Q did some stuff this week, including announcing a change to https for the forums and updating PVP to 1.10.2! (now @Kulmo can play). Other than that, things on the server have seemed pretty quiet this week, just as Bilbo would want them. That doesn't mean there was no progress though - read on to learn about it!
Also, I've been including fanfictions in the Times for a few weeks and I'd like to know what you think of them. Please respond to the poll or post below!
Aaanndd for the 3rd thing, the Durin's Day Summer Events were announced this week! Have a look at this thread for information!
Sunday, November 22, 2015
Hello! Another week, another Times, and this time it’s time to time the Times. What does that mean, you may ask? I don’t know.
I would like to draw attention to this thread, not in an attempt to continue its argument here, but merely to praise and commend @Lady_of_Rohan for finding a relevant issue and decisively act upon it. (P.S. this is the author’s position, not that of the Times or the server)
As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, we are pushing donation again, with pop-ups and banners and the like. It is not really the duty of the Times to proselytize MCME, and no doubt many of you, like myself, do not have the financial independence to donate, but please keep a thought about it.
BREAKING NEWS: Prepare to see Middle-earth like never before, the moment you have all been waiting for, MCME SURVIVAL SERVER! Everything is fair game! Join up with a group of buddies and prepare to destroy Orthanc for diamonds, dig a secret base in the middle of Edoras, nuke the Brandywine Bridge just because you crafted a ton of TNT, and kill staff members (wait what)! It is perhaps the most anticipated event of the summer so be sure to join. See more information below!
In other news, while the rest of the world, as well as many of you, has been celebrating the Rio Olympics, many of you have had the great time of participating in the summer event! I hope everyone has had time in their busy schedules to attend at least one event this past week. If not, be sure to check out the events being put on by our amazing staff and guides during the rest of the week...

Hello everyone. Another week has passed, December is very close, magic is in the air, time for family meetings, lights, music and wishes. We are all looking forward to the holidays.
This week we also decided that it’s time to introduce something new -- more information below! So what are you waiting for? Start reading the Times!
@BurgundyStig has left the Times Team, but thankfully he will continue fulfill his position as Guide.
There was also an update to the Rohan resource pack! Find it under Resources!
I had a lot of assistance with pictures this week, but for some reason imgur wasn’t taking the links from our media, so here are more pictures separate from the album:...
You all, especially the younger ones among you, know the ever present stereotype of the lazy gamer doing "nothing" all day long. Many of you know the situation that five minutes after you turned on your PC (or whatever device it shall be) you already get blamed by someone to be doing it for hours already. I can't straightly deny the stereotype as I guess there are many out there on which it may fit, but for your all easing I can tell you that with chosing MCME as one of your games to play you definitely made no bad choice in terms of whether your virtual activities are now useless or not. Once you get a bit into it there is so much knowledge and brainwork that flows into such a project that you can indeed profit from it, therefore, even if you have never been confronted by the task to plan something, try to get into the projects and try to reveal the thoughts that were put into it, e.g. what real life...
~ General Announcements ~A new way to promote Artists!
In the past few weeks, there has been some discussion about the Artist promotion process. There was also a poll on the public and staff forums.
Most agreed that there should be a committee of Designers to review Artist applications and decide about promotions. This committee will meet every two weeks beginning this weekend. For now there are @BWOT, @Darki and @Eriol_Eandur but this is not fixed and other Designers may join. All Designers and Formen are asked to put their observations about Artist applicants into a spreadsheet to help the committee.
Royal Town build day for Artist+!
“To all Artists, Foreman and Designers ...
Dol Amroth Royal Town is calling you. We are having a build day (today) Sunday, January 28th. I actually hope to finish all of Royal Town buildings today. If we all pause the...
Today the idea was brought up the bring the "meet the staff" section back once more to the Times, but as both I wanted something more innovative aswell as seconds after that suggestion "meet the artist" was brought up aswell and Trex urged not to forget about the poor droogs I got something new: #WeAreMCME; probably bit a sketchy title, but you will have to deal with it. The concept is really simple: I made a google form with a few questions in it where everyone can fill in his answers. The submissions with the most funny / entertaining answers will get featured in the Times, completely irrelevant of the rank.
Here's the google form: MCME Times survey
Everyone is more than welcome to submit! I also very gladly take new questions that may generate interesting or fun answers, please send me those via PM.
This week we have seen the continuation of on hold projects and not so much progress in other places. We have also had progress going on behind the scenes to help get the server updated to 1.12. This week I have also included something that was brought up in the public meeting.Project Progress

So as you may have discovered some of the past issues of the MCME Times have turned out a bit meagre in content. This may have been to some extent because of lack of available material (aka nothing significant has happened that week) or lack of time on my side, respectively me deciding a release at least as close to sunday as possible is better than a bit more content. Now for this week I really wanted to make again an issue stuffed with more... stuff. And things. An issue with more stuff and things! Are you already excited what the stuff and the things are? Yeah, sure you are, so read on already!
Breaking News: Unlight the Beacons!?
Today @Mandos approached me with that at the time our server is set the...

