Both RHD and LHD T21s are provided, along with a compatability file for the Rail Catenary Mod and the necessary path files to activate the crossing animations on OWR and RHW based networks.

As with all T21 mods, you must redraw the affected tiles for the game to change the props. In addition, if you find that the animations are not working on OWR or RHW crossings, you may need to bulldoze and redraw the crossing to force the game to update the paths. When driving a train in UDI mode, a graphical glitch may occur in which the crossing arms are drawn in both the vertical rest position and animating closed. This is an unavoidable, but harmless graphic bug and affects the Maxis crossing gates as well.

Compatibility

This download is only compatible with SimCity 4 "Rush Hour" or SimCity 4 Deluxe.

This mod is generally not compatible with other T21 mods that include rail crossings (except the NAM Core and components and vanilla Maxis T21s). A basic compatability patch is included for use with plundere's Rail Catenary Mod.

Installation

This package utilizes a Java-based installer (similar to the one used with the Network Addon Mod), and can also be opened and installed manually using 7-Zip or Keka.
To install it, you'll either need the Java Runtime Environment to run the installer--Adoptium's open-source edition is recommended--or a zip tool capable of opening the installer to allow manual installation. For Windows/Linux, use 7-zip, and for macOS, use Keka.

Once into the installer, after agreeing to the terms for the package, click to the Files tab to select which dependencies you wish to install (making no changes here will install everything). Then, click to the Location tab to set up an installation location (this should be the root of your My DocumentsSimCity 4Plugins folder). After this, click over to the Install tab, and click "Start installation" to begin the installation procedure. When installation is complete, the tab pop up a message indicating it, after which you are safe to close the installer.

**It is highly recommended to run the individual cleanitol files or the master cleanitol for the compilation with one of the following 3rd party cleanitol tools:

nos.17 Cleanitol (new tool)
BSC Cleanitol (old tool)

Un-Installing: To un-install this mod, simply delete the T21 files from your plugins directory, redraw every crossing to remove the props from your cities and finally delete the prop files.

Important notes: Installing multiple T21 sets without any other changes will result in only the last alphabetical set functioning. When using the mix-and-match option, please install all three sets for your driving side as well as the mix-and-match folder and follow the directions below.

    Each set folder contains the following files: (LHD files are prefixed "LHD-")
  • Maxis DTR Crossings.dat
  • Maxis GLR Crossings.dat
  • Maxis STR Crossings.dat
  • NWM DTR Crossings.dat
