Let me start by saying that I don’t play Minecraft myself. I do have to administer it on my wife’s phone and daughter’s iPad! I have seen some great landscapes and models built by them both. But… this is on another level.

Ryan Zull has painstakingly created an amazing model of a large swath of Chicago out of blocks… yes, blocks in a 1:2 scale. It has been four years in the making and he has now just released it for the world to behold. I have read that he used Google Maps to measure and create the Chicago Minecraft model.

Ryan “Koodoo25” (his Reddit username) posted about his Chicago Minecraft model over at Reddit.

I understand that it is still in the works and that he does plan on adding to the Minecraft model.

He has released the model to the public here.
