Around Minecraft a huge community of fans has been generated, and now we are going to see some of thebest constructions that they have made. After spending millions of blocks and putting in months (or years) of work, some of the maps in Minecraft are truly impressive.
We have already explained how to install mods in Minecraft, which expand the possibilities of the game, but sometimes the community goes further with very ambitious constructionsWhether based on popular fictional universes, or own ideas, the proposals are many.
Here we collect some of the most striking, either because of their large size, playable depth or simply because they are curious and worth knowing:
King's Landing (Game of Thrones)
The capital of the Seven Kingdoms in the Game of Thrones series is depicted in great detail in this setting, including the Red Keep, the Sept of Baelor and the rest of the locations where the action takes place.
King's Landing is part of the WesterosCraft project, which includes buildings from the world of Game of Thrones: the fortress of Winterfell, the Wall, Highgarden, Casterly Rock, Pyke's Isles…
The Space Shuttle
It can't compete with large buildings, but this replica of NASA's space shuttle has a lot of charm, recreating in Minecraft a milestone in the history of space exploration.
In this case there is no interactivity and it is not possible to access the interior of the shuttle, but its launch tower and the nearby environmentprior to takeoff.
Continuing with the space theme, but in fiction, this model based on the ship Battlestar Galactica (from the series of the same name) uses more than 5 million blocks to reproduce all its details to scale.
The exterior is already complete, while the interior slowly continues to progress. One of the essential constructions for science fiction lovers who play Minecraft.
We have already explained how to make mechanisms with redstone in Minecraft, a material that allows the game to provide logic. Some constructs take this possibility very far, and a perfect example is a calculator that performs basic operations.
That is, the calculations are performed by connecting Minecraft blocks, which replicate the behavior of the circuits of a standard calculator. An extremely complex map, but interesting to know the fundamentals of electronics.
World of Warcraft
Under the name of Crafting Azeroth we have an initiative that seeks to transfer all the mapping of World of Warcraft to Minecraft, although the system is largely automatic, so not all the details match up.
Anyway, the result is worth it, because we are talking about a huge world, with scenarios, cities, dungeons and other constructions, which have been adapted to Minecraft blocks thanks to a single person.
Minas Tirith (The Lord of the Rings)
Another of the outstanding buildings of the fans is Minas Tirith, the fortified city that is capital of the kingdom ofGondor in the world of The Lord of the Rings. It not only reflects the exterior, but also the palace, the interior of some buildings and details such as the defensive catapults.
Only two people have made this map over the course of a year, proving that Minecraft is not short of interesting ideas, especially among fans of movies and series.
Another of the surprising constructions is this recreation of the Earth, our entire planet, where the different ecosystems are shown, the mountains, rivers and even some cities at a 1:1,500 scale.
Of course, the limitations of Minecraft have forced the world to be shaped like a cube and not a sphere, although the degree of detail is still impressive. A very interesting idea, which can be used to learn about the different areas of the Earth.
Hogwarts (Harry Potter)
This ambitious Minecraft map depicts Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in great detail, both the exterior and its halls and dungeons. It also includes other well-known locations from the Harry Potter books: Diagon Alley, Platform 9 3/4 and some London streets.
It is one of the most spectacular constructions in Minecraft, which has also care in the playable, as it offers puzzles, challenges and even the chance to practice Quidditch on a flying broomstick.
This original creation shows a city that travels on the back of a turtle, full of details, to the point that we can walk through its streets. It has a steampunk style, with an aesthetic typical of Victorian London, but more technologically advanced.
In addition, it is one of the few constructions that are finished, and its creator will no longer expand it, so we will be able to see the final result.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Another of the interactive constructions for Minecraft is the adaptation of a level from Sonic the Hedgehog, which challenges us to finish it as soon as possible, and that even integrates a cube-based timer.
An original idea, although the resemblance to the Sega title is not very high. We won't actually be playing Sonic himself, but the setting is based on Green Hill Zone, the opening level of the 1991 Mega Drive classic.
Perhaps this is the largest of all Minecraft constructions, as Greenfield is a full-scale city, where each edge of a cube represents 1 meter in the real world.
It's a project that's been almost 10 years in the making, and that means that Greenfield already has many neighborhoods: downtown, residential areas, ghettos, industrial estates, docks, airport…
Actually, Greenfield is still under development, incorporating many new elements, but we are already talking about a size where we can hardly miss it.
The creations that fans have designed thanks to Minecraft are countless, but some buildings stand out especially, and these 11 examples show that the game community is still in top form.
