There's a tendency to go straight for the fantastical when designing Minecraft worlds, to castles and islands in the sky, but just like we see with LEGO and its City sets, the mundane can be just as good.

These images are from a fictional Minecraft city on rikkuness' server, which while not available for download is sitting there so you can jump on and take a look.


It's pretty easy to spot influences from cities like New York and Chicago, but there's enough variety and individuality there to make you think you've stumbled upon the biggest LEGO city you could ever have dreamed of as a kid.
