Chuncky Render of the 1:1000 Earth Map

WELCOME

There are a lot of creations of the entire planet earth available for Minecraft. Or at least there are a lot of (more or less good) attempts. The bad thing in my opinion is: most maps are completly outdated and/or aim to be as realistic as possible, but lack of playability. The focus of this …

What is the right scale for me? If you are playing alone or with some friends, use the 1:4000 scale. It’s still pretty huge and you have plenty of room. If you are running a server for up to 50 people, the 1:2000 scale should be perfect. If you want to create a massive multiplayer …

TILES: HEIGHTMAPS

There are some publicly available height maps, probably best known is SRTM of Nasa. The problem with this map: the land areas are only covered between the 60th northern and 58th southern latitude.

The only difference to the 1.13 version: Bees and Beehives Bamboo spawns in the normal jungle biome and the “jungle edge” biome was changed …

LEGACY: RELEASE #4

Changed some biomes to better correspond to the real world: Dfc (previously: Giant Tree Taiga Hills, now: Tundra) Dfb (previously: Tundra, now: Dark Forest) Dfa (previously: Dark Forest, now: Forest) Cfa (previously: Forest, now: Flower Forest) Added a *no features* version of the map without borders, streets, urban areas and custom ore deposits Added the …

LEGACY: RELEASE #3

Changed to Globcover data for ground material generation Added paths from OSM data (representing public railways between cities). See here Added sand and clay deposits (you can find them underground on y >= 48) Improved borders (again) – now also extracted from OSM data Improved the heightmaps again for better looking coastlines / rivers (some miscalculation …

LEGACY: STREETS

Actually real life railroads as ingame streets For easier navigation I added roads (using Minecrafts paths block), which have been extracted from OSM data. I used public railways as reference, because there are just to many real roads in areas like Europa and North America. Here is an image of Berlin (top right), the river …

LEGACY: TERRAIN

Previously I determined the terrain according to the biomes. The problem, in many places it’s not the reality. For example, in Egypt, especially the Nile Delta. On the Climate map, everything is a desert, but in reality, it’s all green around the Neil. So I took the GlobCover Data, which gives a better representation of …

LEGACY: RELEASE #2

Added ore deposits. See here Improved the heighmaps to get better rivers and smoother mountains Improved the borders: there are a little smaller now Improved terrain: Changed the custom terrain from “Noise” to “Blobs” – better for the eyes!

LEGACY: POPULATION

For the creative version: I used spigotmc to load and populate the map. With the plugin WorldBorder, I set a border and filled the map. *depends on the scale, e.g. “setcorners -21504 -10752 21504 10752” for the 1:1000 map. For the survival version: This was a lot harder to achive. When populating the map with …
