Summer Events 2017: The schedule

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

Be welcomed to the
Summer Events 2017
Alright, 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!

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...

Y'know Fin, without your helpful colour coding I would never have known that Hide and Seek was not a job. Thanks for that.

Just started back on the server, won't be able to do any weekday events though from my work schedule. Looking forward to catching up with any of you that have a vague recollection of me.

EDIT:
The RP's are now up-to-date and the new beds are included in the automatic and manual downloads.

For the automatic RPs
: Navigate to .minecraft/server-resource-packs and delete all files in that folder; the pack will not update otherwise, thinking you already have it downloaded.

For manual downloads: Download the packs from Official Resourcepacks | Minecraft Middle Earth and put the zipped files to .minecraft/resourcepacks

Please note that the schedule on the homepage of the website is incorrect. You must look at this thread to see the correct schedule. Also, events may change at short notice so please keep looking at the main post for updates.

I'll have to cancel my job today, I'm sorry. There's a lot of planning still to be done for the Build Day on sunday and I don't want to finish it by the last minute... Sorry for that!

Also yesterday Thijs and my job in DA was canceled due to the worldwide problem with Minecraft authentication server maintenance. So should we re-schedule.

If you find a date/time that suits you and is still free, sure!

In return, a quick teaser so that you know what I am working on right now and what I hope you all will be working on on Sunday!

I have bad news, I am afraid. The Central Dwelling is not ready for it yet; while I may have laid out almost enough for a build day, I have not yet gotten to developping a style for the houses, which is of course crucial. Now don't worry, I won't let you down! Instead we will go back to the site of the Chamber of Light and make sure we can finish that one of. In order to spice that up I will be hosting PVP whenever we made some good progress again! So be sure to tune in, the more people the better the progress and the more fun the PVP! I will surely be ready to start it from 9am BST as scheduled and I intend on continueing that throughout the day.

I know I missed the animation job but I'd kinda like to animate everything anyways so how would one go about it if they as an Artist wanted to animate everything even outside of jobs?

Survival is having some issues, the plugin that gives people 'spoofed' resources is not working, making it pretty much unplayable if we opt for the MCME map. Looking into it.

While I'm trying to get the survival going up on the mcme map, I replaced it for the moment with a default vanilla 1000x1000 map where you can gather the resources otherwise not available. When the problem is fixed, I'll create a portal at the middle of the map that will bring you to Middle-Earth prepared.

edit: ip adress is build.mcmiddleearth.com:55565 or survival.mcmiddleearth.com (though its likely the domain name wont work for most people yet - you can use the ip instead)

There is a faction plugin installed, commands start with /f

The Middle-Earth map is now available through the sphere in the middle of the map. Costum crafting plugin of last year is enabled, in which you can do a lot of costum stuff and even get an Elytra Summer Survival

yo are squid spawning disabled or something? I'm in desperate need of ink sacks (don't ask why) but haven't come across a single squid in hours of looking. If they're disabled perhaps add a custom recipe?

Also what happened to making a post about survival this year, seems people have to search the forums for last years post for the custom recipes, which is kind of an inconvenience.

yeah this is true, however I don't know if you know ealgz but Fin is on holiday however I think this should have been sorted out in the staff.
