The SAM (Street Addon Mod - NAM) is one of those indispensable mods, adding a wealth of variety to street networks. But SAM 6 however was a little too bright for my tastes, so I've darkened it to reduce it's visual impact. This is one of those little things I often tinker with, I figured some others may find a use for it too.

On the way I've added optional support for the following:

  • Full EU Textures.
  • Additional crossing support for both PEG205 and RealRailway (RRW) crossings.
  • Modified many avenue and rail pieces to add grass to better blend in with your game.


First, note if you are updating from v1 of this mod, you need to remove that manually. Find the folder z____MGB Darkened SAM-6 Mod (assuming you used the default setup) and simply remove it.

Run the included .exe Installer, built with NSIS. It will allow you to choose from a number of options and then install the files you need, simples! If you don't like installers or are a Mac/Linux user, the option is there to open the archive with 7zip or similar. However it may be tricky to find the right options, not a lot I can do about that sorry.

By default this mod will install to the directory z____MGB Mods/Q - SAM6 Darkened. I highly recommend you DO NOT change this. It's been smartly designed to integrate with many other mods if left alone.

Users of the RRW Reskin will want to manually delete the rail textures after install, that's the file SAM 6 Darkened Rail - RRW.dat, otherwise you can overwrite it with the equivalent from RUM for RRW. (Note this is not yet in place at the time of writing). Please read the included readme, as always it contains important information. As for all my mods, after installation, you can find it in:

My Documents\SimCity 4\LEX_Downloads\MGB Mods

This is to avoid clutter in your plugins folder.


Network Addon Mod (NAM) with the Street Addon Mod (SAM), specifically SAM 6 selected.
