North of 10 years have gone by since Minecraft was first released, however with new updates coming to the game, players refuse to put down the famous sandbox survival game. This week has seen numerous wonderful Minecraft creations, with players' works of workmanship and mechanisms going viral almost day by day.
One of these creations was really a recreation of one of the world's most iconic man-made structures, capturing it as a massive scale-model in Minecraft. The structure in question is one of the tallest and most conspicuous structures on the planet, and is the focal point of the city of Paris. On the off chance that anyone is still guessing, the recreation was of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Reddit user md_yeamin_habib is the maker of the massive scale model, posting it on the Minecraft subreddit so anyone might see for themselves. Their creation is the inverse of the wooden axolotl from Minecraft, instead taking a genuine model and scaling it into the game. They note in the title that the model is a 2:1 scale, however later right their mistake in a remark, saying they implied it was a large portion of the scale of the original, not twofold.
When something from this present reality enters Minecraft, it tends to come out looking strange because of the square based engine of the game. For buildings, this usually isn't an issue as long as they are based on a huge scale; when done accurately, the structures will more often than not look exceptionally realistic from a good ways. Tragically, in the case of this Eiffel Tower model, the issue seems to be that md_yeamin_habib's dimensions are off. Comments rushed to point this out, saying the model looks stunted in the center. When comparing the model to an image of the original, there is an unmistakable structural distinction in the tallness of the two structures.
It is also difficult to determine what md_yeamin_habib assembled the model out of because they used a surface pack. It looks as however the model was fabricated all the way out of stone blocks, yet there may be some hazier blocks in the model as well. Nonetheless, these could simply be shaders making it look as however the blocks are various colors, as seen in one player's Minecraft library.
Regardless of its small flaws, the Eiffel Tower scale model looks incredible, and obviously invested in some opportunity to make. With some revisions, md_yeamin_habib could transform this great scale model into an ideal one. Perhaps now they can even scale the model up so that it is a massive 1:1 scale, showing off a genuine behemoth of a structure deserving of sitting beside their impressive Sphinx structure.
