MTR Crafters is a community project about recreating the entire Hong Kong MTR (Mass Transit Railway) system in the Minecraft game. Our community was created in September 2021 by many Minecraft and transit enthusiasts from all around the world.
We are building the entire Hong Kong MTR system network on a 1:1 scale, including all 97 stations and 10 lines. Also, we are building the entire Light Rail system operated by the MTR in the New Territories, which has its own 68 stops and 12 routes. When finished, there will be a total of 165 stations and more than 200 km of track!
Not only are we building every station and line of the MTR system, but we also want to make them look realistic and accurate. Thanks to the MTR (Minecraft Transit Railway) Mod, we are able to achieve something that is never possible before with only plain Vanilla Minecraft. The MTR Mod adds realistic trains and railway facilities such as platform screen doors, MTR signage and ticket machines. It also includes a sophisticated signalling system for making accurate train schedules. With all these features, we are able to recreate the entire MTR system realistically and accurately.
MTR Crafters is going to be an ongoing project. As new railway sections open in the MTR network in real life, we will continue to build new stations and lines. The MTR is one of the best railway systems in the world. We believe that by making a realistic and accurate replica of the MTR system in a game, we can let more people learn about and have a deeper knowledge of our MTR system. We also hope that we can bring meaningful gaming experiences to players and contribute to the transit and gaming communities.
So far, we have made impressive construction progress on major lines such as the Tuen Ma Line and Island Line, as well as the Light Rail. Looking forward, after we have recreated the entire MTR system in Minecraft, we will make the Minecraft map downloadable for everyone. We look forward to welcoming you to our community and together, we hope that one day, we will see the final product of our project!
We are a diverse team of people from many different places.
Centown Project, a famous Minecraft server, includes a sprawling city, Centown. It is known for its high-quality train stations and buildings.
The Minecraft MTR Server is the pioneer of Minecraft MTR. It inspires us the idea of creating the entire MTR system in Minecraft.
Minecraft Transit Railway is a mod that adds realistic trains and railway facilities to Minecraft. It is the backbone of our project.
MTR Crafters stations are built as realistically as possible. Much effort is put in to ensure every little detail is as accurate as possible.
We are recreating everything on a 1:1 scale, so there is no down-scaling of any kind!
