Building the entire world in Minecraft on a 1:1 scale seems like it should be possible. It’s not, though: Minecraft has limitations, most importantly its 256 block height limitation, which won’t exactly allow the construction of, say, Mount Everest. But with the use of two important mods, one YouTuber has not only avoided that height limitation, but has also automated the process of mapping the world.

In the video above, PippenFTS explains how. Using the mod Cubic Chunks, it’s possible to effectively remove the game’s height limitation. Meanwhile, Terra 1-to-1 does what the name implies: it draws from map data, chiefly Google Earth, in order to closely recreate actual real world landscapes.
