Not sure I should put this here, but in the threads I found about SG stations behaving weirdly, references were made to the NAM so here goes.
The Clock tower station, although not present in my plugins, shows up as its footprint in blue, no building, and immediately causes a CTD if plopped -- it also seems to frack the rail menu, displacing other menu icons without showing up itself. BUT when I get all three problematic stations in my plugins (Clock Tower, Passenger Station, Simtropolis Station) everything works well. I don't notice any of the displacements of rails and platforms noted in the thread I followed. I assume it is because NAM 36 solved the problem. In said thread, @rsc204 pointed to a fix -- which I downloaded. I would like to know if I need it when none of SG problematic rail stations are in my plugins folder (esp. the Clock tower one) .
My companion plays on a Mac. I installed NAM36 on his Mac (completely forgetting I just had to slap my own folders in his plugins !!! But as he didn't want exactly what I have it was OK in the end, I guess.) As expected, we hit the plugins wall and will have to datpack the NAM. I downloaded JDatPacker but am always somewhat squeamish when using a new tool -- especially when said tool comes with a readme that is an electronic book (or at least DLs like one !) Should I use something else ? Whatever I use, are there special warnings, do's and don't's ? (I did take a little walk through forums ; my eyes are beginning to glaze over...)
While testing a TE enabled lot I noticed, that when using the NRD-4 road connecting to this lot, the traffic lights are steady green on all sides. When I change the NRD-4 to the standard avenue, the intersection lights work just fine. To see, what I mean, see the attached pictures. One side is avenue TE enabled, the other side is road TE enabled. Is this a normal behavior?
I am wondering if anyone can help me, I have two areas that are causing me troubles. I don't even know if what I want to do is possible. I'm trying to connect EL over Road 4 to EL over road (Maxis regular) crossing over an intersection, but it seems to elude me.
What am I missing? I have the current NAM, did not choose "alternate" for EL and do have the puzzle piece that is supposed to connect EL over road to either EL over Rd4 or Ave, but the EL doesn't line up on that piece with the EL over Rd4, so I'm a bit lost. I have LHD, if that makes any difference...
Also, in the second troublesome area, does anyone know how to connect EL over road, through at T intersection to just plain EL? I cannot get the puzzle piece to connect to the regular EL.
If the two pictured configurations I have set up at the present are impossible, does anyone have any suggestions as to a better method or configuration I might try instead?
Either way, thanks in advance!
