Detecting psi storm

Postby butter » Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:45 am

Would it be possible to tell where psi storm has been cast even if there are no units under it at the moment?

In my (limited) testing, it doesn't appear that a Psionic Storm is represented as a unit or in any readable form. While something like a Disruption Web is clearly represented (ID: 105), I'm not sure why it's inconsistent.

However, if a Psionic Storm is never physically represented in some format, there are alternatives to consider:

A High Templar casting Psionic Storm will have the order 142. You can also identify where the storm is being cast, and plan accordingly. Obviously this method will never be perfect, but if you see a High Templar about to cast Psionic Storm on one of your units, it wouldn't hurt to tell that unit (and other units) to spread out.

Hope this helps some.
