Map editors are amazing tools that most of us dip into once, fiddle with placing some fences, and then call it a day. I know that’s how I approach each and every map editor in any game that has one. My latest creation? A one-ramp skate park in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2…
Some, though, take the time to learn the intricacies of the tools they’re given and go on to make weird and wonderful stuff. LittleBigPlanet is a prime example, as is Media Molecule’s Dreams. But let’s not forget about Far Cry 5 – the Far Cry series in general – as it has been giving players robust toolsets to work with for years.
One Reddit user, Mojoswoptops, has taken the time to create something brilliant in Far Cry 5: the iconic Bates Motel from the horror/drama series of the same name.
Posting an image on Reddit, and then a follow-up video on YouTube, Mojoswoptops shows how they started with a blank canvas before painstakingly recreating the Bates Motel – and all on PS4. I can barely write my name coherently with a DualShock 4, so hats off.
