This is manageable when following a guide, but if you are trying to do this without one it is quite difficult. Below is a screenshot of each level on the first island. Remember, you may need to run the sim more than once as you rely on the bridge crashing on most of these builds. A good way to make sure that your bridge is identical to the one that I made is by checking the budget, if they are the same you most likely built it correctly. If you're having issues, run the sim a few times, you get a different result each time. If you come up with a more efficient or effective way to beat a level, let me know in the comments and I will replace my picture with yours!

Level 1-8 (Left side of bridge will collapse which will catapult the tanker to the right, will take a few tries but it works)

Congrats on your achievement! Please let me know if you come up with a better solution for any level!
hoog This guide is for the tank trucks which you unlock after beating all levels with the normal truck. Once you beat all levels you get a higher budget in each level and can use the tank truck. Hope that clarifies

Dark2099 The solution for 1-8 gave me a laugh. Thanks for the great guide!

XreignZ If you feel like you're stuck on 4, don't get discouraged. It took me probably 30+ attempts but my tank finally made it.

A Navy of Ducks I can't get past 3, breaks at first support

Throni360 Run it a few times, like the guide says. It broke at first for me too but the second try succeeded.

Throni360 I found a fool proof solution for 1-4 that does not collapse and works every time:

Joshatron1205 Just got the stubborn achievement on lvl 3, i cant get it
Posted by Joshatron1205 on 23 Aug 15 at 17:35
MxSvnty4 I got it first try on 3 guys. When you create your road, make sure to place that node in the middle instead of going the other way around. You want to take the wood from the road to the other support, not from the support to the road, if that makes sense. If this isn't it then I can't think of anything else. Nice guide though Corrupted!

Throni360 You misspelled my name. cry

hoog Sorry about that, will replace when I'm home

griffey95 For 1-8, make sure to use small length board at the front and end of the bridge, otherwise they will seem like they "float". So, road to mid, mid to top, not a big Letter A with a v in it. Once that is set the truck will hop correctly, otherwise it will drop instead.

mosin360 Each picture helped me with no issues, many thanks.

SturnusVulgaris On Level 1-2, the diagonal beam underneath the bridge is not needed.
Saves 100 credit. :-)
Nice guide btw!

Jedi Pirate Oni I could not get bridge 8 to work after many attempts so If anyone is in the same boat I have one that works without breaking. Not my solution, this is NoXPhasma's bridge:

LifeExpectancy My achievement didnt unlock after the tank truck crossed the 8th bridge. The only thing I can assume is that having the bridge fall apart after the truck crosses can maybe glitch the achievement since it's the last bridge, if the game thinks you failed? I tried re running the truck across all 8 bridges and it still won't unlock. Praying I dont have to start the game all over again to get this. Anyone have this happen and find a way to get the achievement to unlock?

Hanx @LifeExpectancy I had same issue. I just selected the first one on Westlands - Bridge 1 and deleted it, then remade the easy bridge. Set the tanker off on its way and after it made it across, I got the achievement. Let me know if it works for you.

Ricardo Capello Yesterday I did Tank truck insignia 'West' and Tank truck insignia 'Central' but both achievements didn't pop.

Looking at the game "map", these two islands are at 100%. Sad...

Is it normal, or common?
Posted by Ricardo Capello on 01 Sep 16 at 14:26
Throni360 Is it "Done... unlocking!" in the achievment app?
Posted by Throni360 on 01 Sep 16 at 14:34
Ricardo Capello No, nothin about. Done... Unlocking. But I rebuild one bridge from each island, and both achievements popped.

just a minor bug, or delay. Now everything is right.

Thanks, Throni360

maxen Level 1-7 appears to work a bit better if you attach an additional cable between the first and fourth wooden supports (the ones that only extend one unit below the bridge).

Chizzle e4 Two achievements in this game just popped for me this morning even though I hadent played in months, deffo buggy. And Throni360’s name is still spelled wrong :)

hoog Thanks, Throni360's name has been updated - years later :)

Throni360 Thank you! clap

GoyetteQC You can make 1-7 foolproof simply by moving one of the 3 grid wood planks to the left completely.
Posted by GoyetteQC on 18 Jul 18 at 19:08
AussieBigfoot L1-1 you can build 1 height lower with the budget = 3500/5000.
L1-3 I built the middle 3 road 1 unit higher & removed the mini vertical support on the left, budget = 7700/8000.
L1-5 slight variation of support placement, budget = 27750/28000.
L1-7 same style just slightly different placement, same budget.
L1-8 different design (took a few attempts to cross), budget 15400/23000.
