    Also, I see on the more general patch notes posted in the Announcements forum that more assets will be added to the Arcade as well, whatever they may be.

    Thank you for the updates.

    Two things that are not mentioned which are massive.

    1. Selecting a map to be played then it switching to a map the picker never selected
    2. Camera Auto Scroll set to OFF not working (I really hope one day you guys will address this it will make life a lot simpler / faster / easier when working correctly)

    Really glad I can look at using those new terrain decals now that they will work when the map is published.

    This is good news for Arcade people were not wanting to publish maps due to the terrain hole bug, moving terrain paint and some of the other minor issues which hopefully you have fixed so brilliant - Thanks.

    you're house!
    This is great glad to see you guys are keeping up the updates and fixing the game, I would like to add a couple issues I noticed in the editor that would be great if they were fixed in the future, one of the issues is the selection tool, say you make a custom vehicle or you have a custom detailed house you built well when you try to select it to move it it only lets you grab up to 80 objects so I makes it impossible to move custom vehicles and buildings you've made, this was never a problem in previous far cry games you could grab the entire map if you wanted to and move it, second issue would be the camera auto scroll you can go into map editor settings and turn it off and it still doesn't work, those are the main issues I can think of in the editor at this point, there's another issue as well you guys need to get rid of the seven second spawn Shield it's ruining a lot of maps especially small Maps, also I have a question will we be getting the AI weapons and vehicles with this update? Some of you guys that work over at Ubisoft were streaming not too long ago and someone asked if we would be getting the AI weapons and vehicles from the DLC and you guys said we would in the next update? Anyways you guys are doing a good job keeping up with the game keep up the great work

    Still need to shorten the 7 sec invincibility shield on respawn. It's ruining the experience on 95% of the maps including most of your featured ones.

    yes the selection tool could use some tuning- custom builds when repositioned move about some pieces - its annoying to have to fix them afterwards...
    don't mind the 7 sec rule cuz i'm not making meat grinder maps.... i suggest and option to set spaw invinc timing within the editor

    also I suggest a maximum of 20 or so placement explosives renderable with infinite ammo on because map mites (a$$h0L3$) can add lagg to our maps!!
    they were building trees of explosives that nearly crashed the map and I was running around trying to destroy them all, a challenge when your solo vs 6 mites

    also make the lock-on stronger for the guided rockets so as to keep the use of heli's in check- I personally love ponin' noobs like this but I also feel its kind of unfair if there is now way to shoot em down!!

    Sad and disappointing no extra/new gamemodes are coming.
    Was really hope for this in FC5. Or announcement during E3 in this direction.

    Would also help the player count in Arcade on PC, cause people are leaving.
    Mostly because TDM all the time becomes boring after while ...

    So Ubi, give us some objective gamemodes (CTF of Domination modes) to freshen up the PvP !!!

    This is even more important than lobby system at this moment ...
