Is there any downside to giving in to an AI demand for $ and or a map? I'm playing C3C on Monarch, and am currently number 2 in VP. We're rigth on the cusp on Industrialism. The Arabs demanded 80 gp and a World Map. I gave it to them because I have already traded the map to them a few turns previously and don't feel like dealing with a war if I don't have to. I have plenty of $ in the treasury, so the 80 is no big deal.
My question is: will my caving in negatively impact me in future negotiations?

Actually and conversely, it will help. If you give in to an AI demand, that AI will get an attitude boost toward you.
Not sure of the permanence of this shift; check Bamspeedy's AI Attitude article for more info.

not really giving into demands is like giving to AI a gift, it sometimes improves there attitude towards you but thats it.
personlly I almost never give into demands unless I'm FAR weaker and MUCH less advance then the AI that demands something. I would reder go to war :hammer:
oh if the AI is giving you ALOT of gold per turn and is about equal or stronger than you it might be in your best interest to give them what they want, unless you want to conquer them :hammer: :mwaha:

This reminds me of a similar question I've had. I know that if the AI declares war on me and I beat them soundly and then negotiate for peace, they will be furious with me until the end of time. But what happens if the AI kicks your butt and then agrees to peace? Will their attitude improve or will they still be furious?
