* Someone is working on recreating Hyrule from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. [[{{Stealthpun}} Link]] [[http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/843010-recreating-zelda-ocarina-of-time/ here.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWPk5zlKAEM Someone made Earth]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asImTDkPWKA Take a very long straight minecart track, high res textures, music, and time-compressed into a 3-minute music video?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPDZPUk1uwI And that might be even longer track.]]
* Some Eurogamer readers recreated [[http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/eg-readers-build-new-york-minster York Minster Cathedral]], the largest medieval cathedral in the UK. To scale.
* A bunch of fans got together and recreated the [[{{Pokemon}} Kanto Region]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZG_huoo7CM Yes, really.]]
** And now they've done the same to the [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Hoenn]] Region. [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Johto]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Sinnoh]] are currently in the works.
** For anyone interested in visiting, it can be found [[http://tinyurl.com/PokeCraft here.]]
** And now [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EufPyaiGhG4 we've got Unova too.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXTXV-wvZKQ Super Mario Bros Level 1-1 done as a pixel art floor!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn2-d5a3r94 Someone constructed the whole framework for the Enterprise.]] It is 1:1 Scale.
** As a prelude to constructing the entire ship to match the tech specs. It is truly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXUkdrcey-w epic.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-MfrT0wvMg A BioWare dev proposes to his girlfriend, also a BioWare dev, on Minecraft.]] Doubles as a {{Heartwarming Moment|s}}, with bonus points for it being on Valentine's Day.
* As if the words "underwater city" weren't cool enough, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c83y8ubU0M this thing shows up...]]
** Original video is blocked in USA. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2qUkQvMo-o Alternate link here.]]
** Another work by the same guy, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JABnWiPyV7o&feature=relmfu here.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mDyjMNdFH4 This huge spaceship]] It was made by one guy.
** Later, he overtopped by making a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKRLlNdt00Y much bigger ship]].
* Work on Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt in Minecraft is currently [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0j7p4u33No underway.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxPsrOmm4mQ Penn Station]], right down to the train terminals.
* For the Finnish folk, Bonefoot [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74gvbZqUDuo Re-created the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edAjk6L4BZM&feature=related Moominvalley]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zTtwXQ5PJM Ghibli World]] by OZ Workshop. Complete full-scale reproductions of places from the Studio Ghibli movies, including Laputa Castle In The Sky, Howls Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Porco Rosso and more, all set to Ghibli's beautiful soundtracks.
* To top the very first: we now have [[http://www.joystiq.com/2011/07/23/mind-blowing-middle-earth-manufactured-in-minecraft/ Middle Earth]].
** The sheer ''scale'' of the server's replication of Middle Earth is incredible. Just to give one an appreciation for how much stuff they did, the field outside of Bree has over ''twenty thousand individual wheat plants.'' When the tour guides on the video say that all the recreations of the Shire and the other villages in Eriador are nothing compared to Rivendell or Moria, they are ''not'' kidding.
** [[OMFGcata Jesse Cox]]: "You guys are insane, you know that?"
** In addition, [[DoingItForTheArt more than half of the entire server's construction was handmade, without any tool assists.]]
** One of the halls in Moria is so big that the far end literally sits outside the rendering distance for the game engine.
** Middle Earth in general is so big that they are actually [[SerialEscalation asking Notch for more room to build stuff in because]] ''they are running out''.
*** Jeb ''doubling'' the allowable build height from 128 to '''''256'''''. Let's hope this is enough...

* [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115765-Entire-World-of-Warcraft-Gets-Recreated-in-Minecraft Someone is apparently remaking Azeroth.]]
** On a different note, someone different is working on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VZZ7SOIxyo remaking Thunder Bluff in Minecraft.]] That video that is linked? That's only ''50% done!''

