It’s no secret that Minecraft has one of the largest game worlds, and a player spends a lot of time digging out a single map.
Since the release of the alpha in 2009 Minecraft has gone down as one of the most successful releases in all of gaming. Its appeal mainly stems from the fact that it will stand the test of time, allows players to let their imaginations run wild, is relaxing, and is also a video game that can be run on low-end PCs, making it appealing to even more fans becomes readily available. The fact that there is so much to do and see is what keeps people coming back and there are some mouth watering projects going on out there.
Take YouTuber Minthical as an example. As discovered by PCGamesN, this is Minecraft Players recently streamed themselves playing the game and showed the latest progress on a crazy quest they set themselves. Basically, for the past five years, they’ve been hollowing out the game’s world and bringing the whole thing down to bedrock level. The latest video shows them mining almost the equivalent of a single card, as can be seen in the bottom left corner of their uploaded stream. They hope to have all of this digging completed by September.
The total number of blocks to be mined is estimated at 47 million and as of last December Minthical had mined about 38 million blocks Minecraft. It’s worth reiterating here that the player doesn’t want to gouge out the entire world, just the amount that a single map covers. That’s still an impressive feat, however, and the fact that it’s taken them five years to date shows just how much of a Goliath task it is. As if that wasn’t enough, Minthical says that once they complete the Overworld, they will also go through the Nether and the End Dimensions.
Minecraft is one of the largest games in terms of map size, so it’s hardly surprising that this YouTuber takes so long to mine just one map’s blocks. With tens of millions of blocks, with each block equivalent to one cubic meter in the real world, the game has been estimated to be between five and eight times larger than Earth.
Given that, it’s no wonder Minecraft is a game where players can lose track of time. It has almost infinite replay value, and fans keep coming up with fascinating projects. Some would argue that what Minthical is doing is nothing short of insanity. However, it shows the sheer devotion of many fans and puts into perspective just how big Minecraft‘s world indeed is.
Minecraft is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
