Some months ago we reported on one extremely bored and dedicated Minecraft player who has decided to recreate the whole of GTA V inside the voxel based survival-construction game.
Since that article went up, N11ck has recruited 15 other equally bored and/or insane (in a good way, honest) people to assist with the ambitious project. Their undertaking has garnered the team quite a following and N11ck has been updating fans of their progress via Youtube videos. Since the original post, they’ve made immense progress in their project, proving their dedication. If only people cared as much about things that actually mattered as much as they do about things like this (and sports), imagine what a paradise our world would be!
The development and growth of Minecraft could accurately be tracked via the kinds of fan creations that cropped up. As time went on, and newer and newer features were added to the game, player creations grew in size and complexity. First you had a small-scale model of, say, Minas Tirith from the Lord of the Rings. Then someone made Hobbiton. Then a life-sized Minas Tirith. Then the whole of freaking Middle Earth. The recreation of GTA V’s Los Santos and Blain County is hardly the first massive Minecraft project, but so far it does seem to be the most detailed one.
All of this began when N11ck just recreated Michael’s house from GTA V. The success of his efforts then inspired him to leap all the way to making the entire map (talk about skipping steps), which he began on his own.
You can check out the team’s progress in this incredibly impressive interactive 360 degree map-video, showing off the incredible level of detail they have put into recreating Los Santos. Have you guys ever attempted to recreate anything GTA V related in Minecraft?
