    We could just ask for open borders in our initial contact letter, no strings attached, and see what happens. No need to give them ideas unnecessarily. :)


    Greetings people of the north! Our brave but very tired sailors are beside themselves with joy at finally seeing signs of civilization. They are eager to enjoy the hospitality of your shores, if you are willing to grant them safe passage through open borders. As you can see, their mission of discovery is entirely peaceful and therefore you have nothing to fear from granting them this boon.

    Messages can be delivered to our diplomatic council via Team.Mad.Scientists@gmail.com. We hope to hear a response swiftly so that our sailors' voyage is not delayed.

    Respectfully,
    [insert name] of the Mad Scientists

    Dave, has that message been sent?

    I think it should be.

    Anyone else?

    A good response, especially because we have only you as diplomat.

    Apparently Saturn is waiting for our response, unless it is Kaz they are waiting for.

    Sorry I didn't post in this thread as well - I sent the proposed response about 1/2 day ago. :blush:

    Spoiler text of response :
    Again, our deep apologies for the delayed response. We tried to get one out on the same day, but not enough voices had weighed in before now.

    We agree that we should work together on tech, but, as you noted, since neither of us has Alphabet yet that makes current trades impossible. Our immediate priority is domestic affairs. As such we don't plan on researching Alphabet any time soon. But after Calendar, perhaps we will, at which point we can nail down some trades.

    Have you already approached Kazakhstan regarding the trade for MC and Archery?

    Death To SANCTA!!

    It sounds like they are mostly upset that we have not responded at all.

    Looking at Peter Grime's previous contacts, it appears we are not that interested in the trade since we have other arrangements with the TTA to gain the techs offered (if I understand correctly). Peter also thought it a bad idea to let it be known that there is almost no team support, since that is an invitation to get dogpiled. I do not know if that is true since this is my first Demo game ever.

    See my other post for suggested reply. I suggest we reject the specific offer but indicate our willingness to cooperate. We have no immediate need for MC and archery. Maybe they come up with a better offer later.
