We are currently looking for some underground building designs, that would fit into the forgotten hall. We are looking for mainly ruins and buildings that can be sculpted into the wall. If you have any designs or ideas leave a comment with links to pictures of them, or send me a message.


21st hall is pretty much complete, we just need to go back and add some last minute changes.


Just a few screen shots of what it will look like.

While you are there, look for marker signs for a self guided tour. They are most commonly placed at borders of major sections (entrances to main hall for example, hard to miss them if you stop staring at the epic.)

You have not seen all that Moria has to offer until you've seen the following locations:

Main Hall
Residential District
Iron Hall
Storage
Balrog Hall
Forgotten Hall (Just needs buildings)
7th Hall (Complete)
21st Hall (Final Touches)

So quick question if you guys are still reading these comments. I saw that there wsa an updated version of the map at one point on your forum but required signing up which has been disabled. Is there any possibility of being able to get that version still or updating this project with it?

Many apologies guys, I am not sure how I missed posting here and providing credits for this wonderful build but that has been fixed as of this moment. You have done an amazing job with this build and you deserve all of the credit for it!
If anyone wanted to be apart of the making of this moria, youre in luck. I, along with Bagline and others, are remaking Moria on the Stone Legion server. If woud like to help, here is the project thread:

This is probably my second favorite build ever. This is actually what got me interested in minecraft. And everyone who complains it doesn't exactly fit into the lotr description should build their own.

They can just go look at the MCME version which is far more accurate to the book description.

The main selling point of our project is that it was done by hand in survival on peaceful.

Also, glad to hear you like it. =)
Hi. I downloaded the map and installed it to minecraft. I spawned in the middle of nowhere and i can't find The mines of Moria. Can you help me?
  • Bagline

  • August 17, 2013, 7:53 pm
If it didn't say "converting map" when you loaded it the first time, then you installed it in the wrong folder.

If it DID have to convert the map, then you'll need to make your way to about -4456 +3570 (south west) The spawn should be moved to that area, but for some reason you didn't actually spawn there.

Sorry for the late reply, kinda forgot about this page.

The best thing to do would actually take a look at the LOTRO Moria for ideas considering it's all come straight from the book.

Sorry if this has been answered somewhere else but did you build this on survival or creative? The contents of the chests and some of the comments below imply that it was built on survival but to me it seems like quite a menial task to have to carve by hand when it would be much more efficient to use creative.
  • Bagline
  • Level 1
  • New Miner
  • August 20, 2012, 5:07 pm
There is a text file in the world save download that explains in great detail the rules we adhere'd to in it's construction. in short I would say "survival peaceful". It was done on the Godcraft.com build server.

With some of the newer constructions we actually built them in creative mode on a test server then built the design on the live legit godcraft.com server. This let us test out build designs faster and easier without comitting a ton of resources to them.

Believe is or not, the boring digging was actually the best part because you could easily hold a few keys down, then watch tv or a movie and just move your mouse occasionally running back to storage to empty your inv and pick up fresh tools to use.

There's a screenshot somewhere on the moria thread of my block stats showing like 800,000 stone mined and 2500 iron picks depleted among other things. I can safely say that I've mined personally over a million blocks.... ahh, here you go: http://godcraft.com/threads/moria-v3.2496/page-48#post-75445

I have to say that I find it amazing pulling off such a staggering build
on survival. I expected that it would be on peaceful because the amount
of mobs that spawn would make it impossible to build without dying
every few seconds. You can see the sheer amount of stone in the
storeroom as solid evidence to how much has been mined. I'm guessing that
all the obsidian lining the halls would have taken quite a while to
mine. Is the world a custom terrain or naturally generated?
  • Bagline
  • Level 1
  • New Miner
  • August 21, 2012, 10:01 am
The storeroom is actually mostly empty inthe download version because i didn't want to open all 800+ chests to save their contents. On the godcraft serverit's quite full though.

The obsidian was created by placing buckets of lava then covering it with water. much faster than mining.

The terrain is mostly generated by the alpha version of Minecraft, but there are a few areas that were hand-made to cover up the above ground constructions.

Balin's tomb is inside of the 21st hall. Not included in the current download version.

As I mentioned in a previous comment, I'm trying to get my ass in gear to finish the last 5% of the 21st hall so we can upload a newer version.

  • New Miner
  • August 8, 2012, 9:43 am
The only named tomb I've heard of is Balin's. Is Durin's tomb known by another name? (like how Durin's bridge is also known as the bridge of Khazad dum)

Either way, it's not included.
  • scit45

The legit copy has been about 95% done since a few days before the release of Diablo 3. (our self imposed deadline)

The model we made on our test server has been 95% done for a month or two before that.

My mind is trying to piece together a desire to continue working on it. If I get the last two wall sections completed on my test server, we'll probably post an updated version.

I used a map viewer for Minecraft called Minutor ( http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/37981-minutor-osxlinuxwindows-16/ ) and took screenshots from varying heights, then combined them into one image using a photo manipulation program. (GIMP would be the best free alternative. Search Google for "GIMP" if you want it.)

There is a text file included in the download that covers this. I think all we ask for is a link to... uh either the original project thread on godcraft.com or the youtube video that i made to release the download. Both url's should be in the file.

also, please let me know about the final product. I love to see what our work has been used for.

An email address you can reach me at is included in that text file also if there are more specific questions.

Even at a height of 85 blocks, the hall is not tall enough to put a full-size balrog with decent looking detail.

I did create a Balrog head on a pike in a different hall in Moria, but it is not available in the current download version.

i would give u three hundred stacks of dimand if i could very nice and the world save and mc edit good job all the other cool under ground things are only mc edit
None of this is done using MCEdit. This was all dug out by hand carved by hand and all the materials were gathered by hand. The only thing that would set this apart is damage is turned off along with mobs. Everything else is 100% legit. Hell the pictures in the bottom corner of the video show the build being build over time. None of which was done using MCEdit. To put it into perspective this build has been going on for almost a year and a half now. I would estimate over 5000+ man hours minimum in total have gone into this build.
