Overly huge signs and details made as if the players couldn't be counted on to notice or be interested in seeing for themselves. Take the advertising sign idea from Rapture and lets make them 10 times bigger to cover the oversized buildings and other details.

Its kind of strange to have Crass Commercialism in the Flying Eden, No ? Its like the game had one too many rewrites and a desperation caused by the wasted effort became schizoid in its intent and presentation. ((I dont think there were huge billboards advertising Kool Aid in the Jim Jones' Jonestown compound, do you ??)) Others signs are rather odd verbage to have a sign for.

Some things in Infinite BS were just plain TOO HUGE to be part of the real world. Stuff costs, and money seems to have just magically grown on trees for such extravagances to ever get built (even if they were realistic in any way). Signs were so huge (look at any of the period pictures further below and see what size they really were kept to). Obscenely WRONG mechanical things - the stupidity really didn't stop in this game.

"THERES AN ART TO MAKING SOMETHING SEEM REAL - THIS AINT IT" - Reginald Perrin



Big Signs Cost Big Bucks :

Did Fink (or other) find some magic beans in a Tear that allowed humungus giant complicated signs and monstrous gold statuary grow up like trees. That might be the only way Columbia could be so full of these ridiculously oversized (and costly) things. The section built as the 1893 Exposition Show City (El Floato) would only be a small PART of the larger later Columbia (and no you didn't just take the other ground exposition buildings and levitate them - that would be years later, and THEY were made of fiberfilled plaster and chickenwire -- all quite temporary and unable to last much more than a year).

Ditto for the rest of Columbia's HUGE buildings costing ALOT of money, which can't possibly be paid for from Tax-Payer monies or even the cultist population. Real cities are built over many decades with business flowing in from a whole regional area - something that is IMPOSSIBLE with Columbia's Limited Economy.


And the Gianourmous Stupidity then Leaked into BaSx Rapture :




Real World use of Sizing and Signs (or appropriate LACK of them):

Compare the above to these things from around that era, and note how small the signs are and the general lack of huge weird complex advertising props - EVEN IN VENUES WHERE SUCH EXAGGERATIONS MIGHT BE LIKELY !!!.
