If you can’t physically go outside right now, why not help complete the first 1-1 scale model of the earth in Minecraft? YouTuber PippenFTS has built a to-scale model of the earth using the Terra 1-to-1 and Cubic Chunks mods, and now he wants your assitance.

Large landmarks including Mount Everest, the Grand Canyon, and Half Dome from Yosemite National Park have already been rendered, and now PippenFTS is looking for collaborators to add in more key sites from around the world.

Currently, structures including the pyramids in Egypt look relatively formless. To fix this, PippenFTS has started a collective project called “Build The Earth” that lets other Minecraft players enhance the model with man-made structures. To contribute you can join the Discord community. Watch the video below to learn more about the project.
