A group called WesterosCraft is remaking Westeros, one of the three giant continents from George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones, in Minecraft.
I just don't understand. I guess it's art or something, but I just don't get using minecraft as a medium. While I was taking some classes a couple of years ago, I overheard some guy in the class bragging about how he recreated the Death Star all in obsidian in minecraft, and how it took him 12 hours or something like that and all I could think was, "Wouldn't you rather be playing a game? Reading a book? Learning a new language? Something?" To each his own, I guess.
These guys are dedicated and they make everything 1:1 scale lol. Also you have to admit, building in Minecraft is much simpler that using autocad or something to model the entire setting. Also they do it on servers so it's a social thing.
What kind of ignorant comment is this? People say the same thing about playing Videogames and you talk about someone who chooses to spend time on a game you have no interest in? Welcome to the world of diversity. He can brag just like the guy that brags about kill streaks and about liveries for Forza.
It's one of those hate it or love it things. I love the freaking game. The idea that you can think up of some structure/object and build it up is quite awesome. The only limitations are your imagination and finding time to play the game (the latter being a problem in my case). Bought it when it was still in the beta stage and I spent many fun hours just building things, but not anymore due to lack of time. I found it incredibly engaging and highly entertaining. Some of my friends still don't get the whole idea behind Minecraft because they can't find familiar ideas like objectives, missions, quests, boss fights story lines etc in the game itself. I could also guess that it depends on what type of person you are or kinds of games you enjoy. Some people for instance, enjoy building things with tools while others don't. For similar reasons, LittleBigPlanet falls into this category with other stuff such as 3D modelling and software coding, as stuff that activate my brain when I interact/do things. But hey, not all people are the same. Looking at these screen shots, this is an incredible/crazy/insane amount of work being put in this map!
Amazing! I've seen some crazy things in Minecraft as I've played it quite a bit and am quite fond of the internets, but I think this takes the cake. And this cake is not a lie.
