I have a few ideas for how I want this to look, which was simple enough considering the "Gothic medieval cathedral" is one of the most well-known and eye-catching architectural styles around.
The problem: They are HUGE. By definition they are elaborate and wonderful places of worship (and mischief) but then to add all of the signature details in a world of giant blocks? We are talking BIG. There is simply not space for that in our new home, so I need some help. Both Ray and I want this to be as close to reality as possible and 10x more epic, but I can not see how we can add all the historical bells and whistles.
What do you recommend? I am thinking just having the two towers, a main hall/room with the large ceilings, supporting arches and benches. East to West facing as per norm and cross shaped.
This is the basic layout I was imagining originally, but there is too much involved to fit in a reasonably sized area.
So I am stuck between a cobblestone block and a hard place here; Do I simplify it enough to fit but ultimately ruin the magnificence, or scrap the cathedral idea and go for a humble church? I'd like to imagine our city as being a great one that would have the kinds of huge builds that reflect its glory!
P.S. The Wonder Chicken has some amazing ideas (I assume because I am not in his head - thankfully) for what to do in the catacombs of this place. So it will certainly be awesome underground.
