    Minecraft virtual Denmark griefed

    Who could have seen this happening!?

    Denmark dynamited by cunning American Minecraft vandals

    Last week, the Danish government put a 1:1 scale replica of its country online at Minecraft and invited players to politely explore the land of Lego and Carlsberg. Gamers being what they are, you can guess what happened next."Several large Danish towns have been leveled to the ground and a lot of new things have been built all over the place," Chris Hammeken, chief press officer at the Danish GeoData Agency, told state media outlet DR. "We don't have a complete overview yet, but we'll probably choose to reconstruct Copenhagen and the other cities."




    The agency built the Minecraft model to show off its mapping data and it was intended for such wholesome uses as teaching local schoolchildren about town planning and encouraging design skills. The country data is also available as a 1TB download, and extra servers have had to be brought online because the download is so popular.


    When the original map was posted, the government agency asked that users be polite and create something for everything they took apart. In addition, the use of in-game dynamite was banned on the map to avoid any trouble.

    Read this one on BBC News earlier. Doesn't surprise me at all.
    I kind of want to download the map even though I don't play a lot of Minecraft anymore.. I should get back into it.. Is fun.

    It made me think of this picture I saw on Reddit a while back:
