MCAlagaesia Network

It's been a while since I did a monthly staff newsletter! I'll combine all the work we did over the last 3 months into one single "2019 Q1" post instead.

Over the first quarter of 2019, the team placed 156,245 blocks and destroyed 70,664 blocks. In early January, we hit 5 million blocks placed over the course of the MCAlagaesa 2 project. This is quite an achievement since every single block had to be placed by hand - WorldEdit isn't counted in that statistic!

Builder of the "month" goes to DefJam, placing 43,611 blocks over the 3 month period.

Terraformer of the "month" goes to Nikradical for placing 10,164 blocks over the same period.

Awesome work everyone!

Staff Changes

We're happy to announce 4 new members who have joined the team! A huge welcome to MissWalrus, OcelotEmpire, Shadow204 and Hessean.

Congratulations to AoWork, who was promoted to the rank of Artisan Builder for a total blocks-placed count of 25,994.

We're sad to say goodbye to terraformer 80Active. Thanks for all your help!

If you want to help us finish the project, don't forget to jump on the public build server and submit your application plot!

If you're interested, here's how many blocks each builder has placed since records began.

The fantastic new staff team render has been created by our newest member of the artwork and design team, Shadow204.

You're always welcome to try your hand at creating a staff team artwork to be featured in next month's Staff Newsletter!

Shadow204 Artist How periodically comes out the Staff Newsletter ? Once a month or 4 times a year ? Because i dont have the time for anim...

When you create a character in Arcaena, you'll be able to select a skin from a list of quality skins that we've curated just for the game.

During the development phase, we'd like to give you the opportunity to design one or more skins that will be available to choose!

If you'd love to contribute a skin to see your own work in the game, use one of the templates below.

Arcaena skins are slightly different from Minecraft skins. They're 128 pixels in width and height, whereas default Minecraft skins are 64 pixels in both dimensions.


Layout template and Steve example (Right click -> Save image as)

Use your favourite image editing software (e.g. Adobe Photoshop, Paint.NET, MS Paint).

Have fun working on your designs. Submissions will be made via the page. Submissions are currently disabled, however, we will notify you when you can submit your work.

Remember that submitting a skin is no guarantee that it will be used in the game. It should be of high quality and feature a medieval human, elf, dwarf or Urgal.

We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

It's official - the name of MCAlagaesia's MMORPG is Arcaena.

We've got a website here that tells you everything you'd want to know -

What Happens to MCAlagaesia?

Don't worry, MCAlagaesia isn't going anywhere! It will continue, but focus more on the Minecraft side of things.

MCAlagaesia will continue to host the staff build server, where the MCAlagaesia Project (the map of Alagaesia in Minecraft) is being built. We want Arcaena to have continual updates and improvements as we learn more about the towns and cities in Alagaesia in future books.

This means that MCAlagaesia will also continue to host the public build server, where new players can apply to become a builder or terraformer to help us keep working on the MCAlagaesia Project.

We will also keep the Survival server, for those Minecraft players in our community who aren't interested in applying.

The MCAlagaesia website will stay online with the existing forum for posterity and to continue serving as the public build submissions area.

The only thing that is different is that the game we're making isn't called "MCAlagaesia" and gets a website and forum all of its own.

If you have further questions, comments or concerns, you can always post them here on this news post, create a new thread on the forums, or leave them in the appropriate Discord channel on our Discord server.

We hope you're as excited as we are for the future of MCAlagaesia and Arcaena!
