The NexGen Project- Lord of the Rings Map of Middle Earth!!!


With Weekly UPDATES!








Please Diamond, Favorite or Subscribe!




 

NexGen has started to make one of the biggest projects ever seen in Minecraft.


We are building Middle-Earth in a 1:2 scale. The map willl be added to the server to build and update soon. We have a ready able team building and designing based on Peter Jacksons movies and Tolkien's books. The project will include LOTR Dungeons, games, cities, towns, Wars and Special things hidden around based on the maps, pictures and character info.


The plan is to show how large Middle earth really is and to provide an RPG experience like no other.


When this project is completed it will stretch from the land of Lindon in the far west to Rhun in the far east and from Forodwaith in the top north to Harad/Unmbar in the bottom south.





Below is a list of things planned for the server


- A Race system including famous peoples such as the Elves, Dwarves, Uruk-hai, Goblins, Wizards and many others!


- We will have Towny where people can create their own towns and cities and wage war on the other races
  • - Loads of NPC's, quests, jobs you can complete to earn ingame currency and quest boards
  • - Magic commands for and mana bars for the Magic races
  • - Gambling machines ;D
  • - Special abilities for each race
  • - And loads more Lord of the Rings based stuff

Nice job! Very acurrate, the only I dont like, is the mountains. maybe use World Painter?
Edit Reply Delete
Thankyou Tripping, I did indeed use world painter for the mountains haha but I do admit they are really badly done!


After looking at your terrains I feel like I could do a lot better with a bit of practice. You have some really nice skills that I am very jealous of :)

Hey! Its a big project so I dont know the approx time it will be done. It will be released after I think there is enough to explore in the map and you are free to use it however you want providing you give me credit :)

why does the description say: Daily updates if it's not updating every day!?
Edit Reply Delete
Because they quit.

It will be updated daily due to school holidays but weekly after I go back to university :)

Hello, my IGN is diamondfinder98 I play on a small pole play server called Realm of Gwomath. Just a survival server with a plot line really and me and a couple people are looking for a map for a hobbit role play event, due to the hobbit movie. Thinking of this, if you would put the bare map up for download we would love you tenderly forever and ever -Diamond
Edit Reply Delete
The map will be available for download when i think there is enough to explore on the map :)
Edit Reply Delete
i guess you already know that worldpainter can't create middle earth in a 1:2 scale, since it can't support such big maps. so if you really think you can create a large middle earth map in worldpainter alone you're wrong. i just wanted to inform you.

btw why does this remind me of The Valar Projects old site?
Edit Reply Delete
Hence why im doing the map in parts then putting them on multiple worlds and likeing instance edges with portals so it feels like one large continuous world :)
Edit Reply Delete
sounds horrible then there will be portals all around the edge of a world? :C
Edit Reply Delete
not very accurate. have you read lord of the rings?
Edit Reply Delete
Yes i have and all i will say is, come talk to me when you have put all your time and effort into a Lord of the rings map with the exact geograpgical locations of each and every house, structure, unit, tree, stone, river, hill and flower. Doesnt sound so easy now does it?
Edit Reply Delete
im not saying its bad. just saying that its not the most accurate.
Edit Reply Delete
i agree with Pancake slayer this is proberbly the worst version of Middle earth ever seen. if Tolkien were reborn he would die again after he saw this.
Edit Reply Delete
true that

why don't you make a better one then? It obviously can't be to scale or exact, aside from the fact that that would take months or years to build an exact replica of middle earth, there are parts of middle earth that are not described in detail in the books and aren't even covered in the movies.

Edit Reply Delete
Are we talking about blocks or chunks here?
Even so both are way too small. I had this problem when i made the entire map 15k by 15k.
All the towns got clumped together and space for building was a problem.
Im now working on a 45k by 30k chunks of 128 map.

15K being 15,000 etc
