The red glow simply refers to the huge fissure of fire and death lighting the pillars. There is no glow produced by them and there is no worry about not getting enough light to cast on the pillars around it. Non-issue.

Alright I offered a prolonged time and so I also wont refuse it.
I will guarantee you time until Sunday 24:00 BST, after that I want to evaluate with Des. Ill try to catch him asap and plan a definite time when we are going to have a last look at the pillars.

A long expected party forum post
So the contest has ended and I and Despot would thank everyone a lot who has put so much time and effort into it. Many people have constantly asked me for feedback and I always gave some and you always followed it, thus we got multiple really really nice pillars. BUT we had to make a decision and settle for exactly one of them.

And the winner is...
You really wanna find out heh?

Nope not here.

Never give up searching!

I'd really like to see your face right now.

Considering that this seems to be the main project thread that doubled as a contest thread, it should be updated. Come on @Finrod_Amandil, follow your own goals:D

We have decided to put Moria on hold for the time being. It has always been the idea to start it as soon as Gondor, our main focus, is completely done, while we did not expect this to take as long as it is doing currently. For now there will be some more planning on how we can offer as much of the actual construction to everyone through jobs and freebuilds, and as soon as Gondor at last will come to an end, Moria will be the main project and will get the attention it deserves.

I believe @Despot666 knows about this already, but if we're mentioning texture bugs:
When you have connected textures enabled, upside-down slabs and stairs in 7 of 8 orientations have the normal texture. Right-side-up slabs and the remaining stair orientation, however, have a texture that works with the full blocks.

Ey @Finrod_Amandil Is there a possibility that the pillars that didn't win the contest could still be used in Moria? I mean there are dozens of halls and I'm sure some of them are good enough to be used in other parts. Maybe they would need some editting but I'm sure that can be done easily.

Is there a reason that this is listed as "On Hold" even though construction is clearly underway or did i miss some crucial piece to the puzzle? Sorry, new to MCME, trying to get acquainted.

moria is soon going to be underway soon, the work going on right now is sort of practice for the staff who are new to the style.
