Droid Factory is a campaign map to skirmish conversion by 1upD for Forces of Corruption (not standard Empire at War).
Like 1upD, I've been disappointed by the dearth of indoor skirmish maps (memories of StarCraft come to mind) and this seems to be an effective remedy to that disappointment. Since the map was originally made by Petroglyph, the visuals are top notch. So let's focus on playability. The conversion was well done, with buildings situated in logical locations. 1upD clearly knows how to set up skirmish maps for FoC correctly and has exemplified his knowledge with this map.
Narrow corridors make artillery vital for any matches played on this map. Geonosian spawn houses have been placed around, giving the map an odd look, but making early game expansion a lot more difficult. Turbolaser towers and build pads have been placed at chokepoints, so rush for the build pads when you can!
Overall, this map is excellent. My only dislike is 1upD's usage of the Geonosian spawn house because its model ruins the look of the map. However, for the sake of not needing a mod, he sacrificed the look for the gameplay and compatibility, and I applaud him for that.
So why are you still reading this? Download! :)
This is a map I made a while back. It's simply a conversion of the Hypori campaign map from Forces of Corruption. It bothered me that none of the indoor maps were used in skirmish or galactic conquest, there were awesome in the campaign. If there are any bugs, I can't remember them. Installation: Just put it in <Forces of Corruption>/data/CustomMaps, and it's ready to go. Just like any other map. Credits: The original map was made by Petroglyph, and it was converted by 1upD.
