:
     
    Aerial Billboards.zip - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    Aerial Billboards-256.zip - May be used with Software Acceleration

  13. Firetruck Expansion Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    If you like Fanta's Police Car Expansion Pack, you'll love his Firetruck Expansion Pack. Five trucks derived from Emergency 4 (aka 911) each having a specific function, join forces to combat breakouts from every angle.
     
    1.) The "Pumper" unit exclusively transports water or other anti-flammable liquids, and can tap into local water sources.
    2.) The "Ladder" unit comes equipped with a hydraulic bucket ladder to reach victims several stories up.
    3.) The actual Fire "Engine" carries an array of tools, including extension ladders, to tackle many kinds fire hazards.
    4.) The "Command" vessel manages logistical support and oversees the whole operation with sophisticated communication equipment.
    6.) The "Hazmat" truck hauls specialized protective gear, decontamination supplies, and bomb disabling technology.
     
    Every truck comes with UDI, nightlighting, and props that automatically replace their Maxis counterparts. Although not required, Fanta's Fireman Skin Mod will provide your squad with matching hi-tech suits to bolster their performance and moral. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. The improvement over the game's built-in battalion is immense and really helps it measure up to modern standards.

  14. Hang Glider Makeover

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    Something that resembles an actual Hang Glider instead of a paper airplane. This slightly larger replacement combines sharper colors with a bowed delta wing affixed to a clearly visible airframe. Upon closer inspection, you may notice the pilot doubles as the default game paratrooper. Additionally, the mod corrects a bug that cancels out the pilot's upper body immediately aft of the control bar. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's a subtle enhancement that will add to the overall realism of any city.
     
    ** Includes a Bonus Hang Glider Generating Lot!

    FANTA1990 Presents:

This cherry red beauty comes equipped with four jet engines and a huge cargo bay adapted to hold enough water for dousing any accidental flare up. Most cities have only one such tool in their arsenal, so make it count. Used by top first responders in Emergency 4 (aka 911), you'll be proud to park this gem on your squad's taxiway. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required.

  17. Authentic Garbage Truck

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    Finally, what garbage trucks really look like. A dull coat of chipped paint, rusty wheels, and a permanent layer of grime give this sanitation vehicle an ultra realistic appearance that doesn't detract from it's form or function. An indistinct logo and lettering are superimposed atop a befitting texture borrowed from GTA IV. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration. It's an easy way to improve on the realism and appearance of other squeaky clean variations currently available.

  18. Civilian Helicopter Facelift

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A much needed facelift for all three municipal helicopters inspired by designs from Emergency 4 (aka 911). The Police Chopper brandishes a blue and white paint job with matching decals and a gyrating inset tail rotor. The Medical Helicopter gleams with two-tone emergency orange markings and bold black insignia on the either side. The News Helicopter boasts a red, white, and blue pattern with inset tail rotor and elaborate emblems. Each bird features exquisite detail including wider blades, distinguishing runners, and tinted windows. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's an easy way to improve the realism and appearance of the game's otherwise mostly siloughetted renditions.

  19. Police Car Expansion Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A Complete overhaul of public safety vehicles preserving the original look and feel. The Police Car itself was extracted from Emergency 4 (aka 911) and resembles real life LA Police units. A matching SUV found its start in Cities XL and a new Riot van was yanked from GTA4. All vehicles override their default equivalents on both lots and roadways bringing with them active night lights, UDI, and Fanta's own signature emergency lights. Finally, props and two demonstration lots round off the package. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's an easy way to improve the realism and attractiveness of the game's otherwise monotonous police fleet.
     
    Required:
    LA Police Car+CXL SUV+GTA4 Stockade V1.1.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    -OR-
    LA Police Car+CXL SUV+GTA4 Stockade V1.1-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.

  20. World Travel Airlines Plane Pack

    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A Complete replacement of default civilian airplanes sharing a common fictional theme. Each model was adapted from Microsoft Flight Simulator 9 (2004) with exception to the Voltaire which uses an original texture featuring propeller engines, and the Crop Duster which was cloned from Tropico4. The planes all sport the same color scheme and logo of World Travel Airlines (WTA), the sole carrier in Sim Nation. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration. It's an easy way to improve the realism and appearance of the game's otherwise drab portrayal of manned flight.  Nightlighting remains intact and UDI is still available for the landing strip aircraft.

