If this week’s brisk temperatures and ensuing twinges of seasonal depression disorder haven’t already tipped you off, summer is long gone. Everything is dying, everything that was once good is now wrong, and the peculiar phenomenon known as “warming up the car” is once again rearing its ugly head. So for all of you who complained about the one time it hit a whopping 90 degrees this summer, enjoy the next 8,000 years of cold, shitty weather.
Still, we can pretend it’s still July. And what better way to do that than by checking out some insanely detailed Minecraft maps of Miller Park? For those of you unfamiliar with Minecraft, it’s an open-ended building video game that’s currently all the rage with the nation’s 8-year-old nieces and nephews. (Think virtual Legos, but with more lava.) For those of you unfamiliar with Miller Park, it’s a Major League Baseball stadium that occasionally houses a Major League Baseball team. Put the two together, and bam! A pixilated approximation of summer! Let’s take a look:
• AuthenticMinecrafter claims he’s never visited Miller Park, though you wouldn’t know it after exploring his mind-bogglingly awesome map. From the bronze statues in front of the stadium to the interiors of the home and away clubhouses, this map is a testament to both attention to detail and terrifying amounts of free time.
• Jack Strevell’s Miller Park Minecraft map features a few more torches than its real-world inspiration (we’ve never been in the stadium’s in-house jail, so we can’t say for sure), but it’s still a job well done. Bonus points for including “Barney Brewer’s dugout.”
• The interior of this map is impressive, but we’re not sure what’s going on with the exterior. Call this one a work in progress, and/or the Uecker map.
