Minecraft player recreating Earth in 1:1500 scale

Minecraft player lentebriesje is mapping and recreating the continents of Earth in a 1:1500 scale model.

Using a tool called WorldPainter, an interactive graphical map generator for Minecraft, lentebriesje aims to to recreate each continent accurately while "still being playable." Downloadable maps of Europe, North American, South America and Australia are already available.

Updates on the project will be available via lentebriesje's original blog post.
