I'm going to have a Brood War LAN party and may end up playing some team games, mostly just teams of 2.

Are there any map packs for Brood War with maps similar to Starcraft 2 where team start positions are close/connected?

Thank you.

    Note that maps with connected bases were extremely uncommon in Brood War. Though the listed maps were used in 2v2 play professionally, I can't recall any of them with connected mains. – Decency Dec 18 '13 at 18:58

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about map recommendations. – Frank Dec 18 '13 at 20:19

    I don't think it is off-topic since it is asking for maps with start positions close by, and is about a video game. – jacen.garriss Dec 18 '13 at 21:42

Well, shucks. If this question is acceptable here, then it should be answered even if it is four years old.

I know of one such map which has been available since September 2010. The name is Greater Chucktropolis, and it has 8 spawn locations. Layout makes it good for 4v4, but the connected bases can support 2v2v2v2 at most. So, you could do 2v2 and have a total of 4 bases. The spawn locations are near enough to share defenses in those pairs.
I've only messed around on it with the computer players, so I can't say that I've tested it at all. The designer is the same person who did Chex Quest, if that means anything to you.

I hope the LAN party went well.
