What is Minecraft Middle Earth?

Minecraft Middle Earth is a project with the goal to create the lands, towns and areas of Middle Earth.

We do this by organizing ourselves as a group and with methods to build the areas. The server has a very experienced group of creative staff members who set up jobs and projects.

Themed Builds

Every week there is a new Themebuild. These are basically weekly build contests you can either join to get a new rank, or in order to improve your building skills. You'll receive feedback if you wish by our creative staff! Since every week features a new theme, you can easily try again with a theme that you like better.

Jobs and Projects?

Projects are a collection of tasks that require massive creativity and work (building Gondor, Moria, Mordor, ..). These are usually split up in smaller tasks in which everyone can help out as long as there is a staff member online. These jobs could be building furniture in houses, building houses, farmland, roads, walls, outposts etc...

You'll receive creative mode and creative flying so there is no need to gather the resources. Just creative building!

What do I need to join?

MCME is easy to join as you don't need any mod pack. Just join the server and go through a New Player Quiz with some basic questions, and start exploring all the places we already built. You are able to fly and teleport to places.

13 Update Logs

Update to 1.12.2 : 12/10/2017 5:06:49 amDec 10th, 2017

The server is running 1.12.2 for some time already.

We are now using a server plugin to create custom block inventories. This enables us to use many more blocks for building than available from creative inventory while you still don't need any client mod to join.

Current projects are:
  • Belfalas with the main city, Dol Amroth.
  • Mountains of Andrast
  • A huge new version of Moria with a height of more than 700 blocks (using automated teleportation)
  • Terrain of Mordor

Can I download this map for my own use? If so, where?

I'm sorry, the map is not for download. But the server is free to join at build.mcmiddleearth.com. You have to do a short quiz about the rules first but afterwards you are able to fly around and teleport to all interesting locations.

Also everyone is invited to help building. The basic idea of MCME is building

Middle-earth together!

Im on this server for a good 6 months now and I tell you it is very good. They have a nice, friendly and active community. And what they are doing is up and truly amazing as well! I mean who does not want to see Middle-Earth recreated in minecraft?

The only thing I can say, joining and cecking it all out is really worth the efford. (And dont be scared of the quiz it really is not that hard)

All building at the main map is overseen by Formen and Designers. When the have something to build which is not too difficult they will start a job. You can check for such jobs by command /job check and then /job join <jobname>. Also you can ask Designers and Formen if they have anything to build for you.

At any time you can start a Themed-build by /theme to show us your building skills. With good skills you can apply for Artist to get more difficult building tasks.

The Mines of Moria if my favorite place of this server, but I can only watch, not play, I want to make and adventure plot to play with my brothers in our private server.

Can somebody recommend me a downloadable world map of Moria as good as this?

Sadly, I haven't found anything near as good as this one yet. There are very few downloadable Moria maps out there, but this one is the best downloadable one I could find.
Just an incredible server. I walked right through middle earth and it was amazing. I felt like I was gollum hiding in the Misty Mountains or Frodo Baggins throwing the ring right into Mount Doom. It was awesome.

You're building a map, so a livemap would be great :)

Dynmap is the generally most used plugin for that

I've been looking for a LOTR server for quite some time haha! Glad I found this.
Nice stuff :)
This looks so awesome but for some reason I can't join.
You need to join with a legal Minecraft 1.10 client (no cracked client). But no mods are needed.

Is there an error message, when you try to join?
There is, "failed session".
So, what percentage do you think you're finished with this map, in terms of what you know is there?
"finished" is a difficult thing.
We already built most main places of The Lord of the Rings (only Mordor and The Grey Havens are not build yet).
But while building our style improves and older builds don't look very good to many of us.
Thus we are about to start a complete rebuild of Moria and many other places will probably be rebuild at some time.
We also plan to build the places of The Hobbit (The Shire, Trolls and Rivendell are already built) and less important places like Iron hills, Gundabad, Dol Guldur, Umbar and many more. This includes large areas like Rhovanion and Harad with very few lore known about.

MCME is a long term project and also a community built project. Everyone may join the server and help. You will find more information at www.mcmiddleearth.com.
How do I get on?
I typed in the server IP
I answered the Questions
now what do I do?
Are you stuck in the new player quiz?
You have to press the correct button in each room of the quiz to proceed.
I answered all the questions in the beginning but I can't find a button to submit them.
Got into the server for the first time, none of the buttons do anything. PLEASE HELP AGH I WANNA JOIN SO BAD
Fixed, try again :)

ok i might join server but does that mean i have to be an experienced builder because im so-so at that
You don't need any building skills. It's totally ok to just walk / fly / teleport around and explore the map.

If you want you can also help building without great building skills. There are sometimes 'jobs' which are created by Designers. These are quite simple tasks like building roads, farm walls, rivers... The Designer leading the job will give you instructions what to build, he will watch your progress and will give you advice if there is anything to be improved.
A bit different are 'plotbuilds' which are used for e.g. small houses and trees. For a plotbuild there will be a building guide on the forum www.mcmiddleearth.com or ingame. Following this guide you can build your own house there and a Designer will check it and help you to improve until it is accepted and copied to the main map.

When your building skills improve and you want to build larger stuff like bridges, large houses, towers you can apply for Artist rank.

Great Server, This Looks Perfect For Shader Testing As Well, Great Job!
Hope You Make More Servers In The Future!
Hey guys, I've added your server to our server review list.

My team plans to do a review on the server sometime this week.
But, im missing some information.  Do you have a website?
who is the owner? 

Thanks :)

Heres the review page for refrence. LINK

Community is managed by q220.
Website is found at www.mcmiddleearth.com
You will need to pass a small obstacle which is like a quiz maze. It teleports you to different rooms with questions that you have to answer correctly. If you follow the instructions and spend 10 minutes max reading our rules, everyone can pass it easily.
awsome, thanks for the info. It might be kinda fun doing the quiz.

I like servers that do intros like that.
There more unique and the help weed out the griefers. :)

I believe that It would be very nice of you to allow people to download this map once it is in a state of completion. Now, I know that maybe a long time from now, seeing as how large the world you ae trying to build is, but still, it would be very nice of you to let atleast some people download your map so that they may experience it. perhaps you could only allow those who apply for the download to download it from your website.

same, i would love a download for the full map (the download size will be big) and witness the map, without internet issues, and offline for personal use, to quickly run/fly around the world, to see all the famous buildings and place from the wonderful LOTR series.
jaw dropping will this eventually be a wolrd save?

We won't put the map up for download, because sadly people would steal it. But it's really easy to join the server, and then you don't have to download anything over and over whenever we build something new!
looks rly cool but i dont play servers any more sry

What do you mean by "unofficial server?"
If you mean with an unpaid Minecraft account, it's because we don't allow illegal accounts online, and you'll have to buy a real one to join.

We've had a couple people who are getting connection issues recently. It hasn't been resolved yet, and I don't know much about these things, but I know you can:
-Make sure you have a stable WiFi or other Internet connection
-Make sure you're using the right version of Minecraft
-Make sure you only have one Minecraft window open at a time. If you do have more than one of the game running, quit all of them, then open just one of it and try again.

Good luck, and welcome to MCME!

We're not going to open the server to unpaid accounts, but trust me, it's worth it to buy the game. Hope to see you online soon!
Of course i would buy the game but i cant because i have no credit card
