Can you connect a bridge to another city? And the Region Piks.

Recommended Posts

I was wonderin'... Can you connect a bridge to another city?

And... When you look at a region, it comes up as a bitmap. Is there a program that generates terrain on a bitmap? This one person was asking if you could make one in paint.

The only way to bridge between cities is to use an island that has enough land in both cities. Bridges cannot be continued outside a city boundary.

A region bitmap (greyscale) can be colorized by running it through the Landscape Designer. This is a very useful tool. It creates random maps and terraforms them. It can also manipulate various JPG files to view/repair them.

If you want to do custom maps, don't use paint. Use a real photo editor. Google for the GIMP which is a free editor very similar to Photoshop CS2. You should have a look here.

Actually, it could be possible.34.gif

After all subways and water pipes can connect to other cities, so why not use road tunnels?19.gif

Here is how you create a underwater for any one who is interested, You must fill in the area where you want to put your tunnel. Press and Hold Ctrl + Alt +Shift and click the god mode button. Use the Mountain Tool At the Edge of the land. Use the quick level brush to level from the top of the mountain and level it across the Water. Now drag your road across the the raised land from L to L . Then Save. Now dig out the land between the tunnel. You can use single road tiles to get the level around the entrances of the tunnel. Thank You. LLLLL+WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW+LLLLL LLLLL+WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW+LLLLL

These are the only *real* (and useful) connections from one city to another that the game allows:

1. Roads

2. Highways (both)

3. Rail

4. EL rails

5. Airport to airport

6. Harbour to harbour

7. Ferry

8. Waterpipes

......and High voltage electricity

......oups, I forgot Avenues......sorry.
