    You need to pay attention to the pillars of the bridges.
    Maybe you use other bridge types, too...

    I don't know if I agree with regards to the bridge pylons. In my opinion, the shear amount of time and tedious nature of bridge building means some exact points of realism are struck from being necessary. By default, the angles you are able to view bridges seem at odds with getting them exact. Especially using RHM, I mean you get one bridge going one direction perfect and the rise/run of the opposing direction is different, even more so the closer it is to the first bridge. When a bridge goes over a highway, I am more concerned with it's height, alignment and natural rise/run. The pylons are a toss-up.

    I disagree, Kurtis Edwards, of course it is hard to achieve, but there are many
    other things that are much more difficult. Getting bridges in the right way is a rather easy task
    as long as the distance between the bridge ending points is long enough, which is given here.

    Bridges are easy, if we're talking on those lines. I never stated they weren't. I just think there are plenty of other 'more important' areas that can be concentrated on other than pylons over road lanes. Sure, if its glaring, I'll make sure it's spot on. There's plenty in CitiesXL that can be a toss-up between what one views as realism, or if the patience in achieving it is worthwhile. I, personally, would not dock any points for road pylons.

    I hope u do complete this city as it looks fabulous.. regarding the PC crashing.. i've noted that many whom use custom maps are reporting that the pc crashes after they had done some work in the city. Maybe this is the reason?

    Early observations show that the custom maps have a tendency to being corrupt after saving multiple times. It has happened to me on a number of occasions. If thats the case, then its a bummer coz the default maps arent really eyecatching to say the least. Maybe others who have used customs maps and not have an issue can share their thoughts as well??

    Call me lazy, but the custom maps also typically come with full resources. LOL. The game maps are superior if you wanna build specialized/Resort maps. But, I go agree, custom maps are generally so much better.
