We printed it at 2 pages high, 3 pages wide in landscape format.
Even at that size, the text is quite small, but it is a big tech tree
Yes I could have done the cut-and-paste thing with my spiffy printer but I knew it would be rather tough to read not to mention handle. Plus it would still not give me all that pertinent R&D data I'd like to see. I'm surprised BG didn't do a plain text document of the pages of tech data put together just so that we can have it in one handy document to see what techs there are and what they do.
While the tech tree .pdf file is nice it just is too unwieldy and uninformative. While it shows what leads to what it does not explain what anything is. I sure hope that BG will provide a text document of the tech tree compiling all those nice pages of tech items in the game in a format that would be easier for SR2010 customers to peruse at their leisure.
I mean how else does a budding supreme ruler go about conquering the world if he doesn't have the correct "intel"???
One thing is that your tech tree & R&D routine is light years ahead of hearts of iron's. While you list a "suggested" time to complete a research that does not mean you can just count on it to be absolutely done on that "suggested" day, unlike in hoi where you could just count up the days of the research items needed for the A bomb and know for certain when you'd get it.
