The research topics leading up to the Modern University are "grayed out" and will not allow me to research them. I have all of the previous tech steps in this area. I have constructed the School, the Secular College and the University. I have played factions other than the Ottoman Empire and have never experienced this problem before.

Are you sure? You know you can only build a Modern University in your home region, right? Or are you saying that research items like Utilitarianism are grayed out?

Thanks for responding. I am attempting to build a Modern University in Anatolia. The entire bracket that includes Secular Humanism is "grayed out". I was wondering if, since this is the Ottoman Empire, that they would not, or could not change from their religious framework to a secular (non-religious)framework and still be historically accurate?

I'm actually fairly new to ETW since I'm on a Mac and the Feral Interactive port to Mac only came out last year. So I have't played as Ottomans yet.

Now, I've certainly for-sure seen Ottoman Modern Universities (MU) in games. You say Secular Humanism and that branch is grayed out, so perhaps Ottoman's don't get these, still, having the Rights of Man tech should be sufficient. As I read it, National Debt and Secular Humanism may be nice to haves but not required for a Modern University. For MU, what you need is a classical university to upgrade and Rights of Man tech.

I thought Rumelia was the Ottoman capital - unless lost Istanbul and had to move it. You can't build MU's anywhere except your capital.

If none of this explains it, maybe it's a bug.

All of the techs are grayed-out below the University level. I do not have an educational building in the Istanbul area. I'll try to set that up and see what happens. Thanks again. UPDATE-2/11/13. I built the Modern University near Istanbul and the aforementioned techs appeared! When I have played other factions, a school was already in the capitol area. Thanks for steering me in the right direction.
