Actually it's roughly the size of Venus (according to notch)

the minecraft world is actually as bis as neptun.... NEPTUN!

Look this up, this game/sim is 4.6^32 cubic lightyears of mostly randomly generated universe free to explore from inside nebulae to the event horizon of black holes. It was created by this awesome russian and it will blow your mind!

Not an infinite playable area. The size is roughly a little bigger than neptune, but because it is random generated, there's no way to catch a solid grasp of it.
User avatar #30 to #29 - gggeee (08/27/2012) [-]
Theoretically it is infinite, but a computer powerful enough to handle the size of the map and it's unoptimized coding would be no where near commercially available
User avatar #39 to #30 - Danshu [OP](08/27/2012) [-]
But the playable area is not infinite. Yeah, it's roughly the size of neptune, but beyond it's limits are chunks that generate, but without lighting, for you can fall right through them. So the playable area is finite. Google it.
User avatar #47 to #39 - andimac (08/28/2012) [-]
Ah, but. You also have to count that every time you start a new world, it generates completely differently than before. Every time you start a game of just cause for example, it will always be the same thing. But minecraft is always different. So, playable area is infinite.
User avatar #70 to #47 - zgbgydug ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
Well, that's also not true. The possible number of areas is incredibly large, but because the world isn't actually randomly generated (a seed represented by a large number is used), there is no way that Minecraft could be considered infinitely large using that logic.
User avatar #729 to #70 - andimac (08/28/2012) [-]
But the chance of getting a world thats identical to another one is pretty slim.
#587 to #23 - anon (08/28/2012) [-]
Calculated size of the Minecraft world is, when viewed from much the same angle seen in your picture, much like the size of Uranus when viewed from a similar angle.
User avatar #34 to #23 - aximil (08/27/2012) [-]
It's not infinite, but it's pretty damn close. Constantly going in one direction for an entire 5 years in real life wouldn't even come close to the full size of the Minecraft world.
#335 to #34 - anon (08/28/2012) [-]
pretty close to infinite? enlighten me
User avatar #300 to #34 - MarkusEbear (08/28/2012) [-]
The limit approaches infinity, are you happy now?
User avatar #524 to #300 - TheAviator (08/28/2012) [-]
it's impossible to "approach infinity" because infinity doesn't start anywhere, it's endless. if anything has a limit it's nowhere near infinity.

Nothing is close to infinite. You can never get anywhere near it, it is a hypothetical constant that will be vastly bigger than anything you can imagine as it has no defined value.
User avatar #433 to #398 - mikelan (08/28/2012) [-]
infinite minus 1
#590 to #398 - anon (08/28/2012) [-]
A graphical representation of y=x^2 would approach both a positive and negative infinity without actually reaching either. Therefore, it is "close" to infinity.

User avatar #62 to #52 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
Even though no one has done it, minecraft has rules determined by mathematic algorithms. Some simple math shows that the far lands begin after approximately 820 hours of walking in one direction in minecraft. However, since the far lands have been removed post 1.8 the minecraft world now extends out to 30,000,000 meters in one direction, taking 1960 hours to traverse, or 81 days. While a **** ton of time, far short of the 5 year estimate mentioned.
User avatar #104 to #62 - aximil (08/28/2012) [-]
So you're saying it'll take less than 4 days walking on foot to circle Neptune?
User avatar #108 to #104 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
how bout you read the ******* comment mate. i said 81 days. and thats just radius, edge to edge it would take 162 days. where the **** did you pull 4 from?

there sure is a whole lot of butthurt going on in this thread.
#585 to #108 - failwhaleftwtoo **User deleted account** has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #144 to #108 - aximil (08/28/2012) [-]
If you're not seeing where I got 4 days from, you should probably read your comment again. Also, all the butthurt is coming from you and failwhale.
User avatar #151 to #144 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
please quote it then, because the only times I mentioned were 820 hours (34 days) and 1960 hours (81 days)

And im not seeing how im contributing to all the butthurt considering i dropped by for one comment, dropping some facts from the wiki.
User avatar #153 to #151 - aximil (08/28/2012) [-]
Again, read your comment again. If you can't see it, I feel bad for you. Also, since when is 3 comments the same thing as 1 comment?
User avatar #165 to #153 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
Im seriously not ******* seeing it.

