Student creates virtual world in Minecraft

A student from America has created a virtual world in the video game Minecraft.

Duncan Parcells, who's 19-years-old, spent five hours every week building it and has named it Titan City.
It's constructed out of 4.5 million Minecraft building blocks and contains 96 buildings.
Altogether, it took him two years to complete and he says New York was his inspiration for the city. (CBBC newsround)
He used 4,5 billion blocks!

Parcells, who goes by the moniker ColonialPuppet on Xbox Live, said he built the creation on the console simply because at the time all he had was the Xbox 360 version of the game. He’s planning to move it to the PC soon however and expand his creation.
Answering questions about Titan City on a thread on Reddit, Parcells said that the buildings all “have at least some floors” but that most are without soft furnishings. “Interior work will begin once the Xbox map is filled,” he added.
One comment said what at least some of us were thinking: “Wow this is simultaneously the most impressive gaming feat I have ever seen as well as the most depressing,” but Parnells was keen to reassure his audience: “Hey man don't worry I have a life other than this […] I have a lot of friends and I go outside regularly."
