The download file is 4GB zipped and once unzipped it is 12GB


This is an exciting Minecraft map that is an exact heightmap copy of Earth scaled at 1:1000

That is more then 200.000.000.000 Blocks Big.
This map was created by Yotan over the course of 3 years.
Inspired by the original earth map created by salexp back in 2011 which had a size of 1:1800.
This new and improved earth map that is almost 4x bigger then the original map.

Due to size (40000x20000 pixels) the full sized image of the map can't be posted on PMC.
So here are 2 download links for them.
Day Map
Night Map

undefined
* All the major landmasses of Earth
* 40000x20000 in size, 1 Block = 1 Kilometer
* Over 150 Rivers placed that all flow downstream from their sources
* Over 300 Cities marked on the map with a coal block and torch ontop
* Sea level is default Minecraft at 63
* A heightmap copy so only mountains where they need to be
* Biomes are done as they should be, so Amazon is a jungle and most of Northern Africa is a Desert ect

This map was created using the official NASA heightmaps.
Therefore the land is as at should be.

However keep in mind that at 1:1000 mountains would not be mountains but just hills so mountain height is upscaled by about 700%.
This means that Mount Everest stand 70 blocks tall above sea level instead of just 10.
The footprint of mountains stays the same so they look more like mountains.
You can look at the Mt. Everest Picture to see what I mean.
The programs used to create this map include worldpainter to render the heightmap, photoshop to paste the heightmaps together because the RAW files from NASA are 8 pieces of the map due to size limits.

Also MCEdit was used aswell as BiomePainter and a few smaller programs.
All together it took me from December 2012 to December 2015 to finish the map.
The rendering of the entire heightmap alone took more then 3 months.


This map is made for creative and lacks survival features, I might make a survival version 1 day but currently I have little time to do so.

While you can download the map for singleplayer use or for setting up your own server, I am hosting the Official Earth Server.
Please hop over to that post not only to check out the server but to also give me a Like and get my topic views up :)

Spawn Point is set in Africa where we first started to evolve into what we are today.
Here are the Coordinates for some famous locations:
Paris - France = 267 63 -5456
Washington D.C. - USA = -8598 63 -4348
Tokyo - Japan = 15595 63 -3976
Miami - USA = -8951 63 -2881
Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia = 11350 63 -347
Prague - Czech Republic = 1615 65 -5585

Coordinates Program
1 of the oldest members of my server wrote a program to make it easy to find locations on earth.
Just input Google Maps Coordinates and it should spit out the ingame coordinates for that location.

There's something weird happened in your Mediafire download. Whenever it gets to 1.9 GB, my computer suddenly freezes and the download is interrupted, so I can never download the map properly. If anyone knows why this will happen then please reply to me or re-upload the file. Thanks!

What application do you use to open this? My Minecraft Launcher can't, and I'm confused.
I have a Mac, but I don't know if that affects how the program runs, right? Please help me.

I don't understand what this would even look like unless you were in creative mode way up above it and then it would just look like a map. Most rivers aren't even 1 kilometer wide so they wouldn't even appear on this map at all. The grand canyon would be like at most 26 or 27 blocks wide in on or 2 places and only a few blocks wide the rest and only, what 1 or 2 blocks deep? I appreciate the amount of work involved but I can't see the result as anything other than a superflat world with a few different colored biomes dozens of hours of walking apart from each other and a few places with tiny bumps of hills. I am DLing and will update this if I am proven wrong

He says that he exaggerated certian features. For example

"However keep in mind that at 1:1000 mountains would not be mountains but just hills so mountain height is upscaled by about 700%.
This means that Mount Everest stand 70 blocks tall above sea level instead of just 10.
The footprint of mountains stays the same so they look more like mountains."

And the purpose of this is to be able to build where you live or create empires in a world like ours with actual significance rather than some randomly generated randomness. It's an Amazing world.

Possibly the worst map I have ever seen. Not only it's small, but the way you did it... ugh. it's horrible! The mountains are ugly, nothing is buildable, and oh gosh... please... you didn't even clean up the waterholes or anything!

Since I couldn't find a mark for it while exploring through Brazil, here's the coordinates: -5170, 72, 2648
I couldn't find the Indus River, though.

I like that this is a little bigger than letslente's map :)

Just a suggestion, maybe have separate maps for each continent (for people who don't want to have to download the entire map)

I think a bigger earth map would be epic (something like 1:150) but I think it's impossible to make (Worldpainter can't do it)

Dear Yotan,


Hello, I am creating a server, and would like to use your map. I would be grateful if you'd let me use it. If not, that's ok too I guess.



Sincerely,

No They dont.
I am currently working on a 1.10 Survival version of the map so people can play it in survival.
We have been testing several renders this last week to make sure everything is working.
I dont want to give atime frame but we are close.
