It looks as if I needs to be desensitized to the impression of large-scale Minecraft builds in any case these years however simply after I assume I’ve seen all of it somebody goes and begins posting screenshots of a construct that appears right out of Bloodborne. Super expert builder Potomy has spent 4 months on this venture to date and nonetheless has larger plans but for turning it right into a customized downloadable map, they inform me. Even if I did not ever get to play inside this construct, it is making my eyes fairly rattling completely satisfied simply to have a look at.
For this map, Potomy has designed huge Gothic constructions primarily based on among the massive Bloodborne buildings you may keep in mind looming over you in Yharnam: the Astral Clocktower, the Iosefka’s Clinic hub, and the massive essential gate of the Cathedral Ward.
Like Bloodborne itself, I’m shocked by simply how attractive one thing so grey can look. Potomy’s Bloodborne-inspired buildings are all huge, utilizing depth so as to add variation to its monochromatic colour palette of stone, cobblestone, and iron bar blocks. Like different large Minecraft builds, the size that Potomy is working at permits for some actually intricate detailing on every constructing. Paired with the customized textures that Potomy is engaged on and a few nice Minecraft shaders (they’re utilizing the BSL shaders) these screenshots simply bleed spooky ambiance.

Potomy’s custom-made texture pack is performing some lifting in a few these instances. The iron bars in a pair shots, for example, are far more tall and detailed than in vanilla Minecraft. Same goes for the whorls of these lamp posts. Most of it’s pure Minecraft although. The big round home windows are constructed with numerous stone brick stair items and quaint ingenuity.
The timelapse movies on Potomy’s YouTube channel are significantly illustrative of the method. You can spot the factors where they’re designing bits of structure by hand earlier than utilizing the WorldEdit mod to repeat and replicate totally different sections. Even with the assistance of that device, Potomy estimated that they’d spent 76 hours on the venture as of two months in the past. If they’ve managed to hold tempo since then, they’re properly previous spending 100 hours on this feat.
There’s a lot left to go, although. Potomy tells me that they are planning for this construct to ultimately be an journey map with a concentrate on fight. They ultimately wish to make the venture out there on the Bedrock market where they’ve revealed numerous different creations already. This remains to be Minecraft, thoughts, so it is not going to carry a candle to the potential of Bloodborne on PC, however it positive may very well be a really cool tribute.
