Hiya everyone! I’m sure fellow minecraft players are aware of the “Build the Earth” project that has been going on for over a year, where people volenteer to build areas from their city or monuments and then a select few people would create cities using these buildings.
Now, there isn’t really any way to add “claim areas” like they have done so all buildings would need to be created on seperate baseplates which could of course amount to some issues with exporting and importing the buildings.
However, it’s not impossible. With paricdil’s Building and Roads generator OpenStreetMaps can be used to get the correct dimensions. It wouldn’t really be possible to do the whole planet but some main cities such as London, Sydney, New York etc could be built with the help of the community.
The main aim of the game would be to teach younger users about the world. They would be free to explore the cities and learn about history, explore interiors and even explore with their friends. All profit would go to charity other than running costs of course.
I wouldn’t be able to actually fund the project so all these would need to be volenteer contributions, but I have made a poll to see who would be interested.
Any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
