“Builders are once again allowed to work on Osgiliath, althought there has not been too much builder activity. Tobberz has been working further to plan the workshops and warehouses near the docks. The palace-type building in District 1 has now been finished (exterior-wise).”
“There has been significant progress on Setton, with 95 jobs completed in the span of two weeks. We are approaching the completion of half of the fields, and we started working on a few farms. We have improved some parts of the terrain and added grass. The forests continue to be worked on. We have finally textured the roads and paths, and I started decorating the streets with crates, plants and props. The Lemon Seagull inn has been completed, as well as two barns. A couple more interiors have been started.”

“the_pharaohs_cat has perfected my design for the outer palisade which I am now working on implementing. The rough plan is effectively complete, but I’ll need to work with said Lead Builder to finalise the house design with regards to the inner Fortress.”
The Powers That Be didn’t give me much for this section this time round, so I thought I’d talk about the Resource Pack situation. Tobberz split the Eriador pack off from the Rohan pack, and made some changes regarding which textures go in which pack. Meanwhile I have been experimenting around with a few new textures, for instance a blue coloured shutter for Eriador & Gondor, as well as some new stone textures. Me and @the_pharaohs_cat both have the “Deputy Texturer” rank now to help the Lead Texturer who is @Tobberz. None of the changes are public yet, but hopefully Tobberz will help out in the last part, finalise the changes, release the pack, and make public the update log!
There’s also no Tech Corner this week as according to @StealWonders, nothing has happened. Despite this, stuff has actually happened: there is now an in-development “Job GUI” you get when you type /job list!
/job listcommand for a list of jobs that can be claimed - the instructions regarding claiming, teleporting, etc. are quite obvious in the GUI. Don’t forget to do
/job done [job]when you finish one!
This fortnight’s featured creation is @the_pharaohs_cat’s beautiful romanesque villa in Osgiliath. I’m not sure what it is going to be used for, but it looks grand!
This was enjoyable, it gives me a good excuse to explore the server and take some fun screenshots! See you next-time… whenever that is. <3
What were the three Houses of the Edain?
Answer to the previous quiz:
Q: What did the Valar do in response to the Númenóreans invading Valinor under the leadership of Ar-Pharazôn?
A: Eru absolutely went ham, he destroyed Númenór and changed the whole world so that it became a sphere (it used to be flat), removing Valinor from this temporal plain.
