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!

Update #11 - 6/16/22 : by thewombatofdoom 06/16/2022 5:02:42 pmJun 16th

I have been diligently working on the archives, finishing out rooms and giving the area a good polish. I've been updating flooring to reflect the tile in sections of the great structure, adding tables, chairs, bookshelves to the areas I've already built, and I've completed the outrider knight room, the main central bridge within the archives, and the elevator chamber right next to the bridge. All that's left is the lower elevator room, and the big room just after the wax pool, as well as a few details on the roof such as additional towers, and the playable area of the Archives will be complete! That's a huge accomplishment, as the Archives was the main reason I wanted to build this project in the first place, I'm so stoked to have the interior just about done. The outside will be another story all together...

The second bridge is fully connected, and while it's not perfect, I'm comfortable with where it is at and have made due. Creative liberties and all.

I also dabbled a little at starting Oceiros' room, making the initial hall. I'm quickly realizing it might be better to work from the Twin Keep first to see where the skirting falls, to make sure the lowest areas line up correctly.

Still, big things are happening, and we've had steady progress!

Since it is on a private server, there is no available download. However, I'm glad you enjoy!

Fair enough, if I wanted to do that. This world will not be available to be downloaded until the project is done, and I get permission from everyone else on the server who has builds in it, as well as the server owner. Until then, enjoy the pictures!

I'll probably do a video tour on youtube, and eventually if my server owner is okay with it, i might when its complete allow people to come online as spectators to see the build! But that's still a ways away, unfortunately. Its my favorite castle too, and inspired me to play dark souls! I actually started this project without ever having played the game (but I quickly changed that). Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad you like it!

There is a chance that the world will be accessible by server, instead of by download. In some capacity, I intend to make it available to access, once it is done.

It is simply magnificent the work you have done, undoubtedly a job that requires time and too much dedication, my mouth was open to see this beautiful work, even so, I wish you could already give the option to download, even if the project is not finished is undeniable that it is a fabulous job that I would like to go through on my own.

Thank you for your kind words! I'll be honest as i've been making progress on this map, a huge smile has been growing on my face. There is a lot to do, but we are growing ever closer to completion. I'm sorry you can't walk through it just yet, but I'm looking forward to the time where I can say I'm done! Now that we've picked up momentum, that will hopefully be sooner than the amount of time the first half took!
