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 32--January 14, 2014

NAM 32 is a full package, which improves upon the earlier NAM 31.2 release and NAM 32 Pre-Release.  Note that the NAM requires a retail copy (disc or digital) of SimCity 4 Deluxe to run.

  • The NAM Elevated Viaducts for Roads, One-Way Roads, and Avenues are now available in a draggable form, at both Level 1 (7.5 meter) and Level 2 (15 meter) heights, complete with FLEX Height and On-Slope transitions.  Overpass situations involving one or more diagonal networks are not yet supported, and will not be available until a future NAM release after Version 32.
  • Elevated Rail-over-Avenue and Elevated Rail-over-NWM Road-4 dual-networking support has been added, complete with a new station supporting both networks.
  • The initial phases of the RealRailway (RRW) system have been added.  This feature must be selected as part of a custom install.
  • The RealHighway (RHW) system has been expanded to include the QuickChange interchange system, which blends the RHW's modularity with the ease of Maxis Highway construction techniques for certain situations, which will be expanded in future NAM releases.  Additionally, several new types of FLEXRamps are available--please read the instructions in the description text.  FLEX Transitions have also been given stability improvements for certain situations.
  • Coupled with the RHW system, the NAM now offers Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) functionality, including stations.
  • Transit station functionality has been further improved, including the beginning of the implementation of the SLURP, which will gradually raise all transit stations to NAM standards.
  • The NAM Controller Compiler has been included with the installer, with which it now communicates, ensuring that only the installed features are incorporated into the NAM Controller, reducing file size and load times.
  • About 50 bugs reported since the start of the NAM 32 Pre-Release have also been squished, including some that had been present since earlier versions of the NAM.  It is highly recommended that users update to the latest NAM in order to enjoy a more stable experience.
Network Addon Mod - Version 32

Installing over previous versions: NAM 32 may be installed directly over top of any previous NAM releases. It is a full release, not a patch or a hotfix. All
future updates are planned to be in full package form, and there are no plans to issue patches or hotfixes in the future. Please also note that the NAM Team only provides
technical support for the most recent version, which, as of this document, is NAM 32. We cannot assist users of the NAM 32 Pre-Release, NAM 31.x-series release, or earlier.

Special Thanks: The NAM Team would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the members of the community who helped test the NAM 32 Pre-Release, offering feedback and helping us locate and solve bugs.

In general, it's hit and miss with the re-released Mac version. It has some bizarre quirks, including a limit on the number of files that can be installed before freezing/crashing becomes prevalent. That limit gets absurdly low if (inexplicably) you are not connected to the internet while running the game.

No, it isn't possible. The game was not designed for that, and there's nothing we can really do. The inflated population figures that the game gives for residences, however, does create a sort of "ambient population" that has the same effect as what you're describing, however.

What exactly do you mean by "nothing happens"? Is the game not loading? Or is it just not seeming apparent that the NAM is installed? What OS are you using?

There are some known situations that will cause crashes. The best known is the one that occurs when you hover a network puzzle piece over a transit station of the same type.
