Crushing with Terran buildings?

Hi,

I just finished some tests on the behavior of landing with Terran buildings in Starcraft 1 Brood War.
Here are the results:
-If the building need to move to reach the landing point, and an unit get in landing zone before, you will get an audio message "landing sequence interrupted" (but no text), and the landing won't be done.
-If the building is already at right position, start landing, and you quickly slip an unit under, the building will land, and the unit will start moving to get away (like a SCV that just finished building something)
-If the building is already at right position, start landing, and you quickly slip a tank that will go in siege mode, a zerg that will burrow, or a spider mine deployed by a vulture, then that unit will get destroyed.
-If the building is already at right position, start landing, you quickly slip an unit under, then use Lockdown, Stasis Field or Maelstrom, the unit will ignore the special status and move to get away after the landing (could be considered a bug I guess)

Now based on the section, you may have guessed my question, but how does it work in Starcraft 2?
The most boring, but possible answer, would be that now the landing sequence can be interrupted and reversed at any point and this is what always happen, but even if it's that, I still want to know.

So, I have tried to answer my own questions regarding behavior in SC2:
Code
-Case 1 (unit moveable go at landing position after building start to move):
        The unit under will move out of the way (like units do when attempting to place a building in general)
-Case 2 (unit moveable go under building landing just before it land):
        The unit under will move out of the way (like units do when attempting to place a building in general)
-Case 3 (unit slip under building landing, then become unmoveable thanks to burrowing (only had the window mine, could have tested tank too, but probably the same):
        The building will give an error message and not try to land.It is reactive no matter how you try to replay the scenario.
-Case 4 (unit slip under building landing, then become unmoveable due to spell):
        Those Terran idiots don't have any proper spell for that anymore, could not test.

Got someone to do a decent impersonation and then used professional audio engineers to make it sound like the original actor

IlyaSnopchenko -- Sure doesn't sound perfect... nothing is. I know it's better than my own attempts at voiceacting (but I'll have to resort to that, too; I've just been putting that off for ages).

Oh_Man -- oh right, yeh if ur trying to do additional dialogue for dead or unavailable actors then its ur only option. it still doesnt sound perfect though

IlyaSnopchenko -- I'm 99% satisfied with the results Jun3hong was able to extract from Elevenlabs for our project... but of course YMMV
[2024-2-29. : 8:29 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- It is a good solution for original characters, I guess, but if you want to visit a canon character, there's bound to be issues.

Oh_Man -- the alternative is go on voices dot com or some pay to play sites and hire some cheap talent

Sila12 -- Nothing

IlyaSnopchenko -- Mind you, it was almost impossible to get decent expressions for Zeratul, mostly because he is very much emotionless most of the time in his real voice lines. Which is understandable for story reasons, of course, but not beneficial for our purposes. :-)

IlyaSnopchenko -- I feel it's good enough, and the alternative is having nothing at all. And sometimes, in our case, Jun3hong got surprisingly good performance out of the AI. You can ask him how many attempts it took him.
