The Danish Make Denmark in Minecraft; The US Ruins It


Just as the headline says. Apparently the Danish Geodata Agency has spent quite a while replicating the country of Denmark on a 1:1 scale for educational purposes, which has been estimated to be “about 4000 billion bricks and a terabyte of data.” Hearing this, players immediately tried to start blowing shit up to no results, until the minecart with dynamite item was remembered. This resulted in numerous asshats launching exploding minecarts all over the place and mounting giant statues in the name of the U.S. in the remains of the chaos.


Actual in-game screenshot I swear

I don’t know about you guys but I’d be pretty assblasted if someone nuked my terabyte-sized Denmark, but apparently the Danes are on some good shit because they don’t even feel phased by this shit.

“We consider that as a nature of playing Minecraft – elements are broken down and new are being created,” Danish Geodata Agency spokesman Chris Hammeken told The Register. “Therefore we will not reboot the demonstration of Denmark in Minecraft. But occasionally we will rebuild minor areas if buildings are removed and nothing new is being created.”

Thanks for being really forgiving Denmark. Or really drugged out. Either one’s cool.

You can download your own scale Denmark from the Danish Geodata Agency’s site in several sections in case you want to get on some American-style Dane slaying. I think running a server with this map would be cool, but hella taxing on the poor machine that has to load that map.

Anyways, this shit was hilarious. America motherfucker.
