MORE Wonderous Pictures (best part of this wiki)



1893chicago

Chicago 1893 (time of the Columbian Exposition).




1896firstford

1896 First Ford car. Real vehicles can add much to a game.




Wirewrap

Method of circuit construction (done before the etched copper circuit boards). Wire wrapping - connecting between pins attached to components on the other side of the board. Components got smaller and required more wires in a small space.




ALLEMPTYLOOTBOX


Empties

Another pile of empty loot boxes. Ones with something still in them were in a different pile. They didn't clean them up too fast (eventually they disappear).




Teslaspotlight

Tesla had this spotlight used at the actual 1893 Exposition. With a few modifications and incentives from the US Government, he probably could have turned it into a Death Ray. Columbia really would NOT have had a chance going up against real genius and 10000X as much resources making use of the knowledge that had been observed and recorded (and outsourced/contracted) when Columbia was built.




Sane more

Notice the cable the 'Bathysphere' is traveling on. A number of the people who did concepts had better designed ideas (less fantasy) than were actually used in-game.




Bleumonge

I guess you couldn't shoot out of something like this while traversing the 'skyline'... (I believe thats the Paris Train station that inspired the building of Penn Station in NYC)




Locomotive1934

First US streamlined Locomotive 1934. For some reason, some of the AE trains look remarkably like this.




TimesSquare


Oldnytbuilding

Imagine these hanging BELOW Columbia (unfortunately games have flat levels and Infinite BS didn't take the opportunity they were offered). Seemingly rather thin building (actually it widens alot just can't see it in this picture).




Jukebox6

Our old friend the Jukebox. Always seems to be broken. In the MMORPG they will be repaired (to play Player Created hits - "copyright material need not apply").




Edisonamberola1916

Edison phonograph and cylinders. The cylinders should have been sufficient for Booker to find (to play on a pocket phonograph he would have picked up immediately on entry to Columbia ... inhabitants are forced to buy and listen to 'inspirational' records constantly and are fined if they don't.)

Instead of the game had that asinine claptrap Voxophone device (an imaginationless direct clone of the BioShock object).




Strangelike

Filched through a Tear, the classic movie was modified to match Columbia's peculiarities (The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Heretics !!!)

The Sound of Munitions ?




Nowthatsalamp

Art Deco offered so much opportunity to clone stuff without any aesthetical talent required whatsoever.




MarvinTsSoupEmporium

Marvin T's Soup Emporium of Shady Acres. Statue in the restaurant and Company logo (an instant soup brand).




Boozeroid

Poseidon Brewery's giveaway mug ... (So much imagination out there, and its a shame it can't be tapped into for games.)




1893transportation

1893 Transportation Exhibit at the Columbian Exposition




1893exposition

Exposition, not a caricature. Large statue would be made of lathing, chicken-wire and plaster. Imagine what Columbia's would have actually looked like 19 years later.




Otiselevatorengine

Steam powered elevator engine from the old days. Good reason why there usually was an elevator operator. No push-buttons controlling this thing. A hoist engine with a capstan with cable, double pistons, gears, belt drive, control lines which worked the throttle and reverser.

In the new System Shock meets Space 1889 Columbia, there would be lots of these instead of some weird quantumz crystal crap to make things work.




RyanAirlinesFlyingboat

With Ryan constantly going back and forth while Rapture was being built, using an old style seaplane would make sense for him.




OperatingSinceMid30s 1

The PCC (Presidents Conference Commission) trolley/streetcar was first built in the mid 30s. Compare this to the BS1 trolleys on the caricature transit system (which really goes nowhere).




Macon1931

Compare this to the cumbersome mess of Infinite BS's 'Zeppelins'. US and foreign agents WOULD have stolen Columbia's secrets, so imagine what the rest of the world would have been like almost 20 years later ... (Hack game writers can be such unimaginative/careless simpletons).




BennieRailplane

1930 attempt at an improved train system. Note how complex the structure is compared to the old type track below it. Called a 'monorail', but it required that guide rail under the car.

BS2's Atlantic Express mechanism wasn't bad, though powering it would be an obvious difficulty (not the rack & pinion, but what drove their rotation).




YesTriedThisWW1

Yes, they tried this in WW1. Note- this covers only the front of the head and body. This partial suit is heavy even when most of the time the occupant sits without moving, because steel thick enough to stop bullets is so heavy as to make most ordinary movement impossible. Doesn't protect from shrapnel exploding behind the suit (artillery caused most WW1 combat wounds). Leather armor - just as encumbering and even more useless.
