Ships on a bridge destroyed with bridge ANSWERED

Not sure if this is intentional, but noticed this and thought it was weird. If a ship is traveling over their own bridge, it can be destroyed if you destroy the bridge.

This makes sense for other units, because if you blow the bridge they would be drowned, but a ship wouldn't be on the bridge in the first place.

Maybe the ship is under the bridge and the bridge falls on it? Anyway, thought I'd bring it up.

That sounds like what was meant.

The game recognises any unit, boat or not, to be 'on' the bridge. You could make it more realistic, say damaging the ship, but that would require more from the game.

yes i thought it is ok like this (only lack of coding there to differentiate if the unit can survive or not on water - not som uch toe check if the unit can float and unit can survive (eg. a boat)

same true for the dock: if that is destrolyed than all units in it destroyed regardless of swim ability - shall i change it?

No that is fine I think. It's like the bridge collapsed or burned on them.
