I Tried Creating a Game Using Real-World Geographic Data

A little experimental game I've been working on recently, where you fly around a tiny version of the world and deliver packages to various cities. Would love to hear any ideas you might have about how this could be taken further!

The next episode about this project's development is now available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXD97...
