...how do I declare war on a country that won't talk to me??? I'm sure there is a very simpe answer to this, but I can't find it. In Civ 3 it was a simple matter of walking up to one of their units and saying 'yes, I want to declare war' when you tried to occupy the same tile, but now it seems to be all done through the diplomacy screen. Problem is that the country I want to annihilate (because they will win the Space race if I don't and I have a much bigger army) aren't talking to me and we have closed borders, so there seems to be no way for me to get a war started other than wait till they start talking again?? Help please, cos it's driving me nuts!
