Welcome to Red rose city.

With this update this project is 5 years old. Changes since last year focus mainly on quality, and completion of already existing structures. The cathedral is as always 'almost' finished, but reaches for the first time the desired quality and feel. This also counts for the garden you see in the titleimage. Most structures take into account that players want to climb, walk or destroy them, so they show great detail in places where you wouldn't expect it.

Hope my passion for old-fashioned architecture is somehow contagious to you - enjoy :)


About how this project arose:
This project was initiated by my brother in 2012 who levelled down a world in survival with a team of aprox 30 people, and constructed an early prototype of some of the cathedrals pillars.
Till then I regarded building a cathedral of imaginary blocks as a somewhat crazy hobby, but once he showed me the project and the community I got interested in drawing some proposals for windows which he accepted. Soon after that I buyed minecraft which resulted in me in taking over the leadership of the project.
Over time, more than 145 people helped on the cathedral. In the "survival time" it was mostly replicating structures as windows etc. But their task areas involved also farming resources, giving me precious critique and even contributing with own designs to the cathedral. The players contributions include the stained-glass design of many of the cathedrals windows, an altar, many garden-elements, and even parts of the basilica.

In the Survival-time, we had a huge wooden scaffolding and train system for transporting resources.
But when time went on, the complecity and resources the project demanded increased to a level, where fly , gamemode and worldedit became a necessity to continue it. One central demand I had to the project was that it should be build to the highest standards we as a team could imagine of, and if someone had a proposal which improved something, it was changed, (with me having the final say about it), so most parts of the project are in their 2nd or 3rd ''iteration'. This also includes things as the core proportion of the cathedral which has been changed several times. Since 3 years, I am building rather alone on it, receiving critique and help from time to time.

Update #25 : 08/27/2017 3:26:57 pmAug 27th, 2017

This update focuses on quality, with few structures added. Although, blockchange should exceed 1/2Million.
This is the first update where this project reaches the desired quality and atmosphere (most visible in the titleimage)

The changes include:
Rework of the main-garden you see in the titleimage, (should be perfected now)
Finished the cathedrals ambulatory,
New floor decoration with terracotta patterns,
Rework of the dungeon of the cathedral (much more spacious now)
added on major facade side pink-stained window resembling flames
Rework of the surrounding of the mainentrace of the cathedral in progress (currently very unfinished)

new structures emerging on the side of the garden, but not sure if it will stay (collosseum-like structure and another one resembling the architecture of palmyra

additional credit since last update goes to Nefarias and haleth for giving critique.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The interior of the cathedral is now 98 % finished. (some windows quite lack color)
The exterior of the cathedral is 95% finished, - the 5% unfinished is the exterior side of the pink-stained window.
the cathedrals dungeon system is about, 70% finished.
The garden you see in the mainimage is finished
basilica is about 60% finished, and the white building you see at the right corner of the titleimage is about 50% finished

Hi Caesreon! I'm an editor of China.
I've found your new project

Red rose city | year 4 of construction

. It's really a nice job.
Therefore I'm here to ask if I could repost your project to our website MCBBS:www.mcbbs.net/forum.php.
However, due to the fact that our country has blocked a lot of foreign websites.
So could you allow us create a new Chinese downlink.
I will list your name and the original website clearly.
(Diamond for you :D)

You can use all aviable images and repost it with download.
Since PMC downscales images a lot, here some high quality images:

Holy balls. This is. The most epic. Minecraft build. Ever. Of all time. I would love to help, but I think my already sub-par building skills just got dwarfed a lot more by this build. Seriously, all this and only 40% complete? I don't think I'll ever see the day this is complete. This project will be passed down from generation to generation for a thousand years until it covers the entirety of the Minecraft world it is built in (darned Far Lands). So epic! *drools*

I love the interior structural details, the attics, walkways, frameworks etc.  I would have loved to do that with my cathedral but I think I was hamstrung by limiting it strictly to 1 block == 1 meter on the real world model for mine.  I've been tempted to go 2:1 but I don't think I could pull it off nearly as well as you have, this is a great build

The earlyst traces to this project you can find in this forum,
from 4th mai 2012:

http://forum.lma-minecraft.de/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=115

alternatively:
http://lma-forum.bplaced.net/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=115

Well it is in german, and the cathedral was named lma-cathedral by then ( which is also the url-name of this project on pmc).If you look on the usernames, you will find them in the credit list.
The second forum you can find us (from november 2012)

I love the way you used mathematics to build some things. However, I think it's kinda weird that you misspelt "Earliest" but managed to properly spell "Alternatively". I really love the detail here though!


(P.S., This is an example of a Sandwich compliment. It has criticism, but it has praise to rule it out. It's very effective. Try it next time you comment on someone's project!)

Amazing scale, how much planning went into this? We're almost certain this wasn't a build as you go ;)

The basic proportions of the distance and height of the inner pillars are planned, as well as the appearance of the windows. The rest is "grown", so I planned them whilst I built them.(Edit: At the beginning the golden ratio was used, and planning was done with drawings etc, but lateron imagination was good enough to do it freely.)The Challenge is to keep many different depending aspects whilst building simultaneously into account and try to imagine how the aspects change as you imagine how to optimize one aspect. Aspects would be color, contrast, style, visibility, static credibiility, the apperance from different distances or viewing angles, the mood/aura it creates , walkability). This process includes critique and sometimes help from the team.
