Well, some of you guys want to know how big is Minecraft?
But, I don't know how big is the "End" world of Minecraft.
Let's start for a Minecraft block.
One block is 1 meter wide, 1 meter long, and 1 meter thick. (Or 1 cubic meter "1 m3")
In Classic to Indev, there are 3 types of world sizes. Small, Normal and Huge.
Small is 16384 m2. Normal is 65536 m2. Huge is 262144 m2.
But when Infdev (or any update after Indev and before The Adventure Update "1.8 Beta") came out, the world is infinite. It is 12.5 million meters long from the world center. (Or 25.0 million meters long and wide.) At the edge of the world, these giant cliffs with giant holes called "The Farlands". It have the Edge and Corner Farlands. The Edge Farlands are walls with giant holes in it. The Corner Farlands (also known as "The Stack"!) are a giant square that have different layers of biomes and stuff. But this also only exists before 1.8 Beta.
When The Adventure Update came out, It is even Bigger. It is 30 million blocks from the center of the world to reach the edge. And thats means it is 60 million blocks wide and 60 million blocks long. But, there are no Farlands. There is a ocean. at the bottom of it is filled with dirt. There is a lighting glitch at the border. The blocks in the "Adventure Farlands" is weird. We can go through it. But if you go further in the Farlands, your game crashes.
If a Minecraft world is 60 million blocks wide and long, that's mean that the surface of Minecraft is 3.6 Quadrillion blocks. The Earth's is 510 Billion. Remember, the Minecraft's surface is 3.6 Quadrillion blocks. That's mean you can make the replica of the earth 7000 times!
But, is the world of Minecraft really "infinite"? Yes.
Minecraft PE (not sure this is right, lol):
Minecraft PE is not infinite. Yes, not infinite like the PC versions. It is 128 meters from the center of the map. That means it is 256 blocks long and 256 blocks wide.
That's about it. I am gonna update this a little. Please leave some feedback. Bye!
I wonder what would happen if the files were edited so it was 300,000,000 or something, although the game does start bugging out long before you even reach 30,000,000, such as redstone and torch flames rendering incorrectly, and most people probably stay within a few thousand blocks of spawn (I once went 25,000 across an ocean just to see how big it was).
Incorrect. Initially, I thought Neptune would be a closer match. If you take into consideration the size difference between Neptune and Uranus (Uranus being smaller, sorry ladies), and accounting for their size in sq. km, then I figured Neptune would be a much closer match:
That sizes moves under the general assumption that each minecraft block is 1m x 1m x 1m. Which means that in total:
The map is 64000000m x 64000000m x 256m or...
The map is 64000km x 64000km x 0.256km = 1,048,576,000 km^3
The surface area of Neptune is 7.618 billion km^2. Doing some quick math:
7,618,000,000 / 4 = 1904500000.
1904500000 / pi = approx. 606221178.237
sqrt(606221178.237) = approx. 24621.559km - radius saved for later
24621.559 ^ 3 = approx. 14926110638079.844
14926110638079.844 * pi(4/3) = Neptune having a size of 62,522,346,036,346.800 km^3
At this point, I thought "Well this is ridiculous, clearly minecraft isn't nearly the size of the Neptune". In fact, some quick googling revealed that in fact minecraft isn't even close to the size of Uranus (which is huge!!). In fact, minecraft is much closer to 1/20th the volume of the moon.
The volume of our moon (which is already available via wikipedia): 21,958,000,000 km^3
Now then, because of this MASSIVE error on that site, I can only assume that they weren't counting on the principles of volume but instead on the principles of simple radius or width across. In which case a typical minecraft world of 64000x64000 km would have a diagonal radius / hypotenuse of approx. 90509.668 km. However, this again makes things blown way out of proportion where this would mean that a minecraft world has a diagonal radius that is four times that of the third largest planet in our 8-planet system, aka Neptune. So once more, we have a huge error.
I have found personally that in terms of volume, and in terms of diagonal radius, minecraft worlds are much closer to the following celestial bodies:
Diagonal radius / hypotenuse is much closer to the radius of our moon's hill sphere, which is approx 87,000km
Off the top of my head, I would say that actually it might be Ariel, one of Uranus' moons, that would be closest in volume, coming in at around 812,600,000 km^2 , which is still short a good 200 million square kilometers.
tl;dr don't trust everything on the internet :D
Postwrit: I would like to point out that the site does not even have the correct current measurements for those planets.
Edit: I suppose that if you do account for the fact that Jupiter is ~66,000 km for their radius, then you could say that a sidelength of a minecraft world is about equivalent at 64,000 km. However I still stand by my point that a minecraft world probably shouldn't be measured on a galactic scale like that.
