*EDIT* I'll need to redo this for 1.13 and beyond to get the included resource pack working. Will do at some point

Santa Maria del Fiore, the cathedral in Florence Italy (and Assassin's Creed 2). I built it in 1:2 scale on a multiplayer server in October 2010, and ever since I have wanted to do it in 1:1 scale.

New for 1.8: the bundled resource pack is applied automatically when you load the world. It also includes old style fences in some places (this build was created before fences attached to blocks, and counts on that behavior in some places), tie rods and statues all of which needed mods before. The textures are an edited version of Steelfeathers' pack. Steelfeathers gets all the credit for the texture pack, and anything that looks bad is probably something I edited.

To play,
  1. put the Duomo folder inside the %appdata%.minecraftsaves folder
  2. If you are using Optifine, Minecraft's auto switching to a resource pack bundled with a world is slightly buggy: the stained glass will not take on the appearance of the custom resource pack. You'll need to copy the resource pack into your resource pack folder and switch to it manually for everything to look right.

TODO: modern accurate interior is done, maybe a second version more geared towards Assassin's Creed-like parkour puzzling, and with details appropriate to that era / game (the old choir, chandeliers, old facade maybe). Would love to see it if anyone else makes some better parkour goodness out of this.

As I understand from the description, it is available for use in a project (if I won't earn money) as long as I give credit; but I would like to ask again if you allow me to do so?

awesome :D now i want to play ac2 again xD
didn't play it for a year or so now, but remembered everything. great job with the sound.
i know you visited florence, but have you ever seen san gimignano? almost every step reminded me to ac2, great how the programmers created it in the game. would also be a huge project for minecraft ;)

I have never been to San Gimignano, but I knew about it before playing AC2 and it was really neat to see in game. It would make a neat Minecraft project. I thought Venice would be neat, but it's really too big for anyone to build (completely at least) but someone could do San Gimignano. Scale is a little more realistic :)

Thanks for checking out the project :)

except i hope you know florence is a real city and the duomo isn't from assassin's creed, but this cathedral really exists.

yeah I've been there. This one is modeled after the real one, not the one in Assassin's Creed (which has a few weird changes, like an entire level missing inside the cupola)

Amazing project, but can you actually reach the dome by climbing? You skip through parts of the video and I was wondering if it is even possible.

Mediafire removed all my files. Ive reuploaded my mods, havent got around to the builds yet. Working on it, i was actually working on getting the bundled statue mod updated so i could upload this for 1.3.2. Will get to it ASAP, and if the statues take too long ill just upload without them for now

thanks :) I need to update the statue and beam mods for 1.3.1, but it's usable without.

Not so much without the texture pack though. I do have a version more suitable for vanilla texture pack, thinking about uploading that some time

You should build a replica of Florence as shown in Assassins Creed. It would be an awesome free running map for people, and for many other things, too.

yep. you can swap some blocks around in worldedit and get something reasonable. pink wool -> red wool. light green wool -> stone. netherfence -> fence. orange wool -> brown wool. netherrack or brick or whatever is on the floor -> red wool. cobble or whatever else is on the floor -> green wool. It loses some detail, but fits in a lot better with other stuff. I've done it, don't think I have it saved anywhere though

It was all built around a custom texture pack though and I make no apologies for it.
