DS Stone Bridge v1.2 (updated 05 Feb 2018)


DS Stone Bridge  -  v1.2  -  05 Feb 2018


Build a large stone bridge in your town. Mostly modular in construction, it can allow many variations and layouts.
The bridge walkways sit 1.37m above ground height.
The mod is large and has many parts. I suggest exploring everything first and then planning and laying down the bridge.
Some buildings come with a bridge walkway section as part of the model. Read the toolbar tooltips as they will give you more indication on use.

It does but it's hard to see in the water. If I remember right, you have to zoom all the way out to see it. I'm not sure if it works with that blue circle mod you're using.

Maybe someone else will confirm or correct me on this. I no longer have the map I was playing when testing this mod and it's going to be a while before I can start building the bridges again.

Anyway it should be seen on the ground. Vanilla fishing circle works fine.

This is a great set, Discrepancy!   Sometimes I would wind up with a map with so much water so just exited to find a map with more land.  But now I can better build onto the water, and with sturdy buildings.

I sent you a private message about this set but even though it said it was sent, when I look in my "sent messages", there is nothing.  So I don't know if the message really got sent.  Aside from thanking you for this set, something I said in that message is that the name "Stone Bridge" sounds like it is only a bridge.  Since it is so much more, if you ever thought to change the name, maybe "Stone Bridge Plus" would be good.

Just out of curiosity, was the problem there?

I adjusted more of the bridge piece templates MapDescription pathBitmap to allow boat travel (and more zigzag).
Plus I changed all the pathType to Water.

I tested numerous times, by itself, with my other mods added, the north, a few others and I had trade boats always stop.

I used all bridges.

the normal construction bridge,
the new drawbridge pieces,
the 2x2 or 2x1 Stone Bridge Extension, (**the 2x2 fishing spot will NOT allow boat travel, this was always intentional - perhaps this is what is catching players out?)
2x3 pillar piece, the end pieces when utilized with at least 1 2x2 or 2x1 extension it should allow boat travel.
I have also altered some of the house, storage and ramp pieces to do the same.
I have not tested with CC, so i'll be interested to see if players still have issues.

I have a couple more production facilities to build in Red's Editor's Choice mod, then a little testing on them, then I'll be able to test your new Stone Bridges. The map I'm currently playing on doesn't have any lakes on the river on it.

Will you be updating the wooden bridge set soon, @Discrepancy? They also block boats for me. I'm guessing you will be adding the water opacity to them sooner or later, too.

Success! The updated stone bridges let boats pass on a CC Lake Waters map.  :)

But it looks like there's a new problem, @Discrepancy. The stone bridge end fishing spot won't work. Workers are reluctant to go there, and when they finally do go there they do a bit of work and then idle endlessly. They basically get stuck there and can't leave. I need to investigate a bit more, but I built the exact same bridge in my previous game (using the same map seed) and the fishing spot worked fine. So something has changed in the updated version?

I love the water opacity on the bridge pillars. It's a small detail but it really makes a difference.  :)

Discrepancy, this is an awesome mod. But a couple minor and self-correcting issues with the v1.2 update.

In demolishing the End Fishing Spot a crate of fish was left floating in mid air. After rebuilding the crate was properly placed and removed per usual. But had I not rebuilt...

In rebuilding both the Tiny UnderHouse and Tiny UnderStorage buildings, the build versions are offset by one tile. Initial placement and final result are fine, but the build steps had me thinking I placed them incorrectly.

Thanks for all your great mods.