breakdown of my comment:
before 1.8: 820 hours to reach edge of minecraft world
after 1.8: 1960 hours to reach edge of minecraft world

both of those times are far over 4 days and those were the only two timestamps I mentioned, please, enlighten me.

also I stopped by for one comment before you made a comment which is apparantly STILL confusing me.
User avatar #432 to #165 - ihasapie (08/28/2012) [-]
Before 1.8 it ended at You need to login to view this link or so, but after 1.8 it ends at 30.000.000.

Did you could "far lands" as the end?

okay, the circumference of neptune is 96,685 miles. say you walk at pace of 4 miles an hours, it would take 24171 hours or about 1007 days to circumnavigate neptune. I dont know where I wrote or where you read that I believe it could be done in 4 days and I'm sorry if that was my error somewhere along the way. but I can guarantee you two things: You cannot travel the equator of neptune in four days and you can reach the edge of minecraft well within a year if always on the move. Im sorry that this has caused so much needless debate, could we put an end to it? on good terms?
User avatar #210 to #173 - anonymouslive (08/28/2012) [-]
I would just like to add, No where did I see mention of four days, either.
I also was unaware of the far lands removal. DO you know what happens when you reach the end of the world now?

User avatar #230 to #210 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
The removal of the farlands was accidental when the terrain generation code was changed for 1.8, but with no plans to reintroduce it. Now the way it works is that the farther you go out the more frequent and large ocean biomes are, by the time you've reached where the original farlands were, finding an island would be like trying to find a monster spawner with a golden apple. at the 30,000,000 mark there is a hard wall where you can go no farther. beyond this point the player can see many disconnected glitchy mountain biome chunks. the Biomes are completely false as no clipping over there shows they have no lighting and have no tangibility. This goes on until 32,000,000 where if the play enters, will not die, but become eternally stuck in one spot, unable to move. the only resolution at this point is the deletion of the world.
User avatar #268 to #173 - anonymouslive (08/28/2012) [-]
Interesting. See, I wanna see in like 10 years or something if anyone has like a server where they filled all that space. Would be interesting to see some people's world sizes. Especially since I'm sure people will play it that long aha.
User avatar #658 to #268 - gildemoono ONLINE (08/28/2012) [-]
This man is doing it for charity, go watch his **** , hes hilarious. In his most recent marathon he reached 600,000 blocks out, hes still got a ways to go and the last time he checked his world size was over 2 gigs.
#216 to #168 - anon (08/28/2012) [-]
Either you are just a horrible ******* troll or somehow you got four days by trying to compare your 30000 miles to his 30000000 meter comment which is roughly 50000 miles. That totals out to be 20000 miles more which even if you were dumb enough to **** up your math is not even close to 4 days. Also, I can't find a youtube video of you having sex with a woman, so you must not be too into them. That's just how it works I guess.
User avatar #339 to #216 - aximil (08/28/2012) [-]
"Either you are just a horrible ******* troll"

"I just trolled you". - You're not a troll then, a troll is someone with enough intellect to disguise it properly who doesn't come out and state such like a five year old attempting to act cool but just ending up looking like a retard.

Read the quote below and you shall have your true answer.

"I'm reverting to stating I'm a troll because I'm just ******* stupid". - The likely motive.

User avatar #552 to #34 - raincollie (08/28/2012) [-]
Actually it's possible to reach the "edge" by using extreme-speed flying mods pretty quickly, but you need a strong computer and lots of RAM memory so it won't crash while updating chunks. Those 'edge' areas are called Far Lands. The game gets glitchy as hell as you head towards those, and eventually crashes. You can look it up on the Minecraft Wiki. :)

User avatar #132 to #121 - OddityInfintas (08/28/2012) [-]
Yes but the in game area was actually pretty small, it was smaller than fuel in terms of time to destination. Scale is not what counts but actual distance traveled. So even if you traveled 90 billion light years in spore it only took about 5 min, but in Fuel or Guild Wars traveling a few miles would take a realistic time and is therefore the bigger map.
