Is there a good software to create a "tech tree" type diagram?
("Tech tree" is typically a word I thought of from Civilization video games tech tree. But here I'd see uses in completely different domains that have nothing to do with video games.)
I know that I could make it from a random diagram in various diagram softwares (such as draw.io, Visual Paradigm... ).
But here are a few things that would come handy:
- when adding a node, other nodes could reorganise in a readable way (like I add a new node that is a requirement for a series of nodes, that series of nodes gets pushed forward ... a bit like in a MS Project Gantt chart but I don't think Gantt chart is what I'm looking for.)
- each node should be able to have multiple dependencies and be dependencies for multiple other nodes, and they would reorganise in "tiers". Another way I would define a tech tree would be a kind of "reverse family tree but were one can have more than two parents, where tiers are generations".
- Nice to have but not all required: each node could have some extra properties/colour/maybe a picture
Some precision after questions:
- Software: I mean an already existing product.
