Wow.


Also, WoW! Check out Crafting Azeroth.

Some clever modders with "focus" have recreated World of Warcraft's entire world within Minecraft. Want to see it? You can download the world, just make sure you have 24 Gig on your hardrive to hold it. I'll just appreciate the many pictures, including "before and after" shots comparing the original with the blocky duplicate.

I have to admit it's pretty incredible.

Amazing.

Though, because I can't be happy with anything, I kinda wish they'd done the original Azeroth, before the Cataclysm. But now that I think about it, I think Minecraft is mostly a post-Cataclysm invention.

So..... Marq, CT, and Ember are going to work on recreating Atlas Park for us so that we can still run around Paragon city when those servers go down, right? Wink

I was thinking that this would be a great idea, and did a search to see if someone else had begun working on it. I found a thread on the CoH forums suggesting the idea and a dozen responses all saying "what are you, nuts?"

Lol... honestly, it would be cool, but it would take a seriously concerted effort.... I may forgo the Rikty Crash Site I started on the current world in favour of a small monument to AP, though.

Would you want it computer generated or lovingly crafted by hand?

It would be a cool tribute either way... obviously handcrafted is always cooler, but if it is a toss up between having it done or not, then computer generated is mcuh better than not at all.

Frankly, the only way it could ever be completed accurately, timely, and without undue strain would be to generate it.

Seriously, let's do it. What would we need to get started?

Just one more block and I swear I'll stop.

It's never too early for a glass of wine and some zombie shooting.

I'm not joking- let's seriously see what we can do to get at least AP City Hall rendered. And it doesn't need to be a new world. The whole Southwest quadrant of the current one is almost untouched.

I meant Krog's start a new world bit.  I am all for recreating AP33.

Pick a corner of the current world (like the Southwest) and start with one building project. Don't expect the whole zone to be recreated, but a building or statue or two would be nice.

Ok, I got this. Give me a day to draw up the plans.

Anything I can do to help? My test is on Friday night, but after that I should be able to actually log some game time again. Smile
