We'll be increasing it a fair amount in the next patch, let us know how that goes.

In the notes it says it will increase from 15k to 25k units. How many units high is one wall piece?

Right now it seems to be about 75 or so pillars high... so I'm guessing each pillar/wall has 200 units

Also will the next patch fix the ceiling and wall tiles not building after 30 stories?

That kind of build is the sort of thing I'd only try with infinte resources. Gathering for that must be a monster job. As an aside, you probably don't need as many pillars as you're using in those screenshots. One pillar can support two tiles out in the four cardinal directions and one tile out diagonally. So, if you don't intend your bridge to be any wider than 3 tiles, you could do that with half as many pillars as you're using by spacing them every other tile. If you want it to be 5 tiles wide, though, ignore me and carry on. :-)

Yes, but with space, it would not be increased to three largaura the bridge. and has not infinite resources

Thanks for the info!
And, Devs, please confirm that will be fixed! Being able to build a tower 125 stories would be awesome! Imagine the view!! Even just up to 50 would be nice!

Fantastic, I'll finally be able to finish the "lighthouse" to mark the spot of the submarine cave ^^
Honestly for a large build, like I'm doing. The hardest/most annoying part is getting fiber. A Mammoth can help you grab wood and thatch like a champ. Prolly around 5-10 structures a minute if you have the fiber and extra thatch.

Once I finish (and they fix the not building above 30 stories) I'll be putting out a guide for large structures.

Thanks for incoming fix :)

Where are you building this bridge? I'd love to see more screen shots of the completed project =D

On OfficialPVEServer32 my tribe had managed to build a bridge spanning from the mainland (south3 spawn) to the SE island, prepatch. I'm thinking yours is to Carno island though. If you want come check it out. We made it look like the Golden Gate Bridge.
Idrona Jul 10, 2015 @ 10:42pm 
We are building a bridge to Death Island on PVE Official Server 37 if anyone wants to check that out too. :) .. Work in progress but will reach the island with middle part of bridge later today is the plan.

I have spent close to 400 hours playing in both pve and pvp servers, mostly enjoying hunting taming and building.cannot wait until devs give a week soley dedicated to building fixes.
I have been working on many base test types using all tiers and water pens.unhappy that fences have 2 sides when so hard to tell which way foundation will make it face. you seriously should just make wood walls same faced for both sides, would save folks many,many headaches.

Oh hahaha nice. I actuqlly ran right into the problem in one place, building a bridge across the ocean to the SE island from the penninsula. The game was getting... wierd once you passed a certain distance to the sea floor, having serious issues detecting things.

Looking forward to seeing if this change fixes it! Maybe I can build my bridges decorations finally. If it does... I can fix the issue and finally build my sea town.

Also to the OP - why so many pillars? You can just build foundations on the sea floor, and bridge over them without supports! (Well, you could before the previous 'fix' - its harder now, but still works)
