Title: Allow more Graphics for Bridges
Post by: The Transporter on September 25, 2012, 08:26:45 PM
The Idea is to allow 2 or 3 Graphics for the strait Part of the Bridge and 3 for the Pillars.
With more Graphics for the strait Part, it is easier and better to build bridges like arched bridges.
The new Pillar Graphics consisting of Head, Body and Base. At height 1 only the Head is built, at height 2 Body and Head is built. From height 3 and on all 3 Parts are built.
All this makes it easier to create realistic bridges. Currently we are really limited to create Bridges

It's on my increasingly long todo list this! Double height slopes really need changes to bridges to so was planning on making changes to bridges after double heights go into trunk.

We need more programers, so bad. D:

Maybe it's not doable, but it would also be great if the game could detect if another way goes through a pillar, so that pak maintainers can specify appropriate graphics.

I built this bridge for the pak128.german. The upper part of the pillar is defined as an roadsign. It was the first test to create a non standard bridge. It is not easy to build with the existing limitations various bridges.
