Steps to activate Far Cry 3 Map Editor
Open up Windows Explorer and visit the directory in which you have Far Cry 3 installed. If you installed in the default location, this would probably be:

If you installed Far Cry 3 through Steam, this is the location you have to go to:
- [highlight]C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Far Cry 3\bin[/highlight]
If you don’t know the location of your Far Cry 3 installed files, just right click on the Far Cry 3 shortcut icon and click on “Open File Location” which should get you there.
Once you’re in the Bin directory, look for a file called [highlight]FC3Editor[/highlight]. Double click on this file and you’re set. Enjoy. Don’t get lost in the jungle though.
