If I make a one tile width bridge could look something like this.

Lots of tourists walk over the arch way and the weight of them has caused a dip in places :mrgreen:

Doctor yesterday gave me new medication and it causes some dizziness and tiredness for a while til get use to them. so good excuse for me to close my eyes for a few hours.

Cheers

Had a break from coding to day and went exploring and visited 2 wooden road bridges to get photos of the pylons and abutments.
This bridge fairly high so had great pylons under it so can use this idea on my bridges now.

Hope also make some wooden abutments similar to this.

I not going to make Sydney Bridge 3 tiles wide or allow it to be as wide as they want as it hard to make the pylons look nice and looks ugly.

The single tile one above might be better, but will see what 2 tile wide might look and the pylons just for curiosity.

I'll have a break for a few days or so from the harbour bridge while and think about it.

With those to wooden bridge images about hope to use those as templates to re-do the pylons and abutments to the wooden bridges I already did. The wood work on those I did are a bit dark compared to the weather look on those in pics above so think I can improve them.

On Wednesday I going train riding if all goes well. If my bus runs on time, I have 4 minutes to get off the bus and to the Cardiff station to get a train to Hamilton. Hope that train also on time as I have 5 minutes at Hamilton to change to a train to go to Singleton where there are 2 bridges I want to photograph.

If I miss those trains, I just go somewhere else for the day. All costs the same $2.50 to travel all day on as many trains, buses and Ferry's I like in Sydney and Newcastle suburban and outer metropolitan areas.

When you start a game, towns randomly build a road bridge across rivers and water ways. What will the town do with the bridges I build 2 and 3 tiles wide?

It will not build them side by side, and if it did would it build them in correct order.

So looks like Sydney harbour bridge will have to be a one tile wide bridge.

I will make them full tile width to get a nicer effect with the Pylons and maybe have the footpaths on the outside of the metal work.

Shall see what I can do .. but be later in week before I do any more with it.

Cheers
