Game Of Thrones In Minecraft Is Still Pretty As Hell

The folks behind Westeroscraft are hard at work on their ridiculous project to re-create the whole world of Game of Thrones in Minecraft. Their latest work: a total overhaul of King's Landing.

(Wondering how they got the pictures to look so good? Check out moderator Chris Henry's explanation to Kotaku.)

"[The new King's Landing] is over five times the size of the original and includes more than 2000 unique buildings, fully furnished, awesome ships, even houses outside the walls," project leader Jacob Granberry told me in an email. "It's without a doubt the best thing we've done on the server, and I'm not exaggerating one of the biggest and most impressive builds done in Minecraft to date. And it just so coincides with our server's first birthday."

To celebrate, they're running a charity drive. You can donate to their Child's Play fund on the official Westeroscraft website. Or just marvel at all of the pretty, pretty pictures.


    Some people just have too much time on their hands.

      The world would be an incredibly boring place if everyone had to dedicate every minute of their lives to what society considers to be positive 'productivity'.

      To quote a rather astute statement I found against one of my most hated phrases:

      "The most talented and creative people I know produce things at a rate that is at least an order of magnitude higher than I could ever follow. They get the same time as we all do - they just use it effectively. They all have day jobs, and they all go out and have fun. But they also have an inexplicable ability to be creative too. I wish I knew how this trick was pulled off and not knowing fills me with envy. But one thing is for certain: they don't have too much time on their hands. No-one does. It is argued that people who do literally nothing could be said to have too much time on their hands - but they fill their days somehow."

      FYI this is not an attack on you, zealous. As a creative, I just find that phrase mildly offensive. (also it's morning and I didn't get much sleep)

      Who are you to define what a waste of time is?

        Having visited the forums, and the server itself, I can say that while the work is impressive, the community on this server are some of the worst people. They treat new-comers like crap, complaining about them being in the way, no welcome feelings are all. The Administration Grief the new visitors as well for laughs, locking them in dungeons and prisons scattered around the server.

        So while some people do have too much time on their hands. They should be more appreciative of what they have.

        I say that you shouldn't have to say whether people waste there "precious time". If building huge detailed cities in minecraft is what they love to do, then let them. It's not doing any harm, and its one less person taking the spot of something you'd rather be doing.

    Holy, ... I love minecaft and that is awesome and extremly hard to do
