Have you seen the 1980 movie The Shining? If so, then you must remember the hotel, the Overlook Hotel to be exact. Well, that thing always fascinated me, so I became inspired to create a full scale replica of it in Minecraft! I suppose I'm not the first, I saw a video of someone else's version, but to be honest I think it sucked. I tried to get mine as accurate as possible.
The Colorado Lounge. I made it a little too wide, but it's not a big deal.
Another view of the Lounge. (Updated ceiling)
The Gold Room.
The Red Bathroom, with working mirrors
A view of one of the hallways, complete with that trippy iconic carpet pattern. Well, the best you can do in Minecraft, at least.
Another hallway view.
Staff quarters hallway
The Hedge Maze
That's about it. I also built the manager's office, games room, room 237, and plenty of other hallways but didn't bother to take screenshots of them. There are also a couple of easter eggs I'm sure you'll be happy to find c:
Other important things: I want to give special thanks to Bryant Arnett. Even though I don't know him personally, he went to the trouble of mapping out the ENTIRE hotel and making it into a Duke Nukem level. I used that as my main reference, and it couldn't have helped more. Download it here: http://www.theshinin...om/download.htm
Also, I welcome anyone to turn this into an adventure or survival map. But if you do, I request one thing, PLEASE give me credit for being the one who actually built the map, and it'd be nice to provide a link to this page. That's all I ask.
