If you had to pick one, do you want a 2D or 3D mission generator?

So for ArmA, and ArmA2, we've had a 2D mission creator, and there have been some mentions that people are wanting a 3D mission editor in arma3. What are your thoughts?

There already is a 3D editor with Arma 2, its not 100% functional but you can do a lot in it already.


PS:
I first didnt read your post correct and changed the poll but I have removed my edit again.

It will be easier with certain things to use the 2D editor, while the 3D is great for placing units and objects precisely where you want them. So I'd like a button on each so you can switch to the other on the fly.

Also, you think they'll include a real-time editor setting for mission makers on multiplayer or otherwise?

you can activate the 3D-Editor in ArmA II, when you press Alt+E in the main menu.

i think we need a full costless 3D-Editor to create vehicles and weapons and units.

I wish there was an option in the poll for 'both'.

A 3D editor is a must. We really need it for placing units and objects really effectively in towns/villages.

The problem with a purely 3D editor and no 2D editor, is that we'd lose the 2D editors useful advantage of being able to quickly place units all over the map. In 3D we'd be constantly taking ages to move from one area to the other. Plus we'd lose the advantage of having a clearer idea of where the units are in relation to each other.

So I vote for both.

Should have a button so you can switch to 3D when you want, for example placing units on buildings. would be much easier

As long as it is more user friendly than the current Editor I don't mind either way. So I vote both.

Sorry for a little off-top:
What about scripting in ArmA ]I[? Is ArmA II commands list and syntax will be compatible?

And 2 dimentional editor will be enough. For example in ArmA II I'm using: 2D Editor, Notepad++ and RTEditor (unofficial 3D Editor working like addon).

While a 3d editor would be neat, I would have to vote for the 2d one, simply because ive gotten so used to it from OFP/ARMA/ARMA2. If they switched to a 3d editor, I would have to learn the controls and such all over again :-P .

Honestly I forgot about the 3d editor in arma 2 and have been having trouble placing units in bulidings, I guess the problem is solved. I think the 2d and 3d editors both have there advantages. To me both are great but if I had to choose I would go 2D
