If the download button doesn't show:


Ever wanted to have the full earth as a creative or survival terrain? Want to leave your mark on the world? Getting this map would be a good start for all your world domination ambitions, and who wouldn't want to mine diamonds in his/her backyard? All of this is possible (depending on the version of the map you get)!

The map is about 16200*32400 blocks big, uses the equirectangular map projection and is based off of the ETOPO1 global reliëf map from the NOAA. One can check it out quite easely on the interactive map which was graciously provided by overviewer.org. And to find your backyard, you can use the converter which can convert any GPS to ingame location!

Differences between survival and creative terrain:
  • Download size survival is 3.4GB, creative 1.4GB
  • The creative version features NO ores, the survival version ofcourse has.
  • The creative version features brown mushroom deserts where ocher red deserts would be (australia, america midwest) in the survival version these deserts are just sand.
  • The creative version features custom vegetation to match the real vegetation of the earth, also with undecaying leaves! The survival version features default minecraft vegetation.
  • The survival version has dungeons, but no mineshafts, villages or temples as far as i'm aware.

What will be the first thing you do on this map?

It doesnt want to extract properly
We should preserve the earth, keep it beautiful by saying no to fossil fuels (just imagine someone saying it while the vid's music is playing and pictures of the earth are shown)
how big is this map ?

What happened to the download link for version 1 of this map it was so much better then version 2 for 3 reasons:
1. No annoying villages and other structures in the map.
2. The terrain looked more accurate on version 1 then version 2 and it had underwater topography.
3. Version 1 didn't have annoying bits of stone everywhere.

So please don't let one of your oldest fans down by ignoring this post and if you don't at least answer me i will spam you until you finally listen.

i cant extract
So I try downloading all the files via mediafire but it says i need to upgrade to pro which costs money and I only want a free download xD

Welp. Guess I'm not getting 2.1

Oh yeah I forgot to mention, I tried downloading all the .zip and such files and It gave me an older version.

Yeah.. So... thats a thing..
The earth is flat.
Awesome map! Quick question, how big would a world be that is acually as big as earth?

316,879,833,600 blocks².
Acually, the planet is approximately 3000 miles long, the minecraft world is approximately 30000 miles long!
Correction, the earth is about 24000 miles!
Minecraft is 30000 miles!

I'm trying to follow the instructions of selecting all 3 folders and then clicking "Extract Here." When I do this, it just says that the archive of the .z01 file is corrupt. What do I do?

The easiest way is to open the resource pack folder from Minecraft, then go back one folder, and put the world file (unzipped) into the saves folder
OMG This is an Awesome map!
How did you do it, with worldpainter?

But you cant download it any more?, it says that on your pagen when im trying to download it.....

To those who can't get it to work:
1- Download all three files and move them into a folder by themselves
2- Download WinRar (Freeware, used to open unconventional archive files)
3- Select all three files and right click. Select "extract here"
4- Wait. This will take a while.
5- Import the folder the files extracted into to your saves folder. (Win+R, %appdata%, .minecraft, saves)
Is there a way to rotate the map in Minecraft Overviewer?
Could you please make the oceans deeper than they are right now?

That used to be impossible, but recent discoveries now make this a possibility. So maybe next iteration? :)
Sorry, ik begrijp die laatste zin niet?
"Maybe next iteration"
Als het ooit komt, komt het dan met een nieuwe project of gewoon een update? Hoe download ik deze?

I give this map 3/5 stars.
This is a good map, from space that is, and lots of work went  into this thing, but the problem is the terrain, even in the sararha there is endless mountains that are impossible to naturaly climb in survival without breaking blocks.
For what I wanted to use this for, a modern warfare style factions server with tanks and troop transports, it just wasnt praticle. 
Maybe this can be fixed in a future update?

I have been thinking how this map could be geographically earth-like without exact accuracy. This is a feature that i think a lot of people who don't need an exact recreation will appreciate, however the accuracy will of course drop. So it's a thin line to balance on. What to keep? River networks are important for reference I think, but any other terrain features that are important to maintain?

The request is simple. But it automatically makes you run into a series of problems and judgements you have to make. So it's not as easy to create.

Extracting the zip file even with the other 2 files doesn't work. I guess I'm not doing this now.