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3Sy9_A04_I A full scale re-creation of the entire continent of Westros from the A Song of Ice and Fire books]]
* Someone built [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qmVC5qO014 Hogwarts.]] The attention to detail is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq6KNKdiTwg impressive.]]
* Two Spanish [=LPers=] built (by hand) a epic monument which consisted of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8uy3us0SyA&t=9m09s a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umOrAdF3bPk massive]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0D2PdpIHBfQ antenna]] made of ''villagers'' and a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPFheba9hYI colossal-sized clay statue of a villager]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb3rop5hcZ4 wearing headphones and a microphone]]'', surrounded by quartz pillars and a lava pool. Yes, it's as crazy and insane as it sounds. They're now planning to build [[UpToEleven a massive rollercoaster]] that connects the monument with a nearby castle.
* [[http://www.dr.dk/nyheder/viden/tech/2014/04/24/082734.htm Denmark]](Webpage in Danish) has been OFFICALLY created in a 1:1 scale. Yes.
* We now have the entire [[http://vujon.tumblr.com/post/79773398443/shiganshina-district-right-before-mankind-recieved Shiganshina district]] plus the head and hand of the [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Colossal Titan.]]

* Also shown above, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGkkyKZVzug Someone built a 16 bit computer in Minecraft, which will be able to run programs]]. We just have to wait for when people start playing Minecraft in Minecraft. [[http://minecraftforums.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=45107 Considering it's already being worked on...]]
** [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/109144-Man-Uses-Kinect-to-Play-Minecraft-in-Minecraft we need to go deeper.]]

It does Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Sine, Cosine, Tangent, Log, Square, Square Root, Linear and Quadratic equation plotting, and even equation solving!
*** Topping all this: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaWo68CWWGM The Dual Core CPU.]]

* [[Music/DragonForce It]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNmzripusSc&feature=related had to]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=634wERZtu9k&feature=watch_response happen eventually.]]
* Someone made a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS026GwXQ4o Paint]] program using an in-game computer.
* It's possible to play [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQwpl7SlzvI Pong]] in Minecraft.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbz9KoF_xX0 A 96-pixel tv.]]
** The TV itself is awesome enough, but when you get to see the wiring, you can't help but gape. Seriously, it goes on for so long it's not even all rendered while you watch the TV! Think of how long it took to build that!

[[folder: Other Creations ]]

* Someone managed to create a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p2Gga6dIWY&NR=1 self building house]] that is capable of ''repairing itself'' using the piston mod. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdGXQJJUhtY This one uses 1.7 pistons.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4ajRpehkXk This luxury version uses the now-defunct piston block duplication glitch.]]
* Someone did an [[http://vimeo.com/27854932 Indiana Jones inspired adventure map]], with hundreds if not thousands of moving parts and set pieces all with Pistons.
* Some of the structures and contraptions made for adventure maps are just incredible.
* Literally hundreds of mods that add new items, new contraptions, and even entire new worlds!
* A Spanish youtuber (ElRichMC) has developed a very, very expensive Ender Crystal generator, requiring thousands and thousands of redstone blocks, pistons and other blocks. He uses pistons to push endstone into unloaded chunks, which tricks the game into generating new obsidian pillars (with Ender Crystals on top) upon loading those chunks. He then uses the large dark oak tree growth glitch (it can grow downwards from where it is planted, destroying any block under it, including bedrock) to allow him to move the Ender Crystal without it exploding. He finally transports it into the Overworld via the end portal, and at the end he has an Ender Crystal in the Overworld illuminated by pillars of light from beacons below. You can skip to the moment where he checks the result [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx1AYgcl1eY&t=49m14s here]].

