~The MCME Times~ [11/02/18] Project Progress


Hardcore MCME-er

The Official MCME Times

The Month Of Change
Starting the month of February with a very grand edition of The Times. Read up and get to know what changes we have in store!

Editor's Note by BWOT

Well I didn’t have so much help on this edition as last week so sorry for the delay. However, I did have Finrod and Eriol contributing on some parts so thanks a lot to you guys. I would also like to thank Unicode who wrote a part as a trial editor and I would like to congratulate him to the Times team. Another group who I should thank is the photography team who did a superb job as always. We haven’t introduced any new sections, however go to the General Announcements sections and see what was discussed in the Staff Meeting and how it will affect you. Hope you enjoy!

There has also been an update to the server: Build server update Feb 11, 2018

~ Project Progress ~

Andrast - Lead: @jacenpeter | In Progress
Report by BWOT

A little bit of work near the cape has been done, however not much else.

Belfalas - Lead: @Darki | In Progress
Report by Eriol

Most terrain work in Belfalas is halted as I’m busy with the palace in Dol Amroth. @DarkTempliers66 is steadily smoothing terrain near Algodan. We need more smoothers, get a plot with Eriol and learn to become a top terrain smoother of MCME!

@Darki and @RubenPieterMark are working on trees (look at treebuild progress update) in preparation of the Belfalas vegetation project.

Dol Amroth - Lead: @Thijs1801 | In Progress
Report by BWOT

Royal Town is WIP but the end is near. Thanks for all the help from the amazing purple, light blue legions and the rest of the community. The Dol Amroth Theatre has been started and will hopefully be quickly built up so that New Town will be able to be re-started. Sewers have made no progress since last time and no progress on the farms has been seen. Eriol is continuing to work on the Palace.

Mordor Terrain - Lead: TBD | In Progress
Report by BWOT

Some small progress done by BWOT but not much as textures are in the making.

The Noman Lands and Dagorlad - Lead: @TBD | In Progress
Report by BWOT

No progress has been made these last two weeks.

Moria - Lead: @Despot | In Progress
Report by BWOT

Concepts for the Central Dwelling are near to completion however I (BWOT) want to finish Royal Town before starting and planning the build day at this massive sub-project, however with help from everyone it should be completed quickly. There has also been more work near the forge and then some more around Fire and Ivan’s halls. Besides that not much else.

Tolfalas- Lead: TBD | In Progress
Report by BWOT

No progress has been made these last two weeks.

Tree Build - Lead: @RubenPieterMark | In Progress
Report by BWOT

We finished some rows of firs and spruces (mainly worked on Nordmann fir, grand fir and Greek fir. I also finished the concepts for the Belfalas conifers. Lastly I revamped a couple of trees I did at the beginning of this project (some yews and junipers) and I added a few cypresses.

~ Texture Development ~
Report by Finrod

I am currently working very hard on merging the old Gondor pack (/rp g) and the new Gondor pack (/rp 2) together so that we can have one Gondor pack for entire Gondor. As there are a vast amount of differences between the packs and many challenges are contained within this merge the planning does take a fair bit of time, to make sure that it also works the way it's supposed to. If you want to learn more about this, please check out this post here: Gondor RP Update Thread [v2.4].

In order to not distract my focus too much I won’t be looking into the Mordor RP while working on this. As this change is needed to complete Gondor it has the priority. But I am making great progress and am looking forward to switch to the development of the Mordor RP right after finishing the merge.
