Remake of the old Blizzard map "Blistering Sands" as part of the "Better than Blizzard" Map Challenge on TeamLiquid's mapping forums No offense meant by the title, it's just about remaking older maps to fit today's meta. :)

Those rocks near the fourth seem a bit arbitrary, unless they aren't destructible.

Otherwise, it's a great looking map, and could make for an interesting competition.

Those aren't rocks. It's highground with rock doodads on it. I can see how it would look that way though.

That makes more sense.

I'd have made it look less like destructible rocks, but it seems fine otherwise.

Hey, nice! You stole my idea! I probably wasn't going to get around to it anyways. Always had a problem that the map had a back door were the third should have been, so I guess here we go.
The maps esthetics are actually real nice, which is something a lot of map makers on these forums forget about.
Not so sure about the extra 4th/5th base. Makes that area of the map kind of cramped. Would have put a gold base in the maps center basin (were half of the minerals and gas are on either side of the core structure). Whatever; you beat me to it. GG

This is a slight aesthetic update only, just to make the ground less flat, which more closely resembles the original.
