    A 1:1 recreation of the entire universe in Minecraft is still a couple years away but there's no denying it is inevitable.

    I'm surprised you didn't mention the 1:1 earth project. I mean it's not finished but they have whole cities completed already and all of Antarctica is finished.

    • Diamondman307
      Diamondman307 2 months ago +102

      As a BTE builder, that's actually a bit of a misnomer - no cities are fully complete, and all of the *buildings* in Antarctica are done, just not the terrain.

    • The4thSoul
      The4thSoul 2 months ago +38

      Im afraid the BTE project can NOT build the earth. As the earth is constantly changing meaning the data will be inconsitent and some errors will be made

    • Kell Medd
      Kell Medd 2 months ago +65

      @The4thSoul Well, one can build the Earth at a certain point in time. So in a sense it would be 1:1, but some things would be obsolete compared to y'know, times changing.

    The dragons' size made me physically anxious. Like I know its a bunch of blocks in a game on a screen but the second I tried to comprehend the scale of such a creature, my brain recoiled and I shivered in terror. Unimaginable dread. I applaud you, Roman...

    It's worth noting the Enterprise D is, so far, the largest starship to carry the name being a Galaxy class ship
    Building that 1:1 means setting yourself the biggest challenge you could

  • Lord Jon25

    There is something so nostalgic and epic in the 2010's enterprise that personaly it still gives me goosebumps today and is one of the most iconic builds ever. Good job on the video and thanks for nostalgia and for featuring the piston :).

    Definitely should have had Wynncraft on here. Not only do they have crazy megabuilds but they also created a whole mmorpg around it as well.

  • Bread

    I gotta say the ad for this video is insanely smart. Intermixing a build video with a sort of combination for what’s being advertised, then making the MC gameplay actually play into the gameplay of the game being advertised. Well done.

    There was also Skyrim (or part of Skyrim) recreated for the Skyrim texture pack in console, which was crazy to see.
    And now Grazzy is recreating the entire map of Breath of the Wild. Granted, it isn't just placed by hand, but an insane endeavor nonetheless.

    I remember trying to speed up building with MCEdit before WorldEdit/FAWE was a thing... heck, I remember using a "magic carpet" plugin to get a glass platform beneath your feet on a hey0mod server around way before flying was (re-)added.
    New builders have all the tools they could ever want, there's never been a better time to get into building.

  • SirCatsal0t
    SirCatsal0t 2 months ago +1

    I had a period in 2020-2021 where I went absolutely ballistic making a new megabuild every month with my smallest one being 400x400 blocks, I entered building competitions and got 3rd place in one. But the stupid part was I never backed up any of my builds and the server i built them on shut creative down for good in 2022. So now, all I have to show for it might be a couple screenshots scattered within discord messages or hidden somewhere on my harddrive. Sadge

    I have a city world which is existing for 2 years since 1.16.5 and the only mega build there is the airport which is still not fully finished,
    besides that we have some houses and buildings and another "mega-build" called Mt. nahi which is a mountain (I named this mountain in early 2022 so don't question), we are adding more mountains there which will be a border to north part of our city.
    Our City name is Arterex and we treat it like a state and since we are Indians we treat is as an Indian state
