Level 79 : Legendary Creator
After over 2 years of building, we have finally decided to create a project on PlanetMinecraft for our Middle-Earth project.
This project has been worked on for several years and we have made a lot of progress already, but the download won't be avalible until we think we have finished enough.
Seperate locations on this world will still be released in seperate projects, to make sure you can already enjoy those without having to wait for our full and final project to be done.

Project information
This project will be updated about twice a month with new screenshots of progress we made, new builds, more information and maybe eventually a full download of the project, so we highly encourage you to subscribe to us and check out this project once in a while to check for eventual updates, if you like our works.

How we work
The way we build Middle-Earth is by slowly creating more and more of the most important locations. Once in a while we connect these locations with roads, and build some of the terrain between them. Because this is a huge 24.000 x 24.000 block project, we may not give each and every chunk of land as much terraforming attention, but we will do our best creating the best replicas of the important locations.

To define progress of this project, we have seperated it into several different regios, depending on location and style.

Amon Hen (100%)
Argonath (100%)
Nen Hithoel (100%)

RIP this project I suppose, we had one available backup of the map, which was from 2015, so the iron hill and most terrain does not exist.

I've got to say, you guys worked really hard to make such an amazing map.
This is an amazing project, and I think that it's cool that so many different people are working on it, offering different styles of building. My brother and I are huge LOTR fans, so I can't wait to see it finished so that I can be a part of the Fellowship! I've downloaded the map for Minas Tirith, and it's amazing.

Good luck on this project! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the progress!

Looks super epic already! :)
I hope Lothlórien will come up soon! :D
Super cool.   it would be sick if yall put iron hills for download
You guys are doing great, but I have a suggestion, you guys should add Hobbiton, the Goblin Kingdom, Beorn's house, Rivendell, the Woodlenrealm and kingdom, this would make the map complete, but keep up the good work, and thank you for doing this amazing Middle Earth!

Heyy Epicquestz :D Im a big Fan your builds make me happy :D
Ad here are my suggestions
Ithilien (the land of the moon) The Rangers of ithilien dwells there and protects Gondor 
Grey Mountains (Home of Durin's Folk) you should add them to Rhovanion because they were the Dwarves that fought in the battle of the Five Armies
Blue Mountains After Erebor was taken by Smaug the Dwarves scatterd and they built a Kingdom in the blue mountains they were close to Lindon (Grey Havens) they were friends with the High Elves

Thought so! Thanks. You should also add mirkwood (including thraduil's halls, and Dol Guldur) to your Rhovanion map :3
  • EpicQuestz
  • Level 79
  • Legendary Creator
  • May 7, 2015, 1:57 pm

  • jmo104
  • Level 20
  • Expert Warrior
  • April 10, 2015, 3:32 pm
Heyyy I yeah I forgot EpicQuestz :D Can you add this places

-Blue Moutains Nogrod and Belegost (the moutains of the Blue Dwarves)
-Orocarni (Red Mountains) (The Home of the Red Dwarves)
-Grey Moutains (The Home of Durin's Folk after being exiled from Kazhad - Dum)
-Lindon or The Grey Havens (also Known as the last fair realm where the High Elves lives)
-Near Harad and Far Harad (Where the Haradrim and The Half Trolls came from)
-Ithilien (Where the Rangers of Ithililen lived and defended their camps
-The Uruk Highlands and the Ruined part of Fangorn Forest

These are just Suggestions But I hope you can consider it but if not it's okay I love your Builds :DDDD

Blue Mountains and Grey Mountains are a good Idea.
The Orocarni, Near Harad and Far Harad are too far South and Easet, and had no defined builds mentioned in books or movies. 
Lindon has the Grey Havens planned, don't worry.
Ithellien is surprising that they arent already have it.
The Uruk Highlands arent in the books or movie, but a placeholder used in the Lord of the Rings mod.
This so Amazing Our Dark Lord Sauron Is So Proud.

So Epic Diamond :D 365th DIAMOND yeah :D I love all of your builds they make me so happy because I am a HUGE Fan of J.R.R Tolkiens Work :D YEah thats all EPIC DIAMOND!

Divici does things on his own, while recently EpicQuetz lets other people help them build. While Divici would have one artistic style, EpicQuestz would have many, so if they collaborated, Divici would just become one of many builders.

I wouldn't say no to working with divici, but I imagine we would have our own ways of doing things.

This is absolutely incredible! I love all the detail you put into every single creation. It really gives each one its own feel but unites them under Middle Earth. :)
