Proposal:
Add some historical data to all the tech we can research in the tech tree.

Have you Checked the Ideas section for the same idea posted by someone else? Is this idea similar to one that has been previously suggested?
Yes, but I am formatting that idea and reposting it. Link to original: https://forum.en.forgeofempires.com/index.php?threads/tech-tree-database.39458/

Reason:
It would be cool to have some background as to what we are researching, not really urgent, just would be nice:)

Details:
When you click into a technology, there is a button for ‘Additional information’, and when you click on it, it will show some info about the technology, such as who invented it, when was it invented, etc. Only applicable to technology that has been invented, of course. (Basically only for tech from Stone Age to Comtemporary)

Visual Aids:
Don’t know how to use Photoshop, sorry
Balance:
No balance required, does not change the gameplay in any way whatsoever.

Abuse Prevention:
Can’t be abused.

Summary:
Add background historical information to the tech tree.

I have seen this idea before. Did you post it somewhere else as well?

This wasn’t me, I formatted this idea and reposted it.

It came up in a discussion thread somewhere but I can't remember where exactly either
Here, I believe

I think that although this may be nice, it would involve a considerable amount of work to implement correctly, and that the time would be better spent elsewhere. This is mainly because anyone who really wants this information could easily look it up themselves.

No thank you. Doesn't make the game any better and I never read the stories. They don't make the game any better either.

Like all other games, I like that their own Wiki page has all the infos you need, such as character Bios. It's the game's community that like to datamine and post their findings/facts in their spare time. It's fun for them, so why take that fun away by having the Devs implement it in the game?

But you can suggest this for the FoE Wiki admins to take a look at, just forward them this thread. They might create a page dedicated to FoE Research tree history. More fun for them.

Interesting! I’ll consider it:)
