The game engine could alter the map for displaying purposes

Gameplay-wise, it makes sense to have flat levels, especially
considering that, in real life, the curvature of the earth isn't
really obvious(except for specific cases, like a boat going into the
horizon)

Well... I would say that it is obvious, otherwise you'd be able to see
mountains, tall buildings, and other such things from much, much farther
away.

Okay, maybe it's just obvious to me, because I think things like that.

Some of the large scale virtual worlds have a curved surface. "There" did.

Not really, because perspective would make them appear smaller and
smaller over a distance until they are no longer visible.

And in practice it often seems to be haze that ends up doing the job.
