Is there any chance for a map editor in future?

Custom maps would be a great addition once the game is released, it would also increase the lifetime of the game for many gamers, and for free 2 play a long lifetime is a good thing.
If you would be able to give the community a map editor we could create a huge amount of maps for the game, it just would need an alternative game mode in the game where only chosen (from you accepted, to have quality standart) custom maps are running.

like i wrote,

They could upload user maps on their server to make the maps available for everybody. Its not much work compared to the content they would recieve that way.
In Vietcong we had endless user created maps, new good content was generated every month.
If you start the game today, these maps are running more often then the overused standart maps.

Survarium is story based. The locations need to fit in with the lore of the game. So unfortunately, player designed locations will not be possible.

Lol... They would have to upload every single map to the servers... And everyone has to download them.

@above
Yep that's so unbelievable funny that you have to download and upload every map... god damnit how could we handle this with our 56k modems. It was working fine in games of the year 2000, but how could we manage this today, it's impossible, no question.

To have 5-10 different maps is realy much better, then downloading new ones all the time, what the hell i'm thinking..

Thanks joe for figuring this out, i'm not sure what you have planned with the story elements, but are they also take influence at the gametype we have at the moment?
