Crafting Azeroth recreates World of Warcraft in Minecraft

Just can't get enough World of Warcraft in your day? Then you're in luck, because the Crafting Azeroth project has created a full-scale reproduction of Azeroth, Kalimdor, and Northrend inside Minecraft. The replica spans over 500 (virtual) square kilometers and is constructed of over 100 billion -- yes, billion -- blocks. So what's the secret to creating such a large-scale copy of WoW? It's in a custom piece of software that converts WoW data into a detailed Minecraft replica. And we have to admit, the results are stunning... in a blocky, Minecraft-chic sort of way.

The beta version of the map is available for download now -- but if you're not feeling that bold, you can check out their before and after gallery or explore the map online.
