Minecraft: A Link to the Past

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a little while that I think is cool. Figured I’d share it here. It’s still only about two thirds done (not including the dark world. If it doesn’t look familliar, maybe try checking out this map.

If you still don’t recognize any of this, it’s the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past overworld map being recreated in Minecraft. You should go play it. Seriously, it’s awesome. These images were taken using MCEdit and the map is being made using the CommandBook and WorldEdit plugins. Combines two of the most awesome games ever.

Incidentally, there’s actually a lot of cool high-level stuff going on in Minecraft from a computer-sciencey point of view. At some point in the future, I’d like to talk about how computers can be (and have been) built in Minecraft, but that involves a fair bit of detail about circuits and Turing Machines that I’d just as soon get to at a later date. Something to look forward to though. 🙂
