Gun emplacements
Industrial machinery in rusted and prestine condition
Varied bridges

Yeah of course. Far Cry 2 has a fantastic map editor and Operation flashoint Elite on the xbox had a great mission editor so it definately doable.

Far Cry on the XBox also had a map editor and RSE demonstrated it and the video of it is around here somewhere.

As much as i would like to see any kind of editor for the console version. I just find it way to hard to believe they would.

If you ask me, i think they all need to add in some kind of editor in all games. One reason why i think PC will forever rule, becuase even if it don't have a editor its still moddable in some form! As for GR for console yes a editor at least a CooP editor would go for miles on a improvment. As for now all my hopes are in [Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising] for this editor deal.

For me the map editor in Far Cry 2, was better than the game. It is the way that map editors should be done... excellent A+.

The game (multiplayer) not so much...

Very good map editors for consoles can be done right and Ubisoft has proven it with Far Cry 2.

Id love to see what the RSE guys could do with the Far Cry 2 editor. Better still I'd like to see what they could do with an updated Dunia engine.

How do map editors work out on a XBOX 360 anyway? Seems like making a map would be a pain with the keypad. One of the few benefits the PC brings to gaming is the ability to have 100's of keys to use and ofc the mouse!

If it does right then map editors can be very user friendly. Far Cry 2 has a great map editor. With it I made this map

Its actually impressive what you can do with that editor. Does xbox live not have some rules regarding user generated content? I vaguely remember there were some issues with Unreal Tournament.

MS problem with generated content is only if its made outside of the x360 itself. So they dont want people maken mods on PC and bring them to the console. However they fine with the editor and/or a mod maker right on the game disc. They don't want to open up the x360 to outside mods to prevent cheating that can come from it. If they keep it to editing to whats on the game disc only. Its stopping you from adding in extra code to cheat.

However as much as i can see why they do it. I don't fully agree with them. I'm a PC gamer too and i would like to add in my own maps and mods as wanted to any game. So until this changes we have to hope more devs step up and add in editors to there games! So its not a total loss. There has been afew games picking up on editors and there is afew more coming out. Its slim, but they are out there and still more coming. Far Cry 2 just happens to be the must advanced right now. Hope more fellow suit!

Also add ability to:

Set sight range of individual enemies.
Set damage model for each weapon ( mounted 50cals should be absolutely lethal and terrifying ).
Set stance of individual enemies.
Set alert status of individual enemies.
Set patrol paths for individual enemies.
Set flight paths for planes and helos.
Set insertion location and method.
Set hidden objectives.
Set triggered objectives.
Set explosions ( airstrike/artillery/stationary bomb ) locations relative to time or event/location triggers.
Set civilian locations and paths.
Set civilians as hostages.

Add the abilities to copy and pastes created assets to maps, so that i can create a tank asset and a battleship asset and a jet asset in seperate maps and copy them into one map.
