Building REALISTIC BRIDGES With Extremely Low Stress

Poly Bridge 2 Part 92 - attempting to beat levels under budget AND under 40% stress. I doubt this will be a full mini series, more of a 1 or 2 episode proof of concept. Try out some stress shaving yourself, let me know if you enjoy it!
Edited by: Tyler
Poly Bridge 2 is the sequel to the hit indie bridge building game Poly Bridge. Poly Bridge 2 introduces new mechanics such as strong roads and springs. Explore new levels, with new vehicles, and a new deterministic physics engine. Enjoy more bridge building fun!

  • I really have to disagree with the dev's on this one. It sounds like a fun game mode and wouldn't impede on the "low budget" mode. Or could just be a filter on the leaderboards so who ever wants to go for it, can. Its a super unobtrusive feature to add to the game. Not like it would ruin the experience for people who just want to tor the lowest budget. Besides its essentially the same concept - in either "mode" you are tweaking your bridge over and over to obtain an optimal result. Whether that is geared toward budget or stress, the core gameplay is essentially exactly the same.

  • If you are able to vary the number and size of the vehicles and use that to optimize the stress of the bridge you create, it should still be possible .. i think. Essentially, the challenge should not be just about what is the lowest stress you can get, it should also be about how many different vehicles can be supported by this bridge.

  • I think the leaderboard formula could be *cost of bridge × ((stress percentage ÷ 100) + 1)* with it counting as a failure if you go over budget or have breaks. For example, a $1,000 bridge at 99.9% stress would show as 1,999 on the leaderboard, whereas a $1,500 at 25% stress would show as 1,875 on the leaderboard.

  • Hold on... Polybridge told you, the expert of polybridge content, what will be fun for the public and not? I haven't even played their game, I enjoy watching what you do with it. If i ever were to buy this game, it would be thanks to you, not their idea of what is "enjoyable to the player". :)

  • When you're making bridges that goes on an angle, the structure supporting it, should be slightly drop shaped. (shape of a drop running down a surface.) The lower end of the bridge is carrying more weight than the higher end, and need more structure :)

  • Poly bridge 2 idea for coop: There will up to 4 players and they will all get their part of the bridge to build with their own separate budget which,after it adds up give you the full budget(they don't all need equal budgets).The maps could be from campaign but a whole new coop levels should be made for better experience.Levels should be asymetrical to remove copy/pasting bridges and they would all have their parts of land to build,except in levels where the player border will be in middle of the air.There they will need to teamwork to make a working design by voting for making a special joint in the middle of the border which will only be there so the players can attach their part of bridges together.That joint won't show up when playing the level because it only serves a purpose of connecting bridges(it's breakable and usseles to use as an anchor).I imagined the joint to be yellow but it should look like the collor of the player which put it.Chatting in those levels should be enabled especially in levels where teamwork is necesary,and afcorse swearing would be deleted and player would get a warning that he will get a penalty for swearing too much(knowing that 85% person of people won't have problems from this).A pointing sistem should be added to have players be able to help eachother by pointing at a part of the bridge which is having problems.Reporting and vote banning sistems should also be there just because.

  • why don't you build roads in an arch too? like the second level for example? that one begs to have the road curved. i haven't played the game and guess that roads are expensive so having fewer of them saves a lot of money, but i think that with a proper curve you save a lot of money on supports

  • I’m not a fan of this; it’s very trial and error. It feel similar to pixel tweaking to go for top 1% budget, since you have to keep running the bridge to see stress, but with less feedback bc it’s hard to tell where the most stress is when it’s all green.

  • I would love to see more of this of least stress bridges. You should just go for least stress ever (and not just 40) with 10k over budget or something similar to that. That you set your own parameters and go for the record. And, if you add an over support and take into account that it’s gonna add 20k to your previous budget but you acknowledge it and still do it.

  • Would this perhaps make more sense as a difficulty? For example you would have "easy" which is below 100% stress, "medium" below, like, 80%, so on and so forth. The numbers can be changed later but I think you understand the point

  • I think the issue with being under budget and below a certain stress threshold is because on some levels there's not much wiggle room, you just barely make it. So for this sort of challenge, you might need to go 50% over budget, then maybe you can aim a little lower stress wise.

  • What if you had the option to change the stress impact scale on your bridge. Since you don't even want to look above 40% why do you have a scale up to 100% it's just useless colour gradient space. If you change your colour scale to represent 40% as 100% in dark red you'll then a have wider changing colour from 40% to 0% giving you the ability to make more precise adjustments . As a recommendation if the bridge exceeds 40% the colour can change to yellow with black diagonal stripes representing the real life danger sign, or just the black diagonal stripes over the dark red in case of triggering epilepsy. Inverting the black to white for the grayscale version, but eh that just my opinion.
