Thanks for the questions so far guys... Just curious, what do you think of the battle cry feature?
Not a bad idea I think (I like it)
My questions to Daniel are:
-Like Brandon_2535 asked What is the maximum number of players?
-Will the map editor be as big as the one in Far Cry 2?
-Can you use the ziplines in the map editor (and in the MP)?
-Is there a predator mode? (would be nice)
anyway I hope the multiplayer is going to be awsome...
-Custom Gametype Editor (maybe something along the lines of Halo)?
-Waterfalls placeable in Map editor? And, at that, does water interact dynamically with obstructions?
-Objects in Editor that you can interact with (doors, levers, etc.)?
-Is it possible to place weapons on the map and combine it with weapons loadouts (a la Halo: Reach)?
-Finally, can we expect the ability to place bots or simple enemies into the editor to make SP missions?
And yes, I actually really like the battle cry feature, it'll be a nice bonus to being around teammates rather than going lone wolf.
Thank you for forwarding any questions we have, we appreciate it. Rock on.

Sorry but I have a lot to ask so maybe 1 or 2 of my many questions might get answered.
After reading the info at the bottom of this post I have this question.
How will you combat the Rating Of Maps because it did not work in FC2, My initial thoughts are to only ever allow One Vote per person, for any one map but if a player has an issue with another map maker they could place a negative vote which in turn would affect the rating of their map.
It is hard to actually get a fool proof system and as you will know Far Cry can be a jealous game at times with some players creating big issues with others over who's is the best User Made Map rather then just enjoying and playing them for what they are.
There is a mention of Social Networking and the Map Editor been connected, can anyone elaborate on this - Will we get something like in Halo where they can queue up user made maps to download when they go online?
Please say that an author can actually lock his / her map so that others can not edit and claim it as their own if the Original Author wishes this, but also allow COOP Maps to be create and sent to/from those involved by un-ticking a Lock Map Icon
Game designer Daniel Berlin has confirmed that the level/map editor from Far Cry to will return with expanded community features and will be a “fresh take”.
We’re enhancing it, we’re making it easier for players to find maps.
There are going to be ways for players to rate maps so if you create a really good map that map is going to be rated up and get a lot of visibility and a lot of people are going to play it.”
