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 suppose I’ve seen all of it somebody goes and begins posting screenshots of a construct that appears proper out of Bloodborne. Tremendous expert builder Potomy has spent 4 months on this challenge to date and nonetheless has greater plans but for turning it right into a customized downloadable map, they inform me. Even when I did not ever get to play inside this construct, it is making my eyes fairly rattling pleased simply to have a look at.
For this map, Potomy has designed huge Gothic constructions primarily based on a few of the large Bloodborne buildings you may bear in mind looming over you in Yharnam: the Astral Clocktower, the Iosefka’s Clinic hub, and the massive major gate of the Cathedral Ward.
Like Bloodborne itself, I am 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 coloration palette of stone, cobblestone, and iron bar blocks. Like different large Minecraft builds, the dimensions 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 environment.

Potomy’s custom-made texture pack is performing some lifting in a few these instances. The iron bars in a pair photographs, as an illustration, are far more tall and detailed than in vanilla Minecraft. Identical goes for the whorls of these lamp posts. Most of it’s pure Minecraft although. The large round home windows are constructed with a lot of stone brick stair items and quaint ingenuity.
The timelapse movies on Potomy’s YouTube channel are significantly illustrative of the method. You’ll be able to spot the factors the place 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 software, Potomy estimated that they’d spent 76 hours on the challenge as of two months in the past. In the event that they’ve managed to maintain tempo since then, they’re nicely 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 give attention to fight. They ultimately need to make the challenge obtainable on the Bedrock market the place they’ve revealed a lot of different creations already. That is nonetheless Minecraft, thoughts, so it isn’t going to carry a candle to the potential for Bloodborne on PC, nevertheless it positive may very well be a really cool tribute.
