Thanks for the support! 3000+ Views and 30+ Diamonds! It really keeps me doing this when I see such support :D

About

This project is meant to show what it might have looked like at the Giza Plateau back when it was new.
I intend to release this map once it gets done, I want people to explore this and find hidden secrets while at the same time being as historically accurate as possible. I hope you like this as much as I do!

If you liked this project why not subscribe or share it with your friends?

To-do

  • Camp/Village of the workers
  • Redo Pyramid causeway's
  • Antechambers & internal tunnels in the pyramids
  • Mastabas in the area and surroundings
  • Khufu Valley temple
  • Harbour
  • Quarry's/worksite

I intend to make a highres timelapse of the actual construction. However that will be made after the project is done since i'm not gonna do a minecraft timelapse in that regard, more like an actual construction process to show how it might have been built, heavily inspired by Jean Pierre Houdin's theory - which has not yet been proven but hey, its interesting anyways!

I would also like to distribute this map thru the MinecraftEDU programme but I have no clue where to start - so if anyone would like to help out let me now.

Please incorporate the many mysteries within the great pyramid and under the right paw of the sphinx! This is amazing work, the terrain and the complex is spot on. If you need it, I'll be happy to help out for the mere fun of it. If it's not too much to ask, I'd love a copy of this to get my nerd on! ^^
Are you still active with this? its outstanding!

Thanks :) Its actually a one man mission hehe thats why development is so slow currently.
When might there be a download?
This is so nice.  I especially like how you've shown how Houdin's theory might've looked in your fourth image. Would be so nice to see this completed.  just curious, what is the hole on the north face of khufus pyramid?

Thanks bro, I havent been working on it for a while. Lots of crap in between. Thats was PRIOR to completion of Khufus pyramid, you know all the tunnels/chambers are there aswell. Thats just something that happened due to the way I constructed it. Its not there anymore :)
Wow! Amazing job!

Its looking quite good, I like it. Agree on Kangaro0 tho, try to make the river more natural :3
  • goopen

  • July 25, 2014, 2:51 am
Yeah I agree on that aswell. However what you see there is not the river of the nile - its canals - from what I understand they built canals from the nile to the giza plateau since they needed to offload cargo, like limestone and such :D Ill make something cool tho!
Looking better! Btw I would make the river look more natural :)

Dont worry friend, I am going to revamp the entire nile system. You see the problem is that there is not much clues about what it might have looked like, the most logical thing would be that the nile is further away and that they built canals thus the "unnatrual" look off it. But ill make something cool dont worry :D thanks for the input!
Alright, cant wait!

love the texture pack, however it may look like you just got the image of google images, maybe use a less realistic image for the front cover
  • goopen

  • December 3, 2012, 6:46 am
You are right. Ill change that. It is heavily rendered and filtered in GIMP. Its the original texture pack aswell.
