Founded in early May 2014, ArdaCraft seeks to recreate J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth in one of the largest and most detailed Minecraft maps ever created. We have a friendly community of skilled builders, and are always looking for new members!



All information can be found on our website, or on our thread in the PMC forums.



This is a modded Forge server, to connect you will need our launcher! The download for it can be found here.







Please refer to our Build Status document to see all complete, in progress, and non-started projects in Middle-earth.







Many thanks go to Monsterfish for allowing us to edit and redistribute his textures, as well as featuring us on his PMC page. Go download the Conquest pack!

Forlindon coming up soon! And with our new building system introduced with Harlond, progress is already speeding up a lot! Major progress is taking place underground in the Blue Mountains, and Mithlond's interiors went pretty fast last build day.

Don't worry about Finishing the west of Middle Earth, the areas we're currently in are the most densely populated areas in the west, most of Eriador is gonna be tiny villages, ruins, and 95% terrain, which will be at least 95% completed upon release thanks to Worldpainter. :)

Beyound AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a HUGE LOTR fan and this is just amazing!!!!!! Keep up the great work!
We saw your imgur-post which went literally viral in the last days. Our respect - we lift our heads. An awesome creation, in both realism and detail. It looks lovely ecspecially with the leaves-mod which makes the shire even more comfortable and wonderful. The Bree-houses architecture is also a big plus - they look amazing. Wondering how you did those insane renderings and screenshots without NASA-Specs... ;-) No trying to find your tp-version of Ravand...  Have a nice day!

I downloaded your launcher and logged in to see The Shire being built. Very interesting method of building and coordinating as well as marking territory and all the mod details all fit so well into the whole thing also. What an enormous team effort this must have taken!
Yea, our team at the moment is limited but we still progressed very quick overall in our opinion. Our dedication is real. :)
pretty sweet place if you ask me so do join :)

Troll caves will be added when we reach the Trollshaws and Ettenmoors.
The map is currently just the Shire and Breeland. With worldpainted sections to be added later.

The only reason that I am concerned is because I am from another LOTR server called The Valar Project, and in the past, some of our members have been banned from MCME simply because we also played on TVP, and we did not do anything bad or against the rules. Perhaps things have changed?
It's just a server, you can join up any server you want, no reason for a ban. At least not on our server that is.

I imagine so. Nobody has been banned for playing on both ArdaCraft and MCME, the only thing that is against the rules in that regard on MCME is advertising for other servers.

Dear Ardacraft Admins
I have seen your server and i really enjoyed the concept, i downloaded all the mods and resource packs too. But i have a problem, i am trying to create and acount in your website so i can applicate to become a builder, but for some reason i cant create an acount, i have tried with two different e-mails and checked my info correctly and i did not recieve any confirmation email ? Is there anything i can do ?
Thanks, Luc12

Well our forums are hosted by a forum hosting service called Enjin. There are many forums which use Enjin, and if you have an Enjin account you can use them all without having to create a new account. Therefore, if you're having problems creating an account to use our forums, it means you're having problems creating an Enjin account.

I am sorry to bother you again, but is there a way to apply to become a builder without needing a Enijin acount ?
  • ArdaCraft
  • Level 41
  • Master Network
  • April 18, 2015, 3:30 pm
I suppose, but to apply for any project requires a forum account. I would suggest troubleshooting on Enjin's website.

Here's a tutorial video in case you missed anything.

Make sure you use the latest Java 7, not Java 8. Java 8 seems to be incompatible with something we use. 

There has also been an update of the blockspack which you can find here:
