Danish Minecraft

One of my friends posted this wonderful article on Facebook today.

There’s a game called Minecraft that you might’ve heard of.

In Minecraft you don’t really do anything except mine for cool minerals that you need to build things. Then you build things.

You can build pretty much anything in Minecraft.

Some people have built skyscrapers. A lot of people do pyramids. A few people build programs that can do basic math calculations. I saw one guy build a scale model of the Enterprise from Star Trek.

The article says that the Danish Geodata Agency recently released a map of Denmark for Minecraft.

I had to look up what the Danish Geodata Agency is. It’s apparently the land surveying part of the government in Denmark.

So they surveyed all that land and then turned it into a map for Minecraft.

Upon the maps release, some lovely Americans did what you can see above to the map.

They steered some dynamite carts into various Danish towns in the game and blew them up, planting American flags on the ruins.

The Danish Geodata Agency had this to say, “We consider that as a nature of playing Minecraft – elements are broken down and new are being created…We are very happy to see so many players around the world creating fancy nice things and have fun.”

Basically, they are totally cool with Americans pretending to blow up Denmark.

I think that’s pretty funny. I laughed my horse laugh.
