StarCraft II: Q&A Round 30, Map Maker Series
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The 30th Q&A focusing on answers to fan questions about StarCraft II, Blizzard Entertainment's long awaited sequel to the original StarCraft, is now available. This edition of the Q&A is the second to focus on the map making tools planned for inclusion with the game. SC II will introduce new multiplayer action and a continuation of the storyline.

1) Will it be possible to code the game so map makers can make maps where people can stop incoming spell/missile?
This should be possible through customized ability data and/or triggers.

2) Will we have selectable male/female of every unit?
No, we don't have plans to include male and female versions of each unit.

3) Will we have the option to give players the option to change weapons in-game?
While we don't have any plans for a specialized interface for this, it would be possible using the highly flexible ability system.

8) Will mapmakers have the ability to set weather that can change the terrain and interrupt gameplay for players? Is this for anywhere or in a specific location?
Weather effect technology has not yet been finalized. However, even if weather effects do not affect gameplay normally, it would be possible to drive both the desired weather effects and associated gameplay effects through triggers.
