For all who would like to use wiki tech for creation of tech categories (see Tech Tree Design Uberthread), I have created this template. --Piotrus 07:16, 28 Nov 2004 (EST)

Note: this is an alpha version, pending your comments and offical answers to some questions I think must be adressed ASAP.

Category

All related wiki articles should have a category - i.e. kind of a alphabetical index of all relevant articles.

Tech tree structure

Mostly on hold pending answers to questions from Note 1 above.

Tree structure. 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2...

Specific tech data

Official guidelines: Effects#Tech Below, crossed out, my unofficial suggestions, now mostly adressed in official document above.

  • Name: Name of the technology. Numbers can be used to show place in the tree.
  • Category: Name of the relevant category. Numbers can be used to allow category differentiation between techs.
  • Fluff description: flavour text (please see Brainstorming, Tech tree - other dimension (fluff))
  • Levels: It is unclear ATM to me if FO tech will have levels and if so how it will be related to refinements
    • Maximum level
    • Starting level
    • Level Cost: The cost to increase one level in this tech area. It is unclear to me if the cost increases or remains stable as the levels get higher. If tech research includes probability of discovery this may also be adressed here (please see Brainstorming, Tech tree - other dimension (probability)).
    • Names of Tech Req: Names of tech required to be completed before this one can be researched

Example:

  • Name: Tech example (007)
  • Category: Construction or Economics or Learning or Production or Growth (1-5)
  • Fluff description: tech example is used to illustrate how specific tech should be described in all releavant categories, so they can be easily unified later
  • Levels: It is unclear ATM to me if FO tech will have levels and if so how it will be related to refinements
    • Maximum level 10
    • Starting level 1
    • Level Cost: 10000, n2=2*n1,
    • Names of Tech Req: Tech Category (3-001) and Tech Tree (3-003)

Template aka mediabox

Main wiki article should have the following mediabox, designed to ease navigation between main sections - i.e. kind of a table of content.

Tech Category series
Construction
Economics
Learning
Production
Growth
