Subject: The ONI Base is the most poorly designed office building in history.

You got four floors right? Now I mean, I guess in the year 2552 they think, "Oh elevators, I guess we won't use that anymore!" So what the hell do they do? 500 years in the future? They put air vents and yellow lifts. What the hell? What if I was carrying some coffee or something, I go up one of those things and, what do you know, my coffee goes all over the place. It spills on my shirt, my pants, that memo the boss needed, my briefcase, EVERYTHING!

Why can't they just make some adjacent bridges? I don't understand this at all. OR JUST USE SOME GODDAMN ELEVATORS! Also, whats with the big gravity lift in the middle? It's almost as worse as the yellow lift. Say I need to get to the second floor, but the airvent is a piece of crap so I decide to use this thing. Plus I mean, my office is right there, what can go wrong? So I jump in it and I completely miss the bridge and fall and break my legs.

What the hell is wrong with ONI? Is this the Olympics? Why does getting to the bridge need to be a game? Don't it's workers just sue the place? I mean coffee spills everywhere, you break your damn legs, I mean everything just goes wrong here. Also there's no chairs, what the hell? Do I have to stand up when I'm writing that big tax report? What a terrible building.

Marines will still break their legs if they miss the gravity lift. Still inconvenient and ill-designed. Say theres a hostage on the fourth floor, I got to use every goddamn lift and thing in the base instead of just sprinting to the top, or once again, USING SOME GODDAMN ELEVATORS!

Then it needs to be removed immediately from the premises.

It's a research facility...and a cover for the MUCH larger ONI operation going on underneath the building. It's not an office building...it's a facade.

How would you even give people a tour of the place when they need to go through very uncomfortable gravity lifts?

Do you even know what a facade is? It's a fake...the entire building is a fake. Ever notice how the ONLY people/corpses you find in the building and surrounding areas in campaign, are only Marines? No researchers, no civilians, no workers? That's because they were never there.

That's just my opinion though.

If they made an elevator like reflection, there would be many myterious deaths.

A massive cardboard cutout of an office building would have been more realistic...
