are you meaning a exact or close replica of the world or just something the same size?


replica would be very hard tho. lets just say the same size.


PC version of Minecraft.

Maximum world size is 8th times larger than Earth.

do you think it would be possible. obviously not this or next gen but how long do you think it would be before we can have a chance to see something like that.


It already exists. Evochron Mercenary is a 1:1 sandbox game. Except in space. Even the space is 1:1

Space is really really big, yo.

edit: by even the space is 1:1, I mean there are planets you can visit, those planets are 1:1, and so is the space around them.

How much detail are we talking about here? Are we talking the entirety of Yellowstone will be pinpoint accurate to the rock or something?

In that case, it wouldn't be an issue where the technology was the issue, it would be that the game would just take 40 years to create with an army of programmers.

Evochron Mercenary got around that by procedurally generating the galaxy. Entire 1:1 Galaxy to explore. Time to create: not very long

edit: of course, not really a lot to explore, since space is really big, and also really empty.

Came here to say Minecraft, but I was beat.


If you mean a world that's not randomly generated, that probably wont happen.

the volume occupied by 100+billion stars and planets is peanuts compared to the volume occupied by everything else (which is nothing).

The vast majority of space is empty, even within a galaxy stars are still many light years apart. And to go from one end of the galaxy would take thousands of years at the speed of light, years in between stars, and there might be no planets orbiting a star.
