Level 30 : Artisan Dragonborn
I've been working on a height map of Middle Earth which is based on the well known Tolkien map. My goal is to make the map match the coast lines, rivers, lakes and mountains but to also to visually match scenes from the movies. The landscape has been built so that all of the rivers flow correctly. The height map I've created exists as a 1 to 1 scale model which I can export out to any size. Currently with the minecraft 255 height limit the map is limited to 20471x20471. We have also created custom trees, rocks and bushes to populate to the world using WorldPainter. The current video show our current Rivendell location. The current on disk size of the world is 9.7Gb.

Need builders : 01/09/2014 2:36:06 pm1/09/14

If you are interested in working on DMEMC send me a private message. Please tell me why you are interested in working on DMEMC project and link me to some examples of works you have done. I will not be opening up the world until I can update it to 1.7.2.

Thanks

Server updated : 06/11/2013 11:16:09 pm6/11/13

I've updated the server to 1.5.2.

Update #31 : 05/24/2013 8:30:27 pm5/24/13

The server has been moved server to a new IP address.

Builders needed : 04/02/2013 12:03:49 am4/02/13

OK I am looking for a few good builders. If you are interested please tell me in a private message why you want to work on the DMEMC project, send me some links to your best works and tell me which Middle Earth locations you are interested in working on.

Lord of the Rings Mod : 04/01/2013 10:32:42 pm4/01/13

I've setup a forge server with the Lord of the Rings Mod. Here is a screen shot of the battle at Helmsdeep. --__jpg

World re-generation : 03/29/2013 6:47:33 pm3/29/13

I am currently working on adding new trees, brushes, and rock Eco-systems to the dmemc world. All of the trees, bushes and rocks extend under ground. For the trees and bushes this means that they have roots. I am also adding details seen in the Hobbit to the landscape. Once a stable version of bukkit server version 1.5.x is out I will make the new world available. I will post some updated images over then next week.

The storm is coming : 02/12/2013 10:37:57 pm2/12/13

War is coming to Middle Earth. Forces are gathering in the shadows...

I've had many requests for a PVP version of our server. What do you think about setting up a copy our Middle Earth Map as a Factions server? I would love to hear what you think about this idea. If there is enough interest I will work to get it setup.

Thanks
DMEMC

Lonely Mountain Mini-map : 02/10/2013 1:41:08 am2/10/13

I copied the chunks that contain the lonely mountain to a superflat world. To get to the Lonely Mount teleport to 3487 201 -6612. The map location can be found on the main project page.

Have fun and let the building begin.

Build a better Middle Earth contest : 02/09/2013 10:24:54 pm2/09/13

The first location to be used in the build a better Middle Earth contest will be the Lonely Mount. Check out the Digital Middle Earth project Minecraft Edition project page for details on the contest and how to download the schematic.

Thanks
DMEMC

Build contest : 02/09/2013 4:15:38 pm2/09/13

I've had numerous request to help build on the map. The problem I face is that I want to maintain a certain look and feel to the world as a whole. So I was thinking about making some of the locations available as a schematic so that people could build on it. For example Erebor, Bree, Hobbiton or Dol Guldur. Then people could work on them and submit them to me to put into my project page The schematic that has the highest rating would be put into the master Digital Middle Earth map and the author given credit. The only requirement is that the build sites need to match as close as possible to the movies scenes or descriptions from the books.

Let me know what you think of this idea.

Thanks
DMEMC

Lonely Mountain schematic : 02/09/2013 12:59:09 am2/09/13

The Lonely Mountain schematic is too large for most computers to import. Need to come up with a different method for making the locations available for people to work on.

Terraforming : 02/04/2013 1:02:33 am2/04/13

We have been working on some new objects for our world and will be re-generating the map. The map will have new trees, rocks, brushes, water pools, lava pools, ruins, and dungeons. We think these new objects and how they will be placed will really improve the visual look and feel of our Middle Earth world. Stay tuned

I've added a server and the link can be found here: Digital Middle Earth project Minecraft Edition Server

Thanks

Minas Morgul started : 01/29/2013 11:52:19 pm1/29/13

Update #17 : 01/26/2013 12:51:36 pm1/26/13

Made some major changes to Rivendell. The house of Elrond was moved and rotate to better match the scenes from the Fellowship of the Ring. I also started adding scene elements that were seen in the Hobbit. Check out the new photo's in the gallery. Also if anyone wants to walk around our Middle Earth map just send me a PM and I will startup the server.

Is there any possibility to get a schematic of the Argonaths? You've done an amazing job on them!

I'm not ready to give out the argonaths.  I'm working on programatically regenerating the world to support minecraft 1.7or higher.
At that point I might make the whole world available as a download.  Stay tuned.

We will be putting up a server at some point. The world file is currently 9.7GB so it is not an easy download. We will be making some of the locations available as schematics as we complete them. We have a test server that is online so if you want to explore send me a PM with your minecraft ID and I will add you to the whitelist and send you the server info.

For the entrance to Moria, is it going to be redstone or something? And any idea on how large the actual mine is going to be?

dmemc
Level 30
Artisan Dragonborn
January 8, 2013, 3:49 pm

Right now it is a hidden redstone door that activates and opens when you place a redstone torch in a certain location. Moria will be about 400 block wide, 1200 long and 160 deep. In some locations like the endless stairs it is 255 deep.
