Far Cry 3 Map Editor -First Impressions.

#1 Posted by alexmackay12345 (3 posts) -
Having became one of the few people to receive the game before release I feel proud to be able to voice my opinion on the map editor first. So very blandly, here is what I make of it. Pros -Lighting -Better Water -Better Storms -Caves Cons -No Vehicles -No AI -No Gun Turrets -Everything is rusty -No Modular Building components (Items which can be used to make a lot of other structures i.e. the Colonial Walls on FC2 and the large concrete panels) -No Non-shanty Houses. -No Windows -No Snow or similar atmospheric conditions, just tropics -Limited objects in map grid areas (Similar to FC2 but I heard it had been removed) -No Zip-lines -Smaller Overall Map Thank you Ubisoft. The years of development have helped me develop my map editing skills from Savannah based maps to Tropics based maps. At least we can now have caves and lights, even with losing Vehicles and all that.

Wierd, I've seen videos on youtube which include people driving around on vehicles?

I thought the new map editor trailer said that it included inserting AI into maps?

I'm not convinced our OP here knows the full ins and outs of the map editor.

The trailer says something about a "single player sandbox" mode for the editor. It shows AI and vehicles in it, but I cant tell if you can play it with friends or if its just for one person to play. If the only place you can insert vehicles and AI is in a single player bot match experience, I find that extremely stupid and almost worthless.

Right gents, what I mean is you CAN put the vehicles and AI onto the map, but it can't be verified for multiplayer as far as I'm aware. For me this means no AI slaughter with your friends while driving around on quadbikes.

Man wtf is the point of making a single player bot match with vehicles? I can see messing around with a friend and a bunch of bots, but by yourself is kind of lame...

I've been screwing around in the map editor for a few days. There are definitely viehicles and AI. You can place enemies and weapons and vehicles and animals and all that good stuff. No idea what OP is talking about.

As somebody who grew up playing BF1942, you're on crack.

You can place them in the editor but you can't verify and publish the map. You can only play with AI and vehicles alone.

Oh, okay. I haven't tried verifying or publishing anything.

I played tons of bf1942 and bf vietnam. Playing alone with bots is lame compared to playing multiplayer, in those games and any other. Not to mention I doubt FC3 is going to allow over 50 bots in a huge scale battle like bf1942.

There is a lot of things that are cons that should be pros, like vehicles, ai, but there is more things that should be added to cons, as limited vehicles, ai ( people and wildlife),
