Please could you see if the devs can remove Carvers Coast from Featured, the map suffered an issue where the road was removed when switching from the Beta Editor to Retail Editor.
The issue is that the map looks awful with that road gone and in place of it in some areas there are palm trees right slap bang in the middle of where the road was so not good for driving end to end.

I am grateful it was featured but it is a bitter pill seeing this broken version and I would rather see a map on there that is worthy, I have already published the map for PC with what is the fixed version.

Carvers Coast TDM FC (https://far-cry-arcade.ubi.com/en-us/pc/map/5ac79e1516ae8f7d1c2043b3)

You can add the PC version to your Favorites at the link above, Unfortunately at work right now but will Re-Edit and fix the PS4 and XB1 versions sometime tomorrow.
So hopefully this map will get pulled from Featured list and someone else's map will take that spot.

Just wanting to point out that I didn't put any of those shared spawns in those positions, I wouldn't put them out in the open like that all vulnerable, I can only imagine that it will be a horrible playing experience spawning there and people selecting the 50.Cal in load-outs so expect a lot of spawn killing.


Can't bare the sight of those trees in the middle of the road like that, the road somehow didn't port over and in it's place those trees popped up.

Also I wouldn't put a spawn out there in a position like that with no protection, once the vehicles moves it never spawns back there (as vehicles don't respawn) so that spawn then is in the open waiting in the sights of a sniper so not a good place to put it.

The image above shows 4 areas - 2 of those in the central (sea / mountain area) have shared spawns and at each base 1 Red / 1 Blue so the players can use a wing-suit and fly into the map at speed, No Fall Damage is on so you can slam into terrain, this I was hoping would make the map more fun and interesting because once those vehicles are destroyed it will be boring and long on foot - I had one sniper rifle in the central building where the road is, that was set to respawn every 40 seconds, this way whoever gets there first can get some kills for earning it but at the same time there are 2 bunkers close to that building which have shared spawns in so you would not be safe camping in that building with the 50.Cal.

So if you are on PC the version to play is this one HERE (https://far-cry-arcade.ubi.com/en-gb/pc/map/5ac79e1516ae8f7d1c2043b3)(So far it has no plays at all) :)

I will update the PS4 and XB1 versions today so will remove all those shared spawns, remove the 50.Cal's from load-outs - place spawns back where they originally were, add in the road and check everything over.

Ubisoft if you can take that map Carvers Coast down from Featured I really would appreciate it, I can not play the version you put up it is broken and isn't the vision I had for the map as I wanted to avoid a snipe fest and camp fest which to me with the spawns and load-outs added that is what has potentially been created, so please remove it and feature someones map who only cares about map statistics and has an ego the size of a planet because I have pride in my work and really don't want my name associated with a broken map that has bad spawn placement.

I re-published Carvers Coast for PS4 - This was my vision of how the map should have looked and played.

Finally i am able to show you guys my first FC5 assault map. I map for almost 2 decades
so i am not new to this but this editor was new to me. What a great tool to play with.

I made this map as i am used to do, as big and spectacle as possible. Its a linear map that
takes at least 45 minutes to finish. Best is you watch my trailer so you can see all aspects
of this new map, or watch at least the screens, if your interested that is.
A huge shame is the miss of not being able to add save points, so when the player dies he
has to start over from scratch. Which is a downside to huge maps.

Hope you like the info, if you do then please play the map here;


















Hope you have the time to play it, and have FUN!
