Metal Gear Craft: Making Outer Heaven A Reality

As a diehard fan of the Metal Gear series and now as a diehard fan of Minecraft, I've decided to embark on the noble undertaking of recreating to scale, to the best of my ability, the massive fortress Outer Heaven from the original Metal Gear. I've seen a few attempts on Youtube but nothing that does it justice, IMO.

It's not much to look at and not very specific, but here's a basic diagram of the three main buildings in Outer Heaven. Keep in mind that each building is absolutely massive in the game. Here's a more in-depth description of Outer Heaven, minus building layouts or detailed pics.

It's going to take quite a while, probably at least a few weeks to a month, including help from my friends. But I will eventually build Outer Heaven.

As soon as I'm finished, I'll post here and will be happy to share it with anyone that's interested.

If anyone has any tips or tricks to help me out, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

That actually doesn't look to hard to make exactly like that diagram, at least from the outside.

Like I said, each building is MASSIVE and is filled with so many corridors and rooms on each floor. The third building is supposed to have 100 basement levels!

It will be anything but easy.

I figured the inside would be ridiculous, haha. I have never played a metal gear game. I hope they include creative mode in the next update so you don't have to mine all of that material!

I've officially begun constructing Outer Heaven in Minecraft and I've hit my first obstacle.

I realized that my world didn't have a sufficiently large enough desert, so I'm building one. Block by block.

I'm about 25% or so finished with the desert. I've only managed to make it this far already with the help of friends and the duplication glitch.

I'll keep posting updates as Outer Heaven inches (and I do mean inches) to completion.

oh youre using the dupe thing... :(

then again, i guess youd need to until creative mode drops.

post pics when its recognizable ok?

i want to see what you come up with bro.

I've just "broken ground" on Building One of Outer Heaven. The exterior is nearly finished and now I'll begin work on the very big, very complex interior.

I've just finished the exterior of the first building. Took me forever, mostly due to the fact that I had little to no help.

Now I take on the MUCH harder challenge of doing the interior. I'm gonna need LOTS of iron blocks...

I'd be happy to help if you want. I was actually thinking about doing this too. Was there a certain seed you used to help the natural layout?

I used "Shadow Moses" as my seed. Contrary to my hopes and dreams for it, it's mostly woodland biomes with a few beaches and only a small portion of the map dedicated to snowy/mountainous terrain.

While I appreciate the offer, I work better alone. I'll definitely let you know as soon as it's done, though, so you can check it out.

As for a status update, Outer Heaven is coming along nicely. I'm in the process of completing building one and will "break ground" on building two soon.

The recent removal of the duplication glitch will slow me down a bit, as I have PLENTY of resources for completing building one, but none whatsoever at the moment for building two, three or the massive walled perimeter that goes around the fortress.

I won't stop, though. It'll just take longer than anticipated.
