Far Cry 3 Map Creator Detailed

How would you like to design your own video game level? Well, it seems like Ubisoft will be giving players the opportunity to show-off their designing skills in the upcoming Far Cry 3 installment. How will do that? Simple, in a video released by Ubisoft via press release, Level Design Director Mark Thompson reveals the creative side of Far Cry 3: the in-game Map Editor! (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Ubisoft Montreal, Xbox 360)

if its something like the creation kit for skyrim, this is going to be one heck of a game for pc.

What will break it or make it. Is a bigger collection of basic meshes. That's what FC2 lacked, basic walls, doorways, windows etc... U had to use other meshes in weird ways to get the effect you wanted.

A map designer eh? For a game that looks this good? This I have to see.

That Vaas guy is sexy.
On another note...this whole idea of giving players a chance to build their own landscape is an amazing idea. I love thw fact that the content will be free.

Multiplayer maps can be rated and shared I believed eventually if it reaches gold then your map can become official.

unfortunately no maps with ai or vehicles will be allowed as multiplayer maps, those you will only be able to play by yourself (although PC players might be able to take the individual file out of the bin folder and share, not sure though).

So essentially if you create your own map and load it with ai then yes you can, but you cant take someone elses map and do the same.

There's already quite a few good YouTube videos showing the ins and outs of the map editor. Should add a good amount of fun and longevity to what already sounds like a great game.

If the game ends up having good gameplay and a real open editor then I agree - but worth noting that Farcry 2 had a map editor too and look how that went.
Not supporting AI bots in mp is a shame as bots are useful to create a full player server till it fills up with human players.
Unreal Tournament (99) is a great example of the effect of having a full map editor with AI bots; there's over 200,000 user created maps and even 13 years after game launch there's still plenty of game servers with a mix of AI bots and human players.

I've never played a Far Cry game before. I own Far Cry 2, but...just haven't picked it up yet. I'm planning on doing so when the holiday break sets in for me. Then, when the price goes drops, I'll pick up Far Cry 3. I'm already occupied by an endless number of games as it is. But I don't wanna skip Far Cry 3. From early reviews, it looks to be one of the best games this year!

You can't play your custom maps online if I'm not mistaken. To me it renders an amazing editor pretty limited.
