I would like to throw out thanks to Radec who built the Metal Gear Rex and the HIND. The Rex model actually inspired the build for my MGS:Shadow Moses Island adventure map. All other parts of the build are solely by me, Reichenstein7

  • *** Feedback will be appreciated. This map should be as close to the real game as possible.
  • *** Please read the instructions for the launcher before use.

Step 1:

<p>This sounds very interesting. You got a diamond in there :) I'll be sure to try the map!</p>
<p>Thank you! I hope to release the full map very soon.</p>
What minecraft version
<p>This map was last updated for 1.7, the custom launcher could not be upgraded to 1.8 when it was first released. I am going to look at updating it for 1.8.1 and hopefully the roadblock has been resolved.</p><p>I have also thought about setting this up as a public server again too. (The demo was in public server form, but took a lot of grief, however it was reset every day from a backup.)</p>
When are you going 2 release it?
<p>The full version has now been released!</p>
i downloaded it but it dont have communication tower
<p>The demo stops after the tank hanger area. Check back soon for the full game with all areas included.</p>
God man you have WAY too much time on your hands
<p>Haha, well it was off and on over almost 2 years. Plus I work fast =)</p>
But that's not a bad thing
