A fan spends hundreds of hours building environments and working levels from Destiny into Minecraft, sporting an impressive level of detail and design.
When Destiny launched in September 2014, players started off having their Guardians awoken by their Ghost (RIP Dinklebot) on Earth. That first story mission took fans through the walls of the Cosmodrome, eventually leading them to the Tower.
One dedicated fan of both Destiny and Minecraft has recreated that section of the game inside Minecraft. In his Minecraft creation, players are able to select one of Destiny‘s three classes—Hunter, Titan, or Warlock—each with their unique gear.
The creator of the levels, who goes by infered5 on Reddit, uses some of the starting gear for each class on a player’s character: “Hunters get Tracker 1.0, Warlocks get Vector Oath, and Titans get Scoutmail.” Each class also has its own unique grenade. The starting weapon is modeled after the first assault rifle players pick up in Destiny, the Khvostov 7G-02.
Players can also pull up a Ghost to transport themselves to earth, the Tower, or the Reef. Infered says it has taken hundreds of hours to build the levels, which includes a 1:1 scale of the Cosmodrome locations the “Steppes to Dock 13 and beyond, including Breach and Devil’s Lair.”
Beyond the locales from the Cosmodrome, infered5 also created the Tower, which even features of working Cryptarch. Why a working Cryptarch? Because engrams with varying levels of rarity drop from mobs. Those engrams can be decoded “into several different weapons or armor pieces.” Infered5 has even made the armor upgradeable.
The levels were created “using a combination of several well known plugins and several not as well known ones.” It is available on infered5’s server, and anyone can connect to it with any 1.8.x or 1.9.0 client. Infered5 was unable to share the IP to the server on Reddit because it would be flagged and removed from the site, but anyone wanting to play it can contact infered5 directly.
This isn’t the first time a Destiny level has been recreated inside of Minecraft, with someone building the Crota’s End raid from The Dark Below expansion last year. Outside of Destiny creations, Los Santos from Grand Theft Auto 5 was also recently recreated in Minecraft.
