View Full Version : Far Cry 5 Map Editor - Features (Wishes)

11-26-2017, 10:15 PM
These are not wishes like "More weapons, more objectives, more settings" ((This) (https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1674239-Map-Editor-Wishlist-n-stuff-Forums)guy has more of that) but more of a general size and features of the map editor itself.

Let me know if you agree or disagree with any of them :D

1. People will not be able to download other's maps and just re-upload them as their own work. (Downloading/Editing is fine)
- Nobody likes to see 500 copies of the same map in the map browser
- Or at least make it an option when you publish a map if you want your map to be able to be stolen or not.
- Why is this even a thing..?

2 Longer titles
- I feel like 20 characters aren't enough. If the text is too long, it could scroll once the map is highlighted.

3[B/] Map description
- I feel like this should have been added back in FC2 or 3.

[B]4. Bigger world size
- I hope the world size will be increased, not only for PC but for consoles too, I'm afraid it might be the same size or smaller because of the upgraded textures/animations might take a toll on consoles.

5. Bigger object limit / not reduced. (Consoles)
- The FC4 object limit on consoles was frustratingly small on consoles, and since FC5 has higher resolution on textures, I hope it won't be an even smaller limit. (Same point as above)
- PC version got a way bigger limit, almost endless, which is why I added "(Consoles)"

6. Being able to delete or update your published maps in case you found a bug/glitch that you would like to fix.

7. This might be an unrealistic, but yet awesome thing: Coop feature, create maps together with your friend, an entirely different post about it (here (https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1794956-Far-Cry-5-COOP-Map-Editor-(Idea)?p=13134445#post13134445))

"4. Bigger world size + 5. Bigger object limit / not reduced. (Consoles)"

These issues are pretty much solved on consoles nowadays. Or are at least no longer hold back what you would see in a PC due to console limitations. AAA games are now running 64 player battlefield games with reasonable levels of graphical fidelity. There is no reason Far Cry 5 can't have 8v8 multiplayer maps as we saw in FC2 from the standpoint of limitations of console capability not matching what PC can deliver.

FC5 is already confirmed to have 6v6 MP and 2p coop. 8v8 aint happening, unfortunately.

You might be right, but how is it "solved"? Far Cry 4 is on next-gen consoles, and the map editor map-limit is quite small on consoles. Its not about the amount of players on a map, it's about the size/limitations of the map creator itself, e.g size in KM and object limits. Also, Far Cry 5 will be on the same console, so it might not be bigger at all.

It wasn't console limitation but UbiMontreal going for radical changes in the Dunia Engine and leaving the netcode to a different team (Massive Entertainment). The fall of Far Cry 3 MP changed the course and focus of Far Cry 4.
The team working on Far Cry 5 has all the luxury of focusing only on last-gen so there is a big advantage.

You're right, I didn't realize FC4 existed on PS3 as well. Now my hopes are back up :p
