Upgrade Store Size


The size of the Upgrade store doesen’t make any sense. On the outside it’s got the storefront of every other shop in size, same in length, same in height. But since the Upgrade store is its own loading area, seperated by a special door it doesen’t have to follow those rules, and as such, the inside is weirdly, much larger than the space it is possible to have in the space shown outside.
For example:

can not fit in

A logical explanation would be that the door opens to a staircase that goes under Plaza, to get more breathing room for the underground shop room, but why would all the space shown above still be blocked in, and there is no indication of this being present. Perhaps Upgrade store is a special pocket dimension/Tardis thing?

Just found a similar thing with Theatre.
This little thing here does NOT count for the Theatre 1.
Theatre has got to be underground too?



The casino, theatre and upgrades store are actually underground vaults made by VaultTec

The casino vault was meant to test how long people can be locked in a casino before they would succumb to the temptation of gambling

Meanwhile the theatre vault was meant to brainwash people with subliminal messages and to see what effect said messages would have.

And the upgrade store was meant as a test to see if people could figure out that it would be impossible to gain any upgrades if there were no one there that they could get them from.
So far none of the participants has succeeded in this one.

The Truth

The actual non jokey answer is that the insides of the casino, theater, upgrades and so on are just in their own little areas below the map



I believe the interior of Upgrades is canonically underground. But it is also literally underground, but not attached, it’s like 30 feet under in a big ol box.



I know this, but this is a discussion of logic/a canon question

I remember the old position of Upgrade store, you could enter it from the weird maintenance doors in lobby 2. I think that reinforces this, though RIP Lobby 2.



In Lobby 2 , the Upgrades store was beneath the stores and platform on the right side of the store area.

I designed it to be underground. The door to go into it was originally an elevator, but I changed it to the normal sliding door at Mac’s request.



To be honest i was kinda imagining that it was off-screen elevators that took us to the different places.
