Minecraft: INFINITE sq. miles.

Look this up, this game/sim is 4.6^32 cubic lightyears of mostly randomly generated universe free to explore from inside nebulae to the event horizon of black holes. It was created by this awesome russian and it will blow your mind!

Calculated size of the Minecraft world is, when viewed from much the same angle seen in your picture, much like the size of Uranus when viewed from a similar angle.

Actually it's roughly the size of Venus (according to notch)

It's not infinite, but it's pretty damn close. Constantly going in one direction for an entire 5 years in real life wouldn't even come close to the full size of the Minecraft world.

You'd need a bloody supercomputer for that.

It is said that it's three times bigger than earth itself.

...Pretty ******* big.

Actually it's possible to reach the "edge" by using extreme-speed flying mods pretty quickly, but you need a strong computer and lots of RAM memory so it won't crash while updating chunks. Those 'edge' areas are called Far Lands. The game gets glitchy as hell as you head towards those, and eventually crashes. You can look it up on the Minecraft Wiki. :)

pretty close to infinite? enlighten me

The limit approaches infinity, are you happy now?
User avatar #524 to #300 - TheAviator (08/28/2012) [-]
it's impossible to "approach infinity" because infinity doesn't start anywhere, it's endless. if anything has a limit it's nowhere near infinity.

It does not take 5 years. one guy walked to the farlands already

Nothing is close to infinite. You can never get anywhere near it, it is a hypothetical constant that will be vastly bigger than anything you can imagine as it has no defined value.
#590 to #398 - anonymous (08/28/2012) [-]
A graphical representation of y=x^2 would approach both a positive and negative infinity without actually reaching either. Therefore, it is "close" to infinity.

Neptune's equator is about 30,700 miles around. How long do you think it would take to walk around that?

So he hasn't done it, so you don't know his name, because no one has done it.
User avatar #62 to #52 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
Even though no one has done it, minecraft has rules determined by mathematic algorithms. Some simple math shows that the far lands begin after approximately 820 hours of walking in one direction in minecraft. However, since the far lands have been removed post 1.8 the minecraft world now extends out to 30,000,000 meters in one direction, taking 1960 hours to traverse, or 81 days. While a **** ton of time, far short of the 5 year estimate mentioned.
User avatar #104 to #62 - aximil ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
So you're saying it'll take less than 4 days walking on foot to circle Neptune?
User avatar #108 to #104 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
how bout you read the ******* comment mate. i said 81 days. and thats just radius, edge to edge it would take 162 days. where the **** did you pull 4 from?

there sure is a whole lot of butthurt going on in this thread.
#585 to #108 - failwhaleftwtoo **User deleted account** has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #144 to #108 - aximil ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
If you're not seeing where I got 4 days from, you should probably read your comment again. Also, all the butthurt is coming from you and failwhale.
User avatar #151 to #144 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
please quote it then, because the only times I mentioned were 820 hours (34 days) and 1960 hours (81 days)

And im not seeing how im contributing to all the butthurt considering i dropped by for one comment, dropping some facts from the wiki.
User avatar #153 to #151 - aximil ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
Again, read your comment again. If you can't see it, I feel bad for you. Also, since when is 3 comments the same thing as 1 comment?
User avatar #165 to #153 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
Im seriously not ******* seeing it.

breakdown of my comment:
before 1.8: 820 hours to reach edge of minecraft world
after 1.8: 1960 hours to reach edge of minecraft world

both of those times are far over 4 days and those were the only two timestamps I mentioned, please, enlighten me.

also I stopped by for one comment before you made a comment which is apparantly STILL confusing me.
User avatar #432 to #165 - ihasapie (08/28/2012) [-]
Before 1.8 it ended at You need to login to view this link or so, but after 1.8 it ends at 30.000.000.

Did you could "far lands" as the end?
User avatar #168 to #165 - aximil ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
I'll just leave you to wonder until you can see it on your own, or have someone kind enough to point it out for you.
#253 to #168 - thebuilder (08/28/2012) [-]
What the **** is wrong with you dude? He never said 4. So what. the. **** . are. you. talking. about.

