Version Version 36
331,853 DownloadsThe 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.
Version Version 36
16,672 DownloadsNOTE: Due to some technical issues, the file is not directly hosted on the Simtropolis server. The download button presently will take you to an off-site, registration-free mirror at ModDB, which can also be accessed here. We hope to have the file available directly through the STEX again shortly, and apologize for any temporary inconvenience. 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. INSTALLATION This is the Mac version of the NAM. For the Windows version, see here. NOTE: Due to limited team resources and a lack of familiarity with the Mac version of the game among current NAM Team members, Mac-specific tech support is extremely limited. The best resource for Mac-related inquiries is the Simtropolis SC4 Mac Users Board. The NAM installer on the Mac platform is essentially the Windows installer contained within a Wineskin wrapper. This allows Mac users to have largely the same experience as Windows users in installing the mod, though there are some quirks because of this. When one initially opens the NAM Mac package after downloading, there will be two items present: read-first-nam36.html and NAM36MacWrapper.dmg. Double-click the file "NAM 36 Mac Wrapper.dmg". Once the .dmg file has expanded, double-click NAM36MacWrapper.app to execute the wrapped NAM installer. When you navigate through the installation process, the installer will show a popup message asking whether you are trying to port the NAM to a Mac. Select 'Yes'. In custom installation, the installer allows you to change the default path of the installation. DO NOT CHANGE THE DEFAULT PATH. The default installation will end up in "~/Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/Network Addon Mod". If that is where your plugins are located, everything is fine. Though, if not, you will have to move the folders "Network Addon Mod" and "z___NAM" into your actual plugins folder after the installation process finished. (Advanced users will want to create a symlink at "~/Documents/SimCity 4".) The reason why this is necessary is that, currently, some of the installation paths of the NAM cannot be changed which therefore would always end up in the default location. Hence, this approach ensures that your installation does not miss essential files. The location of the plugins folder is "~/Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins" for the Steam and disk version, whereas it is "~/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.simcity4.appstore/Data/Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins" for the App Store version. To reveal the Library folder in your home folder, in Finder, open the "Go" menu and hold the Option (Alt) key. The Library folder will then appear in that menu. During the installation process, the installer will display a popup message reporting that it failed to build a custom controller. Ignore this. You will get a full-featured controller. The effect of a large controller file is not as serious with the Mac rerelease as with the original Windows release. The reason why the controller compiler fails is that it is Java-based and, even if you have Java installed on your system, it cannot interact with the wrapped installer, at this point. Advanced users, who want a custom controller, may run the stand-alone version of the compiler (see point B below). After the installation process finished, copy the folders "Network Addon Mod" and "z___NAM" into your plugins folder, if it is not in the default location, as described in point 4. Also take note of DatPacking situation, as it pertains to a bug in the Mac port of the game. Enjoy the NAM. REQUIREMENTS NAM Version 36 will work with all versions of the Mac port, except for disc copies running the Aspyr Universal Binary Beta Patch. 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 12 1/2 years the mod has existed.
