Flying road.

Please don't build "unrealistic" roads. I see a flying road to the nation of roc, and it just looks wierd having a 200 meter long road hovering over the water.

Or, if you have to make floating roads, make SOMETHING that supports it. If an arch or other form of real-world support won't work, make a giant floating balloon or something!

Giant balloon on a string.
Big seagull in the air with a leash
A whale in the water with road on the back
A "natural" rock you build under the road
An elephant supporting as a collum with it's nose.
even a single collum of fence underneat.

Basically: If you HAVE to build a floating road, make sure to give it support, at least visually, that isn't ugly.

Floating cobbleshit road, no support = bad

Floating cobbleshit road, with 1 block supports = bad

Floating cobble/halfblock/smoothstone road, supported by a string of wool balloons attached to the road with giant chains = GOOD

Just to note before someone jumps on it. My bridge, which runs by serveral nations and I connected to the pathfinder's guild roads, Is currently under construction, and probably wont be finished as I would prefer to try and test commands. I have supports under sections of it, but not enough to make it very realistic. That said, it's also nowhere near the style I would have it on the main map as it looks too straight and modern, but this is beta. We're here to test, not just build fun structures.

The rules clearly says that we are to build in style/theme.
If your building a flying road with no support, your building to far to fast, and should make the supports while moving slowly forward towards your goal.
