30 Oct 2014 by Mason LaPointe, 1 Comment »

A student from Delaware has spent two years building a virtual world he has named Titan City in the video game Minecraft. Titan City is constructed out of 4.5 million Minecraft building blocks and contains 96 buildings. The creator, Duncan Parcells, says it has taken him two years to build, averaging up to five hours a week on the project. His first building was a virtual version of the World Trade Center, which took 18 months to perfect. However, the 19-year-old says Titan City is not a realistic model of New York, it is inspired by New York he told the BBC.

He built the city using the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft but has now transferred it to the PC version which, he says, offers more construction opportunities. Mr. Parcells plans to add an airport and a sports stadium to Titan City. He says that he has always liked architecture and that he is most proud of the less modern builds, the more art deco, Victorian-style builds. A lot of Minecraft players drop by and help build Titan City from time to time. While Titan City has received a warm welcome online, Mr Parcells said that until now he had kept his virtual world separate from his daily life.
