Someone is Building Night City in Minecraft

 Building massive structures and cities is a common pastime in the massive voxel-based sandbox game Minecraft. A team of two is ringing in the New Year with a mega project that involves recreating Night City as it appears in Cyberpunk 2077, making Minecraft Night City.

Collectively known as CVP Official (which stands for Caleb and Valmik Productions,) the two Minecraft builders started their project on January 1st this year. The team has worked on projects such as a festive texture pack for making Christmas-themed maps and a modern house, but this project will likely be their biggest undertaking yet. The team of Pandatiger615 and MinecraftEV3 are planning to have ten updates to the map total, with each update representing an additional 10% of the city done. The most recent version, which was posted just yesterday, is reportedly about 35% complete.

Checking out the city in-game, it certainly manages to capture that massive scale the original Night City has. A few dozen skyscrapers tower above a section of smaller buildings along the water, with a highway riding above the nearby ocean. Behind the skyscrapers is a mix of snow blocks, concrete powder, and other whiteish blocks that are meant to represent the Badlands surrounding the city proper. There's obviously a good amount of work that still needs to be done in order to fully recreate Night City, but what's out there so far manages to do a pretty good job.

 
 

You can find the download for the current rendition of Night City here on Planet Minecraft. If you've never downloaded and installed a Minecraft map before, you can find a guide on how to do that here. It's worth a read if you've never messed with custom worlds or screenshots, as finding the right folders can be tricky if you don't know what you're doing.
