    Opening statement


    Welcome back to The Times! It has actually arrived from me because I have had help from the Guides! The Guide that has wrote the article has been mentioned before the article and I would like to give them all a massive thanks for helping me to write this.
    Project Progress

    Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter

    @mattlego has finished his terrain in Northern Andrast, which he has taken a great screenshot of. They have also been making some new textures for Andrast.
    Belfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Darki

    Almost all of the terrain in Belfalas has been smoothed now which means that there will be several jobs for digging streams on the way. @Daddlio has started to work on the area around the village of Ironmere where he, which the help of @Robz has made a wall around the village and have marked out farms.
    Dol Amroth (In Progress) - Lead: @Thijs1801

    Reporter: @Eldar_Telcontar

    Port Town is finally completed with @BWOT and the artists, commoners, and adventurers making the finishing touches this week. The quays of Port Town have been decorated and the streets and buildings too. @Patrick_0901 has been working on Upper Cliff Town with work there nearly at an end. Soon work will begin on the Lower Cliff Town, where fishing ships will start to fill up the docks there.
    Mordor Terrain (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz

    Fir and Tyran have both been voxeling terrain around Mordor on all sides of it, so it easy transitions from the terrain that was there to the terrain that was pasted in.
    Make Ithilien Great Again (In Progress) - Lead: @Fireinferno13

    Reporter: @awaywind

    @Fireinferno13 has been working diligently on Ithilien these past couple weeks. The transition between Ithilien and Mordor has been completed for the most part, and the southern border of Mordor has also been completed in the past couple of days. He now turns his gaze to the unfinished areas of terrain in the east of Mordor.

    “The transition between Ithilien and Mordor is once again pristine. Overall really happy with how the terrain turned out, as well as many of the new river sources (as led by @BWOT, @SmaugJuice, and @Napoleon0605).” - @Fireinferno13
    The Noman Lands an Dagorlad (In Progress) - Lead: @Fireinferno13
    Reporter: @awaywind

    After weeks of planning by @Eriol_Eandur and @Fireinferno13, progress is starting to move fast. The Dead Marshes have been moved to their new home, but work currently delayed until the arrival of textures. @mattlego has joined the project and is taking over adjusting terrain between the Dead Marshes and Emyn Muil. @_Luk has also joined and will design concepts for the Brown Lands this week.

    Moria (In Progress) - Lead: @Despot666

    Some new artists have ventured into Moria where more halls are being ruined and built. @Patrick_0901 and @thomasd18 have been running jobs there or adventures and commoners. If you would like more details about Moria please ask them because I have no idea what's being done there anymore.
    Tolfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz

    No progress.​

    Texture Development

    The Andrast team have been developing new textures for the terrain and wooded areas there. Here is a preview of the textures being made for Andrast: Screenshot

    Eriol and Finrod are also making new textures for Dol Amroth.

    Plugin Development


    Custom inventories / itemblocks (In progress) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur

    No progress that week for Eriol is waiting for the resource pack to update.
    Rank Updates

    Over the past couple of week, we have had many promotions to artist. Congratulations to @Merlinc01, @didi45, @QuantaCube, @Napoleon0605 and @lolbroek108 who have all achieved getting the promotion to Artist!

    We have also had two people getting promoted to a staff rank. Congratulations to @_Luk who has been re-promoted to Designer! We have also seen a new staff rank introduced this week. Congratulations to @mandolore100 who has been promoted to Head Guide!

    @DynoDaring used to be the Head Guide as well as the head Enforcer, but Dyno has passed the Head Guide section of his rank to @mandolore100. The Head Guide is in charge of the Guide rank, which means he has to promote and demote Guides, helps to organise events, and to take the lead in Guide tasks.​

    Media of the Week
    We have had several amazing screenshots this week, but my favourite is a picture of Kheled-Zaram taken by @Eriol_Eandur.

    Nice idea to let the Guides help with The Times (unless ofcourse they were already stressed out by their duties from being too few in which case it might have been a terrible idea but I'm not a Guide so I don't know ;)).

    Good idea to make guides like reporters, so when will we have TI giving us the One-minute news daily?

    It's been done in the past, and it was not terrible but conflicted with our schedules, workload, and real life...
