What is map editor?

I have never played a Far Cry game. Why is this map editor feature such a big deal?

I had a 500 topic about politics on the Battlefield 3 board.

Map editor part of other far cry games. Map editor important for people who like it.

The editor allows players to "edit" / create their own maps for us in MP.

You can edit the terrain, insert objects, buildings, game functions(spawn, flag spawn and so on) and create your own maps from an empty template. In the past people have created very strange and cool stuff.

Hopefully it will be included in FC3...

Exactly what Oey666 said. Instead of having 12-15 multiplayer maps like COD/Halo and then a few DLC packs, we get infinite maps because people like me will ALWAYS be making new maps. Even when the multiplayer community dies.

You can't group Halo in that category because they have Forge.  There are new maps every week in community games.

I hope the online community will last longer this time.... FarCry 2 lasted maybe 3 months, and it wasn't all that fun with such HUGE maps.

The main reason for that was the multiplayer in general being very bland. No matter what map you made, people still played the same way. It took away a lot of creativity from map makers. To fix that, we either need weapon placement back, or a way to make very detailed gametypes(or preferably both).
