17 Amazing Minecraft Creations That Will Blow Your Mind
By Matthew Walden on
1. Los Angelcraft
Outside of GTA V, this Minecraft monstrosity may be the most evocative recreation of Los Angeles in a video game. Creator Fujiwara1990 clearly went the extra mile: every single building visible is accessible and furnished.
2. Portal Texture Pack
A lot of recreations have been built in Minecraft, but most of them end up feeling slightly wonky. This Portal texture pack by carlotta4th absolutely nails the atmosphere of Valve’s masterpiece.
3. Conan O’Brien's Show
Although Conan’s proposal for an entire Minecraft episode of his show got squashed, the small tease they gave us of Andy and Conan’s adventures in the Minecraft universe were delightfully charming.
4. Acropolis of Athens
As Pericles said to the Athenians upon the erection of the ancient citadel, “What you leave behind isn’t what’s engraved in stone monuments, but what’s woven into the lives of others.” Good work, gtofan74.
5. Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 64
The only possible thing harder than racing this notoriously difficult track from Mario Kart 64 is building it block by block in Minecraft. We hope creator chocobokupo makes more tracks from the classic racer!
6. Adventure Time’s Candy Kingdom
While this castle from Ooo is impressive enough, designer Flame Prince Finn has also created the iconic Tree Fort too. Such talent is beyond comprehension! Beyond space! Beyond time!
7. Fort Bulwark
While this military base by the sea inherits its name from Oblivion, this is a much more modern take that exists in its own universe. Creator GolankaSwe now owns the ocean.
8. Zelda Adventure Map
Everything you love from the classic Zelda universe exists in this map filled with six dungeons and plenty of bombs, bats, and boomerangs. One of the early Minecraft hits from Gary520.
Winterfell is just a small glimpse of the amazingly ambitious undertaking by a group of 125 dedicated Game of Thrones fans. Look up the Welcome To WesterosCraft video and hang on to your jaw.
The past and future of games collide in this mashup of the Myst and Minecraft mythos. If you stare into the auburn sunset you can see the sun setting on an older generation of gamers.
11. Apocalyptic Church
Some of the most impressive Minecraft creations come directly from the minds of their designers, like this Gothic cathedral created by linusaccount. Intimidating enough to inspire its own lore.
12. Star Wars Trench Run
Fundamental design flaws in the original Death Star aside (why is there a vulnerable hole leading straight to the main reactor?) this fan made Minecraft movie by Paradise Decay totally kills it.
And here’s where Wall-E’s condemnation of entertainment folds in itself. This intricate creation of the beloved robot took so much work it’s the exact opposite of the lazy dystopia the movie predicted.
14. Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings
The City of the Kings has rarely loomed so large in our imagination. It would be a terrible shame if some Orcs and Creepers teamed up to take it down. Exemplary work by Cornbass.
15. All 151 Original Pokémon
QueenMercury has made a grand homage to all 151 original Pokémon, designing each one by hand without the aid of a scripting program. Pikachu’s just the tip of this obsessive iceberg.
16. Battlestar Galactica
It took over 5 million blocks and nearly half a year for Ragnur Le Barbare to create this lifesize model of the legendary ship. The kind of dedication only a Cylon could muster.
Mrc93’s creation of Jordan’s historic landmark might be the 8th Wonder of the World. If UNESCO isn’t successful in protecting the world heritage sight, we’ll always have the Minecraft version.
