    Icon10 ArdaCraft - Building a lore-accurate Middle-Earth

    Hello everyone, for the past year me and about 20 other Minecraft players have been working on a massive project in Minecraft.

    We have been pretty much under the radar up untill a recent imgur post by our project leader, and well i can say that i am really happy with the results of that post!

    So far we've been featured on a whole bunch of websites, including some that have nothing to do with Minecraft or even games at all.

    Here's the origional Imgur post:

    And here's a bunch of websites that have featured us (not all of them tho):


    I hope that you guys enjoy reading through the imgur post, and i would like to know your personal thoughts on it!

    If this post isn't allowed or anything then just tell me and i'll remove it, i just want to show this to you guys in full pride.

    I took look at the pictures in Imgur, it looks really cool. It reminds me a bit of Lego... I could play endlessly with it as a child.

    Favorite part of photos were the aerial shots of all the farmland.

    Yea, since the Shire is basically Tolkien's ideal vision of the old english countryside where he grew up in, we tried to make it as similar as possible to that.

    Thanks alot Finlander, pm me and i'll provide you all the info you want.

    @King We won't join MCME, we came from there and left for several reasons. One of them being that their map is too tiny, at arround a 1:100 scale instead of the 1:1 you said.

    Very cool.

    Here's a pretty dated video, but still shows alot of the Shire in a nice little showcase.
