Does Minecraft news ever get old? Not really, as it as always refreshing to see a new mapper looking to create something outstanding in the world of Minecraft. Builder lentebriesje has especially amazed the Minecraft community with his idea to create a 1:1500 scale model of the continents we live on. Yes, we’re talking about Earth. It’s pretty crazy to take on such a task though. It’s almost as amazing as the guy who created a 1:1 scale of the Enterprise from Star Trek!
Current continents that are downloadable are North America, South America, Australia and Europe. PC Gamer managed to snag a few shots of the California coast and English Channel, which you can take a look at here. It’s always amazing seeing a mapper take on such a large project. I personally have to say that the best project we’ve seen yet has to be the 1:3 and 1:4 scale of J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle Earth. It’s absolutely stunning looking at what people are able to do in Minecraft.
I can hardly imagine what the next big project is going to be that comes out of the woodwork. Could we see a 1:1 scale of our solar system? Probably not. But I wouldn’t doubt that someone would try to take on the project and amaze the Minecraft community once again.
