Minecraft is an adventure game that is very successful because of its construction mechanics that allow you to build several (and large) works. And some players focus only on this part of the game, devoting a large hour of the day to real-world reproduction. Additionally, there are those who recreate areas inspired by other games and recreate unexpected pieces of art. Check out 10 amazing buildings in Minecraft below.

1. Tirith of Minas, from The Lord of the Rings
For fans of the Lord of the Rings film and book franchise, Minas Tirith Citadel is one of the most interesting maps created by user EpicQuestz. The construction, based on the works of author JRR Tolkien, details seven rings on different levels of the city, with towers, catapults and interiors. The city recreation was originally made with iron blocks and then upgraded to quartz blocks when they became available in the game.

The Minas Tirith map is an impressive 500 blocks wide by over 300 blocks tall, and the project took nearly a year to complete. Later, users used the same original map to create higher-quality 3D-rendered versions to capture high-resolution photos.
The iconic historical ship, which is also very popular from James Cameron’s movie, has been recreated many times in Minecraft, and each player can find his favorite version in different sizes and levels of detail. One of the most interesting was created by Miquel Sánchez Olmos for Minecraft Education Edition, an educational version of the game for schools.

In this version, the interior of the ship is empty and students try to fill it in as an activity while receiving instructions from Titanic Captain Edward Smith. There are also Redstone challenges to gain access to the bottom of the ship.
3. Westeros from Game of Thrones
Just as there are projects to recreate Tolkien’s Middle-earth, other high fantasy series are also getting a lot of attention from developers, such as Game of Thrones. The WesterosCraft server is based on the land of Westeros from the books by author George RR Martin and can be viewed online, but only in Minecraft: Java Edition.

The project was recognized by the official Minecraft website as one of the largest produced in more than 10 years with more than 59,000 maps spanning 22,000 blocks. The map was created by dozens of online players over the ages, with creator Will Blew and project manager Jacob Granbury. The server already has more than half of Westeros’ 500 cities, with landmarks like King’s Landing, Dragonstone Castle, Winterfell, and more.
Minecraft can be a difficult game on its higher difficulty levels, but for players who want something on a Dark Souls level, the Elden World map by SeriousCraft user is the best choice. Based on From Software’s Elden Ring game, the adventure map contains around 15 hours of content and allows you to encounter square versions of some of the game’s bosses.

The map recreates several locations from The Lands Between, such as the Elden Tree, as well as 20 in-game dungeons, including Stormveil Castle. Users will be able to equip up to 50 different weapons and 30 armors to choose from. Just like in the real Elden Ring, you can also call your friends to help fight enemies.
Another project that creates game maps is Rumsey’s stunning Crafting Azeroth, which features a 1:1 reproduction of the world of Blizzard’s popular MMORPG World of Warcraft. The map features areas such as Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, and the Great Sea, totaling over 100 billion blocks in size.

However, Crafting Azeroth uses an automated process that reinterprets the World of Warcraft map instead of having human players place blocks. Although its creator spent a lot of time choosing specific blocks to represent more than 10 thousand textures of the MMORPG, after completion, the reproduction was ready in 48 hours. The map also features caves and dungeons that are part of the main map, such as Blackrock Mountain, while others such as Blackrock Depths are not featured.
6. Starry Night, Van Gogh
One of the most creative Minecraft map ideas came from youtuber ChrisDaCow, who decided to make the famous work Starry Night by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh in 3D. The user created his own set of blocks to simulate brush strokes as if they were large painted areas.

The recreation was time-consuming and featured some unconventional ideas. For example, using glass blocks to make certain materials and objects look more attractive, such as trees. Once completed, the map allowed the beautiful painting to be seen in a different way, without being stuck at a fixed angle, with the ability to visit a small village under the sky and walk through its streets.
7. Night City, from Cyberpunk
While many maps based on the game offer flawless recreations, the Night City map from the Elysium Fire team is simply inspired by the game version and goes its own way. It should be remembered that Cyberpunk 2077 and its city was based on a tabletop RPG called Cyberpuk 2020, so this Minecraft map can offer a world to players who want to role-play with the help of 3D.

Players will be able to explore the suspended streets of the city with futuristic cars, enter large megacorporation buildings with dozens of floors and enjoy floating holographic images. However, the map is quite heavy and may cause crashes on weaker computers.
8. Witcher’s Novigrad
A construction that was also created by the Elysium Fire team and followed similar ideas of the Night City was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt map Novigrad. The detailed port city only takes inspiration from the video game version to create your own environment. Like Cyberpunk, The Witcher began as a series of books outside of the gaming world.

As with the capital of Gondor, the city of Novigrad has different vertical levels to explore, with houses, castles, walls and a large harbor on the higher and lower parts of the mountains, and a large stretch of sea to visit. ship. sailing.
9. Hogwarts, from Harry Potter
The famous wizarding school from the Harry Potter books and movies can become the setting for your Minecraft adventure with the “Witchcraft and Wizardry” map created by the Floo Network team. It’s an adventure map where players can explore the entire Hogwarts school, recreated with countless types of stone blocks, while completing quests, challenges and puzzles.

This map covers the entire length of the school and its surroundings, full of secret passages to discover, as well as Diagon Alley and the village of Hogsmeade. The gameplay uses mods, user-created modifications to provide spells for users and also offer other activities such as attending classes and even playing Quidditch matches.
10. Labyrinth, from The Shining
In the horror genre, user-created map Chris-P recreates the suspenseful plant maze from director Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The user used a scene from the movie, in which miniatures of the maze can be seen, to recreate it with blocks of leaves and allow players to experience the same feeling as the hero Jack Torrance, perhaps with an ax in hand.

The curious thing is that Chris-P wanted to fill the map with the Overlook Hotel, which is shown in the movie, but found that it would not be possible. The recordings were made on location, but the version of the hotel seen in the film is physically impossible to exist as there are corridors, doors and windows that overlap or lead nowhere.
