Well, like You unlock the place, you explore around a bit, and you find a strange runed wall somewhere deep in the temple, you notice an ancient contraption in this room perhaps using those ecco's you could find a way to activate this contraption. once the thing is activated the runed wall glows and either crumbles or slides down or up or disappearing entirely.
Beyond this wall theres a long hallway or stairs going deeper into the temple and THEN a long dark hallway or something, filled with feral crystal slimes or something. once they've been taken care of one way or another, beyond is a large room with a giant stone carving of a..hm, Pink slime i guess :/ anyways-in the center of the room.
On all four corners of the room there will be..hmm..colored beams of light corresponding to a particular slime like Rad Green, Boomer Red, Phosphor white, and Tarr black, (somehow you'd have to get a tarr all the way over here and put it into its beam.) (idk)
Once thats done all four slimes spin and disappear into sparkles or something stupid and the stone slime in the center of the room starts to shake causing a slight but quick tremor in the earth, the stone slime starts to rise releasing long sealed air as it rises with a PSHHT!!. It rises and reveals an ancient artifact that you could take back to the Blueprint machine to have it scanned. once done a new upgrade will be available for you vacc gun or Boots or whatever. yah know something neat.
Boom slimes, Rocks Slimes, No Pain No gain.
