~ The MCME Times ~ [11/08/2021]

It’s Time to be Thankful!
Turkey is overrated btw

Editor's Note by Mapthor
Howdy do gamers, it’s your boy Mapthor back with another Editor’s Note. I’ll save the MCME updates for the sections below because I have to advertise something. As for today, November 7th, our Head Builder Bart has deleted the legendary Osgo tree. This is just a horrendous act and we cannot stand for it. I invite you to sign the petition made to bring back the tree from the endless void of World Edit. Other than that saddening news, the server’s been pretty silent publicly. Behind the scenes however, hooo boy is it a doozy. You’ll find out soon, don't worry :)

Happy Sailing,

~ Project Progress ~

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

Over the past two weeks, we have seen Pelennor past the 80% completion mark, with the last of the planning being laid out with the help of a job. The crossroads outside of the gate of Minas Tirith has been finished and one can now walk into Minas Tirith without walking over planning. The terrain near Harlond has been reshaped and w0rld helped to detail up a small cliff. Several homesteads have appeared across the Southern Section signaling the building of the farms in that section. In OsgoFields, the network of planned out wool-walls has been turned into cobble, with block mixing and detailing as well. The Fields are also seeing a new vegetation mix added to the long-ago smoothed terrain.


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

The secondary wall has been updated once again, progress will begin on gondorifying the military fort section of Cair Andros this week. Orruss has been working on a version of the Orvieto well in Italy which will be used to connect various sections of CA's underground. Cliff detailing has been resumed and job prep is still underway, hopefully terrain jobs will begin soon.


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

Lots of plots have been handed out the past two weeks. Interiors, exteriors and domes! We also have a nice blacksmith on the corner followed by a lovely bank and mint for castar making. Overall I am pleased with what we are doing over here and the project is moving in a great direction. The final main addition is the fort that Rwyland and Andrew worked on.


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

A huge amount of progress has been made in Lond Daer over the past two weeks. Lots of plots have been handed out and completed throughout the city. The Library and Temple in the inner city have been worked on while lots of houses have been completed and parts of the canals have also been worked on. The Sea Fort has also been built with the Northern Harbor seeing some more completion


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

Daom has been busy redesigning parts of lower West Gate with the addition of tunnel systems to make it feel more carved out and ruined. Overall he's happy with the progress he's making and hopes to eventually get that area back on the map soon.

~ Closing Statement ~

Another fortnight, another Edition. We’ll see you next time when it’s closer to turkey time!

Excellent work, Times Team!

Quote from Yoshitaka Mine
“Don’t you see? Humans by nature are selfish liars. No matter how many claim loyalty to the cause, they’ll all abandon ship sooner or later. Living through that reality made me wonder. Does friendship truly exist? Is loyalty just an unreachable ideal?”


The Official MCME Times
@HoverKing thanks for your efforts. I got you.

~ Lore of the Week ~
Today we will talk about a the lore for a very important question that many droogs ask every day: where is Gondor/where is Minas Tirith? Gondor is in Middle Earth and Minas Tirith is in Gondor. Now go look at a map and stop bothering us.

~ Question of the Week ~
What is Frodo's last name?
I believe Frodo's last name is Jean-Jacques. Also we appreciate the job you've been doing Hover.
I would like to make a suggestion.
Please make the media winners larger so that we can appreciate them!!

Unfortunately for this Edition, I found that when making them larger they became blurry and stretched because they're lower resolution.
