Heh, true. I guess we'll all just have to agree to disagree. Besides, whether Stukov is Psychic or not has no real bearing on a remake of Resurrection IV. Sorry again for derailing the thread Gradius ^_^'
I never said Narud commanded Zerg in HotS (though, technically the Hybrids he commands are half Zerg ;P)
What I was getting at is that Stukov said Moebius experimented on him, and Narud is in charge of Moebius. Ok I'm making an assumption here, but given his presence in Skygeirr and as I say being in charge of Moebius it doesn't seem terribly unlikely that Narud might have been involved in the experiments on Stukov when he was held in Skygeirr, which is what I was referring to, not when Kaloth experimented on him.
I also recall Stukov specifically wanting revenge on Narud for his re-infestation.
Mind you, I would not be at all suprised if Narud was somehow involved in the events of Resurrection IV somehow behind the scenes in some form (quite literally in his case)... afterall he does seem to like experimenting with Hybrids and such <<
Also, my apologies to Gradius for his thread getting a bit derailed ^_^'
It's also possible that non psionic Terrans who are very strong-minded are able to retain some of their own mind rather than becoming slaves (such as Ethan Stewart, though he was somewhat of a special project by Kerrigan but even she wasn't sure if he would retain his mind through the process in the book) so maybe being psionic just increases the odds of retaining your mind.
But as said it sounds like Stukov was part of a specific attempt to make an intelligent Infested Terran.
Something else to consider: In HotS Kerrigan demonstrates how dangerous Zerg with Terran ingenuity can be. Maybe Kaloth had suffered Terran ingenuity and so was trying to make a commander capable of retaining that.
I suppose another possibility is that even if Stukov wasn't actually psychic maybe he had one of the high non Ghost level Psi-index, so not psychic but more 'latent psychic'. But that's just theory. As Soul said there's zero evidence he was psychic, and considering we only have three examples of Infested Terrans who retained their intellect, all performed by a powerful Zerg Individual (Overmind - Kerrigan, Kerrigan - Ethan Stewart, Kaloth and (presumably) Narud - Stukov) we don't really have conclusive common factors for infestation. Those individuals may well add an additional X-factor to the whole thing than just standard infestation.
I think the only reason he used a Ghost sprite in SC1 was it was the only armed, military looking normal human not wearing power armour sprite and as GN said he appeared in game for all of 30 seconds (in the BW campaign) before being killed. There's 0 lore that I recall to suggest he was a Ghost of any sort. If he were to have any weapon I'd suggest maybe a Pistol of some kind? And even that would need new animations.
Concerning the model, that looks really really cool Ghost! I knew you'd do a good job :)
One suggestion though: Is there any way to make his glow team coloured? If not maybe make it White or Brown (I remember those being the two colours mainly used by the UED forces)?
