For some reason, I have been in love with bridges, and would like to find some cool bridge designs. If you have any please post a picture. Any type of bridge, small ones that cross water or large ones that cover a major valley. I had a really nice design that I liked a lot but ever since 1.5 stairs fail... It was very simple and was half-steps with stairs on the edge. Well I look forward to seeing your bridged. :D

Good Designs:

I do a lot of road building, so naturally I end up making a lot of bridges too. I'm not a very talented builder overall, so my styles are quite simple, but every time I like to try something new and different.
I hope these screenshots aren't too many.

This is a little bridge with bricks. I orignally wanted it to be a bit longer, but the gap I was trying to cover was too short.

A rather simple bridge over water.

A wooden bridge that "floats" on the water.
Posted Image
And from the side
Posted Image

Another bridge that crosses a bay.

This particular design for the accents on top is very bad because it forces you to walk in a straight line, otherwise you keep bumping.
Posted Image
It cuts through the pillar of another, taller, bridge.
Posted Image

An EXTREMELY simple one, it's as basic as it gets.
Posted Image

The big one seen from the side.
Posted Image
And from the top.
Posted Image
This is the part where it descends.
Posted Image

I try to get artsy-fartsy with the pillars occasionally.
Posted Image

I also try to make them look pretty at night. This is an overview of some of those bridges at night.

Those are nice, I really like the ones with the "artsy-fartsy" pillars.

This thread just renewed my minecraft interest 100%. Shame most of my world is flat. Guess I could bridge the space between my watchtowers :Sheep:

Lol.

I also found another cool design: at about 28 seconds in there is a really nice bridge in the background. and at 35 seconds in you can get a closer look.

i really dont do bridges.
I make a tower to the max sky limit with ladders, and make paths spreading out in different directions.

Awesome ideas (not mine):

The Aether
Oceancraft
Geocraft
Farmcraft

Google these to find out what they are!

those paths are bridges, just not with too much detail.

I haven't really made bridges either, but I have four sky-ways leading off of my main base's roof to other locations...they bridge over land...does that count?

I recently made a walkway of out glass and cobblestone in the Nether, as I am going to make a bio-dome using INVedit water and grass. I have to say, enclosed walkways through lava-falls are awesome. Try building some stuff there, just watch out for Ghasts, lol.

I think they should make a whole new category for you guys and you're abnormal bridge fetishes.

LOL JKS I LOVE BRIDGES, TOO.

The best thing is, that although they preform such a simple thing - they can be made to look SO. AWESOME.

Ideas for Bridges:

ECO FRIENDLY BRIDGE:
Not lit by torches, or fire. Just natural blocks, such as lava. Or Glowstone.
Made out of wood or dirt.
Must be pure awesome.

It doesnt even have to be a bridge, it can be an airborne pier. So you can see an amazing valley, etc...

I love bridges... Must I say more?
