Opening statement

Whats Up?

Project Progress


Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter

Terraformed the southern foothills/plains area just because I really wanted to get some quick, but seemingly large amount of progress in this week and that was the place to do it. Once that gets done I will either move to Ras Morthil and shape that area or continue working with the fjords.
- Jacenpeter
Anfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @kisos

The pain train continues in Anfalas with farms and terrain getting slapped into the "Done" column of my spreadsheet. @Daddlio 's farm is done courtesy of @Darki190. And @Wroxxite has finished his village, but will continue working in Anfalas on the salt flats. I knocked out a massive amount of terrain, finishing up the mountains and the rivers in the northern portion of Anfalas. Im pretty sure I voxeled for over 24 hours this weekend combined. Me and @Darki190 also ran a big road job, but there are still more roads to do. @NicTheFifth has started he elvish ruins. Me and @Darki190 are totally locked in to finish Anfalas within 2 weeks at this point.

Belfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Thijs1801

No progress this week.
Lamedon (In Progress) - Lead: @Eriol_Eandur

Eriol and Ryiw have been fixing small things throughout Lamedon this weeks, partly through jobs, partly on their own they improved rivers, trees, fields and probably even more things!
Misty Mountains (In Progress) - Lead: @Emilio_ (Eregion), @Finrod_Amandil (Misties), @Mandos (Gladden Fields)

No progress this week.
Tolfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz

Still improving and finding new ways to mold mountains.

I exported the world machine map into minecraft, it's just stone and grass and world machine editing it's just basic but I like the result, some screenshots here:
- Tyranystrasz
Valleys of Celos and Sirith (New) - Lead: @Fireinferno13

Progress has gone from 0-60mph in just a brief span of a week. The terrain for the town of Tumladen is complete and the project team is currently working to prepare all the necessary layouts and planning before opening jobs for the community which should be expected somewhat soon. Otherwise, voxel work continues on the nearby mountain ranges and will eventually move to the valley around the Celos river
- Fireinferno13
[Public Project] Fennas Drúnin (In Progress) - Lead: @thomasd16

The last few houses have been built, and also a more sinister item: A triple-gallows... Furthermore upon many a request from the Designers, they tweaked the proportions of the town's wall by making it a bit thinner.

Plugin Development
Animation Plugin (In Progress) - Dev: @Ivan1pl

A plugin to animate small parts of builds, mainly doors and gates.

No changes since last week.
Plotbuild Plugin (Testing in progress) - Devs: @Eriol_Eandur & @Ivan1pl

The Plotbuild Plugin will make it possible to make plots on the main map that can be claimed and be built on by anyone and then be easily reviewed and managed by staff.


No changes since last week.
New New Player World (Testing in progress) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur, Assistance: @_Luk

A new Intro Quiz for new players.

The new New Player World is currently being tested on the dev server, here's how it currently looks:
Minigames Plugin (Small fixes in progress) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur

A plugin to easily run various minigames like Hide and Seek, Races and Quizzes.

I am currently rereading the Hobbit to gain some more questions in that category. Other than that the plugin is already working like a charm, take away the graphical bugs there still are with special characters...
MCME-Architect (Testing in progress) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur

MCME-Architect is an assortment of small plugins of all kinds that make building on MCME easier and more enjoyable.

I can bring you, especially to the Artists though, the bright news of that most likely along with the release of the Architect plugin some changes will come regarding the block restrictions that we currently have. You hopefully will have unrestricted access to many of the currently locked blocks and hopefully will not have to rely on Designers voxelling in stuff any more.
Resource Packs
Mordor Pack (In Progress) - Lead: @bender400

Work on the pack continues. Notably @Ryiw has made a fantastic texture for gondor ruins/orc confiscated forts:
- bender400
New Stone Variants (all Packs) - Creators: @Tyranystrasz and @jacenpeter

Hobbit Door (Eriador Pack) - Creator: @Ryiw
Tower Window (Gondor Pack) - Creator: @Tyranystrasz
All these textures have now been added to Github and the packs have been prepared for an update which I hope happens very soon.
Edit: Packs have been updated!
Rank Updates
@NicTheFifth is back as Artist!​

Other news
Audiobook review

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, its Gandalf the White! It would have been interesting if Aragorn and Co. would have managed to kill who they mistook for Saruman :D. However finally we could leave Fangorn behind and move on over the plains of Rohan to its capital Edoras where we had a lovely meeting with our friend Gríma Wormtongue.

theres redstone_ore (ID 73) and lit_redstone_ore, natively it switches when you place it, place a block next to it or step on it and switches back after a few seconds. On MCME I simply put ID 73 on the no-physics list which suppresses any ID changes (same mechanic as piston heads or hanging torches).
In other words: No, it will behave like any other block. (Yes, I tested that before :p)

After its finished will you make a doc on how to use it?
There is a >Minigames Manual< in the resouces too.

I assume you'll fix "beeing" in the NNPW end message to be :)
-fixed-

Also, what happens if you get a question wrong?
Not sure what you mean.
When you answer one of the first 3 questions wrong, you'll be teleported back to start of the quiz.
When you answer one of the other questions wrong, you'll be teleported back to question 4.

I checked the Github changelog and then downloaded the RPs again and it is all there! The saplings you currently have in your initial post of the thread, potatoes, carrots and cup with icons. I initially thought you were rigth that they aren't there as I had updated my RP manually with only the very recent textures and therefore missed these, but it looks like everything is alright ;)
