The following pages are supposed to provide both an overview and details for the different technology areas, based on Victoria:Revolutions v2.01. Descriptions of the techs are the in-game ones.

Contents

Army

This area involves the development and refinement of your Army and all you land combat units.

  • Army Doctrine
    This is the doctrinal change of your army. New ideas of how to move and defend while increase the defense of your units, increase their speed, and give you the possibility to enhance your fortifications.
  • Light Armament
    This is the development of the main side arms of your units. The applications will upgrade the combat values of your divisions. Better applications within this branch will increase the Fire attack value of your units.
  • Heavy Armament
    This is your heavy support as artillery pieces and mortars. The applications will upgrade the combat values of your artillery detachments. Those detachments will give your units an extra punch that will be formidable with the later applications.
  • Military Science
    This is the scientific evolution of your army. Statistics, logistics and well layed plans became an important facett of war. New applications will increase the organization value of your units.
  • Army Leadership
    This is the education and leadership principles used by your officer corps. Better leadership procedures will increase the organization and morale values of your units.
  • Army Inventions
    List of all inventions linked to army technologies

Navy

This area involves the development and refinement of your Navy and all you ship units.

  • Naval Doctrine
    This is the doctrinal change of your navy. New ideas of how to move, attack and defend. The applications will change the combat values of your ships as tactics and strategies evolve.
  • Ship Construction
    The fighting ships changed enormously over the 19th century. By developing in ship construction you go from sailing ships of wood, over steamships of iron, to turbineships or steel.
  • Naval Engineering
    This is the naval branch that design equipment on your ships. Over time your naval commanders will get numerous of wonderful toys as, Mines, Armor Piercing Projectiles, and On-Board Recon Aircraft.
  • Naval Science
    This is the scientific evolution of your navy. Statistics, logistics and well layed plans became an important facett of war. New applications will increase the organization value of your ships.
  • Naval Leadership
    This is the education and leadership principles used by your officer corps. Better leadership procedures will increase the organization and morale values of your ships.
  • Navy Inventions
    List of all inventions linked to naval technologies

Commerce

This area involves the development and refinement of your Economy and especially the efficiency of your budget investments.

  • Financial Institutions
    Financial Institutions are organizations that improve the flow of financial assets in your country. The development goes from having not even private banks to instituting a bank inspection board.
  • Monetary System
    A functional economy needs a working monetary system. It needs a balanced money stock for the economic transactions to be done smoothly. Also an effective regulation is needed.
  • Economic Thought and Critique
    The scientific development of Economics gave large repercussions into the functions of the world economy, both on a micro and macro level. New ideas and knowledge was swiftly applied by business and the state to increase the efficiency of their work.
  • Market Functionality
    This area centres around the functionality of the market. It concerns both the number of actors on the market and the level of regulations to guide its performance.
  • Organization
    This area concerns the internal development of the firms. Internal production procedures and business styles changed over time and cooperated with the changes in economic science.
  • Commerce Inventions
    List of all inventions linked to commerce technologies

Culture

This area involves the development and refinement of your Culture. Applications give Prestige in proportion to when you get them. However, there is little prestige for the late-comer. They also give you societal bonus for reforms and your population management.

  • Aesthetics
    This area involves the development and refinements in Literature, Art and Music.
  • Philosophy
    This area is the development of thoughts in general. Specifically though it is the change view of the human being and its consciosness, it is also a discussion concerning the metaquestion of what we can know anything about. However, the areas that Philosophy undertakes is so big it could be called 'a forthgoing discussion about everything'.
  • Social Thought
    This area covers the developments in the social sciences and in much influences how the fabric of your society is organized.
  • Political Thought
    This area covers the developments in political science and influence the political system of your country and change the attitudes of your population.
  • Psychology
    This area covers the developments in psychology. It changed not only mankinds view of itself but also created systematic knowledge in behaviour especially on a macrolevel.
  • Culture Inventions
    List of all inventions linked to cultural technologies

Industry

This area involves the development and refinement of your Industry and especially the efficiency of your factories. Note that the applications that enhances Power often are prerequisited for many other applications.

  • Power
    This area involves the development of power and engines. Note that each application within this area is the prerequisite for each other application at the same level within the technology branch of Industry.
  • Mechanization
    This area involves the development of mechanizations in the factories of your country. It concerns both machinery, tools and working procedures.
  • Metallurgy
    This area involves the development and refinement of metal and minerals. Different techniques of cleaning, roasting, grinding and smelting decreased the losses of resources that had often occured earlier.
  • Infrastructure
    This area involves the development of railroad from early 19th century horse-and-wagon to the integral railsystems of the early 1920s.
  • Chemistry and Electricity
    This area involves the development of chemistry and electricity and all its spinoffs.
  • Industry Inventions
    List of all inventions linked to industrial technologies

Key Technologies

A list of all technologies which are prerequisites for more than the normal technologies and thus are potential bottlenecks for the research progress.
