# Bridge Polygon rule package

I'm fairly new to CGA, but I want to modify the existing rule package, so the pier style would be based on attribute data. The rule packages is originally from 3D Basemaps Solution. Currently, the only options for pier styles are "Solid", "2 Pipes", "3 Pipes", which means that throughtout the bridge, the shore and river piers stay the same style. However, based on my attribute data, the shore piers can be solid, but the river piers can be "2 Pipes" and "3 Pipes". How do I modify the rule package in a way that the inner and outer piers are different?

For example, in this picture, all the piers are solid. And in this picture they are "2 Pipes". I need to combine those two styles, so that the middle pier is "2 Pipes" and the end and start piers are solid blocks.

This is the part of the code which defines pier attributes, which I have modified a little bit. I believe I have to change the split(x) part and PierType.

pierBaseWidth = bridgeWidth * ((0.8)) #double parentheses denote undeclared constant.
pierBaseLength = pierBaseWidth * Jalami_pikkus

lengthBetweenEndPiers = bridgeLength - 2 *( _Pier_Start_Length + pierBaseLength)
pierCountBetweenEndPiers =
case Pier_Count == 1:
1

else:
Pier_Count - 2

emptySpanTotal = lengthBetweenEndPiers - (pierCountBetweenEndPiers * pierBaseLength)
emptySpan = emptySpanTotal / (pierCountBetweenEndPiers + 1)

Check out this simple example that colors the inner piers red and the outer piers green.

``````attr Inner_Pier_Type = "2 Pipes"
attr Outer_Pier_Type = "Solid"
@Hidden
attr Pier_Type = "Solid"

const _Pier_Start_Length = 10
const pierBaseLength = 20
const emptySpan = 40

PiersCounts -->
split(x) { ~_Pier_Start_Length: NIL
