Bridges / Platforms
Allow for the construction of concrete slab platforms that would visually be similar the the large slab the shipyard has. These platforms would be constructed on the ground taking up one unit of depth in the game and would allow the ground underneath of them to be mined out safely without the platform collapsing. This would allow for structures to be built on top of underground ore deposits without preventing the ore from being mined. The most obvious use would be constructing bridges in advance to allow for better traffic of trucks and/or pipes across quarry pits and even allow for structures like coal power plants to be build on top of an existing coal deposit. The balancing feature of these slabs is that they must be made on top of already existing terrain as to not make it too easy to construct bridges of other islands or spanning gaps.
Would love to have that for oil refinery to pass some pipes underneath the platform.
I think if not this idea then at least on lesser side when you have one line mines and from both side you have walls and place bridge to cross. I try, in size it is fit, but when try to place bridge on top of it I get collision with wall warning. If it work below space can be used to move trucks, place pipes or belts.
I’m all for this but I don’t see why they shouldn’t be capable of water bridging.
yes please! bridges for all kinds of stuff.. vehicles, pipes, belts.. what ever. Optional structures rather then fixed objects like the current vehicle ramps.
e.g. a ramp up a plateau or a bridge from one coast of the near circle island to the other end without landfill. or a longer bridge over a few dozen pipes without burring them.
