Minecraft and The Lord of the Rings have always had one thing in common: they have both consumed an ungodly amount of hours of my life. I love both very dearly. So when I saw that Reddit user "Fornad" and his buddies over at ArdaCraft have spent the better part of a year painstakingly recreating The Shire in its entirety, I nearly went cuckoo for Minecraft-puffs! (That's a thing... right?)
The insane amount of detail and attention to accuracy is astounding. Many of my favorite Minecraft builds are those that make the world look more natural and complete. And what better way to show off your terraforming skills than to build the got-damned Shire?! I posted a trailer the team put together below. But if you'd like to jump on and check out this build yourself,ArdaCraft currently run a 150 player server. If you love really cool Minecraft builds, or The Lord of the Rings, you owe it to yourself to check this out!
