WesterosCraft (TIME magazine)
So, I got the new TIME magazine (June 3 2013) in the mail today... and inside, there's an article titled:
The Mystery of MINECRAFT
With the creators, Markus Persson & Jens Bergensten wielding pixilated swords lol.
As I turn the page, I am immediately drawn to this image of "WesterosCraft"... a re-creation of the fictional contingent from "Game of Thrones".
Upon further reading, I read that it was designed by a crew of 500 volunteers... this place is impressive, if I say so myself.
- 500 square miles of virtual land, about the size of Los Angeles.
- 1.3 billion blocks of real estate in a 59,000 by 22,000 block grid.
- 8,000 structures in WesterosCraft (give or take -- no one has explored all of it).
The article goes into more detail talking to the creators, about Mojang as a company, etc.
If you don't know what WesterosCraft looks like, here's a few images.

Not a small project they're building.
1.3 Billion block is massive.
