Level 53 : Grandmaster Explorer
I am trying to recreate the whole underground structure found in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBEy6GStYJ4
I saw the video awhile ago and really wanted something like that in my world so I decided to try and recreate it to the best of my ability. The mines I am making is twice the size of Godcraft's. Theirs is 15x15, and the one I created is 30x30. It has taken some time to recreate it as accurately as possible because there are a lot of minor details that I'm trying to get. If anything is off besides the mines it wont be off by more than 3-4 blocks. I also would like to give some props to Zaralith in his version of the mines found here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/mines-of-moria-56/, he is actually building it all by hand. So be sure to check out his also.

I managed to finish the video, it's nothing special just a fly through of the place with some music, once I have it fully complete I plan on making a nicer video, but the video is mainly so you can see what it looks like before you download. Enjoy. This fly through doesn't include the recently added shops.

Dimensions of the schematic are 486W x 682L x 68H

I recommend you try to find a mountain or very hill play to place the schematic so it looks nicer and you don't have to do a lot of terra-forming.

-Mines Section.
-Lighting and groundwork in the mines.
-Entrance into the mines.
-Bridges in the shop area before.
-Areas for shops to be built in.
-Lookout on Moria.
-Staircase connecting the mine cart level to the lookout level.
-The train station entrance.
-The lookout on the shop area.
-Details on the walkways, and fountains in the shop area.
-Minor details and making everything looks nice for the release.
-All the shops are completed to the best of my ability minus one that I don't have enough information on to finish it.

Still to Complete:
-The few new sections in Godcraft added.

Texture pack is http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/72914-32x-14-gerudoku-31-mar-2011-outdated-see-pg100/, which is no longer updated :/

Additional Notes

You should check out Godcraft they have some pretty insane things on their server.

Update #25 : 03/29/2012 4:13:53 pm3/29/12

Update #22 : 11/27/2011 3:15:31 am11/27/11

Be sure to watch my Godcraft Moria from the actual sever as there might be something special coming from that.

Update #21 : 11/05/2011 9:34:15 am11/05/11

Thanks, for the support in the contest! I didn't win :/ but there were some other good submissions besides the guy whole stole Castle Levidius and used that as an entry. There might be more to come from the server sometime soon, we will see.

Update #20 : 10/20/2011 5:14:38 pm10/20/11

If everyone could do me a huge favor and support me in this it would be amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPnv9wZB2BA. Also check out a video of Godcraft's Moria, as of august 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLB_7M8i7F0

Update #19 : 08/28/2011 9:47:10 pm8/28/11

So I posted the actual servers Moria! It is what it looks like in its current state so check it out!

Update #18 : 06/29/2011 4:16:25 pm6/29/11

The Schematic is finished, I am uploading everything and I will have a link to a download of the old schematic and world save without the shops if you would like that. Enjoy :)

Update #17 : 06/28/2011 9:49:08 pm6/28/11

So I have pretty much finished every shop that is in Godcraft's Moria currently, I've had a lot of time since the Godcraft server has been down lately :/ But I will hopefully be posting a schematic within the next few days of the mines with the stores complete. Sorry that it has taken so long to get it finished.

Update #16 : 06/28/2011 11:07:29 am6/28/11

I finished the hardest room so far and I only uploaded 1 picture due to the fact it would take 20 to show the whole place, so I will let you explore it when I upload a schematic.

Update #15 : 06/28/2011 12:46:09 am6/28/11

The hardest room is done being built, now all I need to do is go back and place the torches and last things then I will upload pictures of it, hopefully tomorrow!

Update #14 : 06/18/2011 4:46:45 pm6/18/11

Just uploaded some pictures after a long time, I have another room complete I just need to light it so I didn't take pictures because it would have been too dark but they will come soon.

Update #13 : 06/06/2011 6:53:40 pm6/06/11

I have finished a room and I'm currently working on the two hardest rooms, I will post pictures later tonight if not tomorrow.

Update #12 : 06/06/2011 1:26:48 am6/06/11

I have all the details I could possibly need for the shops to be built accurately it should take around a week to two weeks to do at max, and I will begin work on them soon.

Update #11 : 06/05/2011 1:18:55 am6/05/11

Updated the world save for those that had problems with it

Update #10 : 06/04/2011 4:42:26 pm6/04/11

Video has been added, and I have begun to work on the rooms, like I have said before I don't know how long this will take but I will try my best to get them done.

Update #9 : 06/04/2011 2:38:19 pm6/04/11

World save has been added, now time to work on a video for the project

Update #8 : 06/04/2011 3:22:30 am6/04/11

I will be trying to get a video of the project made over the next few days. It will include a fly/walk through of all the area's that are currently completed and what I plan on completing in the future.

Update #7 : 06/04/2011 1:02:11 am6/04/11

I will begin work on the shops sometime this coming week, I hope to have them done by next weekend

Update #6 : 06/03/2011 10:20:02 pm6/03/11

I have just finished the store-less version of the mines, I want to go back and make sure everything is how I want it before I release a schematic of it, so you can expect it within the next 2-3 hours.

Update #5 : 06/03/2011 7:23:44 pm6/03/11

Almost done, I just need to finish up the gravel and tree area

Update #4 : 06/03/2011 3:44:44 pm6/03/11

nice. but i dont see how people arent accusing you of "STEALING" left and right. i did a similar build of an existing castle, asked the original designer's permission, gave credit, posted their link in my description and even NAMED the damn thing after him and some people were STILL being mean about it. lol. build on!
I think the main reason is there are some inaccuracies in it so it isn't considered an exact replica. It also was done before I got access to the server so I couldn't have just gone around and got loads of pictures and videos of it. One last note is I actually am on the server now, and the people that built it honestly don't have a problem with it. I will give you one little spoiler though, there will be more to come from the server eventually, it may not be from me but more will come.

Dude, you have no idea how sick this is! I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to use it to house a class on my server; don't worry, I will make sure that you are known as the maker of the amazing housing that my players will receive. I hope you don't mind, if you do I will not use your beautiful creation.
Feel free to, thanks for the compliment though. I would like to specifically give props to Godcraft for the idea, I just recreated it to the best of my ability. But enjoy :)
do the shops pls
They're all done to the extent that they are in the current Moria on Godcraft, minus one room that they haven't done anything with.
very good from wat ive seen of vids. :) but i have a question. for some reason i download the world save and implement it correctly and then when i go to play it it loads up, frezzes when it gets to "simulating world for a bit" then a few seconds later the game crashes. please help!
Okay so I looked into it and the one solution I found is to delete your whole .minecraft file under %appdata% and re-install minecraft. You might be able to back up your world saves before doing so though.
Thanks worked! thanks so much!
Hmm, I will look into it and try to find a response. I could be the face that it is updated to 1.6.6 only. I will try to fix this for you as soon as possible.
