I want to buy a new copy of fc and can't find it at the local stores. So I'm thinking about downloading it from IGN {$9.99}. Does anyone know if the downloaded versions have the sandbox editor as well? I would assume they do but I wanted to make sure before I do.

Thanks

If its from Direct2Drive, then a big no. I see D2D build issues every week, mainly arounf playing with 1.4 and also using SB.

Yea. I downloaded it and installed it and sandbox doesn't work. Comes up with an error, then closes.

I checked over on the ubi forums and it appears that I'm not the only one having the same problem with this release.

I wrote ubi tech support about it. They said they couldn't help me with issues concerning sandbox because it is against their policy to help anyone modify or alter the game.:confused: What a crock!

Doesn't that make this false advertisement?

Create Your Own Slice Of Paradise - Build your own maps, reconstruct game levels, and switch from editing to playing on the fly with the unbelievably intuitive Sandbox Editor.

How can I reconstruct game levels without modifying the game? How can I do anything if Sandbox doesn't work at all?:confused:

Guess I waisted my money. Think I can get a refund from Direct2Drive? :lol: Thank goodness it was only 9.95.

well it doesn't make it false advertisement. What it makes it is: They have a warning on there somewhere stating they do not support the sandbox and it's use or misuse is " as is condition". :( that is why, you always purchase the hard copies and never download.

now THAT is horrible. they should have a download of just the editor. After what happened to you i'm never using d2d. that doesn't make sense that "they wouldn't want to alter the game."
