Final Fantasy 7’s City of Midgar recreated in Minecraft

ff7 minecraft midgard - 01

A player with the handle Killerx20 has posted pictures of the city of Midgar from Final Fantasy 7. It wasn’t just this player that created this amazing city, there were many others.

Killerx20 had this to say regarding the city, what’s visible, and if there are any future updates:

This is a project that has taken years to do, with help from many many people. The most notable people are Volagarenthor, Ksun, Anniixo, Flock (who is no longer with us and will be deeply missed) and myself. The team died out a while back when our network shut down but I continued to work on it so I can release it to the public eventually.

This map is 6642 Minecraft chunks, 1290×1290 blocks in length and width and uses the full 0-255 height limit.
As a lot are probably wondering, yes, more then 85% of this build WAS indeed hand placed. The only things that were not are the outer plates, tower, and reactors BUT that doesn’t mean they were completed when imported, they were basically detail-less empty shells and I wanted it that way so everything on/inside them had to be hand placed for optimal detail.

There are are a few things I would still like to do to this map one day, adding more detail and variant to the buildings, slums sewer network system, and other means of transport other then walking in the slums. I tried to get rid of most of the bugged lighting on the map to the best I could, if anybody spots any please let me know.

This map contains all visitable areas from Final Fantasy VII, as well as many areas from Crisis Core and Dirge of Cerberus. Everything you see has an interior and is enter-able. I believe in making things look good as well as have functionality. Making a building look pretty without being able to have an interior is useless to me.

The list of areas on this map are –

Sector 1 Mako Reactor from FFVII

Sector 1 Station from FFVII

Sector 8 Town Square from FFVII and Crisis Core

Shin-Ra Headquarters from FFVII

Deepground variant from Doc

Crisis Core SOLDIER’s floor level 49 and SOLDIER directors office from Crisis Core

All Mako Reactor Interiors

Sector 7 Slums from FFVII

Sector 6 Slums and Wall Market from FFVII

Sector 5 Slums, Church, and Aeriths House from FFVII

This map has a functional railway system that connects all sectors together and features the central column that traverses between the slums and the plates. More updates to this map will be released at various times in the future (depends on how much time I have to work on it)

Being a big fan of FF7, I was truly amazed to see the details of the city. I applaud this player and the others who put so much time and work into this. Now if I only played Minecraft I would get this.
