All about workers

Postby Heinermann » Tue Jun 24, 2008 11:09 pm

OK. Some people are making a fuss about one race's workers accelerating, attacking, mining, and/or moving differently than another. Time to theorycraft. I'll also include the primary building stats as well.

Statement: Probes mine/accelerate faster than the other two races.
Fact: False. Flingy states the acceleration of the unit is equal to the other two races. Even if IScript instructions were a factor in the speed it mines, it wouldn't make any visible difference, even over a long period of time. The reason why probes only APPEAR to gather minerals more quickly is because of the Nexus and its unit properties in comparison with the other races' primary structure.

Q: Why do SCVs decelerate when returning resources to the command center?
A: My best guess is one of the unit properties the Command Center has that the other race's primary structures don't; example: "Flying building"; extra properties 0x1, 0x4, 0x40, and 0x80

Statement: Drones mine the slowest of all three races.
Fact: Not quite. Drones only take longer to return resources to the Hatchery because the Hatchery is the smallest primary structure of all races.
