This thread is to promote and improve the Cold War Tech Tree Extension. It is designed to make a game technologically interesting for the entire time frame of Armageddon, that is up until the mid-60's. When Paradox came out with Doomsday, they added a few techs to get up to 1953. When Armageddon came out, the playable time was extended to December 1963 but no new technologies were added. Although no hot nuclear war happened (thank goodness!) the period was nevertheless a period of great technological advances in naval warfare, rocketry, electronics, nuclear energy use, robotics, computers, etc. This project is an effort to properly reflect these advances in an expanded tech tree. I hope it will help spur the development of a good cold war mod.
For those of you who like playing an Armageddon game up until the 1960s, this will make it more interesting.
Although it is related to the Fatherland Project, the tech tree is designed to be valid for the real cold war (1945-65 segment) and any alternate history cold wars as well (e. g. divided Japan, Japan and Germany have a fallout after winning World War 2, etc)
It is designed to allow you to load up a normal game as early as the 1936 scenario and see how that plays out in the postwar period.
