I agree that aqueducts should not be limited by slopes. However terraforming isn't the correct solution: Rail/road bridges use foundations to solve the same issue.

It would be better to permit foundations for canals. I am happy to make the case that this would be good for the game, lots of other things have been made more permissive on slopes over time (e.g. road depots and drive-in roadstops).

Foundations would also imply allowing lowering of land next to a canal.

I don't know if there are implementation problems with foundations for canals, nor how rivers should be handled.


  • Aqueducts currently work differently to rail/road bridges, they're built like tunnels from a single tile, not dragged like rail/road bridges
  • frosch indicated that water on foundations might not be possible

Viewed with the (terribly dark) sunglasses of realism concerns, aqueducts should probably also occupy the tile height below them, requiring a two tile heights below for rail/road to be built.

Given no developer showed interest in this for the last 2 months, I am going to call this a day. Sorry, but this doesn't seem to itch others as much as it does you.

Thank you for the contribution though!

Is it possible to re-open this?
If aqueducts are indeed similar to tunnels then i think they should exhibit the same terraforming behaviours (eg how tunnels raise land to accomodate the other end). It would be more convenient for players.
Also I think it would give PR #7607 a bit more liberty in path options.
Makes me wonder though - should plain canal tiles also have the same behaviour? And locks as well?
