@Littlebob86 As for your last point, I've read that the values you see in diplomacy are unlike the stats of previous Civ games. They don't show your relations, but they merely modify per turn your relation. Therefore you may have +18 per turn and the AI still hates you like nobody else in the game. @Siesta Guru Thanks for the feedback. I already feared that my suggestions might be out of the question, nevertheless I find it important. Do you have an idea if we will ever be able to mod the game like I suggested? AI for me is the »make or break« issue in terms of long time motivation. I quit Civ 5 because the AI was atrocious.
