Whats the diffrance? Vector vs. vector for 3D Bridges

i know you're all asking yourself whats the difference...

Black Marble Vector Pack and Black Marble Vector for 3D Bridges?

 

first thing first Vector for 3D Bridges pack is only available to those who bought 3D Bridges so they can swap standard vector with Vector for 3D Bridges,

 

in Black Marble 3D Bridges we take the portion of the roads classified as "bridge" and render those to a 3 Dimensional Bridge above ground,

the  traditional way of rendering the "bridge" part of a roads is to render that "bridge" portion as flat road,

 

this why we see intricate intersections as flat roads in Sim,

in standard vector pack we also rendered these "bridge" sections as flat roads (the traditional approach),

 

in vector for 3D Bridges we remove that "bridge" portion of the road completely!

to make room for our 3D Bridges so they can sit nice and clean without a flattened "bridge road" below it,

just as it in the real world, where there are roads going under; there will be one in Sim that is not a "flattened bridge",

 

to make it even more simple; if you run Vector for 3D Bridges without 3D Bridge pack; you will have holes in the road where bridges go!

 

Here we are looking overlooking KLAX ahead of us in default Sim,

Here we have Black Marble Base + Vector for 3D Bridges Pack without 3D Bridges Pack
(you can see the difference here between the two as a standalone)

Just a quick clarification. If I'm already using standard BM Vector and install 3D Bridges,  do I skip Vector for 3D Bridges or do I uninstall standard vector and use 3D Bridges vector instead?

Sorry Chris, I found the answer in another post.  Use standard vector without bridges and  bridge vector with bridges. Correct?
