Looks good enough for me, I'll leave the nickpicking to others.

I presume there'll be some stuff added surrounding the bridge, like (remains of) a road, possibly some houses etc.


Also, I note that the river bed doesn't look like a deep (if any) canyon at all.  Tongue

Awesome work Oscar! Not sure I want to venture out onto the surviving bridge with that huge crack..

Nice detail on the tower. Will one be able to climb up to the higher levels?

A road. No houses.

Engine limitation. We can only do so much with Torque, so you'll have to turn on your imagination and pretend that it's the deepest chasm you've ever seen in your life.

Yep.

Impressive as always, Oscar.

Are there doors on those levels? I don't see any, especially on the very top.

For an abandoned bridge falling to pieces, it does look a bit clean. Maybe dirty up the textures at the bottom and have the effect gradually lessen higher up?

hmm.. the canyons edges looks way too straight.. can you add some cracks maybe?


also little tiny pieces of grass and/or some bushes would help in the open terrain, it's too clean.

There will be ones, especially on the very top. It´s still a WIP, but we wanted to share it with you, to get some feedback. Smile

Yeah, I still haven´t added some "decals" with cracks, stains and marks. Good idea about the gradual effect! Grin

The terrain in this case is mostly a placeholder. It will be a little more natural, and the location will be based close to the tower, so you won´t see those huge wastelands of repetitive emptiness. Smile

Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

It looks great. This games graphics constantly surprise me, I really hope you guys it done this year. Anyway, I would suggest adding some color to the tower just to break the visual motonomy of yellow/brown. Just something small, here I used paint to show what I mean.

What will I be able to do in this location? Doesn't seem like I'm going to cross it.

What are those jagged metal pieces sticking out of the ends of the broken bridge? Kind of looks like iron reinforcements used for modern day concrete construction.

Indeed.

And, also, we see something commonly done in this kind of things but that's utterly impossible (at least from what I know): arcs with only one pillar... -_- Unless they have some kind of superglue or something.

But it's ok, it's nice to look at, in the end, even if it's not very much roman like. It's very medieval. The differentiated archs (larger at the center), the towers... But it's cool, yeah.

I don´t seem to get what you mean with that exactly... It´s very similar to the one posted here:

It's that broken arc, which couldn't possibly bear its own weight with only one pillar left, especially if it is made with roman or medieval construction techniques.

Oh, I see. That´s why it uses iron reinforcements. Our "romans" were very advanced. They even have techno-magic!
