Having the editor install with the game is definitely the right way to do it. It's the simplest and most accessible way to do things.
As for me, I usually start playing around with the editor once I'm comfortable with the game mechanics and the way the game works in general, which takes a little under a week.
Yeah I just hope the editor isn't to complicated because I would like to learn more about mapping.
