See Update log for details
This project is my personal version of the Mines of Moria and is inspired by the original Godcraft server project. For more details on all of that, read the Start entry in the update log. The word chunk, when used in the log does not refer to the 16x16 chunks in Minecraft, but rather, it refers to a section of my project (a tile really) that is 25x25, 15x15, or some combination thereof, with the larger ones being empty floor, and the smaller ones being the columns. The project currently has semi-consistent help from Vashti, my fiance, MagicBULLET, my brother, and sometimes Hibbsi. Currently, there is no video for this project, though I may make one later when the project is more complete. There are several other projects that are located on the same server, though they are all simply started, and are awaiting the completion of this one.
As a note, this project is not designed to be accurate to the Lord of the Rings lore that it draws its name from, but is more designed to capture the feel of the massive columns and scale seen in the movie and artwork, with inspiration taken from my own thoughts. The server is open on a whitelist basis and the map will not be made available for download. Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments for this project and remember to watch the update log for the latest changes.
Additional NotesUpdated 9/28/2011:
Using Bukkit v935with Worldedit 4.6 for superpickaxe command in the excavation. All materials are gathered and forged, not given.
The remaining 20% of the project was completed with MCedit as the world that the project was created in is being retired.
Texture pack is Zar's Awesome Pack or the default textures.
Server is online and whitelisted. Check the link for more information. Posting whitelist requests here will result in me banning you on my server. Currently the whitelist is open for new applications.

Current work has moved to the right side and I am in the process of laying the groundwork. The entire right has had the lower perimeter cut and torched out, and the column guides have been started. In the process of making the guides, I have dug into several caves and more than doubled my store of diamonds from the bottoms of those caves. Currently, the caves simply have a small bridge across them for the floor level of the lines that were being cut, and said lines have few, if any, torches laid out. This will be changed when I remove the torches that are marking out the left side and finish resurfacing the walls and columns themselves. The digging will be fun for this right side since the bottom area is filled with caves, and there is a large section of the top area that is filled with sand. Anyway, expect great things by the end of the year. Current progress is ~32%

On another note, since the Excavation Storage Chamber was enlarged, I had a massive amount of ore that I smelted down to make 171 iron blocks and 23 gold blocks. Yes... that says blocks. I also have 1.5 double chests of coal, and nearly 300,000 cobblestone so far. Statistics are fun for everyone and I have about 6 full stacks of iron blocks that were gathered from the massive excavation that I have done so far. By my guess, I have cut out 15% of the space that needs to be removed, though it could be as high as 20-25%. Current progress is ~29%
