Breaking Ground in Mordor

Hello everyone, I am just as excited as you in starting this journey of beginning hopefully the most advanced project on MCME. This is going to be a long road, and going to take some time to start up, however, I believe you all will thoroughly enjoy it. So, let me not hinder you any longer an get started.

So how are we going to go about this... well first: a surprise, then let's go through some of the things I know you all want to know, then lets end with the specifics and where we are going from here!

Now yes... that is Minas Morgul, yes... it is on our 1.13 server, yes... all ranked members can visit it and we will open it to the public as soon as we get some things straightened on the 1.13 server. This is a surprise from the Designer Team to you. Started by Thijs, then heavily worked on by me and...

January 5th 2019, 7:00 PM GMT

Everyone! It's time to discuss your issues and concerns again. Now we'll, of course, update you all on our ongoing projects and what you can expect in 2019 but I've been hearing lots of things lately and I feel like there is a need to discuss. As you might not already know most of the problems that arise in and around the community usually start from misunderstandings, so let's clear things up!

Mark the date: January 5th, 2019 7:00 PM GMT! I'm announcing this over a week in advance hoping that as many of you as possible will show up so don't let me down!

As always we have our lovely...

The Mordor Resource Pack
Greetings, this is your captain speaking. We are on an indirect Flight to Mordor. Our first stop will be Alpha, our second Beta and lastly we will arrive to our final destination. Of course inbetween those stops we will be serving three courses of: improvements, bug fixes, and additions. However, the majority of that we will get at each stop. We might experience some delays due to some severe issues with server moving to 1.13.

Okay, back to your lovely Head Builder: BWOT

Well, it is certainly an understatment to say it has been a while since any mention of the Mordor RP. But, after countless hours of hardwork we have been able to get somewhere. We are certainley far from finished, but what we have now we can only build on and improve. So here it the plan:

- Establishment of the structure
- Some textures done
- A majority fo textures in the work

MCME Year in Review 2018 Memory Submission

We need your help!

Hello Players of MCME. As you may know, last year I made a Year in Review video for MCME. And at the end of that video, I had a little segment for my favorite memories that I had experienced on the server during that year. This year, we want to open this segment up to you and have you submit your favorite MCME memories of 2018!

To submit a memory, just comment down below to this thread with the memory. It can be a screenshot of chat, a funny discord post, or whatever you want. I kindly ask that these memories be appropriate and don’t go against our Terms of Service. Everyone is welcome to submit a memory

Thanks :)

Badge Update
Mini Game/Guidebook
Mini Games Badge:

The Mini Games Badge is getting an update! You may have noticed that over the past month on MCME, the activity of the Guides has seriously decreased. Certainly new players haven't seen much Cyan on the server lately. This is entirely intentional as I retracted the Guide Monthly Requirements for the month of November as it is an intense time of studying for all of us. I know exam season continues into mid December for several Guides as well.
Anyways, in light of this lack of Guides, we've come to the democratic decision that Commoners should be allowed to apply for the Mini Games Badge so that new players across the spectrum of timezones can have more of a chance at something to do. That said, as stewards of this badge, we have very high standards for those who are even considered to hold this ability. So all...

Assistant/Lead Builder Merger

What? Another Rank Change???

That's right! The Valar held a meeting (Sunday, November 11th) wherein we discussed several topics. One of these topics was the current state of the Assistant and Lead Builder Ranks. As you all know, the ranks caused quite a bit of controversy this year as they are unprecedented in the traditional MCME Rank System. So, during the meeting, in an attempt to simplify the Build Team a bit (As per requested by several staff members) we analyzed the Assistants/Lead Builders and their role/niche on MCME.
We've came to the conclusion that:


1. The two ranks on the server have too few people to constitute an individual...

Minecraft 1.14 snapshot

This is the first of a new try-out series in which I'll introduce people the newest features that are being introduced in development versions for future Minecraft (snapshots).
Snapshots are released on a weekly basis by Mojang once they feel a major update is ready to be trickled into the community for testing.

1.14 is called the Village and Pillage update and will focus on more interaction with the villages and structures.

In regard to MCME, I will mostly stick to the most interesting features being introduced in the snapshots, while only making mention of the survival components.
