Despite the years, Minecraft is still one of the most popular games in the world both in number of players and in hours of content consumed on the main video and live platforms. This is not only due to the tireless work of support and contents that Mojang continues to maintain or the legion of modders inventing new settings and ways of playing, an important part of their success came from the number of artists who manage to make totally incredible constructions. Like this player who is building the entire Star Wars galaxy.
Surely, many players have tried to start their Minecraft artistic career recreating Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing or one of Star Wars’ Tie fighters, simple things. Some have even dared to make their own Death Star, why not? All of this remains a trifle compared to the project that this player has in hand: recreate the entire Star Wars galaxy. For now works on two planets: Tatooine and Coruscant, Anakin Skywalker’s home desert planet and the great space city.
Through this thread of Reddit you can see the scale of the designs, such as the buildings on Coruscant or the canyons on Tatooine, while in this video uploaded to Youtube he makes a tour through various stages of the project and its construction.
Of course, the creativity and dedication of Minecraft artists sometimes exceeds all expectations and they seek to improve themselves more and more. It has not been a few hours invested to recreate Tatooine and Cruscant with that scale and level of detail. Seeing the Coruscant model, with all those buildings and different heights, is really impressive. What could be the next planet, Naboo? We will have to be attentive to see how the project progresses.
