Novel Differences :

check timeline vs game evidence

Novel has Sofia Lamb arriving 1950 - was there sufficient population and time to have the "closed/too-close environment" effect to be seen as a problem for the citizens already ? Indirectly, that would allow time for Ryan to have added/finished more 'people' facilities (Like the Arcadia 'park', museums, 'Carnival', Ryan Amusements, Stadium (with sports), Cohens Theater, etc..

The Novel story has Tenenbaum discovering Sea Slug 1950. Better that it can give some earlier lead time for ADAM development, versus some 'Wave of the hand' over-simplified/unlikely-easyness/too-accelerated-events as seen repeatedly in the weak Infinite BS fantasy). The discovery date in BS1 is vague, so the MMORPG could use the 1950 date.

Fontaine shows up pretty early (1948), but without ADAM he's doing fishing (as his cover) and organizing his smuggling (which elsewhere I've explained CANNOT be anywhere enough to build his so-large 'empire', which is supposed to be the seed money for the whole ADAM business later). OK - more time to setup his operation(s) and recruit thugs and do his many criminal activities, etc.. (but be completely hidden from Ryan/the law/etc...)

Serious ADAM development is shown in in the Novel (cute scenes like a Teleporting Splicer

Problematic Fisherman :

Fontaine (radio- Olympus Heights, when YOU are after him): "I've got twelve years down here"

Novel has him go there while Rapture is still building - making believe he runs a small fishing fleet. Thus Fontaine in Rapture ~1960-12 = ~1948 (add the time up on surface running the fishing operation (fleet) before entry to Rapture).

How exactly did fish get from trawlers into Rapture ? (Obviously More facilities needed at the Lighthouse)

Rapture's location is also 3000+ miles from the nearest North American base and 4000 from US East Coast

Funny thing is that he probably knew absolutely NOTHING about Ocean Fishing (nor Submarines), and how likely was it he would recruit competent crews when he was an unknown. Small boats (let alone a 'fleet') are dangerous enough without a total ignoramus involved) -- anyone knowing the old 'Fontaine' (per the Novel he kills that person and takes their identity) would quickly know it wasn't him.
