I am rebuilding Lothric Castle from Dark Souls 3 in 1:1 scale in survival minecraft.

Project is almost completely my own work, with some contribution from others on my server who gather resources. The only thing that has been done outside of survival is to sink the castle down to bedrock so that it will fit within the height limit. The project is a massive one that I started back in October of 2016, and I hope you enjoy it! Unfortunately the project is currently not available to tour, but check out the the pictures and stop in often for updates. Thanks for the support! Let me know what pictures you'd like to see of the project!

Hey, Amazing project! Is it possible to get a world download of it pre-completion? If not that's completely fair and I look forward to seeing it when its completed. I am just amazed by the scale and accuracy to the game having been completely entirely in survival.

Hey! I know this is an old post but I'm just wondering how exactly do you get into the details of lothric castle (specifically the unplayable areas). I've been examining lothric castle basically since I started playing the game from all over the game and I wanted to build something inspired by it. I have some of the wall designs done but I want to get the full blueprint of the main part of the castle without all of the buildings on the ground. I am by no means trying to recreate the castle but trying to make something with the skeleton. So do you have some sort of model or free cam mod you use to examine the castle in more detail? I couldn't find anything on the castle's model anywhere. I'm mostly having trouble figuring out the shape of the base of the castle. This is an amazing project, props to you for recreating such an amazing map from one of my favorite games.

An active post to this day! Still a project I'm working on. So I use a program called "Cheat Engine" which allows me to detach the camera from the character. From there I can fly around the map. I still have to snap the camera back to the character and move it to different areas to load them, but that's how I was able to do it.

I wish you luck on your endeavor, and I hope this helps! I'm glad you enjoy the project!

This would be amazing enough if it was built in creative but the fact that you built this alone almost completely in survival is absolutely astounding. Great work!

Thank you so much! I really need to get back to this. Terraforming is slow work and hard to do...
