    So, I saw this thread on another forum called "Mapping Inspirations".
    So I kinda stole the idea, and made it here on Otland, since there are no such thread yet.

    The thread is mostly for people to get inspired to map something new...
    It can be real life pictures of cool places or mapping pictures that you think gives inspiration and the will to map something...
    Don't know if this thread deserves Sticky, but I would recommend it.
    Anyways, here is a picture that inspired me to map some time ago...
