Run-of-the-mill room porn is one thing, but it takes something like Unreal Engine 4 to elevate it to a whole new level. This apartment might not exist, but I still really really wanna live there. Or at least go there and stare at things. Maybe take an apple. Unreal Engine 4 apples are nice.
And, since the Minecraft version of Times Square is not an absolute clustereff of pedestrians, you get to hang around and enjoy the sights. Yay!
Monument Valley is a pretty great iOS game. It’s so great, in fact, that it inspired a pretty great Minecraft map to go with it, and it does invoke the game’s visuals quite well (that is, until you go first-person, like you tend to do in Minecraft.)
China is known for building ambitious infrastructure projects, and finding humans to populate them after the fact. Sometimes, it doesn’t go according to plan. This is one of those times.
With Fallout 4 due out in November, gamers are once again set to descend upon the nuclear wasteland. Although this time we also get to (briefly) experience life before the apocalypse as well as 200 years afterwards, when the main character emerges from the safety of a Vault into a world changed beyond recognition.
When redditor officialvide showed Minecraft to his dad, his first order of business, after picking up the basics, was to recreate the NYC United Nations Headquarters in-game. Impressive for a WIP, and especially for a first project. Much fancier than a wooden hut, anyway. There are five more renders below.
There’s a long tradition of great architects never building a single thing. They’re called paper architects, because their work is purely 2D. But today, you might look for them working somewhere else: video game design and 3D visualization.
Anyone else getting the urge to climb this, deactivate the scrambler and then descend via zipline? The towering “Dr. Seuss House” in Willow, Alaska, via Colossal, is giving me serious Far Cry flashbacks.
While it might by slightly awkwardly named, Los Angelcraft, based on Los Angeles, is one good-looking Minecraft city.
Manhattan's Sony Tower, slightly modified, in Minecraft form. Built by Tiresh of Planet Minecraft, it's part of a larger, unreleased city map called The Capitol, which should look damn great when it's done, judging by Tiresh's other builds. Hi-res shots, interior shots, and ingame shots below, map download here.
This is what happens when a talented Minecraft player Google image searches "modern house" and rebuilds what he finds in-game. I'd say redditor ELWORRIER did a darn good job. Look below for the full comparison pic, and an imgur album filled with more exterior and interior shots.
The build was created by Microsoft Sweden's event manager, Daniel Steinholtz—and after finishing the map itself, he even took it upon himself to conduct a little virtual tour.
Say what you want about villains, they have spectacular architecture. But they're also a nightmare to create — which is why we don't have more undersea bases or faces carved into mountains in real life. Here are the weirdest design specs of some of the most famous villain lairs.
Lego maniacs have another pilgrimage destination to add to their list: The brand's new "experience center" broke ground in Billund, Denmark yesterday. As you'd expect, the building itself looks like it's constructed from a pile of Lego bricks. And thanks to a new Lego Architecture kit, you can start building your own…
Politics? No, potties! Spotted in eastern China, this public restroom appears modeled after the the United States Capitol.
