While I think postal up over 10000 may be a little much however it’s different. Not everything has to be like DOJ’s. Thrive to be something else and not just a carbon copy server like the rest. With that said the people over in mine enjoy the maps personally and like how detailed it is as @Virus_City stated it gives an accurate idea where you are for let’s say a panic button.
To each their own but I enjoy it and seems others do as well.
