    Opening statement

    Since our lovely Finrod has been busy with some IRL stuff, I've opted to do this weeks Times myself. Things should be back to normal in the Times office next week, when Fin (hopefully) finds some more time.

    But for now, sit down, relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this weeks probably first ever morning edition of the Times! (Yes, my timezone is really that bad).
    Whats Up?




    Project Progress

    Dol Amroth (In Progress) - Lead: @Eaglz24

    After an extremely long time of discussing, planning, and discussing some more, I present to you guys the new Dol Amroth Revamp! Many of you might have already been suspecting some suspicious activity (ie. a map in dynmap) but now it's time to spoil the beans and release the project.

    You guys can check out the Project Post here: Dol Amroth

    As for an update of what we have already done thus far, myself Luk and Beat have been copying the old Dol Amroth to staff (for those who are wondering why the server has been lagging so much). It's a long and daunting task of copying each chunk at a time, and most likely will take a few more hours, but the light at the end of the tunnel is we get to nuke the Dol Amroth once we're done :D

    Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter

    Belfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Thijs1801

    There has been progress once more after a few quite weeks around Belfalas. Some Artists have been working away on a beautiful little farming area to the south of Lostfalls. Other than that Eriol has been working away on some more hills to the north.
    Lamedon (In Progress) - Lead: @_Luk

    The town of Smailholm has been completed! The final result is an absolute beauty, check it out at /warp smailholm

    Other than that, not much progress in Lamedon this week.

    MORIA (In Progress) - Lead: @Despot666 & @Finrod_Amandil

    Not too much progress that Despot knows of other than some smaller things. Moria is still relatively unstable progress wise, but as time goes on we should see Moria get more attention.

    Oh, and CoL has gotten a little progress, mainly just laying out houses by @Beathaven

    Tolfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Tyranystrasz

    None this week.
    Valley of Erui (In Progress) - Lead: @Mandos

    Some more progress here as well, with some nice little farms popping up here and there by Artists. And some small terrain revamps and new rivers by the Doomsman.
    Texture Development

    Nothing really new here, other than @Eriol_Eandur experimenting with some blockstate things.

    Plugin Development

    Animation Plugin (In Progress) - Dev: @Ivan1pl

    None this week.
    Plotbuild, Architect & Minigames (Implemented) - Devs: @Eriol_Eandur & @Ivan1pl

    Eriol is still working on things related with blockstates. The potential there is huge, a final count of Eriol for the Gondor pack yielded a stunning 476 unused blockstates. Some come with some restrictions, but a large amount of these are possible to make into usable blocks!

    Rank Updates

    A warm welcome to the rank of Designer for @Beathaven! Well deserved after a lot of great work and skill, welcome to the team!
    Media of the week

    Some breathtaking screenshots made by @Despot666 using the high resolution MCME resource packs, check em' out!



    Community Outreach

    @NicTheFifth has been working on a Corrupted Isengard map on the PvP server! If you are interested in helping him out, notify him!
    Themed Build
    Themed Builds are weekly build events that serve to show off your building skills and/or help you to gain the skills required to get promoted to the Artist rank! All instructions on how to participate can be found in the thread linked below.

    (Same as in last weeks Times)

    Theme: Wellinghall (The home of Treebeard)
    Resource Pack: Rohan
    Link: #35/16 - Wellinghall

    Closing statement

    All in all, this has been a pretty standard week aside from the new Dol Amroth project. I don't really have anything else to say and I'm really hungry so i'll leave it at that. Thanks for tuning in and have a good rest of your week folks!

    So to clarify, no new theme build this week, just adding one more week to the Wellinghall one?

    Edit: Seems there is a new theme build: #36/16 - House of the Stewards
