I had a small narrow bridge that I really loved.
It wasn't so much the bridge itself, but the location that made it so great.
In one of my friends servers I found a large open area that cut through the center of a mountain. It was a little large to be considered a cavern, but had a rock cover over top of it. But anyway, it had 3 waterfalls, one near each corner, and the waterfalls ran into a small lake that I had carved out in the center of the open area. I then built a small stone bridge using stone slabs, and I lined the edges with torches. I also lined the edges of each waterfall with torches every 4 blocks.
I never thought a game consisting entirely of 3x3 blocks could look so good. It looked especially good from the glass bubble I had hanging from the roof of the cavern.
I would post picks but my friend is doesn't want to manually update his servers and if he just downloads the new version everything will be lost. Also, he said he just doesn't feel like it.
It can be tricky to build, so:
[*:2vjmwfre]2 dirt "bridges" one block below the actual bridge:
[*:2vjmwfre]Put fences on it:
[*:2vjmwfre]Get rid of the dirt while standing on the opposed side:
[*:2vjmwfre]Put the half-blocks in the middle still while standing on the fences.
Hmm...I can't seem to get that program to work...but i'll take your word on it. :smile.gif:

It does rely on glitches though. Half-blocks and stairs just really don't count in this unfair world.
I like rails on bridges. I usually make the path out of wood (rails on wood remind me of roller coaster tycoon) and use the naturally occurring material it's above for "support". Depending on the biome, it rocks. Sandstone/wood is my favorite combination.
     
Yea I rails also look really nice on sandstone. If you want to make a bridge for people to walk on and to ride on I like the glitch idea for safety purposes. But I also like a raised/lowered rail design, it makes the rail seem separate from the bridge and adds a safety from the players.
And on a separate note: I think I should add some of the good bridge designs onto the main post. Tell me what you think.
