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.

New features in Version 35--November 5, 2016

  • New RealRailway (RRW) FlexTrack functionality, including draggable Fractional Angle Railroads (FARR) at three angles (FA-2, FA-3, and FA-1.33/1.5) and improved Single-Track Rail (STR) support.
  • Vastly improved adjacency stability for ramp-style RealHighway (RHW) FLEX Height Transitions, including many adjacencies with FLEXRamps and Draggable Ramp Interfaces (DRIs).
  • Several new draggable NWM transitions: NRD-4-to-ARD-3, NRD-4-to-Avenue, NRD-4-to-TLA-5, NRD-4-to-RD-4, Road-to-RD-4, TLA-3-to-Avenue, TLA-3-to-TLA-5, AVE-2-to-TLA-5, AVE-2-to-Avenue, TLA-7/AVE-6-to-Dual-OWR-3, OWR-4-to-RHW-8S, OWR-5-to-RHW-10S, and OWR-1-to-MIS. These transitions can either be built through the stub method, or (in case of different base networks), direct connection.
  • At-grade intersection support for the Road, OWR, and Avenue Viaducts, plus other stability and cosmetic improvements.
  • Multi-Radius Curve (MRC) functionality added to the L1 and L2 RHW-2.
  • A number of path fixes involving elevated RHW networks.
  • Support for at-grade RHW-4 x Avenue, RHW-3 x Avenue and MIS x Street intersections (OxO only), as well as improvements and additions to RHW-2 and MIS diagonal intersections with Maxis surface networks.
  • Proper P57-era RHW support for Moonlinght's Alternate El-Rail and Bullet Train (Shinkansen) mods.
  • Various fixes to the Maxis Highway Override (MHO), including improved RealRailway (RRW) support, support for moonlinght's Alternate El-Rail and Bullet Train, and Level Bridges for both L0 and L2 MHO networks.
  • Re-implementation of some multi-tile RHW and NWM starter pieces, to improve stability in preparation for future additions. Legacy code has been added to provide stability to older, unconverted starters.

INSTALLATION

To install NAM 35, run the enclosed file "NetworkAddonMod Setup 35 SFX.exe". This is a self-extractor that contains the actual installer for the mod, and is used to considerably shrink the size of the download (260MB vs. 1GB). Run it, and you will find the file "NetworkAddonMod Setup 35.exe" in the same folder. Run it and follow the instructions to install the NAM.

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 35 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.

REQUIREMENTS

NAM Version 35 requires a retail disc or digital download copy of SimCity 4 Deluxe, updated to at least 1.1.638 (the version number for disc copies, with the EP1 patch applied--most retail digital download copies are pre-patched to Version 1.1.641).

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, and to SC4 Devotion, which has graciously supported the NAM Team in its 10 years of operation (as of this month).

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

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.
