StarCraft Updated To Version 1.16
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has once again updated StarCraft, the company's popular sci-fi RTS. In addition to bug fixes Version 1.15 introduces recording of in-game chat for replays, and a new "/reply" command for quickly responding to whispers from other players.

Here is the list of changes in version 1.16:

Feature Changes:
- In-game chat is now saved in replays. Note: whispers are not saved.
- Hitting the Escape key while in the chat room will clear your typed text.
- "/reply" (or just "/r") will send a whisper to person who most recently whispered you.

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed localization issues with "from" and "to" in whispers.
- Starcraft now only uses as much CPU as it needs to run smoothly.

Exploits:
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to gain minerals through mutations.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to recycle an upgrading building.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to extend their creep with a drone.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Zerg players to move Drones over impassable terrain.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed Terran players to drop a nuke anywhere on the map.
- Fixed an exploit which allowed players to pause the game while in the pre-game lobby.
