Ah, Rapture City. Anyone who has played Bioshock will immediately remember a number of dark encounters simply by mention of the name. Of course, if you have watched the video above already (or have read any Digital Diamond entry over the last year or so), you know where this is going - the guys over at HungerCraft have recreated Rapture City, in as much detail as possible, in Minecraft!
The video above shows a mashup of footage from the game itself, interposed with the same scenes, recreated in the recreated map in Minecraft, to show off the city in all its glory. If you are eager to get your hands on this particular gem, unfortunately it is not currently available. However, the Hungercraft guys assure us that it is in the works to make ample use of this map in a way that is accessible to anyone, so keep an ear to the ground for updates!
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins and opearting on Minecraft version 1.8!
The map looks awesome! I myself am a very big fan of bioshock and miencraft! The map must have taken ages to build. Amazing!! When the map is out, im sure this map will be as epic as it looks to play!!
I hate teasers like this. "Oh, hey.... You know this awesome thing we have? Well here is a video of it, here is why it's awesome, we know you want it, but you can't have it yet. SORRY!!!" That really annoys me. If it's something you have to pay for, it's different because that is a sound marketing strategy. For something free it's more just like saying "So you are hungry? Well how about I give you a nice juicy steak dinner with a side of mashed potatoes and peas?.... Oh, you thought I meant now? Nah, I meant sometime in the future."
I take it this is more of a loosely-themed Minecraft equivalent map than a strict-recreation of Bioshock.
The first thing I remember starting Bioshock were the giant hall/rooms/staircases (that also appear in the rest of the game) with lights automatically coming on by themselves, and then of coarse the open bathysphere.
However, the intro to this does not seem to be like that. The staircases are small, some lights are already on when you walk in, and then the character walks into complete darkness. There's some light flashing on and off, and out of nowhere now the player is falling down water source blocks gapped with air pockets.
The actual rooms inside rapture don't remind me of the actual game, either. Maybe it's the classic glowstone or redstone lamp on a fence post for lighting. maybe it's the classic trees, or just the materials they used.
In any case, it seems like a themed map more than a side-by-side recreation.

"I'm an outsider by choice, but not truly.
It’s the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out.
I’d rather be in, in a good system. That’s where my discontent comes from:
being forced to choose to stay outside.
My advice: Just keep movin’ straight ahead.
Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."
