The easiest way to locate a conflicting RUL0 file would be to load up ilive's Reader, open the NetworkAddonMod_Controller.dat file in Plugins\Network Addon Mod (actually, any file will work), go to Tools > Plugins Analyzer on the menu, find "NetworkAddonMod_Controller.dat" on the list, and look at the results in the right pane of the window.  If the RUL file with the IID 0x10000000 (this is the RUL0 file) shows up in some shade of blue/teal/cyan, this indicates there is a conflict somewhere, and it will list all places where RUL file 0x10000000 exists in your Plugins folder.  You can then easily find and remove the conflict.
That's a nifty tool. Which version of iLives are you describing?

Here's the other two designs:





As of right now, those are the only way these are set up . . . they're FLEX-based pre-fab interchanges . . . but eventually, there will be some additional override code added to the ramp turn lanes to allow their use elsewhere.

They had been planned for NAM 37 originally, but there's been some really weird quirks in my testing that I haven't gotten to the bottom of as of yet, so right now, they're off the list, as much as I'd like them to be on there.

I'll tell you what would really make me drool all over my keyboard. I like this with the two left turn lanes under RHW, and I like what I see going on at REW. I am thinking that if I had an OWR-5 entering the intersections and OWR-3 exiting those intersections, that would blow my ever lovin' mind!

You won't be losing actual capacity by using MIS here.  The MIS and RHW-4 have the same per-tile capacity (the MIS listing is for a single-tile width, whereas the RHW-4 is for a dual-tile width).

Hmm... Maybe this setup needs some unique FTLs...

The proposed QuickChange Xpress (QCX) setup I showed awhile back features exactly that.

I can follow the steps using 0.9.3, which I recently downloaded.

The AVE-4 to TLA-3 transition is missing paths. I have a screenshot if one is needed...

Not seeing any problem with either issue personally:



I switched to a LHD setup and indeed there is a problem with the LHD paths. They could be missing or somehow corrupted. However, no issues with the rail crossings and so far as I know, nothing was added in the RRW code, such support was part of the original RAM project. In other words, you shouldn't need RRW installed to make these crossings. I'll try to sort a patch for the pathing issue in the coming days.

After a little digging, it appears that the IDs used for the transition are being redirected to "LHD IDs", something handled in the NAM Controller. Since such pieces should not need specific LHD paths, they don't exist and hence this is a LHD problem. For now, adding the attached file into the Network Addon Mod/Network Widening Mod folder will add a duplicate set of paths with the LHD IDs. However, the real fix is altering the controller code so these IDs don't get redirected in future.

I hope next version of NAM will fix everything and added something new. :D
