This map was created shortly after I made my "Plains of Snow '08" map. I personally liked Lost Temple back then and wanted to create a redraw that showed players as much as they can do it with a GUI Editor (and others) that it could be done simply with Staredit. The unfortunate misunderstanding on my part was my map, while playable, was much imbalanced due to the water I created was frozen Ice. This allowed units such as siege Tanks to land and begin bombarding enemy bases which makes the map useless.

Perhaps if someone were to take a look at it, perhaps they can offer some useful suggestions that help improve this once glorified map to a more balanced state. (Mainly looking how to create the Ice into water again, but due to the limitation of the ISOM, it destroys the redrawn doodads/Layout since actual water doesn't match/line up with snow.)

(4)Lost Temple
Size: 128x128

Change it back to jungle and don't edit it.

Well m0n, you probably missed the extra info I added after that quote.

Any other suggestions you could offer?

You can't directly edit the isom tiles if you edited the terrain like that. You'd have to copy/paste water over the ice. But again, the map was already balanced in its previous state. Why redo it in ice terrain? It offers nothing new, except that it's now imbalanced.

you do know I did this in 2008. You did read that part right?

I think I redrew it because I was wanting to do a nice map in Ice Tileset. Why? I dunno, learning how to do ISOM terrain making I suppose! The LT maps have been redone over and over and probably the most redrawn maps in sc1 history!
I just know I enjoy the little things in life, and as this is a very old/outdated/obsolete map, I find myself once again looking for new ideas and simple rules to keep me engaged in a once Big Fav Game I used to play often.
I don't suppose many can come to understand it, but perhaps they can offer some good assistance when they choose to be so kind.

This is a cool concept, seeing a map frozen over, I don't see why the imbalance is a big deal, extremely few maps are tournament-viable anyway, the imbalance just needs to be noted in the map's description, like:
TvT: balanced
ZvP: balanced
ZvZ: balanced
PvP: balanced
TvZ: imbalanced
ZvP: imbalanced
