After knowing about the map sims for a while and having received a few IMs from map travelers, I finally went to see when Salazar offered me a tp. They are certainly interesting to see, and I liked the big cogs, but it would be nice to be able to walk on the land.
It reminded me of being on a plane somewhere about 15 years ago or so, and talking to the nice man in the seat next to me who explained he gave workshops in organising data on computers. Asked how he organised it he said any way at all. I said (something like), "Ooh - so you could form it into a computer 3d landscape and then fly over it!" I was captivated at the idea but he just stared at me as I think he meant "pie" and "bar."
