I’m not a mapper or modder (yet) but that doesn’t stop me from imagining maps when I see certain images or photos.
These 7 photos are ones that when I saw them I thought “Mmm, that might make part of a cool map.”
They are not in a particular order.
I should mention that no consideration has been made for engine limitation. I understand that engines can’t create everything in the images, but that doesn’t mean a clever modder couldn’t use the idea as simple inspiration, hence the title of the post.
All the images enlarge.
If you have images that do the same for you, please add a link in the comments.
