Remember when an intrepid Minecraft builder announced that he would be recreating World of Warcraft‘s Azeroth? He’s finally finished it and has released a beta build for players to try out.
“The download contains map files for Eastern Kingdom and Kalimdor plus two essential plugins for running a Bukkit server. Bukkit is needed to play the map properly; there are no equivalent plugins for single-player at this time,” creator Rumsey says. “I’ve marked this as a beta release, meaning that additional updates / fixes may come in the future. As much as is possible, I will try to release these changes in the form of a patch that will only modify the blocks that need to be updated. This means you can start working on the map right away, without worrying about your changes being wiped out by a later update.”
The only catch is that you will have to give up 24 GB of space on your hard drive in order to play it as the map consists of 68 million blocks. You can download the map and find more information on it here.
