    Goodday MCME,
    I have been back active on the server for some time now because i have some more time at the moment, and i have been exploring the current moria progress, and artists informed me that we intend to finish the entire main layer of moria this year, so i went around all of moria, and everything on the main layer of moria in the area we are currently building is mostly done, so if we want to continue with the main layer we have to go through the royal court(the big cave at the end of the kings way) this is an area that is not planned yet, so my question is to the moria staff, can we soon have a talk about where we want to go with the progress in moria, and what needs to be done

    Greetings
    Patrick

    Hey Patrick,

    That's the right spirit. :D

    Indeed there IS a plan for all of Moria. It's a huge wool model on staff world. I think Despot will go on as soon at the first part which is now almost done is really finished.

    I miss dedicated builders.


    Plan was, indeed, to finish current layer (bigger part of it) this year.

    I am not sure if this is possible anymore, mostly due dropping activity of staff (including mine).

    Long story short: we go in current layer up and finish levels above currently build level. After it we slowly start crawling and digging a one route west. After that/during that we finish also bottom levels of current level. In the end we will have something like this: all levels in middle layer of most eastern city + one single route from west to east.


    It will be hard to achieve it tho.

    Why don't you just do the fellowships path and expand Moria over time, it would give Guides something new to do and would allow other projects that have a higher amount of new player interest i.e. Mordor, and locations more important to the story of LOTR.

    I think the same as TI. I think it would be a good idea to build other things aswell and not just Moria, mainly because it's such a big project and I think that new players would rather see Rhovanion be built. 2 out of 3 players that join the server is almost always asking for Erebor and such. Why not finish the rest of the world and then finish Moria?

    We had this discussion before ;)

    It is indeed tempting to build the most famous first. Yes we would probably attract some more players if we do. But if we would cherry-pick all the most epic places to finish them first afterward motivation to build the less famous places drop a lot. Just imagine we would have finished all the epic places like Erebor and Barad-Dur and only tons of remote villages and forrest left to be built. We need highlights to look forward to build them and to get excited from time to time.

    Completely building one region with all highlights as well as the tendious everyday builds is much more sustainable for the community.

    Tbh not really. Part of the reason we were all so excited about Gondor way back was because of some of the ambiguity. A lot of lore is implicit rather than explicit, so it allows creative license. That being said, yes landmarks are a lot of fun. But doing the fellowships path through Moria first doesn't seem a bad idea. You would complete most of the truly lore necessary areas first and then have free reign to expand beyond that as people desire and see fit. Plus we could start doing moria speedruns again.

    Goodday,
    Now that i have been promoted as designer i am again more active in moria, and with the help of Some talented members like @Jesia, @Napoleon0605 and @barteldvn, halls or starting to pop up again, and we have already ran through the agrees halls, so the reason i am writing in the thread is mainly because we need leadership again in moria the halls are running out and i dont know where we are allowed to build, for this we especially need @Despot666 and @Credoo to plan new progress and prob start up a few of the langer projects up for example the waterworks,

    If you are looking for halls that are available, Despot previously said I could work on the following but I haven't had time:
    • If you warp to F2, these food storage halls need shelves and interiors before ruining (jobs?).
    • If you warp to F3, there are some barracks and military purpose halls if you continue through the tavern that can be claimed.

    I gave 11 new halls to Patrick, hopefully this will be enough for at least 2 days. I am extremely happy to see such progress in such short time. Hopefully I can update texture pack this weekend with some new fancy stuff, but no promises.
