Earth 1:1000 Map is an exciting Minecraft map that is an exact heightmap copy of Earth scaled at 1:1000. That is more then 200.000.000.000 Blocks Big. The download file is 4GB zipped and once unzipped it is 12GB

Map features:

  • All the major landmasses of Earth
  • 40000×20000 in size, 1 Block = 1 Kilometer
  • Over 150 Rivers placed that all flow downstream from their sources
  • Over 300 Cities marked on the map with a coal block and torch ontop
  • Sea level is default Minecraft at 63
  • A heightmap copy so only mountains where they need to be
  • Biomes are done as they should be, so Amazon is a jungle and most of Northern Africa is a Desert ect

Creation of earth:

  • This map was created using the official NASA heightmaps.
  • Therefore the land is as at should be.
  • However keep in mind that at 1:1000 mountains would not be mountains but just hills so mountain height is upscaled by about 700%.
  • This means that Mount Everest stand 70 blocks tall above sea level instead of just 10.
  • The footprint of mountains stays the same so they look more like mountains.
  • You can look at the Mt. Everest Picture to see what I mean.
  • The programs used to create this map include worldpainter to render the heightmap, photoshop to paste the heightmaps
  • together because the RAW files from NASA are 8 pieces of the map due to size limits.
  • Also MCEdit was used aswell as BiomePainter and a few smaller programs.
  • All together it took me from December 2012 to December 2015 to finish the map.
  • The rendering of the entire heightmap alone took more then 3 months.
