Thank you so much, that was our goal. We wanted to make the classic cathedral of Notre-Dame to be one of the most detailed renditions on Minecraft, if not the most at least exterior wise.

You definitely achieved that. From a distance, I’m sure many people would mistake it for the actual cathedral!

I appreciate your recreation of the Notre Dame de Paris.
I am feeling sad I cannot join the contest since I have just know about it a day before deadline.
Maybe I could made it but I am running out of time,
I could have made a church from my country to represent my heritage.

Thank you very much for the compliment on the build! We have our fingers crossed, but there's some other good pieces out as well who have just as much of a chance as we do! But again, thanks!

I already had the chance to visit this cathedral before the fire, and this monument is definitely one of the most impressive monument in the world. Details in-game are really inpressive! This is by far the best cathedral reproduction i've seen on minecraft !

Good luck for the contest !

We have a schematic file attached, in the event, you are wanting it on single player, you will need the world edit mod via Forge I think and then loading it in through that.

UNESCO Claims it here: https://whc.unesco.org/en/news/1956/
as a World Heritage Site. We also checked on Wiki's and such this should be in the list, We didn't go through the provided list as this was verified by our team prior to starting.

Another link: https://whc.unesco.org/en/documents/111505
and Another link where it's referenced in the description: https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/600

Just with this reference, we decided to go with it.

Yes, the Notre-Dame de Paris is a small part of a larger area listed as UNESCO World Heritage called "Banks of the Seine": https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/600

It's very beautiful, I like it.

BUT there is one question! How to distinguish this cathedral from thousands of the same in the Internet?)


PS: 2,3 and 4 screenshots are flawless)

Check it out in game, you will see. The scale, colors, and insane accuracy set this apart from the others. It truly is unique.

Hey there,

I'm sorry I'm not sure what aspect are you inquiring too.

Are you asking how to confirm if we built this? Or something else?

SANAR
The fact that you built it, I have no doubt)
Do not take it as a reproach or the like. (just my subjective opinion)
I mean that this cathedral has already been built a lot of times in minecraft, I can’t find obvious differences only if I personally go into the game and compare it with other projects.



There is an expression "no limit to perfection". That's why I put like.
PS: I apologize if I do not clearly express my thoughts, I use Google as a translator.

Someone should take every Notre Dame build in Minecraft and put them all into one world for comparison. It would be interesting to compare and contrast different takes on the same building.

I thougth about building Notré Dame too, because of the event; but I was not sure if I should built the status quo, before the fire or one of the possible reconstruction plans. However I like you work and these is one of the few I am not jealous of having less Diamonds ;D

You are right there are a lot of Cathedrals.

The reason we did this, was because of the sad event that happened in April, 2019 when the Notre-Dame caught fire we chose to do it for that reason. We have a few French builders on our team, and we agreed that was our choice for a Sapphire project.

Hopefully, the detail, size, and presentation set this apart from other Cathedrals you have seen.

Our intention wasn't to win this contest rather just partake in the preserving world-heritage aspect as we resonated with the theme/contest idea.
