I haven't finished the game yet, but I was wondering why they don't just jump down if all they are doing is trying to escape the city. Making or finding a parachute is a lot easier compared to what they did.

Well they're above a gigantic ocean for one with the only landmass in sight is the lighthouse which from what the Lutece's said about it being "awful to get stranded out here.", I assume it's extremely far away from shore.

Actually, if you look down when you first launch into Columbia, they're above some land. Somehow. But there is land underneath nonetheless.

In all the early gameplay footage and trailers you can see land below as well.

at one point i remember seeing a map with a whole lot of locations and lines drawn all over. I assumed the city moved all over the world to have ideal weather and climate all year round.

Don't think they had invented parachutes back then, never mind the kind of high altitude equipment they would need to breathe and stuff. (I assume magic makes Columbia warm and breathable.)

Leonardo da Vinci invented the parachute about 500 years before the game takes place.

Also, there is some landmass pretty close to the light house. They didn't row a boat so far out that they couldn't see land anymore.
