The user on Reddit known as Miksu23 recently revealed how they used Minecraft to recreate all the cities in Oblivion. The result is quite a spectacular achievement in level design. “They’re all finally complete with some extra structures like Cloud Ruler Temple,” Miksu23 noted.
News of this impressive feat is making the rounds on Reddit. The announcement, posted just five days ago, currently has more than 2,000 upvotes and several dozen comments. “I screamed when I saw Cheydinhal,” commented the user named DarkAligator61. “I expect Pelinal Whitestrake to be walking up and down any minute,” added another user named MagmaticPenguin.
Miksu23 allows players to download and install their work in the form of a complete build of the game world. “Oh, this is great,” commented the user known as PSPDude. “I see too many great builds on Minecraft that don’t end up offering a world download to properly appreciate the builds and it starts to get annoying after a while. Renders only go so far. With large scale builds, sometimes you just get a better feeling walking around. †
This comes in the wake of several other large-scale projects aimed at modernizing Oblivion, of which Skyblivion should be the best known. This mod is all about using the game engine for Skyrim to recreate Oblivion. The project has been running for almost a decade. “We’re seeing the end of the tunnel, but it’s hard to say when that will be,” commented one of the developers about the release date. “We are closer to the end than to the beginning, but it’s a matter of onboarding. People go on vacation, have more work to do and have priorities in real life. So it’s nice to see the end of the tunnel, but we can’t give a release date because it’s a mod project after all.”
When it comes to Minecraft, players have been creating their favorite game worlds for years. For example, someone called DawnArchi recently remade the entirety of Teyvat from Genshin Impact. “The map contains the most recognizable settings and buildings in Genshin Impact,” the player noted. “I wonder how many of them you can recognize!” DawnArchi noted that many of the constructs “have had more than ten days of work behind them.”
