Minecraft Middle-Earth is a community that offers various services, completely free. I like that everyone can enjoy a great user experience by offering people that experience where you aren't forced into clicking ads, voting, getting lured to a Minecraft listing website where you have to vote for us, or 'paying to win' to get a higher rank or more permissions.
There is a policy which allows you to receive vanity items on our build server by donating:
- 50$ donated in total will get you an exclusive, personal horse.
- 20$ donated in total will get you a ribbon on the forum, showing you as a 'Donor'. You will also receive an in-game colored nickname over your head, called a 'tag'.
I keep a simplified bookkeeping, which is available here, so you can quickly see how much the project costs in terms of renting webspace, servers, software licenses, etc...
Being financially secure is important to the Minecraft Middle-Earth community, so we can keep what we have. Therefore, if you want to contribute, please make a voluntary donation by clicking on the link below. Thank you :)

Anfalas is finished! If you haven't taken the time to fly through it, you should! @kisos did a fabulous job, and I have to say Anfalas is very high on my list of favorite builds.
And with that, Keep Calm and Read the MCME Times (which, by the way, is from a British World War II propaganda poster, as I found out this week. Quite unexpected if I do say so myself).

Work on North Andrast has jumped like a 78 year old on steroids.Anfalas...
I've been working on the area around Ras Morthil
You thought you could get away from my writing that easily? Not so fast!
What a week! There is a ton of stuff that either happened or is currently happening on the server that should be reported. I will do my best to sum everything up in this edition of the Times without dragging on for several pages that nobody will surely read. I hope everyone is just as excited for the increased server progress and updates as I am.
As always, sit back and relax with your favorite morning beverage (OJ is good), and enjoy this week's issue of the MCME Times with Fire!

I am proud to announce the nickname sandrast i no longer fitting,...
From the very beginning of the server, we had to block access to certain blocks, items or features. In the old days this was called 'List of Forbidden Blocks', which were usable by everyone, there was no implementation doing any proper blocking or monitoring. Enforcers were then supposed to check player inventories, search people, houses, chests, anything that could hold items.
Soon after we started using WorldGuard's methods to make the server block certain items and things from happening, and Enforcers pretty much got unemployed in that aspect. However, each time there was an incident, the resolution usually meant adding more stuff to the WorldGuard list. (for example adding workbenches to prevent people from crafting - which would hopefully reduce the amount of people trying to gather materials). We've evolved much from that aspect and our methods of protection as well, which is why WorldGuard's restriction will be heavily reduced.
Before the situation was...
Our server just updated to 1.10
To see all the changes to the Minecraft game, you can view the:
Changes for MCME
- [!!]Chunk generation is now possible again due to a broken api. Please make sure that you do not venture too close to the border or build anything outside of it because these areas will be cut and removed frequently.
- VanishNoPacket is broken, we fall back to default Essentials vanish system.
- Plugins have been updated to handle the newest blocks and systems.
What is next
During the following weeks you will see more functionality and changes being made. One of the most anticipated is the release of The Architect, a plugin that will enable players to be more creative and make more changes. A development blog will be posted to highlight...
