So i'm making this thread to post some of my work using blender to target render minecraft models.
When I do this my computer comes to a crawl (like i'm using 99% of my 8gb ram and 99% of my quad i7) so try to keep your suggestions simple.
Thanks to @Glovr for motivating me to try some of this.
If you guys have ideas/tip for how to stylize these more that would be great. I also am a scrub at shot angles :p
Thanks, Dallen

I dont like that the top is cut off in this one:

This one feels to flat to me:

I'd like to see this awesomeness used in Fin's lovely Mistys. Maybe in a glacier enriched area or Durin's Tower. And I adore the last two shots. I agree the cutoff for the first is a tad off, but the rest are great.

So basically blocks that are in the model but not seen still take up space which means i cannot render things with large mountains and buildings etc.

anyway i did some from bree. Because its flat i can make ones that are fairly large. Your feedback is much appreciated.


oh btw @_Luk that means the larger minas tirith shots wont happen for some time, i am planning on getting a stronger machine in a few months but until then there's not much i can do :/ sry

I honestly forgot that a mountain would indeed be big. As I go to pick up my Darwen Award I'll modify my request to a bit of the newly vegetated Lothlorien. Not the structures, but an example of pure nature goodness.

I wanted to do some of these because westeroscraft had some and people wondered why we didn't. Now we do :D
Im also working on a quick video of minas tirith.
How big is Westeroscraft compared to our map anyways?

MCME 2.0 measures around 30kx27k. It is therefore roughly 810 million blocks squared, or 810 km squared.

WesterosCraft's map measures around 60kx22k. It is therefore around 60% larger than MCME's map, coming in at roughly 1.3 billion blocks squared, or 1300 km squared.

Interestingly enough, given the respective sizes of both fictional continents, both maps are at around a 1:100 scale.

Dallen with your screenshot of minas tirith, tyr scored 4200 upvotes on reddit. I think the world wants to see more. Any chance of doing osgiliath or rauros? As long as it's an overview I'm happy. Really nice stuff man.

Ya that's not happening for a while if at all...
If I get the ok from q to make more I will but until then I will fear the hammer and be a good little dev.

Like if you want to see more, My new comp is much more powerful so its less painful to do (the older ones i had to kill everything including windows explorer to get the power i needed). They are a bit darker and lower resolution but that is b/c I am super new to C4D and need to learn a lot more. Hope you enjoyed