* [[http://youtu.be/v5fS4RF3ht0 This (Fanmade) trailer]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpa0HtTTcCE&feature=relmfu This]] fanmade trailer for the End, by the same guy who made the Minecraft trailer above.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNxcxnKYPOc Would you kindly...]]
* Turning the WMG of the world being that of a zombie apocalypse into a fan trailer for a fake movie? Okay, that's pretty cool. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uyxVmdaJ-w&feature=player_embedded Making that trailer into a live-action trailer with professional grade CG? Okay, now that's pretty awesome.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-0lwkw8kwE Animating the Bad Apple shadow art video using wool and obsidian]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqwBpMTn_l0 recreating all of Gensokyo]] are by far the two most awesome attempts to combine ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' with everything.
%% Don't replace the Bad Apple link with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DL4DJoJEtNU, please; that, even though it looks valid, is a well-fabricated fake.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2rDbRUDkds TNT]]. It's just really cool.
** And now, by the same person, we have "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPJUBQd-PNM Revenge]]", which, if you think the fans are right, is the best thing ever.
*** Then [=CaptainSparklez=] and [=TryHardNinja=] made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-sH53vXP2A "Fallen Kingdom"]].
*** A fourth one, "Minecraft Style", was ScrewedByTheLawyers: the record labels who owned the original song (PSY's "Gangnam Style") and the video for it claimed "copyright infringement" on it, and as a result the original was blocked from Website/YouTube (''twice'', and the second one may stick for a while). Yes, as if a shot-for-shot ''parody'' done in a ''completely different artistic style'' and featuring ''completely different lyrics'' constitutes infringement and does any actual harm to the original work. (The original maker has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b84Z3IRg3VA re-upped the video]] to his channel; if that doesn't work, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p55jwAwwzw here's a re-up]] by another user.)
*** There's a new video called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kwwl9jiJ1A4 Take back The Night]]. It's a sequel to Fallen Kingdom, and it lives up to the standard made by the previous videos. That's rather impressive, considering the fact that it's an original song, unlike the previous ones which were parodies. (This is due to the makers fearing that their future videos would be subjected to copyright infringement after what happened to Minecraft Style.)
** Other users have started creating Minecraft parodies. Two that have received a lot of accord are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_XGxzMrq04 "Don't Mine at Night"]] by [=BebopVox=] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvpC-pXBIjo "The Miner"]] by LetsPlay/AntVenom (which has already taken the top spot on at least one "Top Minecraft Songs" list).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/kurtjmac?feature=watch#p/c/88E090CABA34B14B Far Lands Or Bust]] itself. For those who don't know, kurtjmac is walking to the Far Lands (he's using 1.7.3 for FLOB, though he has used later versions for other things) without mods [[note]]He does use texture packs, and a fan has made a FLOB texture pack that he uses now.[[/note]] or cheats. Since he started he has walked over 1048576 blocks west[[note]]Actually south, but as far as he's concerned, it's west.[[/note]] in 256 episodes, counting two marathon livestreams. It also doubles as heartwarming once you consider he's doing it for charity.
** It's not the MOST popular series, but even reaching Cult classic status with something that literally consists of him walking in a straight line is pretty awesome.
* To celebrate a page view milestone of EquestriaDaily, somebody created [[https://www.youtube.com/user/Subwolfers#p/a/u/0/90P2SiBoEF0 this]].
* To fans of ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', a bunch of people apparently threw a Hunger Games style tournament.
** There are actually around 20 Hunger Games servers.

** And now we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iJX21-GJnE the sequel]]. Among the new guys are the Enderdragon (who has an Irish accent), the Blaze, the Iron Golem, and Herobrine, who sings his verse.

[[folder: Uncategorized ]]

* Managing to [[http://gamasutra.com/view/news/33341/GDC_2011_Red_Dead_Redemption_Tops_Game_Developers_Choice_Awards.php win three awards]] at the 2011 Game Developers Choice Awards, including Best Downloadable Game, despite having technically been in alpha for most of its life and being up against the likes of ''{{Limbo}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]''!

