there was no way for this structure to be anything more than a very large staircase. In the end, it collapsed, destroying three cities.

And this is why it's in the logbook of epic fail. They built cities DIRECTLY UNDER THE STAIRCASE. Yes, any character or race I create is liable to do something extremely stupid at least once. Something so monumentally idiotic, it comes across as a cheap metaphor for something I did when I was younger, which it's not.

As they say, can't make an uber monument without cracking some eggs. Or in this case, cities.  ;D


Interestingly enough, according to some calculations, ancient people, coupled with the use of well made bricks for their time, could theoretically allow humans to build a tapering tower so high that its construction would have to be postponed indefinitely, until oxygen tanks are invented. xp

People will eventually adapt to the weather on such heights, like how the people in the Andies or Shangri-La did, though it might take some time depending on which specific people build the tower, what with some civs more used to higher elevations than others.



On a related note, as pointless as building an inefficiently high tower is, I guess it might help boost development of much more advanced construction technology, I guess. Not to mention the perfect watchtower.  :D
