France refused to rebuild Notre Dame from the Assassin’s Creed Unity model. Building reconstructed by 3D-scans

According to Gachot, the developers of Assassin's Creed Unity, who spent two years studying Notre Dame, created an incomplete copy

cathedral, but its artistic interpretation. Artists were interested in the appearance of buildings, not their structure.

“The authors of Assassin's Creed createdartistic copy. They are very good artists who work from photographs and plans. But it happens that their statue is two meters higher than in real life, and for them this is completely unimportant. We provide precision down to millimeters, we work with engineers and analysts.”

Architects and engineers made several precise 3D laser models of the cathedral before the start of its previous reconstruction, which led to a fire. It will be used to restore Notre Dame.

On the evening of April 15 at Notre Dame Cathedral in ParisA major fire occurred in Paris, causing the roof and spire of Notre Dame to collapse. The French authorities promised to restore the cathedral; in just a few days, patrons of the arts have donated more than 800 million euros.
