Minecraft: Complete game world of Half-Life 2 on one map


A group of Minecraft players has made it their task to accommodate the entire game world of Half-Life 2 in one Minecraft map. KrEsHDiE and his team have been working on this project for more than five years. The end is not yet in sight, but fans can still take a look at City-17 in Minecraft. Either you download the map directly to Planet Minecraft or you watch the trailer for the project.

The hobbyists do not only focus on the city - numerous other parts of the world of Half-Life can also be visited in Minecraft. Even the ship Borealis, which might have served as the setting for Half-Life 3 or Episode 3, can be found in the project. The team is currently working on Black Mesa, the Aperture Science Lab, Episode 2 and Highway 17. Fans repeatedly use the Half-Life universe for special projects. Among other things, we have reported on a demake for the Game Boy in the past. But a real-time strategy game has already been designed with the help of Half-Life.

When is Minecraft 1.18 expected to come out? Everything we know so far

The Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update was the latest major update announced by Mojang in 2020. It promised brand new mobs, biomes, blocks, and most importantly, major changes in Minecraft world generation.

Because the update was so expansive, the Minecraft game developers followed up by announcing that the Caves & Cliffs update had to be split up into two separate releases. Though unfortunate for fans, this made the coding much easier on the game developers and allowed them to spend more time perfecting the new game changes.

The Minecraft 1.17 update was officially released as Caves & Cliffs Part One back in June of 2021. This update introduced some new mobs and most new blocks that were promised by Mojang. However, the biome and world generation changes were postponed.

Part Two of the Caves & Cliffs update, also referred to as the Minecraft 1.18 update, has yet to be released. This is all the information currently known about the 1.18 update is featured in this article.

Unfortunately, there is still no confirmed date for the Minecraft 1.18 update. While there is no exact date yet, gamers should expect the 1.18 Minecraft update towards the end of 2021.

If all goes well for the game developers, the update should be released during the December holiday season. It is likely that the 1.18 Minecraft update will make its debut before Christmas as well.

In the meantime, gamers can get a sneak peak at the new changes expected in the 1.18 update by using snapshots. In September, Mojang will release regular snapshots for any Minecraft player to try out.

Before that, gamers can try out the experimental snapshots if they are willing to test them. Experimental snapshots are beta versions of the 1.18 update, so what gamers see in this Minecraft snapshot may not be exactly what ends up being released in December.

This YouTube video by slicedlime showcases some of the awesome features of the latest 1.18 snapshot:

Minecraft game developer Henrik Kniberg shared this image on Twitter, praising the improvements in world generation that can be seen in the most recent snapshot:

Overall, there are many new changes that will finally be implemented into Minecraft once the 1.18 update is officially released in December, and this second Caves & Cliffs update will change the game much more drastically than its 1.17 counterpart.
