inconsistant bridge simulation
« on: November 05, 2012, 05:16:34 PM »
Hi

has anyone noticed that the bridge simulation/testing is sometimes inconsistant. I mean, I could get different results everytime I run it. in some weak bridges I get different results of broken beams or no breaks at all.
the results seem to get worse as I speed up the simulation.

The other thing I have noticed is that draw bridges are very picky when I have 2 draw bridges touching in one detachable joint. they do not get alligned after the ship sails away. BCS was much better in that. back to point number one, I could get different allighnement results in different run tests.

anyone?

Version 1.2 is now available for download.  It fixes some bugs and changes the gameplay a little.  Let me know if it is any better.  Also if you have specific feedback for improvements or bugs please post them.

I am playing 1.2 now, and there is at least one issue that has not been fixed:

open joints.

whenever I try and move a segment indirectly, instead of attaching a piston directly to the open joint, the joint will not open at all,
and the bridge will fail and kill many innocent people.

please, please, please... pleeeaaase? fix this.. or explain why not.

thanks  :)

I agree that the open joints need more functionality.  They should be functional without needing a piston attached to them.  I will see if this can be updated for the next patch.  Bridge Construction Set is a great game and still provided the most bridge building possibilities and options which is what I always tell people when they ask.  It just does not look as nice as Bridge It or Bridge Project.  Bridge Project does have more materials then BCS, not less:

Wood
Iron
Steel
Cable
Suspension Cable
Hydraulics
Concrete
