Expanding settlement problem


#1

Somehow by expanding my roads my alt took over as Warden.
I know for a fact that my main Toon has significantly more prestige.
Is this a bug?
In fact all the stats are out of wack. :astonished:

Make sure you have not disconnected your main building with the additional roads from your settlement as this is a common issue.

Go to your building and see if it says something along this line: “This Beacon bridges two or more separate Settlements and cannot merge.”

If it does you need to figure out where the new roads have caused this.


#3

also make sure any new roads you plotted is 3 plots high or wide to connect to the existing settlement… had that issue where i missed that from a bridge what was made being only one plot wide…

hope this helps as well :slight_smile:


#4

Thanks much. That last suggestion sounds like the most attractive to me. An excuse to build high up :sunglasses:


#5

np… look into both suggestions just in case :)…


#6

I’m pretty sure it has to be 3 plots wide, not high. I remember people saying that the game looks at the footprint only.


#7

I have done 3 high… one below the bridge and one above and it connected the other half of the city to my settlement.


#8

Can confirm it’s not footprint only, also have 3 high 1 wide sections on my bridge and it’s correctly classified as part of my beacon over 15 plots away


#9

You only need 3 wide… you could save a lot of plots. Remove some of those.


#10

As far as I know two wide or high is enough.


#11

I tried 2 and it would not connect… as soon as I added a plot below the 2 above it connected so I have my bridge road plot, one plot above and one plot under the road plot… I know I can do 3 wide but I chose this way in case I decided to do something with the bridge that needs the height :slight_smile:


#12

It also doesn’t necessarily need to be every spot. I have bridges 1 plot wide. Every other plot I made 3 high. It connects. You may want to experiment with every 3rd, but I am too lazy.


#13

I got it fixed. :grin: The “Two high” seems to work. I only went 3 high in a couple of spots. I kept falling and dying trying to fix it. But it’s fixed so I’m happy :smiley:. Thanks again for the help.
