Holy crap! Someone spent a lot of time creating ‘King’s Landing’, an extremely detailed Minecraft map that will blow your mind [Image]

How many dotTechies play Minecraft? I don’t and never will; I just don’t understand the point of spending hours to build something just for the sake of building something. (Unless I’m pissing the point of Minecraft.)  However, clearly there is some appeal of Minecraft because millions of people play it around the world… even if I don’t understand it myself.

Maybe the reason I don’t understand Minecraft is because I don’t have patience. Definitely not the patience that would have been required to build the following map, dubbed ‘King’s Landing’. Check it out:

Wow!

The map was built by the people over at WesterosCraft, contains roughly 3,000 unique buildings, and is almost 35 GB is size. It took 101 people to build the map over the time span of four months. I wonder how they plan on monetizing all that effort, if at all.

    It is this King’s Landing from A Song of Ice and Fire in Game of Thrones:

    This from A Wiki of Ice and Fire http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/King%E2%80%99s_Landing :

    King’s Landing is the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, located on the east coast of Westeros, overlooking Blackwater Bay.

    It is the site of the Iron Throne and the Red Keep, the seat of the King.

    The main city is surrounded by a wall, manned by the City Watch of King’s Landing, also known as the Gold Cloaks.

    Poorer smallfolk build shanty settlements outside the city.

    King’s Landing is extremely populous, but rather unsightly and dirty compared to other cities

    I have one guilty pleasure as far as PC games are concerned – Out of the Park Baseball. I have spent untold hours creating leagues and populating them with players that have to be edited, all before the first game is played. For me, it’s relaxing, so from that perspective I can see “wasting” that much time on something.

    Hello, all.
    Just to add to the insanity, there are a number of actual places named “King’s Landing”. Is this “King’s Landing” supposed to represent any of the ‘real’ “King’s Landings”?

    Have a GREAT day, neighbors!