  21. Sayonara! Maxis Trees

    100% inspired by Marsh's Maxis Tree Replacement Mod, I present you the Sayonara! Maxis Trees Mod, my personal take on Maxis flora replacement. It will instantly replace every instance of Maxis tree flora and tree props from your lots, T21 mods and mayor mode plopped trees.
     
    While I acknowledge Marsh's mod has a fine and visually appealing selection of trees, it sometimes does take a bit too much space and leads to undesired effects, making lots and streets look a bit overcrowded in my opinion. This mod was created to avoid this - the mindset was to replace trees with trees of similar size and volume.
     
    Palm trees were deliberatly omitted as they do not fit in every type of city, but you still can use SHK's Maxis Palm Replacement Mod if you wish to have palm trees; just make sure it loads after the present mod and you'll be set.
     
    Update 1.1
     
    Originally the mod used quite extensively beeches props as replacement but those were unavalaible to download for some time. Now that Girafe released a new livery of the beeches, the mod is exactly how I designed it in the first place. Also flora parameters left in their original state could lead to unpredictable and/or undesirable effects when used with advanced tree controllers- those were corrected to ensure proper functionality with said controllers. Many thanks to blunder for the heads-up!
     
    PS: the screenshots haven't been updated... Feeling lazy
     
    Installation
     
    Drop anywhere in your plugins folder to enable, delete to revert.
     
    Additional Note
     
    This mod was separated in 2 parts: one for prop replacement, the other for flora. You'll notice there are 2 flora replacement files: Maxis Tree Flora Replacement Regular.dat and Maxis Tree Flora Replacement Enhanced.dat. They both replace the same trees but the "Boost" version is twice more effective against pollution and the radius has been increased too (originally -2 over 2 tiles, improved to -4 over 4 tiles). Choose one and delete the other. Should you keep them both for whatever reason, the regular version will override the enhanced version.
     
    Regular or enhanced?
     
    I didn't have the time to test this extensively, The use of enhanced version in an existing region may trigger undesired effects related to pollution. Therefore I advise to avoid it's use in such circumstances. However if you start fresh, you should have no troubles using the enhanced iteration as long as you keep it in your plugins (and do not swap for regular every now and then).
     
    Fortune may favors the bold!
     
    Dependencies
     
    BSC mega props cp vol 01
    BSC mega props cp vol 02
    BSC - VIP girafe honey locust (only Grfe_props_pack_LE_HONEYLOCUST.dat is needed)
    BSC - VIP girafe chestnuts (only Grfe_props_pack_MM_chestnuts.dat is needed)

    VIP orange aesculus (only VIP_Or_Aesculus_Props.dat is needed)
    VIP orange fagus (only VIP_Or_Fagus_Props.dat is needed)
     
    ! To avoid brown boxes, be sure to have the latest version of those files.
     
    Credits
     
    -thanks to Girafe for the superb tree models;
    -thanks to blunder for sharing his knowledge and many 0s;
    -...and thanks to _marsh_ for the original idea!

  22. Maxis Parkings Override

    Have you grown tired of those Maxis textures on your lots? Here's another little mod - a texture replacement actually - that will replace every occurence of these too much seen parking textures with newer textures.
     
    The mod is separated in 2 parts, one for the $ wealth level and the other for $$-$$$.
     
    Also, as can be seen in the mosaic, dimensional changes were kept to a minimum to avoid misplaced props issues, so things should run smooth on that side too.
     
    Installation
     
    To use this, simply toss the folder in your plugins. I'm unaware of other texture mods of this kind so anywhere in your folder should be fine, but note that a few textures are from the BSC texture packs, so if you use them ensure the mod loads after.
     
    More!
     
    Now that the textures are updated, how about updating the Maxis cars that sits on them? I strongly recommend you to get the Car Automata Pack 1.0 or any of mikeseith's car replacements available here on the STEX. Goodbye outdated Maxis parkings
     
    No dependencies
     
     
    Credits
     
    - thanks to Jim for the amazing textures which have been used as a base for $$ & $$$ parking replacement.
    - thanks to Shy Dude for suggesting shaded textures

  23. SAM 1 Override

    Here is the SAM1 override - a little mod that will reskin your SAM 1 textures and display new props for your greater pleasure! A small variation willl occur on some textures and props (as can be seen on screenshots), depending of zoning.
     
    Not much else to say, but keep in mind that SAM 1, despite how it looks, does not have parking functionality: it's only purpose is eye-candy.
     
     
    UPDATE 1.1
     
    A fellow member brought to my attention a problem with the plugin - possibly due to the use of HD props and its incompatibility with software mode. For those who use software rendering and/or prefer to use SD props, a new iteration of the SAM 1 override has been created. The mod is now divided in 2 distinct folders: one for HD, one for SD. Please only use one at a time.
     
