Hello my game name is HTP and basically I've done a survival mode project of recreating as much of Middle Earth as possible.

I did this on survival mode purely for the fun and satisfaction at the end result. I have currently built Helms Deep and Edoras however I still need to put some finishing touches on Edoras before it is finished. So yes, tell me what you think and whether you think I should do more of these. If you want to keep up to date on the project follow me on twitter @theheeteepee

Helms Deep took me probably around 14 minecraft days to excavate and build the enviornment, 14 more to gather supplies and about 14 to build approximatley. Edoras is taking a lot longer due to having to build the actual mountain which it sits on.

Good job, especially for doing it in survival.

Finished Edoras off today finally, took a lot more time than Helms Deep did and is probably going to be my final survival creation as I'll most likely move on to creative in order to do larger structures such as Sauron's eye or Osgiliath.

Anyway this is the final result of Edoras:

I would love it if you could do Sauron's Eye surrounded by mountains and have the Black Gate as the opening between the mountain sides.

Considering that you made these in survival it's really amazing, good job.

Thanks guys!

Yeah Saurons Eye is going to be quite a big project for me, love the idea of black gates and mountains though! Hadn't thought about that yet.

Inside of Golden Hall interior is still going to be worked on atm, finding it difficult with the throne and making the tables look like part of Rohan but will definatley put it on my to do list and get back to you shortly!

You won't believe how many of my friends have asked me to do this on survival..... I pointed out it would mean my absence from their social doings, yet they still didn't mind :L I'll have a think about it, I can see how to do it creative wise... You never know....

At the moment I am currently in the construction of the mines or moria (which is going to be huge and take a large amount of time) however a few have asked for the eye so I popped onto creative just to see what things would look like.

First of all it is worth mentioning that the version you are going to see is probably only 60% the size of what the real Saurons Eye will be when I create it with lots of time and care.

With this one I sort of rushed on the mountain and design of the structure. But it is more to just give you guys an idea of what the final one could possibly look like. Please give feedback on it, as I found it quite hard to make the tower look daunting and such.
