I'm an experienced player, returning after a break of several months. I had been playing in the grassy plains, and got a good oil production line going, etc. Now I'm trying the desert.
I can't remember how to build a downward ramp. I'm trying to get to some coal; I'm on the edge of a cliff, and I want to build a ramp going down.
I'm using foundations of the 8x4 variety, either flat or ramped, to get them to fit together. I can barely even get the ramp started.
I have a flat foundation at the top, and I built a single ramp piece going down. Then, standing on the ramp piece, I built a flat piece underneath. I can't figure out how to get the next ramp foundation to fit on the edge, to make the next step down.
I've looked at a couple YouTubes which make it look easy, but I just can't get it to work. It's really frustrating. Why is it so difficult to build a downward ramp? Can the devs do something about this? Can I get a hint, as to what I need to do? Thanks.
Edit: I think the main issue here was that the cliff was not 'high' enough, and the foundation was wanting to be built on the ground down below the cliff. So I jumped down, and built the ramp from below. It will be interesting to see how it goes from a real high cliff.
