I am new to all of the mod's for Sim City and cannot figure out how to download them where trhey show up on my game. Is there a thread that has a step by step process of installing these? I really enjoy SC4, but would like to see what else it can do for me. Thanks!

Welcome to Simtropolis, newfdog27

Basically, the downloads come in 'zip' files that need to be unzipped and placed in the My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. From there, where it will appear in the game depends on the type of content it is. Check out Boggy's guide here (Link) for more information.

  • Ok so I think I installed the NAM version 29. How can I see if it is loaded onto my game? Do I need to start a new region? Thanks!

    No, just open a city and check the menus. If NAM has been installed, you should see additional menu icons for the added features - such as GLR in the Misc. Transportation menu and the raised road pieces in the Roads menu - just to name a few. If the menu items are there, just select them to plop the various items.

    Note: NAM is a little different than the regular download. The zip contains an setup routine that needs to be run, not just placed in the Plugins. Did you run the setup routine?
