StarCraft II: Decorative Water, Visible Unit Upgrades
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

StarCraftWire.net has posted the results of an exclusive StarCraft II Q&A session won by french SC II fansite JudgeHype for contributions to the I <3 SC contest. The questions include comments on how water is used in the game and possible visual changes to units based on researched upgrades.

1. Will the editor allow us to have the water surface react to explosions and units passing by?
No, there won't be any physics effects involving water.

2. Will we have the possibility of having units evolve under water in the editor?
Water is only decorative, it won't have any gameplay effects. Units won't be able to go 'under' water. Although, you may be able to simulate this to some extent through triggers and data modification.

3. Will the Ultralisk upgrades change his visual appearance?
Depending on time, we would like to have various upgrades be able to be seen visually on the units themselves, similar to the Marine's shields. However, it has not been determined which upgrades will be seen yet though, as the art is still WIP.