Either you are just a horrible ******* troll or somehow you got four days by trying to compare your 30000 miles to his 30000000 meter comment which is roughly 50000 miles. That totals out to be 20000 miles more which even if you were dumb enough to **** up your math is not even close to 4 days. Also, I can't find a youtube video of you having sex with a woman, so you must not be too into them. That's just how it works I guess.
User avatar #339 to #216 - aximil ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
"Either you are just a horrible ******* troll"
I'd have to say I'm pretty damn good, as I got so many peoples riled up and butthurt.
#518 to #339 - inetus (08/28/2012) [-]
Seriously. You tried, failed and now you're pretending that you were trolling? Just stop
#406 to #339 - mrchewy (08/28/2012) [-]
"I just trolled you". - You're not a troll then, a troll is someone with enough intellect to disguise it properly who doesn't come out and state such like a five year old attempting to act cool but just ending up looking like a retard.

Read the quote below and you shall have your true answer.

"I'm reverting to stating I'm a troll because I'm just ******* stupid". - The likely motive.

User avatar #173 to #168 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
okay, the circumference of neptune is 96,685 miles. say you walk at pace of 4 miles an hours, it would take 24171 hours or about 1007 days to circumnavigate neptune. I dont know where I wrote or where you read that I believe it could be done in 4 days and I'm sorry if that was my error somewhere along the way. but I can guarantee you two things: You cannot travel the equator of neptune in four days and you can reach the edge of minecraft well within a year if always on the move. Im sorry that this has caused so much needless debate, could we put an end to it? on good terms?
User avatar #268 to #173 - anonymouslive (08/28/2012) [-]
Interesting. See, I wanna see in like 10 years or something if anyone has like a server where they filled all that space. Would be interesting to see some people's world sizes. Especially since I'm sure people will play it that long aha.
User avatar #658 to #268 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
This man is doing it for charity, go watch his **** , hes hilarious. In his most recent marathon he reached 600,000 blocks out, hes still got a ways to go and the last time he checked his world size was over 2 gigs.
User avatar #210 to #173 - anonymouslive (08/28/2012) [-]
I would just like to add, No where did I see mention of four days, either.
I also was unaware of the far lands removal. DO you know what happens when you reach the end of the world now?
User avatar #230 to #210 - gildemoono (08/28/2012) [-]
The removal of the farlands was accidental when the terrain generation code was changed for 1.8, but with no plans to reintroduce it. Now the way it works is that the farther you go out the more frequent and large ocean biomes are, by the time you've reached where the original farlands were, finding an island would be like trying to find a monster spawner with a golden apple. at the 30,000,000 mark there is a hard wall where you can go no farther. beyond this point the player can see many disconnected glitchy mountain biome chunks. the Biomes are completely false as no clipping over there shows they have no lighting and have no tangibility. This goes on until 32,000,000 where if the play enters, will not die, but become eternally stuck in one spot, unable to move. the only resolution at this point is the deletion of the world.
User avatar #29 to #23 - Danshu (08/27/2012) [-]
Not an infinite playable area. The size is roughly a little bigger than neptune, but because it is random generated, there's no way to catch a solid grasp of it.
User avatar #30 to #29 - gggeee (08/27/2012) [-]
Theoretically it is infinite, but a computer powerful enough to handle the size of the map and it's unoptimized coding would be no where near commercially available
User avatar #39 to #30 - Danshu (08/27/2012) [-]
But the playable area is not infinite. Yeah, it's roughly the size of neptune, but beyond it's limits are chunks that generate, but without lighting, for you can fall right through them. So the playable area is finite. Google it.
User avatar #47 to #39 - andimac (08/28/2012) [-]
Ah, but. You also have to count that every time you start a new world, it generates completely differently than before. Every time you start a game of just cause for example, it will always be the same thing. But minecraft is always different. So, playable area is infinite.
User avatar #70 to #47 - zgbgydug ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
Well, that's also not true. The possible number of areas is incredibly large, but because the world isn't actually randomly generated (a seed represented by a large number is used), there is no way that Minecraft could be considered infinitely large using that logic.
User avatar #729 to #70 - andimac (08/28/2012) [-]
But the chance of getting a world thats identical to another one is pretty slim.
