Yet another new cantilever bridge: download version 1.1 here!
-Can be used with Purno`s new bridges, you just need to place this grf after newbridges.grf, this replaces the unchanged cantilever bridge there.
-Support for OTTDs anything under bridges feature
-Best suitable for long and high distancles, this bridge cant be built in short distances.(Static version doesnt have this feature)
-this bridge isnt gray in ttdpatch, this will be fixed soon - fixed in 1.1 - hopefully

Yes I too felt the original Cantilever bridges were a little high. This one is a lovely effort :) Any chances of varying colours?

Great stuff is suggested from this screenshot, sir! Keep it up!

I like them lots. I actually don't use the cantilevers any more as they are so ugly. These are much better! Great work! 8)

Yeah, Id prefer just a grey or at least some more subtle colours.

They look much better as the original ones, great work. As others already suggested different colors would be great, maybe in blue or green. Keep it up :)

This would be a newgrf recoloring issue i think. I also think this red is too bright, gray-pale green-brown or blue bridges would be great, well i should explore the bridge newgrf actions...

Nice effort, the cantilever bridges really aren't an easy one to deal with, I tried some similar modifications here:

Don't forget to code these for Narrow Gauge as well as the usual Standard Gauge. 8)

Hmmm.. personally (being a bit boring), I think Id prefer grey ones. Is it possible to draw a sample one in grey to see how it looks? But yes, the other 2 you have done are an improvement :)

It's done with recolouring in TTD, with the appropriate NFO magic you can beat it into whatever colour you want.

Very good attempt at fixing those ugly Firth of Forth-clones Chris Sawyer put in the game. Now I wonder if bridges can be in company colour too.

Unfortunately not. We need full action 1/2/3 support for bridges! :twisted:

I agree with that, i have looked into purnos new bridges grf, and i found it very hacky, becouse the new bridges grfs is replaced the unused toyland grfs with actionA then the action 0 links those graphics to those sprites. This may end up grf conflicts, if more graphics sets use this method one time... Is there any chancle to improve this?
