Minecraft players recreate the entirety of Denmark

Friday, 25th April 2014 12:03 GMT By Dave Owen

Have you ever been to Denmark? Now you don’t need to, as a pair of Danish Minecraft players have built a 1:1 recreation of the entire country, based on data collected by the Danish GeoData Agency. Take a look at the video.

It was created by Simon Kokkendorf and Thorbjørn Nielsen out of 4 billion blocks. Spanning three servers, the entire thing comprises 1TB of data.

You have the option of visiting their servers, or you can opt to download Minecraft Denmark in 10km x 10km chunks. Is this the most impressive/insane Minecraft creation yet? I’m going with yes.

Thanks, RPS.

    The title is misleading, it makes you think people spent time to do this. This was actually done using a computer program that just took topological data and input it into a minecraft world. I can only imagine how long it took to calculate and build though, seeing as how the world is 1TB in file size
