In the case of Stardew Valley, simplicity works, and we can't be a bigger fan of the game.

The scale of this map is ridiculous. It is an absurd amount of land for a farm. It goes to show that hard work and dedication pays off. Instead of being near significantly large bodies of water, this farm's creator made good use of most the land.
