In my opinion bridges are a very neglected part of the road infrastructure and I have the feeling there is not enough of them. While I understand that "it's all about that mud, bout that mud..." but seeing some more of them would be a nice idea. Fear not though I wouldn't like to see them as mere decorations. My ideas about them are as follow:
make them into difficult parts of the road leading to the objective (old players should remember a map added to ST at one point in time, it was a map with a long wooden bridge leading to the objective, it required some skills to drive it and was liked by many. It was removed as not being officially certified, the rumor has it that Pavel got really mad as it wasn't his map and he didn't wanted to see it in ST)
use them as block post and here I have two ideas:
A) make bridges on big rivers with barriers on both sides (like blocking posts) that would allow only unloaded trucks or maybe even only class A (or A/B) trucks to cross
make weak wooden constructions which would allow again only A/B class trucks only. These bridges would collapse if someone wanted use any bigger truck. (I know synchronization for all players)
- so finally It would be great if we had finally possibility of synchronized bridges, either as truck carried constructions or made of wood (logs)
I think an element as a bridge could add more flavor to the game so that before getting to place A we would need to make it possible or making the challenge of getting to the objective more difficult.
So what is your opinion?
