[0.15.x] Power Armor should depend on Advanced Electronics 2

Post by Nefarious Zhen »

Power Armor can be researched before Advanced Electronics 2. However you need 40 processing units before you can build power armor.

This is intentional. If every recipe technology had every previous recipe technology as a prerequisite the technology graph would be a giant mess of lines.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

That's an interesting point.

So you're saying, in this case, even though adding the dependency only adds an additional box (i.e. all dependencies of advanced electronics 2 are implicit dependencies of power armor) that it would be silly to add advanced electronics 2 as a dependency (implicit or explicit) to all things that required blue circuits. It feels as if this is already true for advanced circuits 1.

It's possible I never noticed this in the past because once I was this far in science I was way behind in using the technology.

Thanks for the quick answer =).