* A little more meta but a hacker made a way to use the Kinect to translate objects into monuments in Minecraft (ie it used the Kinect to tell Minecraft where to put blocks to recreate the object in front of the Kinect). http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/106836-Kinect-Hack-Turns-Minecraft-Players-Into-Giant-Monuments Then he adds in the ability to move the moments in real time. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/107188-Kinect-Hacker-Gives-Juggling-Skills-to-Minecraft-Monuments And this is only part two of a three part project.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-b7kmIsJ5qY A dream within a dream within a dream.]]
* How connected the creators are to the fanbase, adding in player's suggestions and mods to improve gameplay.
* The fact that [[http://kotaku.com/5913657/minecraft-breaks-call-of-dutys-grip-atop-xbox-lives-chart Minecraft knocked]] [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty a certain popular FPS]] off the top of Xbox Live charts is something for fans to be proud of.
* The fact that villagers can repopulate. Night after night, they're attacked by zombies, but still won't give up the village.
* Youtube user Lorgon111 did an entire series from spawn to killing the enderdragon without using the 3x3 crafting grid.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l9PuQl3kQ0 Gods Don't Bleed.]]. A 3D animation that depicts a battle between Herobrine and a small army of mobs, culminating in an Enderman nearly killing him on its own. The reason for the title? [[spoiler: The ending shows Herobrine bleeding from his right hand.]] Not only is the fight itself epic, but the fact that those mobs had the guts to stand up to him in the first place is pretty darn great.
** Herobrine himself gets an impressive villainous MOA by showing the mobs just ''[[OneManArmy why]]'' the fandom considers him to be so [[TheDreaded scary]]. Only the Enderman gives him any trouble and even then, it doesn't take long for him to regain the upper hand.
* As mentioned in the above folder, a popular Minecraft gamestyle is "Survival Games", based on ''Literature/TheHungerGames''. Many maps and servers have it set up so that after a certain time limit, all remaining players are transported to an "arena deathmatch", a high-walled stone floor with lava underneath and a gap around the floor. To keep the players in, there are stone bars and bleachers above the wall, so it's practically impossible for anyone to escape. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rcf7Rbh91vI&t=33m06s Or not.]] Two players figured out that you could place water using a bucket (you're not allowed to place most blocks on most servers). In the arena, they first used this to drop down to the lava, creating a safe obsidian platform and killing one of the two other players. They then used the bucket to rise all the way up the outside wall, and hit each other with fishing rods to make it over the stone bars. After climbing up the stone bleachers, one used a fishing rod to knock the other onto the final wall, and the player jumped off, killing himself in the map but "escaping" from the arena. (The other went back and killed the remaining player, earning the in-game win; however, the other players decided the guy who escaped "won.")
* Using texture packs to make various things look cooler. An example would be retexturing [[PantheraAwesome cats]] into [[Franchise/MetalGear Revolver Ocelots]].
* How about deflecting a Ghast Fireball to deflect another Ghast Fireball fired from the same Ghast and killing it? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlDS2JdyJrI Proof here.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfS7RHnugTo&t=7m10s The Luckiest Minecraft Player Ever]], who mines a block directly underneath him in the Nether, falls directly into lava, must swim to a very far shore, is attacked by two Ghasts, and falls into a 2 by 2 lava hole. Even with protection from fire, he ''barely'' makes it out alive.
* This post by deviantArt user Ask-King-Boo is just amazing.
** "This almost never happens to me in Minecraft. I was playing on an Aether 2 server with a friend, named cutedinos86. Our base got raided and I was killed. I kept going back and stalling the guys who invaded the base. Just then, one of them killed one of their number by sheer accident, of which there were three. I grabbed the loot, equipped everything, and proceeded to [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] the whole lot. They were terrified at how badly it was suddenly going; a guy with better EVERYTHING than me didn't even try to fight. We proceeded to drain them of all their resources by killing them all multiple times when they tried to come back for more xD"
* The upcoming 1.7 update is looking to be one of the most awesome updates since the Adventure Update. In addition to [[spoiler:new biomes and fishing mechanic overhauls]], powerful new commands are already making cool things possible in game (without having to exit the game to use a map editor) even with just the preview snapshots. Things such as being able to simply use a command block to detect, place, or remove blocks will likely revolutionize what is possible in maps.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8V-pm2IqkY EXPLOSIONS!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzCoo7l1IpM A 200.000 TNT explosion]]. Yeah.
