    Default Disable Crono Boost Upgrade-less Tech Buildings

    Example: I got both Psi Strom and HT energy upgrades. I can still boost the Templar Archives building. The system shouldn't let me do that. Such tech buildings should be treated like a Dark Shrine.

    Not that this matters a whole lot, but why not?

    Probably just not worth the effort. What chrono boost does is filter what it can be cast on by having buildings be qualified as a production building or a research building. If it is neither, then it cant be cast on it. In order for the system to acknowledge that your archives is no longer a research building it would have to do some checks and somehow change the state of it into something else.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the effort = less than 20 minutes of programing.

    And it matters so little, that its not worth that effort.

    Well, at a glance yes, that might work, but if your opponent is smart and knows the animation for the Templar Archives researching something, he won't fall for it. The top part of the building moves up and down slightly and is lit up when you're researching.

    Minerals, not be a pain in the a$$ but, it's "Khaydarin Amulet" :P

    I would hope players are competent enough not to use Crono Boost on buildings that have nothing to research in the first place.
    SC2 handle - "DrakeyC, code 929"

    I ARE A PROPHET! I've predicted three major aspects of SC2 correct, more or less.

    June 2007 - I predicted the Protoss campaign would give you new tech as you conducted diplomacy among tribes.

    Hidden Content:
    July 18th 2010 - I predicted Raynor would broadcast information of Mengsk's actions on Tarsonis to discredit him and incite rebellion.


    Hidden Content:
    June 16th 2010 I predicted the Voice in the Darkness was the commanding force behind the Hybrids. I'm calling it half-right.

    Well it brings in strategy. Besides who cares?

    Chronoing inactive building would be strategic but it really wouldn't make a HUGE difference.
