The Network Addon Mod, or NAM, is a modification for SimCity 4 Deluxe (or SimCity 4 with the Rush Hour Expansion pack), which adds a myriad of new transport network items, ranging from ground light rail, to fractional-angle roads, to roundabouts, and much more. It also includes bugfixes to Maxis items and a highly optimized set of traffic simulator plugins, improving pathfinding accuracy and performance.

Some 13 years after the first release of the Network Addon Mod (NAM), the NAM Team is still hard at work on improving the transportation functionality of the classic city simulator, SimCity 4. One of the main features of the upcoming Version 36 release (yes, that's thirty-six--no decimal point) is the FLEX Turn Lane system, or FTL.

The FTL system is the next evolution in SC4 turn lanes, effectively acting as a replacement for the old Turn Lane Extension Pieces (TuLEPs), bringing with it new functionality and improved usability.

In order to showcase this new feature as we approach the release, and how it operates in-game, here is the first part of a trilogy of preview videos for this new feature.

You need Rush Hour. Preferably just buy SimCity 4 Deluxe since the Deluxe version = SimCity 4 + Rush Hour. Buy the one on Amazon and not the one on Origin since the one on Amazon already comes updated when you buy. Amazon also has better Terms when you buy so buy there.

I just downloaded simcity deluxe for my windows 10. I was watching some tutorials on youtube and I see extra stuff like roads with turning lanes. Is there a way for me to get all those cool updates and extras? I am totally a newbee and have no smarts when it comes to computers but I love simcity 4. Thank you...

Yes, they're included in this mod. Check out the Turn Lane Extension Pieces (TuLEPs) and the other Turning Lane options in the installer. Note that if you've seen video of someone automatically getting turn lanes at a Road x Road intersection, that feature no longer exists, as it caused serious interference with the Network Widening Mod and the Fractional Angle Roads.

The Traffic Simulator Configuration Tool does require the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which isn't installed by default in Windows. See Oracle.com

My game crashes when i use certain pieces. Any ideas how to fix it?

We'd need to know exactly which pieces and the circumstances leading up to the crash. There's a few known issues that we can't fix (i.e. placing puzzle pieces over stations and other transit-enabled lots). Stop by our official support forum at sc4devotion.com, and we can get you all set up.

Hello-
Just installed this on my MAC for the app store version of SC4 and I placed the Network Addon Mod folder and the z___mod folder in the plugins folder by going through the Library, however, only some of the pieces are in the game. The roads are improved and intersections are different but there are no turn lanes, and the new road and highway pieces are not there but all the railroad and mass transit are. Not sure what I'm missing.

When you say "placed", did you mean that you ran the installer, or did you manually pull apart the installer archive and plucked folders out of there? If it's the latter, that's not recommended and you probably didn't get everything. In any case, I'd re-run the installer, and make sure you're selecting the correct options.
