We also recommend avoiding the use of Optifine or any other mods. This map is meant for Singleplayer. And it highly adviced to disable your own resourcepacks while playing the map.

In the Heist the player tries to avoid security systems such as cameras, guard robots, lasers, sonar etc in order to steal valuable prototypes from a high security underground research facility. The player accomplishes this with the help of his/her Gameband which has various functions such as being able to hack numpads and consoles, see through walls with x-ray vision, stun robots, stick to ceilings etc. This map features stunning in-game models and animated textures as well as ingame custom sounds and voice acting. The map is a game on its own, as in it completely drops the traditional Minecraft Mechanics such as crafting or fighting mobs. Instead of health the player has to deal with Awareness. Every time the player gets spotted by a camera or guard robot the alarm level will rise. As soon as the alarm level reaches 100% the alarm triggers, the whole place goes on lock down and the player is busted whereafter they get reset to their latest checkpoint. In order to avoid this the player relies on the various functions of the Gameband they get gradually unlocked throughout the game. The only problem is that every time the player uses an ability it consumes energy. When your energy runs out you have will find a recharge station to restore your energy.

The Heist is a very unique game that relies on over 6000 command blocks in order to work and is one of the most advanced maps released to date.

Even though it's in 1.8.7, It's still one of the best maps I've played so far and I've played a lot of maps (of different genres too)! Was a little laggy which sucked on the final level but the map's greatness made up for it. Have recommended the map to my friends too!

Edit: The end of the game said "to be continued..." Any info about the potential sequel???!
I can’t even play this map 😔😔😔😔🙁🙁🙁🙁

diese Zip-datei funktioniert nicht wenn man sie in den minecraft / retures ordner legt

Wheres the resource pack?
I'm interested in how the conveyor belts work. Perhaps a video showing the mechanics?
Absolutely incredible. I remember when I played War of Bones I really gave high praise because he came up with such a unique minecraft mechanic (in that case, playing as a support role) and this leaves me similarly dumbfounded with its amazing stealth mechanic. Very challenging, but ultimately fair.

Some levels are long enough I kind of wish there was a checkpoint system in place so I wouldn't have to keep re-doing parts, but ultimately every time a section seems "impossible" it's just because I was missing something.

EVERYBODY THIS IS HOW U DO IT!!!! after you download it drag it to your desktop. if it is in a zipped folder you have to open it and drag out the heist onto the desktop and it should look like an open notebook with lots of papers in it. then at the same time hit the windows key and R and it should come up with Run. search %appdata% and all these folders should come up then go to .minecraft, then look down and open saves and drag that folder from the desktop into saves. Please tell me if it works for you. :) :]

All hail Cubehamster, because he made so advanced robots, but mostly because he translated this game into Slovenian language(Yup, I'm from Slovenia!).

2 things:
1. Bring back the old robot sound (it sounded like buzzing).
And 2. There are a few glitches such as not hearing voices (but the text is still displayed) after the alarm goes off.
Edit: The new robot sound is very annoying to me.

It's the zipfile called resources. It should load automatically though when you start the map in singleplayer.
