    Sounds similar to advisors in EU III.

    That tech system definately sounds very promising.

    I haven't really a clue about the alerts, but wonder why they all have an exclamation mark except the one with the arrows.

    "For each type of technology you can appoint a character to a position in the government, where his skill will amongst other things affect the progress in this field."

    Sounds just like a military advisor in EU III.

    But there is also the "amongst other things" portion of the quote which could mean anything.

    So those discoveries are country-specific, not province-specific? In any case sounds very good. And I must say again that the map actually looks great.
    "The elemental truth must be stressed that the characteristic of any country before its industrial revolution and modernisation is poverty..." Mathias, First Industrial Nation, pg. 5
    "The Central Committee and the government are in possession of definite proof that this massive exodus of the peasants has been organized by the enemies of the Soviet regime, by counterrevolutionaries, and by Polish agents as a propaganda coup against the process for collectivization in particular and the Soviet Government in general" - USSR leadership about famine & migration caused by bolshevik policy of confiscating all food despite human losses. Stéphane Courtois et al, The Black Book of Communism, pg. 164.

    Exactly, this is what I was referring to. I think advisors in EU: Rome will have more effects than in EU3. A High Priest was mentioned in an earlier diary as having an influence on whether omens will be positive or negative, and I don't think there is a seperate High Priest and religious technology advisor - more likely the High Priest will also affect the progress in religious technology. Similarly, an army commander will probably both lead armies in battle and affect the progress in land technology, perhaps also increase the manpower generation and so on.

    This also leads me to think there are character stats corresponding to each of the positions, like in CK. Perhaps political/rhetorical skill = civics, piety = religion or something like that.

    Discoveries sounds a bit like the way the invention side of tech worked in Vicky, which is very cool.

    This technology system sounds fantastic. The 'discoveries' idea is ingenious, and fits well the indirect 'grand' scale the game has. Most importantly, it suits reality: innovations rely a lot on the people, and a governor's prowess has limited effect; with this new system, the governor has to stimulate others to innovate, rather than being able to affect everything. This makes important the people's ability to progress. While the governor may be the player's genius incarnate, history doesn't have modern players influencing it. The people need to be able to innovate, and the focus should be around what they can achieve. I think this system is a brilliant way about it.

    I hope progress in one area will be able to affect progress in another. All the areas are interlinked, and the intellect of one usually ends-up coming to another. Look at Plato: he was a mathematician, yet what he's famous for is his contribution to philosophy. Outpourings of intellect affect all aspects of life: look at the Greeks and the Scottish enlightenment.

    Maybe.... but it could be just the perspective of a fixed camera angle and its relative position within the minimap.
