Largest Mapart in Survival Minecraft[edit | edit source]

The greatest feat of Oldfag's mapartists was one that will go down in the history books of all of Minecraft- through the course of 10 months and the work of 27 people, "The Last Supper" was created, a 30x11 mapart, the largest ever made in survival Minecraft. The project was proposed in September of 2020 and started a month later, lead largely by Podrockian, FRGR, and tckrtxa. It was organized through a spreadsheet system, where each person was assigned specific parts of the spreadsheet to work on, this itself being managed and maintained by AgentFrog1, and the massive schematic managed by Addalad. The 330th map was finished on August 13th 2021, setting a world record for Minecraft's maparts.
