Welcome to Ferry Bridge

A new bridge where villagers use boats to cross to the other side!


Creative Mode Activation Instructions

For maximum creativity this mod includes a Creative Mode Variation of the Ferry Bridge which you can activate by removing the two dashes (--) from the following line in the mod.lua file

--ferryBridge:dofile("scripts/ferryBridgeCreative.lua")

Note that for the Creative Mode Bridge to function the two black cubes need to be fully and properly in land otherwise boats will not be spawned!

Manual Installation Instructions

  1. Download the zip file
  2. Create a new directory in your Documents/Polymorph Games/Foundation/mods folder named Ferry Bridge
  3. Copy the zip file in the new Ferry Bridge directory
  4. Extract the zip file using the Extract Here option (do not use the Extract files... option as it will create one more folder in the file structure and the game won't recognise the mod!)
  5. The mod should be good to go! In case of problems contact me using any of the aforementioned social media links or ping me in the official Foundation discord server.

Note: Check the mods folder for a directory named 721600, if it exists delete it or the game won't load the version of the mod you have manually downloaded!

Hello there,
while congratulating for the many mods, I'd like to report on this one.
- I've activated this mod on saved game, so it wasn't a new game
- villagers get stuck relatively often while crossing. They simply can't proceed further. They disappear from the game when their happiness reaches a certain -1k% or so (serf/commoner has left)
- every villager that gets close to the water or walks above it (es. through the terrain mod -Batyushki- or on a bridge) gets a boat under their feet, even though they're walking on ground, but very close to the water, like on a beach. The map I'm trying all this on is Archipelago, by Batyushki. This is a bit immersion breaking, but no big deal.
- the big deal is with fishing. Every fisherman, either from vanilla huts or modded shacks, does not get their usual boat anymore, but the one from this mod (I can tell because they're darker and slightly bigger; slightly different shape). After fishing, they get stuck and cannot get back to the hut/shack, disappearing from the village after a while, like the others. This makes it impossible to fish.
I'm using many mods together and started with this one on a saved game, on a custom map, so there might be some interference with the others or so, or it might not depend on this mod by itself, but I figured I'd report here anyway.
Thanks!

En_Zoo Could you please join discord and send me a save file where this weird thing with fishing happens? ( discord.gg/Foundation )

Regarding stuck villagers that has to be due to terrain or another mod as Ferry Bridges don't interact with pathing or the villagers themselves at all they are normal invisible bridges under the hood ;)

Regarding boats spawning on the feet of villagers that most likely happens because you placed the Ferry Bridge first and then the terrain piece afterwards. Reloading the game should fix this issue as the bridge recomputs the ground's position including terrain.

This mod is also not interacting in any way with fishing huts but only with villagers that walk very close to its entry points so for a start I would recommend you avoid building fishing huts very near the entry points of your Ferry Bridges. This is unfortunately due to a modding limitation and will hopefully be altered in a future update.

However, even then the vanilla boat shouldn't disappear completely but be present inside the Ferry Bridge boat and not block pathing in any way so that sounds weird and I need to check it out to investigate further.

Hello, Ferry bridge is realy a genius idea ! But since a couple of days, the little boats disappeared: the people walk on the water ! The first time i saw it, it occured in a map when i built a third ferry bridge !!!! since, with other maps, there is no boat from the very beginning !!!
thanks in advance for explainations.

That is, actually, a genius idea!
Now we need more islands maps and have our pop sail from one to others ๐Ÿ‘
