One joint is OK for performance but game should really check cables against compression =)

I think concrete would rock if they made it analogous to cable, except for compression instead of tension.  That would allow some crazy-cool bridges to be made.

"concrete would rock" - or use stone = rock, that would concrete...

The idea would be that concrete could be as strong as cable, cost as much as light steel (or cable) and only take compression.
Btw, Recent research suggests that Pontifex cable can take compression if you can work with the free joint in it - as falkon announced he did (and showed to me privately) with one of the complex levels.

Like cable cheap or like cable strong for one type of force. I think that it would have to be pretty expensive, well not tooo expensive... anyway, it couldn't be as cheap as cable, but i dont think that's what you meant.
