Indianapolis, Indiana

Eric Morrow

On October 28th, 2015, YouTuber Eric Morrow uploaded a video showcasing his work in progress build of Indianapolis, Indiana in Minecraft (built on the Xbox One Edition of the game). A day after uploading the video to YouTube, Eric Morrow was featured on more than three news related websites based in Indianapolis, showcasing his work because of how closely it resembled the city. As a resident of Indiana and somebody who frequently heads to Indianapolis, I can very wholeheartedly say that his build resembles Indianapolis very well.

In Eric Morrow’s video, he showcases many various landmarks in Indianapolis, including the Lucas Oil Stadium, Monument Circle, Chase Bank Tower and more. In an interview with 24-Hour News 8 Eric Morrow stated that the build took him and his friend eight months to build. The build in relation to the city is on a 3/5 scale. While the video uploaded is a major work in progress, it shows Indianapolis off in a very promising way to those who have never been before.

Midtown Manhattan, New York


Everybody loves New York, right? Even the people that don’t love New York love New York! Planet Minecraft’s BasVerhagen loves New York so much that he has built a very busy and beautiful rendition of the city. BasVerhagen has incorporated many famous buildings, attractions, and much more into his build. Many of these various sights include Time Square, Radio City Music Hall, the Chrysler Building, Tower 49 and about anything else you can think of.

On his post for the Midtown Manhattan project, BasVerhagen has noted that there are currently 17 subway stations, 1 train station, 22 furnished theatres, 6 furnished churches, 2 public parks, 1 furnished library and 5 fully furnished skyscrapers. In the same post, BasVerhagen stated “Why am I building this? Because I really LOVE New York and because I’m inspired by other NY projects on Planet Minecraft!”. Very impressive build, BasVerhagen.

Reddit user Lukep323 created his amazing rendition of Chicago, Illinois in his Minecraft world. After visiting Chicago and falling in love with the city, Lukep323 created a 1:4 scale model of the city. On the /r/Chicago subreddit, he received 1,702 upvotes on his post and was praised by many of the Chicago residents who frequented the subreddit.

After flying around his build on Minecraft, I can definitely agree that his build is amazingly well put together. Lukep323 definitely put his all into making sure this creation was perfect in almost every possible way imaginable.
