Rapture Cityscape Diagram :



Cityscape
  • 'Street' ways interconnect different sections of the city (with their Metro trolley lines used for mass transit)
  • Scale on left edge show depth with Street level at about 600 feet.
  • Building heights stop at a depth of ~100 feet to avoid small Ice floes that got past Mt Ryan (which protects the City against icebergs which can extend many hundreds of feet down from the surface).
  • Concrete Foundations used to support buildings and other structures are dug into the seafloor sediment and imbedded in the bedrock.
  • Plazas/squares sit in middle of cluster of several taller High-Rise buildings (directly connected to them or by viaducts). They are at 'street' level (and often well above the seafloor).
  • Crosswise main Streets intersect in the Plazas to transfer traffic to other sections of the city, and other Street

intersections elsewhere.

  • Atlantic Express lines run below the Street level in various directions connecting major plazas.
  • Hills/ridges have smaller buildings built into the contours. Many of the locations the player traveled thru in BS1/BS2 were sprawling complexes of connected buildings like this.
  • Underground tunnels and caverns used as a 'cheaper' construction technique for farms, manufacturing, industrial and warehousing facilities.
  • Perpendicular 'Streets' form blocks of low-rise shops and residences.
  • Secondary Metro trolley lines run independant of the 'Street' system, often following ridges and tunneling thru hills to remain relatively flat.
  • All buildings have a seafloor airlock for maintenance.
  • The Lighthouse Bathysphere descends thru a tunnel in Mt Ryan and then emerges to head to the Welcome Center.
