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 sited sources on the topic. A more simple definition would be to; and educational document on a specific topic.

Example of a Realism Guide:

Although this format is not correct, the balance of pictures and explanation is very well done in this excerpt from @RubenPieterMark 's short interior guide.

Another excerpt of good example:

How do I submit one?
In order to get a realism guide approved, create one in a google doc and then respond to the Realism Guide Inbox with the provided template and the google doc shared link (add only the view only link, the edit access link the Valar will request privately)

Follow this format inside the google document:

That is the required format you must comply with inside the google document.

With that given; here is the format needed in the response in 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.

Good luck and hope you participate!
