[Metal Gear Solid] MGS Shadow Moses Island re-imagined in Vanilla Minecraft.

MGS: Shadow Moses Island

A tribute to one of the greatest series in video game history. This
Minecraft adventure map is based on the island of Shadow Moses from
Metal Gear Solid on PSX (1998).

Full version now available for download!

Game Play & Features

Bonus map areas from VR missions, Metal Gear Solid 4, Podcasts and print material.

Eastereggs such as a nod to the dream sequence from MGS3 “Guy Savage” where you can play another as of yet unreleased Minecraft adventure map from Doom II, and the hidden Creepotans spread out through each area, plus many more!
  • Custom Minecraft Adventure Launcher
  • Commentary and in-depth storyline from the original Metal Gear Solid
  • Bonus side missions and stories
  • Working redstone machinery
  • Huge explorable world of Shadow Moses Island
  • Extensive boss fights modeled after the originals
  • Hidden areas and working vents, shafts, and sewers
  • No complicated mods to install, built for Vanilla Minecraft
  • Tons of content
Custom Launcher Features:
  • Set Gametype  
  • Set game difficulty  
  • Delete player data and start a new game.  
  • Save player data and location  
  • Restore the map to its original state while keeping player data.

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


***The map is a slightly bigger scale than the Minecraft character to show better detail.
*** Please read the instructions for the launcher before use.
*** I will add updates as they come, This project is currently on v1.2 for Minecraft 1.7.9

System Requirements

This custom launcher will only work with Microsoft Windows operating Systems.

Java 32 or 64 bit
2Gb of ram allocated for the Minecraft_Server.exe

500 Mb free Hard Drive space (Uncompressed)


Here is how to get to and install the map files without the launcher:

Extract the the .Zip file and open the containing folder.
Open the "MGS Shadow Moses Island for Minecraft" folder.
Copy the "world_master" folder to " %appdata%\.minecraft\saves ".
Open your Minecraft client and go to Single Player.
You will now see "MGS:Shadow Moses" under your world saves.


Full version now available for download! (95Mb .zip)

Could we have some teleport co-ordinates for the insertion point? My save always loads me in the hangar.

I have not updated the Launcher for v1.8 yet. You can however, extract just the map with the instructions of this page.
I will fix this problem as soon as I can.

I don't know what you mean? I'm running my Minecraft under 1.7.10, why wouldn't the launcher at least open normally? I also tried downloading the Adventure Map Launcher standalone from your website and got the same result. I just want to understand why it crashes when 1.7 used the same Minecraft Launcher as 1.8.

I will update the Launcher to 1.8 after a LAN bug is fixed in the 1.8 Minecraft Server that is currently blocking me.
