I don't want a complete answer, I just want a basic guideline on how to make a bridge for 'Medium 7'.
I just cant work it out.
I've even looked around the net for bridges that might work.

I just made an inverted arch of cable, with some beams of compression-resistant material to support the deck. Cheap (at least compared to the budget) and easy.

Edit: I recommend the forum of http://www.bridgebuilder-game.com/. The active bridge builders are there.
I rarely check this forum anymore. Feel free to send me a PM if you want my attention.

This Hard 6 bridge is very tricky, due to the low amount of money available. '<img'>

But still enough to build this (can be optimized) ':<img:'>

Thanks so much.  It was the lack of crossbars in those middle sections that made all the difference.  It both reduced the weight and gave just enough money to add a bit more support on the ends.  Excellent job.  I'll have to keep that crossbar thing in mind on future projects.

I tried something similar to your first solution, but couldn't quite get it to work.  Your 2nd solution is awesome, in that it doesn't look like it would even work.  Again, it's that lack of cross pieces that makes that work.  Good job.

I finished Pontifex and BCS will be next after I'm done with this one.

Now I'm stumped on Complex 2.  It's another iron one, and these just seem to get me.  Iron can barely hold itself up, let alone anything else.  '<img'>

Awesome.  That round one is pretty complex all right.  I went with the triangle version.  I was pretty close to that one, but didn't have those double reinforced corners.  Another lesson there.

OK. I made it past that one, and the next three.  Now I'm on Complex 6, and I am at a loss to understand what I'm supposed to do.

Some clarification of the direction and orientation of the vehicles would be helpful for knowing what to build where.

The description says, "Using iron, steel and hydraulics, build a bridge to pass a complex 7 phase test.  A truck drives from the bottom right to the top left tunnel.  Then, a truck drives between the two bottom tunnels and a boat passes underneath. A truck then moves back across the bottom, a truck travels back down and finally a car drives across the top."

My questions:
Does the 2nd truck pass by AT THE SAME TIME the boat is going under?

Which direction do the 2nd, 3rd and 4th trucks travel?

Which direction does the final car go?

How many times are the hydraulics triggered in the test, and when does that happen?

Thanks for all the help.  I'm almost done with this game.  Gonna get BCS at the end of the week.

Can't answer to that question at the moment, because i'm away from home with a laptop.  '<img'>
But i promise to reply tomorrow. '<img'>

------------------X------------------

OK! This is the right sequence:
1 - A truck drives from the bottom right to the top left tunnel.
2 - Hydraulics phase
3 - A truck drives to the left between the two bottom tunnels
4 - Hydraulics phase
5 - A truck then moves back (to the right) across the bottom and at the same time the boat passes underneath.
6 - Hydraulics phase
7 - A truck travels back down (from top left tunnel) and at the same time a car drives across the top to the right.
