Minas Tirith, 500 wide by 300 high + terrain.


This project has taken nearly a year to fully finish, and was made by only two people.




This build is made out of seven different layers, the top layer containing the White Tree of Gondor and the Citadel of Minas Tirith, the second, third, fourth and fifth layer have a gate, gates get smaller the higher the level gets (just like the level itself).
The city only has one main gate, the Great Gate of Minas Tirith, being the largest gate of all Middle-Earth.
There are also around ten catapults on towers in the map, providing more defense for the city.

The back of Minas Tirith rests on the Ered Nimrais (White Mountains)



Hundreds of unique buildings with interior including:



- Sewers
- Dungeon
- Mansion
- Guild hall
- Palace
- Town hall
- Tavern
- Seven layers
- Five smaller gates
- Great Gate
- Ten plus catapults
- White Tree of Gondor
- Custom landscape all around the build

According to this image there was.
We based the map on both the movies and the books, to make sure everyone would recognize it.
In the books the outer wall was black, like the Black Gate, but in the movies and our version, it's white, because in our opinion Peter Jackson's version looked better.

Hey epic, just a quick thing here
In the desc, it says "[size=medium][color=rgb(34,34,34)][bgcolor=rgb(204,204,204)]The city only has one main gate, the Great Gate of Minas Tirith, being the largest gate of all Middle-Earth.[/bgcolor][/color][/size][size=medium][color=rgb(34,34,34)][bgcolor=rgb(204,204,204)]"[/bgcolor][/color][/size]

Technically incorrect, the Black Gate, or the Morannon, is the largest gate in Middle Earth, spanning the vale of Udun

EpicQuestz
Level 70
Legendary Architect
October 26, 2013, 1:23 am

Well, the Morannon can't really be seen as a gate, even though it is called so and it can be opened. It is more like a large moving wall.
