Hi Guys.

I have a problem with roads.

1. I can't connect two ends of roads together if they are on diffrent terrain levels. Whe one of them is a little bit higher or lower they won't connect. (Pic1)

2. When i build a road and terrain is changing, for egzample is lower then road is makeing someting like bridge, to stay on the same level. It won't fit to terrain like sreets or avenues.(Pic2)

3. And smethinmes when terrain s changing (probably is higher than road) it turns red and telling me "filed smoothing terrain". (Pic3)

SimCity on my older computer doesn't have this problem but  have there older version of NAM (maybe 2014?). Now i have my new laptop and i started SimCity and NAM on December 2017, so it's probablu newest version of NAM.

Please help. I don't want to have no roads in my city. :(

Very thankful Paul:)

This isn't really a NAM issue, so I've moved this topic to a more appropriate place.

These errors occur when the game is unable to terraform areas automatically to allow roads/streets etc. to connect. Since the differences in terrain here aren't really big, it looks to me like this is the result of installing a very restrictive slope mod. You can try to remove the roads leading up to such intersections, flatten a few tiles (3x3 should be fine), build the intersection first, then connect the roads. This should allow for the slopes to work normally. Otherwise remove the slope mod in order to build these networks without such restrictions.

When I said it's not a NAM issue, that's because the NAM does not include such slope mods which affect this behaviour.

  • Thanks. Probably I'd must download some MOD as a depedency of something other stuff. It's sad, becouse I probably won't find it in my plugins. Maybe someone will find me solution how to find something like that in my plugins or what Mod could it be?
    Thanks anyway. :)

    You could search for the following file names in your Plugins:

    Without changing whatever you've got in your plugins, I'd do this to get those roads connected:
    1. Remove the road coming down the hill several tiles back up from where it ends now, maybe even all the way to the top of the slope.
    2. Run the road at the bottom from right to left to the tile where you want it to join the road running down the hill. On the hill side of that tile, make one road dot to flatten the tile next to the road where the hill road will run across just before it joins the left right road. By road dot, I mean hover only over that one tile and drop one road dot onto it. This should not connect the road dot to the left right road, but exist as a separate piece of road next to your road. Doing this will make that tile the same height as the road tile next to it, and will level it also. (This is a great way to level out swaths of terrain precisely and control how intersections will connect. You can extend that flat plane as far as you can, making more such sequential dots tile by tile in any direction from that point. You won't be doing that here, though, just the one dot.)
    3. From one spot up the hill from that flattened empty tile now run a rail line up the slope to one or two tiles away from whatever point you removed the hill road back up to. Especially if you have a slope mod installed, the rail line should create a nice smooth, even grade up the hill between your two intended connection points.
    4. Delete the rail line.
    5. From bottom to top, run your road. it -should- create one flat spot at the bottom where you already flattened one tile, and follow the nice smooth rail line up to the top.
        You can tweak more than once how far up the hill you run the rail line to smooth it to get the result you want, and then drop your road into that spot.

        -Cori Edit: The question in this post is completely outdated due to a much newer version of NAM being available. Skip down to the question by @Eusebio Ptolomeu and the replies by @jeffryfisher and @rsc204 for the most up to date information.

        Original post follows. (Skip it tho.)
        There is a big list of traffic controllers I can choose in NAM, but to me it's quite unclear which one the best is. The NAM readme file is not really clear about this as well. I have quite a big city (the region has 800.000 inhabitants now) and it is hard to get the suburbians to work in the downtown. Which traffic controller would be the best one between:
        - Standard
        - 2x Capacity
        - 5x Capacity
        - Better Pathfinding
        - Better Pathfinding 2x Capacity
        - Better Pathfinding 5x Capacity
        - Perfect Pathfinding
        - Perfect Pathfinding 2x Capacity
        - Perfect Pathfinding 5x Capacity
        And which setting would be optimal for the Colossus Addon Mod?

        Welcome everyone! Today I want to present the second entry of my earthworks tutorial series! Today we're covering the basics of building a main, two-lane road into a town across rolling/undulating terrain!
        I would appreciate if forum members could give me some feedback on the tutorial entry's format. This time I'm posting a slideshow video, as it was easier to make than wrestling image hosting sites with a huge upload that was gonna have about 70 screenshots.

        So, I've downloaded NAM and installed it successfully in my computer, however I would like to know what the "Network Addon Mod Controller", the last item in the Build Highways and Ramps section. It looks like some kind of plopabel object, but I can't place it, wherever I try. Is it just to show the current version of my NAM?
