Would a city built underwater work?

Over the past few months, I have been kinda (maybe not kinda, but AM) obsessed with Bioshock and the city of Rapture. I know there’s already an Atlantis-like city on Boundless. But would people be willing to build a 1930-40s looking city underwater kinda like Rapture but with their own special twist? Would it be better to do this kind of city (Not the 1930-40s looking city, but of the underwater variety) in hostile atmospheres?

Let me know what your thoughts are about a project like this below!

Seems like a hard but cool idea

To create a city like that with that kind of detail we are talking thousands of plots. plotting the area underwater will be a huge pain, to begin with, let alone build. Personally, the easiest option is to bomb out a huge area and build underground and afterwards fill it with water.

That being said, I love the art on Bioshock rapture! It will be so cool if you can pull it off.

I looked into building atlantis from stargate in the past. The amount of plots it would have taken me was just not achievable. There have been a few underwater builds I’ve come across in the past and they all were pretty awesome. Best of luck.

I’m not building an underwater city… just seeing how likely it is to build one

It’s totally doable and you should do it

A Pyramid that serves as a community hub also came to my mind…

And a giant 2-D image of Morshu

The Kraken brew would make this project so much easier.
