Thnx alot :D Notredame de Paris is such a beautiful structure and we based our facade very much on the 12th century gothic style but i would not call it a replica unless it stays 100% true to the fantastic building. We will very much make some replicas in the future again thnx for the feedback :)

Hopeless to see so much diamonds for a cathedral built without any details...that style was good 2 years ago...

I have to disagee for a number of reasons. Firstly this is not a fantasy building we and we were trying to activley receate a cathedral in the french gothic style, there fore it is impossible to add un-needed details without it looking like a hedgehog. Secondly when you refer to detail please elabourate, do you mean the architectural details? If you refer to more details by adding extra blocks to form shapes on everywall that is unrealistic and it is a choice we made to keep it realistic. I have been to many cathedrals in person to know that they dont just add random carvings into the walls as this would be structually unstable. Thirdly the building was constructed inside out to keep to a true gothic layout found in many cathedrals. This means it is difficult for us to invent parts of form and shape onto the exterior without it also looking unrealistic. And as for realism being good two years ago that i utterly disagree with.

I agree with you both. It is lacking in detail, however whilst it may not fit with large amounts of detail, detail isn't just stair spam. There are lots of areas where you could add detail without ruining the realism feel. I've managed it with excellent results. The whole point of minecraft is to be creative, if you stick to exactly what you see then you can rarely have a creative build. Use some creative license and make the cathedral more exciting, as translating things from real life to minecraft bores the building.

The focus of this cathedral was realism, not stairspam.

Fantastic!  We see a lot of cathedrals on PMC, but many of them are oversized and out of scale in order to capture all the details. This is one of the few Ive seen that keeps the building in scale with the player while not sacrificing detail.  Well done!

Thnx alot we tried to keep it with realism but i saddly have to admit most cathedrals do not exeed 40 blocks in height in the main nave making this very tall. We are working on a 'small scale' style to keep all the architectural details with a realistic height too :P

disagree! they're building to mimic a specific style, and that style might not call for extra decoration.

but i agree with the 'big like' part...

Yes it is a key gothic idea of honesty- details should only be added to part of buildings if they play a certain structual or convinient function. Parts of walls should not just be masked in pointless 'detail'

Sorry, but I must disagree. I am studying architecture and as I learned it a significant part of gothic sacral architecure is to "disolve" the facades to make them look lighter. This kind of style that we now see in minecraft alot was pretty much invented back then.
That does not mean that I think this Cathedral needs more details, though. In my opinion you should try to combine detailed facades with flat ones or it might look pretty messy in minecraft.

Okey enough from me :) just wanted to point that out.
