A fire on Monday almost destroyed the legendary Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The structure remains intact with its two main towers being safe, but the main spire collapsed, so the city needs to repair the icon.
Here is a statement from French president Emmanuel Macron:
Cette cathédrale Notre-Dame, nous la rebâtirons. Tous ensemble. C’est une part de notre destin français. Je m’y engage : dès demain une souscription nationale sera lancée, et bien au-delà de nos frontières.

“We will rebuild it. All together,” he tweeted.
One potential source of help is quite surprising and it’s Assassin’s Creed Unity set in Paris.
The thing is that Ubisoft level designer Caroline Miousse spent two years of her life setting up details of the cathedral to create an accurate version of the cathedral, brick by brick.
“I made some other stuff in the game, but 80 percent of my time was spent on the Notre Dame,” she stated back in the days.
The cathedral is the main structure in “Unity with the ability to explore both inside and out. The designer used tons of photos to get the architecture just right, and teamed up with texture artists to make sure that each brick is just perfect.
French representatives didn’t respond to this offer, but the move seems quite logical, right?
There are other resources for restoration, of course. For example, an exact digital replica of the building was captured by a architectural historian, Andrew Tallon, in 2015. You can learn more about the replica here.
