I do have small bridges over the rivers to allow access for the bannies, but I am building on a huge lake. It's a small map, "Lakes". Plenty of room.

Does the boat have to go under your bridges at any point in its journey? And which bridge have you used? A pic might be helpful.

Building my first water town. Set up storage, stock piles, etc. Added a general trader, and stocked that. But trading boats go right by it. It's connected correctly, and open space in front, and one side. See pic. Why won't the trading boats go to it?
I have used it in another game, on a river, worked just fine.
Any thoughts?

What type of map are you using, and do you have any bridges over your river?

I do have small bridges over the rivers to allow access for the bannies, but I am building on a huge lake. It's a small map, "Lakes". Plenty of room.

Yes this could be still causing issues, I have tried as I may to get these modular jetty bridges to work correctly with boat travel issues, but it seems to still be haunting me.  :D
Stone Bridge is fine as I could use a 2 tile wide bridge to manipulate, hence the zig-zagging of the banished citizens on some of the parts:
Code: [Select]
String _pathBitmap =
"_#
#_";
Code: [Select]
String _pathBitmap =
"_#
__
#_";

citizens will travel diagonally to the next _ tile. with # being 'out-of-bounds' for them.

With the jetties I will need to make a variety of 'normal' drag point-to-point jetty bridges. If I can get it to work without needing to land on a shore, even better! :) but, my last attempts wouldn't work (i tried with DS Stone Bridge also...).


Tailor & Blacksmith are on the list :) I want too do an update again for the mod and tidy a few things up.
I suggest using DS Stone Bridge with the Jetties as it has a workshop.


@twilightbreeze , could you give me the map seed # & terrain / start options?

Ok, map seed is 807401430, I'm actually playing a medium size map, with your terrains set to "Lakes" and starting condition "Gold Seeker". Oh, yeah, I'm playing The North.


Don't forget a hospital and school house.  :D

I find the idea of a village on the water where the villagers might spend their whole lives never going on flat land, except the few that work as farmers, hunters, etc, fascinating, kinda like the old London Bridge in one of it's heydays. People lived and worked on it, and many never even crossed off it their entire lives, they didn't need to.

@Discrepancy I can report that my boats will not go under your modular stone bridge. They will go around if they can, even if it is a longer trip. Your drag-able stone bridge doesn't cause any problems, though. It's a CC Lake Waters map.

I don't know what causes this problem. Maybe it's something to do with CC Lake Waters maps? Maybe it's lakes in general that confuse the pathfinding AI. It's a pity because your modular bridges are great. Wish I could use more of them on the river too, but if I do that boats won't stop at my ports.

that is concerning...
I tested this with vanilla banished and ds stone bridge and did not have an issue.
It surely must be something with CC, or lake maps... I will have to check with my own.

I did a bit more testing. CC Lake Waters map, with CC and vanilla trade posts, although I have also tried your trade ports in previous games, all with the same results.

It doesn't matter if the modular bridge is upstream or downstream from the ports, if the boat HAS to go under the bridge then the boats will not stop at the ports. They will go under the bridge but they will simply go directly to the map exit point, not stopping at ports.

If there is an alternative route and the boats don't have to go under the bridge, they will find it and use it. In this case the boats will stop at ports. Alternative routes can include Red's canals.

Oddly, Red's canal pieces with foot bridges DON'T prevent boats from stopping at ports.

So it's a bit of a mystery why Red's canal bridges work but your modular bridges don't work. People walking on Red's bridges do the little diagonal thing, too, just like they do on your modular bridges. Red's canals create water where there was land, but your bridges go over existing water. Perhaps the answer is in there somewhere?

I do use the something fishy mod, which alters fish growth rates. Not sure if this is important as I've tried a game without this mod and it didn't make any difference, although that was using the old modular wooden bridges, not the new stone ones.

the citizens needs _ _ _ _  as caracters to be able and allowed to go on that tile. a boat cannot go on these tiles.
the boat needs ##### as caracters to be able and allowed to go on that tile, citizens cant go on those tiles.

we all know how the game loves to cut corners....

_#_#_#_#_#_#
#_#_#_#_#_#_

is the best way for both to pass, it s just a silly to see citizens zigzag ^^
but that is only good when we dont know how to make the game acting like a real vanilla bridge.

There must be something more to it because as I mentioned, Red's canal bridges work fine but DS modular bridges stop boats from visiting ports. Yet they are both working on the same zig-zag principle. Unless it's map specific? But that still doesn't make sense because one works and one doesn't. It's a mystery.  :(

The bridges are still great though. Just have to be careful where I put them.  :)

I think the jettys make a cute and easy cheap bridge.
