    Is it worth it to haggle with Indians or Europeans? I tend to just have them tell me what they want for something, rather than guess. It tends to be a fair price; I've sort of stopped doing the math b/c it's annoying!

    You can still haggle? I tried it a few times but they never accepted a higher price. Like you I now just accept what they offer me. If im making a profit of course. But the math is quite easy now since when you hoover over the good you get the euro prices. Which is a great improvement. :)

    One time, I played a game where I was at war with the Spanish colony, and I asked him for 30 gold for peace. (Not much, I know, just fooling around with the trade system)

    He gave it to me for free! We weren't even fighting or anything. I didn't send any troops at him. But we were still at war, so maybe he felt threatened.

    I actually miss the haggling of Col1. It created tension in terms of how much you wanted to push them and it made trade more interesting. Yet another feature of Col1 that was stupidly ejected from this version...

    That's something that can be readded in a player mod, maybe. The Civ4 diplomacy system was about carbon-copied for this game, which is both a blessing and a curse.

    Me too. You needed money and asked for a little more and <bang> they went mad and sent you away. Relations worsened and you left with an unsold load.

    And is it true that you can only trade all or nothing with them? I can't use shift to select a couple of coats, for example...

    As far as I can tell, no, you can't sell only part of what you have.

    And no, even suggesting 1 gold more than their given price will make them refuse the deal.

    which is a joke compaired to the original game.

    clearly the broken AI trade mechanics from CivIV have also been included.

    What do you mean about broken AI trading mechanics? It's not like they are giving each other fantastic deals on technologies and leaving you in the Stone Age.

    Listen, maybe the haggling isn't the same, but are we sure that asking for better deals isn't having diplomatic effects? Sometimes they very grudgingly accept, when they accept. It "sounds" like they're unhappy when they don't say things like "Cha-CHING"
