Devs answer questions about multiplayer, editor, and more....
Devs are answering questions on the Official Far Cry 3 forums...just in case anyone wants more info.
(Q) - Will there be an official community map playlist/ playlists with none of the progression differences (if there are any) of unranked private matches? If this option were to exist, will there be a system in place to make sure the best user maps are discovered and featured in this playlist?
What this also means is to expect a lot of unfiltered content. There will be a LOT of assets. In fact, there is so many of them we will likely not be able to perfectly review and categorize each individual object and make sure it is easily usable. But this also means there will be plenty of hidden gems to be found, and creativity will once again be the key to success. We are confident the community will be able to manage this amount of content over time, and figure out the best usage patterns.
(Q) - You mentioned having a big selection of pre built buildings being available in the editor (Which I love hearing). You don't have to get detailed as I'm sure it will be announced in detail later, but will there also be building block type items for building our own buildings? (stand alone Walls/floors/windows/etc.)
(Q) - The horrible see through and invisible pieces in the editor from FC2 (when you look underneath them) have you done anything with those or are items the same in FC3?
(A) - I must admit I have not seen any of these, the FC map community always keeps surprising me. It does sound interesting. I think there are a lot of different purposes behind map making, whether it be for a game mode, artistic creation, alternative gameplays, messing around, etc. I hope we will be able to better categorize these different needs in the future so that people can find the type of content they're looking for, while remaining flexible enough for all the creativity that springs up.
Q) - About the Battle-Cry, it has possibilities IF you can keep your team together. But that's not the nature of the beast for consoles, just too many randoms. Are you concerned that this team perk will become a frustrating barrage of airstrikes by organized teams? Also, is there any way players could abuse Battle-Cry by boosting?

I'm glad they answered some questions about the editor. I can safely say it's a definite buy just from what was said there. I was a little worried about the vehicle removal, but it sounds like other than that we still get everything else from FC2 and more.
Well Im not gonna get Black Ops 2 this year, since I just discovered Far Cry 2, on my PS3 and Im loving it. But Im gonna get Far Cry 3 for the Xbox, because I cant stand FPS games on the PS3. I cant wait for this, Day One Buy.

Thanks for posting this info. I'm mostly glad about what they said about the editor. A few map editor highlights:
1) Object count will be so ridiculously high they can't even properly categorize all of them!
2) Same size maps as FC2.
3) Weather and Time of Day options are back.
4) Zip lines are not yet confirmed like I thought they were.
5) No map editing coop.
6) NO NEED FOR OCCLUSION BLOCKS ANYMORE!!
7) It's LIKELY that we'll get lighting options in the editor but they'll be expensive.

Mostly good news. The tattoo thing is interesting, but it sucks for people that want some form of customization without tattoos. Why no sleeves or gloves or rings or wristbands or something? That seemed more obvious than tattoos.
This is my super "secret" board. Keep out.
Cool, that definitely makes it sound better than that first vid a couple weeks ago.

I wish one of the questions asked them about how they reacted to the extremely negative reaction of the exclusion of vehicles.
