Minecraft: two of the most amazing projects that you will like


Video games have evolved over time, with increasingly powerful graphics engines and graphics that increasingly resemble reality. A trend that has also been followed by the game AI itself, as well as the increasingly realistic dynamics. Game studios invest huge amounts in developing incredible stories and titles to amaze their fans. Instead, oddities like Minecraft that revolutionizes the industry without any of the above ingredients.

The video game of Swedish origin has managed to captivate a large number of users despite its rough graphics and simplicity of play. Thus, it has shown that it is not necessary so much realism and so much progress to know how to penetrate this sector of digital entertainment. This also applies to retro games, which despite being primitive, never go out of style. However, Minecraft has managed to gain in complexity thanks to some projects that have arisen around it and even be a great tool for classrooms.

You already know that the Minecraft development company was bought by Microsoft, and although they continue to maintain the base title for Linux, they no longer carry the new developments for Linux. But that does not mean that you can have great moments with this classic.

Also, this time I will show you two interesting projects that have shocked me when I have seen what they intend to do. And they aren't the only awesome projects that use Minecraft as a base. On another occasion I will tell you more. But these two aim to recreate places, areas that you know quite well:

  • Planet Earth: yes, as you are reading ... this huge and colossal project aims to turn the entire planet at 1: 1 scale into a huge Minecraft map, recreating every detail of the geology, each city, etc. full scale. So that you can see the world as it is, but something more squared ... Obviously that will take time and an arduous task to achieve it. You can see more information here.
  • Chernobyl: something less stratospheric than the above is another project that arises to recreate Chernobyl. That area continues to generate great excitement to this day, and has been the basis for many other video games, movies, and mysterious stories. After the accident at the nuclear power plant, Pripiat has taken on a huge role. And now it also comes to Minecraft thanks to the work of a player of this game who has dedicated 2 years of his life to this project. In this case, he also has 95% left to finish, but now it is possible to test what you have completed and it looks very good.

If you wonder how these maps are created, the truth is that it is a matter of time, dedication and programs that help you with it as the tools McEdit2 o WorldPainter. Do you dare to do one?
