From the Realism Guide Post:
Hello all, this is the third public step in the Expansion Update. As usual there are a couple steps to this program but is quite straight-forward. The program is to allow anyone of the community that has skill in a specific topic or is an experienced builder to now write quickly an official Realism Guide. This program will follow simple guidelines to ensure uniformity and quality. You will submit the Realism Guide in the Realism Guide Inbox Thread. The Realism Guide will be reviewed and then if accepted by a Valar it will be distributed and used by the official MCME Builder Team.


What is a Realism Guide?
A Realism Guide is a simple, written guide on a specific topic, including pictures and text with reliable and cited sources on the topic. A more simple definition would be to; and educational document on a specific topic.

More information can be found on this post: ~Realism Guides~

Here is the format needed in the response to the Realism Guide Inbox:

Realism Guide Title: TITLE
Submitter: NAME
Google Link (read/view-only): LINK

If your Realism Guide is accepted the Valar will respond underneath accepted.
If your Realism Guide is used; your name and promotion will be recognized in the MCME Times and across the communities outlets.

Realism Guide Title: Gondorian Statues
Submitter: lolbroek108
Google Link:Google Docs - create and edit documents online, for free.
This is almost there, please fix the formatting to what is required and give me edit access as I would like to change some things. This is also a good medium/small statue guide but it certainly does not cover the vast topic on statues so I would like to change it as such that it will be one of a few. Good work

Realism Guide Title: Streets in medieval towns and cities
Submitter: reycraft
Google Link (read/view-only): Realism Guide: Streets in medieval towns and cities
Very good guide. Could add that there's a variation to the V shaped street with a 'ditch' in the middle: a U shaped street with 'ditches' on the sides. Sometimes there could be a sidewalk between the ditches and the houses. So for U shaped street:
house-(sidewalk)-ditch-rounded street which is highest in the middle-ditch-(sidewalk)-house
Btw it's an upside-down U.

I would add that, but i don't know how useful it could be in-game, since an in that case it would be impossible to build on the sides of the street and so the street would be really hard to decorate.

The sides of the street are just full blocks.
I forgot to add that the water should lead somewhere, so you can't have a market square surrounded by these roads; you'd need a drainage somewhere on the square.

Why did my realism guide become an empty document called WesterosCraft? @BWOT
I know the original version can be restored in google docs, but i'd like to know what happened to it.

hmm that's really strange, maybe it was put into another doc or folder but I can't find any other folders with it in... :confused:

I have no idea... I will have to check on that because that is really weird.

Due to school work taking priority my work on my interior design realism guide is going very slow but I'm still working on it.

Title: Countryside Roads
Submitter: Eriol_Eandur
Link: Countryside Roads
I once had to learn that country roads on a slope dug deeper under the ground because of the lack of vegetation which resulted into relatively more erosion (compared to the rest of the slope with vegetation), at geology years ago. Kind of like streams that also dig downwards. I tried to look up Wikipedia articles about it but I couldn't find anything.

Reading all this about roads made me think about it a bit and we have quite a lot of paved roads on MCME don't we? Not so many dirt or gravel roads and hardly any dirt paths that I can think of. Perhaps we could use the path-block for forest paths (like this http://www.ewallpapers.eu/sites/default/files/2002089629.jpg) in areas like Eriador and Ithilien that might be used by the rangers.

Ehm no the majority of roads are dirt, even in Gondor. But yes (almost?) all roads are strictly 3 wide, that's not good.

Side note @Eriol_Eandur what about cart roads? Roads used only by carts with grass growing in the middle.
