Update #12 : 11/04/2017 8:51:17 amNov 4th, 2017

Heh, it has been some time since I've played with this. Got a degree and got a job, and now I found some time to finish the building :) The choir is done now, I fixed some things and adjusted others. I still can't decide about all the details and crypt is only 1/3 done. I think the cathedral looks really good now though. Thanks for everyone appreciating the build, have fun!

If you want 150 pics of planning i did when I visited and all the measuruements skype me Lukenort68. I could help but I'm swamped with team stuff

I haven't worked on it. The altar part feels too hard and I haven't managed to make it look nice so far :/ Maybe I should build something else and hope the problem solves itself :D

oh really? sucks, it was looking so good! Probably a good idea though, could you upload a schematic of what your already done on it (i won't upload a completed version or anything like that, i just love building cathedrals and yours is the best), obviously I understand if you don't want to though :)

Awesome, glad to see an update! I think a more plain kinda roof would be cooler, but thats just me :)

I'll try a wooden roof first, one like I have in lower parts of the cathedral. Using the same "trick" every time may not be the best idea :)
awesome, are you putting download link when your finished? also diamond!

Yes, but I haven't made any progress. I'm kind of stuck with nave vaulting (=inner roof). I have expiremented with different designs but haven't managed to do a good-looking one yet.

I haven't given up yet though, so don't worry :P

Those wooden tower roofs are also temporary, I think they need more detail like the highest completed tower has.

FyreUK will launch another build contest probably very soon. They talked about giving out a premade map where people need to construct their builds, snd I'm kind of hoping my build will fit into that map. Maybe then I'll have a more pressing need to complete this cathedral (altough they said they won't accept cathedral submissions this time!) :D
love it :)

I love the "under construction " aspect of pics you've taken from your work, wood beams, floor of the roof. It could be a masterpiece even in this "shape". Just place one or two wood crane to improve this aspect.

You still have my diamond for this tremendous work !

Higher vaulted version of http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/cathedral-of-our-lady-of-amiens/

I didn't like original's vaulting and expiremented with a different style. I made it bigger though and it was too much effort to adapt it to the old design so I started a completely new project instead, Chartres, where I promised to myself to fix everything :P

Yes. Of course this will probably take quite some time to finish :D I'll try to make nicer surroundings too for the build. Clean up the mess, plant some trees, make paths etc.
