No traffic using Diagonal Bridge

Hey guys ! This time a bit of a less drastic, but still annoying problem.


I downloaded the Diagonal Bridge Mod (wonderful mod by the way !!!), and succesfully - as far as I can judge - I built a beautiful diagonal avenue bridge the way the readme shows - with parallel 'shared tile' RHW-2s and the undertruss avenue bridge puzzel pieces. The bridge looks great, but nobody is using it ! I am positive that this is not just because the bridge is a detour (in fact it's not really because there's a stretch of highway leading to it) because when I remove a parallel existing bridge (so that the new bridge would be the only available route) they still don't use it. It's also not a RHW problem as the sims do use other stretches of RHW in this city.


When I drive over it in u drive it mode, it works fine, and the Draw Paths cheat also shows no problems. I will post a screenshot with and without draw paths enabled to show you. I have also given you pictures of the leading on and off ramps with the draw paths cheat on. I am pretty positive that I constructed those well so they should not be the problem. I use the avenue A-ramp puzzle piece.


What can I do to get my sims to use the bridge?

If you haven't got it, download the Extra Cheats DLL and install it directly into your Plugins folder with no sub-folder.  Start the game and open that city.  With a good view of both ends of your bridge type in CTRL+xDrawPathsCTRL+m and wait a few minutes.  You should see the pathfinder's connections to your bridge, and if any of them look wrong, please post a snap here.


To turn off the paths, the reverse is HidePaths.


This will either verify or deny that you are correctly connected to your network.
