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 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 standard release version of the 36th edition of the NAM, NAM 36, for the Windows platform. Click "More" for installation details and a list of new features.
To install NAM 36, run the enclosed file "NetworkAddonMod Setup 36.exe", and follow the instructions. More details are in the enclosed "read-first-nam36.html" file.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, UNINSTALL YOUR PREVIOUS NAM VERSION 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.
The official support forum for NAM 36 is located at SimCity 4 Devotion, where the NAM Team is most active. You can find it here.
NAM Version 36 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).
Note that the Origin retail digital copy of the game is not compatible with the NAM, due to that service's decision to sell unpatched and unpatchable copies of the game. For more details, see SimTarkus.