The Official MCME Times
The Month Of Change
Starting the month of February with a very grand edition of The Times. Read up and get to know what changes we have in store!
Well I didn’t have so much help on this edition as last week so sorry for the delay. However, I did have Finrod and...
<01:07:25> "Kulmo(Laptop)": this is like
<01:07:31> "Kulmo(Laptop)": the old staff meetings
<01:07:38> "Kulmo(Laptop)": that go on for years
On the night from saturday to sunday we had our second staff meeting in 2015 and it was indeed really extensive, for almost three hours it lasted. We talked about a lot of things, e.g. project progress and potential issues with them, how to make ourselves known to new people outside of MCME and what media we can use how to achieve that, we talked about the PVP Rebirth that is being worked on atm and how that shall be used when it's done, aswell as some rank-related topics and some things that yet have to be announced to all of you!
On behalf of that I want to encourage you to voice any concerns or suggestions you may have concerning any topic. There are plenty of places you can put your inputs, whether that is the public suggestions forums or...
Be welcomed to theAlright, finally it is here, the full schedule for the Summer Events 2017! As announced in the Times these year's Summer Events will be very much focussed on making great progress once again on the various projects and beyond! Let the server awake and show how much of a change we can make even in a short time!
Summer Events 2017
As a bit a special kind of job we'll be replacing the Beds all over the map with the newly available ones. If you've ever wanted a relaxing and easy job like we had it often many years ago, these are your chances to hang out with the others, have a chat and a fun time! But of course that's only a small part of it all, be sure to tune in way more than once, there's surely something to enjoy for everyone! And most importantly: The more people join, the more fun it is...
Legend: Red: Highlights!, Green: Non-building events,...
Finally again a week where there's not a ton of progress on every single project; for once that is quite good I think ;-) So matching to that, this intro too shall stay short, the real deal of the Times you will find, as always, below!
Have a nice sunday and enjoy your week!
Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz
Only small bit of progress in Andrast this week: The fortress of Ras Morthil has begun construction and the first few buildings on and in the rock spikes there have been built.
Anfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @otho
Another few small tweaks to the terrain could be observed, but else the voxel wrath has calmed down there this week....
Hello and Welcome to the second installment of the ever popular MCME Times after the Reboot. The first part is always better. Jokes asides, we have a lot of topics to tackle today so let's get right into it. I hope you can overlook my obvious writing stupidity in the process.
To start things off The Dol Amroth Building Team is proud to announce the Dol Amroth Build Day, taking place on the 8th and 9th of April. Through it we want to get Dol Amroth up and running to create something we have never seen before on the server. Which directly leads us to the second topic. Yes, these are a hell lot of new textures. If you have not tried it yourself yet, or simply did not notice, get your hand on the newly designed Gondor Resource Pack and Plugin! It provides us with (insert number here) new Blocks and Objects to use. And all without a single Mod being installed. A...
EVERYBODY STOP! Stop what you're doing right now. Ask yourself "am I a decent texturer? Do I want to help make some textures?", if the answer is yes then I want you to go to this. Seriously, I need every capable person to help make gondor textures great again! If you're already an experienced texturer, or interested in starting out and think you've got what it takes, please help out! The quicker we get these textures finished, the quicker we can start building.
Anyway, welcome back to this weeks edition of the MCME Times! I will be your host for this christmas, as Mr. Fin is busy working away on his long to-do-list, he will be back again to join you as the host at around new years, in a few weeks! That's right, you'll all...
Build server is now running the latest 1.11 version.
The resourcepacks have been updated to be compatible with 1.11 clients as well.
For a full changelog of Mojang, you can see the page at 1.11 – Official Minecraft Wiki
Short list of interesting changes:
- New particles for lama spit and undying totem.
- Block and itemids no longer case sensitive.
- Chat can now be 256 characters long instead of 100
- /title can now display stuff in the actionbar too.
Yep, it has happened. This week for the first time there was no chance to include everything I want to have in these Times in one post, in fact this first post has already 20'000 characters on its own. The two main sections of this week are an in-depth rundown of the Easter Egg Hunt, and a lot of updates on the Plugins that are being developed currently. So take yourself some time for these Times, but enjoy them even more
Easter Egg Hunt 2016 - Winners & Solutions
I think most of you would agree on that this year's Easter Egg Hunt was pretty tricky to complete. Therefore I call everyone that completed it a winner of the MCME Easter Egg Hunt 2016. Here is everyone that messaged me the unscrambled names, in chronological...
The Official MCME Times
End of January
Wrapping up January with this edition of The Times. Can’t wait to see what February has in store for the server!
Editor's Note by BWOT
A lot of changes have occurred in the last two weeks... One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the hard work of the Times...
This week I'm gonna do something special for once; I'll be going with less words, and instead more images. For the project updates it shall be said that the images mostly cover progress over the past couple week, not specifically over the last week.
With that said, have a nice read, or rather, a nice look!
Yay finally an MCME Times again! As a general announcement I would say that tendencially I am rather going to continue with less editions (towards one edition every two weeks), and instead make it proper and add some extra content bits if I find any. That will prevent the quality from decreasing, and leave me with a little more time to work on other things!
Currently we're experiencing a minor bug with the warp plugin, which prevents you from entering warp names that consist of multiple words the way you used to do it. Luckily @Emiel1000111 and @lw_spartan have found a fix to circumvent this bug until it's fixed: Simply put the warp name between single quotes, i.e. /warp 'minas tirith'
On the merrier side, it is now again possible to warp between worlds without having to issue /mvtp before!
And now, have a nice read; I'd say there's quite a...
