Winter is near. Unfortunately, the next season of “Game of Thrones” did not come to the end of March, but for those who can not wait for the next visit in Vasteras, some brave masons prepared a special surprise. In the style of Minecraft .

Will Blue (Will Blew) Grenberri and Jacob (Jacob Granberry) created WesterosCraft, a site dedicated to the reconstruction of the universe George RR Martin brick by brick. Both are fans of the novel and both had seen other players in Minecraft, which has recreated a version of Hogwarts and Middle Earth one-to-one. The duo picked up an armada of brave volunteer builders and recreated the kingdom who would be proud of Robb Stark.


Minecraft nature with its low resolution of naturalism is not much different from the models offered by “Game of Thrones.” But what is really impressive – it is what can be attractive models with low quality. Blue and Grenberri created these images in partnership with talented, but concealed 3D-artist under the name Maruku.


The duo is very proud of the technical additions to the game. To accurately convey Vasteras, designers need to take into account the snowy near Winterfell Dornisha and heat, but that gaming simulation capabilities in weather can ruin their efforts.

“We are proud parts WesterosCraft», – says Blue. – “If you look at the videos and images, all the way from town to town cleared of snow. This is because we have a special plug-in that we are developed and written. It prevents the loss of snow on the types of blocks that we use to build roads. The same we use for snow formed a pile on the hills and so on. Details – the very important part for us, and we are doing our best to recreate the atmosphere of great stories. ”

Драконий Камень

Dragon Stone Castle was the home of a woman who is known to us as Khaleesi, but he emphasizes the universality Minecraft as CAD-program. If it can display bends dragon bodies, then everything else will be.

“Dragon Stone, without a doubt, was the most complex object”, – says Grenberri. – “Most of the castles of Westeros are rooted in realism, but that Dragon Stone – a flight of fancy, with turrets and dragon gargoyles. This is a complex and very meticulous work, and each building remodel at least once. In addition to the Stone Dragon, however, all of our building is a perfect fit the format of Minecraft. Who is not trying to build a castle in the game? ‘.

Игра престолов

Building and the project as a whole can not be created by one person or a small team. Blue and enlisted the support of virtual Grenberri general contractors planerv and thousands of workers who have contributed to the development of the universe Martin in Minecraft.

“Every town, village, castle, city, and notable places of the book have been divided into two parts: group building and small buildings,” – says Grenberri. – “Party in advance of the building plan and organize a team of moderators on the server. The date and time are announced in advance for people who want to participate in the project, they had a common plan for the forum and the outlines of their future work in the game. Small buildings we allow to build on their own or in small teams, provided that the architects will adhere to a set of clear rules and guidelines. All are strict enough, but the only way we can be sure that will give people a better quality. ”


Roman George RR Martin is known for often checks the attention of readers, but the team WesterosCraft more proud demonstration of the technical capabilities of its proposal.

“It should be noted that we are very proud to be able to support such a large map with a lot of heavy buildings,” – says Blue. – “Most people think of Minecraft, and say something like, Oh, this is an infinite world, so it is quite simple to arrange. However, we are very long fought for strength and stability, trying to find the resources to support our ambitious project. Our package of textures supported by a special community, and everyone can contribute, if explain why or why. This we have an approval process. ”

King’s Landing is the latest triumph for a pair of developers. After creating the first draft they were dissatisfied with the lack of details, and Martin would remain dissatisfied with this incarnation of his mnogotysyachestranichnogo creation. The latest version of the capital of Westeros was recreated 2000 unique and fully furnished buildings. Hundreds of hours of work for four months. Blue notes:

“At the moment I’m not sure I can name the exact number of units, but that the data card player now holds 58 GB, and the forum says 3367 people.”

Железный трон

Even the Iron Throne is in the form of a model, however swords is difficult to convey because of the nature of the material block. Although Minecraft is great for building castles, not all fantasy campaign setting is embodied well.

“I do not know who, but someone on a server gave a brilliant idea to turn one of the rails in the rope” – says Blue. – “This has allowed us to make the ship’s rigging and rope, which will connect the cart, for example, and many other things too. Our ships look very interesting and realistic. ”

Grenberri warns: “Use our texture pack, when you walk on the server, a lot of things will be meaningless without it.”


While fans will have to wait for months until the next episode, and years before the saga finally completed, Blue and Grenberri daily moving forward.

“We are working on your own plugin NPC, which will allow our players to have fun and interact with the world in a typical MMORPG style” – says Blue. – “This system will include original historical line, unique things, classes, and even the character creation system.”
