short version:
It seems to me weird the same dark imagearea seems to be used as both "bridge end declining to land" and "bridgewalk shaded by railing".

long version:
The dark grey half shaded area still seems to me weird. I see the dark part on the right in the original image:
Image
as representing the part of bridge which slowly declines from bridge height to land.

The depicted bridge looks to me like a stone archway like (5 tiles long bridge as example here)

Code: Select all

side view: /TTT\

Code: Select all

top view: =====
Then it doesn't make to me much sense why there should be such shading in the middle parts of tallside pieces. Especially in this image
Image
wouldn't make bit more sense at least to look like (if we say it it a also shadow from the railing)
Image
or rather even like (if we say it means only arched part of brdige)
Image
to which we can add _different shade_ for shade of railings so it becomes something like
Image

To sum it
- 1 Avelyn's version where in the middle is bridge arching down to its east segment
- 2 without arching to the east in the middle
- 3 without any arching except bridge ends
- 4 without any arching except bridge ends with new rail shade

Because with the shaded half (image 1) it seems to me it depicts a bridge that is arched also _in the way perpendicular to its direction_.

Code: Select all

side view: /TTT\

Code: Select all

top view:

instead of more reasonable

P.S. shown edited images were edited crudely, don't use them as final version for game

Nice touch-ups, Detros. I think thaf shading definitely looks more realistic.

The size of railing may be more clearly visible if the light source is not directly east but rather in, say, southeast. Then those railing shades would get diagonal.

The shades make more sense now, thanks.

What about filling the squares at the top of railing corners with the player colour? Would it be more visible?
Like so:

I can't think of anything else to be changed. :) So yes, I guess it's ready to be implemented. :)

I have some questions.
1.Will the new bridge be implemented in AOS?If yes, which type bridge will be replaced(bridge/stone bridge)?
2.What is the shape of bridge if the shape is this?
1 2
3 4
3.Can ships and unit larger than 1×1 can pass through/stand in bridges?

We need some images for all three wooden bridges too. This is just stone. :?

And maybe we can have some broken bridge images, so that in maps in which bridges are split apart like in the map, "Walls of Aceodiaen," from Kirk's carnage campaign. It would look like the bridge is broken, instead of wooden floors that settled in the water trying to reach out for each other..

Maybe if it has the ability to detect that it has ended at a water tile? :)
