Minecraft has given people across the world a way to pay respect and tribute to movies and fictional characters they love. The incredibly simple and creative sandbox game gives users the ultimate freedom to build whatever they want. Over the years, many players have recreated buildings, and locations from their favorite movies and TV shows to pay tribute. Now, a Minecraft player has constructed a part of the towering fantasy city of Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings franchise in the most beautiful way possible.
Minecraft players have been recreating several constructions to pay tribute for a long time
The Lord of the Rings franchise has built itself a fanbase as huge as anyone can imagine. The reason behind this huge fandom is the wonderful themes of overcoming adversity, the bonds of friendship, and perseverance, and the incredibly influential characters in the movie. Over the years, Minecraft players have recreated several constructions from the franchises to pay tribute like; The Bag End, the Hobbit town, the Prancing Pony, Bree, and many more.
Minas Tirith in Minecraft: The capital city of Gondor from the Lord of the Rings
The capital city of Gondor, Minas Tirith was once called Minas Anor, before the fortress of Minas Ithil was conquered by the forces of Mordor. The original name of the tower means Tower of the Sun and Minas Tirith means Tower of the Guard. The intention of the name change was to clarify Gondor’s stand against the darkness after the fall of Minas Ithil.
Minecraft Player, Eagoid shared the post on Reddit, where the progress of the recreation can be seen. The perfect medieval landscape architecture can be seen on the post with a border of stone blocks that let us see through Minas Tirith. On the other hand, the massive fortress with a huge dome on top with a slightly darker green shade and a white pinch can blend perfectly with the nearby landscape. The dome has a decoration on top that is currently not fully visible because of the screenshot size.
Soon as the screenshot was live, Redditors took to debates and discussions where some appreciated the skills of the player, while others condemned him for using a mod to build the structure. Redditors accused Eagoid of using the Conquest Reforged mod – SEUS shaders to add a sense of detail and realism to this Minecraft build. Discussions also highlighted the necessary use of the Conquest Reforged mod to bring the medieval landscape texture to the build.
