My first completed map since my "return" to active modding. Geonosis: Canyon is an attempted remake of my very first map, of the same name. This one does not resemble the original in any way though, featuring new, experimental sides and numerous other gameplay features I learned about since my return.
I've been obsessing over every little detail with this map, to a point where I just had to force myself to consider it good enough, so I could get it released and focus on other projects I'm neglecting. That said, if enough feedback shows some glaring bugs or issues, I'll maybe release an update at some later time.

==INSTALLATION== Place GeoCan in your Gamedata/Addon folder. ==DESCRIPTION== A complete remake of my first ever map of the same name, though it does not resemble the original in any way. There is a log of experimental stuff in here, and some doesn't function as well as I'd like. ==STORY== Several years after the end of the Clone Wars, the former battleground world of Geonosis once again forced its way to the forefront of galactic attention. A hive of rebellous Geonosians, after secretly collecting and reactivating thousands of Separatist battledroids and war machines, had begun restoring their deep underground factories to working order. Imperial agents eventually learned about these activities, but by then the Geonosians had already assembled a significant army, coordinated by a massive droid control mainframe build deep within the planet itself. Their operations no longer secret, the Geonosians lashed-out on the local Imperial Army garrison, quickly slaughtering most of the inexperienced troops. However, one battalion managed to mount an assault on what was believed to be an access point to the mainframe control, but overwhelming droid and local resistance halted this advance. The army unit managed to hold a clearing further up the canyon long enough for reinforcements to arrive; a legion of the Empire's elite Stormtroopers, along with new, top-line equipment. It was time for the Empire to make these bugs wish they'd all died mercifully during the Clone Wars... ==CREDITS== God because in the end, all things are his assets Pysch0fred for the Vehicle Pad texture and misc. assets and information Vyse for the custom sound tutorial Phobos for the music tool Gistech/giftheck for the DLT-19s (and OOM Droid (I think)) Sereja for the DH-17, Blaster Effects AQT for the scaled SBD animations FragMe! for the terrain cutters WhiskeyTangoFoxX for Imperial Officer tirpider for Imperial ATAT Commander DarthD.U.C.K for Unversal Dead Units wsa30h for cross-era sound fix Anyone I missed if you find something of yours in here, please let me know and I will update the credits!
