Hello everyone I am new to the forum as of like 5 minutes ago. I am calling all steelers fans to help me just for something fun. I am going to spread the black and yellow virus into video game territory and need some help from you guys if I can get it.

Some of you may have heard of it some of you may not, but there is a game called minecraft. That basically... you mine blocks. And you can use these blocks to build damned near anything in a vast near unlimited world. People have built exact replicas of the starship enterprise and all other sorts of things but who needs that? I am going to try to build heinz field in a 1/2 scale in the game just to do the size it will be. What I need to try to get my hands on is a copy of the blueprints or at least the measurements or even better just direct contact via email, etc. with someone who has blueprints mounted so I can ask questions.

Right now I have build a 180' x 80' length of blocks laid out as the bedrock for what will be the field. I am working on one of the end zones right now I will post pictures of it as soon as it is done so you will all at least know what I am talking about. I have seen too many videos of people making roller coasters from mine carts and water slides and building things like hogwarts.... I am not okay with this I wanna get heinz field up.

Also if anyone has any obscure pictures of the stadium, entrances, sides of it, ackward angles etc please either send them to me or post them up. I have been there and sure I can make the field and seats and what not but I cannot recreate it all from memory. I would like to get this all built up and then post a video walking through it on facebook to converge our black and yellow brethren together with gamers that watch minecraft videos like crack! Please help me out here!

We're not going to help you spread a virus you DA. Go away and visit the Ravens blog.

Pretty sure virus is just being used as a metaphor here

Yeah.... no literal virus here... just want to be one of the first people to build a stadium in minecraft and not some gay fantasy thing, but I want to make it as accurate as I can so I need help from people that would have other resources. I am working just on the field right now.

These are the pictures of what I have done so far the one shows the length of the end zone standing at the other end, and one is taken with a block sitting on top to show the scale of one block. The one obviously speaks for itself I took from standing way up high looking down. Have to blow up an entire landscape now to make the rest of the field. Becuase of the distances that can be seen in the game it's going to be a scale of 1 block = 2 feet.

Im aware the "B" and the "R" are a little jacked up. kinda hard working within a 9x5 block using only squares for each letter.

....before anyone criticizes that. I just underwent this project today so be kind

That would be cool, if a game or something was created to play on chat!

how about a whack-a-mole game with a big #43 hammer and Joe Flacco's head?
