This participant recreated your complete universe in Minecraft
And it’s insanely beautiful
Each now and again, I see one thing a participant has created on Reddit or Twitter, and it makes me think about video video games once more. I’ve been feeling a bit run down after the tumultuous Overwatch 2 launch this week, however then I noticed one thing so lovely, it made me bear in mind what a phenomenal medium video games may be: a Minecraft participant recreated your complete universe within the recreation. Yeah, it’s simply as lovely because it sounds.
Consumer u/ChrisDaCow uploaded a video of his work to the Minecraft subreddit, amongst different websites, earlier this week, and the put up has amassed extra awards than I’ve ever seen on Reddit earlier than. The construct encompasses a black gap, a nebula, the entire photo voltaic system, and a brilliant cluster.
ChrisDaCow additionally made an entire vlog documenting to technique of the construct, which I discover fascinating as somebody who hasn’t performed greater than a handful of hours in Minecraft. He says one of the vital helpful instruments that made your complete construct attainable is the truth that you’ll be able to “paint with mild” within the recreation (one thing I by no means knew was a factor), which allowed him to recreate how mild truly works in area.
He additionally needed to scale the blocks means down to suit every part into one Minecraft world, and Chris even breaks out some math to verify to get the dimensions of Saturn’s rings good. I’m severely impressed by how a lot effort he put into this entire factor, and I get the sensation it’s going to go down as one of many all time best Minecraft builds of all time.
Not gonna lie, I normally have a great deal of existential dread rattling round, however seeing our universe depicted so superbly and with a lot care helps me see issues in a brand new mild.
