# Network Widening Mod

Technical specifications for the Network Widening Mod are located here. This page shows values, attributes and level of compatibility with other components of the NAM that are useful for end users and developers alike.

Refer to the Network Widening Mod feature guide to understand how to use these components.

The contents of this document are undergoing revision and are subject to change.

## Network and FLEX Piece Capabilities

### Key

Yes | This particular feature can be constructed, with minimal (if any) limitations. |

Partial Support | This particular feature can be constructed, but not in all instances. Details will be given as to what is/is not possible. Partial support may be for intentional design reasons (such as realism or general unfeasibility), or simply because the feature has not been fully developed. |

Limited Support | This particular feature can be constructed, but only in extremely limited circumstances. Instances that are possible may be listed, insofar as it is possible. Use at your own risk. |

No Support | This particular feature cannot be constructed. This restriction could be for intentional design reasons (such as realism, general unfeasibility, or game limitations), or simply because it has not yet been developed. |

### Additional Notes

**T-End Min**: If the given network is to end at a T-intersection, this value is the minimum number of total lanes that needs to be on the cross network. For instance, while an RD-6 (T-End Min = 3) can end at an ARD-3 (3 total thru lanes), it cannot end at a Road (2 total thru lanes). Center lanes on TLA networks do not count toward the overall figure (i.e. the TLA-5 would be considered to have 4 lanes total in this instance).

**T-In Max**: If a cross network ends at the given network in a T-intersection, this value is the maximum number of lanes on the cross network heading inbound to the T-intersection (half the network, in the case of a two-way network, the full network if one-way). For instance, an AVE-2 can have an Avenue or RD-4 end at it (AVE-2 T-In Max = 2, while the Avenue and RD-4 have 4 lanes total, 2 heading inbound to the intersection), but an OWR-1 cannot (T-In Max = 1). Center lanes on TLA networks do not count toward the overall figure (i.e. the TLA-5 would be considered to have 4 lanes total in this instance).

**OxO**: OxO stands for “orthogonal x orthogonal”, and refers to a situation where both networks are orthogonal (in a straight line) along the game’s grid, intersecting perpendicularly (at 90° angles at all corners).

**OxD**: OxD stands for “orthogonal x diagonal”, and refers to a situation where the given network is orthogonal (in a straight line) along the game’s grid, and the cross network is diagonal (running at a 45° angle).

**DxO**: DxO stands for “diagonal x orthogonal”, and refers to a situation where the base network is diagonal (running at a 45° angle), and the cross network is orthogonal (in a straight line) along the game’s grid.

**DxD**: DxD stands for “diagonal x diagonal”, and refers to a situation where both networks are diagonal (running at a 45° angle) along the game’s grid, intersecting perpendicularly (at 90° angles at all corners).

### Bridges

Refer to the

Bridgessection of the Network Widening Mod feature guide for a list of bridge styles that are available.

All NWM networks, with the exception of the TLA-7 and AVE-6, are capable of creating bridges, though some do not presently support bridges (nor does it make sense for them to support bridges, i.e. TLA networks).

NETWORK | Base Network |
---|---|

TLA-3 | No support |

AVE-2 | No support |

ARD-3 | No support |

OWR-1 | No support |

OWR-3 | One-Way Road |

NRD-4 | Road |

### Tunnels

Due to the nature of the override networks, tunnels for Network Widening Networks are not possible.

## Network ID Assignments

The Network Widening Mod uses the following ID ranges:

Network Range | Purpose |
---|---|

`0x5100 - 0x51FF` | Current NWM range |

`0x7100 - 0x71FF` | LHD Path remapping range |

Within the Network Addon Mod, the Network Widening Mod and related features (i.e. RealExpressway) occupy the entire 0x51 range.
