Fan Builds The Entire Star Wars Galaxy In Minecraft
The wonderful world of Minecraft has given players the chance to let their imaginations run wild. Since Mojang Studios' release of Minecraft way back in November 2011, players have been given the chance to show off their artistic flair to build their very own intricate and expansive realms.
Now, one devoted player has announced their plans to build every planet from the Star Wars franchise. From what they've shared so far, it looks like the results are going to be more mind-blowing than an exploding Death Star.
What Does The Star Wars Minecraft World Look Like?
The player, known as VC-MC on their YouTube channel, first shared a peek of their new world in a trailer posted on September 9, 2021. In the clip, Star Wars fans can see some of their favourite locations as the planets of Tatooine and Coruscant come to life in block-form. This includes, Jabba's palace, Mos Espa and, The Senate District. VC-MC, also, uploaded a video detailing how they built the first two locations in their single-player open-world adventure map.
Over on their Reddit page 'Vistachess', the Minecraft player has been detailing their development during the process over the year it has taken them on the project. Along with this, they revealed they've been using both WorldPaint and WorldEdit to build the first two planets of the galaxy far, far away.
Players looking to build their own elaborate world can use these free programs to create Minecraft levels and mods. After this, Vistachess posted a screenshot of the beginnings of what looked very familiar to The Theed Royal Palace in Naboo.
When Can I Explore The New Star Wars Minecraft?
As of writing, Minecraft players wanting to download the new maps can download them for free by following the link in the description of VC-MC's trailer.
Of course, this isn't the first time Minecraft has become a world of droids, Wookies and lightsabers. Back in November 2020, Minecraft released its own official Star Wars DLC available for purchase in the Marketplace. According to the Minecraft website, the pack comes complete with "content from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Mandalorian".
Although, we understand that epic space operas aren't everyone's cup of tea. If you still want to have a look at some of the incredible Minecraft creations out there, you can check out one player who spent three years building an American city. Or, if worlds of fantasy and magic are more your thing, you can have a look at one player's recreation of Middle-Earth all in its biome-glory.
