SCHEMATIC REMOVED: see www.planetminecraft.com/project/fully-detailed-cathedral---st-jakob-inspired/
for latest schematic.

First, if you like this structure please let me know by up voting it with a like. If you don't like it, please comment what you see wrong with it.

This structure was built by myself and based on pictures of the actual structure in Rothenburg, Germany.

I was so pleased with the way everything was going with this structure that I can't wait any longer to share it. It's 90% complete. I'd still like to build some catacombs under it, some of the side structures need some work to define their use, and some more landscaping needs to be done as well as some aging, but otherwise I'm very pleased with the result. BTW, I'm not sure I could ever say any of my structures are 100% complete because I'm always tinkering with them.

The structure is 78W X 152L X 80H. I'm pretty sure you can move the structure 4 blocks down without losing anything. I went 4H deeper just in case.

You are free to use this structure as you like as long as I am given credit. Also the structure is viewed best using my texture pack: www.planetminecraft.com/texture_pack/medieval-rothenburg/

Not happy with the lack of roofing and color options, I modified the standard texture pack. While it is not perfect, yet, it is the palette I am using.

Like others, I'd greatly appreciate it if you would -

No, she sees all electronic related games as a waste of time and wants to know why I'm not working on my house IRL instead of playing a stupid game. ;) and yes it's always something else.

She doesn't even like the kids playing games. I've tried to explain that it's equivalent to playing a board game, doing a puzzle or in the case of MC building with legos or painting a picture. It all falls on deaf ears though and although she's a pain in my @ss, I love that she's my pain. Cheers and good luck!

Not mad or upset, just sharing. After 21 years (17 married) you learn to deal with it.

This is amazing, I can't wait until I can get the world save. You're a very talented builder, you should build for community servers! Bravo, sir, honestly!

Thank you! My first attempts at various buildings I didn't think were very good either when compared to some of the buildings I saw being posted. So I downloaded the best schematics and studied how the structures were built. I've learned a lot that way. Also studying pictures of real buildings helps too. Google sketch-up is a nice tool to look at buildings in 3 dimensions.

Two of the things I've learned is that it's important to try to create depth in your building and while buildings often appear symmetrical at first glance, there are often little details like changes in material that make it less symmetrical and more interesting.

Hmmm... I never thought of using Sketchup as a way to improve my building. It's been on my hard disk gathering dust. I'll try and use it sometime.

I'll also keep your tips in mine (Get it?) while making new creations. Thanks!

Thanks, I look forward to seeing it blown up. Maybe wait a week or two for the world save and you can blow the whole city, or I guess do both. And yes, it took a bit of time.

World save should be available in the next week or two. Now that the church is 90% done, I'm going to finish the walls and then I'll upload the save.
