How should I know where the Orz live?
« on: May 07, 2006, 05:32:30 am »

When I chanced upon the Orz, one of the dialogue options mentioned the Androsynth, or some other race. But I hadn't asked about that race; its name hadn't appeard on my Starmap where the Orz turned out to be stationed, so I shouldn't logically have had that option to ask. 

I know that this would require a Boolean variable, perhaps called "Know-where-the-Androsynth-live" that would be carried everywhere just for this one line, but this is a notification of an improvement for somewhere along your to-do list.

It's part of the backstory. Something which was originally mentioned in the SC2 manual.

Also, if you ask Commander Hayes about the Hierarchy while at the starbase, he'll mention that those are the Androsynth's home stars. It's a detail that's easily missable, but it's certainly there and accessable right at the beginning of the game. I assume this, plus the backstory, are why it was considered a given that the player would know.

And the original Hyperspace map that came with the game listed the old spheres of influence (with the androsynth where the Orz are).
