Crafting Azeroth:
Someone is actually doing it…

Minecraft’s blocky world has transcended many a universe. Just about everything is being recreated in voxel-ian splendor from the USS Enterprise in Star Trek to Minis Tirith from Lord of the Rings.

And now the lands of World of Warcraft have been assimilated. Crafting Azeroth is a mind-bogglingly ambitious mod with plans to convert all of Azeroth into Minecraft. So far Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms have been converted over and Rumsey, the guy behind it all, has plans to include Outland, Northrend, Tol Barad and the Lost Isles.

Before you think he’s completely insane, he’s using an automated process via custom software he’s developed so this isn’t being done one block at a time. It’s still quite an achievement none the less.

The mod can be downloaded here but look out, its a whopper, weighing in at 2.1GBs and uncompressing to a hard-drive-trembling 24GBs.

Also here’s an impressive Imgur image gallery if you don’t have a spare 24GBs.
