Network Addon Mod Version 35 for Windows (November 5, 2016)
NAM 35 is a full package, which improves upon the earlier NAM 34
release. Note that the NAM requires a retail
copy (disc or digital) of SimCity 4 Deluxe to run, with the game version at a minimum of Version 1.1.638.
Note: If you purchased a retail copy from Origin (those who redeemed CD keys are exempt), there are reports that they have gone back to an unpatched and unpatchable digital copy of Version 1.1.610, which will not support the NAM.
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
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.
Mac users: A Mac release is available at ModDB. Please note, however, that the NAM Team currently as NO active staff running the Mac version of the game, and we are extremely limited in our ability to provide tech support. If you are having difficulty running the Mac port, the best advice can be found in Hamish's post over on the Simtropolis SC4 Mac Users board.
Installing over previous versions: NAM 35 should be installed directly over top of any previous NAM releases. For more information, see here.
Please also note that the NAM Team only provides technical support for the most recent version, which, as of this document, is NAM 35. We cannot assist users of the NAM 34 or earlier.
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.
This is the Windows version of the Network Addon Mod, featuring an installer.
