A Minecraft player developed an intricate maze a thousand blocks wide and a thousand blocks long with a million block area. The creator described how long it took them to complete the remarkable work.
Despite its introduction over a decade ago, Minecraft remains one of the most popular games on all platforms. Minecraft has earned its spot as one of the most popular games of the century by allowing players the freedom to create whatever they can dream. While some Minecraft players use this freedom to build gigantic snow globes or imitate works of art from the real world, this player decided to build the ultimate maze.
Cadestine, a Reddit user, shared a video to the Minecraft subreddit showing an overview of their gigantic project. Cadestine takes nearly a minute to fly across the maze, which has a variety of layouts. The three-block-high labyrinth features nine alternative exits and offers players six classes to choose from. At least one area of the maze confronts the player against hostile creatures. Cadestine explained in the post’s comment area that it took nearly three years of on-and-off work to create the maze, and many users praised them for their perseverance. Cadestine is currently putting the finishing touches on the labyrinth’s redstone components, so the Minecraft maze isn’t complete yet. However, once completed, it appears likely that the user will make their map available for download.
It’s difficult to think how many hours it took Cadestine to conceptualise and build this massive maze on their own, but it’s safe to assume they’re probably excited to be nearing the end of their arduous project. Redstone, a resource that allows users to develop intricate, automated contraptions using methods comparable to a simple computer language, is responsible for much of Minecraft’s creative magic.
Minecraft’s creative power appears to have gained the attention of officials in the United States. The US Department of Education recently awarded a $4 million funding for a new programme that would teach computer science to underserved middle schoolers in New York and California using Minecraft’s Education Edition and its redstone capabilities. The programme is expected to boost academic success and attendance while also encouraging children to use Minecraft’s creative tools.
Innovative and intriguing constructions within the game are common, such as this big mob farm produced recently in Minecraft. This player produced a highly intricate, castle-like design that is nevertheless a fully functional mob farm, displaying the Minecraft community’s artistic skills.
