Funnily enough, I think it's funny how much media thinks the fan bases are pitted against each other. They probably share more fans than not. I liken it to baseball and football. People tend to like one more than the other and still have at least a passing interest. But no one's talking about how baseball fans hate football fans or nonsense like that. That deleted scene from Pulp Fiction about Beatles fans vs. Elvis fans still sums it up best.

Saw this on Facebook.  The title was: "Cat Tree in Full Bloom"

That's amazing, it really is.  But, speaking as a DM who is planning for a session for Sunday, what happens when someone says "My character goes outside"?  That's one of the things I have to keep weighing: how much time am I going to invest in fleshing something out when it's entirely possible the players will decide to do something completely different?  Sure, there are tricks to give players the illusion of choice, but have all choices lead to the same place.  But I don't like to railroad my players to that extent. 

In actuality, if I really did build something like that, my players probably would spend most of their time exploring it, because they could see all the time and effort I put into creating it, and would assume that that's where the story is going to take place.  But personally I wouldn't want them to censor themselves that way, and put themselves in a box.  I like it when they are at their most creative.  And while that setup gives them a great visual as to what they see around them, it also limits their imagination to what is physically there. 

Now, I know you just posted a cool picture and weren't looking for Dungeon Master philosophy, but I thought I'd chime in regardless.
