Helm's Deep, 300 wide by 150 high + terrain and huge Glittering Caves beyond the Keep.

Update #1: Terrain updated with a more realistic look, road added, sidekeep added, more detail changes, gates improved, new shader screenshots, smoother border with the normal world!

Update #2: Completely redone Keep, new fancy trailer and added Glittering Caves behind the keep, as well as making the river come out of a sink in the mountains instead of a waterfall.

This project has taken around a week to create and was fully made by 4 people.

So I need some help... I know how to use world downloads. In fact, I've downloaded this very map about a month ago, but recently I had to reset my PC and I'm trying to re download it. But every time I extract it, there's no Data folder or anything like that. Only region folder and a few singular files, including session.lock. Any way to fix that? I REALLY want to get this map back. I tested out a few other maps from different builders and they worked... Has the download changed recently?
can i use this in a server?

I have seen a lot of Helm's Deeps, created by different people, and this one is the best I have seen! :)
Amazing as usual!

This is the best minecraft Helm's Deep build I have ever seen Epic! DIAMOND!
I think the map is amazing! Here's a few things I would like to see in a later update of the map.
1. HELMS DIKE- this is an ancient entrenchment and rampart that has hills in front ofbthe fort with a deep trench in front. For reference look at MCME's helms dike. There should be a gate and culvert where the deeping stream flows out instead of a simple bridge over the breach tho.
2. Horn of helm: during the battle when the uruks break the keep gate an auto-text could say "the horn of helm hammerhand sounds! Forth eorlingas!
3. Scaling ladders on the keep- making the scaling ladder things that go in front of the wall on te keep!
these r just suggestions to ma your epic map even more epic. Thnx for reading!

1. We based it mostly on the movies, I know Helm's Dike's in the books, but we didn't feel like it'd work in the server battle, so we kept it out.
2. It actually says that of the Horn and Forth Eorlingas.
3. We felt like the current ladders were enough.
I completely get your reasoning. Thanks for taking a look anyways! Have a neck day!

You know, Helm's Deep in Lord of The Rings Online has Helm's Dike, and even towers on the Fortress and the wall with siege weapons, like catapults, and ballistas, and the Glittering Caves are actually behind the wall not the Keep, but in the Epic Battles instances, after the wall is blown up, The battle continues in the Deeping Coomb before the Rohirrim retreat like in the movie, so I have a suggestion of having a capture point at the wall after it's blown up so it kind of has a better purpose. Anyway I've just downloaded the map, and i'm checking it out but there is a slight problem, there are a lot of chunk and render glitches, thankfully mostly render glitches though that are a bit disappointing, it's as if the map has a render distance of its own, that's quite peculiar isn't it?

You can go from the wall to the caves using the sink.
We are planning to add a wall, horn and maybe some other flag sometime soon.

We used extreme render distance and infinite render distance of Optifine and Chunky to make those screenshots/videos, which is why you don't see it like that.
The build is basically too big to view with normal render distance.
Yay its hereee! :D
Goddam this looks so similar to mine. I built my first Helm's deep when world painter first came out and we almost have identical ones except your hall is actually done and mine has statues xD


Heres a link in case you want to check it out :)

I like your wall more than ours, yours isn't as straight as ours.
We just updated our version with caves and a new keep :)
Haha i will have to download and check it out.


I got to that point and realised the actual maps that Tolkien had and the movie are totally different so i was torn between recreating the visual or the actual works.







You really have captured the movie build almost as perfectly as building blocks allow. Amazing work (Y)
Hey guys of EpicQuestz I am trying to make an epic Lord of the Rings pvp map with class systems different game modes like castle siege, free for all, capture the flag and many more. For this I was wondering if I could use you maps (helms deep but maybe also some of the others) as they are so incredibly well made. I will ofcourse give all of you information in the map.

Hey guys, a few questions...

  1. Are you going to add the Glittering Caves to this later on?

  2. Could I possibly use this map for a few YouTube videos? (I can only record up to 10 minutes :P)

  3. Is there a way to blow up the wall without making a hole in the ground into the void?

We're adding the Glittering Caves, you're more than welcome to record the map, and if you play on our server, lotr.empirewar.org, on the helmsdeep map, you're able to blow up the walls :)

Dudes, I loved this map, so I made edits to a version and made two minigame maps. One map has 3 playable gamemodes (altered Battledome, Infiltrator, and just PVP), while the other is a vanilla version of the game Ghostcraft. Was wondering if I could release those maps for download. You guys would get credited, of course. Btw attached is a recent 3-partgame of Infiltratorme and my friends played on your map (you're channel and this page are linked in the vid description).

It doesn't really.
The highest point of the map is still 100 blocks below minecraft limit.
In the movie if you observe carefully then you will see that helms deep is actually more then several times smaller then the mountain

We're currently working on some large scaled projects already. Isengard, Moria, Osgiliath, etc. However Erebor is definately a must.
well thats awesome, can't wait :D
Awesome! :D Now try make the Mines of Moria or the Barrow Downs (I think that was the Crypt place with all the ghosts right?)
  • EmpireWar

It was.
We've got loads of projects going on, including a full command-block powered pvp map, Isengard, Moria, a new Minas Tirith & much more. We wont start on any other projects anytime soon for this reason, but you'll hear more of us soon =)
I'm glad to see someone making AWESOME, really detailed LordOfTheRings stuff, a lot of times when you search stuff quite a lot are usually really basic and not well done so I'm happy to so ones with a lot of effort, now if only you made StarWars stuff too you'd be one of my fav Project makers xD
