Gondor RP merge (Report by Eriol)

No progress here as I was too busy in real life, but I still hope to finish the merge before the next edition of the times. So let’s see...

32 RP
Gondor 32 rp has made no progress but the Mordor 32 rp is flying away as all textures for Mordor are being created first in 32.

Mordor RP
Almost all terrain blocks are allocated one 32 px texture, so that is really all that is needed to start Terrain in Mordor. From there we can create more textures for each block so it gives a more varied and interesting look.

~ Plug-in Development ~

Feature of the Week - Do you already know...

The Banner Editor?

Crafting banners can be quite exhausting. Using the Banner Editor you can get all possible banners much quicker.

A banner consists of up to 7 layers. The base layer has a color only but no texture. You can add up to 6 pattern layers with a texture and a color using command /banner add and then clicking at a banner with a stick in hand.

To change color and texture of a layer there are commands /banner color <id> and
/banner texture <id> where <id> is the number of the layer to change, the base layer has id 0.

A very nice feature is /banner shield click at a banner and you get a custom shield with the pattern from the banner on it. There are a lot more helpful command for changing, getting and storing banners. For full information read the Banner Editor Manual.

You probably know the banner of the King of Gondor (white tree with seven stars on black field) and the Prince of Dol Amroth (silver ship on blue field), maybe you even now the banner of the ruling Steward of Gondor (white without any charge). But what is the banner of the Lord of Rendul? Well do /warp Rendul, go to the castle and find out. If you want to use that banner yourself just do /banner get and click at one of the banners at the castle.
