Minecraft Project: Planet Earth 1:1
So, people have finally made it possible to scale the entire planet Earth in Minecraft to a (somewhat) 1:1 scale. Here’s what the creators had to say:
“The world is fully playable (includes ores, trees, etc). Elevation has been scaled to fit the constraints of a Minecraft world. Sea level was adjusted to 40 blocks which puts Mt. Everest at 121 blocks high. The Earth was generated with various images from NASA (including landmass, satellite, elevation, and vegetation maps) using a custom python script incorporating codewarrior’s pymclevel python library.”
It’s a hefty file, but here you go. Enjoy not doing anything productive for a week to a month.
