Stunning Minecraft screenshot showing that a player created a large scale model of the Eiffel Tower in the game.
More than 10 years have passed since Minecraft was first released, but with new updates coming to the game, players refuse to put the popular sandbox survival game. This week has seen a lot remarkable Minecraft creationwith player artworks and mechanics that go viral almost daily.
One of these creations is actually a reconstruction of one of the world’s most iconic man-made structures, capturing it as a large-scale model in Minecraft. The structure in question is one of the tallest and most recognizable in the world, and is the heart of the city of Paris. If anyone is still guessing, the recreation is of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Reddit user md_yeamin_habib is the creator of the large scale model, post it Minecraft subreddit for all to see. Their creation is the inverse of wooden axolotl from Minecraft, instead, take a real-life model and put it in the game. They note in the title that the model is 2:1 ratio, but they later corrected the mistake in a comment, saying they meant it was half the scale of the original, not double.
When something from the real world comes in Minecraft, it tends to look weird due to the game’s block-based engine. For buildings, this usually doesn’t matter as long as they are built on a large scale; When done correctly, structures tend to look very realistic from a distance. Unfortunately, in the case of this Eiffel Tower model, the problem seems to be that the size of md_yeamin_habib is off. Comments were quick to point this out, saying the model looked stunted in the middle. When comparing the model with a picture of the original, there is a clear structural difference in the height of the two structures.
It’s also hard to tell how md_yeamin_habib built this model since they used a texture pack. It looks like the model is built entirely from stone blocks, but there may be some darker blocks in the model as well. However, these may just be shaders that make it look as if the blocks have different colors, as seen in one player Minecraft library.
Regardless of its minor flaws, the Eiffel Tower scale model looks amazing and clearly md_yeamin_habib took a long time to create. With some modifications, md_yeamin_habib can turn this well-scaled model into a perfect one. Perhaps now they can even scale the model up so that it has a giant 1:1 scale, representing a truly giant structure worthy of being next to their impressive Sphinx structure.
