Idea: Bridge Building Game

Title says it all. Well represented in 2D, but IDK some 3D Versions. The player has to build a bridge which has to connect two cliffs. Furthermore, it should withstand a certain pressure. An entity(with train model or so) then uses A* pathfinder to go over the bridge. While on bridge blocks, it calculates whether the certain parts of the bridge hold the tension.

Great idea, I liked the game. But you only have a limited number of nodes.
I already thought about it, but the 3D physics with pressure and tension, not so easy...

Yes, I agree. Probably entities would be better than nodes ???

Things can become interesting if you make wood/steel/etc. nodes wall-mounted (or attached). Maybe add on top of that an ABM that changes the mount direction randomly when the cows cross the bridge?
