Buildings and other structures
- Someone is working on recreating the land from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Link here.
- Someone made Earth.
- Take a very long straight minecart track, high res textures, music, and time-compressed into a 3-minute music video? Better Than It Sounds
- Some Eurogamer readers recreated York Minster Cathedral, the largest medieval cathedral in the UK. To scale.
- A bunch of fans got together and recreated the Kanto Region. Yes, really.
- Super Mario Bros Level 1-1 done as a pixel art floor!
- Someone constructed the whole framework for the Enterprise. It is 1:1 Scale.
- A BioWare dev proposes to his girlfriend, also a BioWare dev, on Minecraft. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, with bonus points for it being on Valentine's Day.
- As if the words "underwater city" weren't cool enough, this thing shows up...
- Video is blocked in USA.
- This huge spaceship It made by one guy.
- Later, he overtopped by making a much bigger ship.
- Work on Gunnerkrigg Court in Minecraft is currently underway.
- Penn Station, right down to the train terminals.
- For the Finnish folk, Bonefoot Re-created the Moominvalley.
- Ghibli World by OZ Workshop. Complete full-scale reproductions of places from the Studio Ghibli movies, including Laputa Castle In The Sky, Howls Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Porco Rosso and more, all set to Ghibli's beautiful soundtracks. This troper has absolutely no shame in saying that this build is a work of art.
- To top the very first: we now have Middle Earth.
- The sheer scale of the server's replication of Middle Earth is incredible. Just to give one an appreciation for how much stuff they did, the field outside of Bree has over twenty thousand individual wheat plants. When the tour guides on the video say that all the recreations of the Shire and the other villages in Eriador are "nothing" compared to Rivendell or Moria, they are not kidding.
- In addition, more than half of the entire server's construction was handmade, without any tool assists.
- One of the halls in Moria is so big that the far end literally sits outside the rendering distance for the game engine.
- Middle Earth in general is so big that they are actually asking Notch for more room to build stuff in because they are running out
- In the latest update, Jeb doubled the allowable build height from 128 to 256. Let's hope this is enough...
- Four people made the solar system.
- Somebody made a giant statue of the original Megatron. Yeeesss...
- Someone is apparently remaking Azeroth.
- On a different note, someone different is working on remaking Thunder Bluff in Minecraft. That video that is linked? That's only 50% done!
- Also shown above, Someone built a 16 bit computer in Minecraft, which will be able to run programs. We just have to wait for when people start playing Minecraft in Minecraft. Considering it's already being worked on...
- The starting melody to Still Alive using note blocks.
- Someone made a Paint program using an in-game computer.
- It's possible to play Pong in Minecraft.
- A 96-pixel tv.
- The TV itself is awesome enough, but when you get to see the wiring, you can't help but gape. Seriously, it goes on for so long it's not even all rendered while you watch the TV! Think of how long it took to build that!
- It had to happen eventually.
- Someone built Hogwarts. The attention to detail is impressive.
- Someone managed to create a self building house that is capable of repairing itself using the piston mod. This one uses 1.7 pistons. This luxury version uses the now-defunct piston block duplication glitch.
- Someone did an Indiana Jones inspired adventure map, with hundreds if not thousands of moving parts and set pieces all with Pistons. The end result deserves a place here.
- Some of the structures and contraptions made for adventure maps are just incredble
- Literally hundreds of mods that add new items, new contraptions, and even entire new worlds!
- Take Discovery Channel's "The World is Awesome" campaign crossed with Minecraft
- An illustrated guide to Minecraft done in the feelie style of old school games. http://kotaku.com/5723821/the-illustrated-guide-to-minecraft
- This (Fanmade) trailer
- Would you kindly.....
- Turning the WMG of the world being that of a zombie apocalypse into a fan trailer for a fake movie? Okay, that's pretty cool. Making that trailer into a live-action trailer with professional grade CG? Okay, now that's pretty awesome.
- Animating the Bad Apple shadow art video using wool and obsidian and recreating all of Gensokyo are by far the two most awesome attempts to combine Touhou with everything.
- TNT. It's just really cool.
- A TNT ball big enough to break through the bedrock. Repeat that; it broke through the bedrock.
- Far Lands Or Bust itself. For those who don't know, kurtjmac is walking to the Far Lands (he's using 1.7.3 for FLOB, though he has used later versions for other things) without mods  or cheats. Since episode 11 he had walked 292202 blocks west before episode 100, counting a 12 hour 20 minute livestream. It also doubles as heartwarming once you consider he's doing it for charity.
- It's not the MOST popular series, but even reaching Cult classic status with something that literally consists of him walking in a straight line is pretty awesome.
- To celebrate a page view milestone of Equestria Daily, somebody created this.
- To fans of The Hunger Games, a bunch of people apparently threw a Hunger Games style tournament.
- There are actually around 20 Hunger Games servers.
- Managing to win three awards at the 2011 Game Developers Choice Awards, including Best Downloadable Game, despite having technically been in alpha for most of its life and being up against the likes of Limbo and Super Meat Boy!
- Blowing up an island.
- A little more meta but a hacker made a way to use the Kinect to translate objects into monuments in Minecraft (ie it used the Kinect to tell Minecraft where to put blocks to recreate the object in front of the Kinect). http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/106836-Kinect-Hack-Turns-Minecraft-Players-Into-Giant-Monuments Then he adds in the ability to move the moments in real time. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/107188-Kinect-Hacker-Gives-Juggling-Skills-to-Minecraft-Monuments And this is only part two of a three part project.
- A dream within a dream within a dream.
- How connected the creators are to the fanbase, adding in player's suggestions and mods to improve gameplay.
- The fact that Minecraft knocked a certain popular FPS off the top of X-box Live charts is something for fans to be proud of.
- The fact that villagers can repopulate. Night after night, they're attacked by zombies, but still won't give up the village.
