So I'm playing as humans, on a largish map (actually a wee bit bigger than the picture) so I have room to build above ground.
I was making modifications/repairs to the old worldgen road/bridge when the waterfall... "pit", I guess, started to flood slowly across the bridge. It's a fairly chilly biome; it's late-spring and the water just now all thawed out.
It's not too bad now, but I'm not sure how serious it will get. Do you think the stream emptying to the ocean is too narrow? I considered raising that whole section of the road on pilings,
but if it freezes while it's flooded, will it deconstruct the pilings?
I could wall the whole thing off and use it for farming, like a huge spillway running down to the beach. It's still a temperate biome, so I'm hoping maybe some of it will evaporate off during the summer.
Edit: By pilings, I meant supports, but obviously, I could just construct walls.
I dunno though, never had this happen before.
