Beside an interesting interview of the Map Editor with Clint Hocking...

ZitatClint Hocking

Well Far Cry PC had an SDK, and Far Cry on the consoles had their in-game map editor. We looked at what was already existing, looked at what worked, and took it from there. We looked a lot at what the map makers, the very people who have spent countless hours in the map editor, have stated they’d like to see. There were many great ideas floating around, and it was just a matter of implementing what we could. While it isn’t possible for us to release a full SDK, the actual tools that our own level designers use are similar to what is in the map editor, such as Realtree and the collection system, which uses an algorithm to place foliage in a way that you’d naturally see in the environment. There are also tools in the map editor that didn’t exist in for our own team, and when they saw the tools they said, “We want this to build OUR maps!” Even after spending so many hours making the stock FC2 maps, some of our level designers spend their lunchtime playing in the map editor, so I think that’s really a testament to how robust the map editor truly is.

...the developers are also talking about a patch on VG247, which should add predator animals after the game relesae with a patch or something like this.

Furthermore you get the chance to win an exclusive Far Cry 2Far Cry 2 presentation in Ubisoft Montreal on the 17th and 18th September. You only have to visit this page and have to fill in these things within one week! Good Luck!
