What is Minecraft Middle-Earth?

It is a creative online collaboration project, aiming to recreate the world imagined by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is available and freely accessible for everyone.

Through the use of Minecraft, we create a virtual world with minecraft blocks. We create and design our own buildings, textures, landscape, sound and music, and more.

We only are building the world, we are not a role-playing server, nor are we producing a videogame. We are simply making a huge world out of Minecraft Blocks, in a creative Minecraft environment. Just building.

Hi! Its been a year since I logged on, and Ive changed my username. Am I still whitelisted on the server?

The whitelist has been replaced by a quiz system. If you were part of the people who worked on the new world, you won't have to do anything. If you were not, you will just have to do the quiz in the newplayeworld which takes about 10 minutes maximum.

Namechanges are done automatically.

Will the resource packs work with Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, version 1.0.2?

Not currently no. The current version of Minecraft Windows 10 Edition does not support user generated texture packs, and have to be released by Mojang themselves.

What language can I speak on the server?

We prefer that users use English on the server but you are free to use personal languages in private conversations through /msg

do you have to save your theme build so it will be there the next time you play

No. It remains there and you can go back to work on it more at a later date

what is the server address

The server IP address is build.mcmiddleearth.com

What Minecraft Version or Modpack should i use?

Our server does not use a Modpack but you can use mods such as optifine or minimaps. The server usually uses the latest version of Minecraft.

What's the server I.P?


Sorry again but the server is saying that its in an "Invalid session"

This means that you need to restart your game.

How do I get on the server?

A list of all the official servers can be found within this resource posted here. To make things easier for you, this is a quick overview:
Build Server: build.mcmiddleearth.com
This is where the world of Middle Earth is being built. It is a protected world, as such you can't just start to build anywhere you want. Our Designers have the ability to start Jobs in which you can participate. During these Jobs, the Designer can make some areas buildable for everyone.
You need to read both the FAQ and the Terms of Service in order to pass the New Player World upon joining.

Can I download the map?

No, you can't. Downloading the map is prohibited, and punishable with a permanent ban.

When was the server started?

The server was started on October 10, 2010 by q220.

What areas are currently finished?

You can check this document to know the build status of the areas on the server.

Why does the server look weird?

Our server uses resource packs. These should be automatically prompted based on location. This is a setting in your video options.
If this does not work for you, you can get our resource packs here. This guide will help you with installation.

How do you make the map?

We used WorldPainter to shape the map and do the basic terrain. Then in game we use VoxelSniper, WorldEdit and manual work.

What will happen after the map is finished?

We are always revamping locations, so to actually finish would take quite a long time. Once Middle-earth is finished, we might attempt the surrounding lands, or try to make a roleplaying server out of it.

What is TeamSpeak? Do I really need to have it?

TeamSpeak is a third-party application MCME players use to talk using microphones and text chat. Designers run Jobs and Guides run tours using TeamSpeak, so it is very important to have it. You don’t have to talk if you don’t want to, you can just listen and respond using chat. Learn how to install and setup TeamSpeak here.
