    SNES Earthbound in Minecraft

    Has it been done before? Yes.

    Do I care? No.

    Onett is 100% finished as far as the exterior is concerned. I have to make several building interiors plus the sanctuary cave.
    Twoson's exterior is 95%-98% finished.
    Threed is about 60%-70% finished
    Dusty Dunes Desert is 75% finished, I need to do the strip below the road
    Fourside is barely started. Only the roads have been placed.

    This is built on a superflat world about 30 blocks high. I can dig down some if need be, and I have plenty of height to make building interiors. Mountains and hills will be 100% hollow. I am not doing a 1:1 replica, which is impossible, and some details will be simplified to save time. I do use extensive mods, including new blocks, so expect to see things not in vanilla Minecraft.

    The EB maps are straight horizontally but angled vertically. For the most part I'm straightening them as I can't do angled roads. Fourside had to be totally straightened as a result. You can walk from one end of the map to the other.

    Building interiors are separate structures, considering the exteriors are often 2 x 5 blocks. A command block is buried under the door, linked to an invisible pressure plate, which when stepped on triggers a teleport player command that seamlessly sends you inside. Similar setups inside send you back out. This is instant, and provided I have the interior built the proper direction, works as if you simply walked inside. Interiors are lit with "glow paint" from a mod, which is an invisible light source that means I'm not cluttering a room with torches.

    I will link the images, as they are large files and there are more than the post limit allows.

    going into the tunnel. I use command blocks to fast travel around the map, they will likely be taken out when no longer needed

    Update-

    Plenty of progress on Onett so far. Almost all building interiors are finished, I only need to make the City Hall and the Sanctuary cave, and I'm about 25% done with the cave now.

    Update-

    Onett is 100% done. All building interiors are finished and they've been covered up with either trees or hills so they don't stick out. I have 7 of 16 interiors done in Twoson, this time I'm building as many as I can inside the existing hills- which I should've done in Onett.

    99% finished overall with recreating the game right now. Just doing some final detail tweaking and bug fixes where MCedit broke some stuff.

    That's awesome. Good work! I still don't get Minecraft but I love Earthbound.
