~The MCME Times~ #32/16 - Valleys are Done!


Hardcore MCME-er

Opening Statement

The Valleys of Celos and Sirith are finished! The project was, in fact, finished just in time for @Fireinferno13 to kill his friends in the Summer Event Survival (coincidence?).

With that done, we've moved even closer to the completion of Gondor! YAY!

Other than that, it seems most people have been too busy playing survival, so there wasn't a whole lot of progress this week.​

What's Up?

Sorry for the lack of shaders - my computer now hates them and I get 2 fps:(

And if you can't see the album... it's an issue with all albums, as you probably can't see other ones either.

Project Progress

Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter

Jacen was gone for most of the week, so there was no progress on Andrast.​

Belfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Thijs1801

@Eriol_Eandur finished the Lostfalls terrain! Go see it ingame or look at the screenshots in the album!
Lamedon (In Progress) - Lead: @_Luk

Not much progress this week. Luk blames the survival.
Misty Mountains (In Progress) - Lead: @Finrod_Amandil

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

No progress this week.
Valleys of Celos and Sirith (Finished) - Lead: @Fireinferno13

Soon after completing last week's edition of the Times, we were able to finish the valleys project! Huge thanks to everyone who built houses for Tumladen and Ridgewood, along with the staff who helped with mountains and various terrain here and there. The villages and surrounding area turned out awesome (in my humble opinion) so people should fly around!

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

No progress this week.​

Plotbuild Plugin (Ready to Implement) - Devs: @Eriol_Eandur & @Ivan1pl

New New Player World (Ready to Implement) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur, Assistance: @_Luk

MCME-Architect and Minigames (Ready to Implement) - Dev: @Eriol_Eandur

Resource Packs
Mordor Pack (On Hold) - Lead: @bender400

Beets (Finished) - Creator: @Fireinferno13

As promised, I have finally finished the beets texture that I have been sorta kinda not really working on since this spring. They have been submitted and github and will hopefully be included in the next texture update as to remove those unsightly default ones.

Onions (New!) - Creator: @Fireinferno13

As per suggestions, I am working to retexture nether warts as onions. Currently they look a little too like the carrot textures so I will try to adjust such in my next update.

Mobs (In Progress) - Creator: @Fireinferno13

Last week I made a new orc mob texture that fits on the zombie slot. It is still a work in progress but be sure to leave feedback on the thread.

Rank Updates

Media of the Week

We had another rare double-posting of screenshots this week! @Tyranystrasz posted another of his fabulous renders this week, this one of Moria's West Gate:

And @Czokapik also posted some screens! My favorite has got to be this one of Bywater:


Themed Build
Looking at the poll, it looks like the next Themed Build will be Eldalondë!

Scheduled Events
Jobs & Plotbuilds

Scheduled Saturday Jobs seem to be suffering a bit from @Finrod_Amandil's extra time spent studying. But, if there are to be any jobs on Saturday, they will be announced in this thread. Be sure to ask Designers for jobs at any time, maybe they can offer something!​

Nic's Tours

No tours have been scheduled for the coming week. Keep an eye out on the thread for any announcements!
Community Outreach

Builder School (In Progress)

Several players have gotten together to rebuild and update @Will_em 's famous Builder School, which sought to teach new players how to build in the distinctive "MCME Style." We are all looking forward to how this will turn out!​

Facebook Page

@Fireinferno13 would like to know what YOU want to see on the MCME Facebook page. He would greatly appreciate if you would leave your feedback here or in THIS thread.​

Closing Statement

Well, school starts for me this week:( In my usual fashion, I went to find an XKCD to describe my situation - even though I'm not going to be in 11th grade, this one is pretty good:
