The ghost academy is a terran structure in StarCraft II. It is required for the production of ghosts and with a factory can produce nukes.

Game StructureEdit

Arm NukeEdit

Main article: Arm Nuke

In StarCraft II, ghosts maintain the ability to launch nukes. The laser pointer has been replaced with a blast footprint visible to the launching player; however, the opponent sees only a red dot.

Notes

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past 50% structural integrity.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

GhostAcademy SC2 Cncpt1

Concept art

The ghost academy uses the former shadow ops render. It was capable of flying in early versions of the game, but this was later removed, as it was decided that only unit-producing structures should be capable of doing so.[3] Such a technique unbalanced the ghost academy in multiplayer, as players could move it to an obscure corner of the map and nuke the enemy at will.[4]
