1.3 Technology tree
Every town is different, and there are different people in every town. You can give your town bonuses during its development. Some technology points can be focused on resources others on war
and some on totally different things. You can spend a total of 4 technology points from top to bottom.
Each time a tech point becomes available, you need to choose which benefit your town will gain. Each choice you make will limit your options for the next choices.
In the picture beneath you can see the colors outlining the different choices. For example when you choose the 'Extremist' bonus (Red choice), your next available options will only be
'Farmer' or 'Sawmill' (also Red choices).
When you secondly choose the 'Sawmill' option (Red/Brown choice), you can choose the 'Mercenaries','Drill Sergeant' or 'State militia' options (Red/Brown choices).
So keep in mind which 4 options you want, before choosing your bonus.
You choose a technology by clicking on the name of the desired option.
