The Manhattan Project Map for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.8.9

If you’re of school age or you happen to be a history buff, you’ve probably heard about The Manhattan Project. It was a research and development project whereby the world’s first nuclear devices were crafted, just one step in a rapid arms race which concluded with the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This is some serious subject matter and only loosely related to The Manhattan Project map in Minecraft, which features an iconic view of New York City from back in the early 1940s. For fans of aging architecture and cities of the past, this map is definitely worth a look.


Real life / Minecraft










The Manhattan Project map features schools, fire stations, police departments, skyscrapers, residential neighborhoods and more. The city is massive in scope and scale and even with a team of friends, it could take days to check out every corner of every building constructed for this map. With all the content included, it would make a great custom map for a server running custom content, such as mods that add guns or other realistic elements to Minecraft. If you’ve ever wanted to rob a bank in New York, this is probably the only way you can do it where you won’t end up in prison when you’re through.

Download The Manhattan Project Map


    • There is a green download link that you click on and a tab will pull up from Media Fire. Click the green download button (says how big the file is). From there it will download. Press the windows button and R at the same time, or search “run” in the windows search. It will pop up a little thing and you type %appdata% Then, go into .minecraft/saves and extract the map and place it into the saves folder. If it doesn’t show up and you have the correct version, the files might be tossed around. To check if this is the case, if you don’t already have one, create a new world (creative or survival, doesn’t matter) and exit out and check out that folder and compare it to the custom map folder. If it swapped around for the custom map, change it to the order of the map you created within Minecraft. Then, it should show up. If not, some files may be missing and/or you don’t have the proper version
