Pleased to meet you. I'm a gamer myself (that's why I've done this mad thing!), so want to be there to answer questions directly - not some faceless company like most of the games companies out there!
I see what you mean about that text. But the very next line, he says "Even better, you can also upload then share your own maps! Here are a couple I pulled into my iPad 3."
What I'm "hoping" is that over time my community will submit loads of maps for mods and other games to the MapLocker. My initial focus was admittedly FPS, RTS, MMO etc where you don't have such nice mapping tools built in, and the maps are smaller (ArmA being the largest by far but also it has by far the best in-game mapping tool!). But of course it's a 'simulation tool', expanding your hardware, so it's suitable for any team game (or even real world games like paintball or tabletop wargaming).
If you know anyone that can provide maps they would be willing to make available to me, then I could add some flight sims to my list
Eh there GP / Mark.
I haven't got the ap yet but I'm very interested in it. The fact you're down here in the trenches with us means a lot- nice work.
As for where I got the impression it wasn't compatible it was from this part of the review:
You then go to the "MapLocker" where you can download maps for a number of games, currently including these first-person shooters:
• Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare + Pack
•Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 + Packs
•Call of Duty: Black Ops
•Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
•Battlefield 3 + Back to Karkand
•Battlefield Bad Company 2 + Map Pack
•Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
Besides first person shooters, some RTS games and MMO maps are available.
Sort of made it look like you had to download only the maps that were listed above- but now I understand that what the reviewer MEANT to say was more to the tune of "you can download your own map or use one pre-packaged in the ap- including"
Glad to stand corrected!
