Minecraft-Denmark blown up

Neulich hatte ich über das Minecraft-Projekt der dänischen Geodata Agency gebloggt, die das komplette Land im Maßstab 1:1 im Game nachgebaut hatten. Selbstverständlich haben Kids das Land nun hochgejagt und fahren mit amerikanischen Voxel-Panzern durch die Fjorde. This is why we can't have nice things.

The Danish Geodata Agency, disabled the ability to use dynamite, but neglected to disable the minecart with dynamite item. According to The Register, players discovered this, set off explosives in several Danish towns, and built American tanks and flags on top of the ruins.

"We consider that as a nature of playing Minecraft – elements are broken down and new are being created,” Danish Geodata Agency spokesman Chris Hammeken told The Register. “Therefore we will not reboot the demonstration of Denmark in Minecraft. But occasionally we will rebuild minor areas if buildings are removed and nothing new is being created."
