Map Info:
This adventure map is based on the game Payday: The Heist. It features 3 playable heists and 1 bonus level, which should take 1-2 hours depending on play style. The map also includes Item shops, Custom mobs, 23 Achievements, hidden secrets & Easter eggs, all within high quality builds.

I started this map about a year ago but had to stop due to limitations of Minecraft but thankfully we had the Redstone update (Thanks Mojang :) which allowed me to finish it within a month. I dedicate this map to the Minecraft community, My family & friends and last but not least the YouTube community.

You could use any pack but this is the one i created the map with.

I started without a note too

Are you playing in the correct version? If your playing in a version above 1.6.4 it can damage or corrupt the map because of when it was created and how the code was built up at the time. If you are playing in an incorrect version please reinstall the map and play on 1.6.4 if you are on the correct version then I would still recommend reinstalling the map because this map is still very old and has not been updated for years. (2013 time)

+1 some guy If anyone does not receive the note at the start of the game, just take one of the item frames from the elevator and use that instead. I had that problem and that is how I fixed it. It does not break the map or mess anything up
