Call of Duty Map Creator

This seems to be one of the most wanted features of Call of Duty fans. The ability to create a map and upload it so that others can play it too. We all love playing online but the maps start to get old after a few hundred times. So, instead of having to wait for new maps packs to be offered, how about a map creator? (Call of Duty, PS3, Xbox 360)

Nice idea but like you said people will say Activision will not want to loose money and this is true.A map editor is counter productive if you are releasing DLC maps. Far Cry 2 had an excellent map editor but a map pack was never released because the community make them now. The only way Activision can get round this is then to release other type of DLC like weapons and skins but I am not sure if this would be a profitable. Map editors (in this sense) are going the way of the dodo because it hinders profits.

There was map editors right up until Modern Warfare 1, they let you build maps from scratch using the models and textures within the game or ones you made yourself.

You essentially just outlined the basic functions of a map editor and called it your idea, put a little bit more thought into it next time :) don't just flesh out "I want a map editor" with useless fluff.

@MMOGames

Have any unique ideas?

I "think" fans would like this option more than waiting on maps to come out every few months. At least this would keep things fresh.

The only way to see a map editor for CoD released would be to monetize it. Activision killed the mod tools to make more money, They will reinstate it only if they make money off of it.

One solution would be to release for free the tools, and allow people to test custom maps locally. If one wants to rent a custom map enabled server, it would cost 50% more than a regular server. That would be 45 bucks instead of 30 for a 32 players server.

This would allow Activision to pump as many DLC they feel like, and players would be able to enjoy custom maps as well. Said players (some of them) will participate in server renting costs.

Guaranteed financial return is the sine qua non condition for Activision to ever consider mod tools again. Play Share Create is not their motto.
