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.

The NAM Team is pleased to announce the official release of the 36th edition of the Network Addon Mod, NAM 36, for EA Maxis' 2003 title SimCity 4. NAM 36 is the result of nearly a year of development, further refining a project that has been continuously going for over 13 years, and adds a considerable number of new features to one's transportation systems, including the long-awaited FLEX Turn Lanes and Draggable Elevated RealRailway Viaducts.

New features in Version 36--September 13, 2017

  • New FLEX Turn Lanes (FTL) feature added, providing a more intuitive and flexible alternative to the old Turn Lane Extension Pieces (TuLEPs, now deprecated).
  • Draggable Elevated RealRailway (RRW) viaducts added at L1 (7.5 meter) and L2 (15 meter) heights.
  • One-Way Road Signalized Intersection and Turn Arrow Project (SITAP) expanded to cover intersections with FLEX Turn Lanes and Road-based multi-tile NWM networks.
  • Street Addon Mod (SAM) Set 11 - IndustrieSAM by mgb204 added, providing a new, industrial-style Street texture.
  • Draggable Wide-Radius Curve functionality added to all applicable Street Addon Mod (SAM) override networks.
  • RealRailway (RRW) FlexTrack functionality expanded to cover additional setups.
  • R5 radius Multi-Radius Curves (MRCs) added to the Road network.
  • Diagonal FLEX On-Slope Transitions added to the RHW, supporting 1 and 2-level transitions for the RHW-2, RHW-4, and MIS networks.
  • R4 and R5 radii Multi-Radius Curves (MRCs) added to the RealHighway (RHW) system, with support for the L0 RHW-2, L0 RHW-4, and L0 RHW-6S netwoks. Overlap ability also added to the ground-level R2 curves for the RHW, allowing for smoother loop ramps.
  • Diagonal MIS Connection support added to the One-Way Road Roundabouts.
  • Texture glitch fixed with the Euro version of the L1-L4 RHW-6S Type A2 FLEXRamps/DRIs.
  • Minor pathing fix to improve zone access on the TLA-7 network in the Network Widening Mod (NWM).
  • The compression scheme on the NAM Installer has been changed, making it such that the external 7-Zip SFX layer surrounding it is no longer needed.
  • New edition of the NAM documentation started, marking a return to the HTML format used prior to the NAM 31.x releases of 2013. Please note that due to the incredible scope of the mod, and the amount of time to adequately document features, that some sections may remain in an incomplete state.

NAM 36 Feature 1

INSTALLATION

To install NAM 36 on Windows, run the enclosed file "NetworkAddonMod Setup 36.exe", located in the .zip file, and follow the instructions. On MacOS, open the .dmg file contained within the .zip, and copy the "NAM36MacWrapper.app" file to the Desktop or another directory, and run it to install the NAM.

More details are in the enclosed "read-first-nam36.html" file, and on each platform's respective download pages.

Do NOT uninstall your previous installation if you are an existing NAM user. The NAM installer can detect your previous installation options by reading the folder, and as such, it is safe (and recommended) to install NAM 36 on top of your old version. If you remove the previous install, however, you may not remember exactly which options you had selected, which could potentially cause issues in your cities.

NAM 36 Feature 2

REQUIREMENTS

NAM Version 36 requires a retail disc or digital download copy of SimCity 4 Deluxe. Windows copies of the game must be updated to at least 1.1.638 (the version number for disc copies, with the EP1 patch applied). Retail download copies from Steam and GOG.com are pre-patched to Version 1.1.641 and can run the NAM right out of the box. Note that the Origin retail digital copy of the game is not compatible with the NAM, as it remains unpatched and unpatchable. See the Read First document for further details.

NAM 36 Feature 3

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.

been trying for days to try and make an interstate inter loop system, typically when two three lane highways intersect north, south, east and west... there really should be something for this as this IMOP also... its REALLY annoying we cant get acceleration lanes but thats just a kink i have and am a little annoyed with it... are there people still doing work or this mod? i could do a little asset creation if needed =)

If you're referring the game's default highways, there are indeed no acceleration lane options there, but if you look into the more advanced RealHighway option (which is the main focus of highway development in the mod), there's definitely options to have them. The NAM is indeed still an active project, with work on Version 37 ongoing--our homebase is over at sc4devotion.com.

Isn't there any way to download the files without the installer so I can just place in the Plugins folder? The installer program freezes and thus this is the only mod I am unable to install, while it is the one I want the most...

There isn't really a feasible way to do a manual install, unfortunately. There's just too many moving parts--particularly, options that don't get along with one another-- and it'd take incredibly detailed knowledge of both the game and the mod in order to successfully accomplish it.

What operating system are you running?

I see, that is a pity. I am using Linux, and executing the installer via wine (technically, that is also what Mac OS users do). Thank you for the reply!

We encountered another Linux user recently who had similar issues . . . while we're not really able to provide support for running it on Linux directly ourselves, there are quite a few helpful Linux SC4 players over on Simtropolis. One of users there had success with Wine 1.8 on Ubuntu.

The Mac version of NAM 36 has been re-uploaded after a minor tweak.

I don't have updated NAM (I use Nam32 now).
Is it available to Nam35 without Nam 33 or Nam 34?

Yes, absolutely. In fact, if you run the NAM 35 installer with your old version still installed, it'll detect your previous options, and automatically select them in your new install. I'd probably wait until NAM 36 is out to do your upgrade, however, as we are getting really close to release. I can't give a specific date (we don't know yet when, as it's dependent on the last phases of testing), but it is imminent.