    What's in the packs?
     
    HD Props pack
     
    SAM - 1 - Parking Lots Textures.dat: contains the new textures specific to the HD setup
    SAM - 1 - Type21.dat: T21 files for HD car props
    Bollard.dat*: small post model
    Grfe_Cars_family_props.dat*: turns those bootiful car props into bootiful family timed props
    Lot Textures.dat: lot textures for overriding SAM1 - style parkings
     
    SD Props pack
     
    SAM - 1 - Parking Lots Textures.dat: contains the new textures specific to the SD setup.
    SAM - 1 - Type21.dat: T21 files for SD car props
    Bollard.dat*: small post model
    Lot Textures.dat: lot textures for overriding SAM1 - style parkings
     
     
    * files already used in the overhanging parkings: if you have the overhanging parkings in your plugins, you can delete them.
     
    Installation
     
    Must load after the NAM. You can also replace the texture and T21 dats directly in the SAM folder if so you desire.
     
    Dependencies (all optional beside the NAM - not having these will not trigger BB's)
     
    NAM with the Street-Addon-Mod installed
    BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol 01
    BSC - VIP girafe carpack vol. 1 & 2 (HD version only)
    Neko Prop Set vol 03 (only Neko_Fence_Black_2m.SC4Model and Neko_Fence_Black_2m.SC4Desc are needed)
     
    Strongly suggested for users of the SD version
     
    The T21 file that generates props use Maxis family cars as default; it's very likely you'll want somethng better to replace them.
    Choose one of the following replacement mods (they all supersede Maxis family cars), depending of your preferences:
     
    1960s car replacement Mod
    Japan car replacement Mod
    European car replacement Mod
    Jim's car prop pack 1.2
     
     
    Credits
     
    -special thanks goes to Mr. Jim, the author of this excellent and highly recommended Parking set. The textures used by the SAM1 override are based on his textures and inspired me to create this mod.  ありがとう JIM!

  24. Trees on roundabouts

    Here is a little T21 mod that will add seasonal flora (mostly trees) on your street and road roundabouts.
    Flora will show only when the roundabout is zoned, and if it was built prior to the present mod installation, you'll have to click with the street tool to trigger flora.
     
    Note that there are 4 different instances of trees for Residential & Commercial §§-§§§ and 2 different instances of flora for Industrial and Low-wealth R & C. You can "cycle" through the various instances by clicking on the street tool, but the selection will be totally random.
     
    Please allow some time for the flora to appear, as it's seasonal.
     
    Res & Com §§-§§§: chestnut, maple, ash, aesculus
    Ind & Low wealth Res Com: bushes (2 slightly different types).
     
    Installation
     
    Anywhere in your plugins, but the mod must load after the NAM as some exemplars share the same ID.
     
    Uninstallation
     
    Remove the mod from the plugins folder and click on the roundabouts where there's flora with the street tool to revert.
     
    Dependencies
     
    BSC - VIP girafe ashes (only the LE file is needed)
    BSC - VIP girafe chestnuts (v1.0)
    VIP orange aesculus
    BSC - VIP girafe maples v2 (v1.0) (only the LE file is needed)
    BSC - VIP girafe bushes (v1.0)
     
     
    This mod is still in beta stage

  25. RUM for RRW

    NAM v32 has added a new approach to rail - Real Railway - which is expected to continue to evolve. RRW looks great, is quite complete, is usable and easy to convert to. This mod adds a few extras to the NAM set and offers preliminary support for things that can be expected to change over time.
    Included are 10 NAM Viaduct skins, re-rendered Rail Tunnels and Crossings for all of my Streets as well as my first take on the Maxis railway crossings, NAM FLUPS and a partially complete T21 set for the plundere catenaries.
    The mod is packaged so that it is put into plugins exactly as it is in the zip (i.e.. Plugins/Z___RVT Modds/RVT zRUM for RRW) and you delete that which you do not use. Please refer to the readme.txt file included for more details.
    NOTE: If you have previously installed the Rail Upgrade Mod but now use NAM RRW then the RUM should be completely uninstalled - these files takes its place. The Original RUM is not compatible with RRW which is a completely different rail set.
    This mod will not work with any version of NAM prior to NAMv32. RRW must be activated. 
    rivit Feb 2014.
    Version 4 is an interim release adding new features and fixes identified since 2014.
