Hello,

I am new to this forum but was wondering where I could purchase a copy of SimCity 4 Deluxe that will be compatible with the NAM?,

I understand that the Steam version no longer supports the NAM,

Please do let me know as I am unsure and really want to play the game without the terrible traffic issues,

Thanks

Steam

The Steam version is properly patched to Version 1.1.641 (the digital equivalent of 1.1.640 for disc copies) and will run the NAM without issue.  My Steam copy is indeed 1.1.641, so I can confirm this.

It's Origin's digital retail version that won't allow the NAM to install.  It's the same version number as unpatched disc copies (1.1.610), but because they swapped DRM methods (from SafeDisc to Origin), it altered the checksum of the executable in the process.  That blocks the patches used to get the disc version up to 1.1.638 and 1.1.640, thereby keeping the Origin version locked permanently to 1.1.610.

Strangely, it's only the people who purchased the game off Origin (or are playing via Origin Access) who are stuck with the nerfed copy.  Everyone who did a free CD Key redemption via Origin (something they've supposedly stopped doing) inexplicably got a properly-patched 1.1.641 digital copy. 

Often, whenever the subject of Origin comes up, the CD Key folks show up and tell everyone about how they did actually get a properly-patched copy, even after that disclaimer . . . but that has no bearing whatsoever on the situation with people who gave Origin money and got a defective copy in exchange.

      Hello everyone.
      Welcome to my BAT orchestra. Please take a seat  'cause this symphony is about to start!
      In this thread I'll show you some of the other projects I'm working on (besides of my freight train prop pack).  I want/need this space because sometimes I'm working on several things at the same time, and I thought it would be more comfortable to have all that in just one place, as many batters do.
      My finished projects are:
      Ok, enough introduction for now, let get this symphony begin!

      Hi, I've just started playing SimCity 4 again and downloaded the NAM - lots of great stuff thanks. 
      Question: I've built canals but for the life of me I cannot find the canal "stations". I've also looked in the ST Exchange. I'm not the best at computers and am hoping someone can provide a link. I've tried searching but so many results and not what I am looking for. 
      Many thanks
      (sorry if posted in wrong spot)

      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: The file is available directly on the STEX once more, thanks to the benevolent Dirktator!  ModDB also remains available as a registration-free mirror, which can also be accessed here.

      Installing over previous versions: If you already have a version of the NAM installed, NAM 36 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, unless you do not already have a version of the NAM installed.  For more information, see here.

      Tech Support: Since NAM 36 is now the most recent release, technical support for NAM 35 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 13 1/2 years the mod has existed.
