Lambs territory

Subsection of Rapture map showing territory Sofia Lambs 'Family' controlled (white outlining) and cutoff points done by others in the City who were not wanting what she was peddling ...




Patterns

Diagram of some modular building mechanisms (game mechanism allowing deformable scenery - that is you can blow in walls/doors/etc... because the game system would be designed for it).




Modularstructures

Diagram of Rapture wall construction (particularly detail of the drainage mechanism to handle the continuous seepage/condensation in the outer walls)




Hephaestus

Hephaestus  Core #3 elaborations for city power/heat/fresh-water systems




Diving hardsuitFixed

Diving Hard Suit suitable for 600+ foot depths for human divers (the canvas ones we see only work to <150 feet for normal humans)

Pneumo

Pneumo System Diagram

Jet Postal 'Pneumo' mechanism elaborations

Jet Postal  - The Citywide Pneumatic Mail Transport system I've expanded the details of what the Pneumo system would need to be




Emergencyaccess

Emergency Access panel corrected to match other maps




Stations Metro

Metro Bathysphere Station Designs and Cable Mechanisms




Small bathysphere

Mini-sub Detail and Docking Airlocks (used as cockpits for maintenance equipment)




Bathysphere

Metro (cable) Bathysphere elaborations (not quite as streamlined as the originals). Cable system rather than free floating. Note the cable 'fenders' (bars with a curved indent that prevent the cable from fouling the propellers). This design is an attempt to make a transit system with the required safety/reliability. Cable grabs for a fixed cableway system are MUCH simpler than some complex and very-advance (and horribly expensive) autopilot system.




Foundation

Rapture Skyscaper (high-rise) Building Structure Actually a ~20 story building should be about the tallest normal of buildings (with a few a bit bigger to impress). Most building wouldn't be more than 5 stories, so the 20+ storoies would still stand out (just not as impressive as those in-game views with 60 stories which would cause all kinds of construction issues - like having their tops taken off by passing icebergs).




Cityscape

Rapture City Structure Ideas

Rapture Cityscape




Streetq

City 'Street' Structure Ideas Low level Street structures criss-crossing Rapture. This would usually be two facing building fronts with central transportation path . There probably would be several miles of this prefab structure type in Rapture to fill in with low density residence/manufacturing areas for the city.




RaptureBig

Larger Terrain Map around Rapture (NOT including outlying communities)




Rapture Sign2

Rapture Noir Sign

LA Noire Styled Sign  (to be put up up on site of torn down Lighthouse ????)




MagneticstorageB

Here's a widget blueprint(like) diagram - a (probably failed) design for a micro magnetic 'disk' drive module with fixed Read/Write heads (as per early technology) with sufficient data for a small computer (used to reboot it when the power failed).

I really don't know why they decided Chalkboards would be more suitable than Blueprints. Too many of the BaSx (and Infinite BS) presentations really were NOT suited to being on a Chalkboard.




AnimatronicRyan

This is how Ryan tricked Jack (and Fontaine) into believing he had been killed...




Ny

Relative scaling : Rapture vs Manhattan




Subbuoyancydiagram

Buoyancy is a bitch ...





Spectrumwater


Spectrumx

Why water fades to blue and down around Rapture it is so fricken dark (and murky - so that you'd never actually see buildings sufficiently far away from you - no matter how well lit they were).
