Minecraft server connections

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

I’ve never played Minecraft, but maybe this map showing live server connections means something to those who do. “A dot is a server or a client. Lines are traced from clients connecting to servers. Lone dots are local servers.” They also have raw hardware data available for download. [Thanks, Erik]

    I really must move our server moved back to Cape Town. That way Africa might just show up on the map. :-)
    Thanks for sharing this by the way.

  • Cute! Not sure Mercator’s the best map projection to use in this case though… unless minecraft enthusiasts are likely to hit the high seas, using this map to set sail from server to server.

  • Wow. just Wow.
