Issue #58 - 29 August 2022
Hello there! It is time to give you an update on what’s been going on in the community, and there is in fact quite a lot to catch up with, project-wise. So without further ado, let’s get to it.
We are still working on the first district where a part of the affluent middle-class resides. However, we’ve managed to complete the structures of numerous houses, leaving just a handful yet to be built. Furthermore, new city layouts are starting to appear in this quarter of the city. The third district, reserved for the working class and warehouses is seeing new streets and house layouts, as well as a new lower-class district. Both still being planned out, but you can see the progress in the picture above.

We’ve coloured the entire landscape around the town of Bree and started populating it with trees. The shapes of the forests are defined and going steadily. The tree designs are ready for placement, and the process of their plantation is already ongoing. On the subject of Bree itself, well following a recent build session, we’ve completed 17 new house exteriors. Meanwhile, more and more interiors are being slowly designed and completed. The town planning is nearing completion, with just a big stable and potentially a couple more hobbit holes left to be laid out.

No progress worth mentioning has been made lately.
Many new assets have been added to the assets warp (/warp assets). Many new trees gathered from around the server, but also some of Meowbeard’s trees from their tree repository (available here: Custom Object Repository - Trees, Mushrooms, Rocks, Bushes Minecraft Map). 4 new carts have also found home beside many dozens of older carts.
P.S: If you would like to access any asset at any time and if you lack permission, contact a staff member to add you to the assets plot!
You can now join the us with 1.19.2, but the actual server is still on 1.18.2.
Many plugins updated, but most of all, #fullcopy has been fixed for FAWE.
This week we’re taking a look at our art corner. Members of our community have been sharing a lot of their own work, varying from pictures of the plants they grew up to both digital and real paintings. Here are some examples of works:

The plan for the coming week(s) is to finish the forests around Bree and finish the first district in Osgiliath, before we can move on to a second district. One thing at a time!
