Object building, especially megaobject building, is a side pursuit in Minecraft's classic creative mode that's gotten so much attention that folks who haven't played the game don't know of its survivalist objectives. The latest doozy: Earth.
YouTube user roddds469 built this by using a NASA terrain height map. It's a smaller-scale, 1,000-by-500 block test before he moves on to larger size. The terrain colour and the Earth's weather are likely incorrect, as this was meant only to see if he could properly import the height map.
It has a ways to go before this can be properly called a scale replica. But for those who find themselves poring over maps for no apparent reason, it's a great Sunday afternoon diversion.
