The Academy / A Conclusive Tech Tree (Ongoing)
« on: September 20, 2012, 09:53:46 AM »
So I have been playing Aurora for about a year, and got frustrated with the fact that there were no tech trees other than the outdated wiki.   So I got access to the database and started building one on my own.   One problem though: It's massive.   I split it into several smaller trees, and am working on each tech category one at a time.   I am including the first few (3) that are 100% complete, and I will put up the rest as I finish them.   They are flowcharts in PDF pages, so the quality of the image will be pretty low, but decent enough to read.   I have included all technologies, including those which are already researched at the beginning of the game (such as the base genetics in the biology tree).   Each tech comes with the cost in parenthesis, example: Capacitor Recharge Rate 1 (1000) <-- the cost is 1000 RP.   If anyone wants an altered version of the trees, for example one with all pre-researched techs removed (I know somebody will recommend this), let me know.   If an idea has enough support, I will do it.   I would prefer not to have too many changes, because this is hard work.   The info comes *directly* from the database, with all cross-references taken into consideration, so please bear with me.   I have been at this for 3 months and only have 3 out of 9 (I think) complete.   I have uni to worry about as well, so work is painfully slow.  

Finally, I hope you all appreciate this, and feel free to transcribe it to the wiki or do whatever, as long as you attribute.   Of course, Steve has the final word considering I am using his database for the source, but so far he is fine with these being released.  

Update for v6.2 - I have the first two categories done, and a new format based on feedback from the community. I've taken down the old versions since they are now outdated and I don't want to confuse people. The new version is basically the same thing, just with a new color code, and better organization. I intend to have the next two up in a few days, but as many of you probably guessed, my schedule isn't too reliable. Without further raving on my part, here are the Power & Propulsion and the Sensors & Fire Control trees for v6.2

Added energy weapons. Chances are most of you will be reading this a few hours from now, so welcome to 2013!  ;D
