~ The MCME Times ~ [10/24/2021]

A Storm is Approaching!
Winter Events are officially in development!

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Hello again and welcome back to another edition of The MCME Times. After the anniversary, the past two weeks have been somewhat quiet. However, there is a lot of planning going on behind the scenes and you’ll all find out soon enough. God, Black Friday can’t come any faster :p. Anyways, keep an eye out for upcoming events, jobs, and maybe even a little info on the Winter Events. Who knows, Soarz is a mysterious person.

Happy Sailing,

Anorien - Lead: @draonic_slayer | In Progress
Report by Draonic_Slayer

Yet another 2 weeks of great progress in Anorien. w0rld and his helpers have finally finished creating all the tree variants I need, from small to large, from thin to thick, and this will hopefully allow me to start getting underway with some nice forest concepts. For the freshly dubbed, OsgoFields, AVeryAngryBadger has gotten down to adding a nice network of ruined walls in the section just outside Pelennor and Osgiliath. Both HyprNinja and Rudolphius have also helped by running practice jobs on the area. P.S don’t forget to go visit the Osgo Seals. For the Pelennor more fields have been filled out, and even more planned out. Work in the Watchtower village is going smoothly with several houses being built outside of the village.


Cair Andros – Lead: @Andrewpioneer | In Progress
Report by Andrewpioneer

Both bridges have been added to main world and terrain integration will be starting soon. The secondary wall of Cair Andros is mostly finished, pending some minor changes and awaiting finer details. Work on one of the bridge forts has now begun and will be receiving revisions next week. Tree plots for the island have continued and the tree repository is close to being finished. Military camp concept development has also begun, focusing on realistic camp layout and design. We have also begun developing new siege engine concepts with the newly added beam and railing blocks.


Harlond – Lead: @Mershy | In Progress
Report by Mershy

Progress has in fact continued these past two weeks. I am finally happy with the look of the northern dock facades and will continue those into next week. 2nah and Itai are working on some concepts regarding the military area that we have, feedback has been given to lots of people so houses are starting to finish up as well. Finally, Rwyland has been creating concepts for the fishing area on the eastern side of the town.


Lond Daer – Lead: @mattlego | In Progress
Report by mattlego

The palace is getting very close to being finished with just some small parts remaining. I am planning on handing out some more plots very soon.


Moria – Lead: @DoctorDaom | In Progress
Report by Mershy

Orruss has delved his way into the depths and will support Daom in his endeavours of getting lower West Gate finished. Jona continues to still make concepts and plans for the upper West Gate and Daom has created the deepest window in Moria.

~ Rank Updates ~
Report by givet10

ooitsbirdo: I have good news and bad news: we have a new Artist, but it's birdo, who resigned from Designer to the purple Builder rank. All jokes aside, birdo has been a great Designer, that has shown he's more than capable of leading projects and building stuff here and there. He'll have more time to focus on his real life, while still being able to help build. Hopefully we will see his name in green again in the future tho.



~ Winners of “The Week” ~

This week we have another round of amazing builds and Media posts. We only choose from the best every time, so hard work does pay off. Sometimes it can get competitive and that is what will win a place here. Please give a warm welcome to this Times' Winners of this Week.

Media Winners:

Another edition where I have a lot to say about the shots I picked and yet don't have time to say anything! This time, my excuses are more Video Team work, coding work, and script-writing work. And that's just MCME stuff. I'm also unpacking from a vacation that ended the day before writing this, so if you want to complain about the lack of captions, I'm sure I can schedule an appointment sometime in December. Enough justifying my actions, then. Here are the Media Winners of the past three weeks!

~ Question of the Week ~

The Lore and Question is delayed yet again- Hover is a busy man! In the meantime, have a picture of Soarz with his Soarbeez.

Last Week's Riddle:
Alive as you but without breath,
As cold in my life as in my death;
Never a thirst though I always drink,
Dressed in a mail but never a clink.

Correct Answer: HyprNinja answered correctly- it's a fish!

~ Closing Statement ~

You know something is about to go down when two people apply for the same rank at once. But you know what? That’s where the fun begins!

Excellent work, Times Team!

Golly, that's so true.
Liking Nostalgia shaders used for the Times article shots. Might turn that shadow resolution up a bit, though.
The picture of Soarz was a surprise. But a welcome one.
