Old Wedding Cathedral (My very first lot, yay! :D)

Alright, I finally found the inspiration (and patience lol) to create my first own lot. It's a small gothic cathedral with graveyard. Why create a church when there are already several to download? Well, for my purpose, I don't want my sims to get married in their backyard, that will be for the afterwards party, but want a traditional wedding in a church. Almost all churches I downloaded so far were built in what I call "two-tile" style, meaning the main cross of the building's base is two tiles wide. Now if you want to place a wedding arch, which is three tiles wide, in the middle line of the church, you can't because it always is one tile more on the left or right side of the line. So I created a cathedral where the main corss is three tiles wide so teh wedding arch sits perfectly in the middle (Another reason for three tiles are those awesome new two story portals that came with the EP, which are three tiles wide as well).
Outside the mainfence is a small telephone booth with a regular wall phone so you can invite your friends to this community lot for the wedding.

Note: I dunno why, but for some reason, while in neighborhood view, the towers don't show properly and their roofs look flat. But they look just fine on the lot itself.
Note2: I would like to give credit to all those who created the floors and walls I used in this lot, but I downloaded so many already, and most don't even have information who created them, that I can't say for sure who created them. Whoever made the walls and floors will know they are his/hers creation, I'm not selling them off as my own. Thank you all for the great work!
I'm no architectural mastermind and this is my very first lot, so please don't judge too hard XD

Sorry, forgot to add that you need University to run this lot, because of the grand entry portal, the two story columns and those little gothic windows. But I think you can load it with the normal Sims2 as well, just have to add new colums and a portal.

kitnkabootle: Actually, I didn't use any reference when I built this cathedral, but when I was done, I couldn't help but think that I somewhere had seen a similar one, now I know where XD

In my feedback thread for this cathedral I heard a few people saying that they have problems using large lots in their game. If you guys want, I can also create a smaller version of this one, sorta chapel like, on a smaller lot.

Sure, I'll re-model it a bit so it doesn't contain uni-objects. And it should be hack free, I checked it on a fresh installation (laptops are great :D) and the CleanInstaller didn't spot any hacks. But then again, the only hack that would've been inside (removed it though before packaging) would be the formal clothes wedding hack, nothing too terrible I think.

I'm having soo much fun with this church! I used some cheats and placed Merola's mind control mirror in the lot. Now I can have control of my weddings guests. There is a lovely lectern that any sim dressed as a priest or minister can use and it really looks like he's officing the ceremony!

Since april your church is the center of my neighbourhood I play with. I made the towers a little bit higher and it looks great! Esspecially with the possibilities of nightlife. Thanks again.

I used this as a res lot in Uni. It didn't work in my new NL hood (not your fault, these things just happen when you delete terrains.) Will redownload it and look forward to using it again.
