This is an attempt to create Apple's new "spaceship" campus, Apple Campus 2, in Minecraft. I've been working on it for over a year. Recently, I've started cracking down on it and hope to finish it before the new campus actually opens. What drew me to this is my appreciation for Apple, end to end design, and the crazy idea in my head that said "Hey let's build the world's roundest most non-linear campus in a video game that's based on SQUARES." Anyways, here's a few key points of interest:

-It's terrain-accurate. Using topographical maps along with the actual landscaping construction plans, this will be accurate to the terrain in Cupertino. This is most evident on the sidewalks bordering the property, which vary in height by 11 blocks (so far).
-This is built entirely by hand, solo and without mods (on the Xbox One edition).
-As of February 14th, I've put 232 hours of work into the project (yes, I have a log).
-The main building is 469 blocks across.
-It's an exact replica. Every hill, path, and orchard are true to the construction plans, DOWN TO THE PLACEMENT OF EACH INDIVIDUAL CHERRY TREE.
-This campus is absolutely MASSIVE. And easy to get lost in according to anyone I give a tour to.
Progress: 50% Complete

Dug out entrance tunnel. Finished the interior and roofed it over. Also created a quick video preview of the campus so far.

Finished the athletic center and fields, photo attached. Also did a tiny bit of work on the main entrance road on the west side that leads to the tunnel, and I'm deciding whether I want to just build the tunnel entrance or dig the whole tunnel through to the parking garages.

Reached 200 hour milestone. I'm nearly finished with the interior park, with only the NE orchard left to plant. I'm currently putting a lot of time into digging out the northern edge of the property, which has the lowest elevation. It's times like this that I regret committing to no mods.

Most importantly, I updated the photos to give you a closer look at the atriums, cafeteria, interior park cafes, bus stop, and the fountain. Dig in!
