Hopefully by now you’re familiar with the Earth made in minecraft project, in which the entirety of the globe was recreated in Minecraft form. In its original incarnation, players could download a minecraft map of the earth. The terrain matched the real world, but there were no cities or buildings.
That has changed! The minecraft earth colonization project has a minecraft earth map available for download, with cities!
Several countries have already been added to the map. So you can now explore Russia (complete with their Antartic bases), Canada, Iceland, Morocco, Columbia and Palau. More countries are coming soon, so this is a minecraft project definitely worth keeping an eye on. Upcoming countries include the USA (so yes, you’ll be able to travel across the United States of America in Minecraft, perhaps following in the steps of Kerouac or Boone.) Also Venuzuela, Norway, Micronesia and Khazakstan.

If you’ve fallen in love with Bioshock Infinite, you’ll love this Bioshock Minecraft Map, recreating the entire City of Columbia in all its glory. This is not a 1:1 build, some artistic license has been taken, but if that sort of thing makes you mutter into your mustache, you’ll be pleased to know that the map maker is currently at work on a newer, bigger, and more exact recreation of the city.
Complete the monument whilst travelling through the Minecraft Gloom, discovering impressive builds from the natural to the iconic. This is a minecraft survival map with a goal. And an abandoned railway. And a really tall tower. And a forest made of creepers and vines. And. And. So many things. It’s beautiful and terrifying all at once. Which is perfect, because being beautiful and terrifying is precisely what minecraft is all about. (more…)
